11/08/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition in Arizona (Ages 14-18)
Dylan continues to show steady progress in his baseball abilities. Behind the plate, pop times showed in the 2.34 range with accuracy on his throws. Feet are active working in line through a clean transfer / exchange. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to get rid of the baseball quicker. Glove action is soft as he sticks balls well in the zone. He uses his body well through the blocking process but needs to work to get body down sooner. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach and utilizes his lower half well with power showing best to the pull side. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.
09/23/2017 - FDI Hitting Accelerated Training Weekend (12-14)
Dylan is a coachable player who worked hard on his skills during his time at the Hitting Accelerated Training Weekend. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and maintains center balance. He is smooth getting back into his load and finishes with a firm front side in his lower half. He takes a level swing with fast bat speed which leads to consistent contact and line drives to the gaps. Dylan can improve as a hitter by taking a shorter stride. With five more years to develop, Dylan has the time and potential to further progress his skills at the plate.
