Meyer who went 3rd overall has a smaller frame and being a guy who hits the mid 90's there's concerns he may not hold up physically.  Lacy who went 4th has command issues which can be hard to get over as you move through the minors and face better hitters.  Hancock who went 6th has a lower ceiling than Lacy but a higher floor.  Crochet who was taken right after Detmers started 13 of 36 appearances in his college career and was injured at the beginning of the last season.  He's a guy who is getting drafted on potential because of his size and what teams hope he an be which is a starter.  One analysis says if he doesn't cut it there he could be a good setup man but that's not what you're hoping for from the 11th pick.  Sounds like Detmers might have a lower ceiling than many or all of these guys but the highest floor while the consensus is that he could be a 3-4 starting in the majors by next season.  After our luck with pitchers I'll be thrilled if any they draft this year are up and producing with the big club in the next 1-2 years especially if one of them is starting. 

Sean Newcomb thinks you’re full of shit

Few things that I've noticed about Detmer while watching these clips.

1. He has pin-point command. Catcher sets up at a specific spot and he hits that that spot with pin- point control. That plus command (60)

2. Seems like each year he got stronger snd stronger, added more velo as well. he was in the 88-91 range in 2019 and jumped to 90-94 in 2020, that's a positive sign. Can he had more velo? maybe or maybe not.

3. He has the ability to hit 93-95 when he needs to, and he can pitch up in the zone. Which makes his FB/Curve that much better. 

4. There still a bit more development left, think his change and cutter/slider can get better. 

5. The added Deception, make his Fb look firm and faster. Its get on hitter. its a 55 grade pitch, what with the add deception and his ability to maintain in the 92/93 range, its could be a 60 grade pitch. 

 

What i've seen from his change-up I honestly think that may end up being his best pitch and that's not taking away from his curve. I think that his curveball is a plus pitch and could be a plus-plus...

Scout's take on Detmers: “He’s going to pitch as long as he wants to . . . Huge courage, huge compete tool, very unaffected by any environment. Strike-thrower, makes big pitches, not scared . . . I don’t even look at his stuff—they don’t hit him."

I thought that said "huge complete tool" for a second, was like wow this scout isn't pulling any punches

Has there been any interview with this guy yet?

There was one during the draft last night.  It was...awkward.  I mentioned earlier that he seemed Trout-like in that regard.

Or did you mean others beyond that?

EDIT: Here's a link to a not-so-high-quality version of the ESPN interview: https://www.channel1450.com/video/reid-detmers-interview-on-espn/

I missed it, but I'm surprised there hasn't been anything beyond that.

I have no strong feelings at this time about young Mr. Detmers, or any of the other three picks made by the Angels in the mini-draft.

I'll take a more serious look the next time they have the opportunity to actually play games, probably late 2021.

My recurring disturbing thoughts about top Angels pitching draft picks echo in my mind: Seth Etherton, Chris Bootcheck, Joe Torres,  Cam Bedrosian and Sean Newcomb.

And all those position all-stars not named Trout.

They’ve drafted good position players and a few good pitchers. Finley being the best, then Weaver. Then.... 

But they drafted Salmon, Edmonds, Anderson, Erstad, Glaus, The core of the 02 team. They drafted Trout, but also Kendrick, Napoli, Fletcher, etc.
