One of the nation's most effective relievers, Wendelken had allowed just one earned run in 44 innings, a 0.20 ERA. The 6-foot-1, 230-pound freshman has a short arm stroke and throws with lots of effort, but he repeats his delivery and attacks hitters with a 90-93 mph fastball. His short arm stroke gives him some deception, and at times he touches 94 mph.
