Thank you to the @Mets for this opportunity! This is a dream come true! I'm ready to go!
Tanous said they heavily scouted the lefty and he’s a hard thrower who throws strikes. He has size — 6-foot-3 and athleticism and plus control with a deceptive delivery. Tanous added he’s an excellent competitor. -

Been watching Max Wotell for a few years now. Lots of funk and deception, touches the low 90s, 88-91, curveball can be a weapon. Starter for now but has to clean up delivery. Still very young.

#Mets third-round pick Max Wotell oozes projection but he'll touch the low 90s, and he'll show a solid-average breaking ball.

BASEBALL AMERICA - #144 - Wotell has exceptional projection. He’s 6-foot-3 with a wiry frame and loose arm, and already has the ability to run his fastball up to 93. The lefthander has an unconventional delivery, with his back foot sliding across the rubber to the third base side as he loads his hips. Still, Wotell has a well-coordinated lower half and maintains balance very well, leading some scouts to believe he will be able to develop a repeatable delivery with refinement. Wotell has a live arm action with a wrap in the back and power through a low three-quarters slot. His breaking ball has tight spin and projects as at least an average pitch for him, and he has shown some feel for a changeup. Committed to Arizona, Wotell has an exciting mix of athleticism and potential for three pitches, and his present stuff could allow him to slide right into the rotation for the Wildcats, should a team not be able to meet his asking price.
