  2. Just wanted to point out that Jomar Reyes is quietly batting .520 (13-for-24) through his first six games. Yea I know. Small sample size and all that jazz. Still, an encouraging start from one of the more disappointing prospects from the 2016 season. Lets hope he's ready to break out and that this isn't a flash in the pan.
  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/

  6. 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/
  7. After missing several weeks with a knee injury earlier this season, Orioles prospect Glynn Davis is providing a spark for the Baysox with his speed. http://www.pressboxonline.com/2015/08/18/orioles-prospect-glynn-davis-progression-contingent-on-staying-health
  8. Mychal Givens' first big-league stint didn't last long, but the 25-year-old is working hard at Bowie and hopes to help the Orioles down the stretch. http://www.pressboxonline.com/2015/07/08/orioles-prospect-mychal-givens-looks-to-return-to-majors
  9. Q: I know he's only 18 and in his first full season in A... but is Jomar Reyes worth getting excited about? A lot of local guys have been talking up his quick progress at Delmarva, to be hitting as well as he is and with a (likely) power increase to come. McDaniel: Upside is huge. Massive raw power and huge kid with some feel to hit. There's a chance it ends up something like Miguel Sano, but obviously isn't at that top 25 prospect in baseball level yet. Q: Trey Mancini having a huge breakout season in the Orioles farm system. What do you know about him? Could he develop into a starting first baseman? McDaniel: Don't think so. Long frame and longish swing but has plus raw and is hitting more than expected; I'd guess platoon bat, but that's way more than his draft status would suggest. I liked him back to his days batting behind Jagielo in college and wondered why he didn't get more attention from scouts.
  10. Dariel Alvarez, one of the top position player prospects in the system, is off to a real disappointing start at Norfolk batting just .232/.265/.335 in 162 PA on the season. Being the numbers geek that I am, I'm here to tell you I think he is actually doing just fine and should heat up at the plate soon using a good old fashioned saber metric argument. Don't let 162 disappointing PA get you down on him just yet. Why? Because, taking a deeper look at the numbers, I see three very interesting things going on here. 2014 Alvarez: .306/.330/.472, 11% K percentage, 16.5% Line Drive Rate, .320 BABIP 2015 Alvarez: .232/.265/.335, 9.9% K percentage, 18.7% Line Drive Rate, .243 BABIP Do you see them too? Yes, so despite posting a much weaker slash line than he did in 2014, Alvarez has actually cut down his strikeouts and increased his percentage of line drives hit. But, he has gotten very unlucky on batting average on balls in play, as shown by the significantly lower BABIP in 2015. That should correct itself over time, especially if he maintains his current contact and line drive rates, and eventually that slash line should be more in line with what we expected to see from him. So, I keep telling myself. Let's hope I'm right. For what its worth, the scout that Roy Firestone talked also seems to think the bat will come around.

  12. Dylan Bundy is starting the season with the Double-A Bowie Baysox, but the Orioles prospect remains focused on returning to the big leagues in 2015. http://www.pressboxonline.com/2015/04/13/orioles-prospect-dylan-bundy-intent-on-returning-to-major-leagues-in-2015

Also, very impressive and encouraging that he's already touching 96 mph this early in the year.
  14. Welcome to the 2014 MLB draft where the Orioles 3rd rounder will receive as much attention as it ever will with it being their first pick of the draft. Day one has concluded and we are just 15 picks away from No. 90, the Orioles first selection in the draft. For all the draft junkies out there that have been paying attention to the names of interest 100-to-200 players deep like myself, who stands out to you as a possible fit for the Orioles at No. 90? It's a tough one predict as at this stage of the draft as the list of potential candidates for this pick is big and opinions vary on who's a 3rd round talent. But for discussion's sake, I thought I'd list several names that I like. (I'm no expert at this and I'll be thoroughly impressed at my guesswork if one of the following player's I mention actually gets taken by by the Orioles at pick 90) Chris Ellis - RHP - Ole Miss Really like this kid for the 3rd round. Hope he's still on the board. Command needs improvement and slider is below average but I like the plus fastball and changeup. Jace Fry - LHP - Oregon State Polished lefties that put up stellar results in the Pac-12 seem like "safe" picks to me. Fry's upside may only be a 4th starter but he's a good value for the 3rd round and may have a chance at reaching that upside rather quickly. Aaron Brown - LHP/OF - Pepperdine One of the better two way athletes in the country. His future is on the mound where he has three solid average pitches and pitched very well for the Waves this year. The possibility of a slight boost in stuff while concentrating on pitching full time intrigues me. Brian Anderson - 2B/OF - Arkansas He can hit and still has some projection in his power tool. I'm intrigued by his offensive minded second baseman profile if he can stick there. May also be an option at third with his athleticism and arm strength. Jeren Kendall - CF Kendall is an absolute burner and looks like a potential plus defender in center. His offensive profile is similar to Josh Hart in my opinion so he might be someone Gary Rajsich (who raved about Hart before and after draft day last year) is looking at if available. Casey Soltis - RF Soltis has a real nice looking left handed swing and could develop a plus hit tool in my opinion. He's not a real toolsy athlete but has enough arm for right and could be a nice find in the 3rd round. Maybe a Nick Markakis-light Keaton McKinney - RHP What I like about McKinney is that he features one of the best changeups in the prep class and a low 90's fastball with movement too. Drawbacks are concerns about his arm action and mediocre breaking ball but I like his durable 6'5, 220 pound frame and think he has a chance at a mid-rotation ceiling. Cobi Johnson - RHP I like his projectable frame, bloodlines (Dad pitched in bigs, now a roving instructor with Blue Jays) and advanced feel for pitching. Boom/Bust high school pitcher... Dylan Cease - RHP The upside play, Cease has one of the livelier arms in this class but an elbow injury that has kept him out since March dropped his stock. If available and his bonus demands aren't unreasonable, he could be a worthy gamble for the O's. If not, pass.
