So 2019 AAA, do a little math, assume they deflate the MLB ball next year, that's about a .625 OPS in Baltimore, right?

His power looks pretty legit.    .176 ISO in the minors, .194 in the majors.     He also walks with reasonable frequency.    He hasn’t hit for average in his major league stints and has about a 30% K rate in the majors but only 20% in the minors.     Back pre-2015, he was ranked no. 46 prospect by BA.    Overall, he strikes me as a good guy to stash in AAA in case we have some injuries.

With Villar moved, the team needs some more middle infield depth. Who knows, maybe he shows something in Spring Training. He was a top prospect back in the day. Maybe we get an infield of Valaika, Alberto, and Herrera on Opening Day. That's the kind of infield that strikes fear the in the hearts of...well, nobody.

The dreaded "broken injury" strikes again. Tough to get over. 

Ended my career. Never could overcome the broken injury.

It sounds like he’s auditioning for Wilkerson’s spot. I like Stevie, and as things stand, he’s one of our best players, Ha ha ha cry cry cry, but he’s had a whole year of major league glory, and if they want to replace him I won’t complain too much.

Man, this name is a blast from the past. Remember thinking this guy was going be very promising for the Mets. Dominating AA as a 20 year old with good metrics. Only to be a Quad A player for the next 5 years. .203/.293/.394 triple slash in 266 PAs.

Shallow low rez valuation made me feel he was one those guys who masked the serious flaws as a hitter with a selective approach against MILB pitching.

Nothing wrong with taking a gamble on mutli-position fielder with some pop.

You can never hate a milb signing.  Seems like he's more of a corner guy than a MIF type, but I could be wrong.  If I'm a milb FA, I'm looking at the O's as a team that can offer me a significant role.  Like a real chance.

I've never seen you this optimistic, are you feeling okay?

Since this guy has positional flexibility, I’ll pose my question here.  Does the new 26 man roster have conditions on it?  In other words, is a team limited in the number of pitchers it can carry?  I believe I read something about that, but wasn’t sure if that was the final rule.

So probably our best hitting potential shortstop.

He's not a shortstop in any real sense.  He last played there in 2014.  But as a 2B/3B he's kind of the new Ryan Flaherty.

You can't carry any more than 13 pitchers.  Which is kind of like a law saying that you can't have any more than 11 kids: philosophically annoying, but realistically it only impacts crazy people.  If the Orioles were planning on carrying 14 pitchers we'd have bigger problems.
