Drafted in the 16th round (473rd overall) by the Philadelphia Phillies in 2017 (signed for $125,000).
View Draft ReportDohy entered the year as one of the nation's top Div. II prospects as an arm strength lefty who could sit 92 mph and had room to grow. Horrid control ruined his season, however, as he posted a 5.99 ERA with 6.8 walks per nine and threw 18 wild pitches. Dohy has swing-and-miss stuff, as evidenced by his 89 strikeouts in 79.2 innings, but his inability to command any of this offerings consistently largely cancels out his positives. A team could take a flyer on Dohy and see if they can iron him out.
Organization Prospect Rankings
Track Record: Dohy entered 2017 as one of the top Division II prospects in the country, but he struggled badly with his control, dropping him to the Phillies in the 16th round. After walking a batter per inning in his pro debut, Dohy didn't look like a fast-track pitcher, but he climbed three levels in 2018, finishing the year in Double-A Reading's bullpen.
Scouting Report: After getting his legs more into his delivery, Dohy has grown his fastball from the low-90s to sitting more low-to-mid 90s with a peak of 97 mph in short bursts as a reliever. He gets whiffs on his fastball up in the zone and on both of his secondary pitches, leading him to strike out an incredible 41 percent of batters faced last year. One is a plus slider that's devastating against lefties, breaking sharp and late with two-plane depth. His changeup can also induce whiffs, flashing above-average. Dohy is a good athlete who threw more strikes in 2018, though he struggled again with his control once he reached Double-A.
The Future: Dohy has a starter's repertoire, but he has found a role that clicks for him in relief. He's a potential multi-inning reliever who could pitch in high-leverage situations, with a chance to reach the big leagues by the end of the 2019 season.
