View Draft ReportKyle Hunter is a classic pitchability lefthander. The 6-foot-2, 207-pounder won't light up a radar gun, but he will locate his 87-89 mph fastball to both sides of the plate and touch 91. His changeup is his best pitch, and he has a little slider that's effective. Kansas State's best starter the last two years, he has been drafted twice, by the White Sox in the 33rd round out of high school and by the Yankees in the 43rd round as a sophomore-eligible last year. He's related to Hall of Fame shortstop Luke Appling.
