Ottenbreit was a Michigan State commit.  He was selected by the Phillies in the fourth round of the 2021 Amateur Draft, the 114th overall pick.

One scouting report stated:  Ottenbreit is a good athlete who works 89-92, touching 93, with a bit of physical projection. He has huge spin on an above-average slider with an advanced feel for locating it, and showed some changeup feel. The past few years haven’t been great for Spartans’ baseball, but Ottenbreit has the makings of a future Big Ten Friday starter.

  1. As a Phillies Pharmhand, he pitched 6 innings in 5 games. He was 1-0, giving up 6 hits and 3 ERs with 4 Ks and 3 BBs. He gave up all 3 runs and 4 of the hits in 1 game. Short season stats are so hard to identify a trend but he wasn’t selected in the 4th round for nothing.
