Jon Meoli was on 105.7 tonight with Jerry Coleman. Was asked about prospects other than Adley who he looked forward to seeing. Said he heard Hall got his command figured out between Atl camp and Fall ball. Said with him being a lefty, velocity and pitch mix could be a top 20 prospect. 

Amazing how his command got better when he stopped facing high level hitting and then faced low-level hitters, liked the kind he dominated in Delmarva. 

We can hope it comes around but his Bowie season this year will tell us a whole lot more than some reports from instructs.

Sure but I don’t think Meoli is the type to just say something. 
 

Just like with Adley and all the rest these kids need to play.

That was not a hit on Meoli's reporting, just stating facts. I have some contacts too.. ;)

I’m sure you do. I wanted to drop the interview but I was never able to find it. He was real excited to see him.

So I was all ready to wave the flag tomorrow of Trevor Rogers being a high school pitcher from the 2017 draft just like D.L. Hall, and the Marlins not exactly maximizing MLB wins yet, but nonetheless giving him a cup of coffee last fall and having maybe a promising rotation regular now.

But going to the dates of birth, Rogers was an OLD prep for the 2017 draft.   11.13.1997 DOB would have made him >19.5 as a high school by June 2017.  Hall is almost a full year younger, and I guess DOB beats HS diploma in rock/paper/scissors.

Has the Opening Night honors at 600.

I know in low minors some have said the book was kind of "just don't swing" because the stuff was that hot.   It'll be great to finally see what progress he's made, and if AA batters aren't so scared of his pitches.

I guess following his outings may be about the same as Any Given Tanner Scott night, though he will have Adley framing.

Skimming Altoona's roster, Oneil Cruz (the 6'7" shortstop) and Cal Mitchell are the prospecty names I sort of recognize.

Watch the receiving.

Good point.  He looks good back there.   

As to Hall, he reminds me of Josh Hader a little.   Maybe it’s the hair.

    • Oh, I don’t agree with it, but after years of having arguments about “sunk costs” I’m left without any other impression.  In my mind, including Davis when the team was horrible, and now Severino or Franco, these guys are taking the roster spot of someone more deserving. Not always, but there’s a pretty good case for someone to take any of those spots.
    • Per MLB rules online, the ball is live if it is “unintentional interference.”
    • He was emptying the tank there.   The first inning or two, he was slower.   The first touch of 94-95 I noticed wasn't until a few innings along, on a 2 out 2 strike pitch.   But he really seemed to pick up steam in the middle. Hartford seemed kind of terrible, but at least he held serve, if not a little more.   On the Either/Or, I'd easily pick Rodriguez still.
    • It was Roth followed by Roth tonight in Delmarva.   I don’t recall that happening before with them.  
    • For the second time in a couple of weeks, an Orioles ball boy touched a fair ball that bounced in his direction tonight and the ball was ruled dead when he touched it. Unlike the other incident, this ball literally came right at the ball boy’s chair. He barely had to move his glove to a spot maybe 18 inches under his lap.  He was mightily embarrassed when he realized his mistake.   The other incident was more egregious, though neither was good and the the ball boy/girl supervisor really needs to call a meeting and let all these kids know it’s an unacceptable mistake.  (I saw another ball boy/girl do this in a recent O’s road game, I believe). That said, here’s my question.  Assume the kid jumps from his chair and the ball either rattles around under the chair or ricochets off one of the legs and back out.   In either instance, Is that a live ball? I think the kid is supposed to try to move the chair to avoid those scenarios, but I’m still curious what the ruling would  be.   By the way, a few innings later the same ball boy did a nice job of snagging a foul ball that had bounced off the side wall and was about to go into the field of play.   The fans sitting over there cheered him, something I doubt they would have done normally but they did it to, quite literally, “cheer him up” after his prior mistake.  Classy move.  
    • I don’t mind it much when the TV guys do it, since you can see the action.  It bothers me more on radio, where you’re dependent on the announcers to know what’s going on.   A skilled announcer can do an interview between the action but describe the game decently at the same time, and minimize the spillover.
