Hunter Barnhart
Name: Hunter Edward Barnhart
Born: Feb 14, 2002 in Paso Robles, CA
High School: St. Joseph HS, Santa Maria, Calif.
Ht.: 6'3" / Wt.: 195 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 3rd round (96th overall) by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2020 (signed for $585,000)
Barnhart spent three years at Paso Robles (Calif.) High before transferring to St. Joseph (Santa Maria, Calif.) for his senior year. He was a standout quarterback at both schools, earning league MVP and All-Central Coast player of the year honors last fall and receiving recruiting attention from prominent mid-major programs like Boise State. Barnhart's future is in baseball, however. His fastball jumped from 88-91 mph to 90-94 mph this spring and he has one of the best curveballs in the class, a high-spin power curve that draws consensus plus grades. He also mixes in a developing changeup. Barnhart developed advanced command and feel before his velocity spiked and is plus strike-thrower with his fastball and curveball. He has an aggressive, football mentality on the mound. Barnhart doesn’t have a ton of physical projection left, but his velocity keeps ticking up and he might throw harder with his focus solely on baseball. He is committed to Arizona State.
