Position: LHP
Team: Kansas St.

Jordan Wicks - Prospect Profile

Carlos Collazo - Baseball America - June 18: "The solidly-built, 6-foot-3, 220-pound southpaw has been up to 95 mph in all of his outings this year for the Wildcats, regularly sitting 92-93 with run, cut, and ride to his fastball that allows for incredible deception and disappearing action. His low-80s changeup is his most lethal weapon, and the Arkansas native relies on the plus-plus offering as much as any guy with a 70-grade secondary would."

MLB - June: "Wicks has the best changeup in the Draft, a low-80s weapon with tumble and depth that he sells with deceptive arm speed, earning plus-plus grades from some evaluators. He sets it up with a fastball that has added about 5 mph since high school, now sitting at 90-93 mph and hitting 95 with high spin rates that give it riding action."

Prospects Live - May 31: "It might just be the best changeup in the class. Coming from the left side, Wicks has a 3/4 arm slot that pumps 89-92, touching 94. The changeup seems to hit a brick wall in front of the plate, tumbling heavy arm-side."

Prospects Live - Mar. 18: "Wicks has some of the best command in the class, and arguably the best changeup in amateur baseball."

Michael Dault - Through The Fence Baseball - Mar. 13th: "Wicks is among the best of them. His stats are gaudy, sure, but he’s got some real stuff that seems to be developing each time he steps on the bump."

Kiley McDaniel - ESPN - Feb. 26th: "Wicks has a solid average fastball into the mid-90s, a plus changeup and starter command."

R.J. Anderson - CBS Sports - Feb. 15th: "Sometimes there's a thin line between a compliment and an insult. Wicks' profile inspires a lot of those jump-ball comments. His delivery is so vanilla that it would be named "Generic 3" in The Show."

Carlos Collazo - Baseball America - Jan. 26th: "Additionally, scouts have commented that both his slider and curveball are more fringy offerings, so sharpening one—or both—of those pitches to give him a reliable weapon vs. lefthanded hitters would also help. Like every college arm on this list, starting for a full season to make up for lost time in 2020 is a must."
