Wilson got scouts' attention by touching 94 mph in workouts last fall. While he hasn't been quite that good this spring, he still showed an average fastball, sitting in the 88-91 mph range and topping out at 93. He is also an outfielder (though strictly a pitcher for pro ball), so scouts think he could add a couple of ticks when he focuses on pitching full-time. He mixes in a slider that could be an average pitch and an occasional curveball, but he will need to learn a changeup. Wilson has a strong frame at 6-foot-1 and 205 pounds, with an athletic delivery and a short, compact arm action, though he does have a little bit of a wrist wrap. With his athleticism, he will get every opportunity to start in pro ball and work on his secondary stuff.
