    Hackimer's performance out of St. John's bullpen has been exceptional. With an ERA just a smidge over 1.00, Hackimer is one of the most dominant closers in college baseball. Many teams were interested in Hackimer last year, when he ranked No. 346 in the BA 500. The Mets selected him in the 15th round last year but could not sign the academically inclined closer. A converted shortstop, he throws from an unconventionally low arm slot, slightly lower than sidearm. He pitches mostly in the 88-91 range and touched 92, with quality movement on his fastball, and he mixes in a frisbee slider to keep hitters guessing. Hackimer is a strike-thrower with a proven track record of getting good hitters out. Not only has he dominated for the Red Storm, but he also had an exceptional summer pitching for the Bourne Braves of the Cape Cod League. He could be a quick-moving reliever.
