24 725 Cleveland Indians Mike Hamann RHP Ohio
Righthander Michael Hamann is the best high school prospect in Ohio this year, but he probably won't be the first one drafted because he's strongly committed to Toledo. One scout compared him to current Rockets ace Justin Collop because Hamann has a similar build (6-foot-2, 165 pounds) and a variety of solid pitches. He works with an 87-89 mph fastball that touches 91, and a promising curveball and changeup. He's more polished than most high school pitchers and is a good athlete who also lettered in basketball and cross country.
