Drafted in the 3rd round (95th overall) by the Boston Red Sox in 2004 (signed for $400,000)
Dobies boosted his draft stock with a solid summer in the Valley League. The Pennsylvania native went 4-1, 2.25 with 92 strikeouts in 56 innings as he developed a cutter that became an effective pitch. He also experimented with different grips for his changeup, and toward the end of the summer it had improved enough that he was using it in key situations. He became the Friday starter for a resurgent Virginia program this season and had a 6-2, 3.24 record with 97 strikeouts and 28 walks in 94 innings. He is a strong competitor on the mound with good arm action from a mid-three-quarters slot and solid delivery. He works off his change, which makes his 85-88 mph fastball look a lot faster, and he works in his 78-79 mph cutter as an occasional out pitch.
