Dustin continues to show a tremendous future on the diamond. At 3B, he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls up. Glove action is soft / sure and presents well out front. He moves well laterally with range improving as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate with zip across diamond but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to shine through a tall setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields. Barrel accuracy is a plus and he utilizes his lower half well with gap-to-gap pop.
