Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 55 | Slider: 55 | Curveball: 45 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 50 | Overall: 40

Dugger started for two years at Cisco (Texas) JC before relieving in his lone season at Texas Tech in 2016, after which the Mariners signed him for $70,000 in the 18th round. He began his pro career in the bullpen before returning to the rotation in mid-2017, then came to the Marlins along with right-hander Nick Neidert and infielder Chris Torres that December in exchange for Dee Gordon and international bonus pool money. He reached Double-A and finished second to Neidert among Miami farmhands in wins (10) and strikeouts (141 in 150 2/3 innings) after changing organizations.

Dugger has solid command of his two- and four-seam fastballs, with the former sitting in the low 90s with sink and the latter touching 96 mph. His slider gives him a solid second offering, while he's making progress with a changeup to combat left-handers. He'll also mix in a show-me curveball to give batters a different look.

The athletic Dugger repeats his delivery well and throws strikes. The next step will be to refine his command to keep more advanced hitters off his effective but less than overwhelming stuff. He's a tough competitor who could wind up as a backend starter or bridge reliever for the Marlins.
