2020 college prospects watch

Recommended Posts

 

Emerson Hancock, vs. Richmond: 4.0 IP, 9 H, 6 ER, BB, 4 SO
Asa Lacy, vs. Miami (OH): 6.0 IP, 3 H, ER, 2 BB, 8 SO
Reid Detmers, vs. Ole Miss: 5.0 IP, 3 H, ER, 2 BB, 9 SO

 

Austin Martin a bit slow out of the gate, 2 for his first 10.

Torkelson 3 for 9 with 2 HR.  Nice start.  Also 8 walks with 9 at-bats.  4 of them were intentional.

Nick Gonzales is on fire 8-14, 4 HR!   Short fences where he plays, but has been in beast mode...!

And Austin Martin is playing third base like he did last year. He's never been a regular shortstop in college.

They say that Gonzales hits at altitude against 2nd tier college pitching.   But the numbers may be tough to ignore.  For what it's worth, he dominated the Cape Cod League too...

Potential 2021 #1 overall pick Kumar Rocker survived a tough 2nd inning to finish with a great first game.   Nasty slider- filthy...

Gonzalez could be our Anthony Rendon for the next 10 years. He’s my choice right now.

I've watched Kumar pitch quite a bit.   He's a once in a generation type talent and if he stays healthy, he's virtually a lock for #1 next year.   That's why the O's really need to finish with the worst record this year- I'd be disappointed if they don't....

Anybody else watch college baseball on ESPN app? Any other game recommendations, if so.  I get ESPN+ as well.  Watched Rocker's game this weekend and yeah he is a phenom.

IS there a clear cut ace pitcher this year?

Most seem to think Georgia's Emerson Hancock is the best.   He does possess Electric stuff.   He fell flat on the season opener, but rebounded nicely in his second outing.

 

The other top arms include Asa Lacy (my favorite), JT Ginn (currently shelved with arm "soreness", uh-oh), Reid Detmers and Tanner Burns.

 

To me, Hancock and Lacy and Detmers seem like future Ace pitchers...   Lacy and Detmers are lefties.

Tork Five walks for the win.

Veen all the way up to 4. Not good for my idea of snagging him at a discount and getting someone else over slot. Unfortunately I don't think the risk you would take picking him second would be worth it when you can get proven college players with huge ceilings as well.

    • Talk about "lack of imagination..." -- I'm talking about the ZiPS figures, not Szymborski or the Orioles. Hardly seems worth running the projections over five years if there's so little variation from year to year for each of those players. Maybe I'm just spoiled by wildly fluctuating careers in baseball sim games... or reality itself.
    • Wow, I'm shocked to see we're technically still in it. I basically called it done a couple of losses ago. But how could I forget, it ain't over till it's over! 6 games left, so basically the O's have been in contention for 90 percent of the season. Who'd a thunk?
    • The original intention is to stock up on international players which he’s also done. 
    • Well, we're up against it now.   Toronto beat the Yankees tonight.  There's now only one way the O's can make the playoffs: 1) Sweep the Red Sox 2) Toronto loses three to the Yankees the next three days 3) Seattle loses at least 2 games ([email protected], 4 vs Oak)*     *If Seattle goes 5-1 or better, we would still be OK if Houston loses at least 5 of their last 6 (2vsSea, 4 vs Tex) 4) Angels lose at least 1 more game (2 vs SD, 3 @Dodgers)
    • o   (vs. DEVIL RAYS, 9/21)   deGrom had 14 Strikeouts over 7 Inning Pitched tonight ...... but he was charged with a loss, as his Mets fell by a score of 2-1.   https://www.espn.com/mlb/boxscore?gameId=401226481   For the 2020 season overall, deGrom has a 2.14 ERA and an 0.921 WHIP.   o
    • “Keegan Akin started in the bullpen this year with the Baltimore Orioles but has since moved to the rotation. So far it has been paying off for the Orioles as the rookie has been nothing short of impressive. In four starts Akin has produced a 2.35 ERA, 1.62 FIP, 36.4 K%, and 15.5 SwStr%. What is even more impressive is who he put those numbers up against. In those four starts he has faced the Yankees twice, the Braves, and the Blue Jays. All very formidable offenses.  “The only issue with Akin besides the small sample size is that he lives in the zone a little too much. He has a low O-Swing% of 26.3% which means hitters aren’t chasing him outside of the zone. With command issues stemming from the minors he also might be hesitant to live outside the zone and risk walking too many hitters. This is definitely something we have to monitor.   “Akin’s main strength is his fastball which has above average movement in both vertical and horizontal movement. While it doesn’t have much velocity the movement of the pitch makes up for it. He also places it well trying to place it high in the zone as often as possible. That fastball is paired with a changeup that straight up fools hitters. It comes in 10 mph slower than his fastball with late vertical drop at the bottom of the zone. His changeup currently holds an impressive 20.3 SwStr%. “As for 2021 Akin will be an interesting pitcher to evaluate. A very small sample size alone puts a lot of this into question. But with what looks like a solid fastball/changeup combination he will be worth a shot towards the end of drafts.” https://fantasy.fangraphs.com/analyzing-rookie-pitchers-part-ii/
