Kenny Wise Looks to Continue Growth This Season

Dan Sanchez is the latest author here at Orioles Nation. He's freelance baseball writer and blogger currently residing in Richmond, Virginia. He focuses specifically on the balance between statistical analysis and traditional scouting. You can find more of his musings on Major and Minor League baseball at Tenth Inning Baseball.

His debut piece is a feature on O's pitching prospect Kenny Wise. Dan spent a week in Sarasota for ST and spoke with Wise at the Buck O'Neil Complex. Enjoy!


SARASOTA, Fla. — Every minor league spring training camp is filled with players trying to get noticed – mostly lanky young men attempting to convince scouts and evaluators of what they might one day become.

At 6’6″, 225 pounds, however, it’s difficult not to catch some attention. An imposing physical specimen, Orioles pitching prospect Ken Wise tends to stand out among his peers. The right-hander uses his massive frame to generate an impressive fastball/slider combination. Size and speed, however, were not always the pitcher’s forte.
