RHP Neil Wagner has raw arm strength and hit 96 mph last summer in the Northwoods League, but scouts didn't see nearly as much velocity this spring. A knee injury last fall may be the culprit. Wagner broke his left kneecap and seemed to favor it when he returned, often releasing pitches before landing on his front foot. He pitched at 88-92 mph, and scouts wondered why a 9-43 team used the player who was far and away its best pitcher in relief. With his mechanics a mess, Wagner had trouble throwing strikes and didn't show much in the way of secondary pitches. He'll still get drafted, but he probably won't get signed unless he shows signs of bouncing back in summer ball.
