Wendzel hit .367 to go along with 8 home runs and 42 RBI for the Bears this season. Baseball America says he "has more hitting ability than power, although evaluators believe he has the potential to get to average power eventually." Wendzel is recognized as having a mature approach at the plate and has great pitch recognition. 

"I’ve made some lifelong friends in Texas and I love this state…I feel like I should have been born here I love this place so much."

Wendzel was also asked about being drafted by the same team as Jung. 

"He’s a great player. I think we can both add to any lineup. I think I can play anywhere on the field. Put me anywhere and I’ll hit."
