MLB Pipeline's Jim Callis, Orioles catching prospect Adley Rutschman and Ravens Hayden Hurst and Gus Edwards joined Glenn Clark Radio recently. Check out what they had to say.
"I think you could make the argument, if you wanted to grade based strictly on tools and position scarcity, and you didn't care about any kind of performance [or] track record, you could probably put him right up near the top. I'd probably still take [Tampa Bay Rays shortstop prospect] Wander Franco ... one, but you could probably argue just on pure tools Adley Rutschman two, I think. You're talking about a switch-hitting catcher who tore up college baseball for two years in a row ... and we're talking about a guy who can definitely catch, good receiver with a plus arm."
- MLB Network and MLBPipeline.com analyst Jim Callis July 10 on why Adley Rutschman may already be the second-best prospect in all of baseball
"We've got to make it to the Super Bowl. Point blank. Period."
- Ravens running back Gus Edwards July 17 on his expectations for the season
"Once I get back on the field and I'm playing at the level I was playing at in the preseason before everything happened, I think people are going to get back on my side and kind of understand why I was taken when I was taken. I'm going to continue to do what I do, and again, I don't worry about it too much because I know how good I am on the football field. Once I get out there this year, I'm going to be able to cut it loose and get back to where I was and kind of take that next step."
- Ravens tight end Hayden Hurst June 19 on looking to prove doubters wrong during his second season
"People put a lot of expectations on me, but I always feel like they're not even close to the ones I put on myself. So, I think that makes it easier for me, just because I always stick to my goals and I know my processes. It's always just to be the best person and best player I can be and work as hard as I can to get there. If I'm doing that, I don't have to worry about anything else. I'm probably harder on myself than anyone else is."
