Dillon is an athletic and hard working 2025 catching prospect. Behind the dish, Dillion starts in a balanced primary stance and presents a low target. He works behind the ball and tracks the ball into his glove when receiving. He leads with his glove to block and creates a good angle over the ball. Improving hip mobility will increase his ability to block laterally. He has a clean exchange, a quick release, and makes accurate throws. At the plate, Dillion starts in an open stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and gets his front foot down on time. He creates backside rotation with his lower half, he shows the ability to hit the ball to the pull side, and has good pitch recognition. He needs to continue to have a middle approach, hunt the fastball, and attack the inside part of the ball. Dillion will continue to improve through experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
