GCL Oriole Notes 2018

The only hitters that we spent a top draft pick on out of HS in the past decade have been Manny, McKenna and Mountcastle. This trend makes sense, as college hitters are more polished and you get a sense of what they'll do moreso than HS hitters who need time to develop unless the upside is that high. 

Hall.

I totally forgot about him, good catch

 

In the last 10 drafts including 2018, you can add a number of top 10 round HS bats.....Alexis Torres, Lamar Sparks, Jaylen Ferguson, Seamus Curran, Jason Heinrich, Josh Hart, Chance Sisco, Jonah Heim, Alex Murphy, Nick Delmonico, Connor Narron, Wynston Sawyer, Mychal Givens, Mike Ohlman (not top 10 or overslot).

Curran and Sisco have the most hope for an impact of the two drafted most recently. Everyone else bombed, hasn't done anything or became a pitcher.

Yep, the scotish wonder. .763 OPS in delmarva, but is also 20. McKenna and a lot of hitting prospects put up meh to ok numbers in DelMarVa. Mullins put up a .785 OPS in DelMarVA, McKenna put up .712 OPS and Mountcastle put up a .745 OPS. So hence why I have hope. That and I love big lefty power bats who aren't signed to albatross deals

Ohlman and Delmonico have made MLB debuts. So 18 HS picks in the first 10 rounds.

So 5 out of the 18 have made the majors.

1 is a possible future hall of famer.

The jury is still out on 10, although Ferguson and Murphy are major long-shots to make the MLB.

That's really not a bad outcome, especially since only Machado, Sisco, Hart, Mountcastle were 1st round picks.

Sawyer was in AAA with the Twins and got injured 2 weeks ago (broken hamate bone.) He was hitting pretty good there and with their injury issues, would of had a chance at a call up.

Who is the possible future hall of famer?

Yeah. I think the brass are making the right move by not drafting HS batters unless their upside calls for it in the top rounds.

Nick Delmonico says hello and that he didn't necessarily succeed with the O's, however he is doing well in the major leagues as a hitter.

It took him forever, and he’s doing moderately well in Chicago. More power or him I guess

    • MLB Pipeline did a Top 10 on their podcast this week, including shreds on I guess NCAA sophomores who like Kjerstad in February/March may have done stuff for a few weeks.  It also acquainted me with the demographics of the basket where 1-5 will be one of them. Pirates 1 - Lawlar the HS shortstop Rangers 2 - Kumar Tigers 3 - McClain, some Madrigal-sized middle infielder from UCLA, maybe/maybe not SS Red Sox 4 - del Castillo, some slugging catcher from "The U" deemed best hitter in draft Orioles 5 - Leiter (I'd be glad with this outcome for polish going towards 2022 usefulness) D'Backs 6 - Jake Hill, the LSU right-hander, non-Vanderbilt best of SEC rest.   Guessing Ben may know him some. Royals 7 - Jud Zabian, Florida OF    <mock now at 6 straight NCAA after the high school SS character who seems impossible to get to 1-5> <hosts say these Top 7 are a clear tier in whatever order they fall> Rockies 8 - Alex Vanellas, Louisville 3B Angels 9 - Marcelo Mayer, high school SS #2 Mets 10 - James Wood, IMG Academy high school OF <nary a high school pitcher in these 10, though with draft pushed back to July, the Nick Bitsko analogs born in 2003 will have some extra time to strut their stuff, in case the next Kerry Wood, Josh Beckett or Dylan Bundy can only Netflix and chill right now>    
    • I would dangle him to anyone whi would take him. I didn't want him back at any cost let alone 1.8M
    • He is so streaky that when he is in his funk he will be worse than the MIF we run out there.
    • https://halohangout.com/2020/07/13/angels-garrett-stallings-summer-camp/ An Angels fansite report when he later got to their 60 this summer cites a curve as the Junior year difference maker. Their source for that this campus story https://247sports.com/college/tennessee/Article/Tennessee-Vols-Baseball-Vols-Garrett-Stallings-selected-in-fifth-round-of-MLB-Draft-132589216/ also has the details he was their 2019 Friday night guy even with Crochet on the team. His Perfect Game blurb from high school times mentioned three-quarters to over the top arm angle, gee whiz. Who knows if he could have had Kevin Smith's 2019 in parallel universe 2020?   SEC trade imports links them, but Smith actually doing it including a little AA success is a big credit in his favor for the moment.
    • He fits the Smith/Kjerstad mold of SEC guys steadily improving (Growth Mindset?), even if some of that is demonstrated in small sample sizes.   Smith did backup his Junior Year rise up draft boards with his great 2019 for the Mets.  I am imagining entering Junior year Stallings was not a 5th or 25th round profile.   He's one more piece for the box of chocolates we'll get to open in the spring.
    • I wonder if he had a velocity spike his junior year and if that would make it less likely for him to have untapped velocity?
