    BA Midseason Top 100

    Hunter Harvey was only ranked in BAs top 100 one year. In 2015 he was 68.
  2. Given Grenier's experience and limited power, his striking out 31% of the time in the Sally League is really bad. The pick after Grenier in the draft was Xavier Edwards who is 3 years younger and hitting .347 with 18 steals at the same position and level.
  3. A good percentage of the All Star team that was announced has already been promoted to AA so there are going to be a lot of additions. I would hope DL Hall gets added. He and Nolan Jones are the highest rated prospects in the Carolina League now and he would be fun to watch for an inning. Stevne Klimek was fortunate that the team was announced before he got roughed up last night

    Mike Baumann 2019

    I saw Baumann pitch against Myrtle Beach on May 21st. I had a good view of the scouts radar gun and his fastball was consistently in the mid 90s. Baumann was not getting strikes on anything but the fastball and as a result the Pelicans were fouling off a lot of pitches and he threw 90 pitches in 4.1 innings. I think the lack of strikes with off speed pitches is usually the issue when he struggles.

    The First Fifteen

    It looks like the Angels and Rockies are the only teams in the Pioneer League that have a higher level short season team. For most teams in the Pioneer League including the Brewers, it is the highest level available before full season ball.

    The First Fifteen

    The Pioneer League is equal to the NY Penn League. It was not a promotion.

    Tracking Ex Oriole Thread

    Granted it was in Colorado, but Parra was pretty good in 2017 and 2018. He is fine as a back up.
  8. MLB.com came out with its top 30 international prospect list. 28 of the 30 have a favorite which means they will likely be signing with that team unless they hit a last minute snag. None of the favorites are the Orioles. It is going to take a few years before the Orioles are able to sign the top 16 year olds and then years before they are ready for the majors. http://m.mlb.com/prospects/2019?list=int

    Carolina League Prospects

    Dansby Swanson got hurt in extended spring training after signing so he only played a few weeks in 2015. https://venomstrikes.com/2015/07/26/dansby-swanson-suffers-minor-facial-injury/ Last year, Nick Madrigal, played a week in the AZL, two weeks in full season in the Sally League and a month in the Carolina League. I would think Rutschman would have a similar schedule.

    Carolina League Prospects

    I would not typically include a player that is not in the organization when I do my previews. However, the Orioles have the 1st pick. Adley Rutschman is the consensus top ranked player in the draft. If he is the pick, It would seem to make sense that he would the last part of the season in Frederick. Rutschman is also probably a top 25 prospect in baseball and the possibility of him being on the Keys is more exciting than say his old college teammate, Cadyn Grenier or Jean Carlos Encarnacion.

    Carolina League Prospects

    Thanks for the suggestion. I went ahead and added the parent club.

    Carolina League Prospects

    Top 50 prospect ranking for the Carolina League in April includes 4 Orioles. https://www.carolinaleagueprospects.com/2019/05/aprils-top-47-prospects-in-carolina.html
  13. I did not see this thread until this morning. If the 9th inning had been an Orioles game that I was watching on tv a couple of years ago, my remote would of been in a lot of pieces.
