    Hendrix looked to be a potential prominent pick coming off of an excellent sophomore season and a very strong summer with Team USA. But he took a big step back this spring as he became too focused on his newfound velocity. Ecker pitched at 92-94 mph in his sophomore season, but sat 95-99 at times this spring and touched 101. His curveball also benefitted and suffered from his improved arm speed--it has great spin but Hendrix has been unable to locate it. On the right night, Hendrix has two plus pitches, but he hasn't controlled either of them this year. In conference games, Hendrix walked 12 in 10 innings, forcing the coaching staff to turn elsewhere late in the season. Hendrix has an outstanding arm that should entice teams, but his struggles will mean he won't be taken nearly as quickly as the top two-round talent he looked to be heading into the year.
