Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 45 | Run: 50 | Arm: 45 | Field: 50 | Overall: 40

Dean opened each of the previous three seasons in Double-A before finally conquering the level in 2018, when he won the Marlins' Minor League Player of the Year Award and made his big league debut in August. A fourth-round pick as a Texas high-schooler in 2012, he homered in two of his first five starts in the Majors. Miami gave him steady playing time in the final weeks, a possible prelude to a regular role this year.

A career .267/.329/.397 hitter entering last year, Dean finished fourth in the Minors in batting (.345) and 11th in on-base percentage (.410). He has a short right-handed swing, a solid approach and good feel for the barrel. His swing path is geared more toward hitting doubles than home runs, and getting the most out of his raw power will be critical as to whether he sticks as a big leaguer.

Dean's bat is his only potential above-average tool, so he may be more of a fourth outfielder. He has average speed with fringy range and arm strength, limiting him to playing left field. He has worked hard to improve his defense.
