Scouting Report: Dylan Covey, RHP, Maranatha HS (2010 Draft)

November 2, 2009

Dylan Covey, RHP
(Maranatha HS, Pasadena, Calif.)
DOB: 8/14/1991
6-3, 190
2010 MLB Draft Day age: 18
Report Made Nov. 1, 2009
Games Seen: 3 (Aflac, Angels Elite)
Innings Pitched: 5 (Now seen 4 high school games and 25 innings)

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Power build in upper body; strong shoulders and chest. Power build in lower half, long legs. Durable body built for long haul; plenty of physical projection should be left.

STRENGTHS: Over-the-top delivery, four-seam fastball to 96, two-seam fastball at 92-94, commands both halves at 94 with easy motion, lacks a max-effort delivery. Power curveball 83-86, commands at 86, both halves, cuts plate in half, attacks hitter’s side, not afraid to throw it any time of the count, aggressive but calm demeanor. Change-up at 80-83 is third best pitch – second best pitch for most guys – commands at 76-78, same arm slot as fastball. Repeats delivery and has outstanding balance and coordination for a power pitcher. Excellent arm speed, gets extension, gets on top, creates power downhill place. Lands well, creates deception, has velocity, control and body control. Like his aggressive instincts.

WEAKNESSES: Does need to maintain big body type; did a good job conditioning over summer; showed from Aflac to Angels Elite. No glaring weaknesses as an amateur; needs to go out as pro and begin facing better competition on a routine basis to discover what needs to be refined. In some high school games this spring, struggled to find consistent release points on fastball and curveball. Usually self-corrects in game.

SUMMARY: Power curveball is the seperating factor, pitch has the chance to be the best at his position in the major leagues. The most complete HS RHP available for 2010 Draft. I believe that this starter has the potential to have four above-average major league pitches in the coming years.

GRADES (Present/Future)
Fastball:       70/70
Curveball:   60/80
Slider:           50/60
CH:                 40/60
Control:       40/60

Overall Future Potential (OFP):  66
