  • 2008 Brooks Wallace Watch List

Hunter has all of the stuff of a front-line starting pitcher or power closer and none of the command. He consistently pitches in the mid-90s and he holds his 95 mph velocity into the sixth and seventh innings. His slider and changeup can also be effective pitches. He has experience as a starting pitcher and a closer for the Waves.

Hunter struggled with command in 2007 (as you can see in the video below), walking more than five batters per nine innings. He had better command when he was a closer as a freshman but he has more value to a pro team as a starting pitcher.
