Two years ago, Dilday was an infielder from Christian HS with explosive bat speed. The bat speed remains, but he has since shifted to the outfield and transferred to Howell HS. He has a loose swing and broke out at the Metropolitan Baseball Classic last summer. He went 5-for-7 that weekend, which was capped by a 3-for-3 performance that included to triples at Citi Field. His strong finish came after a slow start to the showcase circuit as he was recovering from a broken nose. He has a strong frame and should continue to grow into more power down the road. While he struggled at the World Wood Bat Championship in Jupiter, FL, Dilday surely put his name high up on scouts’ follow lists for this spring with his Labor Day Weekend performance at the Mets’ tournament.
