Gotta like the Rizer, and Welk, signed early.  They came to play. They lead the team in PA and OPS. 

They certainly have started off real good. Welk has quite the hit tool, but limited power so far.

There was a thread about a good JUCO/community college coach signing with the O's to be the hitting coach at Aberdeen. Do you think the early success of Rizer (Welk and others as well) has to do with that coach, good drafting, or just being old for the league? Or all of those things? 

Here’s an article on hitting coach Tom Eller from the start of Aberdeen’s season.   https://www.cecildaily.com/spotlight/elkton-s-tom-eller-settling-in-as-ironbirds-hitting-coach/article_0a1e9c54-b65e-50bd-bab5-0dbadc9bfcdb.html

Someone pointed out in the draft thread that Craig lewis, was is hitting over .400 in GCL, just got the promotion to aberdeen. I am hoping this means a corresponding promotion for Mr. Rizer!

Lewis, Fontana, and Kehe (must be injured) all seem like possibilities for Delmarva's OF next year but that would mean jumping Stowers, Watson, and/or Rizer to Frederick.

It appears that he's a late riser - in comparison to Lewis.

So... if you're working with a genie, does he owe you any more wishes?

Rizer 2 for 4 tonight with a triple and a walk. His line through 15 games at Delmarva sits at .333/.394/.400.

Does he start at Frederick next year?

I think he probably should as he will be 23. A 2020 Frederick outfield with Jaylen Ferguson in center, and Doran Torchin, Robert Neustrom and Rizer at the corner outfield spots and occasional DH makes sense to me.

Didn't Rizer play center in college? What's the word on his defense?

He hasn't played center yet in Delmarva, though he did in Aberdeen. Horvath and Watson have covered CF since Rizer has been at Delmarva. Watson is the other real candidate to start in Frederick next year as he was a third round pick out of college but he hasn't done a ton with the bat at either Aberdeen or Delmarva so I'm not sure he has earned it. I am also curious to hear what scouts think of Rizer's defense.

Hit his first Delmarva home run tonight. .307/.358/.420 through three plate appearances tonight in his 22nd game with Delmarva.

    • I don't imagine Mason Williams will be able to play the next few days so we will probably get to see more of Hays on this homestand.
    • From a purely impersonal point of view, I agree with you.    But in the real world, guys who have been with the club most of the year and have made some contributions aren’t going to be completely cut off.    They’ll get tossed a bone here and there.     And yes, I realize that one can debate whether Smith or Wilkerson  “made some contributions.”    
    • It was intended as a wisecrack.    The mores of 1976 weren’t the same as today.    Believe me, Weaver said a lot worse.     As to Cuellar, I understand Weaver made the remark after Cuellar complained about not getting enough starts in 1976, a year in which he went 4-13 with a 4.96 ERA (66 ERA+).    To me it was just Weaver’s colorful way of saying that he felt he’d given Cuellar plenty of chances that year.    Not a comment on Cuellar’s overall performance during his career.    And my point in quoting Weaver was that Cuellar got a lot more chances that year than a pitcher without his track record would have gotten.     Even Earl Weaver believed that a guy who had earned it over a long period of time deserved some rope.   Buck was far from alone in that regard.   
    • They have to many players on the team.  I think they should be evaluating the guys who need evaluating.  I think we can close the book on Smith and Wilkerson.
    • I would keep Villar.  He is a good major league player.  We have too few of them to give them away.
    • It was a cheap shot on his first wife as well.
    • I haven't done the full 40-man eval but I'd protect him over the other guys you listed. Would the plus curve and the slider that is more slurrvy, I think he's got a pretty good chance of being a solid bullpen arm. From July to the end of the year batters slashed .147/.284/.206/.490 off him with a 0.47 ERA over 19.1 IP with 22 Ks and 11 BBs. Agreed the fastball command needs to tighten up a bit but at 93-95, it has enough on it to keep guys honest even when he not commanding as well.
