Year   Team       IP   K/9   BB/9   K/BB   HR/9   H/9   RA                  
2006   Tennessee       5.2   10.4   10.4   1.0   0.0   3.5   5.19                  
2007   Tennessee       30.1   9.0   4.8   1.9   0.9   7.8   4.78          

Strengths:
Wiltz is a strike thrower who has one plus pitch (a curve) and several solid ones (a fastball, a changeup and a splitter). He’s got a deceptive delivery; he drops his head not unlike (but less extreme than) Boston Red Sox reliever Hideki Okajima.

Weaknesses:
Wiltz’ ceiling is low. He projects as a middle reliever or long man. His mechanics are a bit strange; he flies open which might lead to arm trouble or a tendency to hang breaking balls. His stats are good but not great. His repetoire is not overwhelming.

The Future:
He could be drafted after the 30th round or not at all.
