Is that based on his size @Luke-OH or have you seen some video of him?

I'm guessing it is a combination of the size, age, and position.

Sixteen and 6'4" in center are eye catching numbers.

Maybe Elias figures they need taller outfielders to rob a few home runs?

I haven't seen any of the DSL dudes and probably won't unless they make it stateside. Pretty much what COC and Art said.

I'm pretty ignorant of the international side of things. I was wondering why you never hear about any pitchers coming from there. I think the Yankees actually have a lot of flame throwers from there though, and obviously Severino. I guess it's just more rare, I wonder what the Yankees are doing differently.

$$$ and brand recognition will get you the best of the best if you want it bad enough.

I updated the second post in this thread. Should be a complete list of active international signings. Does not include players signed by other clubs first.

FWIW, Koby Perez was hired 1/2/19.    Might be worth noting on your chart.   Looks like we signed 2 guys after Elias was hired but before Perez was hired.    Have to wonder if those two were in the works before Elias arrived, as I can’t imagine he was doing anything on the international front other than looking for an international scouting director.

    • I find this kind of odd. Take Mookie - in the event that there's no season, he would both a) not be paid and b) become a free agent in the upcoming offseason. So not only does he make no money, he ages one more year and potentially gets less than he might have if he had played this season. That's two downsides for the player. Sure the team gets screwed on losing the players in the trade, but how is it that the MLBPA agreed to this? Unless I'm missing something.  A rebuilding team like the O's also loses a year of development AND control for its prospects. It's bad all around I guess.
    • I went to the store yesterday and it was a different, more serious vibe, then it was last week. There was this one guy that did manage to touch his face at least 30 times that I noticed.  Not sure if it was a physiological and psychological compulsion that was causing it but he needs to stay home and let his wife? shop by herself.
    • Yesterday I went to Tractor Supply to get chicken feed, and the the grocery store.  About half the folks in Tractor Supply were wearing masks (me included).  At the grocery store it was more like 5%. More were wearing gloves, which aren't as effective.  Only one of five or six cashiers were wearing anything protective.  On the way I saw a group of ~20 motorcyclists parked on the side of the road talking, standing within arms length of one another, wearing no obvious protection. I work for the DoD and we now have more-or-less mandatory masks for those going on station to do limited operations.  If you can't maintain six feet, but we're "strongly encouraged" in all cases, which in military speak means "you better do it, even if we can't technically order you to."
    • Why distinguish their salaries from everyone else’s on the team?    They would all be saved in that situation.    And I hope that doesn’t happen.    I won’t feel the slightest bit good about the O’s not having to pay Davis and Cobb if that means there’s no baseball this year. 
    • What’s your point? Queen played more of a OLB/DE role in college and the same with Braun. Both are expected to move to MLB at the NFL level.   Sure a blind squirrel will occasionally find a nut! Most 3rd and 4th round picks are filler. Mosley was a good player and drafted by the Ravens late in the 1st. What the Ravens need is their next great MLB. That’s the guy I’m after!
    • The major thing it means for the O's is that  a missed 2020 season would save them $37M.   23M for Davis and 14M for Cobb.  Davis will have 2/46M remaining on his contract and Cobb will have 1/15M left.  
    • I grew up in upstate New York but have been an Oriole fan since I was about seven years old.  There weren’t a lot of other Oriole fans in the area. The highlight of my ballplaying career came between my junior and senior years in high school, while I was attending a summer program at Cornell University.  A couple of intramural softball games were organized for the summer students, with the teams organized according to the dorms in which we lived. Before the first game, the captain asked what position everyone would like to play.  I said I’d prefer first base, but another fellow also said he’d prefer first base.  Turned out he was the All-Star first baseman for his high school league in Maryland.  I couldn’t match those credentials, so the captain put me at second base.  I’d never played much second base, but at least I had some idea of the fundamental things a second baseman should do. There came a situation where the other team had a runner on first with one out and a weak hitter at the plate.  The hitter swung and produced a dinky little popup in front of the plate, not very high.  The pitcher charged in, the catcher charged out, and I realized there was a possibility that they could collide and the ball could drop.  But I also realized that the runner couldn’t leave first until he saw whether the ball was going to be caught or not.  I moved to cover second, because if the ball was dropped, we could still have a chance for a force play. The pitcher and catcher collided and the ball dropped.  The runner started from first and I hollered “Second!  Second!” The pitcher heard me, grabbed the ball, and made a hurried throw.  The throw was on line and in plenty of time, but it was low, and I could see it was going to get to me on the short hop. I got down on one knee, so that if I didn’t catch the ball, I could at least block it and keep it on the infield.  But I kept my toe on the base in case I did catch it. Well, I caught it.  The runner was out. The pitcher and catcher congratulated me on a good play.  So did the third baseman and shortstop.  But the compliment I will always treasure came from the first baseman – the guy from Maryland. He looked at me and said, “Man – you played that one like an Oriole.”
