KANKAKEE, IL – Kankakee Community College announce Monday their former baseball player, Dylan Dodd, has made it to the Atlanta Braves Major League Roster. 

Dodd, a starting pitcher, rightfielder, and first baseman, will be added to the roster before the fifth game on April 4th. Dodd’s performance during the spring training games was impressive, allowing only four runs over 18 innings with 20 strikeouts against four walks.

Dodd started his college career as a two-way player at KCC, where he won the Division II Junior College World Series in 2017. Later, he focused on pitching with the Redhawks. The Ohio Valley Conference pitcher of the year has a money pitch in his low-80s changeup, and he’ll double up on the plus offering and use it in any count. His four-seam fastball has improved, and he has developed an average low-80s slider and a fringy-to-average upper-70s curveball.

Dodd’s age is less of a factor because he’s a left-handed pitcher equipped to move quickly as a pro ball. A tough competitor, he held Arkansas to two runs in six innings while striking out ten in front of a crowd of scouts in February.

KCC Cavaliers Baseball alum received congratulations from the KCC Foundation and Alumni Relations, as well as Bismarck-Henning Rossville-Alvin Cooperative High School, where he was a Blue Devil Alum.
