Players to Watch
David Baker –After registering 20 strikeouts in 15.2 innings last season, Baker made himself a definite player to watch this season. He pounds the zone with a low 90’s fastball from a deceptive delivery.
Jarret Martin – The Orioles drafted Martin in 2008 but failed to sign him, later signing him as a member of their 2009 draft class. He’s an intriguing lefty with a fastball that touches 91 and a slightly above-average curveball.
Michael Ohlman – It’s clear the Sally League was too advanced for Ohlman and a move to the Appalachian League should allow him to settle down and put up some good numbers.
Brenden Webb – A toolsy outfielder selected in the 30th round of the 2009 draft, Webb is a potential 5 tool player. I came away impressed after watching him on three different occasions at spring training. He’s a patient hitter, with above-average speed and excellent defense from any outfield position.
- Ohlman and Webb are really the players to watch here. Both signed for over-slot deals in the 2009 draft.
