Whitley Talks Before Hooks Home Debut This Week

The 6'7" San Antonio native talked about skyrocketing up the Astros' system and pitching in his home state for the first time as a pro this week with the Hooks.

CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII SPORTS) - Astros' top pitching prospect Forrest Whitley has a giant presence about him. That's due in big part to his six-foot-seven inch frame.
 
The 19-year-old who towers over hitters is set to make his home debut for the Hooks this Thursday night. Last year's first round pick is one of only a handful of former high school pitchers to reach Double-A in just their first full pro season, Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke among them.
