Ryan McKenna 2019

Recommended Posts

I always catch grief for bringing this up, but outside of two months at Frederick McKenna has never hit. He’s hit .688 in 170 games at AA. He’s still young for the league, so there’s no reason to jump him to AAA.

You probably catch grief for that because it isn't accurate. It was more like four months in 2018 between Frederick and Bowie, his OPS by month was .844, 1.056, .969 and .775. His second half of the season in 2017 at Delmarva was also solid. His OPS in July and August was .824 and .837.

He also had the third highest OPS in the league last year in the Arizona Fall League.

Baloney. 67 games in Frederick is his calling card. The 17 in Arizona aren’t worth counting and I believe are not counted by Baseball ref. And they are 17 games. I’m sure you can string together three weekends spread across two months and squint real hard and confuse yourself.  The guy’s performance this year is pretty much par for his career.

Takes less than 10 seconds to fact check that.

You are the one that brought up months. I just gave you numbers for other months. If you want to dismiss that, it is on you.

Please be a promotion and not an injury

 

Unfortunately, I’d be shocked if that was the case.

It seems like he left midgame earlier in the week. He may have some lingering issue.

McKenna non-chalanted a ball in Sunday's game while playing left that allowed a runner to tag from 2nd and 3rd. Then yesterday, he did something similar and it allowed a runner to score from first base on a ball into LC that should not have scored the runner. I'm going to say this benching was a "teaching moment" for a young player. He's physically fine.

Glad to hear he isn't hurt. Too bad the Orioles don't have the depth to do the same with Santander when he slacks off defensively.

My friend who is a scout thinks Satander might have some slight injury.He was DHing a few games back for a few games. Since they have put him back in the outfield, he does not seem the same.

I was curious what he's been doing lately so I decided to look up his splits. In the last 28 days, McKenna has:

24 games
85 PAs
71 ABs
13 BBs
21 Ks
3 stolen bases
3 caught stealing
9 hits
.127 BA
.262 OBP
.389 OPS
9 total bases

I hope the injury rumor was right. He's hit a wall.

85 PA is a long time to go without an extra base hit.    He did go 2 for 4 yesterday, so let’s hope he’s snapping out of it.

