A converted outfielder given his amazing raw arm strength, Weathers has very good natural athleticism from a compact, sturdy frame. Weathers is similar to Oregon State closer Eddie Kunz in that he is somewhat of a one-pitch specialist. His specialty is a very hard fastball that lives in the mid-90s and has reportedly approached triple digits, with many expecting it to surpass that mark. His slider is a potential plus pitch, but he needs to find more consistency with it. That can be expected from a player that has only been pitching for two years now. He was rated the top prospect in the Alaskan League by PG Crosschecker, as all six hits he allowed were singles and was virtually untouchable. He joined TUSA and his Head Coach at Vandy, Tim Corbin, mid-summer to fill a need in the National team's bullpen. Weathers is a senior, and turned down a sizable bonus from the Tigers last summer as a 24th-rounder.
