Phils select consistent Wetzler at No. 151

Ben Wetzler, taken at No. 151, has been a mainstay of Oregon State's rotation for three years and has put together a consistent track record of success in the Pac-12. He succeeds without dominating stuff, but he earns high marks for his command and pitchability.

Wetzler's fastball sits at around 90 mph, with good movement. He also throws a slider and a changeup. He isn't afraid to attack hitters and shows good poise on the mound.

Wetzler missed a few weeks early this season with a back strain and it took him a while to rebuild his strength, but he has looked healthy over the last two months.
