Drafted in the 5th round (157th overall) by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2009 (signed for $130,000)
J.T. Wise switched schools (Louisiana State to Okahoma) and positions (third base to catcher) as a junior in 2008 and went undrafted. That won't happen again after he won Big 12 Conference player of the year honors this spring, when he batted .359 with 17 homers and threw out 52 percent of basestealers. A 6-foot-1, 207-pounder who bats righthanded, Wise has enticing power and arm strength. He'll need to make better contact and quiet down as a receiver in pro ball. A 45th-round pick by the Athletics in 2007, he's the great-nephew of 1960 World Series MVP Bobby Richardson.