    • Baysox Walk Off in Wild 7-6 Affair Cumberland’s HR ties game, while McKenna’s bunt wins it.   BOWIE, Md. – The Bowie Baysox scored a run in the ninth and 10th innings to escape with a 7-6 thriller over the Binghamton Rumble Ponies in front of 2,462 at Prince George's Stadium Wednesday afternoon.   Bowie (40-20) jumped out to a first-inning lead for the second straight. A single and two hit-by-pitches loaded the bases for Jesse Valentin, who lifted a sacrifice fly to left field to easily score Cedric Mullins. Gavin Cecchini tied the game two pitches into the second inning with his third home run of the season to left field.   The hosts immediately answered with some two-out production in the bottom half of the second inning. Ryan McKenna took the first pitch from Tommy Wilson and sent a triple to the LF corner, past a diving Michael Paez. T.J. Nichting, who hustled into second base with a bloop double and went to third base on a groundout, trotted home to give Bowie a 2-1 lead.   The Baysox scored a run in their third consecutive inning, increasing their advantage to 3-1. Zach Jarrett lined a two-out single to right field to score Brett Cumberland, who started the rally with a single before a Mason McCoy walk.    Binghamton (26-37) tied the game with two outs in the top of the fourth, but Bowie regained the leading by scoring in the fourth straight frame. Ryan Ripken blooped a two-out RBI triple past a diving Barrett Barnes to score Mullins and Valentin. The first baseman has driven in four runs in the three-game series and has hit .417 (10-for-24) with five multi-hit games in his past six games played.   The Ponies again fought back and scored in four straight innings to re-take the lead, capped by a Patrick Mazeika home run in the seventh inning off LHP Luis Gonzalez. RHP Cristian Alvarado tossed a pair of key scoreless innings, keeping the Ponies off the board and the Baysox in the game.   In the bottom of the ninth inning, the hosts struck and tied the game once again. Cumberland launched a one-out solo home run to deep left-center field off Joshua Torres for the catcher’s third long ball of the season.   One inning later, after Francisco Jimenez tossed a scoreless 10th inning, Mullins reached on a bunt single down the third base line to advance Nichting to third base. One batter later, McKenna drove in his second run of the game on a bunt down the first base line. Nichting sped home to beat the throw from first baseman Patrick Mazeika.   The final home series of the 2019 regular season begins Thursday night at 7:05 p.m., when LHP Zac Lowther (12-7, 2.77 ERA) faces RHP Pedro Vasqiez (7-3, 2.69 ERA) and the Altoona Curve, Double-A Affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates.                     
    • Frederick Keys News Release   For Immediate Release: August 21, 2019   BURKE, BULLPEN TOSS SHUTOUT IN GAME TWO WIN KEYS AND P-NATS SPLIT QUASI-DOUBLEHEADER FREDERICK, MD – The Frederick Keys (21-35, 50-75) and Potomac Nationals (30-28, 60-65) split a quasi-doubleheader on Wednesday night at Nymeo Field. The two teams picked up a suspended game from Tuesday night in the bottom of the first inning and the P-Nats polished off a 6-3 win. The Keys bullpen came out in force in game two as Scott Burke and company tossed a 1-0 shutout victory. With the win, the Keys force a rubber match on Thursday night. Game two saw limited offense until the Keys broke a scoreless tie in the bottom of the fifth. Ben Breazeale lead-off the inning with a single and Will Robertson followed with a double into left-center field to put two runners in scoring position. The P-Nats then brought in Hayden Howard to relieve Francys Peguero (0-1). He walked a batter to load the bases and Robbie Thorburn followed with a soft groundball to the right side that scored the runner from third. Burke was outstanding for the Keys. In his first Carolina League start, he tossed four scoreless frames and struck out four batters, including a pair with two runners in scoring position in the second inning. Reed Hayes (1-2) picked up the win after throwing two innings in relief. Tim Naughton (S, 😎 made it interesting in the ninth as he put the tying and go-ahead runners on before retiring the final batter. The suspended game picked up in the bottom of the first inning with the Keys trailing 2-0 after the P-Nats scored against Blaine Knight (1-10) in the opening half inning that was played on Tuesday. Potomac continued their scoring ways on Wednesday. After a strikeout-wild-pitch and a walk put runners at first and second, MLB Rehabber Ryan Zimmerman hit a double down the left-field line that scored a run. Aldrem Corredor then brought home another to make it 4-0 P-Nats. In the third, Jakson Reetz snuck a home run over the wall in left field, and the P-Nats were able to load the bases in the fourth with no one out. Ofelky Peralta limited the damage. He forced a groundball double-play that allowed a run to score to make it 5-0 and then got a pop-up to get out of the jam. Peralta lasted into the seventh but was pulled after he recorded a strikeout. He struck out four and allowed four runs while walking a career-high six batters over 5.1 innings. Meanwhile, P-Nats starter Tim Cate (5-4) was dealing. His only hiccup was in the fifth when Daniel Fajardo clubbed an RBI double off him to put the Keys on the board. Cate picked up the win and struck out nine over seven innings. The Keys offense got going in the eighth inning. After Fajardo singled, Chris Clare followed with a double to put runners at second and third with one-out. Cole Billingsley then hit a groundball that scored a run and Sean Miller poked a two-out base hit through the right side to bring home a run and make it 6-3 P-Nats Frankie Bartow (S, 6) shut the door in the ninth for Potomac. Knight took the loss despite throwing just one inning on Tuesday. The Keys and P-Nats square off in a rubber match on Thursday, August 22 before hitting the road. RHP Brenan Hanifee (8-9, 4.35) takes the mound for Frederick against RHP Francys Peguero (0-0, 1.42) for Potomac. First pitch is scheduled for 7:00pm with pregame coverage starting at 6:45pm on the Tune In app and frederickkeys.com. The Frederick Keys are the Advanced-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, and play their home games at Nymeo Field at Harry Grove Stadium. Following the 2018 season, the Keys were named the winner of the Carolina League’s Complete Franchise Award. This goes to a team in the league which demonstrates franchise stability and significant contributions to its community and the league. In 2019, the team will host the Carolina League All-Star Classic presented by Visit Frederick.
