Dillon Tate Career
The Texas Rangers picked Tate, one of the top prospects in the 2015 MLB draft, with the fourth overall pick. On June 12, he signed a four-year, $4.2 million contract with the Rangers.
Tate made his major league debut in 2016 with the Class A South Atlantic League’s Hickory Crawdads after playing his first season in the Class A Short Season Northwest League with the Spokane Indians.
Due to a strained hamstring, he had to spend time on the disabled list. A 5.12 earned run average, 55 strikeouts, and 27 walks were Tate’s stats in 65 innings for Hickory.
For Carlos Beltrán, the Rangers traded Tate, Erik Swanson, and Nick Green on August 1, 2016, to the Yankees.
The Yankees sent Tate to the Charleston RiverDogs of the South Atlantic League to work with pitching coach Justin Pope to rectify mechanical deficiencies that could contribute to an increase in velocity.
Trenton Thunder of the Eastern League promoted him in August, where he concluded the season with a record of 1–2 and an earned run average of 3.24.
The New York Yankees dealt Zack Britton to the Baltimore Orioles for Tate, Cody Carroll, and Josh Rogers on July 24th, 2018.
After the season, the Orioles included him on their 40-man roster. There were two teams that Tate played for during the 2018 season:
Trenton Thunder and Bowie Baysox of the Eastern League. Tate returned to Bowie for the start of the new year.
The Baltimore Orioles promoted Tate to the majors on July 26, 2019.
