Robert Neustrom 2021

Recommended Posts

At this point, should he be in Baltimore? 
 

I know the at bats in AAA are limited so far but he is 24 and was drafted out of college.  If you want to give him some more MiL time, so be it but with Diaz’s year being a complete zero and DJ and Santander sucking or hurt, I figure we might as well see what we have with this guy.

The Orioles don't need to protect Neustrom this year on the 40-man roster so that could be a reason to keep him down. While there is a lot of deadweight on the current 40-man, they still have to look if it's worth putting him on there or not. He's been on a heater for the last two months and has hit the ball as well as anyone in the upper minors, but he doesn't have good numbers against lefties so they may want to give him more time in AAA to work on that as well. 

He's been a nice story this year for sure.

After doing a little more digging, it seems that Neustrom does need to be protected this year before the Rule 5 draft. I was under the impression it was four full seasons for college players, not four seasons including their first season after being drafted. With that said, I still think they will keep him in the minors through most of this season but if he stays hot, they could decide to make a move and bring him up.

I've been wondering about the Rule V guys recently, and if some of them are more likely to get a look this fall. My month old list has Hall, Bradish, Vavra, Smith, Neustrom, Knight, Dorrian, Peralta, Vespi, Hall, Stauffer as additions.  The turnover on the 40 man over the next year will be pretty impressive.

These two will definitely not be additions. After the trade deadline comes and goes I have an article to put on Rule 5 eligible players and the affect on the 40-man. It just made sense to wait until the trade deadline shakes out.

Makes sense. I'm looking forward to reading this. Disappointed Adam Hall has fallen out of favor so much this year. Just turned 22, has 24 SB/1 CS, can play multiple positions. I suppose I can still have hope for him as a prospect while not worrying about him being Rule V drafted. Honestly, I still have never seen Stauffer pitch.

I’m a Hall fan, too, but there’s zero chance he’d be selected in the Rule 5 draft, having never played at AA and not having that much upside.   Probably the best baserunner in our organization, and decent OBP skills (including a propensity for getting HBP), but zero power and my impression is his defense is just OK.

I think the jury is still out on Adam Hall.  He had a bad May and June but in July he has a 308/418/431/848.    Yes he has no power but if he's made an adjust and keeps hitting like that in August and Sept. he may attract some attention from other clubs in the Rule 5 draft as a UIF that can steal bases.

He could be the next Zach Pop.    I will wait to pass judgement on whether he should be on the 40 man roster this off season. After all he is 22 years old playing in A+ ball.

Is he injured again?  I haven't noticed his name in boxscores lately.    He has no power and strikes out a lot.  Bad combination.   I'm not writing him off but no one is picking him in the Rule5 even with an .848 August.

Hall was hot for a while, now he isn’t.  He’s had one hit in his last five games.   But putting that aside, I just don’t see him as the type of player who gets picked in the Rule 5 draft, even if he finishes the season strong.

Yes, he’s on 7 day IL.

Back in the day with deeper benches I could see it.

I mean, the A’s carried Herb Washington for a full season and month into a second season, and he never once had an at bat.   So, yeah, in that environment you could carry an Adam Hall, whose a better base stealer than Washington ever was.

I like the idea of giving a guy his first taste of MLB when he’s on a hot streak.

    • Watt playing is brutal. Give Murray's carries to McCrary. He has to be better by default.
    • So, league average wOBA last year was .315.  I’ve taken the lineup from the OP and added the Steamer projected wOBA for each player. 1. Mullins CF L .331 2. Hays LF R .326 3. AR     C  S .339 4. Mountcastle 1B  R .337 5. Mancini        DH  R .336 6. Santander    RF  S .323 7. Urias             2B  R .317 8. Odor            3B   L .299 9. Mateo          SS  R .283 That doesn’t look too bad at all.   The problem of course is that these 9 players won’t get all the at bats.   But at least when our regular lineup is on the field, we really only have two below average offensive players.   
    • I would have thought so, but your post suggested that you felt OBP was a better measure than OPS.
    • But as a GM they don't just pray for the best.  They evaluate the risk.
    • Lol…you realize that I’m aware of this, right?
    • Yea, I think you are one of those delusional MD fans to be honest.  The program just isn’t what it was.  I think you saying it’s definitively better than jobs I listed, when those schools are winning more and out recruiting them, is hilarious.   Again, it’s not a bad job..it’s still an excellent job.  But it’s not among the top 20ish job anymore…it’s lost luster.     It’s like UCONN…UConn was amongst some of the best jobs and now it’s not.  
    • Yes, this is a thread about hitting, and yes, I'm sure others have noted this, but when commenting about our anticipated SP success or failure, it seems most are not considering the impact AR will have.  Setting aside his above-average framing skills, I can absolutely foresee him helping raise the level of each and every pitcher with whom he teams up.   I'm quite sure we saw this impact when Wieters would catch for Tillman.  I really believe Tillman's success depended heavily on MW being there to guide him through jams and particularly to get him through outings when he didn't have his best stuff.  There are limits, of course, but I can't wait to see how much influence Rutschman's presence has on whatever staff we have in place.
