Uncommitted. Five-foot-7, 145-pounds. Large frame with squared shoulders and strength throughout. Starts open at the plate using a leg lift trigger to get his swing started. Stays balanced through to extension. Present strength is noticeable at the plate where he drove balls to all fields with a slight uppercut barrel path through the zone. Shows present hand/bat speed with excellent timing. Registered a 78 mph exit velocity off a tee. Defensively he sets u deep in his crouch using his lower half strength to explode out of his crouch with excellent footwork. Transfers were clean and his arm shows present strength and accuracy. On the mound he showed feel for a three-pitch mix from a true dip-and-drive delivery that sees him sink his hips onto the back leg before driving down the mound. Compact arm through to a 3/4 release point. Arm is quick and clean. Fastball shows hints of run to the arm side while working from black-to-black. Changeup shows late diving action to the back foot of righties on a downhill plane. Showed the ability to start the pitch away and run back over the plate. Curveball is a tight spin pitch and showed two types of break - one sharp and biting and the other more of a tumbling break.

Rising Stars Showcase - Five-foot-7, 145-pounds, medium frame that is long in appearance with wiry strength. Long limbs and large feet. At the plate Wirthgen shows some present bat speed and feel for the barrel while consistently keeping his hands inside the ball. Flashes some pull side pop with a gap-to-gap approach. Drops his hands into launch position before exploding his lower half and fast hands through the zone. Behind the plate he shows clean, quick exchanges from a quiet, sturdy base. Present arm strength is average with some accuracy on throw downs. Has a tendency to stand straight up out of his crouch. On the mound, Wirthgen really projects. Shows a full circle in the back through to a ¾ slot. Gains ground down the mound with an explosive lower half. Fastball shows late sinking action to the arm side. Curveball shows early with 2/8 shape. Slowed arm on the pitch at times while keeping it down in the zone. Changeup really projects as a future plus pitch. Maintains fastball arm speed and pitch shows sinking action to the back foot of righties.
