Vancouver Canadians

Carl Wise 21-yrs-old

A 4th round pick in ’15, Wise spent most of 2015 playing 3rd for the C’s and did well enough get ranked 20th on Toronto’s Top Prospect List. Between Bluefield and Vancouver, Wise played 51 games at 3rd, posting .231 RangeFactor, .922 Fld%, while committing 10 errors and turning 9 double plays.

In his first professional season, Wise produced at a below average level with .272 wOBA and 66 wRC+. For a guy with above average power potential, he managed to only generate .077 ISO with Vancouver.

Overall Carl hit .235/.273/.310 with .583 OPS, 11 doubles, a triple, a HR, 31 RBI, 4.1BB%, 22.2K% and .293 BABIP.

Launching pad- Lansing starter, but I agree with the scouts, that Wise has a better chance as a catcher.


Christian Williams 21-yrs-old

Williams  is a 16th rd pick in ’15. Scouting report has him with plus power potential. He split time between 1st and 3rd, playing 24 games on the left-side of the infield. Williams committed 7 errors, turned 6 double plays, generated a 1.96 RangeFactor and .870 Fld%.

Christian produced below average peripherals with .283 wOBA and 69 wRC+, while also not realizing his power potential with.098 ISO.

Overall Williams hit .220/.285/.318 with .603 OPS, 11doubles, 2 triples, 2HR, 29RBI, 8.5BB%, 23.8K% and .287 BABIP.

Launching pad- Williams should see a return to 3rd base in 2016, starting the year with Vancouver.
