Quote:
One of the more intriguing arms in the Northeast this year, Hackimer is a converted shortstop who throws from a sidearm slot with significantly more velocity than most sidearmers. Hackimer has pitched at 88-90 most of this spring, and can hit 91 with his heater. With his low arm slot Hackimer is able to get heavy sinking action on his fastball. His slider is also a weapon, and he has the ability to generate late break on the pitch and pound lefthanded hitters with it. Hackimer keeps both of his pitches down in the zone, though he can get wild and lose the zone at times. Some scouts view Hackimer as a potential quick-moving reliever, who could pitch in the Major Leagues with very little refinement.

Cannot complain about a potential fast moving reliever who is close to ML ready at this point.

You have to root for this kid, just because of the last name.

Any sort of major leaguer is great value on the third day.

#Mets took a local guy in 15th round of #MLBDraft, selecting @StJohnsBaseball closer Thomas Hackimer. Set school mark for career saves.

Amateur scouting director Tommy Tanous described Hackimer as a strike-thrower who relies on a sinker.

"He throws strikes, sinks the ball and gets a lot of outs, to simplify it," Tanous said. "Any time you get a college pitcher that throws strikes and has the ability to sink the ball, who pitches in a good conference, this kid was very appealing to us."
