Prospect of the Day:  RHP Kyle Heckathorn

Heckathorn fell off the prospect map after imploding in his late-season promotion to Double-A Huntsville last season — especially following reports that he was not overly impressive in High-A Brevard County — but the right-hander appears to still have something left in the tank. Through four starts this season, he has compiled a 3.47 ERA and owns a very positive 23-to-4 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

The 6-foot-6 righty was known for his big fastball/slider combination coming out of college. In the professional ranks, however, his fastball has sat in the low-90s and his go-to offspeed offering has developed into his changeup. Back in 2010, opposing managers rated his changeup as the best in the Midwest League.

It has long been assumed that Heckathorn would eventually transition to the bullpen and see his fastball return to the mid-to-high 90s with a devastating slider in the high-80s. That plan has been postponed at this moment. The Brewers almost always allow a pitcher to fail as a starter before moving him to a relief role, and Heckathorn has begun this season as if he is not quite ready to relinquish the reigns. Keep an eye on his production throughout the summer, though, as it will be interesting to see if he fades off in the second half like last year.
