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.

    • My favorite memory like that is one midweek Yankee game that I went to that was raining pretty hard.  I moved down to front row of the box seat.  It was 9th inning and I screamed Yankees suck.  Then people start shouting expletives at me and I notice I am the Orioles fan in the stadium. Some 10 year old kid even starts talking smack because he knows he has an army behind him.
