Through The Fence Baseball is pleased to announce that top draft prospect Jonah Wesely is joining our writing staff. Wesely, recently projected to go number 25 in Dan Kirby’s mock draft, is a left-handed starting pitcher from Tracy HS in California. He will be blogging about what it’s like to be a top  prospect as the draft approaches. He’ll write about his ups and downs as he works his way to the pros. We’re excited to have Jonah on the staff.

Here’s what Kirby said about Jonah Wesely:

One of the better southpaws in the draft, Wesely was extremely impressive over the summer, showing the ability to be a future workhorse at the next level. He is a power lefty who uses his strong lower half to get his fastball up to the mid 90s. He also has the makings of a plus curve that sits in the mid 70s. His change-up is developing and he has command of all three. Over 37 innings as a junior, he only allowed six hits, while striking out 79 batters to just 13 walks. He tossed two no-hitters and struck out 17 over seven innings in a game against Bear Creek on May 3, allowing two hits on no walks. He has a lot of projection with a lot of room still to grow. He had 105 strikeouts over 59.2 innings as a sophomore, allowing just 21 hits.

Jonah, interviewed here, would like to start off his posting by saying:

I’m extremely excited about this 2013 baseball season. I’ve always anticipated I was going to have an eventful senior year of baseball but wasn’t expecting anything this big. I come from the small town of Tracy, Calif. The town really got behind me during the summer when I pitched in the PG All-American game, and everyone around here has supported me greatly ever since.

So, my hope is that I can continue that excitement for everyone as my senior season progresses and the MLB draft approaches. I lost over 20 pounds this offseason and I’m much stronger. I feel blessed to have the opportunity ahead of me, and I can’t wait to get on the mound and pitch for the Tracy High Bulldogs.
