9. Joey Wentz

The Braves picked Wentz at 40th overall in the 2016 draft. He struggled with his velocity in his first full pro season as it sat in the low 90’s compared to throwing in the mid 90’s right before he was drafted. This made him focus more on improving his changeup as it became a more reliable and consistent pitch for him. Wentz also throws an above average curveball that results in a lot of strikeouts. He progressed well last year as dominated competition at low-A Rome to the tune of a 2.60 era with 152 strikeouts in 131.2 innings pitched. Look for Wentz to begin the year at high-A Florida with the possibility of him being aggressively pushed to Mississippi early in the season should he find early success at Florida. By midseason he should be on nearly everyone’s top 100 prospect list.
