Adley Rutschman 2019

Recommended Posts

Being a catcher, each time he joins a new team there is an immediate need to learn the pitching staff. He needs to catch some sides to get a feel for things. He is likely going to miss out on some BP, or at least his side work, in favor of working with his pitchers. 

First pro summer, had a 6-8 week lay off, had a hectic schedule of travel on the awards circuit, media circus everywhere he goes, had mono, changed teams (and moved/packed/unpacked) three times in about 6 weeks, had to learn new pitchers and such...I think I will give the man a break if he hasn’t crushed right away at Delmarva. Just watch him play, seriously. This guy is really special in many ways.

I'm guessing he starts next season at Frederick. I am surprised to see he hasn't been able to hit South Atlantic League pitching so far. 3-30 is not a good look for a guy that was considered a premium, close to MLB ready hitter.

He wont be the MVP of International League at 22.  That is for sure.

I don't think anyone is questioning his throwing.

Did you see his laser assist from left the other day?

Yes, but not the most recent one.  Nice catch at the wall tho.
