04/27/2018 - College PREP - Potomac, MD Dean continues to improve as a solid 2 way player in the 2019 class. Shows very good offensive skills at the plate. His hips drive through contact, a short, compact swing reflects very high barrel accuracy. Can drive the ball to all fields and flashes next level power. A solid infielder, he can play SS and 3B seamlessly. Quick first step adds to his range, fields the ball cleanly and works his feet through to make strong accurate throws. On the mound, Dean shows continued versatility. Mixes 4 pitches with strong lower half mechanics and quick arm speed creates deception to hitters. FB topped at 84mph with good natural movement and command. Tosses in 2 breaking pitches, a CB (63-64mph) and SL (70-71) that both break nicely and with their different speeds and shapes, keep hitters off balance. Finished with a very good CH (69-71mph) with a ton of sinking action which should allow Dean to continue to impress.
