  1. Yes, just walk in and watch.
  2. Saw Pinto in the FCL. That day he was dominant with a fastball topping at 93 and a very sharp breaking ball that the hitters at the level were over matched by. I didn't see much of a 3rd pitch, though. So, not sure what his total repertoire is, but definitely needs to move up to see how is stuff plays at higher levels. Very good control for that level, also
  3. Got to watch the Orioles Orange team in the FCL and the batter I came away most impressed with is Ramirez. To date he really hadn't shown much pop, but I saw a player with easy power to the opposite field and a nice approach compared to the rest of the hitters. He had a monster day yesterday. I see they signed him as a SS, but seriously doubt he'll play there, was playing 3B the day I saw him. He'll be maturing into his 6'2" frame, one worth watching
  4. Agree 100 percent about the command issues. He's nowhere near where the catcher puts the glove on most of his pitches. I'm hoping it's rust and not a injury issue, but I'm starting to get a little concerned
  5. Sisco is this year's version of Chris Davis. Move on from this guy he can't hit a major league fastball.
  6. From what I've seen, Urias will struggle defensively. I think he'll be worst than Alberto on the D side and probably a little better overall on the offensive side, due to the fact he has a little more pop. I think he's just a stop gap until one of the younger players is given a legit chance. One thing I've notice on his defense is he struggles with turning the double play, we'll see
  7. If it wasn't for Sisco's hot start he would be in that group. I fully expect him to teeter on the Mendoza line soon.
  8. I tried to start a thread on a possible injury to a big Oriole prospect, what happened?
  9. Hoping for the best, but today at minor league camp, Diaz was hit on the foot and struggled getting off the field. It would really stink if he ends going on the IL or DL whatever they're calling it these days to start the year. McKenna was also hit on the foot prior to Diaz, a lefty throwing down and in sliders, but he seemed fine. McKenna did homer to the opposite field, that was nice to see.
  10. Triple Crown


    For all of you Zoellner fans, today in a minor league game he hit 2HRs. One off of Joe Ryan a Tampa pitcher who before Zoellner had struck out 8 of 9, just saying
  11. I don't think Nunez is a lock to start at 3rd. Ruiz is having a very nice spring
  12. Looks to me that you're making way too much of it, who cares how it got out. It's not a big deal, he wanted to show some class with all the others in the running, no big deal
  13. I thought the ball difference was a factor. Everything he threw was in the upper half of the zone and with his skill set he will get destroyed pitching above or near the belt. I wasn't overly impressed with his stuff, but I would be willing to give him a couple more chances to see if it was nerves or the baseball
  14. I saw Yelin Rodriguez's outing yesterday and definitely saw some potential. He has 2 plus pitches , in my opinion, his changeup and curve. He does most of his damage with the off speed stuff, gets a lot of very ugly swings with the curve ball and uses his fastball which topped out at 91 to keep hitters honest. He will need to have very good command with the fastball, but at his age of 19. he does turn 20 later in the year, he could add a tick or 2. He seemed to have a good understanding of pitching and works quickly. He'll be worth watching as he gets into the higher levels. but there might be
  15. If you were wondering if it was a slow gun, I don't think it was. That speed was what I thought it could be with the naked eye, definitely not overpowering
