Spotrac has it as this one. Not that they are reliable. Just a tool.

Seems like there is room for lots of confusion with international signings. 

It's 100% from the 2018-2019 period, he's been playing for the DSL team from before the 2019-2020 period opened.

All of the above. Just was listening to Bordick and Hunter hyping Richie Martin like he was a future superstar. 

Ha Ha, I missed that entirely. I thought you were referring to Gunnar!!

Nope. No confusions. People just want what they want. I think we have a good handle on the signing periods. It is just the folks who blog about it that get confused. Luke is pretty much on this.

All 27 players are either pitchers, SS, OF and 1 catcher.  Not that they will all stick to SS, but that lends me to believe that they were all some of the most athletic players on their respective teams.

That fits the same model we saw from Elias during the Amateur draft.

As a first step this is a really good day for the organization. By signing 27 guys on day one, it showed they were not getting the leftover guys that they had in the past.

Unfortunately, the more I read on how this process works it's apparent that we may not really see how good Perez/Elias are until 2020 or really 2021 J2 period. The way the system is set up, teams are now making "behind the scenes" agreements with 14-year olds now which means the Buscones now have to start "training" talent at 12 which means they are now "scouting" 10 year olds. It really is all quite ridiculous, but it's how the game is played over there.

Perez may very well be laying the groundwork for these 14-15 year olds for the 2020 and 2021 signing periods now. 

As for the talent they brought in, if you use signing slot bonuses of the amateur draft, the best the Orioles signed were 4th-5th round talent (4th round slot was $538,000 and 5th round slot was $402,000 this year).

The Orioles top for signings by bonuses were reportedly: (As reported by MASN/Melewski)
* OF Luis Gonzalez, 475-K
* SS Leonel Sanchez, 400-K
* LHP Luis Ortiz, 400-K
* RHP Moises Chace, 225-K

So let's call that an additional 4th rounder, two 5th rounders, and a 7th rounder ($235,100 slot).

While these kids are mostly 16-years old and it's hard to know how they will develop, there's definitely nothing wrong with adding additional talent into a system that needs additional talent.

