Gavin Wicks is a 2008 OF/P with a 6'0'', 160 lb. frame from Decorah, Iowa, who attends Decorah High School. Wicks has a lean and athletic build with some projectability. He also has good speed in the sixty (7.05) and he shows instincts on the bases. Defensively he has solid carry on his throws from the outfield at 80 mph. He also moves well defensively with range. At the plate he is a left handed hitter who hits from an average base with a crouched stance. Wicks keeps his weight back well getting some leverage at contact. He likes the ball on the inner half and pulls the ball. He shows bat speed through the hitting zone, but he has an inconsistent bat path that causes him to not center the ball consistently. There is upside to his game, and he is a good student as well.

Gavin Wicks is a 2008 LHP/OF with a 5'11'', 160 lb. frame from Decorah IA, who attends Decorah HS. He has a young build on medium frame. We understand that Wicks is coming off Tommy John surgery 15 months previously and has had limited time on the mound since then. Wicks has unconventional pitching mechanics, with a long, extended arm stroke in back, a hard front leg on landing and some prounounced fall off to the third base side on relief. You can see the looseness in Wick's arm but his mechanics are getting in the way right now. His fastball was in the 71-74 mph range and he threw a 64 mph curveball and 65 mph change up. His arm strength is undoubtedly still developing since his layoff. Wick's curveball flashed good spin at times. Wicks also played some outfield and showed some promise with the bat. He has very good swing fundmentals, with a quick line drive swing and good extension through the ball. Wicks lacks the present strength to really drive the ball now but he has the base to improve quickly as he gets stronger. Wicks is a very good student.
