Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 60 65 92-94 96 Has life when located down, inconsistent with mechanics and consistency of offering, did a better job locating in the second game than in my first viewing.

Movement - 45/50
Slider 50 60 82-84 85 Late action and movement, looks like FB out of hand with late darting action and tilt, hitters struggle to pick up spin, swing/miss offering, could improve command as he would leave up against LHH.
Curveball 35 40 78-79 79 11/5 shape, get-me-over offering, mixed it in second/third time through the order, change of pace pitch, not a sharp offering but can drop in zone for strikes.
Changeup 35 50 84-85 86 Has feel for offering and uses it vs. LHH, good velo separation off FB, features late tail, inconsistent with feel and location but think it can be a future average offering.
Overall

Dunn got a moderately aggressive assignment, heading to the FSL in his first full professional season. This will also be his first full season starting, as he was a member of the bullpen in college and transstioned to the starting rotation later. Dunn still has a future in the bullpen with his FB/SL combination, but has a lot of promise in the rotation.

Command- 35/50
Control - 45/50
