2016 Mets draft profile: OF Jeremy Wolf

New, comments

With their 32nd selection in the 2016 draft (Round 31, Pick 940), the Mets selected Jeremy Wolf, an outfielder from Arizona.

Name: Jeremy Wolf
Born: Scottsdale, Arizona
Age: 22 (11/2/1993)
Height/Weight: 6'3"/220 lbs
Position: OF
Bats/Throws: L/R
School: Trinity University (San Antonio, Texas)

A graduate of Chaparral High School in his native Scottsdale, Jeremy Wolf would go on to attend Trinity University. A member of the baseball team for all four years that he attended the university, Wolf hit a combined .367/.455/.577 in 189 games. In 2016, the number-one-seeded Trinity Tigers not only set a school record for victories in a season with 44, but won the NCAA Division III baseball championship—a feat they had fallen just a game short of doing in 2015—and Wolf was a big reason why. In his final season before graduation, the outfielder had the best season of his collegiate career, hitting .408/.508/.741. He was elected to the All-America First Teams of the American Baseball Coaches Association, named West Region Player of the Year, and Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Year, among other awards and honorary distinctions.

Arguably, Jeremy Wolf was the best hitter in all of Division III baseball in 2016. Former coaches describe him as a "professional hitter." He has excellent bat speed, allowing him to square the ball and hit it to all fields. His swing is smooth and level, suited for spraying line drives. He stands slightly open at the plate, but after lifting his leg in a kick during his swing, closes his stance. This gives him power to the opposite field. In the outfield, Wolf has a strong and accurate arm that profiles well in right field.

Wolf has signed with the Mets and is playing with Kingsport in the Appalachian League.
