Austin Hays called up

Apparently he is on the bench, as he is pinch hitting now.

From the bench?  He is going to be susceptible to pitches on the outside corner.  😛

The umpire isn't calling the outside corner, so he should be fine.

I didn't see him out there during batting practice though, but he might have already been in the clubhouse.

Thanks.  

I'm more confused now though.  I thought he got the call up because he couldn't play in AFL.  This tweet says otherwise.

All he has to do is show he can hit at this level. Hays can obviously handle center.

And stay healthy. Would be awesome if 2/3 of next year’s outfield is Hays and Santander. And Mancini gets shifted to 1B/DH.

Is it too early to give up on Stewart as a competent outfielder?

I'd say so.  He's always been in danger of being passed tho.

I’d give Stewart next spring training to straighten himself out as a defender. I’m thinking the problem might be mental right now as opposed to being the next Delmon Young in the outfield.

Hard to imagine things not starting out that way. No reason to think Hays wouldn't do well in ST considering the nature of it all and all the minor leaguers that will be pitching to him. I mean, we really don't have anyone to compete with him for CF and I don't consider Wilkerson an option. It is a little concerning that Hays has struggled against major league pitching thus far in his career, so his performance this month should supply some much needed information. Still much too early to say anything for sure, though. Certainly, staying healthy is a must and another concern. He still has a lot to prove, but the time has certainly come for him to do so especially next season.

BBs softly and carries a long stick.

I wonder if Hays is ready for major league pitching.

The number of games remaining is so small, his results won’t tell us much one way or the other.

Its not what it tells us.  Its what it tells Elias, Sig and Hyde.  I bet they analysize the heck out of how he does in September.

How much did DSJR's April tell us?

    • Wells threw 2 more clean innings yesterday, striking out one.   His ERA is now 0.66 in 13.2 IP, with a 1.02 WHIP.
    • Fanfest is an off-season event to get the fans excited about the season.  A minor league game played at Camden Yards before or after the season isn't getting anyone excited about the season.  Maybe it is a nice thing for the minor league players who will never get to play in Camden Yards otherwise.  I don't see it getting fans excited about the season.  And it is also free to Season ticket holders.  They get to hear from players and management.  The free fanfest and the in season q&a for season ticket holders with GM and manager were nice features of being a season ticket holder. While a Bowie vs Norfolk game might be something that appeals to you I doubt it would get anyone to pony up for season tickets or buy more game Oriole game tickets. 
    • While I'll never root for the Yanks, part of me almost wanted them to demolish everyone else and stand astride MLB with a metaphorical spear driven through the league.  Cackling maniacally, flaunting their $650M in revenues. It's not completely a coincidence that the Yanks utterly dominated the 1950s, and in the early 60s we got expansion, the draft, teams moving everywhere... Only when the Evil Empire crushes everyone do we stand a chance of MLB really taking proactive steps to subdue them. But I'll take them losing the pennant.
    • WAR is just a framework.  And an open source one at that.  As better metrics evolve you just plug those in.  Right now there's nothing stopping anyone from using Statcast data for outfielder defense in WAR.  Someone may not like how bb-ref or Fangraphs implements some part of WAR.  That's fine.  They should come up with their own value and use that instead.  But they should be prepared to defend it, because like I said, this is all open source. 
    • How so? He pitched a scoreless eighth inning, in the set-up role he's had the whole season. And he barely got through it unscathed despite loading the bases.
    • I always root for the AL representative to the Series....it is just my way.
