Three weeks away from his 22nd birthday, Wisdom will be heading to the Florida State League for the first time. In the Midwest League all season to date, the right-handed hitter launched 13 home runs and drove in 62. His line was an uneven .231/.312/.411 in 372 at-bats over 104 games.
Just prior to his promotion, Wisdom spoke with me about his progress as well as his challenges since being selected 52nd overall in the 2012 draft.
