Wong has excelled over the last two years as Grand Canyon's ace. This spring, the 6-foot-2, 210-pound righthander took advantage of pitching in the Phoenix area during spring training, when many high-ranking executives were easily able to see him pitch. Wong has a heavy fastball that last summer reached 97 mph when he was used out of the bullpen in the Cape Cod League, but typically sits in the low 90s when he starts. His sharp slider is his primary offspeed pitch and the further development of his changeup will be key to his success as a starter. Wong has a repeatable delivery and pounded the zone with his fastball. He hasn't piled up as many strikeouts as some would like to see, but his combination of stuff, size and track record is enough to make him the highest drafted player out of Grand Canyon in 25 years.
