Orozco is likely to be the first high school pitcher from the Four Corners region to come off the board. Listed at 6-foot, 195 pounds, the Arizona commit is well built and doesn't offer much physical projection despite the fact he won't turn 18 until August. But he is confident on the mound and employs a good three-pitch arsenal. His fastball ranges from 91-94 mph with a little sink and he also throws a sharp-breaking curveball and solid changeup. His loose arm works well and the high-three-quarters delivery is straight to the plate and repeatable. Orozco demonstrates a good feel for the craft. He's effective at changing speeds on his secondary pitches and knows how to set up hitters.
