Fans always hear about the top-drafted prospects every year. But, often, it’s in the middle rounds where drafts can be made into something special. The 2013 draft is turning into quite a good haul for the Angels, and one of the absolute steals of the draft for the Angels was left-hander Jonah Wesely. Taken in the 11th round out of high school in Tracy, CA, Wesely was signed away from a commitment to UCLA.

Wesely throws a low-90s fastball, a wicked slider, and a developing changeup. He is all business on the mound, and pitches with passion. Presently, Wesely is in the pen, where he is dominating, but the potential to revert back to the rotation is there, especially if he refines the changeup. That wouldn’t be unprecedented, as one of his favorite players, C.J. Wilson, made the same transition.

Already a fan of AngelsWin.com, our interview with Wesely was one of the best we’ve had in a while. From his yoga stretches to his hasty candy consumption, Wesely shared some great insights into his life as a professional pitcher. This is a great interview that all Angels fans should enjoy. Jonah has the stuff and the makeup to be pitching in Anaheim, and hopefully in a few years, he will be.

Love to hear what you think!
