Debut Details
July 31, in a 14-3 loss to the Dodgers. The third of five pitchers, he allowed three runs, all earned, on three hits in one-third of an inning, striking out one and allowing one homer. Of 22 pitches, 13 were for strikes. Coming on in relief of Dominic Leone to start the bottom of the seventh inning, he gave up a single to the first batter he faced, Andrew Toles. With Kenta Maeda pinch-running for Toles, Chase Utley doubled to center to move Maeda to third base. Hathaway struck out Howie Kendrick on a foul tip, but Corey Seager followed with a three-run homer to left field, at which point Daniel Hudson replaced Hathaway on the mound.

Player Notes
Hathaway was one of four members of New Hampshire’s Franklin Pierce College team to be drafted in 2013 (the others: RHP Trevor Graham by the Cubs, and RHP Kevin McGowan and 1B Zach Mathieu by the Mets). He was a sophomore sign at age 23 and had missed significant time due to shoulder and elbow woes, but his mid-90s fastball and plus curveball still caught the eye of scouts. He appeared in just three games in his first pro season as he continued his recovery before seeing a bit more time – eight games – at South Bend (Class A) in 2014, posting a 3.68 ERA in 14.2 IP. In 2015, between two Class A stops at Kane County and Visalia, he went 5-3 with a 2.89 ERA in 45 games, striking out 48 batters in 43 .2 IP and walking just 15, allowing 35 hits to limit hitters to a .208 average. Overall, he brought a 3.07 combined ERA into his big league debut.
