Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Slider: 50 | Curveball: 50 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 45 | Overall: 45

Weigel bounced around to three different colleges as an amateur and after a solid junior season pitching in relief at the University of Houston, the Braves made him their seventh-round pick in 2015. Given a chance to start, the big right-hander had reached Triple-A and was just about knocking on the big league door when he needed Tommy John surgery. He did return at the very end of the summer in 2018 and participated in instructional league play, then shook off the rust to pitch his way back to Triple-A in 2019 and got called up to Atlanta for the first time in July, though he didn't appear in a game during his first stint in the big leagues.

Weigel pitches at 93-94 mph as a starter but showed the ability to get 97-98 mph on occasion, and could pitch there consistently in shorter stints should the Braves ever put him back in the bullpen. He does have two distinct breaking balls, and he'll go back and forth depending on which one he has a better feel for. It might behoove him to focus on one, with the slider the leading candidate, if he returns to relieving. His changeup does give him an option against left-handed hitters.

Now healthy, Weigel is once again ready to impact the big league staff. He could serve as a back end starter, but it might be exciting to see how his already-good stuff plays up as a short reliever.
