Anyone see Bauer?


Recommended Posts

I watched him some last night and again today on the weather delay. He looks pretty solid. Low 90's fastball I think I saw touch 94. Curveball looks like a plus pitch. Slider is inconsistent but looks like a decent future offering. I haven't had much of a chance to see the changeup unless I am mistaking his 2 seamer for a changeup(which has been coming in in the high 80's). But, he seems to know how to pitch. He also looks very young and to have some physical projection left. Could have better command, but this is just 1 game at the end of the year which means he could be a bit tired....

What did you guys think?

Was it just me or did this kid's delivery and curveball remind you of Tim Lincecum?

It had some Lincecum-ness to it, but its not as drastic as Lincecum. Lincecum repeats his delivery though, Bauer I haven't seen enough of to comment, but he still gets into good throwing position IMO.....

He has had the "Little Lincy" nickname (or something along those lines) going back to at least 2009. Sorry, I just don't remember the exact name.

I really wish I had a chance to see Jungmann and Cole pitch live so I could have a better idea of the top arms in the upcoming draft. Wouldn't mind seeing Gray either, sounds like his stuff is electric.....

Where do you live? Head down to Cary for a week during USA tryouts and you could see all of them.

Here's Bauer between innings last July against Guatemala

I live in southern VA(Newport News), about 30 minutes from VA Beach and about an HR from the NC/VA border.....Where in Carolina are they doing the try outs? It'd be awesome to get a chance to see all these guys in 1 place to watch....

Tryouts in Cary,NC would be at the USA Baseball National Training Complex at 200 Brooks Park Lane, Cary NC. Try a google search (USA Baseball Complex) and use the satellite view to see the complex. The field at far upper right is the main field for major events although all fields may be used depending on the amonunt of participants.
