With a big frame and a plus fastball, Isler looks the part of a late-inning reliever and should get popped in the first five or six rounds of the draft. He's a 6-foot-5, 239-pounder whose heater ranges from 90-95 mph and often sits at 93-94, with the added benefit of heavy sink. He lives off his sinker, as his 82-84 mph slider is more notable for its velocity than its break. It has the potential to be an average second pitch. Isler has a decent delivery that he generally repeats, though he'll need to sharpen his control and command in pro ball. Injuries pressed him into Cincinnati's rotation at the end of the spring, and while he responded with a 1.61 ERA and averaged seven innings in four regular-season starts, he'll be strictly a bullpen option in pro ball.
