9/13/20

2021 lefty who has committed to Arizona. Challenged hitters with mostly a two-pitch mix, tunnelling a swing/miss 71-72 mph curveball with an 85-88 mph fastball. Good depth on the breaking pitch with spin rates 2100-2250 rpm while the fastball had average armside action. As he’s routinely done this summer, Orloff easily navigated the opposing lineup, allowing just one hit in 2.2 IP with four strikeouts.
Stats: 2.2, 4K, 1BB, 1H

Verbally committed to Arizona.

Another big “winner” from the ProCase, Orloff entered uncommitted, but attracted plenty of interest soon afterwards. A fair athlete with some arm strength, the 6-foot-3, 205 pound loose-armed lefty struck out the side during his 13-pitch appearance with a sneaky 88-89 mph fastball and effective 69-70 mph curveball. From a high three-quarter slot he spun his fastball up to 2,125 rpm, averaging 2,015. His breaker spun to the plate in a similar range, but was thrown from nearly 5” lower than his fastball release point. Orloff recently committed to Arizona.
