Hunter Greene won’t pitch the rest of the season

Right-handed prep pitching prospect Hunter Greene, who’s considered the top prospect in June’s MLB First-Year Player Draft, is shutting it done, as he won’t pitch for his high school team the rest of the season.

Greene is healthy and will continue to play shortstop for Sherman Oaks Notre Dame High School (Calif.) the rest of the season. He plans on throwing bullpen sessions to remain sharp to stay on track to pitch this summer.

Only 17 years old, Greene’s fastball consistently sits in the mid-90s and it reached as high as 102 mph this spring. A 6-foot-3 and 195-pound right-hander, Greene also throws an above-average curveball and a changeup.

A high school right-handed pitcher has never gone No. 1 overall, but Greene could be the first due to his star potential. The Minnesota Twins hold the No. 1 overall pick.
