Summary:A draft-eligible sophomore, Hunter is a big right-hander with a chance to have a good three-pitch mix. Right now, his command is below average, but like his stuff, there's projection for improvement. With a bulldog approach on the mound and an above-average fastball, some might see him as a bullpen guy down the road, but he also could evolve into a back end of the rotation guy.
