What's with the Yusniel regression?

Recommended Posts

Diaz 2-3 tonight with a double, a triple and a walk. Brings his OPS up to .800, .258/.330/.470.

15th among those with 137+ ABs in the Eastern League.

Diaz 2-3 today with a walk to finish the season at .262/.335/.472.

Among players with 138 ABs, he was 15th in the Eastern League in OPS.

Among players 24 and younger that had at least 138 ABs he was 10th out of 63 in OPS.

Among players 23 and younger that had at least 138 ABs he was 8th out of 45 in OPS.

Among players 22 and younger that had at least 138 ABs he was 4th out of 19 in OPS.

Since June 12th (one game after this thread started), his line was .291/.364/.558. That .922 OPS would have been good enough for 2nd in the Eastern League, behind 25 year-old, Hunter Owen.

Solid season by Diaz, hope he can stay healthy and be up at some point next season.

 

That's what's up with the Yusniel progression.  Otoh, it's disappointing that he never played in AAA in 2019 considering he played the entire 2018 season in AA with an .841 OPS - granted the majority of it was in the Texas League - not to mention he also played 31 games in AA in 2017.  It seems quite unusual to have a highly rated prospect have 3 seasons at AA without even getting a taste of AAA.

He most likely would have this season, but a slump and injuries derailed it. I'm sure he would have been in Norfolk instead of Ademar Rifaela.

The goal is to lose 100 games next games next year. So we have to justify keeping Diaz in AAA all next year.

Quietly a very impressive year from Diaz, IMO. Needs to get healthy. He's not quite as ready, but I'd take him over Mountcastle if the org was forced to pick one of them. Over Hays too.

Mountcastle is beast.

    • o   In this pandemic-shortened season, the Orioles seem to have lost numerous close, hard-fought games against the Rays.   o
    • I would not think so. We got a lot for Givens. 
    • 8 games left and he is now at 92 at-bats after getting 3 at-bats in each of the last 3 games (11 plate appearances total). Helps keep the at-bats down when the team can't score any runs. Would need 38 at-bats over the final 8 games to lose rookie/prospect eligibility. Mountcastle has only had 5 at-bats in 3 games thus far this season, so the chances of him getting 5 at-bats in 6 of his final 8 games are pretty much non-existent. 
    • As of 9-19 Sisco  0 PB 13 WP -3 dRS -2.7 dWAR  Overall 0.3 fWAR Severino  5 PB 15 WP -1DRS dWAR. 04 Overall .7 fWAR  I included wild pitches Because it can be debatable whether the blame should be on the catcher or the pitcher, but Sisco Is clearly better at stopping pitches. But neither of these guys will make any other team go googly eyed.
    • This is where Sisco is today the 19th. He has improved, in K and BB rats especially, but I don’t think anyone is going to be in a rush to trade anything meaningful for him. His defense remains bad and he offers nothing as a runner.  32.4 K rate .340 BABIP .235 AVG .381 OBP 125 WRC .03 fWAR
    • I’m pretty sure he would be claimed, but that would actually be good for the Orioles. If he does, he gets the benefit of coaching from the new team, and we can watch him develop, or not, on a real life stage. If it is unlikely that he does well Enough to stick, when he returns to us, we will have had the benefit of the empty roster spot, but also the benefit another team coaching, and whatever experience he has on the major league stage, if he gets that far. And when he returns to us, we will have that much more knowledge and can deal with him more effectively. Of course there’s always the risk that he makes it all the way with his new team, and I guess that’s the risk we have to take. After all, TJ McFarland has had a pretty good career throwing in the upper 80s.
