Notes on Cody Sedlock, Isaiah White, and... others.

Cody Sedlock, RHP, Baltimore Orioles (Short-Season Aberdeen)
For the Ten Pack this week I wrote about Justin Dunn, who like Sedlock, was a first-round college pick in this past month's draft. Ideally Ten Pack entries, and certainly a Notes from the Field piece, should give some indication into what I think the player is at the highest level. That's the bare minimum you can ask for, right? At least make a call. The problem is with these recent college draftees is: what exactly are you looking at?

It's the East of the East. Like that Jean-Claude Van Damme movie except about baseball. Sort of.

Last week the Eastern League held its all-star game, and Adam McInturff and Grant Jones were there to take in the festivities. Below are their notes on some of the most prominent stars from the Eastern Division. In case you missed it, they wrote about the best of the West yesterday, and you can find that piece here.

Notes on those who made an impression from the West representatives in the latest minor league all-star game.

Last week the Eastern League held its all-star game, and Adam McInturff and Grant Jones were there to take in the festivities. Today we’ll examine the standouts from the league’s Western Division, with notes on the best of the East coming forth tomorrow.

Notes from the Field: The Futures Game: US Roster

Wilson Karaman

Notes on every player from the US Roster

The U.S. fielded a deep team bursting with top-end talent, including five of the top 18 prospects in our mid-season update, and for most of the game it looked like they were well poised to ride solid pitching and Alex Bregman’s awesomeness to glorious victory before the wheels fell off late.

Here are notes on each player who performed for the Stars and Stripes on Sunday. For reports on the triumphant World Team roster, Chris Crawford covered them bases yesterday.

Notes on Angel Perdomo, Colin Moran, Wes Rogers, and more.

Carlos Ramirez, RHP, Toronto Blue Jays (High-A Dunedin)
An outfielder turned pitcher, Ramirez has a big arm and has taken well to the mound thus far. With a 6-foot-5, 205-pound body, Ramirez pitches from the stretch with a compact arm action, fair arm speed, and a three-quarters slot. His fastball comes in at 93-95 with some sink. His slider was his go-to secondary with good depth and moderate tilt at 85-87. He is still raw but has an intriguing arm and hasn't pitched for that long. —Steve Givarz

Notes on every player from the World roster.

On paper, the World Team looked inferior to team USA in terms of quality and quantity. Paper is stupid and outdated which is why we have computers and digital cameras. The World Team dominated the stars and stripes by a score of 11-3, and they looked darn good in the process.

A look at the pitchers from the Carolina League All-Star Game, from the perspective of a single look, and the benefit of a half-season of play.

Last week, we brought you the batters of the Carolina/California League All-Star Game, with first-look notes from Wilson Karaman, and season-to-date thoughts from Adam McInturff. Today we cover the arms in the game for the Carolina League All-Stars, with season-to-date thoughts when we had them. —Craig Goldstein

A look at the batters from the Carolina League All-Star Game, from the perspective of a single look, and the benefit of a half-season of play.

We have the good fortune of having BP Prospect Team members all over the country, taking in games and giving you eyewitness reports and notes from the field. Unfortunately, they don’t always get to travel, which is why the California/Carolina League All-Star Game is always a treat for some of our team, as they get a brief look at guys they’d never otherwise see. Wilson Karaman was the beneficiary this year, as California hosted, and he took copious notes on guys he normally doesn’t get to catch. We’re presenting you with those notes and providing the backup of Adam McInturff’s season-to-date looks at many of the same players. This gives you the benefit of seeing what we’re able to take away in one viewing, and the nuances that bear out over a longer set of looks. We’ll start with hitters and tackle pitchers in a second installment. —Craig Goldstein

Notes on Derek Hill, Isan Diaz, P.J. Conlon, and more.

P.J. Conlon, LHP, New York Mets (Low-A Columbia)
If you want to see what a true major-league-quality out pitch looks like, sit behind home plate for Conlon’s starts and wait for the cambio. Conlon’s changeup consistently hits plus with huge depth on the arm-side fade, excellent deception and feel. It eats South Atlantic League hitters alive and will probably munch on upper-level competition. The rest of his arsenal is less certain for the upper levels. His fastball sits 87-89 and touches 90 with minimal movement and life above the thighs. It shows some sink and plane when spotted around the knees, and he’s able to command it to that spot fairly well, which is something he’ll need to do consistently at higher levels. He mixes in a cutter at 86-88 with moderate cut and slight depth. He also tosses in a slider at 76-80 with fringe-average ability when spun tight with decent tilt, and a show-me curveball in the low-70s that gets telegraphed. Conlon has a severe head whack and spine tilt in his delivery, yet he repeats his quirky motion and arm slot, and it feeds the deception on his changeup. He projects for above-average command despite the delivery. He lacks arsenal punch and depth outside his changeup that could limit him to relief in the future, but that changeup is going to play. —David Lee
