Follow the Prospects: Rhett Wiseman, OF
« Topic Start: August 04, 2017, 12:46:21 PM »
Age: 23 (June 22, 1994)
Birthplace: Boston, MA
Bats/Throws: L/R Ht: 6' 0" Wt: 200
Draft: Round 3 (2015, WSH)
School: Vanderbilt


Washington’s 3rd round pick, 103rd overall last June, Wiseman had an impressive 3-year career at Vanderbilt, helping them win the College World Series. The left-handed hitting Wiseman has legitimate bat speed and the ability to draw a walk, yet struggles with strikeouts. If he can trim the whiffs as a professional, he could develop into a “50 hit / 45-50 power” type hitter.

Defensively Wiseman uses his solid-average speed and average arm to play all three outfield positions, though he fits best as a corner outfielder, preferably in left field. Wiseman has a high floor as a prospect with a good chance to reach the majors – his ability to make contact will decide if his role is as a backup or a league-average starter.

Currently at High-A Potomac: .225 / .273 / .383 in 96 games, .324 over his last 27 ABs
