Jordan Wideman is a 2007 C/3B with a 5'11'', 205 lb. frame from Mississauga ON, who attends Streetsville SS. He has a strong, mature build and compact actions. Wideman came directly to the showcase from Cuba, where he was playing with the Canadian National Junior Team. He's a polished player with advanced skills, especially on defense. Wideman has quick actions behind the plate and receives the ball smoothly. He threw 78 mph and had a best workout pop time of 1.92 and a best game throw of 2.04. His throws are very accurate and consistent. Wideman hits from a closed, balanced stance and has a short one piece swing. His bat stays on plane with the ball a long time and he squares up on the ball consistently. Wideman picked up a couple of hits when he didn't make solid contact but he was on the ball and muscled it into the outfield. He'll pick up some gap to gap extra base hits with his strength. Although Wideman is just a fair runner, he showed plus baserunning instincts and took a couple of extra bases that less experienced and aware players might not have. Wideman is a solid catching prospect who has performed at a high level. He is also a good student.

Jordan Wideman is a 5-11, 190 lb junior catcher from Canada with good present strength. He is strong and mature for his age. Wideman is advanced defensively in his skills and tools. He has very good arm strength at 77 mph and makes accurate, on line throws without rushing himself. His game throws are just as good as his workout throws and he throws runners out. His best workout pop time was 2.00 but he's effectively better than that because of his accuracy. At the plate, Wideman has the strength to drive the ball h ard and reach the gaps. He tends to drag his hands and be long to the ball, which gives him his best power to right center field, but he has the hand strength to turn on the ball hard when he stays short. He makes consistent hard contact and shows bat head skills and will continue to improve when he learns to stay short to the ball. Wideman does all the things you want to see a young catcher to do and is a solid follow.
