12/11/2020 - Baseball Factory Academic All-American Tournament Dean continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. On the mound, he works to a controlled balance point, has smooth separation and fires from a clean/loose arm action. He gets strong glove-side lead and stays directional toward the dish. Arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 79 mph. FB ranges from 77-79 mph with cutting action. Breaking ball shows 11/5 shape with gradual break. Control is as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to increase as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved through a squared setup. Hands are quick (80 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently.
