Pitching in the TX-NM JC All-Star Game this past fall, Wilson showed a very quick arm that produced a 91-96 mph heater with tail and sink. The 6-foot, 205-pound righty has a feel for two distinct breaking balls: a hard 83-86 mph slider with tight rotation and late diving action, and a sharp downer curve at 78-79 that he spins well, imparting late bite. In addition to his potential for developing three plus pitches, Wilson also stands out for his competitive demeanor on the mound.

8/19/18 - Max FB: 86, FB: 81-84, Avg FB: 82.25, CB: 67-71

6-foot-0, 180-pound, RHP showed a FB that allowed him to generate 4 swing and misses on 15 swings (27%).  Medium, athletic frame w/ well-proportioned present strength, projectable.  Has a chance to be an intimidating presence physically.  Pitches from a full wind-up into H ¾ release from the first base side of the rubber.  Quick arm.  Can get stronger with his glove-side, tends to just be along for the ride.  Wind-mill type action with high glove to draw the hitter’s eye, hides the ball.  Angle w/ downhill plane.  FB shows arm-side run w/ occasional sinking life.  Shows occasional short cut at other times.  Tight medium downer CB shows potential.  Struggled to get arm on time to pull the pitch down and create the rotation.  Has a chance to be a put-away pitch when on time.  Around the zone w/ the FB, developing with the CB.  Tools to be a strike-thrower.
