Wyatt isn't a pop-up guy per se, but he emerged as the top player in the Inland Empire region of California as his velocity jumped this spring, a development he first showed at a Baseball Factory preseason showcase. He touched 93 mph there, even with a short-striding delivery and lack of extension out front. A San Diego State recruit, Wyatt has some athleticism in a listed 6-foot-1, 195-pound frame and has gained strength via a rigorous fitness regime. While his delivery has some stiffness to it, he's come out this spring touching 95 mph regularly and at times sitting comfortably in the 90-95 mph range. His breaking ball is below-average in the low-70s, but he has flashed a changeup with above-average potential, with some arm-side movement and the ability to locate it. Wyatt was banged up his junior season but has had a healthy, productive spring that has allowed him to move up draft boards.
