WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Hibbing was considered a potential top 10 round pick by scouts up until he missed a start with a tender ulnar nerve in his forearm.  He throws an 88-91 MPH fastball, and has a curve ball that acts like a slider.  He worked on his changeup in 2011, and the pitch saw improvements.  Hibbing has a commitment to Iowa, making him a tough sign as a 42nd round pick.  He may be one of the Pirates’ “Plan B” picks.
