Waggett is the fastest high school player we have seen this year. He ran an electronically timed 6.35 in Ft Myers. For those of you who want to claim he cheated, he came back to run a 6.4 the second time with everyone watching. He was also the fastest runner in Jupiter and at the East Coast Pro in Wilmington. So you can argue the time, but you can’t argue about who is the fastest. Waggett’s other tools are playable but pale by comparison to his running ability. He does flash a fast bat and some power potential, but needs to learn a better approach. He throws OK, but does not stay behind the ball and drags his back leg and hips when throwing. Again with some instruction and some work he could end up with at least a MLB average arm. At any rate he is extremely interesting and athletic. It’s just a matter of whether MLB scouts are going to pull the trigger this spring or watch him develop into a high pick in college.
