Ethan Hankins, SP - CLE

18-year old pitcher in the short season leagues. Was drafted last year and is the Indians' #9 prospect according to mlb.com. I ran across him via this video:

One of my favorite pitching prospects. Obviously a lot can happen but the sky is the limit. So much velocity with such little effort

I like him in theory but I’d like to see him regain confidence in his offspeed/breaking stuff. His FB is filthy enough to where he could skyrocket with more seasoning though

Had his second outing last night. Has not yet given up a hit.

At one point he was in the conversation with the number 1 overall pick last year before a muscle issues in his shoulder. Loooooong way from the bigs, but if you don't see the similarities to Whitley, you should look again.

based purely on youtube footage, he is the best pitching prospect I've ever seen. Completely insane stuff.
2023 seems like a super conservatice projection.

I don't think I can hold off adding him anymore. Here are his season stats:

30.2IP, 16H, 3ER, 13BB, 35K for a 10.27 K/9, 3.8 BB/9, 0.95 WHIP

i dont know why, but everytime i look at a stat line, i look at Hits Allowed + Walks Allowed.  And if that figure is lower than Innings Pitched, you got a pretty good pitcher there.  I think I read that when Kershaw was a minor leaguer because he consistently did that, and he turned out pretty good  I like Hankins, been following him for about a year now
