Josh Hader 2013 rookie season

Josh Hader 2013 rookie season

PostPost #1 by Old Sneakers » April 10th, 2013, 2:41 pm

Name: Josh Hader
Born: 04/07/1994(Age 19)
Birthplace: Millersville, MD
Height: 6' 3"
Weight: 160
Bats/Throws: L/L
Position: LHP

Following the release of the Orioles Top 20 prospects (pre-season) in which Josh Hader was ranked 13th. I dismissed the ranking as a reflection on how poor our farm system really was and that Hader was another feel good "Local kid does good" type story. However on 4-8-2013 adonijah1510 reported on Hader here: http://orioles-nation.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1954

For his first career start Hader was impressive to say the least. I thought we as a group might follow his first season along and see how he fairs. For more information please see the above and below link.

3 guys on Delmarva that I think are ready or nearly ready to move up are...Hader / Hobgood / Christian Walker

Because of Hobgood and Walker's ages they almost have to have solid years at Frederick to be taken seriously as top prospects.

I would definitely say the same goes for Bridwell, he's only 4 months younger than Walker.

One thing that I noticed, it seems that the top 50 prospect is more of a list of who is the youngest on the team. Only 4 out of the top 25 prospects were born before 1990 (Tyler wilson, Johnny Ruettiger, Mike Belfiore, and Dan Klein). There are 13 out of the top 50 prospects were born before 1990. Just an observation here, but it seems like its almost a must to be 22 or younger to make the list.

That's probably a reflection of the fact that players that appear to be on track to hit the ML by the age of 23 usually rank above the rest. That fact is one of the reasons that college players can't afford to lose a pro season due to injury poor production.
