Wilson rarely wows with his stuff but has performed everywhere he has been. He led Pepperdine in innings as a freshman, posted a 0.63 ERA as a sophomore and shined in the Cape Cod League the following summer with a 0.90 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 20.2 innings. He went posted a 3.61 ERA as the Waves' Friday starter as a junior. Wilson relies on deception for success, with a crossfire delivery that makes it difficult for hitters to pick the ball up out of his hand. His fastball sits just 84-85 mph and he throws a loopy, slurvy breaking ball in the mid-70s. He has been up to 89 mph in short bursts. Most evaluators believe Wilson's lack of stuff and just average command will cause him to struggle against better hitters, but his strong career splits against lefthanders give him a chance to emerge as a lefty specialist.
