Follow the Prospects: Amos Willingham, RHP
« Topic Start: May 10, 2023, 02:14:20 PM »
Dude has earned prospect consideration this season:

https://www.milb.com/player/amos-willingham-686294

Born: 8/21/1998 in Rome, GA
Draft: 2019, Washington Nationals, Round: 17, Overall Pick: 513
College: Georgia Tech

No relation to Josh AFAIK.

Currently assigned to Harrisburg and is the closer. YTD stats:
9 games
4 saves
9.2 IP
13Ks
1BB
0.00 ERA
0.62 WHIP

NatsArmsRace draft report from 2019:

Quote
Round 17: Amos Willingham, RHP starter from Georgia Tech.  No BA scouting report, but he ended the season as the #1/Friday night starter for one of the best collegiate teams in the country this year and pitched for them in the opener of their CWS regional (getting a 6ip 2-run quality start win).   His stat line on the season is poor: 5.19 ERA, but he came on strong at the end.   Some internet research showed that he was a Juco xfer to Georgia Tech, and sometimes suffers from a strength-sapping stomach ailment that may explain some bouts of ineffectiveness.   I wonder if he’s signable, given that he’s at a big-time program, finally started to shine in Ga Tech’s rotation towards the end of the year, and may want another shot at improving upon his ERA as a senior.

gets a note from david laurila in his weekly notes column in fangraphs:

Quote
Amos Willingham is 2-0 with five saves and a 0.00 ERA in 13 appearances between Double-A Harrisburg and Triple-A Rochester. Drafted in the 17th round out of Georgia Tech in 2019 by the Washington Nationals, the 24-year-old right-hander has fanned 17 batters and allowed seven hits and four walks in 14 innings.

Ah...I wondered where he was as I watched Rochester give up a 12 - 0 lead last night. Our old friend, Banda, and Luis Reyes gave up 7 runs in two innings.
