What's with the Yusniel regression?

Recommended Posts

I think the Dodgers front office is a lot smarter than last year's O's front office and sold high.   I think Diaz has plenty of tools and talent, but he needs to start showing something soon.

Tend to agree.  Our front office could sell him to fans as a 'headliner.'  Dodgers knew he was overrated, and I wouldn't be surprised if Duquette and company knew, too.

I'm not sure if it's a nagging injury thing or a guy who doesn't feel like he deserved to have to repeat AA just going through the motions. The tools were on full display in Spring Training so this is pretty confounding.

Sounds like a makeup thing.

He got many millions of dollars at a very young age. Now he's struggling at AA. I imagine he's going through a tough time.

I didn’t see what substantiated his ranking, but every outlet had him in the top 100, most had him in the top 75. His numbers look consistently ordinary. 

Advanced approach and average or better tools across the board. 

Based on his numbers, it looks like he could just be making a lot of weak contact.  He's continuing to draw walks and not striking out at a terribly high rate.  Perhaps some bad luck?  Hard to say without watching him play.

Interesting stuff here. I kind of also wonder if he's going through the motions down there. He feels like the kind of high energy guy that would do better in the majors than the minors. Or perhaps he's just out of whack mechanically. 

I could see him being a late bloomer.

Impossible to say because Jon doesn't clarify AT ALL. Which is pretty weak for him, honestly. Just going to start rumors that way. He should know better.

The Orioles didn't handle the situation well but even they knew to trade Manny. You realize how much a crapshoot the draft is right? 

Again... (and yes I know I have said this a lot.) They waited too long. We would likely be way ahead of where we are now had they recognized the progression of the division after the Encarnacion walk off in 2016.

Yeah agreed. That Britton return if they traded him after that year would have been ridiculous. And waiting for Machado to be a rental for a couple months hurt his value

You can always ask him, as he seems to point out every time someone criticizes him here.   

Edit - he’s been asked to clarify on Twitter by several people, and hasn’t responded.   So, criticize away!

I believe what I saw in spring training, so I’m not worried about him yet. He has been injured. Prospect development isn’t always linear .

    • From MLBTR: The Brewers added three players to their 40-man roster yesterday in advance of the deadline for teams to set their rosters in advance of the Rule 5 Draft.  As you might expect, “these are not 100 percent easy, clear decisions to make on some players,” Brewers president of baseball operations David Stearns told MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy and other reporters.  While Milwaukee has only 36 players on its 40-man, teams often leave spaces open for future additions or other roster maneuvering prior to December 12, when the Rule 5 Draft takes place.  This means that other teams could select some notable Brewers youngsters who weren’t protected, such as right-hander Zack Brown, currently ranked by MLB.com as the third-best prospect in Milwaukee’s farm system.  Brown was quickly ascending up the minor league ladder and was the Brewers’ minor league pitcher of the year in 2018, though his 2019 numbers (5.79 ERA over his first 116 2/3 innings at the Triple-A level) were a step backwards.  Stearns admitted that these struggles “certainly influenced our decision,” though “we still have high hopes for Zack Brown.”  If Brown is chosen, his new team would have to keep him on its Major League roster for the entire 2020 season to gain his permanent rights, or else the team would have to offer Brown back to Milwaukee.
    • Right, right, I’ve read so many threads I get the subject mixed up between them, I had forgotten what this particular post was about.  In response to your comment, it’s pretty obvious that Mike wants 1) Inexpensive warm bodies who can help us muddle through next year, and 2)  solid prospects with legitimate potential who can possibly help us in subsequent years. This guy seems like the latter. I also wonder if the draft is once more going to be pitching heavy in 2020. If so, that makes it a little bit more likely he’ll be wanting present value in a rule five pick, but we shall have to see.
    • Former Orioles right-hander Mike Wright has a deal to pitch next year in the Korean Baseball Organization. Wright, 29, posted a 9.45 ERA and 2.025 WHIP in 10 relief appearances with the Orioles and a 6.75 ERA and 1.813 WHIP in nine games with the Mariners, who acquired him in an April 24 trade and later outrighted him. https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2019/11/os-progressing-toward-deal-with-anthony-sanders-as-first-base-coach.html

    • He is significantly more legit than Dan Clark. He can be brash but he puts in the work.  And also, he hates Dan Clark    
    • I don't think trying to copy Dan Clark counts.
