Dylan is a 2023 RHP/OF prospect who worked hard on his skills during the National World Series at Pirate City. A right-handed pitcher, he has a confident demeanor and some feel for pitching. He starts 45 degrees on the rubber and glove is centered. Clean leg lift, with a good balance point, and separates his hands on time. Works with good direction down the mound and extends out front. Throws a FB that sat 78-80mph with some arm side run, a 10/4 shaped breaking ball that he throws for strikes, and a changeup he throws with fastball arm speed. He fields his position well and does a good job of controlling the run game. In 5 innings of work, he punched out 4 batters and only allowed 1 hit. A right-handed hitter, he showed a flat barrel path and made hard contact to all fields with a bat exit velocity up to 90mph during BP. Strong kid and the ball jumps off his barrel. In live game action, he was 5 for 7 with 2 triples, a double, 2 singles, and a base on balls. In the OF, he showed a loose arm, with a low 3/4 arm slot, and accurate throws into infield with an arm velocity up to 79mph.

He fields the ball out in front making clean exchanges to throw. He gets rid of the ball quick with a loose arm action delivering accurate throws. Hitting, Dylan shows a relaxed and tall stance with low and comfortable hands. As he starts his swing, he gets his foot down on time firing his lower half through getting the barrel on plane. He makes consistent contact with a line drive approach looking to do damage every pitch. On the mound, Dylan shows a 3-pitch mix with a FB/CB/CH. The FB shows a high command percentage, the CB is 11-5 with medium break, and the CH is deceptive with AS run and FB arm speed. Pitching, Dylan starts with a simple starter step and gathers over the rubber separating on time with a clean arm action. He keeps his stride in line and gets good length but can improve by finishing more in front of his body. Dylan is young and will continue to grow and mature.
