The Orioles selected Sebastian Vader in the 18th round of the 2010 MLB draft. The 6' 4'' righty received a fairly hefty signing bonus of $150,000, which shows the Orioles feel he has potential. They are hoping that this 18th rounder could be a diamond in the rough.
Vader has a lot of good things going for him. He's one of the more athletic pitchers you will see. He played quarterback in high school and has a good pitcher's frame. To sum him up, he has all the "looks" of a good pitcher. Topping off things to like with him is the name. I wish my name was cool like Sebastian Vader.
I was able to see Vader pitch on Friday (7/13/12) and what follows are my observations.
Ask me any questions/thoughts!
