2019 22nd round pick (648): Jake Lyons -RHP - (JR) Oklahoma State (OK)

Recommended Posts

Will be interesting to decipher his history. Signed in 2017 by the Padres, at that time age 18, from Weatherford College in Texas. Drafted now as a Junior at age 20.

Looked good in his first appearance in Aberdeen:  2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 4 K's.  

Worth pointing out that he's very age appropriate for the league.  Doesn't turn 21 until August. Like to hear some reports on his stuff.  His numbers at OK State were not impressive (reason he was likely available in the 22nd round) but his usage was all over the place.  Maybe if he sticks to 1-2 innings out of the bullpen and focuses on just two pitches he could end up being a MLB bullpen piece. 

At 6'5, 282 I imagine he at least has a decent fastball.

Five inning no-no last night!

"Lyons, 20, covered the first five innings, striking out five while throwing 41 of 61 pitches for strikes. He faced one over the minimum in the outing, with a leadoff walk in the third inning representing the lone blemish on his performance. It was Lyons’ third career start as a professional after the Orioles took him in the 22nd round of this year’s Draft out of Oklahoma State. Overall, the 6-foot-5 right-hander has compiled a 3.27 ERA with 27 strikeouts and two walks in 22 innings spanning outings."

Per @Luke-OH in another thread on Aberdeen's rotation:

"I think the fastball velocity is lackluster as well. But yeah, I’m not writing the guy off on a bad report."

    • That's.... that's exactly what I'm saying. How are you not hearing yourself? He lost the job because he couldn't hit - like AT ALL - and the mounting pressure from all that not hitting was getting to be a strain on him and the organization. So they sent him down to work on that. Meanwhile, Elias doesn't want to - like you said yourself - go to McKenna or Hays. So they just throw whoever out there. If they weren't worried about Mullins' development they would have just kept him, but you can't keep a guy in the bigs with a broken swing. Wilkerson isn't any better defensively out there, that's obvious to see. But he could hit at least a LITTLE. And let's not forget Santander and Stewart got CF looks as well. 
    • I don't love LeBlanc, but at least it will probably prevent a Cashner reunion. 
    • Notice they haven't punished the Red Sox yet? I'm betting MLB and the Red Sox got together and canned Cora so they could try and do the slow fade on the Red Sox getting caught cheating again.
    • Certainly not by me, but I think it will probably be old news to the casual fans in a few years. The only think they could have done to make it stick was have them vacate the title, as impractical as that may have been. 
    • Fans were not super keen on Christian Walker, but he's a starter in Arizona now. I think Cedric Mullins has shown enough potential (a year removed from .289/.346/.472 in AAA and 21 SB at 23yo) to get the benefit of the doubt that he had a down year instead of being branded as hopeless. 
    • I think it was worse because he lost it to Wilkerson.  They decided that a utility infielder was a better choice for CF than Mullins.  They decision to not promote McKenna or Hays had more to do with their development than it did what was happening at the ML level. I'm not convinced they sent Mullins down to facilitate his development.  I think they looked at him, looked at Wilkerson, and wanted Wilkerson in CF.  I think they have written Mullins off as a prospect.
    • If he can throw and he isn't a waiver guy, maybe a team like Pittsburgh could use him. If he can't and is, maybe we can give his slot to Mason Williams. Slow day here.
