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.

    • I would rather have Mark Reynolds than Mark Trumbo.  30 HR & 97 RBI & 2.8 WAR is a lot better than Trumbo produced.  Do the O's have any international slot money they can trade?  I'm predicting Trumbo + international slot money + cash for a mediocre 5th starter and a non-prospect.
    • You may or may not be a lifelong O's fan. But if you love baseball, and love the O's, the Yankees losing the next best thing to the O's winning. Just a fact based in reality. If you claim to be an O's fan, and are ambivalent to the Yankees winning in the postseason while O's fans lick their wounds, and need to go read a book,  I suggest "Non-Chalant Sunflower Seed Eating: a Guidebook" with a forward by Mark Reynolds.        
    • I wouldn’t need to get anything back, Trumbo has negative value. Either you play him and hopefully he’s good enough to offload at the deadline or you send something of value with him to make the deal palatable to the other team.  Losing him won’t hurt the O’s competitiveness, hell for the money the team saves, they could sign Jarrod Dyson or Howie Kendrick. Both of which would make the team better.
    • Not even close to the Browns who have, literally, decades of losing. We’ve won two Super Bowls during that time. I’m not trying to defend the product on the field, but we are more on par with a team like the Chargers, maybe?  As we’ve seen, being a rich business man doesn’t mean that you’re necessarily good at anything besides being a business man. 😂 We’re stuck with Joe at least one more season for cap reasons, right? I say Harbaugh is gone after this year, but Ozzie stays at least as long as Joe. I still trust Ozzie since I think a lot of it is that he’s hamstrung by the Flacco contract, which was unavoidable at the time we signed him. One of these days, though, he’s going to need to draft a WR who doesn’t bust.
    • I like the thought but considering we plan on competing this coming season, it might not be the best idea to trade a (arguably) useful player to a team that is already better than us.  I'd personally do Trumbo for Holt in a heartbeat, though. 
    • With bacon and onions. Yes!
    • Looks like the Mets are going to hire Cleveland pitching coach Mickey Callaway as their new manager.
