Mike Baumann 2019

Comments from another team’s scout interviewed by Melewski:

“I was a bit lower on him than some in our organization. We saw him up to 97 (mph) with that riding life and hop that teams are looking for now - that four-seam, up-in-the-zone action. He has the ability to pitch with that and gets swinging strikes up in the zone. The Astros really emphasize that and I’m sure the Orioles will do the same. His fastball was a real plus pitch with some natural cut to it. It might be a 70 (on the 20-80 scout scale). It’s really tough to hit thrown hard with life. Curveball has some depth. I didn’t love it when I saw him. His slider is solid, kind of cuttery.”

Thanks for this tidbit. Seems like this guy, without saying as much, sees Baumann in more of a high leverage relief role with that fastball. I’m ok with that if it’s the outcome.
