Keith Law saw a Shorebirds game last week, and gave his thoughts on a few players:

 

Baltimore’s eighth-round pick from 2021, catcher Creed Willems, who got a well over-slot bonus of $1 million, was overmatched at the plate and, more concerning, looks totally out of shape.

It is disappointing to see a young kid, who the front office seemed high on, not be able to get in shape.

Im sure they are going to expect that to change over the offseason. Has to learn how to be a pro but hes also still a teen.

Yeah I'm not a doctor but I feel like you can still be uhh chubby and still produce in the majors but Creed just had some really awkward looking swings but there certainly seemed like there was some power when he ran into one

He’s so young, the fact they started him at Delmarva this season and never sent him to the FCL says a lot about what they think about him.

Bad numbers overall but he's been a lot better in the past month after he missed a couple weeks in July. Since 7/24 in 20 g and 72 PAs:

 

.270/.333/.492 .825 OPS, 122 wRC+, 4 2B, 2 3B, 2 HR.

If you're out of shape in your teens, you're hopeless as an adult unless you go through a drastically lifestyle change.

That was my concern too, although he has plenty of time to right things.
