5-11, 190 - R/R
BA #346 - One of the more intriguing arms in the Northeast this year, Hackimer is a converted shortstop who throws from a sidearm slot with significantly more velocity than most sidearmers. Hackimer has pitched at 88-90 most of this spring, and can hit 91 with his heater. With his low arm slot Hackimer is able to get heavy sinking action on his fastball. His slider is also a weapon, and he has the ability to generate late break on the pitch and pound lefthanded hitters with it. Hackimer keeps both of his pitches down in the zone, though he can get wild and lose the zone at times. Some scouts view Hackimer as a potential quick-moving reliever, who could pitch in the Major Leagues with very little refinement.
