    Righthander Matt Wisler stands out as easily the best high school prospect in Ohio, but scouts don't think they can sign him away from Ohio State. The 6-foot-3, 175-pounder flashed a low-90s fastball on the showcase circuit last summer, but more often pitched at 86-88 mph for much of the spring before a strong finish. He also has shown a promising curveball and slider in the past, but both breaking pitches regressed in the early going. If he adds strength and consistency, he could be an early-round pick in 2014.
