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.

    • That's.... that's exactly what I'm saying. How are you not hearing yourself? He lost the job because he couldn't hit - like AT ALL - and the mounting pressure from all that not hitting was getting to be a strain on him and the organization. So they sent him down to work on that. Meanwhile, Elias doesn't want to - like you said yourself - go to McKenna or Hays. So they just throw whoever out there. If they weren't worried about Mullins' development they would have just kept him, but you can't keep a guy in the bigs with a broken swing. Wilkerson isn't any better defensively out there, that's obvious to see. But he could hit at least a LITTLE. And let's not forget Santander and Stewart got CF looks as well. 
    • I don't love LeBlanc, but at least it will probably prevent a Cashner reunion. 
    • Notice they haven't punished the Red Sox yet? I'm betting MLB and the Red Sox got together and canned Cora so they could try and do the slow fade on the Red Sox getting caught cheating again.
    • Certainly not by me, but I think it will probably be old news to the casual fans in a few years. The only think they could have done to make it stick was have them vacate the title, as impractical as that may have been. 
    • Fans were not super keen on Christian Walker, but he's a starter in Arizona now. I think Cedric Mullins has shown enough potential (a year removed from .289/.346/.472 in AAA and 21 SB at 23yo) to get the benefit of the doubt that he had a down year instead of being branded as hopeless. 
    • I think it was worse because he lost it to Wilkerson.  They decided that a utility infielder was a better choice for CF than Mullins.  They decision to not promote McKenna or Hays had more to do with their development than it did what was happening at the ML level. I'm not convinced they sent Mullins down to facilitate his development.  I think they looked at him, looked at Wilkerson, and wanted Wilkerson in CF.  I think they have written Mullins off as a prospect.
    • If he can throw and he isn't a waiver guy, maybe a team like Pittsburgh could use him. If he can't and is, maybe we can give his slot to Mason Williams. Slow day here.
