Uncommitted Prospect Spotlight: 2019 Dylan Cuenca

Jordon Banfield
Arizona Scouting Director

Throughout the year PBR will put the spotlight on a number of uncommitted prospects who show the necessary tools to play at the next level. 2019 Dylan Cuenca from Desert Vista HS performed well at the Preseason All-State Games and is a multi-year varsity starter at DV. Cuenca has a DI body and has shown intriguing raw power. With some continued refinement of his swing mechanics, Cuenca could become a very interesting prospect for colleges this summer. We are excited to see more from him this summer at the 2019 Top Prospect Games. As always, contact [email protected] or direct message @PBRArizona on Twitter with any questions and/or commitment information.

Scouting Report

1/28/18 - 6-foot-1, 170-pound frame. Looks heavier and more physical than listed size; shows lots of present strength. Has some rigidity to his game, but turned in impressive 6.89 60-yard dash and mashed a ball off the wall in live game action. Has a busy hand load, taking his hands forward significantly before jerking them back into a deep loaded position. Cuenca the transfers all of his weight out over his front side, while hitting from a wide base. May have one of those swings that looks cleaner against live pitching than in BP as it appears there’s definite bat-to-ball ability to go along with the raw power; 88 mph exit velocity. Infield actions profile best to 3B as again there’s some rigidity but he made all the plays and shows workable hands and an accurate arm; 81 mph infield velo.
