Scouts prefer Dodson on the mound, where his 92-94 mph fastball touches 98 mph with heavy sinking action. He also throws two breaking balls - a hard slider and a sharp curveball - and a changeup that has some depth. He has served as Cal's closer this spring and has found success in the bullpen. If he stays a reliever, he could be a quick mover in the minor leagues. Dodson is an exceptional athlete and gets the most out of his tools as a hitter. The switch-hitter has good bat-to-ball skills and consistently barrels up balls. He is a disciplined hitter who doesn''t give at bats away. He has an unconventional setup at the plate, which limits his power. He is an above-average runner and uses his speed well on the bases. Dodson's biggest impact figures to come as a pitcher, and he projects as a top-two rounds pick, but his strong performance at the plate over the last two years has convinced some that he can also make it as a hitter. That success means whichever team drafts him will have options.
