Hunter Cervenka is a 2008 LHP/OF/1B with a 6'2'', 195 lb. frame from Baytown, TX who attends Ross Sterling HS. He has a lean and strong build and is pretty physically mature. Cervenka is a quick twitch athlete with impressive tools both on the mound and as a power hitting outfielder. His arm strength has been obvious for some time; he's been throwing in the low 90's since his sophomore year. He topped out at 92 mph in Cincinnati but had the same type of struggles with command and consistency that have frequently plagued him. Cervanka's curveball shows tight spin on occasion but his release point varies on the pitch and he tends to wrap it in back. When Cervenka learns to tone down his max effort delivery and make some adjustments with the idea of developing consistent mechanics, he'll take the next step as a pitcher. Cervenka's approach to hitting is pretty similar to his pitching approach. He has plus bat speed and when everything comes together he shows very good power and can turn around high velocity stuff. He gets long to the ball often though and his hitting mechanics vary from at bat to at bat. Cervenka threw 93 mph from the outfield and ran 6.87, so those tools play high. Cervenka has a verbal commitment to Texas.
