So our #3 prospect is Mountcastle who can't field, throw or run?  Well, I guess his bat is pretty darn good, so he just needs to be ready by the time Trumbo is gone.  And it is encouraging that he seems to work hard at it.  Cough Cough...Chris.

I doubt Trumbo makes it out of next year with us.

If his glove was plus I might be OK with him spot starting against lefties just for the defense.

Depending of course on the overall makeup of the team.

I think Mullins sees a lot of time in CF until  McKenna is major league ready.  If McKenna can hit both righties and lefties and field as well as Mullins then Mullins may have to move to a backup role with Hays and Diaz at the corners.

Then ones who expressed concerns about his throwing from first was because of long arm action and lack of arm strength and accuracy. Of course another one said, "how many throws does a first baseman need to make anyways?"

I'd personally put him wherever the Orioles think he will play in the big leagues. If it were me, I'd put him in left field first to see how he looks and then transition him to first base which would be easier transition. 

If Hays and Diaz are the corner outfielders, how much playing time can Mountcastle get in left?

If Mullins doesn't pick it up with the glove he might not stick in the majors.

I’m pretty confident his defense will be fine.

I trust the new President and GM to realize that having both Trumbo  and Davis on the roster makes it too difficult to manage games and look at younger players. Trumbo's contract (one more year at $13.5 million) is digestible, and Davis's probably isn't, at least not yet.

I think one of two things will happen with Trumbo: if he comes back and hits well enough to have some value, the Orioles will trade him and eat a large portion of what's left of the $13.5 million, and if he doesn't hit the Orioles will dump him and just absorb the loss.

I think so as well but I wasn't impressed with what we saw last season.

Hard for me to comment since I watched about 10 minutes of baseball after the all star break, but I know his numbers weren’t good and I did happen to catch 1-2 plays early in his call-up that weren’t good.    That said, I saw really good things from him in spring training and I think he’ll be average or better out there, except for his arm, which is a little weak.

    • I've really enjoyed the prospect lists. The prospect lists are my favorite thing to look forward too. There's so few sites that offer such great information about organizational prospects especially many that aren't on many of the top lists. I'm really interested to see Welk in his first full season and how quickly the organization pushes him given his age. Also, I wonder if they think about moving Blaine Knight who I think is probably too small to move forward as a starter and Hanifee to the pen? I really hope that Hanifee who is a local kid who grew up in Cecil before moving to Virginia takes a step forward next year.
    • I've been intrigued by Cotton. IIRC, I believe Gagnon is close to signing with a Korean team.
    • I would say Hernaiz, but Tony was so high on him that he is already pretty high up the list.  If Stauffer comes out next year and shows he can hold his stuff and perform as a starter, he's basically Kremer with a better changeup. So that'd be a jump. McLarty or Welk are potential jumpers, McLarty could easily to come out a throw 92-95 with average or better command and a solid 3 pitch mix as a starter, that would part him in as a #5 SP projection. Which would put him as a 45 (11-17th in this year's list). Welk could show he is an average glove at 3B, 55 hit, 45 power, that's probably a second division 3B, a 45 (11-17th in this year's list). Fenter is kind of a similar skill set as Baumann (curve instead of slider out pitch) but a little less stuff, so if he moves fast and performs he could be Baumann with a little more age and relief risk. That's a 45. I won't list guys off the 30 because I don't want to spoil a future article, but needless to say there are plenty of potential jumpers there. To respond to @Frobby's post, when I sent my personal 30 to Tony to start the process of integrating our thoughts, I included 20 guys that I had in the same tier as the last 4 guys on my 30. My tiers are a little different than the final list. 
    • Also it is amazing that we lost our pitching and bullpen coach because Brady thought they were the reason Wright wasn’t succeeding. 
    • I predict he gets shelled in the KBO.  He is no Tyler Wilson. 
    • I don’t see that at all.  
    • Buck was making something like 4 million a year.  Hyde probably makes several million less than that. Elias probably makes less than DD.  Brady’s salary is gone.  I am sure they are highly profitable. When the Astros were tanking they were most profitable team in MLB.
