Edited: Nice game today, going 2 for 3 with an RBI, two walks and a run scored. 

(Non) prospect Dalton Hoiles with second homer and freaking D3 Toby Welk with 2 hits and a ribbie to raise his BA to .358.

Any chance AR goes to the AFL in a few months?

A chance, sure. But I'm guessing they'll take it easy on him after he's done with Aberdeen or Delmarva, whichever team they let him finish up with. 

  • He had 325 PA between two teams in 2017.
  • He then had 308 PA with just Oregon St. in 2018.
  • Thus far in 2019 he's had 309 PA between OSU, GCL, and Aberdeen.

It'll be interesting to see how far he gets this season. Could he get 350-400 PA? We'll see.

I'd assume they use the spots on guys who are closer to the majors/trying to win spots on major league and 40 man rosters.

I saw the game.   The ABs were walk, popout to RF, lineout to deep LCF, strikeout on high FB, strikeout on high FB to end game with tying run on 3rd.

He'd be overmatched by talent in AFL. Right now he can't hit rookie ball pitching.

I do not think rookie leaguers are eligible. I think taxi squad dips as low as A ball.

The only thing I will say about Rutchsman's first 15 minor league games is that I'm not concerned overall, but I am surprised at his lack of production. Really strange to see him struggle against what should be competition he should be pretty good against. 

Saying that, I'm not worried because the talent is there and sometimes guys just don't readjust well that first half of a professional season, but I'm starting to see why it took the Orioles so long to get him into action because he still looks pretty rusty after the layoff. 

On the other hand, Andrew Vaughn is already in High A ball and is slashing .273/.379/.455/.834 in his fist seven games there. Obviously nothing can be assessed after 15 games, but it's a little disappointing to see him struggle early on when the organization and fans really need a guy to bank on. 

The good news is his BB-K ratio is 6-7 and I've seen him make some loud outs, so hopefully it's not too far away.

JJ Abrams (6th overall) slashed 401./442./662/1.104 in AZ rookie ball at 18. He's been moved up to Low-A already.

JJ Abrams was the guy I and two other OH'ers voted for. In addition to that impressive line he was using his plus plus speed to steal almost a base every game. I hate the idea of a catcher at 1-1, and if Abrams turns out to be a stud game changing SS/CF it will really regret that he is not an Oriole

According to Baseball America:

"Clubs will also now be able to nominate any player in their organization to play in the AFL. In the past, only one player below Double-A was allowed per major league organization. Players with more than one year of major league service time were also previously not allowed."

I’m not worried about Adley.  The guy has hit everywhere he’s been the last 2 years, both at Oregon State and for Team USA.  Every player transitions differently into pro ball, and Adley has more on his plate than your typical draft pick.  Let’s not discount the fact that he had a bout of mononucleosis after getting drafted, which I’m sure sapped a lot of his energy, so he’s probably still working his way back to full strength while simultaneously learning a pitching staff and adjusting to pro pitching.  Adley didn’t just suddenly forget how to hit.  I have a feeling we’ll see the real Adley next year once he has a full offseason to rest, get back to full strength and prepare for the rigors of full season baseball.

    • Negative feedback loop. Last off-season they rubbed their fanbase off with their lack of moves and $$$ saving.  Then they lose 2,000 fans a game this past year. Will lose more this year probably. They never fully recovered from blowing it up in the early 2000s. Fans left in droves then and never fully came back. Of course part of that is Cleveland is a city in decline too.
    • It's all about stadiums and quality of the facilities. Harry Grove isn't up to snuff as much compared to Bowie or Norfolk. Also the reason why Hagerstown will go way of the dodo as well. It would cost a fortune that Frederick City or County would never pay to upgrade Harry Grove to meet the standard, or whoever has to pick up that tab in the lease agreement. That and Frederick doesn't make any $ because Ziedelis just tells Ken Young what he wants to hear and is a total kissass while the team loses $ every year. Same with Bowie but bowie has a better stadium in terms of being on par with MLB's requirements. The whole "PAY THE MINOR LEAGUERS" campaign was going to resolve in teams being cut because MLB profits would be effected in a big scale and how shrewd MLB is with costs and revenue historically. I called this a year ago in a baseball discord server and it sucks that I'm right. A "livable wage" (if one exists) would only be paid to minor leaguers if teams were cut in predominantly rust belt, more expensive or poorer areas with lacking facilities, and look where we are. Hopefully a resolution passes and hopefully MiLB and MLB will solve this and keep everyone happy, but I highly doubt that happens. As someone who grew up at Harry Grove as a kid, that's going to really suck seeing the keys fold or go to an independent league. Such is the nature of the beast I suppose.    What'll be interesting I suppose is to see how Manfred looks and acts during this debate because apparently the players and owners might go in for extended talks come 2021 when the CBA expires. This is going to show the players how much they can push against this current Commisioner versus what they could push for with Selig. With that being said, it's looking like Manfred will be going in guns blazing and just wanting his way. The thought that lower minor league teams will have to scout and develop their own talent like they did almost 100 years ago proves how cyclical history is.    For further reading, here's a baseball America article going into detail on what we could be seeing, how the agreement with MiLB works, etc. I have work in the morning and need sleep.  https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/mlb-threat-pushes-negotiations-with-milb-to-another-level/
    • Does the team need both Meleeski and Roch?  Seems they could save some money on cutting one of them.
    • I doubt they sell many of these opening day plans.  
    • We will be picking at end of first round.  I dont think picking for need is smart.  We picked need for Elam and Permian and how did that work out.  Pick the best player as injuries always happen. You can always sign a free agent for needs.
    • Don't mean to throw it in the face of a new guy, but we acquired Rucker because of the Rule V draft and not any inefficiency in the market.  We had space in the Rule V draft because of a lack of high quality depth in our minor leagues that would have been subject to the Rule V draft.  
    • I think the shorter DL is a factor, but long DL stints seem to me up as well.    I thought about trying to break down how many stints there were of different lengths, but perhaps that’s a project for another day.
