Over the next few weeks we we will be counting down the 2018 caldendar year with a look at the top 20 viewed profiles of 2018. After combing through our google analytics, we have compiled a list of the twenty most visited profiles, by you, the readers, in 2018.

The tall, lanky southpaw Luke Baker (Buchholz, 2020) slots in at No. 19 in our countdown. Baker was a member of Team Florida at the PBR Future Games this summer at Grand Park in Westfield, IN, just outside Indianapolis. His performance at the Future Games helped him land an offer from the University of Mississippi. On September 23rd, Baker committed to Ole Miss and coincidentally enough, that was also the day his profile received its most single day views.

Scouting Report

09/23/18- Committed to the University of Mississippi.

08/04/18- Uncommitted, an ultra projectable 6-foot-6, 196 pound left hander, Baker continues to be on the upswing. The frame continues to fill out, while the delivery continues to become more in sync and on time a separation to release. He repeats well and filled up the zone for his three innings. He showed ability to compete, with three average to above average pitches. The fastball worked 85-86 mph early and commanded down to both sides of the plate. Attacked in with the pitch to right handers. Has a feel for both offspeed pitches, the curveball has quality shape at 71-73 mph and showed a feel for an above average changeup at 77 mph. Overall, he continues to make big strides, shows present feel to pitch and overall an extremely high ceiling.
