(#30) Alex Wells, LHP
A 2018 Futures Game selection for the World Team, the Australian lefty posted absurd walk numbers in 2017 and was named the organization’s Pitcher of the Year. He was hit harder last season in High-A, exposing what grades as below-average stuff across the board—albeit with 60-grade control. Wells has excellent feel and knows how to get outs, but his stuff is just too short to realistically fit a true back-rotation profile. Double-A is always a good test for this type of prospect, and Wells is on pace to start 2019 in the Eastern League. He profiles as a longman or mopup option at the big league level.

Have to like the year-to-year progression.
Obviously walks have increased vs the absurdity he posted in the Sally League 2 years ago, but not bad by any means. Still getting some k's, less than a hit per ip. Clearly has an understanding of what he's trying to do. Seems like a guy with high pitchability.
