    Baker has had an interesting path the last few years. He was drafted out of Chipola (Fla.) JC by the Dodgers in the 16th round in 2019, but opted to not sign and instead went to Auburn, where he made six relief appearances and struggled to a 9.53 ERA in the shortened 2020 season. After that, Baker bounced back to Chipola, where he has once again shown scouts impressive stuff out of his 6-foot-3, 190-pound frame, but with below-average control. Baker sat in the 92-94 mph range this spring and ran his fastball up to 96 mph, and he flashed two breaking balls that both showed potential but lacked consistency. He’s also thrown a changeup infrequently. Baker pitched to a 3.45 ERA over 57.1 innings, with 92 strikeouts (14.4 K/9) and 34 walks (5.3 BB/9). He is a South Carolina commit.
