12/27/2013 - Baseball Factory Winter Classic
Wren has very good skills in all areas of the game and showed a lot of upside. As an infielder he is athletic, has excellent body control, good footwork, quick release and plus arm strength. Wren can improve his positioning at third base and be quicker laterally but he is a very solid defensive infielder. As a pitcher, he showed good projectability, mound presence, and command/velocity. He needs to be more fluid through balance point and get a better load out of the stretch. At the plate, Wren displayed excellent balance, bat speed, and barrel accuracy. He needs to allow the ball to travel deeper, keep hands inside the ball, and keep his bat level through the zone longer. Wren is very respectful and is a hard worker.
07/15/2013 - National Tryout - Plano (DFW), TX
Wren showed well on the mound during his last workout in Plano, TX. He also did a great job improving his footspeed as he ran the 60 in a 7.45. He has a loose / quick arm action, he competes in the zone, and he mixes his 3 pitches in well. At 3B, Wren has fluid footwork, sure hands, and he fields athletically. He moves well to the backhand, his exchange is quick, and he throws with a short / quick arm to his target. Offensively, Wren has an open stance, a short stride, and he lets the ball travel well. He has average bat speed, and stays inside the baseball well.
05/19/2013 - National Tryout - San Antonio, TX
Wren is a young player with a lot of potential. At his most recent Factory outing, he hit 80 MPH as a 13 year old. At 3B, he has good lateral range, and is able to make deep plays with his strong arm. When he begins to develop more glove presentation/soft hands, he could become a remarkable infielder. On the mound, he throws three pitches with his hard slider being his best pitch. He changes speeds well, but needs to simplify his delivery and make it more fluid to have greater consistency around the dish. Offensively, he has a crouched setup and stays inside the ball. He has barrel awareness and generates good bat speed on the high school scale. This rising 8th grader has a lot of potential and could play anywhere he chooses on the field.
03/01/2013 - Yankees Spring Training Experience (Ages 12-14)
Wren is a true gamer, he has a passion for the game and showed excellent focus. He shows the most promise on the mound where he has a smooth delivery with a loose arm action. He showed the ability to throw three pitches for strikes with good control. He will need to work on having a softer front side, which will help him finish chest over knee and towards his target. This will also help him work lower in the zone. Defensively, Wren showed a low fielding position with his hands out in front. He will need to work on shorter actions and quicker feet to improve as an infielder. At the plate, Wren has good power to the pull side and has a good feel for getting his hands back. He will need to work on his overall posture to help with him staying inside the baseball. This should help him use the other side of the field and eventually with power.
01/18/2013 - Arizona National Spring Training (12-14)
Wren continues to show that he is a solid athlete. On the mound, his arm was loose with good control of two pitches. He showed a controlled balance point with on time separation, his tempo was smooth, and he has a complete finish. This time out, Wren showed better use of his legs. He needs to focus on keeping his front side closed landing on the ball of his foot. In the field, Wren is sure handed with an accurate arm using his body to play through the ball. He can focus on gaining ground in his routes making a smoother process from his route to his fielding position. Offensively, Wren shows gap-to-gap power with explosive bat speed. He shows very simple actions with a short swing path and will improve as he learns to stay loose and slow down his rhythm. Wren is a true gamer and has a great feel for the game.
