DL Hall 2019

He leads by a pretty wide margin, too.   111 strikeouts in 75 innings.   Next is 100 strikeouts in 105 innings.  

Unfortunately, he’s also 3rd in walks, with 51 (53 leads the league).

The whole “not qualifying” thing can be a bit misleading.   Hall is 24th in IP, in a 10 team league.   Not many pitchers qualify.

Hall had one more strikeout than Kyle Johnston when Johnston got traded earlier this week.

According to my calculations there are only 11 pitchers in the Carolina League that have been in the starting rotation in the Carolina League the whole season

Especially at the beginning of the season, Hall was very inefficient and threw a lot of pitches per inning.

I have had Hall as the best pitching prospect in the Carolina League all year.  With Brady Singer and Jackson Kowar promoted and Daniel Lynch injured, Hall is clearly the best pitching prospect among active players now.  Kris Bubic is next. Lynch should be back soon, but I have Hall a bit higher.

My choice for pitcher of the year in the Carolina League is Noah Zavolas, who has been more consistent.

I am not a fan of promoting pitching prospects late in the season.  See Matt Riley.

Patience.    

I agree. I also believe that there can some level of overkill as far as development and time in the minors and it possibly in some cases with some guys do more harm than good.

I agree with that, too.   But Hall is simultaneously dominating and dealing with significant flaws.    His ERA and low innings total reflect that his walk rate is hindering him.    So let him keep working on that stuff in Frederick.   He’ll still be one of the youngest pitchers in AA next year.

There is a school of thought that says highly dominant pitchers in the minors can end up with elevated walk rates since opposing hitters know they are overmatched and won't swing.

Case in point, Kerry Wood had a 6.8 BB/9 in the minors before he was called up by the Cubs age 20. In his rookie season, he actually reduced his walk rate to 4.6 BB/9 and ended up with a walk rate of 4.3 BB/9 for his major league career .

Hall hasn't pitched since August 8th and isn't scheduled to start today or tomorrow. Anybody know what is up? is he piggybacking today or tomorrow?

If he’s not 100%, shut him down and let him rest. Excited to see what Hall does next season after Elias’ development team has a year of data on him and a full offseason.

I agree with this. We know he has the stuff to get higher level hitters out. Just let him get healthy and into an offseason program to work out the control issues he had this season.

AFL would probably end up being more of a showcase than working towards being an effective major league starter.

Hope he is able to pitch in Arizona. Very good season regardless.

Reading that seemed to take forever before I got to the line that did NOT say "elbow discomfort" or "forearm strain"....phew.

I don't see the Orioles sending Hall to the Arizona League unless one of their pitching coaches is his pitching coach and can control his usage. My guess is they shut him down, let his lat fully heal, and look forward to seeing him next spring.

Very simple and great point.

I say success as a season. See him in Bowie in 2020.

    • Good points Drungo! I like the idea of working backwards from the desired outcomes of a system. Goal 1: Service time should no longer be a deciding factor in free agency or player promotion. I think automatic free agency after the age 27 season would be good (or after age 23 if they've never made it to the majors), with a better compensation system worked out between the team that signs and the team that loses the guy in free agency. Maybe a % of the contract value? Goal 2: Significantly reduce the bloated, inefficient system. Limit minor league affiliates to 2 full season teams, 1 short season team, and whatever overseas academies they want. Pay the minor leaguers better. Cut the draft in half (20 rounds).
    • As long as it isn't DJ on horseback! Otherwise I'd worry that the ball would hit the horse square in the forehead, risking career-ending injury to the glove (not whip)-wielding jockey as its knees buckled.
    • When I started this post I didn't know if twenty people would respond or a hundred. More have responded and with some good comments. I didn't say I think Hyde should be fired. I threw out the possibility with Elias terminating a lot of people in the organization. I don't think he will be replaced even though he does questionable things almost every game. The coaches are a different story.  I think several could be replaced and possibly our advance scouts and if Hyde is like most managers he won't replace them. It will have to be Elias who makes the needed changes. Will he ? It looks like Detroit will get the number 1 pick.  I think they are 3 1/2 behind us with 10 to go. 7 vs the White Sox and 3 vs the Twins. We have 3 with Seattle, 3 with Toronto and 3 with Boston. We could lose them all and so could Detroit.  This is going to be hard to predict.  Number 2 is still okay.
    • ^^^^^^^^^Listen to this man.   He was a very good defensive outfielder in his day.
    • Just watched the replay, and timed it.   If he had IMMEDIATELY thrown the ball back in instead of beating his chest, it might have saved 2-3 seconds.  Tonight's game lasted 10,380 seconds according to the box score.   So at the very worst the "celebration" added 0.02% to the time of the game.  Even if a game had 50 such celebrations, it would add roughly 2 minutes to the gametime. One pitching change probably takes 30-50 times longer than the "celebration". You can dislike it all you want, but trying to say it slows down the game is an absolutely absurd stretch of logic to try to support your point.  
    • My 3: Get rid of Davis. He isn't a ML capable player anymore. The money is a sunk cost. Bite the bullet and cut him loose. Find some pitching. Doesn't have to be expensive or flashy. Just a few guys that can get more outs. Tighten up the D. Again, not expensive or flashy, just a bit above average. Next year is year 2 of the rebuild so I'll be patient. These would be prudent goals for now.
    • Its a meaningless game for the 2019 Orioles, but not for Austin Hays.  He's showing he's a major league ballplayer and he makes major league defensive plays.  The O's and major leagues in general need more excitement.
