Wrenn seemed primed to have a breakout junior season, particularly after he hit five homers in the Cape Cod League last summer while playing for Yarmouth-Dennis. Wrenn, who was a 26th-rounder out of high school, instead had a down junior season for a Georgia team that faltered and finished below .500. Wrenn's swing is geared more for contact than power, yet his strikeout rate jumped over 20 percent (22 percent), and his production fell off, causing the Bulldogs to drop him in the lineup. Wrenn still is a plus runner, though he may be a step slower than he was in high school, and he's a strong defensive center fielder with good athleticism and solid arm strength. He profiles as a fourth outfielder, but his draft stock took a hit this spring.
