Mets Pick #21 - RHP - Zach Hammer - Alexander Central HS (NC)



           R/R, 7/4/00 - Alexander Central HS - 6'2", 165 lbs

The Mets took right-handed pitcher Zachary Hammer in the 21st round. Hammer, a native of Stony Point, North Carolina, is a senior at Alexander Central High School. He is still seventeen years old and young for his class. Hammer is described as “a long, lean body type with a clean arm and plenty of room for growth,” said Brandon Hall of Prep Baseball Report. Hammer is committed to NC State University, said Hall.

           Another NC prep RHP off the board in Zachary Hammer. Catawba Valley CC recruit. 6-3, 170 has good stuff, but can be wild. CB is a power pitch and FB peaked at 92 this spring.
