2013 Minor League Depth Chart

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 Orioles use the Aberdeen squad during this time of year as a defacto place to stash guys. There could be various reasons, but Wilson could be there just until his next start. Waring right now looks like the odd man out in the 1b/3B between Norfolk and Bowie.

Where is Steve Bumbry?

He was just pulled off the Aberdeen "taxi squad" and is back in Frederick as an extra outfielder.

Updated with Planeta's release, and Ty Kelly playing 3B and Buck Britton 2B at Bowie now. They will still play other positions but this is where they are mainly playing now.

Thanks. Kelly did not look good at second when we saw him. Britton is a scrapper.

We didn't do the trackers this season due to lack of interest last year. There are tracker like threads in the minors section this year though. We may do something like a quarterly tracker though.

Thanks. I always liked it but i can see why you would drop it if there wasn't the interest.

Sorry, it was a time crunch and some people that were going to help out really didn't do it very often and the fact is, very few people looked at the trackers. We'll find something that takes their place though...

    • It's true. The minor league baseballs are more slick, even with the mud, and actually feel like they are wound tighter.
    • If we give him an opt out I think we can sign him.
    • I stole this from TV...   Marriage is a lot like poker. It starts out with 2 hearts and a diamond. After a while you're just looking for a club and a spade.
    • I did a bit of a comparison, using players that had over, or near, a .300 average (except Norfolk, because the only person who did only had 17 at bats...) and over over 100 at bats, along with their walk and strike out totals:   Delmarva Jake Ring: 154 At Bats, 12 Walks, 46 Strike Outs, .318 Average Chris Clare: 141 At Bats, 15 Walks, 34 Strike Outs, .298 Average Frederick Ryan Mountcastle: 180 At Bats, 7 Walks, 32 Strike Outs, .328 Average Steve Wilkerson: 155 At Bats, 19 Walks, 40 Strike Outs, .323 Average Austin Hays: 165 At Bats, 7 Walks, 25 Strike Outs, .321 Average Randolph Gassaway: 136 At Bats, 10 Walks, 22 Strike Outs, .316 Average Bowie Garabez Rosa: 186 At Bats, 4 Walks, 32 Strike Outs, .339 Average Austin Wynns: 133 At Bats, 21 Walks, 23 Strike Outs, .316 Average Erick Salcedo: 146 At Bats, 8 Walks, 17 Strike Outs, .295 Average Aderlin Rodriguez: 177 At Bats, 19 Walks, 32 Strike Outs, .294 Average Norfolk Johnny Giavotella: 171 At Bats, 21 Walks, 18 Strike Outs, .281 Average Drew Dosch: 115 At Bats, 9 Walks, 39 Strike Outs, .261 Average Chance Sisco: 122 At Bats, 13 Walks, 39 Strike Outs, .246 Average   Mountcastle might not have the least walks (thank you card sent to Rosa) or the most strike outs (enjoy the fruit baskets Ring, Clare, Wilkerson, Dosch, and Sisco), but he does have the second lowest ratio (hello again, Rosa) thru the system with that high of an average. Two names stick out for certain things: Austin Wynns is tied with Johnny Giavotella with the lead in walks for this group. Wynns is known more for defense than offensive. Giavotella is known as someone that can get on base. Sisco has a LOT of strike outs and a lower average for being a highly regarded hitter. Rosa has a really high average for someone that doesn't take a lot of walks and who strikes out a LOT. Mountcastle will give you 4 strike outs to every 1 walk. Are teams pitching more at him, or is he swinging at pitches that would normally be balls? Even Wilkerson, who had 40 strike outs in Frederick, gave you 1 walk for every 2 he had. Maybe some more batting cage time is needed?
    • Easily one of the nicest and easiest to cheer for players. Hope he catches on somewhere.
    • Blue Jays wish they had Duq. They'd have 11.
