Sedlock off to a good start

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?

I’ll say not necessarily.    It’s more about the quality of the performance than the former draft ranking.

Rough outing today for Sedlock. Went 4 and 2/3rds and allowed 4 runs on 7 hits with 2 walks and 3 strikeouts over 81 pitches. He also threw 3 wild pitches. He has only thrown 1 wild pitch prior to today, so hopefully that is a one off thing.

He should have two starts left this season, though I don't know what (if any) his inning limit is.

Good chance Sedlock begins next year at Bowie, I think.   He’s done reasonably well there overall but I think Elias will want him to have some more AA innings under his belt before moving him up.

Yeah, I agree. There is enough competition for starting innings at Norfolk anyway, especially at the beginning of the season.

I’m assuming a Norfolk rotation of Akin, Zimmermann, Kremer, Lowther and Wells to begin the season.     They might give Akin a shot at the Baltimore rotation, but I’m guessing they’ll want him in Norfolk to begin the season.

He has only thrown 25 innings at Bowie so I wouldn't promote him yet. And I'm not 100 percent sure yet that he isn't a starter. Most important thing is to have a full healthy season next year to figure it out.

Where is Baumann?

Oops, completely forgot about Baumann.    That’s a tough one.    He may have leapfrogged several of the guys I listed in terms of prospect status, but he’s well behind them in AA innings.    I’ll guess he remains at Bowie until the first Norfolk starter is called to the majors.    But it won’t surprise me if he goes to Norfolk and they hold someone else back.

Are you at least 90% sure?

Yeah 90 percent is probably about right.

But he needs the reps either way, and there will be available innings at Bowie where he will have thrown less than 40 innings. Give him a full healthy offseason and half a season as a starter and see how he looks, if his future still looks like relief then bring him to Norfolk to crank it up as a 1-2 inning guy and then if he plays well, to Baltimore in September.

That is, by the way, exactly what they did with Hunter Harvey this year, and Harvey had almost the same amount of innings last year at Bowie (32 and a third) albeit less successful innings than Sedlock, and he didn't throw an additional 61 innings in Frederick as Sedlock did this year.

I think Baumann opens in Norfolk and Akin is in Baltimore.

Yeah, I think what Akin is in Norfolk this season is about what he is going to top out at at the major league level. I don’t see that changing by starting him at Norfolk again next season.

He may end up in the bullpen, but I think he's better than several of the starters we've tried this year. We have too many good ones behind Akin who need the AAA experience.

    • Just talking about the general trend that analytic teams realize that arms are more risky, so they're ranking gets slightly dinged to compensate for that. He also didn't pick a pitcher until the 8th round last year. Things like on base skills are harder to mold using modern training, places like driveline are much more effective for pitchers.
    • I guess so.  If they want to have Mize paired with Lacy/Hancock, it's hard to argue with.  Tork does seem to be the consensus #1 pick though.  I am curious when the last time there was a player previously thought to be the consensus #1 pick who didn't go first overall.   
    • Saw a mock draft with us taking Martin and left drafting pitcher Nick Swiney at 30 https://prospects365.com/2020/05/25/ray-butlers-2020-mlb-mock-draft/
    • The Frobster beat me to posting the Melewski interview by 13 minutes.   The article mentions the Os in on quality international prospects that we knew about including Samuel Basallo and Maikol Hernandez and one that I am not sure I have seen mentioned with the Os here - Wilmer Feliciano who will get a signing bonus just under $500k and has big left-handed power.  A reminder that none of these guys are signed, just apparently committed or agreed to the Os until they are signed. It seems like a very strong group of elite prospects given how late our current FO was to the game of signing this upcoming J2 class.   The payoff from these guys is likely years away, but I think there is a chance last year's class and this year's class should start impacting our top 30 prospects entering 2021.  How optimistic is it to think predict our next international signing to reach our top 10 would be by 2022?  
    • Don’t have a subscription, but here’s an interview the author, Ben Badler, gave to Steve Melewski.   https://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2020/06/baseball-americas-ben-badler-on-os-international-effort-video.html At the end of the video, Badler speculates that the next CBA will create an international draft.   He thinks the players will posture about and then “maybe they’ll trade it for a few extra inches of legroom on the bus.”    LOL!    
    • Bad quality vid but its the only one that I found that shows Frohwirth's side of it. Back in that era Martinez grabs some pine 9 out of 10 times with that pitch.
