2019 1st round pick (1): Adley Rutschman - Catcher - Oregon State University

Recommended Posts

From Luke:


Oregon State___C___21.3 
Ht: 6-2 | Wt: 216 | B-T: B-R 

Ceiling and floor, tools and skills, talent and makeup, Rutschman checks all the boxes. A switch-hitting catcher who was one of the best hitters in college baseball last year, Rutschman has taken it to another level in 2019. He’s slashing .419/.580/.765 in one of the best conferences in the country. His OPS is tops in NCAA DI baseball this year and the best in PAC12 conference history. He pairs above average bat speed from both sides of the plate with excellent strike zone judgement and a powerful rotational swing. He lifts the ball very naturally, easily getting to his plus or better raw power in games. Defensively he’s a field general who has a strong, accurate arm and quick transfer. He’s a quiet receiver who frames well and is more agile than you’d expect given his frame.

Is Adley's ETA really next season?

It will be interesting to see how they handle him. He will most likely be ready by next year, but do you waste some of his controlability on another bad team next year?
