D-backs go back to pitching with Hathaway

Taken 420th overall in the 14th round, Steve Hathaway became the first pitcher drafted by the D-backs on the third day of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft.

A left-hander out of Franklin Pierce University in New Hampshire, Hathaway appeared in eight games (six starts) this season, tossing 31 innings and finishing with a 2.90 ERA and 37 strikeouts. His command shined through in the fact that he only walked eight batters all year.

Hathaway began his collegiate career at Dean College before transferring in 2011. His first season at Franklin Pierce, he earned a Northeast-10 Conference All-Rookie Team selection by posting a 6-2 record with a 3.64 ERA and one complete game over 47 innings.
