2018 A - Delmarva Shorebirds

What about Wells last season? It was his first full season (like Lowther and Baumann) but he stayed in Delmarva. He wasn't exactly slacking either.

His FIP was 4.52 at the Sally league All-star break. He was allowing 1.41 HR/9 at that point. Post all-star break he had a 2.82 FIP and 0.64 HR/9. His K and BB rates were better as well. I think if he had his second half performance his first half, he'd have been promoted.

Another major factor is that Wells was 20 last year. Lowther is about to turn 22 and Baumann is 22 and a half.

And in their first loss, they still get an outstanding performance from lefty Cam Bishop - who may be the most overlooked of the outstanding Delmarva staff and also in need of a promotion - being a 22 year old.  I'm impressed that he's started out the season going 6 and then 7 quality innings.  Imo, the organization needs to make sure that his development is a priority and don't let him fall by the wayside just because they have a lot of pitching prospects at Delmarva and Frederick.

‘BIRDS SHUT OUT AT LAKEWOOD FOR FIRST LOSS
Cameron Bishop allows two runs over season-best seven innings

LAKEWOOD, NJ - The Delmarva Shorebirds saw their perfect start come to an end on Thursday night, falling 2-0 to the Lakewood BlueClaws at FirstEnergy Park for their first loss of the season.

Will Stewart (2-0) earned the win for the BlueClaws (4-4) in their home opener, holding the Shorebirds (7-1) to just four singles over six scoreless innings. He walked none and struck out four.

Cameron Bishop (1-1) took the tough loss for Delmarva, allowing two runs on six hits in seven innings, the longest start for a Shorebird this season. He struck out six and did not issue a walk in his second quality start.

Luis Ramirez got the final out of the game, preserving the Lakewood clean sheet with his first save of the year.

In a game when baserunners were hard to come by for both teams, the Shorebirds had a scoring threat in the top of the third. Seamus Curran and Jean Carrillo strung together back-to-back singles and eventually made it to second and third on a groundout. With two down, though, Stewart got Mason McCoy to ground out to short to end the threat.

In the bottom of the third, Quincy Nieporte barely cleared the fence in left center for a solo home run, his first of the season, to break the ice for the BlueClaws. Lakewood added one more in the fifth. Cole Stobbe led off with a double and got to third on a groundout, then Dalton Guthrie hoisted a sac fly into fifth, chasing home Stobbe to make it 2-0.

Stewart kept the Shorebirds at bay through six, then Jonathan Hennigan came out of the bullpen for perfect innings in the seventh and eighth.

In the ninth, Delmarva took advantage of wildness from Lakewood closer Kyle Dohy. Kirvin Moesquit and Mason McCoy led off with back-to-back walks and advanced into scoring position on a wild pitch. With the tying runs in scoring position, Dohy calmly shook it off, striking out Will Robertson and Ben Breazeale back-to-back. Right-hander Ramirez then came in to face Trevor Craport, who grounded into the shift on the left side to end the game.

Moesquit, Breazeale, Curran, and Carrillo had the only hits of the night for the Shorebirds, all singles.

Stobbe and Simon Muzziotti each had two hits for the BlueClaws.

The loss brings and end to the best start in Shorebirds franchise history; Delmarva had never started 7-0 before this season. The team’s best 14-game mark - a 13-1 stretch to begin the 1996 season - remains in the cards.

Small sample size alert, but Matthias Dietz has a 6.5, K/BB ratio though two starts. Last year he was at 1.84 K/BB.

This guy is incredibly stingy on giving up HRs, he has a FB that is hard to barrel. If he can improve his K/BB profile, he's a legit prospect.

I know it's too soon to rule him out as a starter, but if he is made a reliver, do you think he has closer potential - or at least 7th inning  potential?  I'm starting to think that he and Akin will make a formidable righty/lefty power combo at the back end of the pen in a couple of years.

An amazing stat from last nights game. The three Shorebird pitchers made only 100 pitches in their combined nine innings. With a efficient 83 strikes, no walks, and 10 strike outs.

Wish I could be there.

Starting today I’m on a stretch of 11 twelve hour shifts in 12 days, so unfortunately I won’t be there. We had a guy unexpectedly leave at my work and I’ll going to have to cover a bunch of his shifts until a replacement is hired and trained.

So it’ll be mostly video reports from me for a bit.

    • I remain pretty convinced that our pitching shows enough quantity and enough potential that we really don’t need anybody from outside: now is the time to see what our prospects can do, so throw them into the fray. But we need better catching, even if the best catcher we have now will only be our future back up, in the infield we have a glaring gap at third. I appreciate the difficulty in finding a worthwhile third baseman, on the other hand it probably would not be difficult to find somebody who is appreciably better than Ruiz. I’d be happy to give Bannon a tryout. Good or bad, he is a potential part of the future, and we might as well find out as soon as possible what he can do. One of the potential 3B guys I mentioned was a closer and throws 93-94, so he might be a possibility as a two-way player( probably not but ya never know.) I’m pretty sure that those are Mike’s two priorities right now
    • If he takes Adderall, for which he doesn't have a TUE, he could be suspended.
    • His violation was his ADD meds and I'm pretty sure he currently has the exemption.
    • I really hope that come Spring (or May or whenever) when it becomes apparent he is once again not able to contribute that he and the Orioles brass get together and see if they can negotiate a buy-out of sorts. Give him an advisor title and a portion of the money and allow Davis to bow out without enduring years more of embarrassment for the sake of money. I understand he looked better last spring and then things tanked for him in the shortened season, but I'm not convinced that was anything meaningful as opposed to a nice short showing against lesser competition (aka Jake Fox syndrome). I like Davis. I appreciate what he did in the good years. It's almost impossible to watch now. I change the channel for his ABs at this point. At this point, I cannot imagine it's a fun experience for him. For a guy that's made the money he's made, it's got to be worth walking away from some money. I understand walking away from 46 million isn't happening. But would the Orioles bite on a buy out if they could save $10M of that? At this point, it's got to be worth it to save even a couple million, particularly when/if it becomes clear that a full 162 game season will be played next year? Would Davis be willing to give up the delusion that there is a way back to contributing for him? Would that $10M be worth it to escape what has turned into a nightmare?
    • I don’t think anyone really knows what we would do if we were in that situation, because we’ve never been in a situation remotely like that.    The numbers involved are inconceivable to us mere mortals.    I don’t know if Davis deep down knows that he’s no longer capable of playing at a major league level, or whether the money has warped his objectivity and he believes he can still do it if he just figures out the right training regimen and approach.   Players are pretty capable of self-delusion even without 23 mm reasons to delude themselves each year.       
    • Nicorette is available.  How about we all chip in and send him a case...  He can chew 10 at a time then.  He'll back to his old self in no time!
    • I do think 3B is one of the harder positions to find a good player unless you develop or trade for one because they rarely are found on the DFA or Rule 5 markets. Thankfully, with Gunnar Henderson, Jordan Westburg and Coby Mayo to a lesser extent in the Organization, there are two-three potential impact players who could end up there.  In the meantime, I think they will probably end up giving a guy like Bannon an opportunity at some time next year if they don't find a better alternative to Ruiz this offseason or at the end of next spring through DFAs. Ruiz is a guy that Elias had ties to from his Houston scouting days, and if Ruiz was more athletic and could play other infield positions and outfield he could have value as a utility guy, but he doesn't hit consistently enough to be a good everyday guy at the major league level.
