Other pitchers: Mattson, Sceroler, Wells

Recommended Posts

I was looking at stats. I have no idea why Goudeau is here. He doesn’t seem to offer anything. But I noticed that Tyler Wells seems to have had more success than Sceroler. In 32.2 AA innings, he had a 1.13 WHIP.  Sceroler has a slightly lower 1.11 WHIP in 117 innings, but those were at single A. He’s a year younger, but I wonder why Sceroler allegedly has more potential?

Meanwhile, Matson had more success than either pitching at AA and AAA in 2019. In 9.1 AAA innings, he had 19 Ks( 5 BB).

Seems to me that Mattson and Wells should have real shots to make the team.

What am I missing?

A) Those are some very small sample sizes.

B) Mattson walked 5 guys in just over 9 IP in his SSS at AAA.

C) Elias brought in several veteran SPs on low-risk deals specifically to give our near-ready pitching prospects a bit more development time before chucking them into the deep end of the pool, which has been a pretty consistent problem during my 30ish years as an Orioles fan.

Yeah but Mattson also  had 19ks in 9 innings, and his AA stats were really good. I can’t imagine we won’t see him this season. And Wells seems to have more upside that Sceroler.

Isn't Goudeau that guy we claimed from the Pirates who looked like he might have figured something out in recent years despite being 28? I'm not saying he's going to hold down a spot in our rotation, but I don't mind seeing what he can do. Probably has more potential than some of the guys in camp

19 Ks in ~9 IP is really good, but 5 BBs in ~9 IP is really bad (reminds me of Daniel Cabrera lol), especially since it all came in the minors. It's such a SSS that it's hard to draw much of a conclusion from it other than he will definitely start in the minors though.

I really doubt we try to keep both Rule 5 guys though (unless they both look absolutely GREAT in ST), so I guess whichever looks more ready has a good shot to stake a claim to a bullpen spot to open the season. Wouldn't completely shock me if both look overmatched in ST and get sent back either.

Tyler Wells, RHP, Baltimore Orioles: 1 IP, 1 BB, 1 K

It was nice to get a look at the giant 6-foot-8 Wells, one of Baltimore’s two Rule 5 picks who threw on Monday, given that he hasn’t been seen at all in the last two years while rehabbing from Tommy John. He came out sitting 93-95 with really tough angle because of his height. Baltimore has taken a go-wide approach to their rebuild, especially when it comes to acquiring pitching, and as a result they have several low-profile arms in their mid-20s fighting for big league reps. Wells was Baltimore’s hardest-throwing arm Monday.

Didnt we hear that Wells, despite his size, was more of a soft tosser?

The only prior report I’ve seen on his velocity had him at 90-93.

Maybe when they did the Tommy John they used a ligament from Bob Feller's cadaver?

I didn't see much special about Sceroler or Wells in their outing but it was just 1 inning. I think they are extreme longshots regardless of how they pitch with the amount of veterans in the rotation and lack of openings in the bullpen.

Mattson we'll definitely see in the bullpen at some point this year, not sure if he cracks the team out ST though.

I'm curious about Josh Rogers, Britton trade guy coming off TJ. Everyone sort of forgets about him.

    • Has anyone been to a Nats game recently? I am planning on going to the O's game Saturday and curious if they are still enforcing the masks.  Supposed to be a high of 90 on Saturday...
    • I'm just going to lock this thread as it's lowering the IQ of the whole board.
    • Ok, I thought you were just joking but at this point, I'm going to assume you don't have a firm grasp on what an actual major league prospect looks like and how organizations work. 
    • There will be rare exceptions (what they mean to the city, organization, generational type guy) but for the most part, I think getting rid of basically any player before they hit 30 is the way to go.     Sometimes, that means trading them at 27, sometimes it means 29.  Situations and who the player is dictate all of those things but my basic rule of thumb would be to get rid of them by the time they hit 30.
    • I'm under the assumption that this is just a giant joke. Ripken is not even a good AA player. He would have never had been signed if not for his name and would have been released five times already.  He's not even a priority play at Norfolk. He's just an extra guy to give a guy a day off or cover down for an injury. His slash line over his minor league career is .242/.281/.332/.613 in 1480 PAs. He's been given more than 295 PAs in a season twice. Once in Washington where he slashed .201/.241/.254/.495 in 399 PAs as a 22-year old between NYPenn and Sally League (A-) and then with Delmarva (A-) at as a 24-year old slashing .244/.281/.327/.608 in 420 PAs. Unless you just want to see a side show where a 3rd Ripken plays in the major league with the Orioles, there is not right to even be having a conversation about him being promoted to the Orioles. It would be a travesty to every hard working long time minor leaguer who actually have had a good minor league career if that were to happen.  
    • There is likely a statistical answer to this and that answer is likely to have something to do with the profile of the player (e.g., velocity, age, LD% or whatever) and the parameters of what you consider successful. Alex Wells is a great example. Very successful at AA but not the profile of ML success. Not impossible, but not the profile without velocity. It happens with hitters too. I forget his name, but we had a guy who won the triple crown (I think) in Bowie about 10 years ago. He was old, which is part of his profile, and likely had other profile things because he wasn't really a prospect even at that time.  Short answer is that success isn't a bad thing, but it's not a guarantee. Alternatively, it's probably hard to play at any level without success and then go to the majors and have success unless you're talking about very small sample sizes.
