6.3.16:  Mechanics are the same as in March. Fastball sat 79-82, touching 83 with late run. Threw a big sharp curveball that was 62-64 and a tight, late slider that was 73-75. Both had 2/8 break. Commanded all three pitches well and showed a high level of pitchability.
3.21.16:  Wagner is a lanky, athletic lefty that throws from a three-quarters arm slot with a drop and drive delivery. He has a shorter arm action, generating velocity with some effort. His shoulders are closed and slightly uphill as he strides out to a closed landing, creating a crossfire delivery. Wagner’s fastball had slight late run to it, touching 82 while working 78-80. His changeup had good armspeed with fading action, running 68. He threw his 1/7 breaking ball at two speeds, a big, loopy one at 62-66 and a hard one at 72. He fields his position well and has a good pickoff move to first.
3.26.15:  Wagner has an athletic frame and throws from the left side on the mound. He has a smooth drop and drive delivery and throws from a low three-quarters slot. He has a short, free arm action and a quick armstroke that generates easy velocity. His shoulders are level and closed and he lands a bit closed, leading to a crossfire delivery and he comes to an athletic finish. This finish allows him to field his position well as he jumps off the mound quickly to make plays. Wagner worked in the 79-81 range, touching 82 with heavy armside run on his fastball. He threw a sharp 11/5 breaking curveball that ran 66-67 and a 70 mph fading change-up that was thrown with full armspeed. He had outstanding command of all three pitches. At the plate, Wagner has a smooth stroke with quick hands and decent batspeed that generates line drives with gap power potential.

2.22.15 Hit from an open and athletic stance.  Loaded back. Leg kick stride that maintained line and balance.  Lower half stayed engaged to the baseball.  Good hands.  Exit Velocity of 83 mph.  Great approach with fluid rhythm during the round.  Line drive stroke with gap-to-gap power.  From the Outfield, he threw from a high ¾ arm slot.  Throws had some accuracy and carry.  Had a Positional Velocity of 80 mph.  Displayed soft hands and clean exchanges.  Footwork was fluid and played through the ball.
