    Hawaiians play in obscurity much of the year and tend to be drafted a round lower than their talent warrants. League may be the exception. He got exposure last summer as a dominant member of the Team USA junior squad and, if anything, has gotten stronger this year. He was used erratically as both a starter and reliever, making it difficult for scouts to schedule trips in to see him. League throws from a three-quarters slot and gets excellent action on a fastball that usually hovers at 90-91 mph and has been clocked as high as 96. He also throws a curve, circle change and slider, but his low arm slot makes it difficult to execute those pitches. His change has good diving action.
