Darell Hernaiz 2019

Recommended Posts

I forgot he was still only 17.    He’s not doing much offensively so far, but he certainly still has a lot of time to develop.

I hope it was an over the fencer.  A homer and 2 walks after 3 hits last game.  Good!

Hadn't considered that, good point.

And the game before, he was 1 for 2 with 2 walks.  

I just hope he wears an O's cap to the HOF induction.

8 hits in his last 4 games, after a cold start to his season.   Great to see.    

Now it's Henderson's turn to heat up.  Hopefully.

In 65 PA the just-turned 18-year old has 14 BB's and 15 K's.  Small sample size, granted, but pretty nice to see such patience. 

.216 .385 .294 .679

And we have a 17 year old SS in the Dominican League with 15 BB's and 15 K's.  Perhaps a reflection of what type of players they are now looking for.  Or just one of those kinda coincidental things.

Hey, the mind tends to wander when you're an O's fan with a day off.

...and my mind wanders even on days we play. :D

Hernaiz went 4-4 today with a triple, and also added a walk.

He had been majorly scuffling, with an .086 batting average over his last 11 games (35 at-bats).

He raised his OPS today from .623 to .725.

17 walks on 21 strikeouts over 91 plate appearances on the season. That is a lot of plate appearances without putting the ball in play, but that is the modern game I guess.

Hernaiz had his 4th multi-hit game today in the last 5 games (the first was his 4-4 day discussed above).

His .724 OPS is better than Gunnar Henderson (.687). Hopefully one or both of them learns to play some second base this offseason so that they can both play up the middle in Delmarva. Given their draft position, I think full season ball is an appropriate jump for both, although both were young for their draft class with Hernaiz having turned 18 on August 3 and Henderson on June 29th. This season they have been switching off at SS and DH.

Curious to hear how they look defensively, Hernaiz has committed 1 error in 103 chances, while Gunnar has committed 8 errors in 81 chances. Their range factors are 4.43 and 3.65 respectively. Obviously not a ton of games played, so I want to hear what scouts think.

Maybe Hernais' fielding prowess convinces them to start him at Delmarva next year.  Obvious, it's early, and a few errors would change the numbers dramatically, but Hernais with a .990 fielding percentage through 23 games is impressive.

    • LF Hays made a nice catch for Zimmerman. In Game 1 Mountcastle could not quite get an early count foul pop by Meadows in a PA that I think ended up a 10 pitch walk.  I don’t think OAA reads that foul ball but it did seem like one some LF could get.  Long way but also big hang time.

    • Just got through the DVR, and here's the lead.  My goodness - that mustache.  It goes right to the childhood McGregor Flanagan reptilian brain stem.  It's hard to see almost anything else. At one look, I'd say it's maybe an interesting call between him and Cobb for Game 5 next year, while whatever shenanigans/surgeries with Baumann, Hall, Rodriguez (and to a lesser extent Smith/Lowther) are waited out. I heard the Driveline last offseason report, but that hits me wrong for 4-pitch mix guys.  I think I think the devil's bargain of the Driveline-type proposition is you give feel and get dominance.  I see Savant had him at 30 FB, 10 SL, 10 CH, so will be curious to see if a 4th pitch comes out in Turn 2. Great story, and could certainly be a once through order or up/down guy for peak Rutschman teams but would hazard a guess that his IP count medium to long term is probably negatively correlated with team success.  Akin has splashed the pool to grow the group to 6 of "SP's I hope make 150+ starts/OpenerFollows for the 2021 Orioles", but I think Lopez, Smith and Lowther are more my 7/8/9 guys, never mind the Fulmers and Stewarts of the waiver wire. I do hope Zimmermann and all those others have somewhere to continue hot (warm, at least) games in October, whether in Bowie, or at some Super Arizona Fall League to be named later.  October/November Super Arizona Fall League could be like the Futures Game every day if anything could be concocted after the World Series.  Darn tootin I want to see Grayson Rodriguez trying to get Wander Franco out then.  
    • Not an impressive debut. Zimmermann's command was bad. I hope he settles down for his next appearance. Smith is a good prospect, but he only pitched 30 innings in AA last year and that was the highest he's gotten in the minors. Zimmermann, Akin, and Kremer all logged at least 150 innings between AA and AAA before this year.  Plus, 40 man roster considerations are always a factor. Zimmermann and Kremer both needed to be added this winter anyway to avoid getting picked in the Rule 5 draft. Smith does not till next winter.
    • Zimmerman's stuff, I was impressed enough. Command, quite another conversation. If he can command that stuff, I think he's okay. Good stuff, no command, see, Cabrera, D.
    • I thought Wojo looked like a hard rocker, lead singer of something like "Ancient Leviticus Ceremonies" or such. Also, today was my first look at Zimmerman, and I was thinking "why is an actor from a 70's cop show throwing out the first pitch?"
