Base case scenario for Stewart involves average or slightly better defense and an OBP higher than 312.

I’m a Stewart fan, and think he will turn out to be a better player than Smith.   But so long as Smith is hitting better than expected, I don’t expect a change.

But you would agree that"best case scenario" Stewart provides superior defence and higher OBP correct?

Higher OBP, definitely.   Superior defense - probably, but I haven’t seen enough of him out there to really know what I think.   I do know that Smith is below average so it wouldn’t take much to be superior to him.

Best case scenario is that Stewart isn't a butcher.

I think Stewart is better than Smith and Smith is better than Nunez. Bye, bye Nunez if I had my way.

I think that’s worst case. Best case is he’s above average as you first stated.

Whatever gets Mancini out of the OF. But yes, obviously.

28 walks to 26 SO indicates to me that he's mastered that level of play, more so than his overall slash line.  I'd be working to find a way to get him up to the majors, he should get 250+ ABs this year up there this season to give us a better idea of what we have.  This is an "inventory" year after all.

4 for 6 with a walk and a double tonight.  BA to .320, OPS to 1.023.   

I honestly don’t remember a month  this hot from any Orioles prospect ever.   We’ve seen some HR binges, but 1.400+ OPS for a month?    That’s crazy.

I was watching him hit the other day and he's just a really tough out right now. He'll be down 0-2, take 3 borderline pitches, foul off a couple strikes, and line a pitch to left center.

Watching Muncy in the HR Derby I couldn’t help but find hope Stewart. One mechanical change and the talent gave him new life as he approaches 28 years old. I still have hope for 24 year old Stewart who is more athletic than Muncy. 

 

 

This guy gets it.

And yet no promotion in a rebuilding year.

Couldn't even get the call for the double header.
