December, 2015 - Transferred from Kentucky to State College of Florida at the semester break of his freshman year.
9.25.14 - In an early September start for the Reds Scout Team at NIU in front of several professional scouts, Orbik sat 86-88 mph throughout his three innings of work. Two weeks later at Joliet Junior College his fastball was up to 89 mph. His fastball plays up due to his loose, easy arm action, which produces considerable arm side run with late life. He should have more in the tank thanks to his skinny 6-foot-2, 180-pound projectable frame, coupled with the arm action. He flashed two breaking balls, one a 78-79 mph cutter/slider hybrid that breaks late, flashing occasional slider depth. He struck out six in his three innings of work, with a majority coming on his 74-77 mph late breaking curveball with 11/5 shape, and hard, late breaking action. The curveball showed more power than it did in April, when it fluctuated between 66-73 mph. He shows an advanced feel for a four-pitch repertoire and invoked comparisons from scouts to current Washington Nationals rotation stalwart Tanner Roark, a former Illinois prep righty.
4/1/14 - Kentucky commit, ranked No. 14 in the state. Wiry frame, 6-foot-1, 160 pounds. Body comp to Bronson Arroyo. Orbik produces easy velocity with long flexible limbs. Smooth effortless, delivery. Starts hands at chest, drops to waist, and back up again in windup, to produce repeatable rhythm. Stays online towards home and shows the ability to manipulate the baseball in several ways with good extension out front.  Frankly, an extremely advanced professional approach for a junior pitcher. Fastball sat 84-86 all outing, slider/cutter ranged from 77-81.  showed more depth at lower end of velocity, and more cutter-action at higher end. Would also add and subtract from a 66-73 mph curveball with good shape to steal a strike early in the count. Waited to flash premium changeup until the fourth. Showed good finish down in the zone. Struck out a right handed hitter with an 80 mph change down and in. While Orbik has an advanced ability to throw and manipulate four different pitches, he could have pitched off his fastball more often.  When he tired he tended to pull it down and out of the zone.
4/29/13 - High ceiling, loose long right handed pitcher. Body shows projection, slender frame, room to fill out, 6-foot, 170-pounds. Arm action is clean and easy, ¾ arm slot, loose arm action, highly athletic arm, gets good extension at release point. Delivery is smooth and fluid, shows excellent direction, head stays on line and exhibits excellent balance throughout. Fastball shows arm side run with late life through the zone, sat 84-86 mph, also showed the ability to add and subtract from his fastball in situational counts, showed command of his fastball. Curveball has 11/5 action, some slurve feel, two plane action flashes occasional depth and sweep, showed the tendency to tip breaking ball in later innings as he tired. Change up was 78-79, occasionally used, showed deceptive arm action. High strikeout guy, has swing and miss stuff.  Orbik has a mound presence beyond his years. The sophomore does not get rattled easily and shows excellent composure, a highly mature approach to pitching. Orbik is the No. 7 prospect in Illinois’ 2015 class, he will also be pitching in the  PBR Midwest Future Games at Indiana University in August.

1/20/13 - Top-level prospect in Illinois’ 2015 class; has potential to be high-level national prospect. Projectable 6-foot-2, 170-pound right-hander with long, lean frame. Arm works extremely fast with excellent hand acceleration and extension. Fastball topped at 87 mph, sitting 86, with late arm-side life. Works from high-3/4 slot with long, loose arm action. Throws three pitches with conviction. Curveball showed potential to be plus pitch at the next level, registering 71-72 mph with sharp, late two-plane break. Showed ability to throw curveball for strikes. Changeup ranged between 74-76 mph with little action.  As he continues to fill into his frame, Orbik should continue to add velocity in the coming years.
1/22/12 The 6-foot, 150-pound Orbik looks to be one of the premier right-handed prospects in the Class of 2015. Lanky and athletically built, Orbik has an extremely projectable frame, one that should continue to develop in the coming years. Currently, Orbik’s arm works with little effort; he is extremely loose, coming from an over-the-top angle and creating downward tilt. His fastball topped at 84 mph, sitting in the 82-83 range. His lively fastball demonstrated late run.  He keeps the ball down in the zone and has feel for three pitches.  He also threw a slider in the 74-75 mph range that had tight spin, and a 66-73 mph changeup.  Defensively, Orbik showed a strong arm across the diamond from third base with carry and accuracy (80 mph).
Orbik is a lanky 6-foot, 150-pound two-way talent who features extremely long legs and arms. Orbik possesses considerable upside, especially on the mound, where he showed the promise of a high-level prospect. The right-hander has a quick, easy arm, and showed advanced rhythm and presence on the mound. Coming from an over-the-top arm slot, Orbik's fastball sat at 79-80 mph with hard, late life. Orbik works downhill well, and showed the ability to throw three pitches for strikes. His curveball, in the 69 mph range, has the potential to be a plus pitch, as it had sharp two-plane break. He also commanded a 72-73 mph changeup down in the zone. As Orbik fills out physically, he should continue to add velocity. He also showed solidly as a position player, as he demonstrated some arm strength at third base (78 mph). Offensively, he showcased a mechanically sound swing, in addition to quick hands and barrel whip through the zone.
