Physical: 6-foot-1, 188LBS. Muscular, athletic build. 6.58SEC 60-yard dash. Primary OF.

Offensively: RHH. Balanced set up. Feet slightly wider than shoulder width, on line towards the middle of the field. Hands begin high and stay high throughout the load. Barrel tilts towards the pitcher which makes the barrel somewhat long to the baseball and tough to get on plane early. With that being said, Wiggs has quality bat speed and some feel for the barrel. Producing a MAX exit velo of 93MPH. 

Defensively: Tons of natural athleticism in the OF. Moves side to side with ease and shows the capability to play CF. Looks to work through the baseball. Arm action is full, strong, and plays well to the OF position. Ball has good carry with a top throwing velocity of 90MPH.

A two-time Future Games attendee suffered a broken fibia and tibia last fall during a football game and is now back around to playing regularly again. The results, a 6.80 60, 85 MPH arm from the OF and 95 exit velo. Physically impressive with raw skills at 6-foot-0 185 pounds. At the plate Wiggs had several tough, grind it out at bats during the games, twice reaching on INF singles in the 4.2 range out of the box. Even setup at the dish with a short stride; accelerates through the zone and showed juice to both gaps during batting practice each day. Defensively the arm continues to improve; footwork into and through the ball could be more aggressive. Continued game experience will only help as the physical tools are there.
