Statistically, I don't see much here. He's regressed in his time at Texas Tech and had more walks than strikeouts this year.

From mlb.com

"A catcher early in his prep career, Moseley didn't become a full-time pitcher until he was a senior in 2013 but quickly showed top-five-rounds upside on the mound. He slid to the Rays in the 36th round because he was set on attending Texas Tech, where he moved into the rotation late in his freshman year and didn't allow an earned run in four NCAA playoff starts as the Red Raiders advanced to the College World Series. His solid sophomore season and spectacular fall had scouts thinking he'd emerge as a first-round pick this June, but he lasted just three starts this spring before getting pulled from the rotation. There's no doubt that Moseley has enough pitches to start. His primary weapon is a 91-95 mph fastball with power sink. Both of his low-80s secondary pitches can be at least above-average offerings at their best, with his lively changeup more consistent than his slider. The problem is that Moseley's control and command aren't sharp, which gets him in trouble because he's more hittable than he should be and runs up his pitch counts too quickly. His stuff is more electric in shorter stints, so he could become a high-leverage reliever in the big leagues, but pro clubs aren't ready to give up on him as a starter."

I'm gonna call it unlikely that he's a major underslot guy.

College Juniors are rarely major underslot guys-especially in the 8th round. I don't see any real major underslot guys yet.

Palmeiro seems quite underslot....

I actually am a fan of this pick.

Palmeiro is a Junior in college. He might sign for slightly underslot. The slot value for where he was picked is $204,700. He might sign for $180K. Probably not a true major underslot.

Reading through all these threads, it's amazing to me how everyone is so preoccupied with whether each draft pick is "underslot". I do understand how the system works. For one thing, you can draft four "underslot" players but it doesn't particularly matter if you don't draft talented prospects worthy of "overslot" money. I'm not saying the Orioles haven't done that because I have no idea. I know that's what happened with Gray Fenter last year. People seem more concerned with whether the Orioles can get a bargain than if the guy is deserving of being picked at that particular spot in the draft. On a side note, thanks to Weams and everyone else who has contributed to compiling all the statistics, scouting reports, and videos on the draft picks. You are all "overslot" picks on my draft board.

Did he pitch in the super regional game last night? I taped the game, but haven't had a chance to watch yet. Is he their closer now?

According to the boxscore, Tech won 3-1 in 13 innings. Mosely came in with 2 outs in the 7th, walked one, gave up a hit, and got the last out. He pitched 1/3 of the innings. The star of the game seems to be the pitcher who replaced him, Robert Dugger, who went 5 scoreless in relief for the win. Mosely sounds like a project but what the heck at this spot.

Not speaking for anyone else.

Frankly I am more interested in the idea of an overslot kid that has 2-3 round talent than I am someone that is an eighth round talent. Odds are long regardless but eighth round is really long.

Fair enough and, of course, true. But the odds become even longer when you are drafting an eighth rounder mostly because he will sign for $10,000.

    • This is the Orioles' fourth losing season in a row. Someone who's been a fan for 50 years undoubtedly remembers that the team went 14 seasons in a row with losing records from 1998 through 2011. Then the next year they made the playoffs and won their first round game and all of a sudden it was a lot of fun again. The good times will come again.  Can't guarantee it'll be next year, but they will come.  
    • You’re right about some things, wrong about others. watch and see if things get better. I think they will.
    • I think at the moment, we get the 8th pick
