2020 Round 5 (133): Carter Baumler - RHS- (HS)(Dowling Catholic)

Recommended Posts

Was looking through his twitter profile and found that he had put together a fundraising project for Pediatric Cancer. Wanted to find out more - but then his profile went private while I was looking 😄

Wasn't fast enough but was still glad to see that about his "makeup" as additional info.

Very repeatable delivery, still head, easy velo.  I like this pick.  Little "heely" on his landing in some of these videos, but with his low effort delivery, I don't see much not to like.  I like our 1st Pick and our last 3 picks.  I am not a fan of our second two picks, but they are both athletes, so they might end up developing as well.  These last two picks make me like this draft.

Ok. I have no problem with these picks but the quetion I have on this kid is this:  Kids get rated on potential,  not signability.  So, if he has so much talent and potential,  who had him as a top 100 pick?  Serious question.

2080 Baseball (Nick Faleris and co.) had him on their watch list, an addendum list to their final top 125 list.

Good question--I was wondering the same thing.  The classic "overslot" guy is someone who is ranked highly but slides because of concerns about signability.

Yeah. We got him at 133. Tony and others say he's a steal at 133. Ok.  Why? Just because he's considered a tough sign?  If someone had him rated 50 and we got him at 133 that would sound like a steal.  It sounds like a lot of the "experts" had him rated where we picked him.  How is that a steal?

...

What?

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.

Baumler 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.

 

 

More athletic than Greinke, who’s won six Gold Gloves and has an OPS that’s roughly double that of the average pitcher?    I kind of doubt it.    But that’s high praise indeed.

I guess part of his ranking was due to the solid TCU commitment? I don't really know, but Callis seemed kind of stunned when we picked Baumler and referred to it as a steal.

    • John Means cheating???
    • IMO If the O's were ahead in the standings at the trade deadline Adley would be in the majors, Galvis and Matt Harvey would stay if they were doing well.  Elias is all about the future but he is not about to give up on a first place team.    I think if the O's are within 3 games of the division lead in late July they will hold with what they have and promote Adley.  If they are more than 3 back they will be sellers.   At 7 back already they are very likely sellers. JMO.
    • They would and should do the Miller trade 100 times out of a 100.
    • Just a small caveat to your post... I think our record has NOTHING to do with it. Even if we were one game back (or ahead) at the trade deadline, Elias would trade his mother if he thought it helped the organization long term. No Angelos/Duquette trading prospects for short-term chances for Elias. I'm looking at YOU EdRod!
    • F cancer! I lost a good friend to leukemia about 15 years ago. 28 years old and newly married.
    • With he O's already 7 back in the standings it likely that Matt Harvey, Freddy Galvis and Pedro Severino will to on the trade block in July.   Harvey and Galvis because they are free agents at the end of the season.  Severino because he will be in in 2nd arbitration year and the O's are probably not going to want pay him.  They probably will not offer arbitration so if any team will  offer something in trade for him at the trade deadline the O's will probably move him.  Adley will be the O's starting catcher in 2022. Harvey leaving would just make more room for Kremer, Lopez, Akin, Zimmermann, Lowther  and at some point Baumann in the rotation. If Galvis goes  Valaika and Urias would take over the SS duties.   I look for Wilkerson to be promoted soon and given a shot at 2B.  Franco has no trade value IMO and will probably stay the season at 3B.   Valaika, Urias, Ruiz and Wilkerson all have options so they can be moved up and down to Norfolk depending on production and health.   Jones and Bannon don't appear ready for the majors to me and are already being challenged for their AAA spots by Vavra and Dorrian.   I don't think Richie Martin makes it through the season on the 40 man roster if he continues his poor hitting.  They can use his roster spot for someone else. Sisco, Wynns and Cumberland will share the catching duties  if Severino is traded until Adley is ready.  I don't expect Adley to be promoted to the majors this season. Santander, Wilkerson and Cumberland could help the O's offense.   I don't know whether Cumberland catching would be a good thing for the young pitchers though.  i think of him   more as a hitter.  
    • I'm still sticking to my prediction, exactly 70 wins.
