Gunnar Henderson 2019

Recommended Posts

Just an FYI... Gunnar has been playing better of late.  The 18-year old got off to a slow start, but has hits in his last 9 out of 10 games and raised his average from .158 to .241.  It's just 63 PA overall, so small sample size.  Nice to see, regardless.

He definitely has the body that will produce power eventually and getting out of the horror show that is the GCL should be good for him

Gunnar hit his first home run today in a game that the GCL Orioles are winning 20(!)-2. He also tripled. His line is up to .270/.356/.397.

Wow, several players dramatically improved their numbers today.  I'd be excited about some of them, but they're 4 or 5 years older than Gunnar.  Grats to Gunnar - keep it up.

Yep, Hernaiz also hit a home run and he is age appropriate for the league.

Trevor Putzig went 5-5 with two doubles and 2 walks. He is not age appropriate for the league though, drafted out of college last year.

Jordan Cannon hit his first home run. He is down there due to the glut of catchers at Aberdeen. Would be nice if Rutschman went to Delmarva soon and Cannon got back to Aberdeen.

Dominant.

Janvrin and Sparks are the most interesting bats in the GCL outside of Henderson and Hernaiz IMO.

So you’re still holding out hope for Sparks? Legit asking, you know way more than I do in terms of prospects.

The only thing that happened was he got hurt and it seems he’s better now. I mean he’s a long ways away and we don’t know if he’ll hit for any power, but he’s a prospect.

Would be very intriguing if he and Adley were on the Shorebirds playoff roster. Unlikely, I know, but that sure would be exciting.

Not sure that he would be an asset to the Shorebirds at this point, but you never know. I am just relieved that he is hitting better, I was worried he wouldn't be advanced enough next spring to break camp with the Shorebirds.

Aberdeen is only two back in the Wild Card race with 19 games left. Maybe Gunnar can play 5-10 games plus potential playoff games in Aberdeen.

    • In his morning article Roch is speculating 5/40 with 7 million to his KBO team.    Zero chance this O’s participate. But, I think it would be a bold move for the Orioles. If you subtract the 3.5 that they would’ve paid Iglesias if they kept him the net is really only 4 million per season including the posting. They are likely gonna bring in another experienced short stop and likely pay him 2-3 million.    Spend the saved 3.5 million and divert the 2-3 from the scrap heap guy that they are going to sign. If he hits you can deal him later for a pile and if not he’s a marginal risk at best coming out of your tv money. They have saved the amount to cover his contract over the last few seasons to cover its entirety
    • MLB Pipeline did a Top 10 on their podcast this week, including shreds on I guess NCAA sophomores who like Kjerstad in February/March may have done stuff for a few weeks.  It also acquainted me with the demographics of the basket where 1-5 will be one of them. Pirates 1 - Lawlar the HS shortstop Rangers 2 - Kumar Tigers 3 - McClain, some Madrigal-sized middle infielder from UCLA, maybe/maybe not SS Red Sox 4 - del Castillo, some slugging catcher from "The U" deemed best hitter in draft Orioles 5 - Leiter (I'd be glad with this outcome for polish going towards 2022 usefulness) D'Backs 6 - Jake Hill, the LSU right-hander, non-Vanderbilt best of SEC rest.   Guessing Ben may know him some. Royals 7 - Jud Zabian, Florida OF    <mock now at 6 straight NCAA after the high school SS character who seems impossible to get to 1-5> <hosts say these Top 7 are a clear tier in whatever order they fall> Rockies 8 - Alex Vanellas, Louisville 3B Angels 9 - Marcelo Mayer, high school SS #2 Mets 10 - James Wood, IMG Academy high school OF <nary a high school pitcher in these 10, though with draft pushed back to July, the Nick Bitsko analogs born in 2003 will have some extra time to strut their stuff, in case the next Kerry Wood, Josh Beckett or Dylan Bundy can only Netflix and chill right now>    
    • I would dangle him to anyone whi would take him. I didn't want him back at any cost let alone 1.8M
    • He is so streaky that when he is in his funk he will be worse than the MIF we run out there.
    • https://halohangout.com/2020/07/13/angels-garrett-stallings-summer-camp/ An Angels fansite report when he later got to their 60 this summer cites a curve as the Junior year difference maker. Their source for that this campus story https://247sports.com/college/tennessee/Article/Tennessee-Vols-Baseball-Vols-Garrett-Stallings-selected-in-fifth-round-of-MLB-Draft-132589216/ also has the details he was their 2019 Friday night guy even with Crochet on the team. His Perfect Game blurb from high school times mentioned three-quarters to over the top arm angle, gee whiz. Who knows if he could have had Kevin Smith's 2019 in parallel universe 2020?   SEC trade imports links them, but Smith actually doing it including a little AA success is a big credit in his favor for the moment.
    • He fits the Smith/Kjerstad mold of SEC guys steadily improving (Growth Mindset?), even if some of that is demonstrated in small sample sizes.   Smith did backup his Junior Year rise up draft boards with his great 2019 for the Mets.  I am imagining entering Junior year Stallings was not a 5th or 25th round profile.   He's one more piece for the box of chocolates we'll get to open in the spring.
