Seeing the struggles that Gunnar is having in Aberdeen, I’ll stay cautiously hopeful for Mayo. That said, the ball sounds different coming off his bat. 

Gunnar's been OPSing over .800 in Aberdeen over the past couple weeks. I think he's adapting quite well, he's always maintained good plate discipline even when he's slumped. At both levels this season.

Mayo looks like a steal. Borderline top 100 player. He’s singlehandedly making up for the Kjerstad bad luck. After today, Mayo will have spent about have the games that Gunnar did in Delmarva. The bats are coming on. 

Here's hoping that Kerstad gets healthy and looks like a stud as well.   And Baumler gets back on the mound and looks good as well.

I don't want to add to the hype, but he's the one guy not named Rutschman that just excites me when he gets in the batters box. 

I've always said, special players do special things early. While he's got some miss still, he really hits the ball hard and that swing is explosive but under control. 

Right now, I think he has the second most upside in the system. The lack of a complete high school season in 2020 may have given the Orioles a real gift. 

Great to hear.  How do you compare him to Henderson?

Right, but the O's knew about him so other teams must have known about him too.  Lucky pick?

Right now he shows me better plate discipline and less miss in the swing. He also hits the ball consistently harder than Henderson. Now Henderson is a little more athletic but Mayo is not slough although he does have a little bit of slow feet that could make him move from 3B at some point to either RF or 1B. It's too early for that right now though.

I have Mayo over Henderson by a small margin right now.

I don't think any team had a ton on him other than what his Perfect Game type metrics were after his Junior year and those few Senior year games he had before everything shut down. He was rising fast and I think the Orioles were able to find a price tag that made sense for both of them while other teams either didn't want to meet this price tag or thought he was better off going to college.  

I think people know me and I try make guys impress me regardless of their bonus or draft status. I typically give those things as part of the early equation until I can get some eyes ons and some professional stats (above FCL level), but Mayo just stands out to me.

Holy  _______ , Tony!!  Are you moving him to #2 in your Power Rankings?
