Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 65 | Slider: 55 | Control: 50 | Overall: 40

Hanhold flew a bit under the radar as a bullpen piece and occasional starter as part of a loaded Florida Gators staff that featured future Draft prospects A.J. Puk, Alex Faedo, Dane Dunning, Logan Shore and Shaun Anderson. The Brewers liked his pure stuff enough to take him in the sixth round of the 2015 Draft, but they ended up sending him to the Mets as the player to be named later in the 2017 Neil Walker deal. After splitting much of '18 between Double-A and Triple-A, Hanhold had his contract purchased by the Mets and made his debut as a September callup, only to leave his third relief appearance with a strained left oblique muscle.

Hanhold spent the first year-plus of his pro career giving starting a try, but it didn't really take, and a 2017 move to the bullpen suited him and allowed his power arsenal to play up. The big right-hander will now touch 98 mph with excellent life on his fastball, and he missed more bats than he had previously in his career during his first season in the Mets' system. He pairs a slider, which flashes plus and touches 91 mph, with his heater, giving him more than enough for him to hold down a short relief role.

After getting a taste of the Majors last season, Hanhold should see even more work in 2019, especially if he can put the oblique issue behind him and miss bats like he did in '18.
