Scouting Report: Hammes throws a 92-94 mph fastball, a low-80s slider, and a legit low-to-mid-80s circle changeup. Can show his secondary pitches too much. Has struggled with control problems throughout his career. Only pitches out of the stretch. Retired following the 2008 season, but returned with Boston in 2010.
