    Dyer expanded his Swiss army knife role in his second season at Arizona. The redshirt junior started games at both second base and third base in addition to his usual role as a corner outfielder and backup catcher. Dyer's versatility is his main selling point. He uses a two-part swing with good hand-eye coordination and enough power for a utility role. Dyer added weight in the offseason to get his tall, lanky frame closer to 200 pounds, but scouts still don't see enough power for him to profile as an everyday corner outfielder. A catcher naturally, Dyer's infield defense is still very much a work in progress. He is a solid-average runner with a plus arm and has a chance to be an average defender at potentially five positions—catcher, second base, third base, left field and right field— with more experience. Dyer was considered a tough sign last year and caused him to go undrafted. He may face the same fate this year, but he will have much less leverage in future years if he returns to school.
