Scouting Report: Hagerty was nothing more than a projection during his first two years at Ball State. He pitched sparingly and emerged last summer in the Central Illinois Collegiate League. He's added 10 mph to his fastball and 30 pounds to his imposing 6-foot-8, 230-pound frame since he was recruited out of high school. His fastball registered up to 93-94 mph last summer and he has consistently worked in the 88-92 range with good running movement this spring. Because Hagerty threw just 41 innings as a freshman and sophomore, he tired as this season wore on, causing him to get on the side of his breaking ball. When he's on, it's a hard, sharp breaker, but it lost some of its bite down the stretch. Still, there's the projection scouts love--his father is 6-foot-9--and his arm comes with low mileage. Hagerty ranked second to teammate Bryan Bullington in ERA in the MAC regular season while striking out 81 in 71 innings.
