Hermsen is one of the most improved high school pitchers in the country, finally showing the stuff that scouts imagined out of his 6-foot-6 frame. Hermsen throws a low 90s sinker that he pairs with a solid change and slider. He’s got clean mechanics so another bump in velocity is conceivable. Hermsen is the highest ranked recruit for two-time defending champions Oregon State and the top high school prospect from Iowa.

He doesn’t have as much present stuff as other elite prep pitchers.  He hasn’t been challenged by quality high school competition.  He’s a strong student, which will make him tough to sign.

The Future:
Supplemental round.
