Paul Mainieri on Ma'Khail Hilliard:
“We have watched Ma'Khail for a few years as he is a local guy and he capped off his high school career by leading Central High School to the state championship this past May. The things that stood out to me when I first saw him pitch were his loose arm action with a very good 12-to-6 curveball that displayed a lot of bite to it. He also has a good downhill angle with his fastball because of his overhand delivery. He sits in the upper 80s, touches the low 90s, and we expect those numbers to get higher as his athletic body develops.”
