DL Hall 2021

So much for the discussion of whether he should be in AAA.    With Smith’s promotion and Hall’s injury, Bowie’s rotation suddenly seems a lot weaker.   Of course, they did win a 1-0 shutout yesterday behind Ofelky Peralta and others.   

Hopefully this is just a bump in the road for Hall.   
 

The discussion is has he earned the AAA promo and that is a yes.

Obviously the injury will set him back and they will put him in Bowie immediately after he’s healthy.  He still should be in Norfolk by August though and end the year pitching there.

I’d say it depends on how he bounces back from the injury.   But if he pitches well, I agree.

The kid finally went 6 innings the other day and now he's out with soreness, sounds like they may have to start transitioning him to relief. Not time to give up on starting yet but seems to be headed that way.

Incredibly premature take.

The main reason he hasn't gone six is the very stringent pitch counts they have the guys pitching to. 

He's isn't hitting 100 pitches in the four inning.

He needs to be given a multitude of chances to stay in the starting rotation.

There is zero evidence that they wan to move him to the pen.

 

I don't get this take at all.

All the more reason to draft Kumar Rocker!  😄

The fact that Hall went 6 innings is a good sign he can start I think. Tendinitis hits relief pitchers too you know. Not like this would never happen if he was a reliever.

Caught end of Matt Blood interview on 105.7 the Fan this afternoon. Said Hall is in Florida and will pitch again this year. 
 

Not much detail but I thought I would mention.

It was reported he’d start throwing in about two weeks.  So I’d guess it’s mid-August before he pitches in a game.

Ten MLB pitching prospects primed to pop into Jim Bowden’s top 50 in 2022: Quinn Priester, Bobby Miller and more – The Athletic

 

4. D.L. Hall, LHP, Baltimore Orioles

"Hall was stellar in his introduction to Double A this season with a 3.13 ERA and 56 strikeouts in 31 1/3 innings over seven starts, but hasn’t pitched in a game since mid-June because of a left elbow injury. His fastball is mostly 97-99 mph with natural life. His changeup is his best secondary pitch, with deception and fade. His curveball is his top breaking ball and shows wipeout-pitch potential in flashes. Hall’s control and command need work (4.55 walks per nine innings); if he resolves those problems, he can reach his top-of-the-rotation ceiling."

I really liked his article.  I take the Athletic also for Keith Law and other baseball articles.  This is his breakdown on Hall.

Fastball 65

Curve 55

Slider 50

Changeup 60

Control 40

Command 40

Could have drafted Texas A&M  lefthander  Asa Lacy last year instead of another corner outifielder. College lefthander with lots of Stuff but command issues.   Lacy was #6 on Bowden's list.

Lacy is MLB's #67 overall prospect.

Lacy has 41 walks in 52 IP in A+ right now too.

You're absolutely right.  Way worse control than in college.  Only walked a little over 4 per 9 innings at T A&M.  Maybe Miami was smart to pass on him and take Max Meyer.  But I don't prefer short  righthanders.

For me, I thought he would cut his walks and keep his dominate strikeout stuff when he pitched professionally full time.  A reasonable assumption..

The guy is also 6'4" and over 200 lbs.  He's a horse.  Watch his video.

    • Marte, who may considered the best CF option via FA, was just signed by the Mets.
    • On the contrary, it is completely true. The team will have ebbs and flows, based on random chance And misfortune such as is happening to Kjested right now, But if you avoid long-term contracts, all of which are stupid, trade your guys at peak value and restock the farm, and there’s no reason why you can’t continually be a positive team. The Cardinals do it and they never have a single digit draft choice they always draft in the high teens, and yet they still have a good team over and over.
    • Going into 2009, Tillman was BA’s no. 22 prospect, Matusz no. 25, Arrieta no. 67.   Britton wasn’t ranked yet but was no. 63 the next year.  Brad Bergesen was the reigning Eastern League pitcher of the year.   David Hernandez had led the league. In strikeouts.   So, it was a more impressive group than your post suggests.   
    • Even worse living with the knowledge that Cardinals owner Bill DeWitt Jr. could have been the Orioles owner all this time, but thanks to Peter Angelos outbidding him it never happened. 
    • Nothing happens til it happens, but can we glean anything meaningful from what the insiders say?   ”Listening to offers” means nothing. Does anyone NOT listen to offers? However, that’s probably indicates less interest than a term like… ”Dangling.” What does that mean? Is GM A calling up GM B and saying,” hey, I got this hot guy, and he can be yours! All I need is XX.” Is GM A being coy and hitting that MAAAAAAYBE he’ll listen…? Regardless, it probably indicates more desire to trade, but maybe not as much as… “Eager to deal” or “seeking the best matchup” which is where GM A is calling up everyone in the Rolodex and saying,” Have I got a deal for you! AND if you ACT NOW…no? Well, how about……etc etc” All  those terms indicate at least partially dealing from a position of “I don’t have to” “I’m in no hurry” “if you don’t, someone else will,” and so on. But pity the guys who… ”Are willing to eat most of the contract…” the fools who rush in, and then find it veeeeery expensive to rush back out.. poor San Diego would be less poor if they hadn’t flung all that cash at Mr Hosmer, but they did, and he has been smiling ever since…and they..” are willing to eat most of his contract” Anyway, where does that leave the Orioles? We’re listening. Sure we are. Everyone listens except your cat in the backyard who doesn’t want to come in yet. We are “dangling”…. That means we’re listening a bit more earnestly, but still it’s our call. Nothing will happen unless it’s very good for the Bmore boys. So let’s see what kind of horse trader Mike is, and what can he bring home in return for the shiny bauble he is dangling…
    • I think we are going to have to get some favorable results from our own young pitchers to improve significantly in 2022. Last year was a bottom 20% outcome in that regard compared to the range of possible outcomes from that group.    If things break the other way in 2022 we could see a lot more wins.   But you can’t just expect that to happen given their performance to date.   
    • I’m happy they’re open to listening to offers.   Obviously, you don’t trade him unless there’s a lot coming back.
