BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 Scouts first discovered Hill when he was pitching for the Army team at West Point, and he's gone from a nice story to somebody who might just have a big-league future. His fastball has just average velocity, but it plays up due to his ability to add cut and/or sink to the ball while placing it in the strike zone with the accuracy of a laser-guided weapon. He's hardly lights-out as prospects go, and needs to find a secondary pitch to depend on, but if he keeps throwing strikes he could get there as a middle reliever.
