Orze has already beaten cancer twice. He was diagnosed with testicular cancer in the spring of 2018 and then skin cancer later that summer. He missed all of 2019 recovering, but he worked his way back into baseball shape and made his return to the mound with a relief appearance for New Orleans on Opening Night this spring. He moved into the rotation a week later, pitched five scoreless innings to win his first start, and overall went 3-0, 2.75 before the season shut down. Orze works with an above-average, 92-95 mph fastball, an average slider and an above-average splitter. A starter at New Orleans, he’s most likely a reliever in pro ball because his stuff tails off pretty quickly. He is a redshirt senior who is old for the class, turning 23 in August, but he's a potentially interesting senior sign for both his stuff and his perserverence.
