Wainwright got off to a slow start this season after missing last summer and fall with a strained ligament in his pitching arm. He was soon up to 91-93 mph and added an 84 mph slider in addition to hitting a county-record .515. Long and lean at 6-foot-6, he projects well because he already repeats his delivery as well as any pitcher his age and size. His signability (Georgia Tech) is more in doubt.
