  1. I consider this a hot take because I'm making a bold assumption that Stewart will continue to hit like he did post-all star break in 2017 and like he has so far in 5 games here in 2018 with the Tides. But based on the adjustments I saw him make when I watched him several times last August, I think the offensive breakthrough is for real. He brings a patient and disciplined approach that the big league club is sorely lacking. Even if he were to come up and hit .240, chances are he'd still be among the leaders in OBP on the team because he's a walk machine. Not to mention for a big guy, he can move on the base paths. He's stolen 26 and 20 bases respectively the last two seasons and was only caught 4 times at Bowie last year. I'll definitely be tuning into to some Norfolk games over the next few months to monitor his progress. If he continues to hit though, I think Orioles have to take a look at what he can do at the big league level. Especially once Santander's rule five status expires.
  2. Yea, my theory is they just need an extra arm after bullpen got taxed over the weekend and he was the next man up on the 40 man roster. Could also be viewed as an audition to see how close he is to being ready.
  3. Orioles adding to their outfield depth today with the signing of former Blue Jays outfielder Michael Saunders. Yes, it was just two years ago that he made the all-star team. https://www.google.com/amp/www.baltimoresun.com/sports/orioles/bs-sp-orioles-saunders-20180402-story,amp.html
  4. Can't ask for a better start than this. http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2017/08/07/orioles-tim-beckham-named-american-league-player-of-the-week/
  5. I would be interested in attending and should be available on the 23rd.
  6. Manny Machado in particular is finally heating up with a .360 batting average over the last 30 days. Some consistent starting pitching would go a long way down the stretch here if the offense keeps doing its part. http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/orioles/blog/bs-sp-second-half-offense-20170804-story.html
  7. Rule Five draftees must be an active member of the 25 man roster for at least 90 days. O's need to bring him up soon and DFA Gentry. At this point, Santander won't meet that requirement. But, the more days they can have him active the better. That way, they would only need to carry him on the active roster for maybe the month of April next year before they can option him.
  8. I'm guessing because Matt Duffy is returning soon
  9. Rich Dubroff makes his case for why trading Britton makes before the Monday July 31 deadline makes sense https://www.pressboxonline.com/2017/07/25/five-reasons-the-orioles-could-trade-zach-britton
  10. Good article from Baltimore Baseball that highlights Duquette's trade history: http://www.baltimorebaseball.com/2017/07/24/dan-duquette-fared-trading-veterans-prospects-sell-deals-mlb-career/

    Zac Lowther

    From Baseball America this morning... Zac Lowther, lhp, Orioles. A supplemental second-round pick from Xavier, Lowther isn't overpowering (87-92 mph) but pounds the zone while deception helps his offerings play up. He's off to a terrific start at short-season Aberdeen, including Tuesday, when he delivered five, two-hit innings against Lowell (Red Sox). Lowther is 1-0, 0.63 with 19 strikeouts and just two walks in 14.1 innings.
  12. OF Austin Hays Named Orioles’ Organizational Player of the Month BOWIE, Md.- Bowie Baysox OF Austin Hays was named the Baltimore Orioles Organizational Player of the Month for June, as announced by the club’s Player Development Department on Monday afternoon. Frederick LHP Keegan Akin was named the Organizational Pitcher of the Month. In 26 games between Frederick and Bowie, Hays hit .373 with eight home runs and 22 RBI during the month. The Jacksonville University product was promoted to Bowie on June 22 and made his Double-A debut in a game at Binghamton that night. The promotion came on the heels of a 5-5 performance in his final game with the Keys on June 18. Hays hit safely in all eight of his games with the Baysox in June and hit his first Eastern League home run in game one of a doubleheader on June 25 at Erie. The Daytona Beach, Fla., native went 4-5 with a home run and four RBI in his final game of the month, a 9-3 win over Altoona on June 29. Hays is the third Baysox player to receive an Orioles monthly award this season after LHP John Means and LHP Tanner Scott were named the Organizational Pitcher of the Month in April and May, respectively.
