Who Are Your Top Three Rule 5 Targets?

Are they hearing if it is the O's that will be picking at 2?

No mention of that, but Bailey makes a ton of sense, other than that trying him as a starter is probably a bridge too far.

So Bailey was your #7 guy but Garcia didn't make your top 50.  Thoughts on why Garcia #1?

JJ Cooper is hearing Rony Garcia at pick 1, Brandon Bailey at pick 2.

 

 

Bailey seems like a solid pick. Given our rotation situation, his pitch arsenal, and the fact that he’s 25, I’d say he’s got a shot at the rotation. I mean who else?

Young guy with a chance to start, I just thought there was a combination of too far from ready and not enough upside. I have a brief note from the video I watched, 

“Low 3/4 delivery, 91-96 as a starter, solid slider, want to see in relief, was 94-96 early before losing velocity and stuff 50 pitches in”

He was one of the last 10 or so cuts. I was put off by his HR prone tendencies. He made half of his starts at Trenton which suppressed HRs to an extreme level. He gave up 2 HR/9 in AA road games (still in a pitcher friendly league).

Chances are Elias and Sig know quite a bit about him.

He’s got the vertical fastball movement they’ve been targeting and he is an elite spin rate guy.

About to start, I think.  Don't see anything on it, yet.

 

We took Bailey

I probably watch more minor league baseball than just about anyone and I’m always trying to improve my process. My evaluations, right or wrong, are original and not crowdspeak. Feel free to judge my work on it’s merits for yourself. 

I'm pretty sure he was joking but whatever, I appreciated being able to follow the draft and have a good idea about a lot of the names, thanks to the great work you did. Thanks.

What makes @Luke-OH so qualified?

Fair question. However, If you read this board regularly you shouldn't have to ask it.

Yeah, doesn’t bother me, I don’t ask anyone to think I’m qualified, just judge me based on my output.
