Keith Law on Westburg after seeing him in person.

 

• Jordan Westburg was Baltimore’s second pick in 2020, taken 30th overall, out of Mississippi State, but started the year with Low-A Delmarva, despite his experience and age (22). Since a promotion to High A, he’s hit .298/.398/.484, playing mostly shortstop along with some third base. He really extends his arms through contact and seems to hit everything hard when he hits it at all, with very good plate coverage and a two-strike approach where he widens his stance (like Juan Soto, if a bit less extreme) and drops the stride. His strikeout rate in High A has been fine, under 24 percent, although in my one game with him, I saw him cut through at least four fastballs in or near the zone. He played surprisingly well at shortstop, but I’d bet on him ending up at third base in the majors because he’ll be bumped aside by a plus defender.

Like at Aberdeen, he started slow after being promoted to Bowie. Finished strong and the OPS was up to .757 to end the year. Would assume he starts '22 at Bowie but not out of the question he starts at Norfolk. Tracking to play in Baltimore next year.

Struggles are fine.  The Game is about adjustments and if you never go through them, the Majors is a difficult place to figure out certain pieces of it.

 

Everyone is in a hurry to get guys up, dealing with failure is fine.  You need to fight your way out of it, but development is a lot of pieces.
