    After his sophomore season, most scouts would have expected that hitting would have been Wright’s path to pro ball, as a two-way player for Bryant with developing power and impressive defensive work around the bag at first base. However, Wright struck out 21 batters and walked just five in 11.2 innings in the Cape Cod League last summer, posting a 2.31 ERA in the process. He’s done more of the same this spring in his junior year, striking out 60 batters in just 31 innings (17.2 per nine) with a 2.59 ERA. Wright only throws an 87-92 mph fastball, but the pitch consistently gets swings and misses thanks to an exceptional spin rate. Wright has a fringey breaking ball and a simple delivery from the stretch that doesn’t seem to add much deception, but he’s always gotten plenty of whiffs. Wright has developing power in his lefthanded bat, but his upside now appears higher on the mound.
