Drafted in the 1st round (5th overall) by the Montreal Expos in 2000 (signed for $2,950,000)
Wayne is viewed as a clone of Mike Mussina, also a Stanford product. He is a polished college pitcher who should get to the big leagues as quickly as anyone in the draft. Though he did not pitch as well late as he did early, his pitching acumen should translate quickly in the pro game, and he could easily start in Double-A. Wayne dominated the Pac-10 this year, leading the conference in wins and strikeouts and ranking second in ERA. He's an innings-eater who's intelligent and has excellent makeup. He throws four pitches for strikes. The biggest knock on Wayne is that he doesn't have a go-to pitch, though he has an excellent changeup. His fastball is fringe average, occasionally touching 90-91 mph, but mostly sitting at 88.
