Ethan Hankins, SP - CLE


Recommended Posts

At one point he was in the conversation with the number 1 overall pick last year before a muscle issues in his shoulder. Loooooong way from the bigs, but if you don't see the similarities to Whitley, you should look again.

I don't think I can hold off adding him anymore. Here are his season stats:

30.2IP, 16H, 3ER, 13BB, 35K for a 10.27 K/9, 3.8 BB/9, 0.95 WHIP

 

i dont know why, but everytime i look at a stat line, i look at Hits Allowed + Walks Allowed.  And if that figure is lower than Innings Pitched, you got a pretty good pitcher there.  I think I read that when Kershaw was a minor leaguer because he consistently did that, and he turned out pretty good  I like Hankins, been following him for about a year now

Meh, pretty much every video highlight of him shows him  missing his spots by a wide margin.  Watch the film again and pay attention to the catcher’s mitt.  This margin of error will work in the minors because of his stuff but it’s not going to work in the majors.  He has a lot of work to do IMO.

You can't expect him to have Cy Young caliber command as a 19 year old. You shouldn't be focused on him missing spots at this stage. Almost every pitcher has those issues early in their careers. What you should be focused on is the repertoire and if it has the potential be something special. As of right now I'm very impressed with what I have seen. Command and control will come later down the road.
