Interview With 6th Round Pick Jason Hursh

SCOUTING REPORT
Hursh has a commitment to Oklahoma State, and was the #173 prospect in Baseball America’s draft rankings.  He pitches in the 90-93 MPH range, touching 94 at times.  He has a promising curve ball and slider, although neither pitch is consistent.  Hursh needs work on his command, which is something the Pirates stress in the lower levels.  He’s got a smaller frame, and generates a lot of his velocity with his arm speed.  Hursh throws across his body, which adds life to his pitches.  The combination of a lot of arm speed and throwing across his body isn’t ideal.  Hursh could be a project for the Pirates.
