SCOUTING REPORT
Hultzen can touch 95 MPH with his fastball, and usually sits 91-93 MPH.  He also throws a sinker, which gets a lot of strikeouts, and a good change-up, which is important for a left hander to have.  His biggest asset is his command, as shown with his low walk rate this season.  He has emerged as a candidate for the number one overall pick late in the season, due to struggles from Anthony Rendon and Gerrit Cole.  However, Hultzen isn’t a strong candidate, sitting more in the number three spot.
