Scouting Report
: Big lefty whose fastball sits around 92-94 mph and  tops out at 98 mph with very good life. Aggressive, throws strikes and gets ahead in the count.  Also mixes in a biting 82-83 mph plus slider, and an improving 80-81 mph changeup.  Very good control.  Team leader and a hard worker.  A closer in college, Hagadone could make it as a starter if his changeup keeps improving.  Not a lot of miles on his arm.  Needs to work on keeping his delivery consistent. At this stage, despite having fluid arm action, his delivery is a bit compact. The team is still undecided as to whether Hagadone will be a starter or a reliever long-term.  Hagadone had TJ Surgery in early June 2008, and returned to the mound in Greenville almost exactly one year later.
