Jon Ham (2018 31st round pick) should retire now!

Recommended Posts

Most 31st round picks are destined for a few forgettable seasons in the deep depths of the minor leagues.  Their time spent riding the bench, filling in a few games a week or perhaps if they’re lucky they get some playing time at a position not occupied by a “prospect.”  That may be young Mr Ham’s ultimate fate, but don’t tell him that!

It’s only been 2 games and ultimately the results thus far have no bearing on his future or prospect status.  Having said that,  it’s hard to get off to a much better start to a professional career than young Mr Ham.

9 plate appearances

4 singles

1 2b

1 HR

3 BB

1.000/1.000/2.667

Quit while he’s ahead and retire now or keep going and accept what the future holds for him?

He is just trying to do too much. Eat the close plays and he'll have no errors!

Early jitters, "working on things", poor MiLB fields, etc.

I don't think there is any way to check this, but he has to be the first professional player in history to be perfect at the plate through nine plate appearances, while also perfectly failing in more than one chance at a position (two chances at 3B, two errors).

I think we should start calling him John "Mr. Perfect" Ham! :D

Only 1 for 5 today — cut him!

Tried to make up for it with a stolen base and run scored, but I’m callin’ It.

Is there such a thing as a 31st round bust?
