Arm Action: RH. 3Q slot, quick arm.
FB: T86, 85-85 mph. Late arm side boring action. T2240, 2203 average rpm.
CB: 70-71 mph. Sharp 11/5 shape and break, developing out pitch weapon. T1171, 993 average rpm.

3/16/24
RHP Sam Hoeft (Port Washington, 2025) measured at a strong and athletic 6-foot-2, 178 pounds with upside to his frame. Hoeft had an overall solid performance on the mound showcasing a three-pitch mix with a fastball, curveball and change-up. His fastball topped out at 86 mph with late arm side boring action in the zone. He tunneled the curveball with 11/5 shape and break and has the makings of an out-pitch type weapon for both left and right-handed hitters. His change-up is thrown with fastball intent and has both fading action and late downer depth at the plate. The performance confirmed why Hoeft is firmly in our 2025 rankings and a player we are excited to see this spring.

INF/RHP Sam Hoeft (Port Washington, 2025) was a workhorse for his high school team, and has used that experience to find success over the course of the 2023 summer circuit as a two-way prospect, showing well at The Rock. Standing at an athletic 6-foot-3, 180-pounds, Hoeft showed well at the plate, utilizing his wiry frame and strength within his hands to drive the baseball. That transitioned into live gameplay, where Hoeft, playing against a majority of prospects a year older than himself, went 1-for-1 late in the game. He also threw a clean inning on the mound, using a low-80s fastball and late breaking slider to navigate through the order. Hoeft’s projection and present tools make him an intriguing follow for the future, as our staff will get another look at him at the 16U PBR at The Rock Tournament this weekend.

He showed a curveball that he can land for strikes with an 11/5 break, and a slider with short lateral break that he can land for strikes, too. During batting practice, he showed the ability to impact the ball gap-to-gap with quick hands that produced a max exit velocity of 89.8 mph, and a max batted ball distance of 331 feet. Defensively, he showed soft hands and quality actions. He recorded a max infield velocity of 79 mph.
