If he's available at #4, Danny Hultzen is a very intriguing option for the Orioles come draft day. He's a left handed pitcher from Virginia with a good head on his shoulders (Academic All-America), which gives him a solid presence on the mound. You can see that in his ability to “pitch” which is one of his great assets. He is one of the better college arms this season and has greatly improved his stock from the times I have seen him throw since high school. An aggressive pitched, Hultzen attacks the strike zone on both right handed and left handed batters.

I have seen him in person and on numerous occasions on tape. He is a very solid pitcher and I would not turn away the chance to select him or say to the organization that you made a mistake. I do not know how much more he can improve, but I think he is hungry from my observations. It is why I think he will be on the higher end of my thoughts rather than the lower end.

Any chance the velo increases even a bit more?

I would not have thought the jump from last season to this season, so it is not out of the question. I would take the bet that he has reached his ceiling, but it is still an impressive one.
