2/2/12: Weickel’s first Perfect Game showcase (although he had already played in many WWBA/BCS events with the Orlando Scorpions) was the Junior National at Tropicana Field in 2010. He was a skinny 6-5/180 primary outfielder whose most impressive tool as a position player was his 6.78 speed in the 60, notable for a colt that size and an early sign of Weickel’s deceptively good athleticism. Of course, Weickel also took the mound as a secondary pitcher at that event and threw up to 93 mph with many of the signature skills that he would develop over the next 18 months. From that point onward it was obvious that Weickel was a primary pitcher. The 2012 high school class is loaded with power arms but there are few of the classic “projection” pitchers of the Roy Halliday, Chris Carpenter, Adam Wainright type. Those three notables were all tall, loose and lanky high school pitchers who hadn’t filled out yet but still had pretty solid present stuff. All three were picked in the first round (17th, 15th and 29th, respectively) out of high school and have matured into three of the top pitchers in the game. That’s where Weickel, now 6-6/205 but still long and lean, fits into both the big picture as a prospect and into the 2012 draft, although there is a definite chance he could be picked before Carpenter’s 15th spot in 1993 draft with a solid spring. Many of Weickel’s defining appearances in front of scouts have taken place at showcase events such as the Perfect Game National, the PG All-American Classic and the East Coast Pro Showcase when he’s had a chance to pitch next to fellow southeast top prospects such as Lance McCullers, Carson Fulmer, Lucas Sims, Clate Schmidt and Duane Underwood. All of those 6-1/6-2 right handers throw harder than Weickel and also have a sharper breaking ball. But none have the pitchability, command or projectability that Weickel shows and shows on a very consistent basis. And it’s not as if Weickel is a soft tosser. He tops out at 94 mph virtually every time he takes the mound and generally pitches at 91-92. His fastball has great plane coming from a high three-quarters release point and Weickel’s tall delivery, and he does an outstanding job of throwing to the bottom of the strike zone and can throw to both corners at will. There isn’t much effort involved in a 92 mph Weickel fastball at the knees, either. Scouts also look at Weickel’s looseness and build and have hope that he can add more velocity without adding effort. The big key as to whether Weickel can get into the top half of the first round will be his breaking ball this spring. His curveball has proper shape and good spin and Weickel spots it down in the zone the same way he does his other pitches. But at 72-74 mph it is 20 mph slower than his regular fastball, which is too much of a differential for upper level hitters. Weickel has been working on his curveball this winter according to his Scorpions coaches and scouts could see a very different breaking ball this spring. Weickel’s third pitch, his 80 mph change up, is often overlooked but it is a quality pitch that he throws with proper arm speed and release point and could develop into a plus pitch for him as a professional with more consistent movement.

Walker Weickel is a 2012 RHP/OF with a 6-6 205 lb. frame from Orlando, FL who attends Olympia HS. Extra long arms and legs, very projectable build. Full arm circle, high 3/4's to over the top release, ++ downhill angle to the plate, low effort delivery and release, repeats well. Fastball 91-94 mph, straight but oustanding plane, works fastball to both corners and stays low in the zone, very steady velocity, very difficult pitch to lift. Tends to slow arm on curveball, flashes 12/6 downer spin at times, still developing feel for change up. Advanced ability to pitch with fastball, development of an effective off speed will be key. Excellent overall athlete, ran 6.59 with easy strides, shows some lift and pull power at the plate, short compact swing for size. The definition of projectable and already throws 94 mph. Excellent student, verbal commitment to Miami. Named to the Perfect Game All American Classic team.
