Blue Jays pick 3B Carl Wise in the 4th round of the MLB Draft

New, comment

The Blue Jays took third baseman Carl Wise in the 4th round of the 2015 draft out of the College of Charleston. He's 6'1", 215, and a power bat.

Baseball Draft Report says:

There's some nice variety at first base in the CAA this year with options including the more traditional power-hitting, aggressive swinging, plodding runner type (JR 1B/3B Carl Wise of College of Charleston), the increasingly popular athletic, average or better running, multi-purpose type (SR 1B/3B Brendan Butler of Towson), and everybody's favorite the oversized hulking slugger type (SR 1B Corey Dick of UNC Wilmington). I personally think both Wise and Butler will stack up quite nicely against their 2015 draft peers. Wise is an aggressive hitter, as mentioned, but does so in a really smart, controlled way. Butler is more overtly patient in his approach, which is nice, but hasn't flashed quite the same bit of power than Wise has shown to date. A big year for Wise could convince teams that he's a viable first base prospect while Butler seems like he's playing more to convince scouts that he could have utility as a four-corners bench bat.

Here is MLB video of him:
