6.21.15 - 6-foot-3, 210-pound, right-handed pitcher. Currently working back from a broken non-pitching hand. Threw a bullpen between games yesterday. Works from a high ¾ arm angle with a long arm action. Drop and drive delivery with a slight pause at balance point before driving to the plate. Online delivery with good balance throughout and a square landing. Fastball sat 84-86 mph flashing cut at times. Changeup was hard at 79-81 mph. Curveball was inconsistent at 64-67 mph with 11-5 shape.

1.18.15 - 6-foot-2, 210 pound strong, wide shouldered 1B/RHP hits from a wide base, short stride, strides open slightly, some stiffness to slightly uphill swing, strength present at impact, above average 85 mph exit velocity. Defensively, arm strength present across the diamond, 84 mph from short, over-the-top arm slot, soft hands fielding, clean exchanges, athletically fields his position. Ran a 7.44 60. On the mound, fastball sat 86-87 mph from long, high ¾ arm slot, regular effort, leans over slightly at balance point, drop/drive delivery, shoulders work downhill, lands hard at foot strike. 64-69 mph curveball struggled with consistent shape, also threw a 66-70 mph changeup. Baker has plenty of arm strength and is extremely physical. He could be a 90 mph arm within the next year.
