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.

    • The writing is pretty much on the wall.  I looked at Moose's "effort" post and was reminded of how many times over the years Jonesy's effort got this team wins.  No he's not a good CF - that's due to a lack of range, not effort.  He wants a World Series win real bad.  And it ain't happening here. The Orioles should give him the courtesy of a trade.  They won't get that much in return.  But they have to get all they can as part of a rebuild this season if they want to keep the upcoming losing years (plural) to a minimum. I will root for Jonesy on another team, because I am a big fan of his.  Unless.... it's the Yanks, Sawx, or Jays.  It makes me wonder which teams can use him for a playoff run, and I'd like the board's thoughts on the matter. Of course this all depends on the front office being competent enough to trade their veterans.  I would just like some hypotheticals.
    • 7.32, 7.03, 5.56, 7.56.  Those are the ERAs of the 4 O's pitcher's that pitched tonight (5/23/18).  And of course until recently we had a pitcher who pitched for us with an even worse ERA (10.46 by Tillman!).  Truly  pathetic.
    • Due to my age, I've never really gotten to experience a truly great Oriole. By the time I was old enough to watch intelligently, Ripken was a veteran with a bad back who missed games and often struggled. I only got to see a few seasons of Mussina before he was off to pinstripes.  The best Orioles baseball that I've really gotten to experience is a Brian Roberts, Erik Bedard, Melvin Mora type of player. So, my random thought is about how I am that guy who didn't see a movie, but nods and smiles when you all talk about players like Brooks. 
    • You didn't think of Rodger Federer and the Williams Sisters as top 100 famous?
    • I have a question. I know JJ was hurt so he doesn't really play into this. But if you have 2 other players that will probably get drafted by the NBA, shouldn't your College Team reflect that?  Turgeon may be the worst Coach I have seem at Maryland in my life. And that's saying something after everything the program went though after Lefty was forced out.
    • All those cricket players on the list are from India.  You think India has the only team.  I don't think this players are all that known outside of India.  But when your country has over a billion people it kind of ruins the value of the list.  I think baseball is lacking stars,. Not many non baseball fanatics know who Mile Trout is.  He is boring. He isn't setting records. He has high WaR?  No one cares about that. Baseball should be marketing the good hitting pitcher from the Angels.  I think he could transcend the sport. 
    • I didn't catch Jim's comments post-game. Thanks for this. But I do remember during the game when Davis let a strike 3 down the middle and Davis looked incredulous as if "no way you called it a strike." And Palmer sort of made it sound like "He's not seeing the ball coming out of the pitcher's hand. He doesn't see the ball as it crosses the plate. He's not even looking at it. Is he even seeing the pitches?"
