2016 Oriole Draft Tracker

Recommended Posts

Nothing surprising here. If Palmeiro is taking a physical then a deal will get done. Once there was no money left there was no way that Blohm was going to signh and honestly, going to college for him is probably the right move at this juncture. I think he will end up a good one three years from now but it's probably in his best interest to head to College Park for 3 years and see where he's at. As for Bonilla, I'd give him a $10K bonus offer and tell him every week after 15 July it goes down $1K. Either he wants to pitch professionally or not. There's a reason he was 12th round pick and although there's some upside because of the velocity, it doesn't justify giving a 22-year old with no leverage anything more.

I was really holding out for Benjamin Brecht...

Among those the club will not be signing is 17th round pick Tyler Blohm, a left-handed pitcher from Baltimore-area baseball powerhouse Archbishop Spalding. Blohm will honor his scholarship to the University of Maryland, Rajsich said.

Deadline is at 5PM EST, I hated the old midnight deadline.

And the Orioles have until next draft to sign Bonilla.

This draft is looking really good so far.  Hays is all the way in Bowie now.  Akin has turned it around in A+.  Myers and Haniffee have had impressive debuts.  Palmeiro is close to an .800 OPS in Delmarva.  Bonilla had a good debut.  Jake Ring has been mashing in Delmarva.  We still haven't seen Torres yet.  

Only Sedlock and Dietz are the letdowns so far.  Wish we would've signed Blohm away from UMD.

I'd throw Torres in the dissapointment catagory, but he's 20

    • Hasn't that been one of our biggest complaint about a lot of the pitchers we've tossed out there the last few years, many of whom are no in Korea?   They don't have a pitch they can finish guys off with. I'm sure sample size is a factor, but it does look like they have proactively attacked a team weakness and made at least some improvement.
    • Is that true? I remember that being part of the negotiations but I dont think it ended up being part of the deal since MLB unilaterally set the number of games. MLBTR seems to think there are still qualifying offers and so does Twitter, based on my searching. Mets beat writer seems to think a qualifying offer is still an option and nobody is correcting her, and since she is a woman on the internet writing about sports, I imagine she would be corrected by a million dudes if she was wrong.
    • I don’t disagree with anything you said, and I’m grateful you said it. Everyone needs a designated driver. But lemme play devil’s advocate for a moment. This is 60 games. ~12 starts instead of 30. 60 starters instead of 162, and several guys who can start a time or two and not ruin our lives. One trait of greatness is consistency. Over 60, that is less important than over 162. Our starters and our pen appear much superior to the last couple years. Not enough to matter in 162 because the long season takes a toll, And quality-or lack thereof- finds its level, but in 60 games? Sure. And remember the short season doesn’t help the best, because the best doesn’t need the benefits a short season offers. The defense is much better too, unless Nunez is playing third, anyway. so yes I agree with you, but it’s not out of the question.  
    • This was a nice read.  And that's not sarcasm.
    • No qualifying offers this season.
    • If Stroman gets a qualifying offer he would cost the O's their third pick (either the comp pick after round 2 or, if that pick is traded, their third round pick). Jake Odorizzi got a QO this off-season at the same age as Stroman with a less successful career to date. I think it is quite likely that Stroman gets one too.
    • I appreciate Wildcards's enthusiasm and optimism. This season is such a wildcard because of all the variables that really anything could happen and I wouldn't be overly surprised. Saying that, there is no reality where this is the beginning of a sustainable winning core.  There is just as much of a chance of this team losing ten straight games as they do of keep playing .500 ball the rest of this season.  As Drungo has point out, there are some guys who have started out this season way above their carer norms. Even if you believe Severino, Ruiz, Alberto and Nunez are breaking out as they enter their primes, does anyone think Cobb, Milone and Wojo are going to keep pitching to their current ERAs? Cobb maybe since it seems his splitter has come back, but I'm not buying long term sustainability on Milone and Hyde has used Wojo right but not letting him go more than twice through an order.
