Matt Hobgood’s Camden Yards bullpen session

June 9, 2009

Here is video from Matt Hobgood’s bullpen session last week at Camden Yards. The Orioles selected the Gatorade National High School Player of the Year with the fifth overall pick. Hobgood is a durable right-hander who should project as a front-end starter for a contending team. We covered Hobgood extensively this season. In Southern California, Hobgood’s durability and competitive nature matched his fastball, which he can pitch with at 94 mph. I’ve seen him touch 95 and 96 mph and have a curveball with tight rotation. He’s got the workings of a change that he has thrown with a splitter grip and a cutter.
