"Athletic" and "projectable" are scouting buzzwords more often thrown around in conversations about prep arms, but scouts often apply them to Dibrell too. He's progressed each year that he's been at Kennesaw State, and he's become the ace of the Owls' staff as a junior. Dibrell's velocity has fluctuated throughout the season, but he's reached the mid-90s late in some starts, and his plus arm speed points to further velocity gains. He's thrown two breaking balls in the past--he's shown an in-betweener this spring with sharp 11-to-5 shape--it projects as an average or slightly better pitch. His changeup could be his best offspeed weapon, with some scouts grading it as a future plus offering. Dibrell has been used a lot this season, eclipsing the 120-pitch mark often, especially for a pitcher of his age. He's a projection play with a chance to make it as a starter and the whip-quick arm to have an impact out of the bullpen if he ultimately needs to move there.
