Dillon Tate’s Scouting Report

Tate’s stock has risen this season as he converted from a reliever to a starter. He was already viewed as a top prospect before he converted to a starter. Tate displays a great slider to go with a hard fastball and a solid curveball and changeup. His go-to pitch is without a doubt his slider which is the most dominant of the four, it breaks into lefties and away from righties. He doesn’t use his curveball that often and that will need to change as he progresses in the minor leagues. He is mechanically sound as he stays balanced and controlled the whole way to the plate. He releases at a three-quarter slot. Tate is the best pitcher in the draft and is potentially the first overall pick.

Fastball: 91-99 MPH
Changeup: 83-84 MPH
Slider: 85-87 MPH

Dillon Tate’s Best Fit

The Arizona Diamondbacks are the best fit for Dillon Tate, as the team is desperate for pitching. The Diamondbacks already have their ace of the future in Archie Bradley, and Tate could be the perfect number two guy for them.
