The versatile infielder has made himself a valuable commodity with his hard-nosed play and sure-handed defense. Drafted by the Rockies in the 29th round of the 2012 draft, Hutcheson played at least one game at every infield station for Tri-City last year, helping start 11 double plays. The Fresno State product even pitched in the Dust Devils’ season finale, a 13-inning loss at Salem-Keizer. This year, he’s hitting .267 and is tied for the team lead with five runs scored.
