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.

    • I think that as always, there are some fans that cross the line.  Hate to see that, because it is totally unnecessary.  At the end of the day, Zack Greinke has overcome a lot to have an excellent career and will very likely go to the Hall of Fame.  I am not sure what those taunting fans will accomplish in their lives, but I am willing to bet it will be much less.

    • Encarnacion definitely looks the part, you see him on a good day and I wouldn't blame anyone thinking he's a top 10 prospect in the system. There are a bunch of above average tools and good bat speed. It's the skills part of baseball that is holding him back. His footwork can get wonky at 3B and is the cause of most of his errors, but it is improved and I think he'll be an average glove there eventually. The big issue is a poor approach and terrible pitch recognition. He's a total guess hitter, he can hit spin if he's sitting on it, but it's a total guess style, he doesn't adjust or waste pitches and sometimes he gets caught in between which is even worse. I'm concerned that those are things that don't usually improve out of nowhere. But the ceiling is still average to above average regular, but it's a really low probability outcome and the floor is not making it out of AA.  Carmona looked good at 2B the few games I watched and he still has quick hands and good bat speed, but the swing mechanics are still a mess. He's rarely loaded and ready to attack on time which leads to weak contact and rolling over on pitches frequently. I'm not sure why he played so sparingly, so it's possible an injury hindered his performance. The ceiling isn't quite as high as Encarnacion, but his issues are more fixable IMO.  These guys have pretty serious flaws and neither fits the definition of hitterish, so they'll be a good test of the Orioles new player development machine, it'd be a good sign if they could get one of these two straightened out. 
    • Akin, Hays, and Harvey on OD roster.  Mountcastle after the service clock issues.  Tate as an up/down guy till he pitches well enough to stick. I think that’s it in terms of “prospects”.  Diaz might get a Sept callup but most likely the Mountcastle treatment.  If Akin didn’t get a call up last year then I don’t see any of the SP prospects getting called up either.   No point to rush to start service clocks in a 100 loss season.  
    • @Luke-OH or anyone else, what’s your take on these two guys, 3B Encarnacion(21) .648 OPS in Delmarva https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=encarn000jea SS Jean Carmona(19) .561 OPS in Aberdeen in only 25 games.  https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=carmon000jea  
    • Zero. Waiver claims if we do. We’re staring at, Means, Bundy, Cobb, Wojo, Akin for next year. With Brooks and Ynoa as depth in the MLB bullpen. We’ll likely see a 14 man pitching staff(if allowed). Also keep in mind that players must be in the minors for 15 days and not 10 once they get optioned. Plus position players can only pitch if their team is losing or winning by 6+ runs.  With all that being said, I think we’re going to see us be forced to carry arms in the pen that can go multiple IP. Basically SP. Especially considering we do not want to touch the prospects in AAA next year at all. See Akin this year.  It would be a little crazy for us to not start the year with Ynoa, Brooks, and two others like them in the bullpen. 
    • The big takeaway for me from this thread is that our window to realistically compete doesn’t start till 2023. We have to pay Davis in 20-22. Cobb in 20-21.  We might give it hell in 2022 with the guys in AA-AAA now, plus AR, Hall, and Rodriguez, but we’re In no position to even sign a FA until then.  I don’t know what type of deals Elias will get offered, but the smart things to do would be to Mancini, Bundy, and Givens. Villar is a given. Then get top draft picks from losing in 20-22.  After the 2022 draft we should be taking the field with a cheap, talented roster, with a farm system ready to sustain a run.
