2017

One of the most athletic prep pitchers selected in last year's draft, Wentz could have been an early-round pick as a hitter, but as a projectable 6-foot-5 lefty with a plus fastball, he was more attractive on the mound. The Braves selected him with the 40th overall pick, but only 16 players topped his $3.05 million signing bonus, so it's fair to view Wentz as a top-20 talent in the class. In addition to a mid-90s heater, Wentz's curveball and changeup could both be plus offerings down the road, giving him legitimate frontline upside. He allowed zero runs and nine baserunners (five coming on walks) while notching a 42.9 percent strikeout rate over 12 innings in the Gulf Coast League before he was quickly promoted to the Appalachian League. Wentz finally started to show some flaws against more advanced hitters, posting a 14 percent walk rate while the opposition hit .265 against him. His command/control will be worth monitoring this year with Low-A Rome, but he has age and athleticism on his side, and the stuff to post gaudy strikeout totals in his first full season.
