Tall, lean, narrow, long features. Big hands. Long levered body. Has good athletic frame to fill out in the future. Starts his delivery from the far left side of rubber. Short side step to an abbreviated belt high glove separation. Has a slight stand up finish to most pitches. Will gain longer stride as he continues to get stronger and understand his body relationship to his delivery. With this short stride, he has some run and sink to his pitches. Has a H ¾-arm slot. Good tempo and confidence to his delivery is present. Fastball is firm and locates well in zone consistently. Slider has good tight spin and accuracy with depth. Mixes a straight change up to compliment his order. Hooker has a very bright, high ceiling upside as he has the body and strength to improve as well as strong work ethic. Will have a good chance to be a starter at the next level due to command of his pitches.
