Carter Baumler undergoes Tommy John surgery

Recommended Posts

Well damn, that was quick.

Tony, time to re-do those rankings!  Lol

Guess it’s good that he’s getting it out of the way now though.

Probably a good reason Mike Elias hasn't used high picks on pitchers.  A "Brady Aiken" phobia.

But is that good logic?   You NEED good pitchers.  If a certain percentage are going to lose the injury lottery, shouldn't you pick MORE so that you will have a better chance of getting some that don't get hurt?

Kind of a cost of doing business type thing.

Yes, a team never has enough pitching.

What is the average life of a replacement ligament?  Is it still six years? 

I'd rather he be closer to the majors before he needed it.

So he'll be making his MiL debut in 2022. Tough break. It'll be a long while before he's relevant from a prospect ranking perspective.

Right, but most likely he was 5 years out anyway.    Now that we are in the international market, I think that's where pitching prospect depth is going to come from.   Luis Sanchez and Luis Ortiz both have good early reviews and there was a bunch more signed down there.

Well, given that we picked Kjerstad over Martin so we could get Mayo and Baumler, we kiiiiinda sorta spent part of a first round pick on him

Aggravating.   Oh well, get it over with I guess.   At least we won’t get all excited by a great debut and then have the rug pulled out like with Bundy, Harvey and some others.

Strasburg's was a while ago and DC paid him big.

Yep.  Not saying he might not have a long career with the replacement ligament. 

I'd rather it be further along in his development.

Damn, just heard he was touching 95 early in the camp. Tough break for the young man and of course the Orioles. the only good news is it happened now and not at the beginning of next year which could realistically mean he could be ready by regular season 2022.

    • 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.
