Mullins and DJ Stewart

Recommended Posts

Ok I along with most people here didn't think Cedric Mullins or DJ Stewart were long-term answers for the Orioles but I am not sure now.  I thought Mullins was at best a 4th outfielder but at least against right-handed pitching he looks like he may be able to hit in the majors.  Maybe he should re-think being a switch hitter but he has looked good for a decent stretch now.  Same with DJ Stewart.  Frobby said he was glad he was having a moment but that moment has had some length to it.  I just like the fact that he can draw a walk.  Maybe he is just like Nunez and he is very streaky but he just  looks like he has figured a few things out.

I like the walks.

I also like the dongs.

They both look like big-leaguers to me, just a few short weeks after they both looked like AAAA players.

I think they're both worth a spot, but I can't decide if either of them deserve every-day status. Of the two, it's starting to look like DJ has a combination of power and batting eye that you just can't ignore. Keep throwing him out there and see what happens. Mullins seems like a guy you'd love to have on your bench as long as he stays cheap.

Mullins can't hit lefties as a right handed batter, the disparity in the stats between LHP as RHB and RHP as LHB are pretty significant.  

I'd be curious to know if he can hit lefties as a lefthanded batter.  If so, he might be able to carve out time as an every day player.  I still think he's a 4th outfielder, though.  But not a bad 4th outfielder to have.

DJ Stewart might be coming around, though.  I like the patience at the plate, too.

Mullins just made another great catch to end the game.    He’s been covering a tremendous amount of ground in CF.

I can't remember anyone on the O's having a stretch like this since Davis 2013. 

Probably Davis in 2015.   9 homers in 12 games, 1.526 OPS.

I'm getting a Luke Scott vibe from DJ Stewart. Good plate discipline and extremely streaky.

I like Mullins' game a lot. I think he'll have a career as a second-division starting outfielder like David Lough or Craig Gentry

The Luke Scott comp is interesting.   I’ve never thought of Stewart as having Scott’s raw power, but maybe he’s just coming into his own in that regard.   He had a very good ISO at Norfolk last year, too.    

I think Mullins is a better hitter than Lough.     Similar defender, though Lough had a better arm.   Gentry was a better OBP guy than Mullins, but I think Mullins has a bit more power.

Its funny how people want instant satisfaction with MLB call ups and are unwilling to focus on very solid minor league numbers.  

Not every team is 25 stars, and you have to develop the role players as well.

It's funny how some people think I want instant satisfaction from Mullins and Stewart when both have been getting major league at-bats since 2018.

To be fair, it's not like they've ever gotten consistent AB's in a season before this. Basically cups of coffee here and there.

    • Different situation ..... Mountcastle hit .312/.344/.527 in 544 at bats in 2019 at AAA. He was clearly ready and I'm not sure how you think the Bowie time impacted that. He started at the Bowie camp only because there was no AAA. He started at the Bowie camp to delay the clock.
    • Agreed.   But I would not say it’s impossible that Hess could become a credible major league pitcher.    Not too likely, but stranger things have happened.   
    • I think because of the way that 2020 went, level/placement will be more of a combination of scouting and performance than just performance. For Rutschman, that means that while you can justify starting him at lower levels, you also likely have enough to go on to start him in Baltimore on opening day if you really wanted. That argues for a AA assignment, though A+ wouldn't shock me I guess. On Diaz, I personally believe that he has already shown he's ready for AAA. So, for me, that means I'd assign him to AAA. From there, he has issues that he needs to work on, most notably his availability and production over time. He has flashed nicely at times, but then he inevitably has missed time for various reasons and tends to start slow upon return. That seems to have suppressed his stats. Also, I honestly think there's a red flag in there somewhere with Diaz. I think the O's like the talent more than the make up. If he's traded, I wouldn't be shocked at all. I also acknowledge that I'm reading between the lines here and have no strong evidence, for what it's worth.
    • Actually, you are right.   Not only was Hector Velazquez on the original 60 man roster so was Rob  Zastryzny.  I will add both of them to the OP. Good catch.
    • Hess and Arrieta should never be mentioned in the same sentence unless it to say they were both once drafted, developed and pitched for the Orioles.
    • You are right..it’s not the answer I’m looking for because it’s not an answer to the question you were asked. If I ask you, what is your favorite color and you tell me a banana, that is an answer and it’s not one I’m looking for..that doesn’t mean in insulting you, it just means that trying to discuss this with you when you clearly don’t want to answer the questions and you want your agenda is a waste of time.
