Scouting the 2015 Draft: Dillon Tate
Dillon Tate is another college closer, this time from UCSB. He throws very hard, sitting 95-97 and touching 99 MPH. He combines that with a filthy cutter/slider that grades as a 70 by some scouts. He also has a changeup that he does not use much, if at all, as a reliever. He goes 6'2", 185 lbs. His stat line from his 2014 sophomore season: 2-1, 1.47, 43.1 IP, 17 BB, 46 K, 12 Saves. BA has him ranked as the #32 2015 draft prospect while Kiley McDaniel has him a bit higher at #28. He'd be a nice get at #31.
