Notes

Comments

8/10/22

MIF Joshua Wicker (Fenwick, 2024) is a heady middle infielder with a feel for the game in all areas. Defensively, he is a steady defender with the ability to make the highlight-reel play, going up the middle of field while playing second base and completing the play with a jump turn and throw that was on the bag for the assist. Wicker also finished the event 1-for-3 with two walks, an RBI, run and also threw two innings, allowing one run.

6/02/19

Wicker is a middle infield prospect who has soft, reliable hands on defense and range, and his athleticism makes it so he’s able to field in rhythm, keeping his throws on target, even while moving to his right or left. At the plate, right-handed, balanced/crouched setup, pre-pitch bat waggle. Loads back, bat stays vertical, leg hang trigger, swing path is long and level through the zone with above-average bat speed and barrel control.
