PG Grade:
Zach Hammes is a RHP/IF with a 6-5 205 lb. frame from Iowa City, IA who attends City. Hammes has been better this spring, but he showed the ability to dominate some of the best hitters in the country. He breezed through 2 innings with command of a 90-92 mph fastball that just happened to be the liveliest one in the event. In fact, it is one of the liveliest fastballs in the country and we have seen it up to 94 mph this spring. With sink! He also flashed his good curve at 78 mph and an 80 mph change-up with sink and run. It is some of the hardest stuff to hit in the 2002 draft class. And at 6'7 with a very effortless arm action, he has set himself up to be one of the Nations top picks this June. Top pitcher at the event.
