Waddell was a key part of Virginia's deep run at Omaha as a sophomore, and had high expectations in 2015. His stuff came and went from start to start, though he did show flashes of excellence. At his best, Waddell works off his potential average fastball and late-moving cutter. He's able to get his heater up to 92, though he pitches more in the upper 80s. Waddell's curveball also shows potential at times, with above-average depth and 11-to-5 shape, though he has a habit of breaking the pitch off early, an issue he will have to correct before the pitch is ready to use against Major Leaguers. Waddell's stuff is generally pretty vanilla, and some project him as more of middle innings reliever, though the deception in his delivery leads some scouts to believe that he may be able to sharpen his stuff up enough to pitch as a no. 5 starter.
