Does anyone know where Max Foody was assigned?
And, I guess Trey Williams is hopeless??
Yes, Williams is hopeless unless he’ll sign for 100k. We were over the cap before this signing (but this sign won’t put us over the pick loss cap).
Actually, if the Cards sign Heyer for slot or less, the Cards can offer about $243,000 plus anything less than slot they accomplished with Heyer, for any one of the remaining unsigned picks. Once one of the unsigned picks accepted the $143,000 they have left without losing a draft pick, THEN they would be limited to $100,000 for any other remaining picks that wanted to sign.
So they don’t sign Trey Williams; they selected shortstops with picks 4, 13, 14, and 15. Aside from Williams, only seven other players will not have been signed, none higher than a 22nd round pick.
What’s his deal again?
Foody, a Floridian, is set to join the Gulf Coast Redbirds, a team that a site called Future Redbirds should be paying more attention to. The team has won 10 straight, mostly due to its overpowering pitching, and is the class of the league.
I hereby appoint Mike G the official unofficial Future Redbirds correspondent for the Gulf Coast Redbirds. Mike, we’ll expect daily reports in the comments section updating us on your team. Thanks for volunteering!
The GCL is a bunch of glorified scrimmages. The stats from these games mean very close to nothing.
And this insight is based on what exactly? The teams may play in the afternoon, but these contests give every appearance of being real games with real box scores played by real Cardinal prospects under regular baseball rules. The performances clearly help determine who gets promoted and who gets sent home. The statistics are there to be divined in the usual way by the usual prospect geeks. The disregard by a website purporting to be interested in Future Redbirds remains puzzling.
Thanks for the offer (I’m not sure that you have the authority to make it), but I’ll pass. I’ve already jinxed them into a loss yesterday! Actually, the team is well-covered by the Cardinals edition of Scout.com, but the comments of the prospects geeks on this board would be interesting.
Nice scouting report on Heyer.
“Because they’re from the same state and both get by on command and deception over stuff, Heyer is often compared to Arizona State ace Brady Rodgers. Heyer is more physical at 6-foot-2 and 211 pounds. He’s also more aggressive on the mound, showing a better ability to attack hitters and a little bit of a mean streak. Even with those points in his favor, Heyer doesn’t have Rodgers’ four-pitch arsenal. Heyer pitches with a fastball in the 86-89 mph range and an average slider. He shows an occasional changeup and curveball, but mostly sticks to his two main pitches and relies on his above-average control and command. Heyer has some funkiness to his delivery, but shows exceptional work ethic, competitiveness and toughness. Heyer has been very successful as a starter at Arizona–he ranked second in the Pac-10 in strikeouts last year and ranks second again this year–but scouts believe his two-pitch repertoire and aggressive demeanor profile better in the bullpen as a pro.”
The GCL doesn’t play every day and I have not found a homepage to get the Cardinal schedule.
Here’s the schedule for GCL http://www.milb.com/schedule/index.jsp?sid=milb&cid=1370
AZ’s Goold link isn’t working for me, so just in case anyone else is having the same problem, here it is: http://www.stltoday.com/sports/baseball/professional/birdland/cards-reach-deal-with-sixth-rounder-heyer/article_c1e73e12-ca8f-11e1-998e-0019bb30f31a.html
I must admit, hearing that this guy only dials it up to 89 leaves me somewhat lukewarm (so to speak) about him. For RHP there is just no substitute for a power arm, unless he can learn a knuckleball.
I watched the games he pitched in the college WS and I was amazed at how he kept getting out of innings! Gave up a bunch of hits but stayed in the game and got k’s. One game he pitched into the 10th inning and I think he threw morw than 130 pitches.
