Tracking Ex Oriole Thread

Orioles play the Tigers this weekend and we'll get to Jonathan Schoop who is having a nice season. I haven't heard his name come up in trade talks, so I assume he isn't getting moved by tomorrow. 

Schoop is batting .284 with 17 home runs, 60 RBI's and an OPS+ of 120. 

The Tigers, after a slow start, have had a nice season.  They are at 49-55.  They don't strike me as sellers.

He has actually been playing quite a bit of first base for them.    69 games at 1B, just 23 at 2nd.

I actually have heard his name mentioned as a trade candidate.   He's on a 1 year contract and having a good year.

So we might see him tonight but he could be gone tomorrow.

I miss old Schoopy.   Loved the happy banter between him and Manny back in the day.   Loved the way he planted at 2B when receiving a throw and how his size intimidated baserunners.  He’s been very consistent over the last three years, and a bit better offensively than he was for us, with the exception of his excellent 2017 season.

He was an easy guy to like.

Bundy couldn’t even get out of the 1st without giving up three. One hit, two walks and one HBP.  Then, he came back with a quick one, two, three inning in the 2nd. 
 

Weird

It's like he never left.

Hyun-soo Kim just hit a dramatic, walk-off double for South Korea against the DR in Tokyo. Add Olympic legend to his resume. 

Yay for Kim Hyun-Soo!

I was looking at Adam Jones’ slash line in Japan this year and did a double-take: .243/.381/.330.    He’s walked 20 times in 130 PA!   Power seems to have disappeared though.    It appears he’s been relegated to part time DH/PH, as he hasn’t played in the field and has only played in about 2/3 of the team’s games, averaging about 2.5 plate appearances per game played.   I’d have to think he’ll hang ‘em up when his 2-year contract expires at the end of the season.

Another big day for Kim, including a two-RBI HR against Israel. That game that also featured former Oriole Danny Valencia. Edwin Jackson (who pitched for the O's in three games in 2017) also pitched for team USA in their extra inning loss to Japan.

Manny Machado has been very hot lately.   He’s leading the National League in RBI with 75, while currently posting an .884 OPS (145 OPS+).  He has a 1.183 OPS over his last 25 games.

Yolmer Sanchez, who we cut in spring training, has a .609 OPS at AAA Gwinnett.

Drew Jackson, who we selected in the 2019 Rule 5 draft but returned, has an .864 OPS for AAA Syracuse.

Pardons if anyone's mentioned Rich Rodriquez, but he's one that got away.  He had 2 excellent years at Norfolk and a cup of coffee at Baltimore in 2017 before he was released.  Does anyone remember why the O's let him go?  He's done real well for Pittsburg and became their closer.  Right before the trade deadline, he was traded to Atlanta for very talented 23 year old starter Bryse Wilson.  Rodriquez is now a key guy in Atlanta's chase for an NL East championship - just behind the Mets and Phillies.  Bryse Wilson is exactly the type of young pitcher the O's should be looking for.

    • It doesn’t look dirty to me. The camera angle might be a little deceiving, but it appears he may have made some kind of move toward 2B after running through 1B and needed to get back on 1B. The runner has every right to be on base. The fielder/pitcher does not get to dominate the base like that. You could make a case that he pushed him for both to avoid a collision with knees or getting spiked. Those things cause legitimate injury.  He has never been considered a dirty player that I have ever heard. To me, it’s a good kind of competitive toughness that is taught from 9 years old. If a player stands in the middle of first base without providing a path for the runner, the runner can run through them. It is what it is. 
    • This is almost dead on what I was thinking.  Of course, I now think you're a genius!  .820 and 3.8 rWAR/162 is what I was thinking.
    • Ok, I'll bite....What makes a young SS firmly in his prime, coming off a 7 WAR season more of a risk than a 30 year old corner OF? Even if you could give a satisfactory answer to that, you also aren't looking at the current situation with this roster. The Orioles actually have the 5th highest OF/DH wRC+ in all of baseball. They also have the third most OF/DH HR in all of baseball. They have another potential 20-30 HR OF knocking on the door as well as two other blue chip OF prospects who could move fast. They need to be prioritizing above average defensive infielders with pop. Bryant isn't that guy. I'd rather give Javy Baez the money you are giving Bryant and I don't think I'd even hesitate with that decision. He's actually been better than Bryant this year and he's younger and still a SS who could easily move to 2B/3B eventually. 
    • Maybe not a finished product, but I believe that was the expectation. DJ was thought of as a projected power hitter when drafted by DD. Big strong guy who would grow into his power after some mechanical adjustments with good plate discipline. Power, to me, is more than home runs. Extra base hits add into that equation, but maybe that is just me these days. They projected him to become that guy. He sure wasn’t drafted in round 1 for his speed, arm strength and defense. 
    • it can show you, guys with great running ability, note, I didnt say speed. Speed helps, but doesnt do squat for you, if you have no base running IQ the guys that can score from first/second/third, by knowing who is in the outfield and getting good jump on the crack of the bat.
    • Because they are there every day with him. I do not mean to say there is a definitive diagnosis or anything like that. I do not mean to speculate, only an example of what may be an issue. They know whether his attitude is good or not. They know what his effort is. They know if he is putting in his work or not, or whether he has other issues. If they do not know what is going on there, at least in a general way, then they are not good at their jobs. The front office needs to make decisions based on what is going on.
