tanner Rahler ss HS total gym rat. great makeup.

Anthony Alford of HS

ty Butterly Rhp HS

Carson Kelly 3B HS I would to snag him. David Wright comps.

Mitch Brown Rhp HS

Wyatt Mathinsen C HS

Walker Buehler Rhp HS

Hunter Virant lhp HS

Adam Brett Walker 1B Absolutely massive power. Ryan Howard, Mike Stanton comps.

I'm hoping for Carson Kelly or Adam Brett Walker. I also like Butterly, Rahler, Brown, and Buehler. I like Alex Wood alot as well but the delivery is funky. I would also be very happy with Rio Ruiz. love the bat.

Adam Brett Walker has huge upside but a lot of bust potential. Lot's of swing and miss and was TERRIBLE in the Cape Cod League last summer with wood bats. I still say Peter O'Brien has similar power and much more playable power. He was a 3rd round pick last year and transferred to Miami as a senior and was tearing it up early in the season before an injury sidelined him. He's a catcher who might be able to stick there but has the athleticism to play 1B well. A little on the older side as he turns 22 this summer but a much better bet to succeed than Adam Brett Walker.

Interesting, where is O'Brian expected to go? I do agree with you about Walker though. He is your classic boom or bust pick. I think he is worth a shot but I can totally understand not taking that risk. Im hoping Kelly, Rahler, Butterly or Walker is the pick. I was really hoping for Mcullers or Smoral to fall. I washoping for Pat light as well, but Butterly is really interesting. A couple other kids still around are C.J. Hinjosa and Jameis Winston. Im hoping Winston falls because of his football scholarship to Southern Miss. I would love one of the two in round 3. I like Winstons arm a lot!

Im looking at no 37, 47 and 56

37. Tanner Rahier SS

47. Hunter Virant LHP

56. Anthony Alford OF (would be a coup if we could get him to sign)

Virant and Alford are probably not signable unless BAL frees up $1 to 1.5 MM by signing Gausman for under traditional slot.

I know that there is an allocated budget for the amateur draft, however, is there any leniency in the budget, where if an overslot guy is available, we just bite the bullet on a purely talent influenced basis? I just feel as though we shouldn't be in a penny pinching position, especially when we have talked about refocusing our efforts on the developmental/amateur level.

That being said, a guy like Alford would provide a great boost to our system in terms of raw ability, and is the type of player who could be a huge steal down the road.

Baltimore has around $3 to $3.3 million left to spend in round 2-10, assuming Gausman is willing to sign for around traditional slot and not the full $4.2 allotted to that pick this year. Baltimore could probably sign anyone still available if they are willing to punt on the rest of the draft.

If they go over the aggregate allotted amount by any meaningful amount they would start losing picks -- no one still on the board is worth that sacrifice (they all went in the supplemental-1st round).

What are your thoughts on Rahier. Scouting report looks great. He's already been using wood bats.

Good all around player most likely 3b. Good glove, strong arm, was good w/wood this summer. Spring league "shrug", but yeah he was using wood.

MLB network analysts were wrong, also, last night when they said he has more experience with wood than any other prep bat. A number of kids used wood this spring in their HS leagues -- most notably Gavin Cecchin (Mets pick in 1st).

    • Just one add on IP.  Just looked, Kirby only pitched 67 innings last season, over 15 starts.  Seems likely limited, he missed a month due to a shoulder injury in 2021?  I'd see this as a similar use case as GRod.  He's at 152 IP this year.
    • Sorry, Denoyer wasn't part of that 5, but in my mind he was. The top 4, plus Denoyer and Mav is what I meant
    • He pitched 103 last year.  So an ideal season would have him at 125-140 this year.  Understand he didn't get there, but wouldn't you like to try to get 150 out of him next year so he's still there for stretch run/postseason assuming that's needed?  How do you make that feasible?
    • Pitchers to cut/leavingFA Anthony Castro Chris Ellis - 60 Day IL Logan Gillaspie Louis Head Jordan Lyles Jake Reed Beau Susler Chris Vallimont Spenser Watkins Cathers, IF Cut/LeavingFA Robinson Chirinos Cam Gallagher Tyler Nevin  Rougned Odor Jesus Aguilar I am going to give a spot to Diaz, its AAA Depth and we can always cut him after ST. With Means coming of the 60 Day, I think that puts us at 12 Open Spots I'm probably only protecting 6 MILB guys, so I would go into my offseason with 6 open spots and start crushing the Waiver Wire (the 5 listed in the original post plus Maverick (I know its slim, but we really have almost no catching depth in the milb and we have to protect it even if its a 1% chance hes selected in the Rule V) There's a part of me that wants to keep a couple of the pitchers listed above, but I believe many would pass through waivers and those that don't can easily be replaced on the waiver wire. That's probably where we could find some more catcher depth too, but I'd use most of those spots on more waiver wire pitching like last year.      
    • This is a huge winter for Mateo.  he should have confidence enough to put in the work to get better for next year.  The Orioles gave him a chance.  He took it.   Now put in the work Mr. Mateo.
    • Well, if you miss on 4th down, you assume they get it at the 2.  The idea that they got it on the 20 changes everything. I don’t mind the decision, after reading more and hearing more explanations.  I still think he should have taken the points but ultimately, I think at best they go into OT if they took the points and more than likely lose in regular time.
    • I mean, I can see being upset that they didn’t play well and blew the playoff chance.  I just don’t get why it matters that it was to division teams.  I’m more upset that they lost to Detroit and Oakland, teams that were far inferior.
