Grayson Rodriguez 2018

Recommended Posts

Grayson Rodriguez debuted in the GCL today, pitching a scoreless inning, walking two and striking out one.     Glad he’s getting his feet wet.   I believe the O’s plan to bring him to Aberdeen eventually.

Hobgood part deux but much worse bc the other pitchers available here could have real strong upside. Frustrating, but wish him the best.

True, huge sample size in the minors so far. Glad you’re not rushing to judgment.

Come on, you are better than comments like that. At least wait until you see him pitch professionally to write him off.

You are like Webbrick Part Deux, but without the baseball knowledge.

Don't really get why Rodriguez is limited to 1 inning while fellow high schooler Drew Rom has gone 4 innings in each of his first 2 starts.  I'm all about monitoring innings and taking it easy if necessary but it's not like that helped Harvey and Bundy prevent injury.

I wouldn’t worry about that.   This season is just about Rodriguez getting his feet wet at the professional level.   DL Hall only pitched 10.1 innings last year, and he’s cruising along quite nicely this year.   Every situation is different, depending on the pitcher’s workload before he signed and other factors.

Hey, if Grayson does bomb, Rene88 gets to say he was on record first calling it.

It’s not him I don’t have faith in. There were 3 stud pitchers we passed on. We picked a no hit/all glove SS with the 1st round supplemental. I have zero faith in this org’s judgement.

That sure is a negative legacy to claim!!

The defenders all lined up for Hobgood too and vanished when he failed. Saying I have zero faith in the kid is not accurate, and people know this. I have zero faith in this org.

    • So it’s Dan’s fault he was told to cut money?   Davis was signed before 16 but they needed the money for Matusz?
    • So it’s possible a player could receive ROY votes this year and still be eligible next year.... MLB needs to say anyone who qualifies for rookie status next year is ineligible this year.  Also I have been saying for years they need to extend the voting. Should have at least go from 3 to 5 places in the voting system. Would create more recognition for players. 
    • I did not think Z had good command last night, but it’s premature and wrongheaded to put him in the same sentence as Daniel Cabrera, who walked 5.2 per 9 in the majors and 4.6 per 9 on the minors.    Z walked 3.2 per 9 in the minors.    I realize that a pitcher can have decent control but poor command, but Cabrera proved over many years that he had little idea where the ball was going, to an extent few Oriole pitchers ever had.     There’s no way I’m putting Z in that category given his track record.    I know that’s not exactly what you were saying, but I wouldn’t even propose it as an analogy because they are completely different types of pitchers. (And Drungo, sorry for the Z thing but Zimmermann is a lot to type.)  
    • LF Hays made a nice catch for Zimmerman. In Game 1 Mountcastle could not quite get an early count foul pop by Meadows in a PA that I think ended up a 10 pitch walk.  I don’t think OAA reads that foul ball but it did seem like one some LF could get.  Long way but also big hang time.

    • Just got through the DVR, and here's the lead.  My goodness - that mustache.  It goes right to the childhood McGregor Flanagan reptilian brain stem.  It's hard to see almost anything else. At one look, I'd say it's maybe an interesting call between him and Cobb for Game 5 next year, while whatever shenanigans/surgeries with Baumann, Hall, Rodriguez (and to a lesser extent Smith/Lowther) are waited out. I heard the Driveline last offseason report, but that hits me wrong for 4-pitch mix guys.  I think I think the devil's bargain of the Driveline-type proposition is you give feel and get dominance.  I see Savant had him at 30 FB, 10 SL, 10 CH, so will be curious to see if a 4th pitch comes out in Turn 2. Great story, and could certainly be a once through order or up/down guy for peak Rutschman teams but would hazard a guess that his IP count medium to long term is probably negatively correlated with team success.  Akin has splashed the pool to grow the group to 6 of "SP's I hope make 150+ starts/OpenerFollows for the 2021 Orioles", but I think Lopez, Smith and Lowther are more my 7/8/9 guys, never mind the Fulmers and Stewarts of the waiver wire. I do hope Zimmermann and all those others have somewhere to continue hot (warm, at least) games in October, whether in Bowie, or at some Super Arizona Fall League to be named later.  October/November Super Arizona Fall League could be like the Futures Game every day if anything could be concocted after the World Series.  Darn tootin I want to see Grayson Rodriguez trying to get Wander Franco out then.
