A team drafting Weigel is betting on pure arm strength. Weigel can run his fastball up to 99 mph and even at that velocity it shows above-average life. At his best he works down in the zone and generates ground ball after ground ball. But Weigel's release point comes and goes and there are outings where he simply can't find the strike zone--he hit nine batters in 51 innings to go with the 20 walks. Weigel shows the potential to have an average slider to go with the fastball. He's also throws a curveball that is well below-average. But you have to worry that a pitcher who couldn't earn the closer job at Houston will struggle to earn a significant role in pro ball either.
