2021 Delmarva Shorebirds Roster activity

Recommended Posts

Brnovich allowed 1 hit through 5ip with 6 k’s. Threw 46 of his 58 pitches for strikes. As a 23 year old and not pitching the year he was drafted (2019) he was really hurt by the lost season. Hope he strings a few more nice starts together and gets the AA call.

I noticed Hernaiz batting 9th tonight - that was a bit of a bummer.

At this point in the year, the lineup placements tell me more what the org thinks than whatever the first handful of PA outcomes are.

He's one of the youngest on the team so it's not really a slight for him. I'm just glad to see him make the team and get into that SS/2B/DH rotation.

Hey, what about Encarncion in CF? The weather though looks sketchy tonight down there so I would expect some rain delays or a suspension at some point.

I’m not expecting him to reach “Stevie” status out there, but it’s interesting. I didn’t know he had the speed...Or glove...Or anything really, for it.

Cristopher Cespedes makes his Orioles organization debut. He's 6-3, 200 pounds and soon to be 23 years old. Was in the Indians systems, never making it past their AZL team despite slashing .326/.386/.543/.930 in 207 PAs as a 21-year old in 2019.

And he homers in his debut! It's good to see these guys putting up numbers but it should also be noted that Fredericksburg is 0-9 with a -70 run differential to start the year. Washington has a dreadful farm system.

He had a nice little game to start off his Orioles "career". 

I have to say this also about the Fredericksburg organization, they have the most annoying in-between inning "hype/motivator/MC." Her voice is like nails down a chalkboard when she tries to fake motivation and end up screeching into her microphone. It was so bad I had to let me wife hear it and she was like, Oh my God that's awful!"  

I enjoy watching the in between inning stuff sometimes during minor league games, but I immediate switch to another game of put it on mute.

I mean, it IS a Nationals organization...

Just wanted to put out a quick note about Xavier Moore. Righty reliever for Delmarva is listed at 6'2" 175lbs......but he must have gone through a serious growth spurt. He has command issues, but the game I watched he was throwing his FB around 95 mph, dipping to 92 and topping out at 97. Threw a low 80's slider and mixed in an occasional curve just to give the hitter something other to think about. Nothing to get terribly excited about at this point, but I wonder if he picked up some of that velocity in the lost year as he filled out. 

Adding an old tweet with video:

I’m surprised and disappointed that Zebron didn’t make the Shorebirds.   

Zebron debuted for Delmarva tonight, though he may wish he didn’t, as he allowed three runs in one third of an inning.   Better luck next outing.

    • We all understand your argument. The quotes I shared were examples of straw man arguments you were attributing to myself or others. 
    • Yea but if you think about it, he probably gets 1-2 rehab starts.  Even if it’s just one, that’s a start and then 4 days off.  So that’s 5 days right there.  He wasn’t going to miss just another 9 days on top of that. Figure he starts working off the mound within a week, then he goes on a rehab assignment in late June/early July, has one or 2 starts and then the AS break is here. Possible he pitches in a game before the break but they could just give him more time and wait until after. Just hope he gets in a few good starts before July 30th and then they can decide whether trading him or not is on the table.
    • Ok that’s a bit of a longer layoff then I expected. I thought Means might sit out for two weeks and not an entire month. Hope this isn’t a prelude to a more serious injury. 
    • Interesting that the Yankees appear to be getting old, while the Giants are very old and collectively putting up great stats. Im curious whats behind the Giants resurgence. 
    • The quotes that you shared from me neither refute my point nor are contradictory. you just said yourself, “the question is how much and whether Pedro hits enough to be worth it” I never specifically mentioned anyone by name and even my direct comment to you was,” Your point SEEMS TO BE THAT IF HE IS HITTING WELL ENOUGH….” Which you just confirmed in your own comment, which is whether Severino hits well enough to be worth his defense, which is exactly the attitude I inferred. The comments that I am referencing claim that Severino’s offense-and Sisco’s as well-was sufficient to compensate for the defense. I always responded the same”no it doesn’t, league-average bedamned.”   I do not think anybody is making those arguments anymore, for which God be praised, but they certainly did.
    • That doesn't sound possible.  The bat sliver hit him in the eye all the way at first base? I need to find some video of that.   Found it, now I realize what you meant to say. https://mlb-cuts-diamond.mlb.com/FORGE/2021/2021-06/19/3444ed34-a9507805-cf61094c-csvm-diamondx64-asset_1280x720_59_4000K.mp4 Hadn't ever seen that happen before.