    • Correct. He and clement had cup of coffees.
    • To state the obvious, some drafts are better than others, both regarding the amount of talent available and the choices made by the teams.      To illustrate, I had a brief look at the top 30 picks in every draft from 2000-2014.    I stopped after 2014 because many of the players picked in 2015 or later are still in the minors or have only played 1-2 years in the majors, so the data on those years is woefully incomplete.    Even in this synopsis, the data on years from 2010 on are still very much in progress.    But, I think you can determine which drafts were strong and which were weak, in terms of available talent and the wisdom of the choices. 2000 Players over 10 WAR: 4 Players over 0.0 WAR: 6 Players who made the majors: 16 Top 5: Utley 64.4 (15), A. Gonzalez 43.6 (1), Wainwright 40.5 (29), Baldelli 10.2 (6), S. Burnett 5.9 (19)   2001 Players over 10 WAR: 5 Players over 0.0 WAR: 15 Players who made the majors: 19 Top 5: Mauer 55.3 (1), Teixeira 50.6 (5), Prior 16.6 (2), Floyd 15.7 (4), Lowry 10.0 (30)   2002 Players over 10 WAR: 11 Players over 0.0 WAR: 18 Players who made the majors: 24 Top 5: Greinke 71.0 (6), Hamels 59.5 (17), Cain 29.1 (25), Span  28.1 (20), Fielder 23.8 (7)   2003 Players over 10 WAR: 7 Players over 0.0 WAR: 18 Players who made the majors: 22 Top 5: Markakis 34.2 (7), Hill 24.4 (13), Danks 20.2 (9), Billingsley 17.2 (24), Maholm 11.9 (8)   2004 Players over 10 WAR: 6 Players over 0.0 WAR: 22 Players who made the majors: 27 Top 5: Verlander 71.6 (2), Weaver 34.6 (12), Walker 20.0 (11), S. Drew 15.9 (15), Butler 11.9 (14)   2005 Players over 10 WAR: 12 Players over 0.0 WAR: 20 Players who made the majors: 26 Top 5: Braun 46.8 (5), McCutchen 44.8 (11), Tulowitzki 44.5 (7), Zimmerman 38.5 (4), Gordon 35.0 (2)   2006 Players over 10 WAR: 7 Players over 0.0 WAR: 17 Players who made the majors: 23 Top 5: Kershaw 67.9 (7), Scherzer 60.1 (11), Longoria 56.0 (3), Lincecum 19.6 (10), Kennedy 17.6 (21)   2007 Players over 10 WAR: 6 Players over 0.0 WAR: 16 Players who made the majors: 22 Top 5: Price 39.4 (1), Heyward 36.9 (14), Bumbarner 36.8 (10), Porcello 19.8 (27), Wieters 18.2 (5)   2008 Players over 10 WAR: 7 Players over 0.0 WAR: 20 Players who made the majors: 26 Top 5: Posey 41.8 (5), G. Cole 23.8 (28 – not signed), Hosmer 16.7 (3), Lawrie 15.6 (16), J. Castro 12.1 (10)   2009: Players over 10 WAR: 6 Players over 0.0 WAR: 17 Players who made the majors: 22 Top 5: Trout 72.8 (25), Strasburg 33.5 (1), Pollock 19.2 (17), Minor 17.7 (7), Leake 16.9 (8)   2010 Players over 10 WAR:  7 Players over 0.0 WAR: 14 Players who made the majors: 21 Top 5: Sale 45.3 (10), Machado 36.7 (3), Harper 31.8 (1), Yelich 31.8 (23), Grandal 17.2 (12)   2011 Players over 10 WAR: 9 Players over 0.0 WAR: 23 Players who made the majors: 27 Top 5: Rendon 29.1 (6), Lindor 27.6 (8), Springer 25.4 (11), Cole 23.9 (1), S. Gray 18.1 (18)   2012 Players over 10 WAR: 5 Players over 0.0 WAR: 15 Players who made the majors: 21 Top 5: Correa 24.5 (1), C. Seager 15.7 (18), Stroman 14.7 (22), A. Russell 10.7 (11), Gausman 10.0 (4)   2013 Players over 10 WAR: 2 Players over 0.0 WAR: 15 Players who made the majors: 22 Top 5: Bryant 23.9 (2), J. Gray 10.1 (3), T. Anderson 8.7 (17), M. Gonzales 6.2 (19), Renfroe 6.1 (13)   2014 Players over 10 WAR: 5 Players over 0.0 WAR: 15 Players who made the majors: 20 Top 5: Chapman 19.8 (25), Nola 19.4 (7), T. Turner 14.1 (13), Conforto 12.4 (10), Freeland 10.6 (8)   The 2002, 2005 and 2011 drafts were pretty amazing, both in terms of the number of players chosen in the top 30 who reached the majors and the ones who were/are pretty good.    If I get a chance, I'll add to this post some of the better players who were chosen outside the top 30.      Note that only 20 of 75 players chosen in the top 5 in this 15-year period have actually been among the top 5 of the first 30 chosen players: 7 no. 1's, 4 no. 2's, 3 no. 3's, 3 no. 4's and 3 no. 5's.      We'll see how the class of 2020 pans out.    
    • Here is a list of the top 5 selections for college bats for the last 17 years.  Everyone made it to the majors with 13 having good to great careers.   The O’s should draft a college bat either Torkelson or Martin. 2000 none 2001 Teixeira 2002 none 2003 Weeks 2004 none 2005 Gordon, Clement, Zimmerman, Braun 2006. Longoria 2007 Wieters 2008 Alvarez, Posey 2009 Ackley, Sanchez 2010 none 2011 none 2012 Zunino 2013 Bryant 2014 schwarber 2015 Swanson, Bregman 2016 Senzel, Ray 2017 none    
    • My bad, it was Jeff clement.   Both he and Sanchez did have a cup of coffee in the bigs.
    • I do not want any of those widespread issues brought up by you or discussed in this thread.    Please, no response. 
    • I’m sure they were blinded by all the shinny new objects that Hall was buying them.
