The 2016 SEC Freshman of the Year threw a fastball low and a little off target. We won't hold it against him, since he's probably been giving more attention to getting Alabama back to the College Football Playoff than to his pitching skills.

Hurts admitted to being "a little rusty" throwing a baseball, but he's proven his arm can make plays on the football field. He threw for 2,780 yards and 23 touchdowns last season.
