I think Stewart might be tradeable when the time comes.

Tony has Stewart as the O's #24 prospect.   MLB Pipeline has him at #23.  What do the O's get in trade for someone  like that.

More than you get for Yaz.

That is not the question.  I never said Yaz has trade value.

My take, Young Jr. was signed to compete with Yastrzemski, Bostick and Santander for the 5th starter's spot, but most likely ends up nothing more than a deep depth signing who will end up AAA outfield depth barring an injury. 

 

Converting 4A outfielders to starting pitchers!   Is there nothing these goofy analytics guys won't try?

Beats giving Tillman a guaranteed contract.

Jones would outrun and outplay Stewart in the outfield.  Jones just isn't a center fielder any more.  He would be fine in right with  ST to adapt.  I see Mancini and Stewart as both having below average range in the corner out field spots.

Kind of a sad statement, but I’m not sure Jones can outrun Stewart.  https://baseballsavant.mlb.com/sprint_speed_leaderboard?year=2018&position=&team=BAL&min=10

The sad part is he can't outrun Mancini.

I’ve rarely seen a guy who’s lost as much speed in two years as Jones apparently has.

Check out you know who at the bottom of the O's page.

I don't think he could hit an "inside the park" home run in the old Polo Grounds...Even if the entire outfield suddenly fainted.

He couldn't hit it to the deep part of the Polo Grounds...

But then again, few could.

Saying that Adam arm has declined is not to say that it is below average for a right fielder.   Stewart's is.  Adam had amazing arm a few years ago.

Stewart has an ok arm. Better than Mullins.
