Wide-shouldered, athletic 6-foot-2, 195-pound frame on the mound. Kansas State commit. The right-handed pitcher has a balanced, repeatable delivery that works downhill with intent. Throws from a continuous, clean high-¾ arm action with solid arm speed. Displays a legit three-pitch mix. Fastball sat 93-94 mph spinning at 2455 rpm, pounds the zone for strikes. Throws a true 12/6 curveball at 73-75 mph with tight spin and depth averaging 2469 rpm. Changeup features good fade and sink action in the lower half of the zone, 80-81 mph.

Wentworth, a Kansas State recruit, stole the show in the primetime late night Friday slot that featured draft talent on every field, and 20-plus MLB scouts in attendance. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound right-hander sports lean, defined strength across a wide-shouldered athletic frame, and that athleticism is seen throughout the delivery. Even paced and well-connected throughout the delivery, a controlled, continuous arm stroke leads to quick hand speed through the ball from a high ¾ slot. He pumped in strike after strike with an 88-92 fastball (90.4 mph avg. per Trackman) that he threw to all quadrants, and found success up in the zone thanks to an average RPM of 2398 and max close to 2600. What makes Wentworth so dynamic on the mound is his ability to pair the high-spin fastball with a sharp, tightly-spun 12/6 curveball. He tunnels the pitch exceptionally well at 75-77 with nearly 2700 RPM at its best in this showing. Remaining linear down the mound, Wentworth’s delivery provides for efficient movement patterns with no wasted movement. He was dominant in every facet of the game, striking out 14 over six innings without yielding a walk. The strong summer that the Iowa prep product turned in appears to be something he will continue building on.
Stats: 6.0 innings, 14K-0BB, 4H, 1ER

He also added an 82-83mph changeup that showed fade and sink. Swung the bat well too with a double off the wall and a single. Kansas State commit.
