    View Draft Report
    Hock was part of a stellar Pennsylvania 2014 prep class that also included Brendan McKay (Louisville) and J.J. Matijevic (Arizona), among others. He trained with former big league pitcher Jason Phillips before heading off to Stanford, where he was a preseason All-American this year after a strong summer in the Cape Cod League in 2016. Hock started in the Cape but had made all but two of his 75 appearances at Stanford in relief, with his 15 saves in 2017 ranking second in the country at the end of the regular season. The Cardinal have gone to Hock on back-to-back days or for longer outings, and at times his stuff hasn't been as crisp, often sitting 90-93 with a slurvier breaking ball. But when he's on, he's a physical 6-foot-5, 235-pound power pitcher, touching 96 and sitting 93-96 with a tight curve that flashes plus. His fastball's best attribute is its late, heavy sink. His changeup is a distant third pitch that he rarely uses. Hock has the body to eat innings as a starter and may get that chance in pro ball but otherwise profiles as a middle reliever.
