Topping Baseball America's list of late-round sleepers in the June draft...

1. Jasiah Dixon, OF, Pirates (23rd round)

Dixon was seen frequently by Southern California area scouts throughout his amateur career because he was a four-year starter for SoCal powerhouse Orange (Calif.) Lutheran High.

He ranked as the No. 177 prospect on the BA 500 draft ranking and was seen as high-upside righthanded hitter who figured to be drafted inside the top 10 rounds. Instead, Dixon fell to the Pirates in the 23rd round and turned in an impressive pro debut in the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League. He hit .329/.417/.425 with eight stolen bases, 10 walks and 11 strikeouts in 22 games.

Dixon is a plus-plus runner and the fastest player in the Pirates’ 2019 draft class, with plus arm strength and impressive athleticism. He showed bat-to-ball skills and raw power as an amateur, but scouts wondered about his natural timing and future hitting ability. His GCL performance might have changed a few minds.
