2080 Baseball: 51st 

https://2080baseball...er-notes-51-75/

 

51. Jordan Westburg (SS/3B, Mississippi State Univ. | Video)

Tall and lean, Westburg was built similarly to 2019 first rounder Braden Shewmake (Braves), last summer, but has since added 10 pounds of good weight. After slashing .299/.408/.466 for the Bulldogs last spring, he showed pretty well with wood in the Cape, slugging .516 with four homeruns for Hyannis. Utilizing a simple load that includes a toe tap timing mechanism, Westburg stays balanced while his bat accelerates through the zone. There’s some swing and miss in the profile, evidenced by a 22.5 K% in Starkville. He moves pretty well for a taller shortstop, with an decent chance to remain there long term.

So we took a top 15 pick with number 2, and a guy who didn't crack the top 50 with 30.

Jordan Westburg has as much upside as anybody. He's got everything to be a big leaguer.

Saw Loftus say he should stick at SS.

Hope he’s not Greiner.

I don't understand the comment.  Grenier had more questions about his bat and less about his defense.

 

Westburg seems like the opposite of that, a guy that could play SS but slides over to 3B and he gets to some offensive ceiling.

That does not seem like the video I'd use to show someone what a good player i am.

Greiner was a college SS taken in the same area of the draft and he sucks.

I’m hoping Westburg doesn’t repeat that. Not sure what you don’t get about that?

ok, I thought you were comparing the players, not the draft position.

 

Grenier is exactly what he is.  I thought the pick was a reach at the time but he's what he is.

I do not know anything about the kid, but Greiner was exactly what I thought of, when I saw the pick.

The Orioles do not seem the least bit worried about strikeouts.  Both picks around 20% K rate.
