Zach Hammes, rhp

School: Iowa City HS Class: Sr.
Hometown: Iowa City, Iowa.
B-T: R-R Ht.: 6-7 Wt.: 230 Birthdate: 5/15/84
College Commitment: Iowa.
Scouting Report: While catcher Jeff Clements--Iowa's top prospect--took a step back at the Perfect Game showcase, Hammes was the best pitcher at the event. He showed a lively 90-92 fastball that he delivered again and again with little effort. At 6-foot-7 and 230 pounds, he projects to throw in the mid-90s. His curveball and changeup need work but show promise. He hasn't pitched for his high school team but has stood out in Perfect Game wood-bat leagues and spring showcases. He reminds scouts of Jeff Juden and that's meant as a compliment—Juden was the 12th pick in the 1989 draft before embarking on a mediocre big league career.
