Sarasota Notebook 3/3-Updated Throughout Day

.4 seconds is quite a bit to beat the second place guy in a sprint. Wonder if the coach was a hare off in starting the watch?OIP.ir7NTGB9y7I33a6pyHi0CgHaEn?w=273&h=1

I have a request, a lot of these guys I’m not familiar with, and I am presuming that they are just organizational filler or very young guys who haven’t really started to make a name for themselves. Would it be too awkward to ask you to identify guys? The first time you identify the guy you could say in parentheses AA or A or filler or something like that?

Actually, if you could just share the link to where we could look these guys up, that would probably be a timesaver for you. It’s surprising how many these guys I have never heard of.

Pretty funny and I agree.  It’s reasonable to assume that.  Mase on base can absolutely fly.  The coaches/players were all audibly impressed.  He got to second from first so fast it’s like a blink.  Fans should flock to his games to watch his quickly developing skills.  Also, today is his birthday so maybe he’s revved up.

Philip I’d be glad to.  Thanks for letting me know and one of the reasons I decided to do this was to let fans know a little bit more about these players.  I’m happy that you want more.  
It is my responsibility to fill you in as much as I can and let you judge for yourself, I’m glad for the feedback.  
To be honest, I’m familiarizing myself with this group too and guys keep checking in so the list only grows.  I’ll do my best to provide bios/details as I can for you.  Other intelligent posters can fill in the gaps too.  
 

In a year or two, if I do my job well, you’ll know a little more about these guys than you do today.

Really like the updates, Eric. Thanks!

You’re welcome.  It’s a wonderful baseball environment and I’m happy to share what I see for you.  It would be great if every fan could take in what’s going on here so that’s my mindset and I try to share everything I can.

Click this link and scroll down to “organizational batting” or “organizational pitching.”    It gives alphabetical listings of every player in the organization as of the end of 2019, including the levels they played at and their combined stats.

It won’t include players who weren’t with the organization in 2019.

Thank you, I have bookmarked it. I wonder why these guys hang around? We’re not getting paid anything, literally a guy Working at Walmart makes more money.

these guys truly have the love of the game in their blood, and some would pay to play, if they could afford to.

ScOtt, you've been on our site since I believe the late 90s. You can not tell me that you just started using BB ref. I refuse to believe that from a longtime Hangouter. :D

Question for @Eric-OH about Rom - any idea where his fastball was topping out, and did you see him use his rumored new pitch in (simulated) game action?   Rom happens to be a guy I glommed onto during his GCL season in 2018 (I think I ranked him 15th in my personal rankings that winter), so I’m hoping he continues to progress and prove me right!

I have reason to look for the same stuff.  The guys with the guns were gone by the time he pitched so no on the speed.  I’d estimate that maybe two pitches I saw had clear split like action.  I sit 15-18 feet behind the fence (!) and centered. One was in a hittable spot low but got a swinging strike.  The other one buried at the hitter’s toes and also got a swinging strike. What I see is he’s tough on both sides but lefties just might not see enough to judge the path/spin.  I’ll find out some way to get digits on him because you’re not the only one who is curious.  
 

I’m not putting him at number one with a bullet, but your speculation might be on track and he’s making progress.  Other guys are more on and warmed today, but he is not and his results are noticeable.  
Every starter got one ‘inning’ but when he came off he wanted some more-hungry!

So even though the umps had just left they gave him a few more batters to get through.  He operates with a calm and confident demeanor.  Not rattled when he misses location.  Seems like a very nice guy but out there to perform.  I’ve seen nothing but positives.

Not every guy looked the part in the O’s orange uniform. He seemed to fit in pretty well.

    • So now the goalpost is if makes an impact on his major league career the next season?  That's quite a jump.  I will say that one year of age when a player is making his MLB debut can hugely impact his future earnings. No one in this thread is suggesting that he shouldn't finish his degree at some point.  Also intelligence and education aren't the same thing.    Of course odds are very good that the speculation of him not being able to attend the camp and instead using his time to work on his degree is correct.
    • Yes, a player COULD benefit from the instruction league, even though its a fact that no one has ever benefited enough to be a starter on the major league level the following year, AND he COULD also be in an auto accident and not be able to play any sports. How much is the Instruction League going to help him then.  The topic of this thread is about the player, but the real discussion is about each Poster's value system . . . intelligence or athletics!
    • You must have seen a different guy than I saw.  He committed 4 errors in 9 games.  3 of those at SS.  From his minor league history I think he might have a chance at 2B but not SS.
    • I would say that's crazy, but after this year, I'd say nothing is out of the question.  The only thing they have going for them is they have a successful major league season under their belt with no deaths and limited interruptions (not surprisingly). Even if they don't want to have a season at all the stadiums and all the travel, they should be able to have a Florida and Arizona camp leagues like they should of had this year.
    • I’d say maybe yes, maybe no. He spends 4-5 weeks playing with and against other professionals, gets some coaching, gets some eyes on him and they give him a program for what to do over the winter based on that experience and maybe he gets some of his own ideas of what he needs to work on based on that experience.   That gives him a leg up on next year compared to not doing it.   If they thought Fall Instructs didn’t benefit players, they wouldn’t do them, right?
    • Honestly, I don't think you can say that. You are probably right but maybe they uncover a swing adjustment that he can take into the offseason and perfect?  It's conceivably possible that his career could be impacted. As for what is more important?  This is hardly the only chance he has to work on his degree and it's pretty unlikely that having a degree in recreation and sport management will make a difference in the next year or so.  I'd say working on his degree right now isn't that important compared with professional baseball.  
    • Interesting Reading this thread: It's a fact that no one on this board has perused his contract . . . potential clause for getting his degree or not! It's a fact that no one has knowledge of anything discussed between the Orioles and him beyond the contract. It's a fact that no one here is aware of his medical condition.  It's a fact that his degree earned will be his for a lifetime. Now, what's more important, him getting his degree or playing for a few weeks? Is playing for the Orioles during this short 2020 period going to have ANY impact on his career? NO
