    Drafted in the 34th round out of high school by the Blue Jays, Dunning chose to go to Florida, and was a key piece in its top-ranked recruiting class in 2013. Due to the Gators' depth, he has been used mostly as a midweek starter and out of the bullpen during his college career, but has still logged significant innings. Dunning runs his fastball up to 95 mph when he works out of the bullpen, but typically sits in the low 90s over extended outings. His changeup and slider both have a chance to be average offerings, but his slider is inconsistent. Dunning fills up the strike zone and, in early May, had nearly halved his walk rate this season. Though scouts haven't gotten to see him start as often as they would like, Dunning has many of the tools necessary to be a starter and will likely begin his professional career in that role.
