June 25-27 (NYS Games)

Lanky body with long limbs, easy projection. Steady movements focused on downhill movement. Stays fairly balanced. Arm slot is high 3/4. CB shows tight spin and 11/5 shape. FB gets on hitters quick and is deceptively sneaky, peaked 86 mph sitting in the 80-84 range. CH has feel and tails away (circle change). 
May 2018
6-foot-1, 180-pound right-handed pitcher. The fastball has arm side run, sitting at 80-82 MPH. The breaking ball has a very good shape to it, 68-69 mph with depth. The changeup is a good pitch, 66-68 mph, needs to throw it with better hand speed. The delivery is online, only from the stretch. The arm is short on the backside and quick out front. Added some pounds to this guy and he could be a serious arm. The tracking of the front shoulder comes offline at times. Competes well and works quick and aggressively.
ENY All-Star Games (July 18, 2017)

Cole stands 6-foot-1, 170-pounds with a well proportioned body build. Pitching- On the mound there is reason to be excited. Although currently measurable stats are just slightly above average, there's signs of bigger and better things to come. He uses a simple, well paced tempo to his delivery, sound mechanics with a clean easy arm-action. Releases from a high-3/4 slot with run to his arm-side on a fastball sitting 78-81 mph. Shows the ability to spin a breaking ball with 11/5 shape in the upper 60's. Change-up has some downhill depth with fade. Seems composed and confident the two times we have seen him throw. Would like to see him lengthen his stride and create a straighter, more stretched out drive leg, currently it almost touches the ground eliminating full-power. With some hard-work and adjustments, Hedden could really turn some heads this spring. He also swings with loose hands, mostly level bat-plane from a compact stroke. 79 mph exit velocity.
Campus Series-Albany (July 18, 2017) 
Hedden stands in at 6-foot-1, 170-pounds with a lean athletic frame. Offensively- Righty sets up in an open stance with his feet just outside shoulder width. Shows a slight knee bend with an upright torso holding his hands in front of the back shoulder using little pre-pitch bat movement. On pitch, his trigger is a knee raise to stride forward squaring up to the pitcher while his hands move back slightly into his hitting position. Shows quick hands to the zone with a level barrel path throughout into a high one-handed finish. Has good lower body rotation getting whole frame involved in swing. Demonstrated ability to hit line drives up the middle and pull slide during batting practice round. Clean, fluid swing with potential. Recorded an exit velocity of 74 MPH. Defensively- Good approach and footwork getting to the baseball. Shows good fielding mechanics funneling the ball into the chest with a quick transition to the throwing position. Takes aggressive steps towards intended throwing target and was accurate with throws. Moves well left/right and in on the run. Recorded a positional arm velocity of 73 MPH. Pitching- Sets up on the left side of the rubber with a high leg raise above the hip crease. Breaks down well with good loose arm action with a high ¾ release point. Smooth with his delivery utilizing his whole body throughout the process of the pitching motion. Will only get better and stronger. Fastball range was 79-81 MPH and peaked at 81 MPH showing good arm side run. Curveball was 65-68 MPH with 12/6 action and tight spin that was consistently thrown for a strike. Change up was 60-61 MPH and showed arm side sink. Overall a solid 2019 prospect that could potentially be a two-way player with continued development.
