Wiberg is a 5-foot-10, 186 pound right-handed hitting two-way prospect. He hits out of an athletic stance, with the hands relaxed off the back shoulder. He uses a knee slide to stack the weight over the back side before whipping the bat-head into the zone on a slightly uphill path. He showed juice to the pull side and produced an exit velocity of 88 MPH. He finishes through contact, remaining balanced.

Defensively, Wiberg showed a strong arm from the outfield with a velocity of 87 MPH. The footwork is athletic, his arm-swing is loose and he creates a direct line with the target. He finishes through the play, maintaining that good line through the play.

On the mound, Wiberg works primarily out of the stretch. He gets balanced at the top and separates into a high, fluid arm swing. As he heads down the mound, he creates a direct line with home plate. The fastball sits 80-82 MPH with downward tilt. The slider was a hard pitch at 72-74 MPH with tight spin. He also mixed in a change-up at 72-74 MPH with similar action to his fastball.
