Drafted in the 3rd round (104th overall) by the Chicago Cubs in 2016 (signed for $573,900)
Hatch missed all of the 2015 with a sprained elbow ligament in his pitching arm, but after a long rehab (and no surgery) the redshirt sophomore responded with a dominant 2016 season as he became the second consecutive Big 12 pitcher of the year from Stillwater (Michael Freeman was the 2015 winner). Hatch doesn't have a sit-down strikeout pitch but his 89-94 mph fastball and above-average slider have made him an effective Friday starter. Hatch's elbow will require teams to dive deep into his medical reports. He's shown excellent durability this year; at one point he strung together three consecutive complete-game shutouts. He's not a potential pro ace, but he's a relatively safe pick as a pitcher with a back-of-rotation or middle-reliever profile.
