Prospect Spotlight

Dewees is an old school, slash the ball in the gaps type of hitter, with good feel for the barrel and plus speed. That has translated to eight extra-base hits (four doubles and four triples) and a .405/.460/.690 slash line to start the season. Dewees has a selectively aggressive approach, but he understands that his primary role is to get on base and ignite the offense, so he has done a good job of drawing walks early this season. What has enhanced his value as a prospect is that Dewees has taken well to center field, showing good range, though his arm is well-below average. He still projects as a top-of-the-order hitter. – John Arguello
