Kevin Grendell in round 11

Kevin Grendell in round 11

There is a lot of comment about how teams dealt with the new system this year, including a Scott Boras rant in USA Today, but it seems that a lot of highly ranked players were drafted in Round 11, as sort of a new overslot strategy. (Explaining this is not easy.)

Anyway, the scout here seems to like Rendell as a highly projectable high school lefty, who once struck out 20 in a game.

I wonder if he was the Orioles' version of that new strategy?

I thought you could not go over 100k after round 10?

The new system will favor those organizations with larger pools, they can really work it if they are smart. Not know anything about the guys we drafted I'm still wondering if we worked Bud's game properly.
