Player Outlook
Brock Wilken is a physically imposing 6-foot-4, 225-pound third baseman with the potential for 70-grade power. There were significant hit tool concerns coming into his junior year at Wake Forest, but Wilken cut his strikeout rate from 24.2 percent as a sophomore to 17.4 percent as a junior while also upping his walk rate from 11.6 percent to 21.6 percent. He took advantage of the Demon Deacons' hitter-friendly home park and slashed an absurd .357/.516/.835 with 31 home runs in 64 games during his final year. Given his size and below-average speed, Wilken could end up lacking the agility to play third base at the highest level, but if he makes enough contact, his bat should profile at the bottom of the defensive spectrum. He hits right-handed and is several months younger than most of the other top college hitters in the class. Wilken posted a 148 wRC+ and 21.3 percent strikeout rate in 34 games at High-A, but he hit .217 with nine strikeouts in six games at Double-A to close the year. A full season split between Double-A and Triple-A seems to be in the cards for the potential middle-of-the-order slugger.

Since returning from the injury list, Wilken has collected a trio of hits, including a double, in eight at-bats over two games. With his facial fractures seemingly healed enough to allow him back in action, Wilken will aim to get some experience at the Double-A level after receiving a brief run with Biloxi late last season.
