Matt Hague
Name: Matthew Donald Hague
Born: Aug 20, 1985 in Bellevue, Wash. USA
High School: Kentwood HS, Kent, Wash.

Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 9th round (264th overall) by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2008 (signed for $25,000)
Hague, who spent his first three seasons at Washington, planned on transferring to Clemson before eligibility issues arose. He has hit throughout his college career, including a .299 performance in the Cape Cod League last summer. He has an unconventional set-up and a big bat wrap in back, but he's so quick and strong (6-foot-2, 215 pounds) that he has no problems producing. Most of Hague's value lies in his offense, and he fits much better defensively in right field than at first base. Some scouts are intrigued by his pitching because he has flashed a 94 mph fastball in brief relief stints, but he'll be drafted as a hitter. He turned down the Indians as an 11th-rounder last year.
