The Atlanta Braves Select…Joey Wentz

With the 40th overall pick, the Atlanta Braves selected, left-handed pitcher Joey Wentz, who is out of Shawnee Mission East High School(KS). Though committed to the University of Virginia, Wentz is expected to sign with the Braves.

 

Listed at 6’5, Wentz is yet another lefty with a power arm. Wentz’s changes speed with his fastball very well, as his fastball sits in 89-95 MPH range. Though listed as a pitcher Wentz can also swing a hot bat as well. On the MLB Network coverage, former Braves great John Smoltz gave Wentz an impressive Cole Hamels comparison.
