USA CNT TRIALS: Few athletes can match Hackenberg’s bloodlines, as he is the youngest of four brothers who were all standout athletes: Christian played in the NFL, Brandon played in MLS, and Adam is in the White Sox system. Drue wasted no time making a name for himself this spring, emerging as the staff ace for the best Virginia Tech team ever and earning Freshman All-America honors, finishing 10-2, 3.30 with 87 strikeouts and 19 walks in 92.2 innings. He faded late in the season, but he still showed plenty of arm strength in his lone appearance with Team USA, though it was a rocky outing, as he allowed two unearned runs and recorded just one out. Ultra-physical at 6-2, 220 pounds, Hackenberg generates 91-93 mph heat with minimal effort, and he has flashed a wipeout slider in the past, though he did not have great feel for it in his CNT appearance. A three-quarters power slurve at 80-81, the pitch features good spin in the 2600s. His 86-88 mph changeup was below-average in this viewing but has been better in the past. Look for Hackenberg to rest up in the offseason and return better than ever as a sophomore, when he could take the jump to legitimate college baseball superstar.

Durable frame with a strong lower half. The arm is fairly loose and clean with plenty of arm speed through release. In the first Hackenberg was 91-92 and touched 93 once. The fastball stayed up in the first and he had a hard time getting it down to the glovee side, drifting up and to the arm side. In the second the velocity was 89-91 and seemed to be able to get it down in the zone and to the glove side a little easier. It was not until later into the first inning that Hackenberg showed the slider. Once he showed it, it was evident that he possesses a legitimate out pitch in the slider. The slider has hard 11/5 break that is late. The slider stayed 78-80 mph with spin that ranged from 2525-2667 and did not find a barrel during his two innings of work. The changeup was 85-86 mph with some late fade.
