Dylan is an athletic, tall (6'1”, 160) well-rounded two-way prospect. He shows the arm action and mechanics that give him potential to develop three above average pitches to carve through a lineup. He currently features a tailing FB at 81mph, a sharp 11-5 CB and a CH with late run. He gets good whip on release that leads to late movement as he pounds the zone and works ahead of hitters. At the dish, his lower half works well to generate bat speed and pull side pop. He shows good hand-eye coordination and can get the barrel to the ball and extend through contact. Shortening his bat path will lead to more consistent square contact. In the outfield, he gets good jumps and is aggressive getting to the ball. He gets behind the ball to field square and play through with momentum to his target. Dylan is an intriguing prospect we expect to have a successful senior campaign.
