Scouting Report

Wiseman has one of the sweetest swings you can find at the high school level. He has big natural lift built into his swing and he keeps his head on the ball nicely. He's a good overall athlete, but his bat will carry him. He's had some issues against better pitching, but being from the northeast that's to be expected. His swing resembles Carlos Beltran's left-handed stroke. He uses his lower half very well and can drive the ball out to the deep parts of the park.
