What's with the Yusniel regression?

Recommended Posts

Well, people do have a right to privacy in personal matters and some of the medical information could be for HIPAA regulations.  It could just be Elias' way of running the organization.

Good for him. Hopefully everyone is happy and healthy, and Yusniel comes back and has a big 2nd half.

The NFL lists every injury of every player each week and their status for that week's games. There's no reason not to let the fans know what is going on with their team.

The NFL does it because of gambling.

Get over it.   I don’t need every detail about the personal lives of our AA players.    If they’re on the injured list, let me know.  

All the NHL teams ever say is that an injury is “upper body” or “lower body.”

THE NFL does that because of the betting aspect.to the game.

Get over it? That's kind of rude, especially for a place for opinions.

No one said they wanted every. detail of an AA player's lives, just basic information like an injury or personal leave. There is no reason to keep fans in the dark on basic information and it's especially bad when newspaper reporters aren't providing information, like in the case of Sedlock a little earlier.

There is also gambling in baseball.

I think announcing this would be not transparent but over the top. Answering truthfully when asked is in line. He is a minor leaguer. How many times does the organization make birth and marriage announcement for minor leaguers?

Not a fan of that anyway.

Does Diaz have the ability to play CF? With no ML CF on the active roster and Mullins and McKenna having terrible years, there doesn't seem to be an answer at that position. Plus there seems to be a logjam of corner OF-types in this organization. If Diaz can play CF at a competent level, it would resolve the OF issues on this team.

What is the logic for making everything such a secret? If the Orioles' organization is so much more advanced now, you'd think they would have a little more transparency for the fans they are asking to stick with them through rebuilding.

The Orioles aren’t in danger of losing any fan who is tracking the day to day lineup of the AA squad.

I don't believe the Orioles have a prototypical CF of the future in our system unless McKenna or Mullins learn to hit much better. Hays is probably the best suited CF coming from our list of hitters, but that's far from ideal.

Probably not, but it's not national security and has nothing to do with HIPPA when the information comes from the clubs/organization or newspapers/TV/Web sites. Even if it's just listed as a "personal issue" it would let everyone know it's not an injury.

    • Just talking about the general trend that analytic teams realize that arms are more risky, so they're ranking gets slightly dinged to compensate for that. He also didn't pick a pitcher until the 8th round last year. Things like on base skills are harder to mold using modern training, places like driveline are much more effective for pitchers.
    • I guess so.  If they want to have Mize paired with Lacy/Hancock, it's hard to argue with.  Tork does seem to be the consensus #1 pick though.  I am curious when the last time there was a player previously thought to be the consensus #1 pick who didn't go first overall.   
    • Saw a mock draft with us taking Martin and left drafting pitcher Nick Swiney at 30 https://prospects365.com/2020/05/25/ray-butlers-2020-mlb-mock-draft/
    • The Frobster beat me to posting the Melewski interview by 13 minutes.   The article mentions the Os in on quality international prospects that we knew about including Samuel Basallo and Maikol Hernandez and one that I am not sure I have seen mentioned with the Os here - Wilmer Feliciano who will get a signing bonus just under $500k and has big left-handed power.  A reminder that none of these guys are signed, just apparently committed or agreed to the Os until they are signed. It seems like a very strong group of elite prospects given how late our current FO was to the game of signing this upcoming J2 class.   The payoff from these guys is likely years away, but I think there is a chance last year's class and this year's class should start impacting our top 30 prospects entering 2021.  How optimistic is it to think predict our next international signing to reach our top 10 would be by 2022?  
    • Don’t have a subscription, but here’s an interview the author, Ben Badler, gave to Steve Melewski.   https://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2020/06/baseball-americas-ben-badler-on-os-international-effort-video.html At the end of the video, Badler speculates that the next CBA will create an international draft.   He thinks the players will posture about and then “maybe they’ll trade it for a few extra inches of legroom on the bus.”    LOL!    
    • Bad quality vid but its the only one that I found that shows Frohwirth's side of it. Back in that era Martinez grabs some pine 9 out of 10 times with that pitch.
