Lowther finally added to player pool. He had an oblique injury, which kept him off.

MurphDogg,  Who do you think Elias adds to the 40 man roster prior to the winter meetings.  I know you were tracking this?   

(7)  Zimmerman, Diaz, Baumann, Gonzalez, Bannon, Pop, Lowther?

Mattson, McCoy, and Wells are the other serious candidates. 

Is that Brian Gonzalez on your list? I would think any of the three I mentioned would be ahead of him, although he did crack the player pool. Guess it depends on whether they like what they see out of him there.

I mean, anything is possible.  But what are the odds that a high school pitcher taken high in the first round is going to have a HOF career?

Here's a list of the best 10 careers out of high school pitchers taken in the top 10 picks:

Zack Greinke (#6 overall)
Clayton Kershaw (7)
Dwight Gooden (5)
Jon Matlack (4)
Josh Beckett (2)
Kerry Wood (4)
Mike Morgan (4)
Bill Gullickson (2)
Joe Coleman (3)
J. R. Richard (2)

So far, since the draft started in '65, there has never been a HOFer picked as a high school pitcher in the top 10 picks. Roy Halladay (#17 in '95) is the only 1st round high school pitcher to be inducted into Cooperstown.

This is out of 430 high school pitchers taken in the 1st round.  Clyde going to the Hall was always a longshot.

Greinke and Kershaw probably will both go in.

I'd take off Pop and Gonzalez. It doesn't seem like Mike likes Wells much but he's a possibility.

Pop is a back of the bullpen righty with a career 1.34 minor league ERA and a 2.8 BB/9 and a 9.0 K/9. Fastball hits 98. I would be floored if he wasn't added.

He should have a good chance to contribute to the 2021 bullpen. With Castro and Givens gone, he could be the second best righty out of the pen after Harvey.

He should probably be added to the player pool in the next week or so, as he is supposedly recovered from TJ.

I don't see Gonzalez and Bannon lasting through the winter.

Wonder if Bannon will get any looks at 2nd or 3rd this year. Nothing really to lose not like Bannon is a can't miss guy

    • I don't know what to say without seeing him, but I doubt he is protected. And even if he is picked, I doubt he would stick for the entire year. That said, if he really has turned some corners, then there is room. It may be at the expense of another prospect, though. 
    • Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but I didn’t see it. Was two weeks before this thread.  
    • And the Rays announcers are really good. Much better than the buffoons who chatter during Os games
    • This is a really gripping series. I’ve never been so engaged by two teams I don’t really care about... although I want the Rays to win, of course. The Dodgers and Nats are the evil children of the NL.
    • It is in the last 30 seconds of this 50-minute podcast, but FWIW they had the Hartford (Rockies AA) play by play guy as a guest Nevin expert, and skimming Vavra at the end he said he thought Vavra would have had a good chance to make the Yard Goats this year (i.e., do the Low-A to AA double bump in 2020). The other Nevin nuggets were August 2019 Eastern League Player of the Month, and giving the near 1B only 2019 positional context as in part being driven by having Colton Welker as a teammate.    
    • Nice to hear the tidbits on Baumler from the Instructional League.  I know folks are going to point out the nature of what is reported is overwhelmingly positive, and they are right, of course.  Still, this last draft was performed with heavy analytics and without in person or in competition video for the spring 2020 season in college and HS baseball and without in-person workouts.  IMO, the positive comments are an early vindication of our draft strategy and the two HS prospects we invested big $ in with the expectation that they were essentially second or third round talents.  The early word from various quotes from Matt Blood is that Mayo and Baumler are who we thought/hoped they were or better. 
    • I don't see him getting picked.  Do we have the space on the 40 man for him?
