What am I misunderstanding? That he's going to break out of it any day now and prove worthy of being a #1 pick or a reasonable facsimile ? Or that he threw a lot of innings in college and there was concern about that among scouts? Or maybe he's not that good?
I'm having a difficult time believing you are this obtuse, but I'll try.
This isn't comparable to say, Hobgood, who was a reach. Sedlock was a good pick for that part of the draft, had no injury history or flags, and in his first season was pretty good (SSS warning). Beyond that, this isn't the NFL draft; there are salary demand/draft pool factors to consider, along with likelihood they'll go (or go back) to college.
You've heard of TINSTAAP right? There's a reason for that. Pitchers break without warning or reason. Don't confuse your disappointment for condemnation.
The Orioles do many things wrong, but drafting isn't one of them (lately).
