LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT

 

2019 NATIONAL SHOWCASE  

 
Carter Baumler is a 2020 RHP/3B with a 6-2 195 lb. frame from Grimes, IA who attends Dowling Catholic. Nice athletic build with long limbs, some present strength and plenty of projectability remaining. Quick and easy arm action from a high 3/4's arm slot, hides the ball well behind his body, some body lean to let his arm gets through but athletic enough to stay on line well through release. Fastball topped out at 93 mph, maintained his velocity well and missed above barrels consistently with the pitch. Showed very good feel for spinning the ball with different velocities, shapes and locations, slider shows nice hard spin and bite as his primary breaking ball. Pounded the zone and missed barrels, nice outing. Showed his athleticism very well in the outfield, really stays on top of ball well on his throws with outstanding arm strength and carry. Right handed hitter, hits from a wide base with a long and strong swing approach, uphill swing plane, plenty of power in his swing. Two-sport athlete with Division One football offerse but verbally committed to Texas Christian for baseball only. Good student. Named to play in the Perfect Gam

Carter Baumler is an overslot who people did not think was signable. The Orioles reportedly will be able to sign all of their draft picks, which tells me they have agreements. What a steal as a 5th rounder. They call him a more athletic Zack Greinke.

Bauman brings a 92-94 fastball with a clean, athletic delivery with good spin rate that will up in the zone. Missed time due to mono but some believe he has as much if not more potential than the top two high school arms taken. 

This is an absolute steal. 

The Orioles basically ended up with three 1st round talents in Kjerstad, Mayo and Baumler. That's called using your bonus in a unique year the right way.

not doubting you, but who believes that he has more potential than the top two high school pitchers taken?  I would like to read more. Agree he is exciting

CARTER BAUMLER, RHP, DOWLING CATHOLIC, TCU COMMIT

Baumler is the top-ranked player in the Iowa 2020 class and rightfully so. He’s a strong 6-foot-2, 195 pound kid that could still add 10-15 pounds of muscle onto an already durable frame. His delivery is clean, athletic, and easily repeatable without much effort.

Baumler will run his fastball up to 94 mph, but primarily sits between 90-92 mph with life. He’s going to add more velocity as he continues to physically mature, which is obviously an encouraging sign in terms of his draft status. His curveball is his best secondary offering, playing primarily in the high-70s or low-80s with real depth and has showed signs of an above-average pitch. He doesn’t throw his changeup much but he’s going to have to throw it more as he enters the professional draft. The ease in his delivery and his ability to consistently throw strikes gives Baumler a safe floor and he’s a lock to get drafted.

Draft is looking a lot better than it was a couple hours ago.

 

I was getting very concerned, but if they're able to pry the last two picks away from their commits it starts to make more sense. At least there seems to be more upside now.

Can't say, but I can say they are in the know. that's just an opinion of course, maybe even hyperbole. Either way, this kid has really clean mechanics and is a fantastic athlete. This kid is 6'2" and can dunk a basketball.

Sorta.  I mean, fine, no Martin but you get Kjerstad... People can say what they want about him, for me it's all about that guys signability.  Could they have gone with Gonzales?  Hancock?  Lacy?  Maybe even Veen?  Maybe some of the other options wouldn't have been as expensive as Martin but still better than Kjerstad.

Picks 2 and 3 don't really do anything for me.  

Getting Mayo and Baumier, assuming they sign is really nice.  Lots of questions though, things we can speculate on and we'll never know.  Kjerstad is ok, picks 2 and 3 are whatever but they finished strong.

    • I think the Orioles wanted Manny for the playoffs.  In a noncompetitive season they may have had a different view.
    • There were some aspects of the Manny knee situation I’d forgotten.   In particular, when Manny shut down and had surgery on the second knee, that wasn’t what the team wanted him to do.   "Our original approach was to have him rest and then to try to play and then see if he could play ball. We also knew there was a chance of a recurrence. Given this injury and the time of the season, we thought that we would rest it and try to recover and come back and play for the rest of the year. But Manny didn't feel that was the best option." (This quote from Duquette was in a post by weams without a link.).   It also seems that Manny had the option of “rest and rehab” with the first knee and opted for surgery.    Here’s a link to the weams post, which is in a very long thread on this topic.   https://forum.orioleshangout.com/forums/index.php?/topic/17946-manny-machado-expected-to-have-surgery-on-knee-within-a-week/page/35/#comments Anyway, I’d say Manny really did the opposite of what Tatis is doing, i.e., favoring surgery over rest and rehab.    
    • The thing about Adam Is that he comes across as genuine. He’s not one of these arrogant jerks like “well, you remember that I never gave up a grand slam” Palmer who reminds us every single chance he gets, and shares memories like a king distributes largesse. Adam is just a guy telling stories. I wonder how he’d be as a broadcaster?
    • I'm 45 minutes in.  It's a good interview. I love Adam Jones as much as anyone else.  But he's about 10 years away from being a guy doing commentary on a broadcast and annoying the hell out of the audience like Joe Morgan, Tim McCarver, etc with the "back in my day" type of attitude.
    • Adam will always be one of my favorite Orioles. I wonder who our next Adam Jones will be. Not only from a performance standpoint but from being outspoken and keeping it 💯.
    • There was definitely reporting that the defect was congenital and, I believe, present in both knees.   I don’t remember if the “when, not if” discussion was a reported opinion of doctors, or board speculation.   And, I don’t know if a doctor would recommend preemptive surgery even if the doctor thought the other knee would blow eventually.   The Tatis situation really does seem like wishful thinking on his part.   Five dislocations in one season?   I doubt exercises are going to fix that.   I remember Chris Webber had a problem with recurring shoulder dislocations and tried to avoid the knife but eventually had to do the surgery.
