Hamann is more attractive as a prospect than his 5.80 ERA might indicate. He was slow to regain his form after arthroscopic shoulder surgery truncated his breakout sophomore season in 2011, but he recorded a 2.12 ERA over his final five starts as Toledo won the Mid-American Conference Western Division. When he's at his best, he can sit at 90-93 mph and touch 95 with his fastball deep into ballgames. At times, he'll work at 87-92 mph and not hold his velocity, so he needs to add strength to his 6-foot-3, 163-pound frame. He throws a pair of inconsistent breaking balls, with his slider ranking ahead of his curve and showing some late action when it's working well. His fastball command wavers as well. Though Hamann will get a chance to start in pro ball, his future may be as a reliever.
