Dischler got strafed for a 9.64 ERA in 19 innings at Louisiana-Monroe as a freshman in 2009, but he caught the eye of scouts with a strong summer in the New York Collegiate League. He opted to transfer to a junior college to become eligible for the 2010 draft, ultimately choosing Louisiana State-Eunice over Chipola (Fla.). Dischler quickly became the ace a Bengals team that would win its third Division II juco national championship, touching 96-97 mph in the fall and working at 91-94 mph this spring. He has a lean 6-foot-3, 198-pound frame and an arm that generates velocity with ease. The key for Dischler will be refining his secondary pitches, and his success doing so will determine if he's ultimately a starter or a reliever. His 82-84 mph slider has depth at times, but it's more often flat. His changeup similarly has promise but lacks consistency. He has committed to Louisiana-Lafayette for 2011 but is expected to turn pro as a third- to fifth-rounder.
