MDD is interesting though. Did he always show this much power? I honestly can't recall. I'd be interested to see how he projects to playing CF in the future. I literally have no idea what his defense is like. Does anyone have a scouting report on that?
He's most likely a 4th OF. But yes, his glove is really, really good.
Scouts following the Mets farm system are raving about Wheeler, a right-hander who just turned 21 on Wednesday and is said to have stuff that reminds them of Justin Verlander and Stephen Strasburg.
"I haven't seen [Orioles super-prospect Dylan] Bundy yet, but this guy is the best minor-league pitcher I've seen this year," said one rival scout who watched Wheeler pitch for Double-A Binghamton on Thursday night. "He just blew me away. One of the best I've ever seen."
The scout said that Wheeler touched 100 mph on the radar gun, and pitched at 96-97 mph.
"And with no effort," he said. "And late life on the fastball. And with a knee-buckling curve, and a good changeup. He was overpowering. [Reading] is a pretty good team, but it was like a man vs. boys."
