Wes continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities on the diamond. He did show in the OF for the first time at the event. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date. At SS, he displays fluid / smooth actions. Feet are active as he moves well laterally and plays with a ton of energy. Glove action is clean but needs to present earlier and more out front. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He needs to work to get behind balls more and play through with momentum to his target. He moves well laterally with range improving as he continues to improve foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows an athletic, open setup. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Lower half works well through the swing with an aggressive hip turn.

Wes is a SS/RHP prospect who will graduate in 2025. Medium frame lean build with some strength present and room to add throughout. On the mound, he has smooth mechanics and keeps the ball down in the zone. He has a simple/repeatable delivery and works with good direction down the mound. Has a loose arm and extends out front. He attacks hitters with his FB that sits 62-64mph with good command, an 11/5 shaped breaking ball, and a developing changeup that has some cutting action in the strike zone. In the infield, has a good prep step, with active footwork, and he shows good lateral range. He works to center the baseball, with hands out front, and ability to pick out hops. He made consistent throws from a high 3/4 arm slot with an arm velocity up to 71mph across diamond. Has athletic actions and showed ability to make plays. A right-handed hitter, he hits from an athletic and square stance. Smooth timing to swing, with a flat barrel path, and a middle of the field approach. Good hip turn enables him to hit balls to all fields with a bat exit velocity up to 74mph during his round of BP. With 4 years of continued growth and development, we foresee Wes having a bright future on the baseball field.
