Uncommitted - Six-foot-4, 205-pounds. Extra-large frame with proportional strength throughout. Enormous hands and large feet give the indication he may not be done growing. Stays somewhat tall on the backside before using his lower half strength to drive and gain ground down the mound. Delivery goes from deliberate to explosive. Fastball has life as it enters the zone at 89 mph while showing the ability to work it black-to-black for strikes. Can pound it in on hitters on both sides of the plate and induced weak rollover contact with the pitch. Also elevated for swing-and-miss passes. Slider has a chance to be a special pitch with it’s tight spin and late break and depth. Throws the pitch from the same tunnel as the fastball making causing havoc for hitters. Threw both pitches for strikes in a clean outing that didn’t see a ball hit out of the infield. Wentz has a fresh arm after not throwing a ton in the spring and sports a 3.5 GPA.

Uncommitted. Possesses a strong frame at 6'4" 200 pounds with broad shoulders, a compact torso, and long, strong legs. He throws from a three-quarter arm slot, features fair angles, travels down the mound well, and is fairly linear to the plate. He threw exclusively from the set position and displayed a delivery that was very controlled, balanced and repeatable. He does a decent job of using his lower body, but has room for improvement as he could load into his back leg a little more and get more torque out of his hips. His hands separate in a timely manner and he presents some extension in his delivery with a nice follow through. His arm action is quick and features a short, but smooth, arm circle. He possesses long arms so the shorter arm circle probably benefits him and allows him to repeat himself more consistently. He throws from a nice down-hill plane and the baseball comes out of his hand clean. He showed a three-pitch mix: fastball, changeup and a slurve-type breaking ball. His fastball reached the mid 80's and flashed strike zone life with decent run and decent sink. Most of his fastball movement came late and he demonstrated the ability to control the pitch on both sides of the plate. His breaking ball has late break to it, flashes fair shape, and presented decent depth with a little bit of sweep. It is a work in progress and he liked to throw it in the dirt with two strikes. He also threw some change ups which flashed decent sink and decent fade; however, he did tend to slow down his delivery when he threw it. He pounded the zone with strikes pretty consistently, did not walk anybody, and flashed fair control/command ability.
