Halemanu sat 87-91 mph most of his college career before making a mechanical adjustment at mid-season this year and suddenly shooting up to 92-96 mph. He went 5-2, 3.60 as Hawaii’s Saturday starter and struck out 31 batters in his final 34 innings on the strength of that velocity bump. Halemanu is a big-bodied righthander at 6-foot-4, 215 pounds and throws his fastball at a steep downhill angle to get a lot of ground balls. His upper-70s curveball gets solid two-plane depth from his over-the-top release point and his upper-70s changeup is a decent third offering. Halemanu’s control is just okay and will likely push him to the bullpen, where his fastball and curveball can play up even more. He is young for the class and projects to be taken late on the draft’s second day or early on the third day.
