    Dove doesn't have much going for him besides a live arm, but that will be enough to get him drafted in the first two rounds. He repeatedly generates mid-90s heat, though it comes in straight and has been hit hard this spring. He relies almost solely on his fastball because he lacks a usable second pitch. He has a hard slider but throws it in the dirt more often than he does in the strike zone. Dove has tended to dominate below-average hitters who chase pitches, but he won't face nearly as many at the next level. He'll be a project and probably a late-inning reliever for whom refining his slider will be crucial.
