Hicks is an "05" LHP/1B from Houston, TX. At 5'10/160 he has a nice lean athletic frame that projects to gain strength. On the mound he shows skills to develop as a good college lefty. His arm from a 3/4 slot works fairly good with good use of his body. He located well and has a very good mound presence. He works with a high leg kick and throws a little across his body. He likes to work low, while challenging hitters. His fastball was low 80s with nice arm-side run, but can become better with some loosening of the arm and better overall mechanics. He throws his curve at low 60s with 1-7 rotation and a tight spin with some depth. He will work a cutter in on the hands of a right handed hitter at 70-71. His change at 70mph shows good sinking action. At the plate he carries his hands high and uses an inside-out approach. Mostly a contact type hitter at this time with wood. Scooter could really develop into an excellent college lefty and he is an outstanding student.
