Notes

2/22/23

RHP Marcus Wolfe (University of Chicago Laboratory Schools) is another arm who has a feel for the mound and multiple pitches for strikes. Wolfe pumped the zone throughout with four pitches, led by a fastball that topped at 82.6 mph with late run and sink. Wolfe also flipped in a curveball and slider in the mid-60s as well as an upper-60s changeup that he kills spin on.

2/18/23

Positional Profile: RHP/OF
Body: 6-0, 185-pounds. Proportional frame with strength.
Delivery: Fluid delivery, slight drop and drive, balanced finish.
Arm Action: RH. Long draw out of the glove, 3/4 slot.
FB: T83, 82-82 mph. Clean and lively out of the hand, finish through the zone. Showed control. T1755, 1624 average rpm.
CB: 66-68 mph. Elevates slot, more 11/5 shape, late wrinkle. T1389, 1280 average rpm.
SL: 64-68 mph. Thrown with arm speed, horizontal 10/4 shape. T1389, 1263 average rpm.
CH: 66-69 mph. Above-average offering, sells pitch, feel at the bottom of the zone, late fade and sink. T1312, 1181 average rpm. 

2/19/22

Strong-bodied, 6-foot, 190-pound, RHP/OF Marcus Wolfe Jr. (University of Chicago Laboratory Schools, 2025), showed well with the bat and on the mound. On the mound his arm works loose and quick from a ¾ slot, sitting 79-80 mph with an average of 11.5 inches of horizontal movement. His curveball and slider tend to blend into a similar offering but both are thrown with conviction and the ability to land for a strike. The change up plays out of a similar window as the fastball with late fade. Offensively, Wolfe showed a quiet, compact swing with lifted contact to both gaps. He has above-average bat strength for his age as well, recording a 90.4 mph peak exit velocity as well as a max distance off the bat at 322 feet.
