Dombroski has posted outstanding numbers at Monmouth, including this season with a sparkling 120-14 strikeout-to-walk mark in 95 innings to go with a 3.13 ERA. Performing last summer in the Cape Cod League, where he had an ERA of 0.85 with 45 strikeouts and two walks in 31.2 innings, gave scouts more confidence in his ability to handle himself against better competition. Dombroski is a prolific strike-thrower with advanced pitchability, mixing his stuff and hitting his spots to keep hitters off-balance. He has a delivery that’s simple, smooth and under control with efficient arm action. Dombroski repeats his mechanics well and throws strikes with four pitches. He’s not overpowering, pitching at 87-91 mph and touching 93 mph, but his control has a chance to be a 70 on the 20-80 scale. Dombroski threw his fastball 40% of the time this year, using his slider nearly as often. The slider is his best pitch, grading out plus with sharp bite, late tilt and two-plane depth, an effective weapon against both lefties and righties that should continue to miss bats against more advanced hitters. Dombroski also throws an average curveball and a fringe-average changeup that comes in firmly off his fastball. Some scouts were hoping to see more of a velocity uptick this year from Dombroski, but others remain high on him for his starter traits and outstanding control.
