Sedlock off to a good start

Recommended Posts

Best outing for Sedlock in a long, long time.    Hopefully someone watched and can comment on his stuff.

Not televised, I listened to the PBP, but didn’t hear any mention of velocity unfortunately. It sounded like he was spotting both the slider and curveball for strikes.

Here’s a look at his new slider.

Sedlock pitches 5 innings today, allowing a solo homer and three walks, striking out two.    Pretty solid outing despite the K/BB ratio.

6 IP 3 H 1 ER 2 BB 6 SO today. The run came on a solo homer. Obviously for Sedlock, the velocity is the most important thing to keep an eye given his injury history. I saw tweets saying he touched 95 but I cannot confirm. From a results perspective, he's certainly doing great. ERA is down to 2.49.

Is this Sedlock in this video?

Nice. Glad he's doing well and might not be another "Failed O's pitching prospect."

Is Sedlock the most pleasant surprise of the early season in the O's farm?  Wish he wasn't nearly 24, but it's not too late.

Baumann for me, but Sedlock has been a pleasant surprise as well.

If Sedlock keeps shutting down Frederick and goes to Bowie and does well, is he a top prospect again? I know it's april and mostly hypothetical, but it would be nice to see.

It depends where the velocity ends up and the consistency of the changeup. 

He showed an average change for the first time in his most recent start and also t95. Those things would go along way to helping him still profile as a starter. I'm not a big fan of his arm action and it probably won't allow for more than fringe command, so the stuff needs to be good. It's still not the same velocity and arm speed as when he was drafted.

A few more starts sitting firmly in the low 90s with an above average slider and an average change and he's probably a 45 which would put him in the 10-20 range of Orioles prospects. I have him as a 40 now, which is maybe at the backend of the top 30, but there are a lot of 40s. Backend SP/medium leverage RP potential with plenty of downside risk.

I don't know anything about him as a person, but you just hate for a guy with ML talent to have his body fail. I'm really rooting for this guy to get back to close to what he was.
