New England Top Ten Breakdown: Top Viewed Prospect Profiles - #7 Mike Doherty

Mike Doherty#7 Mike Doherty, RHP, Middlesex, 2018 (Northwestern commit)
Scouting Report: 6-foot-4, 180-pound right-hander who made a significant jump on the scene at the Future Games. Shows a tremendous amount of high level potential on the mound. The delivery is on line and the arm works well out of a ¾ slot. Does have a pull of the front side taking away from the tightening of his spin pitch and extension, but that can be cleaned up with coaching. Fastball has plus arm side run and sat 85-86, touching 88 mph. The spin pitch is a wide slurve, sitting at 76-77 mph. The changeup has a chance to be an out pitch as well, sitting at 75-76 mph. In the game, showed good life to his pitches, command needs to improve but all in all, hes a serious guy for me.

Overview: In 2016, the 6-foot-4 right-handed pitcher comes in at the 12th spot in the 2018 class. During 2016, Doherty took part in the 2016 Future Games for Team Massachusetts and did a great job. Look for the righty to continue to develop in high school over the next two seasons before attending Northwestern.
