Austin Hays called up

Question...... does a continued strong finish and a strong AFL return him to a top 100 prospect?  In turn I assume that would improve the O’s overall ranking.

I don’t think so.   Also, depending on how much he plays over the final 9 games, he may exceed the 130 PA limit to retain rookie status (which is also observed in assembling prospect lists).    Hays is at 96 PA now.

Hays stood on the track, let out a yell and pounded his chest three times. With such force that he probably left a bruise. He also raised his cap to Guerrero, returning the gesture.

“I love that stuff,” Hyde said. “I love guys showing emotion. I love how it fired him up and it fires the dugout up. Just a big-time play.”

“It’s just raw emotion,” Hays said. “You don’t get to do something like that every day. It’s few and far between when a play like that happens. That was just my excitement coming out.

“I saw some guys tipping their caps, so I tipped my cap back. I saw Vlad Jr. kind of take his helmet off, kind of give me recognition for making the catch, just a lot of excitement from all the guys reaching up and making that.”

Playing devil’s advocate...

Elias was certainly happy to point out the improvement in the Orioles status within prospect rankings at a presser following the conclusion of the minor league season.   

Hays might want to be eligible to compete for ROY in 2020.

Does Mason Williams get 2 or 3 starts to prove he’s OK?  (Starting Wilkerson or Santander in CF at this point would seem a bit ridiculous).

Same article:

”Unbelievable,” Mancini said. “He comes out and he plays with fire. I hate this saying, but 110 percent. He just plays so hard in the right way, so that was awesome to see, just the raw emotion after the catch. I’m really happy he’s back up here and healthy and showing everybody what he can do because he’s a really good ballplayer.

“It was just an incredible play and I’m glad I got a front row seat for it.”

Should every great catch saving a run be celebrated? Beat your chest celebrated? These games could go on for days. Again, I'm not anti celebration, but spare me from the chest thumping this season. No hitters aside.

It doesn’t slow down the game.  That fired me up.  It was great to see an Oriole play with such emotion.

Just for the record, I'm a huge Hays fan. I saw him in Frederick many times, I'm rooting for him. I just don't get the beating on the chest after making a catch in a meaningless game, in a meaningless season. Again, just my opinion. That doesn't mean it's right, just my opinion.

Its a meaningless game for the 2019 Orioles, but not for Austin Hays.  He's showing he's a major league ballplayer and he makes major league defensive plays.  The O's and major leagues in general need more excitement.

^^^^^^^^^Listen to this man.   He was a very good defensive outfielder in his day.

If healthy, and that’s always a big if with Hays, he should be our CF to start 2020. 

Maybe I’m greedy, but seeing Hays have this success makes me wonder what if we had called up Mountcastle too.

I will be very disappointed if Hays isn’t the starting center fielder on opening day 2020. And I think he will be if he’s healthy. He will play his butt off in spring training.

Good solid catch but I thought the chest thumping was a bit much. Act like you make that catch every time because you should. It's not like he saved Game 7.

That was more than a good solid catch and it's far from caught every time.

    • I guess the O's hadn't used the cheating technology yet.        
    • Does Cashner require an MLB deal?  Colon would at least draw some press. 
    • I think that was a great win.  Indiana scored on every single trip down the floor to start the second half.  It had to be 13 times down and 13 scores.  Even when they missed, they got the offensive rebound and scored.  I don't think they even made any free throws in that stretch.....it was all made baskets. Sometimes, the other team just decides to try harder and stops missing shots and they did a great job.  This had loss written all over it, so I have to give credit to the Terps for winning a game that they should have lost....which is very rare in the Turge era. 
    • I did in fact create a spreadsheet.     As mentioned, many of the pitchers were on the BA list more than once.    So, I've sorted them into four buckets according to the highest ranking they attained. BA 1-25:  30 pitchers achieved this level, and that group averaged 12.5 rWAR.     Of the 31 pitchers I categorized as "reliable starters," from this bucket you have four of the No. 1 Studs (Kershaw, Price, Strasburg and Bumgarner), one of the Solid No. 2's (Teheran), two of the Mid-Rotation guys (Buchholz and Porcello) and eight of the Middle/Back of Rotation guys (Bailey, Anderson, Tillman, Cahill, M. Perez, Hellickson, Moore and Wheeler).    So, that's 15 of the 30 who became reliable starting pitchers by my definition.  Two of the Stud Relievers, Davis and Chapman, also came from this bucket. BA 26-50: 26 pitchers achieved this level and the group averaged 7.3 rWAR.    The group includes one No. 1 Stud (Cueto), four Solid No. 2's (Gonzalez, Carrasco, Zimmermann and Chacin), one Mid-Rotation guy (Kennedy) and three Mid/Back of Rotation guys (Jurrjens, Holland and Gibson).    Nine out of 26 became reliable starters.   Stud reliever Britton also came from this category. BA 51-75: 23 pitchers reached this level, averaging 6.1 rWAR.   They include one No. 1 Stud (Scherzer), one Solid No. 2 (Arrieta), one Mid-Rotation guy (Leake), and two Mid/Back of Rotation guys (Niese and Cashner).   5 of 23 became reliable starters. BA 76-100: 20 pitchers were in this bucket.    Only two became reliable starters: Samardzija in the Mid-Rotation category and Jonathan Niese in the Mid/Back of Rotation category. Hall and Rodriguez both fall into the second bucket for now, though it's possible they could move up in future years.
