Doyle is a pedigree righthander who has been successful since he arrived on campus in 2005. His best pitch is a plus curve that he pairs with a high 80s fastball and decent changeup and slider. He has good command and repeats his mechanics well.
Doyle has regressed since his freshman year. His fastball velocity is only fringe average.
We ranked him #250 last year, which would put him in the eighth round. He has pitched better in 2008, so he deserves to be taken in the fifth or sixth rounds.
