    After Vanderbilt's much-heralded trio of shortstop Dansby Swanson and righthanders Carson Fulmer and Walker Buehler, Wiseman is the Commodores' next best prospect. Last year he helped Vanderbilt win its first ever national championship and was named to the College World Series all-tournament team. He then went to Cape Cod, where he was playing well before breaking his arm near the end of the summer. He's returned strong this spring for the Commodores, displaying intriguing athleticism. Wiseman generates good bat speed and he's willing to work a walk, but that comes along with a fair amount of swing-and-miss. His bat speed and strength mean that he has solid power if he can consistently get to it. At his best, he hits line drives to all fields. Wiseman covers ground well in the outfield thanks to his route-running ability and instincts. He's more of a solid average runner, however, which makes him a better fit in a corner, where he has played for Vanderbilt. He's done a better job of tapping into his power this spring and if he's able to continue to do so in the professional ranks, he could shed the tweener tag and fit the corner outfield profile.
