Can Greinke dunk a basketball despite being just 6-2? Was Greinke also going to be able to punt at the D-I level as well as play baseball? I don't know whether one is more athletic than the other, but this kid is a three-sport athlete who choose baseball.
You may remember that around the time of the draft I pointed out, in response to the “more athletic Zack Greinke” comment, that Greinke has won five Gold Gloves and is one of the best-hitting pitchers in MLB. I seriously doubt Baumler is more athletic than Greinke, but I will take the remark as a high compliment about his athleticism.
The other pitcher who’s supposed to be very athletic is DL Hall. If so, you have to wonder why he’s having control/command issues. You’d think that being a good athlete would lead to having good control/command.
