With Pick 35 the Indians Select RHP Ethan Hawkins in the MLB First-Year Player Draft

The Indians got themselves hopefully an arm for the future with pick 35 in Monday’s MLB First-Year player draft, as they took right-handed pitcher Ethan Hawkins from Cumming, Georgia with the selection.

Hawkins, a 6-foot-6, 215 pound thrower, just wrapped up his senior year at Forsyth High School. The Indians pick of Hawkins came after the team lost Carlos Santana this last offseason to the Philadelphia Phillies.

He’s verbally committed to play next year at Vanderbilt. Reports say he could have the best fastball of anyone in this year’s MLB Draft.
