The Top Spot

Adam Hachman LHP / Timberland, MO / 2023

The 6 foot 4 LHP has taken a significant jump since a year ago. At the Future Games (2020) Hachman pitched in the 82-84 range, with a solid feel for his changeup and showed promise and projection that all still holds true, except this summer the young lefty has been 91-95 topping at 96 with the makings of a plus curveball and changeup. There are no signs of the development slowing down anytime soon and he should be considered one of the countries top prospects in the 2023 class.
