6-foot-5, 205 pound freak athlete and Cincinnati commit is a legit two-way prospect. He ran the fastest home to 1st on the day. In the OF moves aggressively throwing with a head jerk, showcasing a big time arm. At the plate uses an open stance stepping in rhythm swinging with two hands uphill violently. On the mound works quick throwing from a high 3/4 arm angle. Fastball has deception sitting 86-90 mph. Snaps off a swing and miss curve with an 11/5 break 65-68 mph and a straight 69-71 mph change up. Late breaking slider as well 69-71 mph.
Home to 1st: 3.98
Exit Velo: 100 mph
OF Velo: 95 mph

Wiemer is a Cincinnati commit with a projectable 6-foot-4, 208-pound build. He stands tall and open and has good rhythm with an aggressive stride. He showed good bat speed with power potential. His exit velocity was 89 mph and he ran a 7.40 60-yard dash. In the outfield, he stays under control when approaching the ball and works his momentum towards his target with his lower half. His velocity from the outfield was 88 mph. On the mound, he throws from a high-3/4 arm slot and a long, loose arm action. His fastball sat 86-88 mph with downhill action. His curveball sat 66-70 mph with 11/5 break and good depth while occasionally dropping his arm slot. His changeup sat 70-71 mph and had some arm side run while showing downhill action.

2020 DRAFT:The Bearcats outfielder enjoyed a breakout 2019 summer for Harwich, slashing .273/.390/.354 over 34 games and 118 plate appearances, while showcasing an intriguing blend of strength, athleticism and explosiveness. At the plate, Wiemer utilizes tons of motion in his setup, a deep load and exaggerated leg lift before finishing with a lengthy stride and high effort hack. There's lots of violence in the swing to go with an inconsistent launch and variable barrel path, but Wiemer makes it all work via good bat-to-ball ability and physicality. In spite of his wild cuts, the limby outfielder shows some feel for the strike zone and an ability to find his share of walks, adding intrigue to the overall offensive profile. He's a solid defender with long bounding strides and shows good foot speed and arm strength. He rounds out his game with a heady approach on the bases and should swipe his share of bags, going 5-for-6 in stolen base attempts this spring. A fair amount of refinement is still required, but Wiemer has the tools and the talent to make his way into top five round consideration this summer and was off to a strong start with more walks (14) than strikeouts (9) and a .264/.435/.396 slash this spring. A dreamer can squint and see plenty of similarities in style and appearance to a young Hunter Pence.

8/20/19:The Bearcats outfielder has enjoyed a breakout summer for Harwich, slashing .273/.390/.354 over 34 games and 118 plate appearances, while showcasing an intriguing blend of strength, athleticism and explosiveness. At the plate, Wiemer utilizes tons of motion in his setup, a deep load and exaggerated leg lift before finishing with a lengthy stride and high effort hack. There’s lots of violence in the swing to go with an inconsistent launch and variable barrel path, but Wiemer makes it all work via good bat-to-ball ability and physicality. In spite of his wild cuts, the limby outfielder shows some feel for the strike zone and an ability to find his share of walks, adding intrigue to the overall offensive profile. He’s a solid defender with long bounding strides and shows good foot speed and arm strength. He rounds out his game with a heady approach on the bases and should swipe his share of bags. A fair amount of refinement is still required, but Wiemer has the tools and the talent to make his way into early Day 2 consideration next spring and perhaps higher if everything clicks. A dreamer can squint and see plenty of similarities in style and appearance to a young Hunter Pence. (Faleris)
