    View Draft Report
    Dalesandro, the son of former big leaguer Mark Dalesandro, was drafted in the 33rd round out of high school by the Tigers. He continued on to Purdue, where he’s played in every game for the last three years. He’s a solid defender behind the plate and has a well above-average arm, which is his best tool. He’s more athletic than most catchers and also saw some time in the outfield in the Cape Cod League. But Dalesandro doesn’t hit for much power and his swing is unconventional, leading to concerns about his hit tool. He has experience as a pitcher and his arm strength means that he may end up back on the mound at some point in the future.
