After pitching out of the bullpen his first two season, Hess has had a strong year while pitching in a hitter's haven. He has a quick arm and hides the ball well, with his 89-93 mph fastball jumping out of his hand, touching 96 at its best with armside run. His slider shows above-average potential but tends to get long with more lateral tilt than horizontal depth. His changeup gives him a viable three-pitch mix. The 6-foot-1, 198-pounder has an athletic build with some strength to his lower half. His size and high-effort delivery have scouts projecting him to end up in the bullpen long-term, though he has thrown strikes consistently (3.2 walks per nine in career with a 2.9 strikeout-walk ratio).
