Tony-OH

2013 Minor League Depth Chart

Recommended Posts

Nice Tony! This is great to look at. I'd love to ask particulare questions on players once I've reviewed it more thoroughly.

Real quick, it looks like you have Joel Hutter as SS at Aberdeen and as UTL at Frederick.

This is great Tony, I really appreciate you putting this together. Just another reason of many of why I love the OH!
Thanks. Yeah, I was just looking for someone to put into Aberdeen. At 23-years old, I think Hutter will get a utility job higher in the system. Aberdeen is tricky because the draft will fill a lot of spots.

Very nice work. Thanks.

Man - Bowie's going to be stacked this year. I'm looking forward to hitting some games over there! Thanks Tony.

I tell you what, that Norfolk team is going to be pretty darn good as well. You can really tell the depth DD has added to the organization at the upper levels.

Is there inside word that Mike Wright will make the Norfolk rotation? He was pretty mediocre in his half season at Bowie last year and got rocked in the Arizona Fall League. Natural progression would seem to be at least starting the year in Bowie.

Wright could very well go back to Bowie but with Redmond being claimed, I think he's the natural guy to fill out the rotation at Norfolk. The Orioles liked what they saw from Wright despite the mediocre at best numbers at Bowie last year so I see him getting the nod to Norfolk as long as his spring goes ok in minor league camp.

Dickerson is wasted at DH. He is probably the best outfielder of any of the AAA guys.

He'll be in that outfield rotation. I had to stick someone in there, but they'll almost certainly rotate those guys in the outfield and in the DH spot.

Tony, this is a really great snapshot of where the organization is right now, thanks! Any more info on Mychal Givens? I was somewhat excited about him when we drafted him - as I recall, a raw but very promising physical specimen - and a SS? But suddenly, he's vying for a relief pitching role in the low minors after raking in the Australian Baseball League last year? What a strange short career so far. Any updates on Mychal?

Right now he's trying to convert himself into a power reliever after his bat and fielding ability failed to live up to initial expectations. I heard he git some decent movement on his pitches and he got the win today with a couple of shutout frames so he's off to a good start.

Tony, what does Mike Wright's color coding mean?

It means that I forgot to make him brown when I changed the color from orange to brown. ;)

Any particular reason why Tyler Wilson and Brandon Waring were placed on Aberdeen's roster? I certainly understand roster crunches, but I wouldn't have expected either of them to be the first to go. Unless they were unhealthy or not in shape to start the season with a team.

    • Well, that's why I said he's a hard guy to project, he really is. I mean who do you compare him to.  He has Vidal Nuno stuff or worse, but he does a ton of crazy, deceptive things that make the stuff play up to the point where he hasn't been hittable at all in the minors, even being young for his level. I try to be super realistic in my reports and not overplay someone's chances.  I liked Cortes enough to rank him the top LHP available in the Rule 5 draft, and the second best SP option behind Burch Smith (who I really like and I think should do well for the Royals this year). Cautiously optimistic is probably the right place to be on Cortes.
    •   After reading your scouting report im not as optimistic as I was after your first reply. I guess being a LHP gives him a huge edge to stay in the rotation, I just wonder how hit-able he'll be. 
    • http://www.orioleshangout.com/2017/11/30/rule-5-target-nestor-cortes-lhp/ This is the report on him I did before the Orioles selected him in the Rule 5 draft.  He was one of my top targets for the draft.  Read at least the delivery section.  Basically, he changes the way he delivers the ball from pitch to pitch more than anyone in the majors.  
    • What is weird about his pitching? Haven't heard about it.
    • Let's pretend Nestor Cortes isn't a rule 5 pick for a second. Ok, so in that case, the Orioles have a guy who... Threw 63 innings of 2.26 ERA ball in 2015 as a 20yo in short season ball. Threw 106 innings of 1.53 ERA ball in 2016 as a 21yo split between low A and A+ ball. Threw 104 innings of 2.06 ERA ball in 2017 as a 22yo split between AA and AAA. The Orioles didn't have one pitcher in AAA who was 22 years old for any of 2017. He's struck out more than a batter per inning on average and his HR/9 innings pitched is a minuscule 0.38 in his last two seasons. (for comparison, the lowest in the majors in 2017 among pitchers with 100+ innings was 0.60) If this guy had been acquired any other way, a lot of people would be excited about trying him in the rotation. Now, don't get me wrong, there are reasons to question whether he'll be as successful as a major league player from a scouting perspective and he's hard to project because he's such a weird pitcher.  But the guy has done nothing except pitch exceptionally.
    • Wile E. Coyote.  When the Roadrunner stops short.
    • Ynoa, Asher are the two most likley candidates.Unless one of the Rule 5 picks looks great. I've heard Buck mention Hess when talking about options for 18. After that it gets murkier.
