Matthew Wolfe: SS/RHP, (2022) Olentangy Orange, OH. Vanderbilt Commit, 6-foot-1, 184-pound. During batting practice, the right-handed hitter had an exit velocity of 91 mph. Begins in a balanced athletic stance with a controlled load, then uses a leg kick. Bat speed was explosive, displayed an upward swing plane and a back foot finish. Advanced in the infield, had a live arm with throws that topped out at 86 mph; showed next level hands, smooth feet, and a fluid exchange. Laterally, movements were athletic and fielded the ball out front. Showed a quick arm action with a high ¾ slot. Established speed as one of his strengths with an efficient 60 time of 6.82. Athletic on the mound, has a high ¾ arm angle with quick arm speed. Slow-tempo type pitcher who shows easy effort.

Body Type: 6-foot-1, 160-pounds. Physical, lean athlete.   
Swing Mechanics: Hits from an open, wider-based stance. Uphill bat path that stays in the zone long with plenty of bat speed.
Hit: Attacks each pitch with intent to do damage. Made solid contact overall producing hard line-drive action with some deeper shots.
Power: 87 mph exit velocity. Saw more strength pull-side and middle of the field with some ball that had carry.
Offensive Projection: Top of the lineup, table-setter.
Field: At shortstop his actions were extremely fluid. Glovework displayed was effortless and showed as one of the best at the event and among the organization. Feet were quick and very efficient as well.
Throw: Got it up to 80 mph across the diamond and on target each time. Solid arm strength for his class that will only progress as he gets stronger.
Defensive Projection: SS.

As it stands, Wolfe is one of the top 3 prospects we’ve come across in the class thus far. Very talented defender with a third baseman frame and short stop hands/athleticism. That combination is usually a recipe for an elite defender. Ball jumps off his bat with gap abilities to both sides of the field. BP will impress but to get a real idea of his abilities you need to see in game, where he shows advanced strike zone knowledge and that ability to find the barrel with authority often when he pulls the trigger.

A two-way prospect that had the most upside of any position player prospect at the event. Wolfe passes the look test with flying colors at 6-foot-1, 160-pounds. A rangy shortstop that really impressed with the glove. A very good athlete that moves well laterally and maintains actions on the move. Makes the routine play consistently and can make the wow play as well. At the plate the right-hander has a run producer skill set. His long levers allow him to really do damage when he gets extended. Will expand the zone more than he should at times but the tools and upside are obvious. On the mound arm is long/very loose and lower half is efficient. Ball jumps out of hand with fastball sitting 76-79 mph. Going to throw really hard someday. Wouldn't be surprised in the least bit if Wolfe is a two-way recruit down the road profiling as a power hitting infielder with big time velo on the bump.

6-foot, 150 pound lanky built right handed pitching prospect was a top performer at the event with a long, loose arm action out of a ¾ slot. Wolfe has a high-energy delivery that produced a 78-80 mph fastball. His curveball had some bite with tight spin at 62-65 mph. Showed solid feel for the changeup that had some run and dive to it at 70-71 mph. High upside arm. Wolfe does a nice job incorporating fluid movements to put him in a strong, balanced position at launch. Flashed an impressive batspeed/strength combination through the zone. High ceiling at the plate as physical maturation takes its course. Also looked the part in the infield. A rangy defender that glove plays in his funnel and on the move. Third baseman frame with shortstop hands/feet. Going to be a good one.

6/28/17

A right-handed hitter that starts in a balanced setup. Uses a double tap for timing and energy. Hands move back rhythmically to launch. Path is downhill with quickness to his bat. Would be aided by leveling out path to let his well above average natural tools show more frequently. Has potential to develop into a middle of the order guy as his frame fills out. In the infield he does a nice job creating angles in his pre fielding footwork. Ball skills are well above average. Actions are athletic and stay on the move. Transfer is smooth and he uses multiple arm angles. A solid young defender. On the mound he has an easy leg kick, that follows with a high ¾ arm slot. He generates a lot whip in his motion with ease. His delivery is effortless and smooth. His tempo is good in between pitches and to batters. He is a good defender as well. He is quick off the mound and covers first on groundballs to 1B. Has an arsenal of pitches for his age and commands all of them well. FB is straight with a little life. CB has an 11/5 break with sharpness to it. SL is 10/4 with good bite across from one side of the plate to the other. CH has some movement to it.

FB: 72-75 mph
CB: 65-66 mph
CH: 64-67 mph
SL: 66-68 mph
60-yard Dash: 7.38
Infield Velocity: 68
Exit Velocity: 82

Very athletic, projectable frame. A righty that has a bright future on the mound. Very mechanically efficient with long, loose arm action. His fastball sat 71-72 mph with all the physical signs of much more velocity to come. Secondary stuff is advanced for his age. Spins two different breaking balls. His 11/5 shaped curveball was very sharp with depth at 62-63 mph. Slider has a tighter shape with late action across the zone at 64-65 mph. His changeup was equally as impressive, maintaining fastball arm speed with late fade to it. Overall very impressive performance on the mound. At the plate he uses a very fluid loading sequence, incorporating a double tap while taking his hands to launch. Bat speed is well above average and he creates solid barrel whip through contact. Swing is efficient and flashed signs of power potential as he matures. In the infield he possesses impressive tools across the board for his age. Actions are smooth and he plays with confidence. Glove skills are there and he has the arm to stay on the left side of the infield.

60-yard dash: 7.49
Infield Velocity: 73
Exit Velocity: 79
