Wyatt Pennington

Pennington is one of the hottest uncommitted names in the junior class right now and I was able to get eyes on him in a start versus Noblesville. A body control athlete, standing at 6-foot-1, 175 pounds, he is an excellent mover within a well-sequenced delivery. The arm works quickly, to multiple slots, and he shows a varied arsenal of pitches. Pennington worked his best four seam fastball up to 90 mph (twice) in my look, settling at 85-88. He shows present feel for a low-80s change, his go-to off speed at the moment, and he threw it with confidence to both right-handed and left-handed hitters alike. Pennington also showed a low-70s curveball from his higher slot, a pitch that flashes bite with bigger shape. The uncommitted right-hander mixed with a sidearm slot, pitching with a low-to-mid 80s, sinking fastball, and a low-70s sweeper from there. The mix of present stuff, to go along with an uber-athletic operation, creates an exciting prospect. He shows more control than command at this point, profiling best in the bullpen, and he has the competitive nature to take the ball in big spots.
