2019-2020 International Signings Thread

Recommended Posts

So, I'm not 100% sure, but a number of people are saying the international slot the Orioles traded to the Cubs is a 2019/20 slot and not a 2018/19. Considering the Cubs have already exceeded their budget by signing just 3 players, I'm starting to think that's likely true.

Some hand speed in the BP. Hard to judge these arms at this age, but obviously not a SS arm at this stage. Then again, I usually don't scout 16-year olds. :D

His agent is Miguel Tejada? Is that a different one or our former shortstop?

 

Edit: Nvm I see the Tejada baseball academy now

He went to the Miggy Academy?  B-12 can make his arm strong, like bull.

He might not have even been 16 when it was filmed.

I'd give rep but I'm all out apparently.

One thing I've always wondered about these workout videos, especially ones like these...are they swinging hard or only going at like, 80%?  Same with the infield throws, are they going at game speed?

Very true. which is why my comments are very, very preliminary and worth about as much as @RZNJ's take on Mountcastle! (I keed, I keed):D

switch hitting short stop 16 year old who is six foot tall. Let's sign as many guys like this as we can.

I wonder about that in any sport.  You have 16 year olds who are 6' 200 lbs and have been shaving for three years.  Then you have 16 year olds who are barely in puberty and are 5' 4", 120.  You draft the guy who hit his growth spurt at 13 and has been dominating kids who're physically inferior.  But does that mean he's going to better than the late bloomer at 19 or 25?

Elias and the Angelos brothers said they would jump into the International market and they did. I realize these kids are really young and most won't pan out but it is very encouraging.

    • Bleier trade continues to bite the O's last night.  Fry  could not find the plate especially against right-handed batters. Needing to face three batter in not Fry's game.    It didn't affect the outcome because the O's didin't  hit.  However, Fry does not look up to being the 2nd lefties in the pen  which shows how much the O's miss Bleier.  Fry would be a candidate to be sent down but there is no lefty to replace him so he will probably stay in the majors.
    • SummerSlam ‘92 is on FS1.  Quarantine + Nostalgia = Mullet for backwardsk ?
    • I missed another game. My sleep schedule sleep patterns are SOOOOOOOO screwed up... I laid down for a quick nap before the game about 4:30. When I woke up at MIDNIGHT I had missed the entire thing. Turned on the TV to watch the 11:30 replay and THANK GOD the Gnats are back playing! They're the replay tonight... fml     So.... I'm not going to read the thread or the board. Or Roch. It's 1:30 am. I'm having my "morning" glass of coffee (yes BIG TALL GLASS) and I'm going to watch the 9 am MASN replay "live". So I have THAT going for me. 🙃 GO O'S!!!!
    • And now for something completely different...   NSFW https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpx_VXRG_qc  
    • Now that does make sense: greater risk, greater reward. So do healthy pitchers make more than healthy batters? Serious question.
    • On his pro-rated salary, Cobb would earn @ $4.5MM the rest of this season. That would be nothing for a contending team to take on if they were sold on him putting them over the top. But I can't imagine being so desperate on August 4, 10 games into a 60 game season if I were a decision maker to take on the entirety of his contract.  If a team really wants to gamble a little bit of cash on Cobb to win this year's WS, they may be wrangled into taking half the burden on the 2021 salary, while the Orioles pay half of this season's $4.5MM remaining. This is starting to sound too good to be true!
    • The Cardinals never have a low pick, and yet they have a wonderful farm and consistent success
