Favorite Orioles Minor Leaguer?

Recommended Posts

Figure this could be interesting.

For those who have watched the Orioles minor league teams for a while, who is/was your favorite, who never made it to the majors (or might not make it to the majors?)

Not looking for "Machado," "Weiters," ect. I'm talking the lesser known ones that you, for whatever reason (they made a great play you remember, they took their time with your kid, ect) got your attention.

Ryan Mountcastle. Because he is an advanced hitter. Like Machado, Markakis, or Wieters were.

"Who might not make it to the majors."

Guess hopes aren't so high on him then?

Seamus Curran, based solely on liking the idea of a 6'6" 245 guy named Seamus.

His "Players Weekend" jersey name: "The Shillelagh."

Of current guys who probably won’t even get a cup of coffee. 

Tyler Erwin for pitchers.

Cole Billingsley for position players.

Edit: Can you tell which affiliate I saw the most this year?

I'm far from a seasoned minor league follower, but Andy Mitchell was a guy who you kind of wanted to see get a cup of coffee in the big leagues simply because he stuck around the system forever.  Lets face it, he wasn't very good.  But, he got close to the big leagues several years, just never got that phone call, even in the darkest of dark ages.  

While he's disqualified for pitching a whopping 1.2 innings in the big leagues, also have to call out Zach Clark.  As a fellow UMBC alum, I always rooted for the guy because lets face it, UMBC isn't a hot bed for producing major league talent.

Current player - the Moesquito.

Former player - Winter Polo, because I like the name.

Current: Moesquit

Former: Wynston Sawyer. Samething about the  name, plus the title "Son of Tom, named after Churchill."

I was blown away when I saw Sharlon Schoop in Bowie. Strong, athletic. He looked like a man amongst boys and had the stats at the time to back that up. Then I realized he was like 25-26 and a non-prospect. Still, his athleticism stuck out to me.

He literally was a man among boys.

He played for us at ages 27-31 and got in 77, 80, 86, 34 and 36 games.      His OPS went .588, .543, .631, .722, .644.    He was at Norfolk more than Bowie the last four years.

I spent a year (2007) interning for the Frederick Keys and Mark Fleisher sticks out from that.

As for fun names, I offer Ivanon Coffie

I also liked Walter Young and Calvin Pickering back in the day.

Yup. I must have seen him in like his second game at Bowie that year because his stat line was very good. None of his full season stats were though.
