2018-19 Offseason Tracker

Recommended Posts

Interesting tidbit of information:

Sharlon Schoop was originally signed out of Aruba in 2005 by the Giants, making him the only player in AAA to have 13 minor league seasons under his belt without a call up. He was briefly brought up on a taxi squad last year but didn't actually get purchased.

Only Allen de San Miguel of the Royals has more time, taken out of Australia in 2004, BUT, did not play in 2014 or this year (though he is on the Omaha roster) giving him only 12 seasons.

Francisco Diaz (NYY) and our own Garabez Rosa were each originally signed in 2006 and also have 12 seasons in the minors without a call up. Joel Polanco, bullpen catcher for the Tides, was also a 2006 signing by the Birds but has not played since 2011.

There are five other players signed in 2007 that haven't been called up, and four in 2008, before it opens up to 17 from 2009.

I had high hopes for Turnipseed.

I dunno why but his “career” arc reminds me of Ryan Berry or Cam Coffey. Haven’t thought about either in years, but Turnipseed dragged em out.

Thank you for posting this list.  I'm not too surprised by the names.  Many  had injury issues (Negrette, Baker, and Turnipseed) while others performed poorly.  I'm a tad surprised by Dominguez, since he did rather well and was promoted to Aberdeen at the very end of the season.  Still, he was 24 and just tasting the NYPL.  To me the biggest surprise is Vichio, who pitched to a 2.97 ERA with a 1.062 WHIP at Aberdeen and a 27K/7BB ratio.  I realize he was 23, but you can only perform where they put you.  To me, he couldn't so much more and there are certainly others of the same age and level that did not perform as well.

Maybe another team will pick up Vichio and the O's can trade a bunch of international money for him.

    • Me neither. I think I understand Elias's overall plan and the decisions not to promote our best prospects yet, as painful as the consequences may be at around 9 or 10 pm on many nights and on Sunday afternoons.  But where is the organization on Sisco? Despite his unimpressive performance in ML two call-ups, I don't think anyone questions that his offensive potential should earn him a long look at hitting major league pitching but for the doubts as to whether he will be able to catch major league pitching well enough to be the receiver (even a backup) on an Oriole team that's striving to improve and move toward contention. Sisco has been in the Orioles system since 2013. He has had five full seasons, and parts of two others, in which he's played over 400 MiL games, and 65 with the Orioles, all of them at catcher (plus a few games DHing). He's 24 and should be entering his prime years, and catchers often wear down and wear out faster than other position players. It seems to me that should be plenty of time to decide whether Sisco is or isn't going to be good enough defensively to be a major league catcher. (Even if the answer is yes, the Orioles might regard him as only good enough defensively to hold down the position for a couple of years while the team stinks, but should be thought of as keeping the catcher's box warm for Adley Rutschman or someone else we haven't yet heard of.) I have read a lot of comments about whether Sisco is or isn't improving defensively, or whether that's a hopeless task. I'm pretty sure there have been no steps taken to try Sisco at a less challenging position to get his bat in the lineup (third base would seem to be the logical choice, and there's not exactly a talent logjam there), but I don't know whether that means Elias has decided Chance can be the catcher on an improving team or is just letting the experiment  continue.  If someone out there has some information or insight on the Elias regime's views of Sisco's defense and future, I'd really like to hear about it.        
    • One of my favorites.  Really made me sad to see him end up in Boston.
    • Yeah, injuries derailed Loewen as well. As you mentioned, the expectations on our end as fans were just unreasonable.  That why depth is so important, because the odds are that most of these guys aren't going to work out.  It's also why I'm really following Means closely, because if he turns into even a back-end rotation starter that's a huge development.  You need some of these "out-of-nowhere" guys as well.
    • Well, you brought up a few moments of stupidity.  I feel like there are more.   If the goal is to get this team trained up and developed, part of that has to be situational awareness and having your players know what to do.  
    • 16,457 last night. Thank God for Yankee fans. 😀 Probably a little more tonight. Thursday should be one of the bigger crowds of the year.
    • The thing is Bordick is pretty honest when I have heard him on the radio not doing a broadcast. He gets with Hunter and they turn into the Lollypop Club.Also do they get paid on how many times an inning they mention Hyde and the coaches.Hyde loves their resilience. Hyde let them read the Bob Feller plaque about hard work and a long season.The players before the game are working hard with the coaches People don't realize the effort they put in.They watch videos and the coach who works with the catchers is the best.As opposed to the prior bench coach who worked with the catchers who was the best Not sure why other teams have coaches who dont coach.This coaching thing and managing are only done in Baltimore. 
    • Torres wants us to have the #1 pick in 2020.
