Ray Hanson is a 2008 RHP with a 6'8'', 195 lb. frame from Long Beach, CA who attends Wilson HS. He has an extra tall and lanky build with good upper half looseness and some strength in his core and lower half. Hanson has a low effort delivery with good direction to the plate and a long, extended arm stroke. His arm works smoothly. Hanson's fastball was 88-90 mph and was pretty straight with good downward angle. He did a good job working the outside half of the plate to right handed hitters with his fastball. His best off speed pitch was an upper 70's split change that had good arm speed and feel. He threw a upper 70's slider that is still developing consistency and quality. Scouts will anxiously project Hanson and his velocity due to his size and low effort mechanics. He has made a verbal commitment to Arizona State.
