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.

    • Good points Drungo! I like the idea of working backwards from the desired outcomes of a system. Goal 1: Service time should no longer be a deciding factor in free agency or player promotion. I think automatic free agency after the age 27 season would be good (or after age 23 if they've never made it to the majors), with a better compensation system worked out between the team that signs and the team that loses the guy in free agency. Maybe a % of the contract value? Goal 2: Significantly reduce the bloated, inefficient system. Limit minor league affiliates to 2 full season teams, 1 short season team, and whatever overseas academies they want. Pay the minor leaguers better. Cut the draft in half (20 rounds).
    • As long as it isn't DJ on horseback! Otherwise I'd worry that the ball would hit the horse square in the forehead, risking career-ending injury to the glove (not whip)-wielding jockey as its knees buckled.
    • When I started this post I didn't know if twenty people would respond or a hundred. More have responded and with some good comments. I didn't say I think Hyde should be fired. I threw out the possibility with Elias terminating a lot of people in the organization. I don't think he will be replaced even though he does questionable things almost every game. The coaches are a different story.  I think several could be replaced and possibly our advance scouts and if Hyde is like most managers he won't replace them. It will have to be Elias who makes the needed changes. Will he ? It looks like Detroit will get the number 1 pick.  I think they are 3 1/2 behind us with 10 to go. 7 vs the White Sox and 3 vs the Twins. We have 3 with Seattle, 3 with Toronto and 3 with Boston. We could lose them all and so could Detroit.  This is going to be hard to predict.  Number 2 is still okay.
    • ^^^^^^^^^Listen to this man.   He was a very good defensive outfielder in his day.
    • Just watched the replay, and timed it.   If he had IMMEDIATELY thrown the ball back in instead of beating his chest, it might have saved 2-3 seconds.  Tonight's game lasted 10,380 seconds according to the box score.   So at the very worst the "celebration" added 0.02% to the time of the game.  Even if a game had 50 such celebrations, it would add roughly 2 minutes to the gametime. One pitching change probably takes 30-50 times longer than the "celebration". You can dislike it all you want, but trying to say it slows down the game is an absolutely absurd stretch of logic to try to support your point.  
    • My 3: Get rid of Davis. He isn't a ML capable player anymore. The money is a sunk cost. Bite the bullet and cut him loose. Find some pitching. Doesn't have to be expensive or flashy. Just a few guys that can get more outs. Tighten up the D. Again, not expensive or flashy, just a bit above average. Next year is year 2 of the rebuild so I'll be patient. These would be prudent goals for now.
    • Its a meaningless game for the 2019 Orioles, but not for Austin Hays.  He's showing he's a major league ballplayer and he makes major league defensive plays.  The O's and major leagues in general need more excitement.
