Starting Pitcher | Retired or Inactive Players
Hessel also has a decent changeup. He tends to work slowly when in a jam, which just makes his problems worse by lulling his fielders to sleep. If you're going in to face Hessel, better be wearing plenty of protection. He's wild. In his first taste of the majors, he has kept lefthanders in check but wasn't as effective against righties.
Defense & Hitting
He's average in terms of controlling the running game. Hessel is nothing special in the field. Hessel is a surpisingly good hitting pitcher. And I'm not sure you can say this about a pitcher, but Hessel has some pop in his swing. Interesting sidenote, The Retired or Inactive Players have been known to use Hessel as a pinch-runner on occasion.
Hessel flat-out isn't ready for this level of competition. Expect the Retired or Inactive Players to send him down promptly. But if you ask me, I'll pass on Hessel.
