BP Top 10

Recommended Posts

https://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/article/54965/2019-prospects-baltimore-orioles-top-10-prospects-2/

The Orioles led off their org lists this morning.

I didn't really learn anything new on anyone thanks to all the great stuff here, but the impressions I got going through were:

-high on McKenna (edged Diaz for #5 behind the clear Top 4)

-low on Lowther (15th behind Akin/Wells, and even Cadyn Grenier who they had 10th)

The Under 25 list including major leaguers was kind of interesting for a pegging of our young MLB'ers in with the prospects - they had Santander/Nunez/Sisco adjacent behind the McKenna/Diaz B level, and ahead of everyone else.

Grenier is no. 10?    McKenna ahead of Diaz?   This list seems a bit wacky to me.    

Honestly, Grenier at 10 makes me discount the entire thing. For example, maybe Hall at 4 makes sense, but I won't give that any credence unless it comes packaged with a bunch of other smart takes.

I like McKenna better than the stats, but at 5 is pretty wild given the potential rotation guys in the system. 

Insanely wacky. Who is doing these? Names please.

I think Paternostro and Seidler are the main prospect guys remaining there. Paternostro is on the byline along with a nebulous mention of "BP prospect staff".

Haha - I had just copied this off the page.... Jeffrey Paternostro and BP Prospect Staff

Some of the writeups had individual signatures at the end of the Variance section, but McKenna's didn't.

They are chatting at 100pm if anyone wants to argue, errr, discuss the list (this is I suppose mostly what rankings are for).

The Oriole Report (Baltimore, MD): You guys are by far the highest of anyone I’ve seen on McKenna (typically 15-20 range) and Grenier (borderline top 30), am I missing something in their potential? Especially with guys like Hays and Akin left off the top 10.

Baltimore Orioles Top 10 Chat: As always, I can't speak to other list products (honestly wasn't even aware of any other national Orioles product, although I guess more places are doing rolling rankings now). Anyway, I know McKenna didn't hit as much as you'd like in Double-A, but our staff looks showed a broad base of tools, including sneaky pop and solid CF defense. I don't think you can just scout the stat line there. Grenier's glove is a carrying tool and if he hits even a little bit that's a second division regular at the six. Prefer that to Akin's reliever risk and Hays...well, I didn't know what to do with Hays and said as much in the blurb, but he's never hit above Double-A for any sustained period.

I thought Grenier wasn't even a lock to stay at "the six"?

I know Luke liked Hall’s defense better than Grenier’s.    But, to each his own.   
 

I remember Tony having a conniption a few years ago when BP put Josh Hart in their top 10.   They aren’t afraid to go out on a limb.     In that case, the limb got sawed off while they were sitting on it.

    • 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?"
