5/01/24

Illinois-Chicago commit. Ranked currently No. 23 in the 2024 class. Listed at 6-foot-5, 201-pounds with an athletic, long-levered frame. Working with a deliberate delivery, was strong at balance point and showed a long stride to home. Pitches come from a long, clean arm action out of a 3/4 slot. His fastball is clean out of the hand, with easy life through the zone, was up to 91 mph in the first two innings before settling in at 86-88 mph. Mainly working off the fastball was the curveball, a swing-and-miss pitch when down in the zone, 76-77 mph. The changeup played with a slight arm-side action to it, thrown mainly to the arm-side, sitting in the low 80s.

9/23/23

RHP Ethan Dorchies (Cary Grove, 2024; Illinois-Chicago) is hard to miss in his long-limbed 6-foot-5, 205-pound frame. Ranked No. 23 in Illinois’ 2024 class, Dorchies’ ease of operation was impressive in this look. Simple, repeatable, and clean - his delivery had minimal effort, and his long and loose arm show signs of a potential velocity tick as he gets stronger. His fastball sat 87-89 mph, topping out at 90 mph with life, and he creates extension as he moves down the mound which makes the pitch look firmer. He threw a mid-70s curveball which produced multiple swing-and-misses in and out of the zone. One of the more interesting arms in the class, Dorchies continues to impress.

8/08/23

Positional Profile: RHP/1B
Body: 6-5, 196-pounds.
Delivery: Controlled, methodical tempo, drop and drive lower half.
Arm Action: RH. Loose whippy arm action, 3/4 slot.
FB: T90, 86-88 mph. Life out of the hand, feel for the lower part of the zone, plays with run. T2469, 2288 average rpm.
CB: 74-77 mph. Plays with sweep, sharp break, feel for the zone. T2736, 2521 average rpm.
SPLT: 78-79 mph. Plays with sharp depth, kills spin.

6/22/23

As named Fox Valley Conference Pitcher of the Year, Dorchies’ performance this season landed him a spot on our third-team. Allowing just seven earned runs over 55.2 IP, Dorchies’ 0.782 ERA and 0.894 WHIP reflect dominance on the mound. The UIUC commit struck out 71 batters this spring. His best stuff came in one of the most important games of Cary Grove’s season. As a junior in the regional championship game, he pitched a complete game shutout that was one of his nine wins on the season. He showed a prowess for going the distance, as that was one of his two complete game shutouts and one of his three complete games.

2/15/23

Illinois-Chicago commit, RHP Ethan Dorchies (Cary-Grove), was one of the biggest winners on the day, setting a new personal record, running his fastball up to 91.5 mph. Dorchies stands out immediately thanks to his long, loose-limbed, upside 6-foot-5, 195-pound frame and young look. The ceiling and present stuff make Dorchies one of the more interesting arms in the class. The fastball plays with life and jumps out of the hand with big extension down the mound that makes his firm fastball seem to play up that much more. He also showed off a late-breaking horizontal cutter in the low-80s with 2238 average rpm and a splitter in the upper-70’s with all kinds of tumble and action to it at times. Dorchies should continue to climb up the board in Illinois as he corrals and polishes his overall arsenal.

2/11/23

Positional Profile: RHP/C
Body: 6-5, 196-pounds. Athletic frame with long levers, with room for added strength.
Delivery: Flexible, loose body, works on-line down the mound, creates extension.
Arm Action: RH. Long, loose arm action, 3/4 slot.
FB: T91, 88-91 mph. Lively out of the hand, jumps through the zone, plenty more velocity to come. T2286, 2247 average rpm.
CUT: 81-83 mph. Thrown with intent, late short, horizontal wrinkle.
SPLT: 78-79 mph. Late tumble and sink, advanced action at times.
