Well, that didn’t take long.

Washington Nationals prospect Rhett Wiseman, a 3rd-round draft pick out of Vanderbilt who made his pro debut July 10, has been named the New York-Penn League’s Player of the Week for the week of July 13-19. A centerfielder for the Auburn Doubledays (A-short season), he hit .360 with 2 HR, 7 RBI, 5 walks and 2 stolen bases.

The 21-year-old Massachusetts native was the second-highest Jewish pick in June’s amateur draft. He was the 103rd overall selection, earning a $554,100 bonus.

In his first 11 games as a pro, Wiseman is hitting .324 with a team-leading 3 HR, 9 RBI, 3 stolen bases, a .407 on-base percentage, and a .953 OPS. He has recorded at least one hit in all but 2 games.
