Drafted in the 3rd round (100th overall) by the Colorado Rockies in 2019 (signed for $581,600)
A three-year reliever with UConn, Wallace has improved each year with the Huskies and is having a career-best campaign in 2019. Through his first 35 innings of work, Wallace posted a 0.77 ERA with 53 strikeouts (13.6 per nine) and just eight walks (2.1 per nine). His dominance comes thanks to a plus fastball in the mid-90s that touches 97 mph, a sharp slider that could be a plus offering and more advanced control than the typical college reliever. Strictly a reliever profile, Wallace’s upside in the draft is limited, but he had a terrific summer in the Cape Cod League last year, striking out 25 batters and walking five in 13.2 innings. He could be a quick-mover through a pro system.
