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.

    • Rotoworld: Kevin Gausman racked up seven strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings of work in a no-decision against the Phillies on Thursday. Gausman was tagged for three runs despite not allowing an extra-base hit over six-plus frames. He scattered five singles and only issued a pair of walks. The 27-year-old right-hander flummoxed the Phillies lineup by generating an eye-popping 12 swinging strikes on 32 splitters. He’s relied more heavily on the offering since arriving in Atlanta and the results have been astonishing. He’s 5-2 with a 2.80 ERA 
    • Jake had more pitches with more movement and the pitch that would prove to be his best is one he didn’t use much here. The cutter is taking over baseball, bum SPs like Chavez are going to Chicago and becoming high leverage RPs on that pitch alone, but nobody in Baltimore throws one.  I believed that the Arrieta deal was awful when it was made - but as much as Dan frustrated me with that move - 18-28 other GMs should have offered Baltimore more and failed their organizations by not doing so. One team was willing to give a little bit for Strop and the future Cy Young award winner - we haven’t had the best timing when we sell, we sell low or not at all recently.  In a world of advanced metrics players continue to reinvent themselves — launch angle and spin rate dominate discussions that used to be about going the other way and ERA. We are well behind the times, but money can update our organization overnight if we want to invest in elite analytics and the teachers of how to implement what the data suggests we must.   
    • I don’t really feel like looking it up, but I am certain that Gausman has done better at the end of the season than the first half.  Can’t say that the Braves have made him into the next Arrieta. On the Arriera thing, I was crucified on here when I suggested that Arrieta got rather muscular with his Pilates during the off season before his Cy Young performance for the cubs (has not thing to do with Gausman nor do I think Gausman is juicing. Just had to throw in that I suspect Arrieta and his lack of follow up performance makes me think it is valid)
    • Gerrit Cole disagrees. I have watched a lot of Ozark season 1.
    • I've watched a lot of NL games this year since the O's have been so bad. I don't care what anyone says - the pitcher batting makes a HUGE difference. Instant rally killer. Often an automatic out and at the very least, a low pitch count at bat.
    • The hegemony never stopped.  The regular season and big signings tell us who has been boss, despite a nice 4-year run for us. Yankees have averaged 92 wins per year since 2009, which also includes this uncompleted rainbow sunshine of a year.   The Yankees worst stretch was winning between 84 and 87 games from 2013 to 2016.  Take out those years and they have been... we all know.  And how about the Yankee's Latin player development?   I can't blame the Yankees for fairly exploiting a very broken system governed by the feckless MLB, the world's strongest union and, frankly, selfish owners who own a unique product (I liken it to almost serving in office) and should not treat it like any old business.  But they have the right to be that way as long as MLB allows the same teams to land the TRUE first-class free-agents every single off-season and trade deadline.  /rant Red Sox 88 games per year with a few to go this year since 2009.  Red Sox were certainly spotty, but very opportunistic when they had good seasons.  And their "bad teams" had great players,too.  And they always turned it around the next season. They are flat out dominant this year. The Orioles are run like a third-world country.  
    • I'd be interested to see if you thought Markakis was being "selfish" for taking the fourth year in Atlanta..... And, I personally don't think the O's should bring back Jones - so not sure where you are getting this "fandom" thing from, or why you are trying to passive aggressively insult me here. Regardless, insulting Jones' character is in poor taste. The man has done everything right here. You can keep acting like coping and pasting a definition makes you right - but the upvotes on posts in this thread speak otherwise. You clearly have an issue with him and it's not a good look.
