The 28-year-old Hayes was originally an 11th round pick in 2010 and has been in the organization ever since. Though he rose up the ranks quickly, and made it to Double-A by 2012, Hayes was still at the same level in 2015, before finally earning a promotion to Louisville. Hayes has been a high strikeout, but also a high walk pitcher in his professional career. In his seven minor league seasons, he is just south of 10 K/9, but also just under five BB/9. After a strong 2016 Spring Training, where Hayes struck out 15, allowing just one run and four walks in 11 innings, he was on the radar for a big league promotion. Hayes earned that promotion on April 20, and made his debut just after. Hayes has two quality pitches with a fastball and a slider. The fastball ranges from 92-95 MPH and the slider has some quality movement. Hayes has seen gradual improvement of command each season, and that will be a key to him sticking.
