Wesneski has been a stalwart for Sam Houston State for three seasons. He went an impressive 10-2, 3.93 as a freshman, but he realized he needed to continue to improve. His body and his stuff have improved and it paid off this year in a 8-3, 3.32 season that saw him strikeout 9.4 batters per nine innings. He now touches 94-95 mph although he generally sits 91-93. He’s continued to refine his average slider and has some feel for a fringe-average changeup. As a lower-slot righthander with average stuff, there’s some thought that Wesneski will respond well to an eventual move to the bullpen, where he could get to the upper registers of his velocity range more often. With a fastball that has plenty of movement and a solid slider, he has the makings of a back-end starter or solid reliever.
