Drafted in the 15th round (461st overall) by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2014
A redshirt junior drafted last year in the 21st round by the Reds, Dorsch is a hulking presence on the mound. The broad-shouldered, 6-foot-8, 270-pounder has worked exclusively out of the bullpen and has flashed 90-93 mph and touched 95 mph at his best. His fastball velocity has been inconsistent from game to game, sitting 88-91 mph, touching 93 at his worst, which is a concern for a 22-year-old with little projection. He also leans on a slider that can get up to 87 mph, and it shows average potential but is inconsistent. Dorsch's control has improved dramatically this season, and scouts liked the way that he pitched off his fastball more this spring.
