I just love this kid.
I know he gotten some good attention, but I think he has a shot to be a good no.2 starter.
Something I look for in pitching prospects other than above avg stuff is their k/bb ratio.
For the year Hutchinson has pitched 149.1ip, and has racked up 171k and 35bb. for a ratio of 4.89 k/bb (extremley good) over three levels. what is interesting is that as he got promoted he for the most part improved his k/bb ratio while still maintaining an elite k/9ip ratio.
here's Hutchinson's k/9ip / bb/9ip / k:bb
A-: 10.5k/9ip, 2.375bb/9ip, 4.42k:bb (72ip)
A+: 9.53k/9ip, 2.02bb/9ip, 4.71k:bb (62.1ip)
AA: 12.6k/9ip, 1.2bb/9ip, 10.5k:bb (15ip)
granted he'sonly made 3 starts in AA, but the small sample size looks encouraging.
I've heard his fb sits in the low 90s and can touch 95 and rates as above avg/plus(bc of his command). while his slider and changeup are both avg with the chance to be better.
