Year   Team       IP   K/9   BB/9   K/BB   HR/9   H/9   RA                  
2006   Virginia       34.1   8.7   4.0   2.2   1.6   9.2   6.07                  
2007   Tulane       99.2   9.4   2.7   3.5   0.3   7.7   3.63          

Honors:

  • 2008 Brooks Wallace Pre-season Watch List
  • 2007 All Conference USA First-team

Strengths:
Hunt has the stuff of a promising draft prospect and began to put together the resume after transferring from Virginia. He throws a low 90s fastball with good run and one of the best curveballs in the Cape Cod League.

Weaknesses:
He’ll need another solid season at Tulane to solidify a spot in the first-round. If he develops a major-league quality changeup, he could be a #2 starter. If not, Hunt profiles as a power reliever.

The Future:
Late first-round/supplemental round.
