Wagemann’s total numbers on the season is 37.2 innings in 6 appearances 5 of them being starts. Wagemann’s one appearance out of the bullpen he threw 1 inning.

Wagemann has an era of 2.97 and a Whip of 1.12 so far this season with 14 strikeouts. Wagemann doesn’t throw nearly at all like Mark Buehrle, but is similar in style. Innings eater with a low Whip to go along with a low amount of K’s.
Wagemann is a kid who deserves a look if he can continue to keep his WHIP low and his ability to go deep into games. If Wagemann can continue to develop a third pitch that is strong and effective he could project to be a 2 inning bullpen pitcher to back of a rotation at an upper level.
