Scouting Report

Listed at 6-foot-5, 220 pounds, Wallner, the 2017 Freshman of the Year, has impressive physical tools and makes the most of them. He has plus raw power but will have to become more consistent at the plate to get the most out of it. He this summer struck out in more than 25 percent of his plate appearances on the Cape and will need to cut down on his swing and miss. Wallner has above-average speed and a plus arm and looks the part of a prototypical right fielder. He also has pitched for Southern Miss, and his arm strength plays well on the mound, where he runs his fastball into the mid-90s and mixes in a slider. He’s expected this spring to pitch more but his future is still likely as an outfielder.
