Scouting Report: Big lefty whose fastball sits in the low 90s and tops out around 95 mph with good movement. Also mixes in a plus biting slider that he uses as his out pitch, a work-in-progress changeup, and is working on developing a splitter. Good control. Team leader and a hard worker. A closer in college, Hagadone could work as a starter if he can improve his changeup. Not a lot of miles on his arm. Needs to work on keeping his delivery consistent. At this stage, despite having fluid arm action, his delivery is a bit compact.

Hagadone currently holds a 0-1 record coupled with a 4.82 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, 11.61 K/9, 4.0 K/BB and a .250 BAA. These numbers are somewhat decieving though, as since his shellacking in his first professional appearance, Hagadone has not allowed a run in four two-inning outings (eight innings), while allowing just five baserunners and striking out eleven in that same span.

Hagadone ran his scoreless innings streak up to 14 with three more shutout innings in a start against Tri-City on Tuesday the 21st. He struck out three while walking one and allowing one hit. He's now struck out 17 hitters (while walking three) since his first disastrous outing, and currently sports a WHIP of 0.50 in the same time span.

Hagadone again continues to pile up impressive outings, this time with three more scoreless innings yesterday versus Staten Island. He allowed two hits, walked none and struck out four. He's currently thrown 17 consecutive scoreless innings since his debut and has compiled a 21/3 K/BB ratio and has actually struck out more than double the number of runners he's let reach base in that same time span.

Hagadone finishes the 2007 season on a very high note, allowing just one earned run in 23 innings after a rough debut. He posted a 1.85 ERA in 24.1 innings, but is still looking for his first professional win, going 0-1. He struck out 33 hitters while walking just 8.

Hagadone had a rough 2008 debut for Greenville yesterday, taking the loss for the Drive while allowing three runs (none earned) in 2 2/3 innings. Although he only allowed two hits, his control was off, giving up four walks. He struck out two hitters.

Hagadone really impressed in his second start of the season, throwing 5 scoreless innings while only letting up two baserunners, both on hits, as he picked up the win for Greenville. He struck out seven, and now holds a 1-1 record on the season, with 9 Ks in 7.2 innings. He has yet to allow an earned run.

Lefthander Nick Hagadone, Boston's first-round pick in 2007 who had Tommy John surgery last season, has been throwing bullpens for a month and is expected to be ready to throw in a game by the beginning of May, after starting to throw live batting practice in April. That might place him with one of the Sox' affiliates by the end of May, after a likely stay in extended spring training. "He's doing really well," director of player development Mike Hazen said. "He's throwing fastballs and changeups at this point, and the next step is going to be to start being able to spin the ball."
