    Wiper was a premium prospect out of high school, but the Blue Jays couldn't sign him away from Oregon as a 14th-round pick in 2011. He missed the 2012 season after needing Tommy John surgery and was ineffective this year for the Ducks, only earning George Horton's trust for 13 innings of work. At his best, his fastball is in the 90-93 mph range and he shows flashes of a sharp curveball and slider, though they are inconsistent and his command hasn't yet returned. Even after a disappointing season, Wiper is expected to be a difficult sign.
