7/06/19

Baker opened eyes in his game against Silver Sluggers Blue. The SHB Kards shortstop reached base and scored during both of his at bats collecting a barreled single to left field and a walk. At the plate works from a slightly open stance and gets his hands to the ball quickly. Showed above average skills in the field. He displayed good range to both sides laterally, making plays on both sides of second base. Also came in on the ball well and worked with good footwork and soft hands. Sealed the win with a strong throw across the diamond on a slow roller. His physical ability is paired well with above average baseball smarts and instincts. Baker projects to be a high follow quickly. As talented as he his on defense and at the plate, he might be an even better prospect on the mound. He pitched on Friday against the Milwaukee Angels and showed a really loose and easy arm that sat in the upper-70s all game, touching 80 mph a couple times. His fastball featured hard run, advanced action for his age, and he mixed in a sweeping slider that has swing-and-miss potential as he continues to develop and sharpen the pitch
