Wotell has exceptional projection. He's 6-foot-3 with a wiry frame and loose arm, and already has the ability to run his fastball up to 93. The lefthander has an unconventional delivery, with his back foot sliding across the rubber to the third base side as he loads his hips. Still, Wotell has a well-coordinated lower half and maintains balance very well, leading some scouts to believe he will be able to develop a repeatable delivery with refinement. Wotell has a live arm action with a wrap in the back and power through a low three-quarters slot. His breaking ball has tight spin and projects as at least an average pitch for him, and he has shown some feel for a changeup. Committed to Arizona, Wotell has an exciting mix of athleticism and potential for three pitches, and his present stuff could allow him to slide right into the rotation for the Wildcats, should a team not be able to meet his asking price.
