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.

He had a terrible first two games of his career. Understandable. Since then he’s got a much more reasonable 8K/5BB ratio with a .265 avg and around a .700 OPS.

    • No team was willing to pay that, so I guess he isn't worth that, not right now anyway. 🤷‍♂️
    • He has an .861 career OPS in the minors. .279/.340/.520/.861 https://www.mlb.com/player/chris-shaw-622046?stats=career-r-hitting-minors&year=2020 https://www.fangraphs.com/players/chris-shaw/17738/stats?position=OF
    • Save a few late-season DH plate appearances for Rutschman. I guess if Shaw puts up some really impressive numbers in Norfolk he'll be insurance in the event of injuries or a useful trade piece. 
    • Have you seen him play, or maybe watched video of Shaw? I am about 30 minutes into it, and there is a lot to like and some to not. The major league stats, no. But the 6-04 225-230 pound athletic frame and 70 power that he has shown throughout his minor league time, yes. Looks like the hands work well. His load can be late, sometimes gets the foot down late, and he gets long at times. He sometimes has a leg kick, sometimes not. Maybe get him to simplify the lower half and take some of the hand load out to simplify his timing. He looks like a pull hitter, at least in the Fangraphs spray chart in his MLB time. He moves well for a big guy, but a 40-45 runner. Arm looks like about a 50. I can see why they took him.  He has an option, whereas Nunez did not. LH power bats are not a common thing.  If they like him, they may not waive him for a while, despite the nearly 50% k rate in 82 MLB at bats. Someone else will grab him. I just watched him hit a 468 foot home run , albeit in Colorado, but it was a bomb.  https://www.mlb.com/player/chris-shaw-622046?stats=career-r-hitting-minors&year=2020 https://www.fangraphs.com/players/chris-shaw/17738/stats?position=OF
    • Hard to agree with any of this.  We aren't loaded with LH power.  We have room for him in AAA.  He has an option and if we need the 40 man spot, we can try to DFA him and pass him thru waivers.  And a .947 OPS looks pretty good to me, even in PCL.  Or are you focusing only on 72 MLB at bats in 2 cups of coffee?  This is a minor transaction that could bear fruit at little to no cost or risk.  Why get distraught over this?
    • Eshelman isn't lost yet.  He was DFA, not released.
    • I LOVE electrified, amplified acoustic guitars! There's an OLD video of a guy playing one on a bridge in NYC I think. So loud he was getting feedback, on an acoustic! But I can't remember his name or the song...   edit: looks like Sean Rowe has micro-transducers all over the top of his guitar, get the WHOLE sound.
