Hynick, 24, made a name for himself June 30 when he threw a seven-inning perfect game for Colorado Springs against Portland. The righthander was 10-9, 3.83 in 26 starts for the Sky Sox, with 92 strikeouts and 48 walks in 155 innings. A third-round pick in ’06 out of Birmingham Southern, Hynick sits in the high-80s with his fastball and complements it with a changeup, curveball and split-fingered fastball. Hynick isn’t much of a groundball pitcher and doesn’t boast of a strong strikeout rate, but he can be effective with his stuff. He projects as a back-of-the rotation starter or a middle reliever in the big leagues.
