The PBR staff got our first look at Baker this January at our Preseason ID event in San Antonio, so it was great to get out and see him live against hitters during an early February scrimmage. On a day that was brutally cold and actually hailed, the Alabama commit struggled some with command but still showed plenty to like about the arm and stuff. Baker was 87-89 mph with the fastball and 74-77 with the slider. The fastball showed heavy sink and arm side action when it was right and the slider was a bit side to side but played well from the arm slot.

The wiry 6-foot-1 Baker was more than impressive on the day showing a strong fastball/slider mix, as well as a workable changeup as his third pitch. The Alabama commit was controlled through his delivery and repeated it well, also showing a quick arm, throwing from a low ¾ slot. The slot allows his FB/SL combo to work quite well together. The fastball averaged 89.2 mph on the day, with late arm side action, while the slider worked at 74-75 mph tunneling well with the fastball. There was a lot to like at an early look at another premium arm out of Lake Travis High School.
