Grayson Rodriguez 2021

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure how I like how he drags his arm across his body at the end of his follow through.  That looks like it puts a lot of strain on the side of the shoulder.

But whatever, I'm not going to nitpick the dude's mechanics.  If we didn't learn anything from Arrieta, we didn't learn anything.  Let that guy do what makes him successful.

Another week or two and we'll get to see if Grayson will follow the Adley Aberdeen publicity path, or if his getting to know Bowie last summer plus these camp game performances earn himself the double bump to Bowie.

His starting level and how Gunnar/Westburg get placed are interesting calls - I think Adley Bowie has already been spoken by team officials.

Something's gotta give.  Too many guys are theoretically lined up for High-A Aberdeen. There will need to be some bumps to Bowie to clear the logjam. Adam Hall and Grayson Rodriguez are prime candidates for the skip IMO.

Nice, solid outing for Grayson.  I’m sure they’ll stretch him more as the season progresses, but it sounds like the O’s will be very cautious with pitchers’ innings.

101. Hall touching 99 from the left side isn't too shabby either. 

 

I saw that as well. Pretty crazy of Rodriguez is touching 101 in a start. He's going to another level of [prospect status if he starts pitching in the upper 90s.

He has completed the Tuesday/Sunday sequence, and has a rematch with Jackson Rutledge, a National they have a few million in too for early MASN minors bragging rights.  1-1 game after 2 innings.

Elias on telecast in 3rd inning smoothly hyped DL Hall starting Baysox home opener Tuesday as his Sunday turn in Altoona got washed out.

Not the best day.    Only allowed one run in 3.1 IP thanks to a good relief job, and he did strike out 7.  But, allowed 7 baserunners — 4 hits, 2 walks and one HBP.

67 pitches in 3.1 IP.  He was not sharp.

    • 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.
