Eyeballing the 2020 Draft Class in early June…..
Let’s comb through it with some initial thoughts…
Pete Crow Armstrong
Hyped as a potential top-ten pick by Internet draft gurus……which is misleading and perhaps make’s me a villain for not agreeing. Handcuffed by some concerns at this stage. Candidate to not get his asking number and go to school.
Have a Rusty Greer comp here.
Mirror image of Brendan Rogers at the plate. Plays like Clint Frazier. Top 10 pick?
Boarded the launch angle bandwagon? I see a different swing from last yr.
I have a Josh Bard comp at this stage
The foot speed gives me some pause but the swing has big league plastered all over it….anxious to see more this summer.
Reminiscent of a young Ryan Howard.
Body, swing and running actions scream Juan Encarnación at me….
(didn’t participate in event) But based on previous looks I see shades of Chris Young in the delivery. More velo coming ??? IDK
Reminds me of Brennen Davis, Cubs 2nd RD pick in 2018 – but more advanced at this stage.
Moving up the food chain…..Imagine Cole Winn or Chris Paddack.
The arm speed strikes me as JJ Goss.
late 1st RD/2nd RD in the mold of Joe Panik, Nick Franklin & Cory Spangenberg
At this stage of the draft cycle I have a Paul Lo Duca comp here.
I see a lot of “Cargo” in him.
Super-competitive dude – In terms of effort and ability to hold up Josh Wolf comes to mind.
Sneaky – candidate to make significant leaps
The high school version of Pete Alonso
Until the Next Showcase ……
