Major league career

Texas Rangers

Hunter was drafted by the Texas Rangers in the supplemental first round of the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft out of the University of Alabama. The Rangers were awarded a compensatory pick when Mark DeRosa left to go to the Chicago Cubs in free agency.

Hunter made his major league debut on August 1, 2008, taking on the Toronto Blue Jays. In 5 innings, he gave up 6 runs on 8 hits, walking two and striking out four batters. He recorded his first MLB win on July 3, 2009 against the Tampa Bay Rays, going 5.1 innings of 1 run 5 K ball. He recorded his first Major League complete game on September 13, 2009 against the Seattle Mariners. On October 3, 2009 Hunter gave up Ken Griffey Jr's 630th career home run.

Hunter made his 2010 season debut on June 5, pitching a complete game win against the Tampa Bay Rays. He was 13–4 for the season, with a 3.73 ERA. Hunter started Game 4 of the ALCS vs the Yankees.

Baltimore Orioles

On July 30, 2011, the Rangers traded Hunter and first baseman Chris Davis to the Baltimore Orioles for reliever Koji Uehara. In the 2012 season, Hunter has posted a 7-8 record. He was a starter for a while, but was optioned to Triple A Norfolk. He was placed in the bullpen as a reliever.[1] As a reliever Hunter's fastball averaged 96 MPH over the month of September, and topped out at 100 MPH, after averaging 91-92 MPH for his career.[2]
