Dombkowski turns 23 early next month, but he still had a year of college eligibility left and planned to go to Texas A&M in 2022, making the announcement just five days ago. He pitched at Hartford for four seasons and he has five year of summer college ball so he has a lot of experience over that time. This past season, he made ten starts and had a 3.13 ERA in 60.1 innings, with 72 strikeouts and a 1.14 WHIP. In summer ball he had a 2.20 ERA in three starts. He threw a no-hitter on May 8th. He’s the first NDFA signing so far this season. NDFA signings have a maximum $20,000 bonus allowed per signing.
