    View Draft Report
    Baker lacks a dominant pitch but is very steady and has four average or better offerings. He also has good size (6-foot-4, 190 pounds) and athleticism, throws strikes and did very well against wood bats in the Cape Cod League last summer. The combination should make him a supplemental first-round pick. He throws 88-93 with life on his fastball and backs it up with an advanced changeup and a slider with cutter action. He also has a knuckle-curve that hitters chase out of the strike zone. Baker profiles as a solid No. 3 starter on a big league contender. He's a proven winner who has survived pitching at Oklahoma State's Allie P. Reynolds Stadium, one of college baseball's more difficult environments.
