  3. The HOTSHEET is back. Check out who was hot (and not) among the Orioles Hangout top 30 prospects for the month of April. Baysox left-hander John Means earns the top spot on the list after pitching to a 1.40 ERA over his first five starts: http://www.orioleshangout.com/2017/05/01/orioles-minor-league-prospect-hotsheet-april-edition/
  4. TIDES ANNOUNCE OPENING DAY ROSTER Ron Johnson set to lead Tides for 6th consecutive season The Norfolk Tides and their parent club, the Baltimore Orioles, have announced the Tides Opening Day roster for the 2017 season. The roster features 13 pitchers and 12 position players, and the team will once again be managed by Ron Johnson. Joining Johnson are Pitching Coach Mike Griffin, Hitting Coach Sean Berry, Field Coach José Hernández, Athletic Trainer Mark Shiresand Strength and Conditioning Coach Trevor Howell. Norfolk’s pitching staff will consist of starters Mike Wright (slated to take the mound in tonight’s opener at Charlotte), Jayson Aquino, Alec Asher, Chris Lee and Gabriel Ynoa. Norfolk’s relievers include Richard Bleir, Parker Bridwell, Stefan Crichton, Joe Gunkel, Richard Rodriguez, Zach Stewart, Logan Verrett and Jimmy Yacabonis. The Tides Opening Day roster features six infielders: Robert Andino, Alex Castellanos, Johnny Giavotella, Paul Janish, Chris Johnson and David Washington. Manning the outfield for Norfolk will be Pedro Álvarez, Michael Choice, Chris Dickerson and Logan Schafer. The Tides will open the season with two catchers: Francisco Peña and Chance Sisco. Three players will open the season on Norfolk’s Disabled List: pitcher Nate Adcock, catcher Joel Polanco and outfielder Mike Yastrzemski. Infielder Jesús Montero will open the season on Norfolk’s Restricted List. The Tides open their 2017 campaign tonight at Charlotte, with first pitch from BB&T Ballpark slated for 7:05 pm. The game can be heard live on ESPN Radio 94.1 and watched live on MiLB.tv. The Tides open the home portion of their schedule on Monday, April 10 with a 6:35 pm game against the Gwinnett Braves. The first 10,000 fans on Monday will receive a 2017 magnet schedule courtesy of John’s Tax Service.
  5. Here's a link to a recent scouting report filed on Trey Mancini by Bernie Pleskoff of FanRag sports. I'm highly intrigued with his report on Mancini's defense in right field. He also grades out Mancini as a 50 and thinks he could develop into an everyday player eventually. https://www.fanragsports.com/mlb/orioles/pleskoff-scouting-report-trey-mancini/
  6. Despite being one of the Orioles' first spring cuts, Chance Sisco is committed to becoming a major league-caliber catcher rather than moving to a different position. https://www.pressboxonline.com/2016/03/14/orioles-chance-sisco-confident-he-can-stick-at-catcher
  7. A lot of folks, including myself have penciled in Hyun Soo Kim when making out potential everyday lineups for the Orioles in 2016. Honestly, part of the reason I've put him in those lineups without seeing him play is mostly due to the fact of limited other options. However, there are some red flags that make me wonder whether Kim will end more of a 4th outfielder/DH more than an everyday guy. Sure, the 28-year old Kim comes over after posting gaudy .326/.438/.541/.979 slash line with a career best 28 home runs and 101 walks in 630 PAs. That seems great until you see that former Orioles farm hand Eric Thames, who put up a robust .252/.315/.356/.671 slash line at Norfolk in 2013, basically is Barry Bonds in Korea after slashing .381/.497/.790/1.288 with 47 home runs, 103 walks and 40 stolen bases. Honestly, if we are going off of stats, maybe the Orioles should have signed Thames to a minor league contract since he outperformed Kim and is only 14 moths older. The KBO has a wide mix of players, but most consider the talent level to be somewhere in the vicinity of High-A ball to AA. Nothing against Thames, but when he can suddenly put up Barry Bonds-esque numbers you definitely have to wonder about the talent level. The next concern is Kim's reported weight of 240 pounds when he signed. Not exactly known as a defensive whiz, Kim's reported weight in the KBO was around 210 so either it was under reported or he's eaten a lot of kimchee late. I've never seen the guy play and I know it's being reported that Brady Anderson is working with him this offseason, but a 6-2, 240 pound guy who plays LF in the KBO does not make me think he's going to be plus defender. I could be wrong, but it's a concern. Add in the fact that the Orioles signed him relatively cheaply (2ys/7mil) and you have to think there wasn't a ton of teams breaking down his door to come to America. I think his contract is worth a shot and his upside is that he could be a decent OBP guy, but at the same time, we might be getting ahead of ourselves if we start assuming he's the full-time left fielder.
  8. I watched this 2015 documentary on Netflix last night and it was OUTSTANDING!! It traces the history of the measurement of the fastball in big league baseball. The interviews and vignettes are priceless, including a Hall of Famer cast of Joe Morgan, Al Kaline, the late Tony Gwynn, Hank Aaron, Frank Robinson, Nolan Ryan, Mike Schmidt...etc. etc. The interview with Goose Gossage alone is worth the watch. It seeks to answer the question "Who threw the fastest pitch ever?" The answer will surprise you.
  9. Henry Urrutia says he was angry when the Orioles sent him to Double-A Bowie, but the move may have served as a wakeup call for the 29-year-old outfielder. https://www.pressboxonline.com/2016/06/14/baltimore-orioles-prospect-henry-urrutia-i-know-i-can-play-in-the-big-leagues
