Moyer to Phillies
Moyer waives no-trade, shipped to Phillies for prospects.
RHP Andrew Baldwin, 24, on the Clearwater Thrashers (High-A)
RHP Andrew Barb, 22, on the Lakewood BlueClaws (Low-A)
(during the game the names were announced entirely differently – I’m fairly sure these are the corrected names)
From Corvalis and Redmond, respectively. Neither were ranked in Baseball America’s Top 10 prospects this year. Neither are on the Phillies’ 40-man roster.
Added later by Dave: Baldwin is the better bet here, despite being older and having the less impressive statistics. He’s a projection kid who hit 94 at times in college, has the classic pitchers frame, and is raw. He’s not anything close to a finished project, but adding a kid like this to the organization is exactly what a rebuilding team should be doing.
Even later add by Dave: Here’s MLB.com’s draft coverage page that has a link to Baldwin’s 6:00 video of him throwing at OSU. When they say he had “no windup”, they weren’t kidding.
