My candidates for MiL player/pitcher of the month

Recommended Posts

I think you're right, but DL Hall's numbers are borderline ridiculous given his walks. They just can't hit that kid. He must really have electric stuff. He gave up 10 hits in the month of July, and 11 walks.

Mildly reminiscent of Tanner Scott, who allowed 4.1 H/9 at Frederick but walked 7.8 per 9 there.    I don’t think Hall is as wild as Scott, but the walks do concern me.   Among other things, he’s not getting deep into games because his pitch count gets high.

I would give it to Baumann this month as well. He was electric, and it came after a promotion. Really great stuff in July for that kid.

Now the position players.    There were more viable candidates than I realized.   I’ve listed them in order of level, with their OPS, HR, RBI

Jace Peterson, 1.297, 4, 8 (14 games)

Ryan Mountcastle, .895, 4, 15

Mason Williams, .872, 4, 15

Austin Hays, .854, 6, 18

DJ Stewart, .828, 6, 17

Yusniel Diaz, .867, 3, 22

Ryan McKenna, .822, 3, 15

Jomar Reyes, .962, 3, 15

Patrick Dorrian, .879, 3, 15

Zach Jarrett, .844, 5, 15

Johnny Rizer, .841, 2, 12

Zack Watson, .806, 5, 13

Toby Welk, .850, 1, 12

Pretty tight, but my pick would be Reyes, who easily had the highest OPS of anyone who played a full month.    His slash line breakdown was .379/.404/.558.

Peterson was spectacular over 14 games, but he’ll have to settle for being in the major leagues as his reward. 

I could also make a good argument for Diaz, who put up his numbers in a very pitcher-friendly league and knocked in the most runs of anyone in the organization.  But, I’m going with Reyes.

I think Diaz will be the pick, as the tie tends to go to the better prospect when there isn't an obvious choice.

Glad Reyes is showing some improvement, he has spend 384 games at Frederick but is still only 22, hopefully he will finally make the jump to Bowie next year.

Yeah but has to go on 40 man roster this year. I doubt they protect him and he hits rule 5 draft will someone gamble on him is  the question.

There is absolutely no way anyone takes Reyes in the Major League rule 5 draft. It is more likely that the Orioles don't protect him on their minor league roster and someone takes him as a pitcher in the minor league phase (I don't think this will happen).

I am not worried about anybody taking Reyes in the Rule 5 draft. His best case scenario long term is probably Rio Ruiz with fewer walks, that isn't the type of player that merits 40-man roster protection before playing at AA.

How are they similar?

Below average power, low batting average,  borderline defense at third.

The best thing that Ruiz offers is the walks and Reyes doesn't have that.

Ruiz minor league triple slash line (albeit at generally a higher level at a lower age than Reyes) is .262/.343/.403

Reyes' line is .268/.313/.393.

I am sure there are players that Reyes is more similar to than Ruiz, but as an Orioles fan he is who springs to mind to me as a borderline defensive third baseman without plus power or hit tool.

Reyes would have to have a breakout season next year at Bowie (or convert to pitcher) to end up back in the prospect conversation.

Facetious question, I realize, but I’m pretty sure it was DJ Stewart, who batted .220 for the month but still had a .340 OBP.    He walked 12 times in 97 PA.

    • @#!% %[email protected]#! %@!$ &%[email protected] In my sim, Hunter Harvey is already hurt.  Thankfully it's not the arm, it's a leg injury.  But he's out for 5 weeks. So I scoured my minors, Marcos Diplan is actually performing well.  So I bring him up.  And what does he do?  First appearance, he drills Tim Anderson, touches off a brawl and gets SUSPENDED FOR NINE GAMES.  Apparently the league felt that Diplan was at fault because Anderson only got 4 games.   At one point I was 5-5 and thinking...hey, this team might not be that bad.  Now I'm 10-24 and wondering how my staff will make it through the season. In other words, it's feeling like the real thing.
    • I for one won't like it.  George Orwell certainly was a prophet, wasn't he?
    • Gregg Olson was a career relief pitcher (never started a game) who was known for his astonishing curveball.  Sometimes he played for the Baltimore Orioles but also sometimes he did not. On April 20th, 1998, at age 31, he was pitching for the Arizona Diamondbacks.  He hadn't taken a live Major League at-bat since 1994.  In the bottom of the 7th, he crushed a 3-2 pitch from Óscar Henriquez into the left-field bleachers, scoring Devon White. What could Gregg have been thinking as he trudged into the batter's box?  Was he thinking, here's a spot for a home run?  I'm looking fastball on the full count?  Here's where I get 2 of my 2 career RBIs?  Was he just saying, aw (freaking heck, jeez Louise), look at all this (stuff) my job is making me do?  And then he launches one.  Sends the big leathery boy into the night.  What was he looking for, trying to do?  Was he going for the big fly, or just trying to put it in play?  How do you hit a 4-bagger if you're going for contact?  Gregg must've been going for it.  He came, he saw, absolutely conquered. What was his reaction?  Diamondbacks crushed the game, his donger was just a grave dance on a defeated opponent, but holy heck.  A live, major league home run you were never supposed to hit.  You'd be psyched for a year.  You'd be giving your significant other the extra spicy treatment for the next decade.  I tell you friends, I'd feel like a god forever.  Here I am, trying to do one job in professional baseball, getting sucked into another, and straight crushing it.  Metaphorically and literally hitting the jackpot.  I'd tell that story to anyone I ever met forever.  Yeah I pitched professional baseball, but let me tell you about the time they made me hit.  Oh, what do you do, sell insurance?  Shut up nerd, I destroyed a baseball on live television. I don't even CARE about opposing pitcher Óscar Henriquez.  I don't even know who the guy is.  Was he a fan-of-the-month they let pitch, and that's why I hit a dinglerooski off him in a 15-4 game?  Go ahead and audit my home run, tell me I'm not legit.  I'm in Baseball-Reference, permanently.  People who do not like it can call the police. What does Gregg Olson do now?  Does he ever think about that home run?  Because I do and it inspires me when I need it to.
    • Are you saying his comeback attempt soured voters?
    • Much like the House in Vegas, the insurance company always wins in the end.
    • I pooped myself that day... In my defense, I was 9 days old!
    • Haha... but the frustration is therapeutic cause it's baseball!
