The only thing that really interests me is the young pitchers. Would like to here how they're looking, any added (or lost) velo/movement/new pitches/etc. The young pitchers are the most interesting (and important IMO) part of the system right now.
I’m going to go slightly (way?) off the board here: Besides the obvious/usual guys, I’ll have a keen eye on Herrera these next few weeks. He’s a one-time T50 prospect, still somewhat young and had a decent season with some pop in AAA last year. Could be a very dark horse to grab the 2B job.
Canseco had every reason to estimate on the high side, as he was trying to excuse his own behavior with the classic “everyone else was doing it” excuse. Well, it turns out a lot of players were doing it, and he was far from the only one. But I do think he was an early adapter and that there were plenty of guys who weren’t using steroids.
Honestly, I think the best case scenario is a .180/.280/.400 type season and while that is a massive improvement over the last two years, it's still not where you need him to be to be useful. The problem is, however, it may just be enough to allow him to continue to hold on to his 26-man roster spot. I think the best case scenario for the team is similar results to what he got in 2018-2019 with the Orioles finally giving up and cutting bait once Mountcastle is ready.
