Orioles select Cody Sedlock. He was the Big Ten pitcher of the Year this spring.

College stats: 5-3 record, 2.49 ERA, 101.1 IP, 80 H, 4 HR, 31 BB, 116 K, and a .219 opponent batting average .219 AVG

From MLB.com:

"Illinois left-hander Tyler Jay went from dominating with Team USA in 2014 to the No. 6 overall pick in 2015. Now the Illini have another pitcher prepared to use a summer breakout as a springboard to the early rounds of the Draft. Sedlock starred in the Cape Cod League while transitioning from the bullpen to the rotation, then earned Big Ten Conference pitcher of the year honors and set a school strikeout record this spring, fanning 116 in 101 1/3 innings to surpass former first-rounder John Ericks' mark.

Though Sedlock was primarily a reliever on a deep Illinois pitching staff in his first two college seasons, he has all of the ingredients to start. He throws four pitches, fills the strike zone, generates a lot of groundouts and has a strong 6-foot-4, 210-pound frame.

Sedlock's best pitch is his heavy sinker, which sits at 91-93 mph when he starts and can reach 96 in shorter stints. He also can miss bats with his low-80s slider. Sedlock's curveball and changeup aren't as effective, but they have their moments as well."

Here's a Baseball America game report from May 20 on Sedlock

Sedlock struck out seven and walked three and lowered his ERA to 2.49. Despite that great ERA, he’s just 5-3 as the Illini have scored just eight runs in his past five starts. A year after setting a school record with 50 wins, the Illini are 26-23 and staring at the end of their season if they don’t win the next two.

But you can’t pin that on Sedlock. Outside of a March 11 start vs. UNC Greensboro, he has not allowed more than three runs in his 14 starts, and has thrown at least 104 pitches in eight of them. His 120 pitches Thursday were 12 short of his season high and in four of his past five starts he’s pitched at least—at least—nine innings. He pitched 10 2/3 innings against Ohio State, striking out 14 with no walks in a 1-0 win on April 22.

ou can't make this stuff up....

If you had to pick a major-leaguer (current or former) that you had to compare your game to the most, who would it be?

"Jake Arrieta, absolutely. Same frame, same repertoire. We're both guys who pitch from the right side of the rubber. I don't throw across my body as much as he does, but we both throw aboutt 50% fastballs and two-seams with pretty good movement. About the same velocity, though he might throw a couple ticks higher than I do. Slider, curveball and we both have a changeup in our back pocket that we can use."

DD traded for the great Pedro.

And traded away the great Jake.

Pretty much a disaster. At .191 in 35 games in low A ball. This pick is a complete dud. If he is in the system after next year, I will be shocked.

This year seems like a solid pick.

Stewart was a head scratcher. Unorthodox stance, weak arm, not enough power for 1b, why not take a pitcher. Shrug. Whatever.

Overall it seems like a real nice pick. We have 2 picks in round 2?

For everything the NCAA legislates, they allow a coach to abuse a kid's arm like that?

Correct, one is compensation for not signing Jonathan Hughes last year

So I guess he'll spend much of his career on our DL

He was a reliever before this year. Hopefully the lack of damage from the prior years will balance this year out.

    • Good points Drungo! I like the idea of working backwards from the desired outcomes of a system. Goal 1: Service time should no longer be a deciding factor in free agency or player promotion. I think automatic free agency after the age 27 season would be good (or after age 23 if they've never made it to the majors), with a better compensation system worked out between the team that signs and the team that loses the guy in free agency. Maybe a % of the contract value? Goal 2: Significantly reduce the bloated, inefficient system. Limit minor league affiliates to 2 full season teams, 1 short season team, and whatever overseas academies they want. Pay the minor leaguers better. Cut the draft in half (20 rounds).
    • As long as it isn't DJ on horseback! Otherwise I'd worry that the ball would hit the horse square in the forehead, risking career-ending injury to the glove (not whip)-wielding jockey as its knees buckled.
    • When I started this post I didn't know if twenty people would respond or a hundred. More have responded and with some good comments. I didn't say I think Hyde should be fired. I threw out the possibility with Elias terminating a lot of people in the organization. I don't think he will be replaced even though he does questionable things almost every game. The coaches are a different story.  I think several could be replaced and possibly our advance scouts and if Hyde is like most managers he won't replace them. It will have to be Elias who makes the needed changes. Will he ? It looks like Detroit will get the number 1 pick.  I think they are 3 1/2 behind us with 10 to go. 7 vs the White Sox and 3 vs the Twins. We have 3 with Seattle, 3 with Toronto and 3 with Boston. We could lose them all and so could Detroit.  This is going to be hard to predict.  Number 2 is still okay.
    • ^^^^^^^^^Listen to this man.   He was a very good defensive outfielder in his day.
    • Just watched the replay, and timed it.   If he had IMMEDIATELY thrown the ball back in instead of beating his chest, it might have saved 2-3 seconds.  Tonight's game lasted 10,380 seconds according to the box score.   So at the very worst the "celebration" added 0.02% to the time of the game.  Even if a game had 50 such celebrations, it would add roughly 2 minutes to the gametime. One pitching change probably takes 30-50 times longer than the "celebration". You can dislike it all you want, but trying to say it slows down the game is an absolutely absurd stretch of logic to try to support your point.  
    • My 3: Get rid of Davis. He isn't a ML capable player anymore. The money is a sunk cost. Bite the bullet and cut him loose. Find some pitching. Doesn't have to be expensive or flashy. Just a few guys that can get more outs. Tighten up the D. Again, not expensive or flashy, just a bit above average. Next year is year 2 of the rebuild so I'll be patient. These would be prudent goals for now.
    • Its a meaningless game for the 2019 Orioles, but not for Austin Hays.  He's showing he's a major league ballplayer and he makes major league defensive plays.  The O's and major leagues in general need more excitement.
