Relief Pitcher | Cold Lake Mud Cats
Hafey's bread and butter pitch is his slider. I've seen it baffle many a right handed batter. His fastball gets into the high 80s, but it's the sink that makes the pitch effective. He has an above-average changeup and the ability to throw from a variety of arm angles. His composure needs work. When Hafey starts getting hit, he gets mad and loses concentration. The running movement on his pitches makes life tougher on lefties than righties.
Defense & Hitting
Hafey uses a slide step to keep runners close. He fields both bunts and slow groundballs in front of the plate equally well. Hafey is a surpisingly good hitting pitcher. And I'm not sure you can say this about a pitcher, but Hafey has some pop in his swing.
