Dylan is an athletic and talented 2022 Catching prospect that is eager to learn and made several adjustments throughout the week at Vero Beach. Behind the dish, he leads with his glove and controls balls in the dirt with his chest. He needs to continue to start in a balanced primary/secondary stance and improve his flexibility. He needs to present a low target and work behind the ball when receiving. He has a quick exchange and creates momentum in his lower half when throwing to the bases. At the plate, Dylan starts in a squared stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and stays balanced through contact. He needs to continue to create backside rotation and attack the inside part of the ball. Dylan is a hard worker and will continue to improve with experience.
