    Weatherly had a loose quick arm with a projectably frame out of high school in Michigan, and in three years with Clemson he’s filled out, added strength and significantly improved his breaking ball. As a freshman, Weatherly was a two-way player for the Tigers, before he transitioned into a pitcher-only role in 2019. The transition helped him become one of the team’s most reliable arms out of the bullpen. He took over the Friday night role to start his junior season in 2020, posting a 0.79 ERA over four starts and 22.2 innings, with 43 strikeouts and 14 walks. Now standing 6-foot-4, 205 pounds, Weatherly has loud stuff from the left side with two plus pitches. His fastball sits in the 92-94 mph range and he can run it up to 95-96 regularly and his slider is also a 60-grade offering. He throws a changeup as well, but it’s a distant third pitch. There are reliever questions with Weatherly since most of his time with Clemson was spent in that role, and he’s always walked a significant number of batters. Through four starts in 2020 his walk per nine rate was 5.56, which is actually a career best after walking more than 7.5 per nine in each of his first two seasons. Weatherly is a solid athlete, so teams think there’s a chance he could improve his control moving forward and secure a starting role. If not, his stuff is loud enough from the left side that he could carve out a career as an arm out of the pen as well.
