    I was fooling around with Fangraph's new minor league stat tool. It goes back to 2006, and now you can pull full reports with all the minor leagues in any kind of format. It's really kind of cool. I always noticed that the Orioles haven't had much success buying or developing its talent internationally (it's not a secret to anyone). I knew, based on a conversation I had on this board recently, that we've only had two players that played on our DSL team make the majors: Jonathan Schoop and Eduardo Rodriguez. I believe that prior to 2006, Pedro Florimon was a name thrown out there. But I didn't know how that stacked up to other teams. I went about and pulled all the batters and pitchers between 2006 and 2018 that played in the DSL. There are 9598 unique players that have played in DSL over those 13 seasons. After accounting for rehab stints (only 4 that I could account for, all pitchers) I calculated that only 270, or 2.8%, have played in the major leagues. Here are those players: Red Sox (16) - Cesar Cabral, Darwinzon Hernandez, Frankie Montas, Gerson Bautista, Javy Guerra, Jonathan Aro, Jose Alvarez, Manuel Margot, Nefi Ogando, Rafael Devers, Raul Alcantara, Roman Mendez, Stolmy Pimentel, William Cuevas, Xander Bogaerts, Yamaico Navarro Rangers (15) - Abel De Los Santos, Alexi Ogando, Ariel Jurado, Christian Villanueva, Fabio Castillo, Hanser Alberto, Joe Ortiz, Jorge Alfaro, Jose Leclerc, Odubel Herrera, Omar Beltre, Ricardo Rodriguez, Tomas Telis, Wilfredo Boscan, Yohander Mendez Rockies (14) - Antonio Senzatela, Carlos Estevez, Cristhian Adames, Edgmer Escalona, Edwar Cabrera, Jayson Aquino, Jhoulys Chacin, Jose Briceno, Juan Nicasio, Rafael Ortega, Raimel Tapia, Rosell Herrera, Wilin Rosario, Yonathan Daza Yankees (13) - Abiatal Avelino, Abraham Almonte, Amauri Sanit, Cesar Vargas, Francisco Arcia, Jimmy Paredes, Joel De La Cruz, Jose Pirela, Jose Quintana, Jose Ramirez, Luis Severino, Ramon Flores, Zoilo Almonte Nationals (12) - Adrian Sanchez, Atahualpa Severino, Eury Perez, Jefry Rodriguez, Juan Jaime, Pedro Avila, Rafael Bautista, Raudy Read, Reynaldo Lopez, Victor Robles, Wander Suero, Wilmer Difo Astros (12) - Alfredo Gonzalez, Elieser Hernandez, Fernando Abad, Framber Valdez, Henry Villar, Jandel Gustave, Jorge De Leon, Jose Cisnero, Michael Feliz, Reymin Guduan, Richard Rodriguez, Teoscar Hernandez Giants (12) - Adalberto Mejia, Ariel Hernandez, Ehire Adrianza, Francisco Peguero, Hector Sanchez, Jonathan Loaisiga, Kelvin Marte, Kendry Flores, Keury Mella, Luis Castillo, Miguel Gomez, Reyes Moronta Blue Jays (11) - Carlos Perez, Carlos Ramirez, Henderson Alvarez III, Jairo Labourt, Jimmy Cordero, Joel Carreno, Jose Manuel Fernandez, Luis Perez, Miguel Castro, Moises Sierra, Richard Urena Padres (11) - Dinelson Lamet, Franchy Cordero, Frank Garces, Franmil Reyes, Jose De Paula, Jose Ruiz, Luis Urias, Pedro Hernandez, Rymer Liriano, Simon Castro, Tayron Guerrero Mets (11) - Elvin Ramirez, Gabriel Ynoa, Gonzalez Germen, Hansel Robles, Jenrry Mejia, Jordany Valdespin, Juan Lagares, Luis Cessa, Merandy Gonzalez, Rafael Montero, Rhiner Cruz Braves (10) - Christian Bethancourt, Daniel Castro, Jesus Sucre, Johan Camargo, Jose Peraza, Luis Avilan, Mauricio Cabrera, Randall Delgado, Victor Reyes, Williams Perez Twins (10) - Danny Santana, Engelb Vielma, Felix Jorge, Fernando Romero, Jorge Polanco, Josmil Pinto, Miguel Sano, Oswaldo Arcia, Randy Rosario, Yangervis Solarte Royals (10) - Andres Machado, Jorge Bonifacio, Juan Graterol, Kelvin Herrera, Meibrys Viloria, Miguel Almonte, Orlando Calixte, Ramon Torres, Sugar Ray Marimon, Yordano Ventura Angels (10) - Alberto Rosario, Alexi Amarista, Ariel Pena, Eduardo Paredes, Jaime Barria, Jairo Diaz, Jean Segura, Jose Rondon, Luis Jimenez, Victor Alcantara Cubs (10) - Alberto Cabrera, Arismendy Alcantara, Felix Pena, Jeimer Candelario, Junior Lake, Marco Hernandez, Marwin Gonzalez, Pedro Araujo, Starlin Castro, Willson Contreras Tigers (9) - Angel Castro, Angel Nesbitt, David Paulino, Jose A.

