Joe Wilson Report

Joe Wilson, LHP, Cincinnati Reds
Drafted 385th (13th Rd), 2003 Draft, University of Maryland-Baltimore County
Bats L/Throws L
22 YO, 6'3", 190 lbs

He gets good reviews for his fastball, but he's wildly inconsistent and behind his age group. He was traded midseason in the Cory Lidle deal after being originally drafted by the Phillies. Splitting the season between the two systems, he started the season with a 3.64 ERA in 94 innings at Lakewood of the Florida State League with 89 strikeouts, but unfortunately gave out 49 walks in the process. After the trade, he posted a 9.30 ERA with 12 K's and 7 walks in 20 1/3 innings for Dayton of the Midwest League.

He's no premium prospect, but he's a name worth keeping in the back of your head in case he gets his breaking stuff straitened out (poor choice of words, but you know where I'm going).

ETA: 2007/2008
1 1/2 Stars
