While growing up in Severna Park, Sander Beck played baseball like a lot of young boys his age. But the background of Beck was much different than many of his peers. For one, his father was born in The Netherlands.

Meyer seems interesting. Big frame, 92 on the FB. I'd love to hear more about him.

I saw him pitch against Timber Creek in High School (6A) playoffs a month or so ago. He was supposedly out for a while this season with an unknown injury, but looked very good (low 90's) velocity wise. I obviously didn't have a gun on him. He repeated his mechanics, smooth delivery and appears fairly athletic. His command was very solid and his curveball had downward two-plane movement. I was impressed with him. I talked with Dante Bichette on him and he was impressed with what he saw. I forget where the kid was committed to school, but I was told he would likely go to school. Edit, school is UCF. So, the local school may be hard to beat unless we really show him the money.

Thanks for that report. I know we're not going to get all of these "overslot" guys, but I think the success of the draft will come down to just how many we get.

    • Back when we signed Odor, my eyes rolled, probably a medically unsafe distance back into my skull. It took awhile, but he grew on me. Gritty, red-assing, bluster and pimping beyond his skill set, but he grudgingly grew on me. When he was flailing at the plate, and we started to show signs of life, I gnashed teeth, clutched pearls, and silently questioned Hyde's manhood. Recently, I realized Odor is not going to be here beyond this year, and decided to simply appreciate his contributions towards, lets face it, what was looking to be another very shit*y, tank-worthy team. I believe I'll eventually look upon him fondly, in what has been an amazing season, no matter how it turns out. So, a hat tip to you, Mr. Rougned Odor, for your contribution, and also, for snapping Joey Bats head back like a human pez dispenser. That was awesome.  
    • I've been very pleasantly surprised by Mountcastle's speed, and more recently, AR, even Vavra, and blown away by Gunnar..... So, yes, I am also surprised and a bit perplexed by Stowers foot speed (or perceived lack there of). Weirdly, it looks like Stowers is tentative, or something mental more than physical ability to move quickly. But just my impression, nothing to back it up.
    • He is also slower than he looks like he should be which is kind of the opposite of what I normally feel about guys that come up.  Mountcastle, Adley, and Gunnar all struck me as faster than I expected, e.g.
    • Agreed, just from a purely logistics perspective it wouldn't surprise me if both he and Gillaspie are optioned after tonight's game, and someone like Sulser and Vespi are brought up. 
    • He also really looked bad missing that tag at second tonight.   Sometimes it seems his head is not in the game. 
    • I don't see that changing either.  I think he is what he is at the plate.  He could still bring a lot of value in a reserve role. 
    • He can only come back up to replace an injured player. But he would qualify for post season play...
