    Hanewich was a stalwart in Stanford's rotation in 2014-15, making 27 starts over that span despite averaging 4.6 walks per nine innings in that span. However, the Bradenton, Fla., native has battled control issues and nagging injuries the last two seasons, when he's thrown just 70 innings. Hanewich throws across his body a bit but has a lively, heavy fastball when he locates it, at times sitting as high as 91-96 mph and at others parking at 90-93 with sink. His fastball command remains below-average; he's hit 46 batters in four season as he struggles to locate his heater. His slider remains inconsistent but can flash plus at up to 80 mph. Recruited as a third baseman and pitcher, Hanewich has strength at 6-foot-3, 240 pounds and not much projection, but there's room for growth if a club can get the senior to improve his delivery and get him on time more often.
