At 6-foot-11, 190 pounds and with extremely long, lean limbs, Hjelle looks like he belongs on a basketball court. But he was a breakout star at Top Prospect Showcase last June. Showing feel for three pitches, he gets good, downhill angle on his fastball, which sits 86-89 from a high-3/4 slot. It dropped to the mid 80s out of the stretch. His breaking ball is slurvy, but has tight rotation. He also shows good feel for a changeup that has arm-side run.
