The Orioles signed Ty Moore this past week. As far as I can tell, he hasn't played since 2018 in the Frontier League where he was a corner outfielder and wasn't even the best hitter on his team. He refers to himself as a former player on social media. His signing was reported on Baseball America as a player, but I'm wondering if he was actually signed as a developmental coach or a fundamentals coach rather than as a player.

He never actually played for the Winnipeg Goldeyes, he play one game for the Sioux City team in the AA and then was apparently cut. He played that season in the Frontier League.

I’m betting you’re right.

With the release of Collin Woody and Chris Madera, this makes sense. Those were two of the "players who are learning to coach and act as Development Coaches."

Roch announced some minor league signings. Many of the players known to be free agents who were not on Baseball America's list are included, so these signings aren't necessarily recent. Mason Williams and Cristian Alvarado probably the most notable, along with Ryan Ripken for a different reason.

Malquin Canelo and Rob Zastryzny are the only ones that weren't previously in the org.

 

Oops, and Angelo Mora. He was a former O's rule5 guy that the Dodgers took from us.

Ángelo Mora as well. 

Mora and Canelo are no-bat, glove first middle infield types, both org types or utility IF depth at best.

Zastryzny seems like a reasonable addition to the back of the Norfolk rotation competition who could be an emergency call-up, should be an upgrade over some of the starters last year like Ortiz, Herb, Ysla, etc. We probably could have used him more last year than this coming year as we should have a reasonable Norfolk rotation with all of the pitchers who were successful last season at Bowie.

    • Elias has said he wants to establish something like the Tampa model where you are playing competitive baseball while also maintaining a constant influx of new talent. I don't think you have to pick #1 to do that. In fact he should relish the thought of finding value with lower picks. 
    • o   Yep. I was just trying to get the thread going for the bullpen at-large, not necessarily asserting that the statistic that I cited was anything to draw much conclusion from.   o
    • It is very early, but I think our very early good start reflects a MLB team that is trying to win every game and a front office that is supporting that team at least through the analytics group.  It is difficult to imagine any positive results where we actually escape the worst five teams in the league, especially after losing Villar and Mancini.   We do have some guys on the roster with upside and it is Ruiz and Alberto with the early start and, as the article mentions, Iglesias has not been a positive hitter since 2013 - lol!   From a 10,000 foot view, I have to think positive early kudos should go to our analytics group.  The strong K rates from a bunch of re-tread SPs is an indication to me that our FO/analytics group is capable of coaching up some guys. Let's feast on some Marlins soon!
    • I was checking the future radar earlier and it looked like 90% of the storm would be out to sea by now (3 pm) heading for the North Atlantic. Checked the hourly for Balmer. Tonight should be fine, everpresent chance of afternoon thunderstorms tomorow.
    • Well that’s true, but you’re explaining it wrong. A bad contract cost money. A bad trade costs prospects. A draft pick that doesn’t work only means you wasted the draft pick.The difference is that with the first two you are subtracting concrete assets that you already have, and with a bad draft pick, you are only losing something that you hoped to get. The difference is obvious. And yes, pitching prospects have a high attrition rate. That’s why you acquire lots of them, which is what Mike is doing right now. It is also why you should Draft a lot of them, and I’m not the only person who is disappointed that he is not.
    • That's a good small sample size.  
    • o   (AUGUST 4th)   Since the Oriole bullpen pitchers allowed 9 runs on opening night in Boston, the ERA for the bullpen is 2.78 over the past 7 games.   SOURCE: )) Steve Melewski o
