San Diego Padres: Top 10 Prospects

3. SP Matt Wisler– Wisler gets some high praise from most guys, but I’m not 100% sold on him yet. That being said, Wisler has a decent fastball that he pairs with a good slider as his go to pitches. He has an easy delivery before whipping the ball, and hides the ball pretty well. He had some struggles in 2014 while pitching in El Paso, the Padres AAA PCL affiliate, but the league is notoriously tough on pitchers, and Wisler has to grow some more. If he has some success at any point, I think we could see him in a Padres uniform in 2015.

Grade: A-  Potential: He could be a good number 2 or 3 starter.

    Agree w/the top three, but would put them Renfroe-Wisler-Hedges. Hedges’ defense is stellar, but his bat is really lacking. I don’t see Taylor Lindsey being anything in the majors, I think that Jose Rondon was the biggest piece in the Huston Street deal (no slight to RJ Alvarez, who was recently traded to the A’s in a package for Derek Norris and Streich). A prospect that I was really looking forward to was Mallex Smith, who was traded to Atlanta, I’ll be interested to see if he lands in their top 10, not sure how strong their farm is.

    Good read! Great review of the new top 10 with all the changes. I will be interested to see what other changes are in store and how AJ Preller drafts.
