My Initial take:
Looks like Elias is going with someone who can move quickly through the minors and be able to get and produce at the major league level quickly. While scouting takes on Cowser are a bit all over the place, he's a three year producer even though his conference is not very strong. He appears to be a high OBP guy with some pop and speed and even if Mullins is still center, he would like real good in Camden Yards spacious left field.
He appears to b a lower risk guy thoug
I'm guessing this is going to play out like it did for Manny when he decided against getting surgery on his second knee.
Good to see speedy centerfielder Prado in action.
I agree with Frobby, I would think speedy 17 year old Junior Lara would have been on my Instructs team.
I think the biggest omission is 18 year old Orioles 2 shortstop Frederick Benscome. He carried the team to a respectable 25 and 30 record. Batting left handed he hit .310/.365.451. 6 doubles, 4 triples, 2 homers, 10 for 13 steals. 18 Ks in 142 at bats. Hits the ball in the air 60% of the time. He played a little 3rd too.
