07/10/2022 - Cape Cod Select Training & Competition (HS)
Dillon is a 2023 2B/RHP out of Franklin, MA who worked hard to improve his ability at the Cape Cod Training and Competition. At 2B, he starts on the balls of his feet with active feet and gets good reads off of the bat. Closes distance on batted balls as he fields out front from an on-time fielding position with firm hands. Made accurate throws from a 3/4 arm slot, with good momentum towards target, and an arm velocity up to 79mph. At the plate, he hits from an athletic and square stance with comfortable hands. He showed fluid timing to swing with a fast barrel through the hitting zone. He rotates his lower half well as he made consistent contact to all fields. At the event, he reached base on a double to LCF and was hit by a pitch. On the mound, he separates his hands on-time, with a clean arm stroke, and strides in-line towards target. He attacks hitters with a FB that had some arm side run, an 11/5 shaped breaking ball, and an 11/5 shaped slider with tight spin. Showed good feel/command for his FB and breaking ball. In 2 innings of work, he punched out 2 hitters and threw 54% of his pitches for strikes. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for Dillon as he enters his senior year.

Dillon is a 2B in the class of 2023 out of Franklin, MA. Defensively, he displayed active footwork by attacking the baseball and reading hops to catch the ball clean and make all the plays on the diamond. He made accurate throws to his target as well as good feeds on the double play ball. Offensively, he used an open stance with smooth timing to find balance and work directly to the ball with good intent. He stayed through the middle of the field with his approach and showed gap to gap power. Dillon is an aggressive player with good instincts and we believe will get looks from college recruiters soon if not already.
