    Hurley was one of the more productive run scorers on Virginia Tech’s 2021 team as a freshman, but he made a significant jump forward as a hitter during his 2022 sophomore season, when he slashed .375/.452/.664 with 14 home runs and 23 doubles for one of the better offensive teams in the country. Hurley parlayed that performance into a roster spot with Team USA in 2022 and then hit a career-high 17 home runs as a junior in 2023 with a .320/.414/.713 slash line in 45 games. Hurley has a lean 6-foot, 185-pound frame that still has room to layer on more strength, but he has already shown all-fields home run power and solid exit velocities, with a 93 mph average and 109 mph 90th percentile mark in 2023. He is an aggressive hitter who starts with an open stance before taking a big leg kick to get back to an even position, though he consistently flies open early and has a decent amount of head movement throughout the swing. Hurley will chase out of the zone consistently, and had a strikeout rate of 19% compared to just a 9.5% walk rate, but he did post a 1.000-plus OPS vs. all pitch types this spring with a reasonable 75% contact rate. Hurley played left field in deference to Gavin Cross in 2022, but moved to center in 2023. He is a plus runner who takes good routes and should be able to play all three outfield positions, with above-average arm strength.
