The junior righty kicked things off for the Trojans, who had all of their pitchers working just fastballs and changeups. Hurt always seems to flash the stuff, which made him a PG All American in high school in 2016, and this look was no different. With an easy, athletic delivery which he repeats well, Hurt featured a fastball that sat at 92-93 mph and touched plenty of 94s and 95s. The fastball has excellent arm-side run with sink, especially down in the zone and on the arm-side part of the plate. He mixed in the change often at 85-87, and while firm, the pitch shows excellent fade and tumble and he shows good feel for the pitch. In the past he’s shown both a curveball and a slider, working more with the slider last year which is also a weapon. The command of the fastball will dictate what Hurt is; when he’s at the glove with the fastball he looks like a prototype Friday Pac-12 starter and a day one guy for the draft, he just needs to hit the glove with the fastball more consistently.
