While Clements took a step back at the Perfect Game showcase, Hammes was the best pitcher at the event. He showed a lively 90-92 fastball that he delivered again and again with little effort. At 6-foot-7 and 230 pounds, he projects to throw in the mid-90s. His curveball and changeup need work but show promise. He hasn't pitched for his high school team but has stood out in Perfect Game wood-bat leagues and spring showcases. He reminds scouts of Jeff Juden and that's meant as a compliment--Juden was the 12th pick in the 1989 draft before embarking on a mediocre big league career.
