Dorsey Ek is a 2007 RHP/1B with a 6'7'', 200 lb. frame from San Diego CA, who attends Francis Parker HS. Selected as a Top Prospect at this event (1st base). Ek is a primary pitcher but had some arm soreness that limited him to just a couple of pitches. He has a wonderfully long and broad body type that drips projection and a long arm action. The ball comes out of his hand well, registering in the mid-80s with his fastball at this time. His best pitch is his slider, though he did not get to that pitch in this outing, we have seen it in previous events. Keep a close eye on him for the draft, he could jump up in the spring time as a name to know. It was at the plate where Ek stood out in this event. He has plus bat speed and regularly made hard and loud barrel contact. He has leverage in his stroke and with solid present day power, he has a chance to develop above average future power. His swing plane is pretty flat and he worked the middle and opposite fields well, showing a nice approach for a young power prospect. Around the bag he provides a large target and is still developing feel for the position. He is a top end student and signed with Saint Mary's (CA) College. Because he is a teammate of top prospect Nick Noonan, Ek will have numerous opportunities to impress the pro scouts this spring.

Dorsey Ek is a 2007 RHP/1B from Francis Parker HS, residing in San Diego, CA, with a 6'7" 190 lb. frame. Ek was named to the top prospect team at the California Underclass Showcase. He has a long and lanky body with long levers, yet he also has some strength. It is a very good pitching body, if he can add enough lower half musculature to maximize his stuff, while also developing a repeatable and rhythmic delivery. Ek pitches from a high 3/4 slot with a pretty quick arm from the top of his arm arc. He has a two part backside arm action, which impedes his raw arm speed. At times his extension is a strong positive, particularly with his slider. Ek has a 82-84 mph FB with some life and good rotation, an audible sizzle indicating that the FB spins off his fingers well. That rotation is clearly evident with his 73-76 mph SL, which is an above average pitch and potential plus pitch at the college level. Ek throws the SL aggressively with feel and gets late action. Furthermore, he can change the shape of his SL, which at times he threw with power down tilt. Ek's third pitch was a 76-78 mph CH, which was more like a BP fastball. He needs to develop more fastball feel, and the velocity should come with strength gains in coming years, though raw arm speed is not a strength of his. Ek has some effort in his arm stroke and at times his arm slot looked uncomfortable. A lower slot looked like it would be more natural and comfortable. On offense Ek has a knack for hitting. He has good bat speed and good balance. He was interesting to watch and then to imagine him developing as a hitter. Ek showed some power potential and the ability to hit for average. His long arms worked best when he was working on hitting the other way. Ek is a possible two-way prospect, but his future looked to be very bright on mound, depending on the development of the fastball. He is an excellent student and should be on the strong follow lists of major D1's.

Dorsey Ek is a 2007 RHP from Francis Parker HS in San Diego, California, with a 6'5", 180 lb. frame. Ek has a very projectable body with some present strength. Ek throws from a high 3/4 arm slot with a short arm circle on the back side. His fastball topped out at 85 mph and he has the potential to be a 90+ pitcher in the future. There is some effort in his delivery, but he gets a good downward plane on his throws to the plate and shows solid control. The secondary pitches are solid and Ek gets good sink on his changeup. He has a very high ceiling on the mound and needs to be followed closely. Ek also took BP and hit in the games where he showed solid bat speed with a line drive swing path. He hits from an open stance and has some strength in his swing. Ek stayed inside the ball well and has the ability to hit the ball hard the other way. He is also an outstanding student and a must follow.
