2017 Mets Draft - 12th Round - RHP - Bryce Hutchinson

4 comments


PG Grade: 10 - Bryson Hutchinson is a 2017 1B/RHP with a 6-6 255 lb. frame from Port Orange, FL who attends Spruce Creek HS. Extra big and strong build. Primary first baseman at present but future likely on the mound. Has huge raw power at the plate when barreled up, nice shift into contact from a spread open stance and swings hard with intent to drive the ball, stays quiet and balanced, making frequent enough contact against quality stuff at his size will be the issue. Shows big arm strength on the mound as well, full loose arm action, 3/4's arm slot. Fastball topped out at 94 mph early with late running life and good command out of the windup. Short slider is still developing but could become a power pitch over time. Very interesting player because of the strength and size/coordination. Good student.

Eddie, we drafted him but we still need to sign him. Hopefully, we do.

Eddie Corona said...

oh i get it... I hope all those relievers they drafted in the top ten save us enough money to get this guy...
Have to admit this draft doesn't excite me...
