    Hopkins has been a two-way player for both College of Charleston and Winthrop, though he hasn’t found extreme success on either side of the ball. Hopkins has a career ERA of 6.63 over 57 innings and has a career .250/.325/.471 slash line, with 12 home runs, 12 doubles and 16 stolen bases in 99 games. Hopkins earns more pro interest for his potential and upside on the mound, particularly once he puts the bat down and focuses on pitching full time. With a 6-foot-4, 200-pound frame, Hopkins throws a fastball in the 92-93 mph range that has been up to 98 in the past, and he also has a mid-80s slider that has two-plane break and could become a plus pitch with more refinement. He’s mixed in a mid-80s changeup as well, but shows considerably more feel for his fastball/slider combination and has below-average strike-throwing ability overall. A starter this spring with Winthrop, Hopkins might have potential as a two-pitch reliever in pro ball, where his stuff could take a step forward in shorter outings and with a full-time pitching focus.
