I seem like the only one who likes Stewart on the board, just wait till you see him play, he'll surprise you.

 

Other than that I agree with you. Mullins might be ready at some point next year, but probably needs more time in the minors. Rifaela definitely isn't ready and isn't a lock to ever see the majors, he's got a good bit of developing to do.

I like Stewart.  I saw a lot of him in Frederick.  I don't believe he'll be ready for the O's in '18.

Stewart, in my opinion, is more ready than Hays for the majors.  Hays is the better player and prospect (obviously), but Stewart is more of a finished product.

I've read good things about Stewart. It's nice to talk about three legit prospects who very well could be our future outfield.

4 actually.

Who is the fourth?

Hays - Stewart - Mullins - Santander, I assume...

Sure would be nice to get Mancini to first base somehow.

Yeah, it'll work itself out though, even though all 4 have a mid-range outcome of being a regular, there is still a good chance that one or more flames out.

How have Hays, Santander, and Sisco looked the last two games?  I've missed the last two. 

Santander has been hitting liners left and right.  Sisco has looked solid behind the plate and comfortable at the plate.  Hays' defense has looked good, his timing is a bit off at the plate still, but he's looking a bit better.  He made the last out of the game last night, but it was a 390ft line drive, a loud out.

Honestly I don't know what to make of Santander. Is he legit or just another Rule V reject from a talent rich organization?

I'm not sure these two are contradictory.

He's going to be good. Luke Scott with better base-hit ability and less over-the-top power. But dingers, doubles, passable defense, at least a good platoon option.

Hard to keep Santander around past Mid May next year. We have enough DH types already on this team. Even if Hays struggles some offensively, his glove can help carry him.  

That said Santander has a pretty swing and I am glad we kept him. Hope he can be a real option by 2019.

Santander was unable to catch a ball near the fence in the alley last night, but I thought he made a pretty good effort to get to the ball.   Earlier in the game he initially misjudged a liner in the alley but in front of him, but he was able to correct his route and get there for the catch.     He looks to me like a guy who needs more reps, but could be a pretty solid corner OF.    And I like his approach at the plate a lot.

Nice.    To summarize the relevant part here, Manuel expects Hays to be in BA's top 25, and maybe top 15.     He thinks our farm system will be ranked somewhere in the middle, between 12th and 18th.

I never said that I thought he was a DH type.  He might not be the most polished OF, but he has more athleticism and more arm than Mancini, so he's got a chance to be average-ish out there eventually.
