7/12/21 : Phillies 4th Round Draft Pick
The Phillies selected Micah Ottenbreit, an 18 year old RHP from Trenton ( Michigan ) High School in the 4th round of the draft today.
Here’s his Baseball America scouting profile.
Ht: 6-4 | Wt: 175 | B-T: R-R
Commit/Drafted: Michigan State
Age At Draft: 18.2
Ottenbreit has been one of the most heavily scouted pitchers in the state of Michigan this spring and is an exciting projection arm who’s young for the class. Listed at 6-foot-4, 175 pounds, Ottenbreit only turned 18 in May and has shown a solid three-pitch mix. He typically pitches in the 89-92 mph range and has touched 93-94 in the past and has two solid secondaries in a mid-70s spike curveball and a changeup in the low 80s that he’s shown good feel for as well. Scouts might want to see more present stuff, but it’s hard to see Ottenbreit not throwing harder in the future as he adds weight to his frame. The curveball has good traits now with plenty of depth and could be a real weapon when he’s able to add more power to the offering. He is committed to Michigan State and could blow up if he makes it to campus and continues along the development path that many evaluators are expecting.
