    View Draft Report
    Weems pitched his junior and senior seasons at the University of Arizona after starting his college career at Yavapai College. There’s nothing in his Wildcats career that suggests he’s a candidate to be drafted except for the fact that he’s left-handed and can be an inexpensive senior sign. He’s a pitchability southpaw who throws strikes, with a low-90s fastball that touched 94 this year. He complements the fastball with an average curveball and an infrequently used changeup that comes in straight. Weems’ 2019 season was marred by inconsistency, with a final ERA of 7.15 and issues in making accurate throws to first base.
