PBR Future Games Preview: 2018 LHP/1B Dillon Marsh

By Greg Williams

Pennsylvania Director of Scouting 

On August 4th through August 6th, PBR Pennsylvania will take a select team of players in the Classes of 2018 and 2019 to represent Pennsylvania at the PBR Future Games at Grand Park in Indianapolis, IN.

Players receive exposure unlike any other event for underclassmen. Last year, more than 130 colleges from all over the country were in attendance, including coaches from every Division I power conference in the nation. Only players who have a legitimate shot at being a Division I recruit and who have an interest in the possibility of making a verbal commitment during their sophomore or junior seasons have been considered.

Date: 7/20/16

Scouting Report: 
Recently back on the market, the physical 6-foot-2, 210-pounder continues to progress. Chest-high leg lift with slight pause coming out of balance point leading with front hip. Athletic on the mound, he pitches out of a high three-quarter slot with loose arm action and good arm speed. Fastball sat 84-87 and had good plane to it. Nibbled too much early, but pounded the zone better in his second and third innings. Mid-70s change-up flashes plus with sink/fade and good sell, and he trusts it enough to throw it against left-handed hitters. Curveball that used to be very flat continues to develop depth and shows 11/5 shape at 70-72 now.

Date: 2/14/16

Scouting Report: 
6-foot-2, 205-pound two-way prospect sat 86-87 from an high 3/4 arm slot. Displayed up-paced tempo and repeatable delivery with easy, clean arm action. Commanded fastball down in the zone with late life and some arm-side run. 76 mph change up continues to be a quality second offering at fastball arm speed. Curveball development will come. 1/7 breaker was better on this day sitting 68-71, especially when thrown with quicker arm action.

Wake Forest commit has a legitimate chance to contribute with the bat for the Demon Deacons as well. Ran a 6.91 60-yard dash and posted 97-mph exit velocity. Left-handed hitter starts with weight on his front side and unleashes an easy stroke with good bat speed when he gets it loaded back prior to launch. Hands work well and he did a nice job of getting the barrel to pitches on the inner part of the plate and still keeping the ball fair during his BP round. Moves well defensively in both the infield and outfield, where he showed 91-mph arm strength.
