Prospect: Ray Hutchinson ('14)
Hutchinson's arm strength is tremendous as he topped out at 94 mph at our arm strength station. Fastball showed a range of 88-90 mph on a slight downhill plane with heavy action. Breaking ball shows as a quality pitch that will get outs at the next level. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date at 7.19. At SS, he utilizes his quick / athletic feet well in surrounding balls and playing through with his body. Hands are soft / clean / sure as he makes all the plays. At the plate, hitting grades are now outstanding as he displays quick hands that generate bat speed through the ball. He will hit and hit with power at the next level. Ray has the makings to be a special type player, possibly a two-way guy and should be a 2013 draft guy as he continues to improve.
