OPS is almost up to .400! Definitely a big jump for a player than just turned 18. Hopefully he can put together a few good weeks and with work in instructs and spring training, start in Delmarva next year, but that is no sure thing.

Hey, if he increases his OPS by 100 points each week, he'll be fine.  Otherwise, it's time to write him off.

He's on the young side for a H.S. senior just turning 18.  I would be pleasantly surprised to see him play well enough to start next season in Delmarva, but I'm expecting Aberdeen for 2020. 

Remember Adam Hall was a second round out of H.S. and wasn't able to break with Delmarva the season after he was drafted.  He's turned out okay.

Hall also only played 2 games in the Gulf Coast League before a pretty bad oblique strain (tear) took him down and cut into a large chunk of his off season.

Looks like he’s still figuring out his lower half, adjusting his timing to pro velocity. But he creates excellent bat speed with very minimal load.

He looked like a dead pull hitter in those quick shots. I hope that was just the ABs but you can see the quick hands and the swing is not too long.

2-2 with a 2B and 2 walks today. The GCL seems like a tough place to hit but it's good to see he's not totally overwhelmed.

Weather has been pretty miserable even by FL standards.  The rain finally started letting up this week.

    • Beat me to it. This team is starting Steve Wilkerson, Maikel Franco and Pedro Severino almost everyday. The lowest ERA of any current active starter is 5.95. The bullpen has three relievers with an ERA under 4.07. Pat Valaikia has the most PAs at 2B and has a .529 OPS. No outfielder has an OPS over .700 besides Cedric Mullins.  Outside of that we're probably just cursed. lol  
    • Yep, he hasn't hurt us or cost us a game this year.   At worst he's taken a roster spot that some slightly less bad reliever might have taken.   But we can't DFA him until after the season if we want to keep him. The decision to keep him or not will be based in entirely on how he projects in the minds of Elias and company, not how he pitches now.
    • Maybe not, but I also worry about how much of his immense 2021 gains will evaporate without whatever it is that he has been putting on his fingers. If we could get a Bedard-like deal for him right now, I think it is something that should be considered very seriously, especially since being competitive by 2023 seems more and more like a pipe dream with the early returns (or lack thereof) on the first batch of prospects like Akin, Kremer, Zimmerman, Lowther, etc. Hell, I would even consider selling high on Mullins at this point. Between Means, Mancini, Mullins, and Fry, and the virtually unprecedented rate of injuries this year, we could absolutely clean up at the deadline with an eye on 2023 or, more realistically, 2024.
    • Good article here: https://www.mlb.com/news/baltimore-orioles-2021-draft-preview Callis: This is not a good Draft for college bats, especially at the top. There is [Louisville catcher] Henry Davis, and then there is a dropoff. But there are four really good high school shortstops. At least a couple of those guys could be available at No. 5. And there's two really good college pitchers in [Vanderbilt righties] Jack Leiter and Kumar Rocker. And there's an excellent high school pitcher in [Oklahoma prep righty] Jackson Jobe. … While I don't think it's a deep Draft, I think the Orioles are in a good spot at pick No. 5, where they're going to get a really good player. … Unless they [make some] kind of deal or something, which has been rumored, they're going to get a player who might be on pretty equal footing with the guy who does go number one.
    • Sonny Boy Williamson! My bad. Zepp did it too but just another cover. A very GOOD cover, but just another...    
    • Well, you aren’t putting all your eggs in his basket.  They could pay him #1 money and still be able to draft a lot of players they like.
    • Sideys from my newest... First is... an old Muddy Waters? I think...
