Sedlock missed weeks with a sore elbow and has had arm issues overall.  Did you guys really want him pushed tonight?

I don't, I saw what he looked like when he was pitching hurt and I don't want to see it again.

What an encouraging start for Sedlock!  Looks like a AA pitching staff taking names and kicking ### - wow!  Not sure if any of them get to be a 3 or better, but it appears all of these starters - Zimmerman, Kremer, Bauman, Wells and Sedlock are going to pitch in the majors.  This is all very encouraging for our future - especially if one of these guys can become a cheap 3.

Im hoping we get at least three #3's out of them.

That's expecting too much.

It will be interesting to see how our FO get these guys and (Akin, Lowther) their opportunities at the major league level.  The time for those opportunities appears to be approaching rapidly.

My hopes are that the 2020 #1 pick(Hancock/Wilcox), Hall, and Rodriguez make up the top three spots of the 2022 rotation at some point. Then the rest of the Bowie guys(w/Akin and Harvey), fill out the rotation and bullpen.

He had thrown 82 and 84 pitches in two of his last three appearances (the other being a 52 pitch three inning outing where he closed out the game), so I don't think sending him out to start an inning with 70 pitches would be pushing him.

I am curious whether he has an innings limit this year. He only threw 37 innings last year after throwing 90 in 2017. He is currently at 69 innings, which is nice. The Baysox have 40 games left, plus (likely) the playoffs. He is probably looking at another 40-45 innings if all goes well and he isn't capped.

Has Sedlock regained "prospect" status? I watched one video of him. FB looked really really straight and not overpowering. The change up looked good. The results on paper look good. 

Upon watching him, my first thought was "reliever" the majors. Just looks like alot of effort to get what velocity he does. One fan's untrained eye.

Others would know better than I, but I think he has, due to his recent performance and draft pedigree.

Prospect status is a continuum, not a yes or no thing.    He’s probably borderline top 30.

I'd say he's worth protecting on the 40 and that means something.  (protecting him on the 40, not my opinion)

I'd be extremely happy to get our No.4 and No.5 starters and a couple relievers from the batch.

Yep. The prospect lists won't be gushing over him, but he's worthy of a mention, IMO.

Keith Law was asked today about Sedlock.

 

GJ: Went to Pizzeria Bianco this week before the O’s/Diamondbacks game based on your recommendation. Needless to say it was awesome! Do you believe in the resurgence of Corey Sedlock? Former first rounder finally healthy and pitching well. Future starter or bullpen piece?
Keith Law: Based on what I saw I think a bullpen piece.

 

For him to even look like a bullpen piece at this point is a huge jump forward.

Sedlock went 5 innings tonight on 68 pitches (46 for strikes), allowing 4 hits, one run, one walk, 3 strikeouts. His ERA at Bowie is down to 2.95.

Not saying he's in the top-10 next season or anything, but does a former 1st round pick regain his prospect status more quickly than he might otherwise with good performance?

    • Houston has also been able to acquire arms late in the draft or cheaply in the international market and develop them into trade assets. I'm prepping for Rule 5 draft stuff and it's unbelievable how many good arms they have in the minors that came out of nowhere (10+ round pick or older international signees). They all throw hard and miss bats. 
    • Hopefully the Nats finish this thing off today.  They have gone I think 81-40 since starting 19-31.  That is remarkable.  The Cardinals do what they always do in October....overachieve.  Thankfully, they are about to get stuffed by the much better team.  This will be a really good WS matchup regardless of who comes out of the AL. 
    • Eh, I don't really buy that in this case.  Liberatore is a lefty, has better mechanics, and more projection remaining, so I think there is a fair case for Liberatore then and now. It's really close though, Rodriguez is the better pitch at the moment, but no one really cares who is the better pitcher at 19 in low A ball. 
    • The old Liberatore vs Rodriguez debate. I think most “experts” will always try and rank Liberatore slightly higher than Rodriguez because they all criticized the O’s for “reaching” for Rodriguez. 
    • Someone pointed out before that Vaughn got pitched around his last year in NCAA. Let’s see what happens to Torkelson when/if he gets that treatment.  I don’t see how we could draft Torkelson.  Even if we trade Mancini, Mountcastle is still likely a 1B.  When team building I don’t think you pencil in your future 1B and DH spots first.   I’d like to see us draft a bat, but if the best SP is available then I’m open to that. I think that bats are safer picks and would help the system more.  Hopefully Detroit makes a mistake at 1:1 and we get the player Elias thinks is #1 overall. Lots of baseball to play till the draft. 
    • HOU got burned with taking Pitchers Appel and Aiken high. HOU has been grow the bats and buy the arms since then. Using their prospect bats to acquire proven SP.  I do think bats are safer picks over pitchers. Last draft we took lots of bats compared to pitchers. It could’ve been lots of factors at play, but I think it was a strategic decision.  Not having the number one pick in next years’ draft means we’ll likely be deciding on the 2nd best SP, Torkelson, or other NCAA and HS bats.    
    • I hope Buck gets the Phillies job.
