Biographical Data

School Type:High school
Academic Class:Senior
Weight:180 lbs.
Report Date(s):04/15/08

Focus Area
Fastball:Haley threw his fastball in the 90-95 mph range.
Fastball movement:He had some good movement on his fastball.
Curve:He has a plus curve that he throws up to 82 mph
Changeup:He doesn't need it in games, but he has one.
Control:He commands his pitches well.
Poise:He's a very good competitor and is very smart on the mound.
Physical Description: Haley is built kind of like fellow East Texas native Clay Buchholz.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Two above-average to plus pitches.
Weaknesses:Pitching in a small town, there's the concern that he's a big fish in a small pond. Commitments to Rice University are often hard to break.
Summary:It's not a good year for talent in the usually loaded state of Texas, but there always has to be at least a few intriguing prep arms. Haley may be the best of the lot with a projectable frame, a good delivery and two outstanding pitches he commands well. He's another East Texas kid in the Clay Buchholz mold and if he can prove people he's not just good because of the lack of competition -- something he's done all spring -- he should give the state of Texas some pride on Draft day.
