What 2020 has taught the Orioles is to be adaptable.
Suspended Game Just Another in a Season of Challenges for 2020 Orioles
(By Rich Dubroff)
Not necessarily. He could just have easily been worn down by the end of the year given the rigors of a full college season, multiple levels of the minors, the award circuit, media associated with being 1-1 (and the travel), etc. Or numbers are random flukish chance in SSS.
He got hot in Aberdeen and then got moved to Delmarva where he got 46 PAs. Would I have liked to have seen him hit a little better against that competition, sure, but he also was at the end of a long season that started for him in January/February.
Like I said, I'll worry about Rutschman if I see him struggling over a full minor league season. He's got all the skill set to be an impct player at the major league level. 46 PAs in Delmarva is not going to have me concerned.
Yes I did have a typo with Hardy but he was twice the player back then that Iglesias is now.... Hays matching Jones’ production would be welcome.
If all this pans out then Elias built a championship roster off waiver claims.
