Scouting Report

11/25/19

After breaking into the 2021 Rankings this summer at #113, 6-foot-3, 190-pound LHH first baseman has continued to improve throughout the fall season w/ strong showings at Border Battle and Tri-Star Titans Scout Day. At the dish, balanced, open stance w/ simple load and small leg kick.  Possess good bat speed and gap-to-gap power (91 Exit Velo) from the left side w/ good launch.  Defensively, shows good movement patterns at 1B and shows enough speed (60: 7.36) to fill in at Corner OF.  In the Border Battle, Wheeley went 2 for 4 w/ a RBI-double and single while also tossing a quick, clean inning in relief (FB: 77-80). Some projection on the mound as frame develops, but Wheeley is an established power-left handed bat climbing the 2021 board.
