One of the top pitching performers in the Cape Cod League last summer, Hamilton seemed poised to go out in the first three rounds this spring. He shifted from closer, a role in which he had a 2.09 ERA and 28 saves over the last two seasons, to starting for Washington State's new coaching staff. He struggled in the role in terms of results but gave a rebuilding program a steady presence and chance to win on Fridays. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Hamilton has a 92-94 mph fastball as a starter that touches 96 and throws strikes with it. He'll work downhill more when he uses his lower half more in his delivery. Hamilton's fastball tends to flatten out, and his changeup is too firm. His hard slider has its moments and plays up in the bullpen, but his long arm action makes it hard to command.
