The Floor: Dylan Moore

A fantastic athlete, Farmelo has shown an ability to play two of the most important positions on the field, Center and Short. He's spent his recent time in the outfield, showing an aptitude and ability to man center already. He can run and field, which plays into the floor.

I'm sticking with a Mariners theme through all of these picks when I can, as it's just more fun. Especially if there is one that I think is a fair comparison. Dylan Moore has been fun to root for, and he has had some great moments, but he is also a UTIL player that struggles to produce in a consistent manner.

He can play middle infield, he can man the outfield positions. The speed looks to play more than the power, but there is some power potential there based on his bat speed and quick approach at the plate. Maybe some of the tools end up lagging behind, and he ends up a high variance guy who mans the bench, giving an ability to slot into 4/5 positions on the field when need be.
