Adam Akin
Director of Scouting

Name: Wiley Barton
High School: Trousdale County
State Rank:
Position Rank: 14

9/25/16 - 60 Time: 7.32, Position Velocity:  OF-78, Exit Velocity: 85
5-foot-9, 155-pound, LHH hit from the same balanced and even stance we had seen from him at recent events, stays loose and also showed that simple and easily repeatable load as well, bat path remained flat and allowed him to put together a very good round of BP, ability to hit the ball anywhere it is pitched.  Defensively, uses those good hands and footwork to play a solid outfield and make all of the routine plays, solid player.

9/25/16 - Max FB: 82, FB: 78-82, CB: 68-71, CH: 75-76, 
5-foot-7, 165-pound, LHP showed very much the same as he had the previous weekend at our Unsigned Senior Games but with a little more velocity, Wiley topped out at 79 on 9/18, only to come back and get as high as 82 the following weekend,  same compact and repeatable delivery we have seen from him in the past, uses a shorter arm action that comes through a high ¾ slot to deliver.  Fastball has some slight run, curveball showed some late and sharp 1/7 shape through the zone, changeup was mostly just a change of pace.
