8/23/23

 C PJ Hamel (Arrowhead, 2025) impressed in Sheboygan for a second straight year after emerging as a winner at the 2022 Eastern Wisconsin Open. The to-be junior backstop stands at an ultra-projectable 6-foot-3, 185-pound frame with long levers. At the plate, Hamel starts from a relaxed setup and uses a slightly uphill path to generate hard contact. During BP, he took one of the louder rounds of the day, registering a max exit velocity of 91.4 mph, and a peak distance of 348 feet. Defensively, Hamel had the strongest arm from behind the dish, with his best bullet coming in at 78 mph. He was also quick out of the chute, with pop times in the 2.18-2.20 range. An exciting, high-ceiling player that projects well.

C/OF PJ Hamel (Arrowhead, 2025) is listed at a projectable 6-foot-3, 180 pounds, with long levers. Hamel impressed our staff both at the plate and on defense. During BP, he showed a short and compact swing that can impact the ball to both gaps. He recorded a max exit velocity of 88.5 mph and a max batted ball distance of 309 feet. He impressed further in the outfield where he recorded one of the top outfield velocities at the event, at 85 mph, along with one of the top catcher velocities at the event (75 mph). Hamel displayed athleticism both behind the plate and in the outfield, diversifying his toolset and coming away as a player to check back in  on this spring and summer.

8/22/22

Hamel  is listed at an uber-projectable 6-foot-3, 170-pounds with plenty of room to add on strength in the coming years. At the plate, the right-handed hitter stays above the ball with a short/direct path, extending through contact with a high finish. On the infield, Hamel works with a two-hand gather out front and reliable hands. He then went on to take reps behind the plate, moving athletically down to block and out of the crouch to defend the bunt. Hamel also proved he can control the run game, reaching up to 73 mph from the chute with a short transfer and recording a top pop-time of 2.22 seconds.
