The PR’s on PBR mounds live on with Wakelyn. At our Abbotsford Showcase, Wakelyn PR’d at 85 MPH after sitting 82-84 for most of his bullpen. Wakelyn possesses a funky right-handed delivery and swagger on the mound bound to frustrate opposing teams with his impressive pitch ability. Wakelyn showcased a unique three-pitch mix, and coaches have reported that he has only recently committed himself to disciplined weight room and plyo-ball programs. At 6-foot-2 165 pounds, Wakelyn has room to fill out and grow into his frame to help add a few ticks onto his velocity on his tailing fastball. He has good tempo to his stride and will rush hitters and help them bait on his best pitch, a change-up with late drop to his arm side and a 10-15 MPH deficit. He tunnels well, with an arm-side fastball change-up combo and a breaking ball that shapes well off both. Wakelyn will continue to grow to be a highly deceptive right-hander with stuff that could project as a starter or a multiple innings swingman out of the pen. He was a lot of fun to watch at the Abbotsford showcase, and it will be interesting to see what changes he undergoes as he continues to mature and develop physically. An exciting PO to watch going forward.

Wakelyn was one of the better arms showcased at the event, with a good fastball running it up to 85 mph on the day, a plus change-up and a good breaking ball. Wakelyn, a righty with a funky, up-tempo delivery releasing everything from a ¾ arm slot with some good downhill plane, makes it is easy to see how he gets outs, as his fastball is tough to pick up out of hand and jumps at the hitter upon release. Change-up was nothing short of great, living 10-12mph off his fastball with good tumble. Curveball had 11-5 break to it with good shape, an excellent complimentary pitch to work off his fast/change combo. A kid to track closely moving forward in the year can be terrific at the next level. Comes from a baseball family as his brother, Parker, currently pitches at South Mountain CC in Arizona. With added size to his 6'2/165 frame and continued development over the winter, look for Wakelyn to make a big jump this coming spring and summer as he already has most of the pieces in place to come into his own as a high-end arm from the right side.
