JJ Wetherholt - Prospect Profile

Carlos Collazo - Baseball America - March 18th: "When he’s been on the field he’s been one of the best—if not the best—pure hitters in the class. It’s hard to get a read on Wetherholt’s draft stock given his lack of playing time, but his profile hasn’t changed."

Joe Doyle - Future Star Series - March 18th: "Wetherholt can really hit with double-plus bat-to-ball skills and a willingness to go gap-to-gap and stay away from the pull-heavy approach that gets so many lefty bats in trouble. The hand speed is exceptional with a barrel that stays through the zone a long time."

MLB.com - March 8th: "Wetherholt might be the best pure hitter in the class and there are some area scouts who think he’s the best amateur bat they’ve ever seen. The left-handed hitter drives the ball to all fields with authority with excellent pitch recognition and elite bat-to-ball skills that resulted in a miniscule 10 percent miss rate in 2023 with the Mountaineers."

Keith Law - The Athletic - March 7th: "Wetherholt has performed exceptionally for the Mountaineers for the last two seasons as a high-contact, low-walk hitter who hits the ball fairly hard and offers a higher floor than almost anyone else in the draft. He's a potential everyday player at second base who hits for average with some power."

Kiley McDaniel - ESPN - February 23rd: "Wetherholt is an above-average runner with an easily plus hit tool and roughly 20 homer upside -- he probably isn't a major league shortstop defensively but should fit fine at second or third base."

Aram Leighton - Just Baseball - February 15th: "A quick and compact strike from the left side, Wetherholt boasts plus plus bat speed and elite bat-to-ball skills. His polish shined through immediately, hitting .308 as a freshman at WVU before blossoming into one of the best hitters in the country in 2023."
