Dean is a pure hitter and tremendous defensive 1st baseman who transferred from Oklahoma State. Considering he batted .280 with 4 HR's and 23 RBI's in the Cape Cod League, we can expect a monster season from him. He bats from the left side of the plate and can hit for average and power. He will bat 3rd for us in the lineup.
