Michael Baumann 2021

Recommended Posts

Baumann is probably done, as Norfolk is now in a rain delay.   He’s thrown 5 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 4 Ks.   48 of 74 pitches for strikes.   Both runs came in the first inning, then he settled in nicely.   Good AAA debut.

Baumann was named the AA Northeast Pitcher of the Month for July.   

Bowie Baysox (Orioles) right-hander Mike Baumann was 3-0 with a 2.05 ERA in four starts. He held opponents to a .169 batting average, allowing 13 hits over 22 innings. He struck out 26 batters while walking four. Baumann, 25, was selected by Baltimore in the third round of the 2017 MLB Draft out of Jacksonville University.”

Tonight versus Jacksonville, 6IP, 0ER, 1 Hit, 2 Walks, 6 K's, He threw 83 pitches.  No-hit them through 5 2/3 innings.  I expect he could get to Baltimore this years since he is on the 40 man.  Dean Kremer is coming in relief in the 7th inning.

Kremer lost the game in the 9th, but it's great to see Baumann pitch well. Maybe he can win a spot in next year's rotation. I thought he'd make it a couple of years ago when he was pitching so well.

Interesting start for Baumann tonight: 4 IP, 1H, 1 ER, 6BB, 4K and a wild pitch.  Took 72 pitches to get through 4 IP and only 37 strikes out of those 72 pitches.  I didn't watch but he seemed to settle down after walking 4 in the first 1.1 IP.

ERA at Norfolk now at 1.80

Baumann lasted only one inning tonight, allowing 2 runs on 3 hits and 2 walks.   He threw 39 pitches in the inning, which I assume is why he was pulled.   

This is disappointing. I know everyone has bad outings but like... come on mannnnnn. I hate Norfolk lol.

Norfolk, where our pitching prospects go to die.  And bats too lately.

I can think of one prospect in Norfolk hitting pretty well.  ;)

The cavalry will be coming eventually.

Five shutout innings for Baumann tonight, 4 hits, 3 walks, 5 K’s.   It was a little tougher than that looks.   One of his strikeouts was on a wild pitch and the runner reached base, followed by two singles, but Baumann escaped on a double play grounder.   Later, he allowed two hits, got a DP on a foul pop up to Rutschman where he caught a runner off 2B (not sure how that happened) walked a guy and got the third out on a caught stealing.  Good inning for Rutschman, not so much from Baumann.  But hey, his ERA at Norfolk is 2.14, so we won’t complain!

    • LOL sounds like a former employee still on the dole!  😁
    • I forgot about the bad bunt - 2x on base is awesome and scary.  Didn't Dylan Bundy pull a hammy a few years back going from first to third?  Zack Britton hit one out if I recall.  Dang!  I keep digressing.  I might get besmirched again at this late date!  @Ruzious
    • I was there on Lavor Day.  Looked great to me. Even better than Nats Park which lacked character. 
    • It affected guys like Koufax, Kaline and Killebrew.   Overall about 60 players over 19 years.  An explanation and a list here: https://www.baseball-almanac.com/legendary/Bonus_Babies.shtml
    • Great.   They have done a good job of keeping up on things.
    • Is it showing real signs of age and does it need significant repairs? It still looks good on TV, but so doesn’t Fenway and I’ve heard stories about that place.    I ask because even though Camden isn’t ancient, it’s not new anymore. 
    • Man this thread has turned into something. I won't bother quoting everyone but wanted to share a few reactions I had while reading. 1. Matt Boyd 2018-2019 is not a worthy comparison of John Means because John Means is a much better pitcher. Any trade discussion should start from the fact that we would be trading a 28 year old cheap, controllably pitcher who is approaching 350 innings now at nearly LESS than 1.00 WHIP, ERA less than 3.60. And yes the Bedard haul is a reasonable comparison. To hell with the peripherals that don't like him. Watch him pitch. FIP says that John Means and Matt Harvey have been the same pitcher this year. He has excellent control/command with a knack for avoiding hard contact. Why is a .230 BABIP concerning when his career BABIP is .244? So any trade should be valuing him at the nearly top of the rotation talent he has been, and the not the back of the rotation the advanced metrics say he is. If not? Sorry. 2. Let's put to rest any discussion Austin Hays is a platoon player. He's our 2nd best position player. There's no concerning career splits and any O's fan should want him in the outfield everyday.  3. Ryan McKenna has played his role well for a rookie and I've become more fond of him as the season went along. Short sample size but his 11 homers and 7 steals in 27 games at Norfolk were eye opening. He's in excellent shape, hustles, is a fantastic defender, has displayed a good batting eye, and it's way too early to give up on his bat.  4. Regarding Trey Mancini and Anthony Santander's trade value, I'm not sure there is much. We are looking at a 0.9 and 0.3 B-Ref WAR players. Decent bats who have seen better days and don't provide much else. Renato Nunez provided 2.6 WAR and a 107 OPS+ in less than 2 normal seasons and was DFA'd in his first arbitration year. I want both Mancini and Santander back but let's not kid ourselves that we would be getting back a high quality package for these players.  5. I think people tend to gloss over how beneficial it is to have real major league pitchers in the majors while our prospects are developing. I'm all for tanking and not spending everything we have for a 70 win team, but without pitchers like John Means, games turn into exhaustive bullpen games, pitchers get overworked, and your prospects get yanked around or rushed. So Yeah I don't think John Means is not leading us to contention in 2022 but he is still a valuable part of the rebuild. He is not wasted value/talent whatsoever.  6. The "terrible in 2022, .500 team in 2023, and contender in 2024" timelines are pretty ridiculous. Nobody knows when it will all come together. But I do believe success breeds success, and things tend to work out or not work out in clusters. And outside additions will come. We do not have to and will not home grow this entire team.
