    The gap between Hurt’s stuff and performance makes him one of the most divisive prospects in this year’s draft. Considered a potential first-round pick out of high school before a knee injury got in the way, Hurt logged a 5.06 ERA in three years at Southern California and even lost his spot in the Trojans rotation at one point. However, he began to turn the corner at the end of his sophomore year and appeared to be putting things together as a junior before the season shut down. Hurt has an appealing pitcher’s body at 6-foot-3, 215 pounds and some of the best pure stuff on the west coast. His fastball reaches 95-96 mph as a starter, his changeup is a consensus plus pitch he locates well and his curveball and slider each flash plus. Hurt’s issue is his fastball is too straight and plays down further due to below-average command, often leaving him to rely on his secondaries. He struggles to put together more than a few good innings at a time and scouts have long held concerns about his work ethic and makeup. Hurt’s stuff is loud enough that some teams could be interested as early as the third round, but others are turned off by a history of underperformance and have him as low as the eighth round.
