Beau Hale, rhp
Texas

Hale went a combined 2-5, 6.39 in his first two years at Texas, but success last summer led to a breakout season, as he went 11-4, 2.98 with 105 strikeouts in 121 innings. Scouts knew the 6-foot-1, 180-pound Hale had legitimate first-round stuff, and he proved it by spinning a no-hitter in his second outing of the year. He built from there. He took a consistent 92-95 mph fastball to the mound every time out and threw it for strikes. Few college pitchers threw as hard this spring. His slider is inconsistent but he has a good feel for it; he has an improving curve.
