OF Derek Hinke: Hinke is a senior outfielder from Iowa who has signed to attend Johnson County CC in Kansas next year. This young man has really worked hard to improve his strength and it was obvious in the Spring League and during the Showcase by watching his bat speed and how the ball jumped off the wood. Hinke hits with a high leg lift that he gets down in time and an aggressive, full cut. He hit a couple of home runs during the Spring League and smoked some balls at the Showcase as well. Hinke’s aggressiveness and hitting approach means he pulls a lot of balls and some of those are going to keep going out of the park at the college level. Hinke runs well and his arm is strong from any of the outfield spots.

Hinke is a versatile outfielder / pitcher who does just about everything well. In the field he gets good reads, plays hard and can throw well, being clocked at 86 mph. He has quick and compact actions. In the 60, he ran a 7.26 but that speed translates better on the bases and in the field. His swing is extremely level and quick to the ball. He showed gap power from a fast bat and used a patient approach in the Midwest showcase. On the hill he threw an 85 mph fastball, 65-68 mph curveball and gets everything out of his body while still showing a less than maximum effort. Hinke is still a Junior and will have 2-way capabilities to offer at the College level.
