    Dickey has battled his fair share of injuries over the last few years. During the fall of 2022 he had hand surgery and this spring he dealt with a shoulder injury that kept him off the field at times, but when he’s been in the lineup for Tennessee he’s been excellent. The 6-foot-2, 204-pound lefthanded hitter slashed .323/.392/.530 with 12 home runs, a 12.7% strikeout rate and 7.7% walk rate this spring in 60 games. He’s not the best athlete, but Dickey finds a way to barrel the baseball consistently with impressive pure bat speed and a swing that has a lot of moving parts and a late trigger. He hits the ball hard and has homered to the pull side, but there’s some belief that with a swing modification at the next level Dickey could tap into more home run power in games. He was an aggressive hitter this spring who expanded the zone a bit too much, but he made contact at an 81% clip. Prior to the season, there was some thought that Dickey had a chance to catch, but in brief looks behind the plate this spring he didn’t look like a pro catcher. His most likely defensive home is left field, where he could be a fringy defender with fringe-average speed and below-average arm strength. Dickey has a bat-first profile that fits in among the top five rounds.