I'll post more in this thread as I get information about the new guys the O's are signing.

    As an aside, I am really liking Joe Trezza’s willingness to look at and present analytic data in his reporting and tweets. He doesn’t overdo it, but he’s definitely willing to go there and presents it in a simple, understandable way.

    For the record, I'm not always positive. I'm really making a conscious choice to be positive about the club this year, though. For my own sanity. The silver lining report is kind of an exercise to force myself to see the positives in an ultimately lost, if entertaining, year. Mike Wright is gone though, so I'm feeling very positive right now!

    The Orioles are smack in the middle of the AL for Runs Scored: http://www.espn.com/mlb/stats/team/_/stat/batting/league/al 5th in hits 10th in doubles 8th in homers 9th in batting average 11th in on base 10th in OPS If this team finished with those totals, I'd be fairly happy. That's a lot more than I'd have expected headed into this season and a reason to be positive heading into 2020.

    His first two seasons his FB average was 94.8 and 94.9 MPH. So he was sitting 95. And that was as a starter most of the time. This year it's 93.6. Definitely didn't get the velocity bump out of the pen, which is a bit surprising because a lot of guys do.

    This is a last place team in the middle of a three year rebuild, theres just no reason to do that right now. Would it help him, sure, probably give him a tick up on the velocity and make his change more effective. What I would like to see from Bundy (outside better FB command) is what Boyd and Corbin have done. That is go full on Slider. All three sit at about the same velocity fastball. Two years ago Corbin started throwing his slide around 37-40% of the time. His slider pitch value was at about 12 (10 is pretty good for reference) at the time and the pitch value has only risen. Boyd started the same process last year and continued this year to great results. Boyd's PV on the slider was a slightly better 17 last year. Bundy throws a 53/20/20 split (FB/SL/CH). Two years ago that change was nasty, but as atomic pointed out, he was throwing with more velocity. With the lower velocity the change wasn't nearly so effective last year. I want to see Bundy came out and drop 40% sliders, work the fastball up and see what kind of starting pitcher he can be.

    I'm interested to hear if there's anything that sticks out about the guy. Probably not, but why not throw another middle infielder into the mix down there.

    I agree with this. I think I've mentioned before that with the focus on launch angles now, Bundy would be better served to work his fastball up in the zone.

    I very much believe that as well. When everyone is pulling the rope the same way good things can happen. But I also believe that this team is very bad and will continue to be very bad, as evidenced by their 9-16 record and -48 run differential (worst in the majors).

    I believe that positivity is a strong force. When players start believing in themselves good things can happen. When they start believing in each other great things can happen. Positivity is a driving force with the O's right now. It will be interesting to see what happens next.

    I'm not telling anyone how to raise their kids. I don't think it's unreasonable to suggest that if a kid can't handle a normal city atmosphere that it might be a good idea if they were exposed to that more. Or not. Just stay in the suburbs and avoid the city environment at all costs. I was really just comparing my experience. Me and plenty of my friends and family have been to the stadium dozens if not hundreds of times and have had zero issues involving our personal safety. There is perception and there is reality. There is also culture shock. Which I sympathize with. But only one way to get over that.

    Davis is getting close to passing his BA from last year. He was at .158 before striking out in his last AB, now .155. He’s surpassed his OPS from last year, .544 to .539. Not bad for a guy who was batting .000 11 days ago.

    I’m not big on comps, but Valentin is both bigger than Bannon and having a better hit tool. Bannon is a hard guy to comp even for someone who likes comps (which is were some of the scouts’ doubts come from). How many 5’10” 180lb guys with power as their best tool are there in the majors? Also, it’s probably more like 5’8” in cleats.

    I think a nice centerfield angle is the easiest to tell. Some site one time showed which MLB parks had the best viewing angle for judging pitches. Also, sitting behind home plate is decent, though the catcher and umpire block where the ball is received sometimes.

    o Melvin Mora HATED losing to the Yankees when he played for the Orioles. I remember when he got thrown out of a game when the umpire allowed the contest to continue in a torrential downpour, THEN called for the tarp to be put on the field AFTER a 2-run single by the Yankees gave them the lead. Then there was a game in which the Orioles made a late rally to win the game. Mora scored the tying run from 1st base on a double. When he started to get up, he was smiling so large, he looked like a little kid in a candy store. Mora's passion in those games against an intra-divisional rival was great to see. o

    If there were a 'Team Hotsheet' the Delmarva Shorebirds would be number 1. They have the best record of all the minor league teams at 9-1 and a .900 W-L per-centage! Harrisburg follows with 10-2.
