  • Position Projection

07/31/2019 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Wilken is an athletic and talented 2021 2-way prospect that worked hard all week. In the OF, Wilken is on time with his prep step, he works behind the ball, and has a quick first step to the ball. He works behind the ball and makes accurate throws to the bases. At the plate, Wilken starts in a wide stance and gets his front foot down on time. He has a gap to gap approach and stays back on the ball. He needs to continue to create backside drive with his lower half and keep the barrel inside the ball. On the bump, Wilken gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and works down hill. He attacks the bottom part of the zone with his fastball and has some feel for the changeup. He has good direction but he needs to continue to have a strong front side and ride his back leg toward the plate. Wilken will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

02/17/2019 - College PREP - Lake Zurich (Chicago), IL Wilken is a tall OF/RHP prospect who will graduate in 2021. In the field, Wilken shows good range and makes the routine plays. Getting into a more atheltic fielding position can help Wilken improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and takes a short stride. He is fluid getting into his load and hits against a strong front side. He takes a direct swing with fast bat speed, leading to loud contact and line drives. Wilken can improve defensively by consistently staying compact in his swing. On the mound, Wilken gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a loose arm and extends through his release, staying inline towards the plate. Wilken shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 75mph with arm side run. Breaking ball sits from 58-62mph with 11-5 break. Changeup sits from 69-70mph with arm side run as he throws with deceptive arm speed. Wilken can improve as a pitcher by long tossing to build up his arm strength. With two more years to develop, Wilken has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
