JJ Wetherholt - Prospect Profile

Jonathan Mayo - MLB.com - July 18th: "Wetherholt won the Division I batting title by hitting .449 as a sophomore in 2023. He also slugged .787, with 16 homers and 24 doubles, while striking out in just 8.2 percent of his plate appearances."

Tyler Jennings - Prospects Live - July 13th: "Wetherholt’s bat is one of the best in the country. It’s a short, compact swing that does plenty of damage to anything in the zone and the approach is pretty advanced already. He doesn’t get pull-happy and he’ll abuse the opposite field gap when he needs to, while also showing off very good juice to the pull side."

Joe Doyle - Future Star Series - July 12th: "Wetherholt was arguably the most compete hitter in 2023 featuring a contact rate near 90 percent, absolutely abusing anything and everything in the strikezone. His average exit velocity also ranked among the elite in college baseball this season despite only clocking in at 5-foot-11, 190 pounds."

Joe Doyle - Future Star Series - April 20th: "Wetherholt, a thick, strong-bodied infielder, has positional versatility, though most consider him a third baseman in the long-term. He doesn’t necessarily have a throwing arm that is an asset, but he’s sure-handed and can handle the route expectations of the hot corner."
