Dalton can play both pitcher and catcher, so he adds versatility to a club’s roster.
As a catcher, his pop time ranges between 1.95 and 2.1 seconds, with the velocity on his throws ranging from the high 70s (mph) to the low 80s.
As a pitcher, Dalton features a two-seam fastball, cutter and slider. The velocity on his fast ball ranges from the low to mid-80s (mph), and that of his slider is from the low to mid-80s.
He is a very supportive teammate, always looking to help in any way possible. He is very much a team player. He continues to work out and train regularly, with extra work in the batting cages and long toss to build up his arm strength.
Dalton would also be interested in assisting a club’s coaching staff.
