He is the same height as Jim Johnson, has a very similar throwing motion as Jim Johnson, and gets very similar results (at least from the videos posted above) as Jim Johnson. I hope he signs and can become a starter.

You're new to posting here so I have no idea if it was intentional or not but...

That last sentence was brilliant.

I'm a little bit confused by his arm action, specifically the angle at which his right arm stays bent the entirety of his delivery. Seems kind of like a TJ waiting to happen, and I can't imagine it's the most efficient way to throw a baseball. I like his overall package right now, especially for a 34th rounder, but that delivery doesn't look great and I'd imagine cleaning it up would be close to a necessity if he's going to have a career.

From the videos he looks like a short armer. Tough on the shoulder.

found this one, he's not as bad as the other videos looked

Bugg has a scholarship to LSU so it's pretty apparent that this is a flier taken by the Orioles. Whatever his number is, it's got to be pretty high so the chances of the Orioles saving enough money in the top ten rounds in order to afford him is pretty low.

"Bugg was 5-1 this spring at Rancho Bernado High, with a 0.90 ERA, 39 strikeouts and 7 walks in 39 innings. He didn't appear in a game after April 11." http://parkerbugg.com/louisana_state_university

He had a stress fracture somewhere in the lower part of his body that took him out of action and cost him the rest of his season. Apparently this is an injury that has occurred before, so there is a bit of an injury red flag with this guy.

I imagine he'll need to go to LSU and pitch injury free for three years to get past those concerns.'

I'd say the chances of this kid signing is very slim to none.

Good kid though judging by his website.

Bugg was drafted in the 27th round by the Marlins in 2016.

    • It’s already so far out of touch, I doubt fans care if a player is making $20 mm/yr or $40 mm/yr.    They’re already in a whole other universe.   
    • First off, you were being condescending by making us sound like we were a no nothing blog, so stop with all of the hard-ache. Secondly, if you are in baseball and you don't take as many opinions as you can then I would look inward at yourself. Scouts outside the organization have zero to gain by down grading a player to us. The guys I talk to I've had relationships for years. They are an opinion to be added in with other opinions within the organization as well as our scouting. You are 100% correct that opinions are just that. I'm completely fine with anyone having a differing opinion than me, and I don't take offense at someone who says that they don't agree, but there is absolutely no need to disparage someone's opinion as being lesser because you don't agree. I've been doing this for 20 plus years. That doesn't make me infallible or never wrong, but I'll lay my process down against anyone including professional baseball people. That doesn't make me right, but it sure should mean I deserve a little respect and don't get called "blog pages ", whatever the heck that means. It doesn't matter what the team has in store. I feel his most likely outcome is a platoon outfielder because of his inability to hit lefties. Doesn't mean that he might not improve or a team might live with it and play him every day,   
    • That's a hell of a prediction.  These defenses font strike me as good enough for a game like that.   That said, I fully expect McCarthy to outcoach the ever loving hell out of Harbaugh.
    • 1965 = 4,658 / 1.77 1975 = 8,631 / 2.59 1985 = 16,823 / 5.66 1995 = 24,706 / 13.14 2013 = 44,888 / 23.89   Ref: http://roadsidephotos.sabr.org/baseball/earlyticketprices.htm https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Average_Indexed_Monthly_Earnings
    • Hate this rule more than any other in baseball.
    • Must be traded during the season.  So next year Dan trades the pick to try and buoy a mediocre team.  The gambit fails but Dan tells us it's okay because they should have some picks coming from Manny and Jones walking.
    • Have to wonder where it ends? Huge supply of fans willing to spend their money, but how many more price increases are they willing to stomach before they just lose interest? Hard to re-ignite the flame once gone. I'm just guessing here, but it would seem to me that the price of a ticket and all the associated costs to attend pro sporting events has far outpaced the increase in wages in recent years (last 10-20 years?). Haven't done the research, just going off of gut feeling.
