Kilgore continues to show as a RHP/1B with steady play in his abilities. At the plate is where he continues to show best through a balanced setup. He works on time, showing loose hands through a level swing path. Hitting grades will continue to improve as he increases bat speed. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. At 1B, he works to square balls up and shows clean hands. For defensive grade to continue to improve, he needs improve footwork around the bag and present hands more out front. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 64-69 mph. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup but needs to develop more movement on pitch. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength, throws more strikes.

Dustyn is a young RHP/1B that showed good ability at both positions. At first, he made plays and showed promising aptitude - improving his bag footwork / short hop picks dramatically. Offensively, he focused on rhythm/timing and his balance. He went 1-3 with two walk and proved with continuous drills he could adjust. On the mound, he pounded the strike zone, throwing two pitches for strikes. He was not afraid to throw his fastball, and with a change-up in development, will be a sound pitcher that can change speeds. Overall, Kilgore is a projectable player that has a couple more years to gain strength and develop his game to take it to the next level.

Dustin is a very projectable 6'4 RHP who has a tall/solid frame. On the bump, this righty maintains good tempo while working in-line toward the dish. He keeps his eyes on the target and gets good lead arm extension. He has a 3-pitch mix coming from a 3/4 arm slot. FB shows some run and is thrown for strikes. As a hitter, Dustin displays good balance and a good feel for the barrel. He squares the ball up consistently hitting it to all fields. Creating extension through contact will help to increase power. Kilgore is only a 2016 graduate and will continue to improve with experience and hard work.
