MLB Draft 2013 scouting report round-up: LHP Hunter Green

Taking a look at one of the youngest players in the 2013 MLB Draft, high school lefty Hunter Green.

Left-handed pitcher Hunter Green is one of the youngest players entering the 2013 MLB draft, making him an exciting pitcher with plenty of projectability, but one far away from making an impact at the major-league level.

Green's best pitch is his fastball, as his off-speed pitches need some work. The starter is still growing into his body, which makes some scouts hopeful that he can add more velocity as he continues to mature. The 17-year-old also needs to work on his command, but any team that selects the starter will give him plenty of opportunities to improve.

The southpaw is committed to the University of Kentucky, so he does have the option of joining the college ranks if he does not come to an agreement with whatever team drafts him.

What they're saying

John Sickels, Minor League Ball: "Green is a big lefty with a live arm, projectability...he's rather raw but moldable.

Jonathan Mayo, MLB.com: His fastball will touch the low 90s at times and it's easy to see more velocity coming as he physically matures. While he's had some delivery issues that impact his control and command, they seem correctable. That should help him throw his sharp, biting curve more consistently to go along with his sinking changeup."

Baseball America: " He throws from a low three-quarters arm angle and gets good armside run on his fastball, which appears even quicker because he throws with such little effort... He also has the potential for three plus pitches, displaying a quality curveball when he stays on top of it as well as feel for a changeup. "
