With No. 21 pick, O's select HS LHP D.L. Hall from Valdosta, Ga.

Big fan of uber-athletic new Orioles LHP D.L. Hall.

3/4 slot with repeatable arm action...good vertical and horizontal plane at times. Decent Break, real live arm when he needs it.

I would not have selected Hall, but he is a very respectable selection.


@CamdenDepot 2m2 minutes ago

To be clear, Hall is not a safe pick. Loud tools. Good ways off. Very high ceiling. Secondary closer option. Low floor though.

Athletic and projectable HS lefty. Thought the O's were going the college route, but he has a lot of raw arm talent, HS arms are risky tho

@danieljsanchez_

Haven't followed closely this year, but by most accounts high upside with risk. Not the direction I was expecting but seems a solid pick.

 

@greg_goldstein1

He fell a little bit, don't think the O's thought he was gonna be there

Athletic delivery and can gain a few ticks on his FB too. Offspeed stuff has potential, but obviously needs work. Control is there as well.

Can't complain about the pick. Get a top 15 talent with the 21st pick?

I'll take that. That could easily have been a BPA situation. Nothing wrong with that.

More Rajsich on Hall - "We project seeing him in our starting rotation in the near future."

Like...tomorrow night?   Could he be any worse than what we've got going out there now?

Rajsich thinks we're going to see a HS pitcher in the Orioles starting rotation in the near future.  

 

Just seems like a silly thing to say.

I wonder how soon it'll be before DL goes on the....DL.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Poor kid - only shot he has at major league stardom is if we trade or cut him.

 

Call me a pessimist.

Lol. Love it. Sad, but so true. Bundy looking like a possible rare exception. And a fellow high schooler, who endured his DL woes and has made it out the other side. Good omens?

I get the pessimism based on the O's Development history, but there doesn't seem to be any questions regarding his talent.
Every prospect is unique. Let's see what happens.  Myself, I'm pleased to get a guy with some clear ceiling.

There is no such thing as a safe bet at #21, so I'm very much on board with them going for a high risk high reward guy who if he hits could be one of the best pitchers in the draft.  What I don't have much of a feel for is if he is good enough to merit going overslot which means we'll need to go underslot with several other top-10 picks to fit him within our bonus pool.  Just based on the BA rankings for the other two guys we drafted last night, it looks like this already may be happening.

 

Low to mid-90s LHP with a great curveball sounds a lot like Erik Bedard to me, who I used to love watch pitch despite his flaws.

Clayton Kershaw was once a high ceiling HS, LHP.

 

So was Tyler Matzek.

 

Short version, you know nothing Jon Snow, so check back in a couple years.
