    Two-way player Tom Hickman didn't receive the same exposure this spring as some of his East Cobb travel league teammates, but he had an impressive season nonetheless. He had some shoulder stiffness, perhaps because he didn't have much time to prepare for baseball after playing basketball this winter. His fastball sat between 86-90 mph, and he flashes a plus changeup that he can run away from righthanders and cut on lefthanders. His package is projectable, both as a hitter and a pitcher. Hickman has a smooth stroke and allows balls to travel deep before centering them. He lacks the speed and range to handle center field, but has arm strength and raw power that profile well in right.
