Projected Rosters-- Full Season squads

Recommended Posts

It's early, but what are your thoughts about about the four full season squads and who will be on them? Trying to get some thoughts about what people think, and things that have been objectively confirmed by the media.

I’d like to get some info from Minor League Spring Training and analyze it a while before I break out the squads but am open to discussing individual guys.  Maybe we can talk about each and every one before March and build rosters one by one!

I hope Hernaiz and Henderson break camp with Delmarva, but based on Elias's comments, that doesn't sound likely.

It will probably be Welk at 3B, Ortiz at SS, Carmona at 2B there. Encarnacion 3B in Frederick

Also think McKenna will be in Norfolk to be in OF rotation, compete w/ Mullins to be the 4th OF in Baltimore at some point this season.

Wow!  That’s very thorough-great to look at.  Some of these minor league staffs are going to be absolutely devastating.  I see some very difficult series ahead for hitters.

At first glance, I didn’t see JC Encarnacion on a squad.  And coincidentally your Ironbirds are without a 3B.  I could see him here after maybe extended spring?

This year of ABs and instruction is pretty big for him as I see it.  Get back into the prospect scene for him and for us let’s see what he can do.  Is there anything to build on?  I think yes.  He’s still so young and my videos have him pretty lean.

@RZNJ Givens and Bleier absent. What are you thinking about those two?

I honestly forgot about Bleier but just guessing that Givens get traded before the season starts.

All of what you say is possible.  I was wondering where I should put Curran and Encarnacion.   Neither has shown much progress or earned a promotion to Frederick. I would suggest that Welk has a better chance to compete in that league than Encarnacion. I think Encarnacion and Curran are potentially release candidates this spring with Curran the more likely possibility.   One dimensional hitters who haven't really shown much progress in that area.

Organizational players don’t necessarily need to “earn” promotions. They just are there to fill a position.

Frederick is a pretty high level for guys in there first full pro season drafted where Welk was.

Yep. Big jump for Welk. If they are conservative with Henderson and Hernaiz then Welk goes to Delmarva. Otherwise, I was thinking of the scenario where Hernaiz and Henderson go to Delmarva.  That would kind of push Welk to Frederick. 

Also, I don't view Curran or Encarnacion as organizational players. More like failed prospects.  They may get more chances but I think their time is running out, especially Curran.

Right, both same age and same problem holding them back.  I never thought of JCE as a potential cut but he has hundreds of ABs not controlled or maximized.  It’s hard to think of someone so young as having peaked already but there are lots of factors that support both sides of that debate. And no numbers that say he’s a prospect with shine, maybe a handful of extra base hits at Rome.  It looks like someone will need to seize that 3B spot at one of the affiliates and straighten out the rest.  JCE at 22, Welk at 21, Gunnar at 18 seems almost like a good problem to have until you realize there’s a good chance that one will be at a level they may not be ready for starting soon.  Also, Josue Herrera has over 300 innings at 3rd, although he brings a .892 fielding percentage and 12 errors.  He’s only 22 and showed me some good bat control skills along with an .880 OPS batting cleanup.  Maybe, maybe not. Also please don’t hesitate to throw Trevor Putzig into the mix somewhere down there.  I liked his contact skills from the first BP I saw and I bet he opens the eyes of a decision maker.  He’s also 24 and has played in college and a pair of levels already so there’s that.

    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970, the last day before the All-Star break, the Orioles split a double header with the Detroit Tigers.  The Birds dropped game one 7-3 but came back to win game two 13-3.  The team enters the break with a 54-33 record. Dave McNally (12-6) was shelled in the first game: 2.2 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 1 K, 3 HR allowed).  The Orioles were held to 6 hits with Davey Johnson going 2 for 4 with 1 run scored. BOX SCORE Game two started much like game one did.  Starter Tom Phoebus lasted 2.2 innings and allowed 3 runs on 5 hits while walking 2 and striking out 1.  Dick Hall relieved Phoebus and recorded the win with his 6.1 inning effort.  Hall allowed 1 hit and 1 walk in his appearance. Boog Powell, Elrod Hendricks and Merv Rettenmund all homered for the Orioles.  Rettenmund went 4 for 5 with 2 2B, 2 runs scored and 2 RBI.  Powell went 2 for 5 with 2 runs scored and 4 RBI.  Hendricks went 2 for 4 with 2 runs scored and 2 RBI.  Brooks Robinson contributed a 3 for 4 with 1 2B and 1 run scored effort as well. BOX SCORE
    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970 the Orioles defeated the Detroit Tigers 6-5.  Mike Cuellar improved to 11-5 on the year with a 7.0 inning effort in which he allowed 5 runs on 8 hits while walking 2 and striking out 2. Cuellar helped himself out by going 3 for 4 with a homerun (his second), 1 run scored and 2 RBI.  Homeruns by Elrod Hendricks (1 for 4, 1 R, 2 RBI) and Terry Crowley (1 for 4, 1 R, 2 RBI) accounted for the rest of the Orioles run total. Bill Freehan came up big for the Tigers: 3 for 3, 1 3B, 1 HR, 3 runs scored and 1 RBI. BOX SCORE
    • Variations in value on players almost don't matter if they're talented enough, because salaries are pro-rated.  The short season makes wacky things like us signing Puig for a $4 million (after the pro rata adjustment) deal plausible.  That wouldn't be worth it at all if we had to pay for a full season.  A player would have to be massively overvalued for him to not make sense.
    • Well the Festus and Doc back and forth mostly. "When you start to read the readin. How do you know the feller that wrote the readin wrote the readin right!?"
    • Didn't know I liked Gunsmoke until I started watching it about a year ago.
    • It would appear he's making music now!
