Scouts say that Heddinger's body and delivery are reminiscent of former teammate Buck Farmer, a fifth-round pick last year, but Heddinger does not have the same track record of success, control or slider. Heddinger has a pro body at 6-foot-4, 221 pounds with strength in his lower half. His fastball sits 88-91 mph, touching 93 from a high three-quarters arm slot. His breaking ball is inconsistent, but he shows enough for scouts to project it as average. He shows feel for a changeup. Heddinger has struggled with his control and hasn't missed many bats. His body and three-pitch mix give him a chance to start, making him a potential top-10-round pick.
