2021 14th round pick (407): Daniel Lloyd - RHP - (Junior) South Carolina

Recommended Posts

Quote

Other pitchers who have increased their velocity since arriving on campus include seniors Parker Coyne and Cam Tringali and junior Daniel Lloyd. All have gained at least 20 pounds at USC, and all have hit at least 95 mph. Kingston credited that improvement in part to strength coach Billy Anderson.

Lloyd appears to be the only unsigned player from this draft. Since he doesn't turn 21 until August, I wonder if he thinks sticking around for his senior season will help him get more money.

The Orioles could give him up to $189,900 without going over their cap. As a college reliver, I'm not sure he's going to find more money next year, but I guess we'll see how it shakes out. 

He has one week to decide.

Other than the fact that Mark Kingston chews up arms yearly, South Carolina would be a great place to spend another year. 

Hope we get him signed.

That's certainly his attitude. He butchered guys at Illinois State. Had some players though, Paul DeJong, Brock Stewart, Will Headen, Dylan Craig.

    • So trade our best performing position player in order to get prospects that don’t usually pan out… i.e Machado deal  Pass 
    • I think the Orioles wanted Manny for the playoffs.  In a noncompetitive season they may have had a different view.
    • There were some aspects of the Manny knee situation I’d forgotten.   In particular, when Manny shut down and had surgery on the second knee, that wasn’t what the team wanted him to do.   "Our original approach was to have him rest and then to try to play and then see if he could play ball. We also knew there was a chance of a recurrence. Given this injury and the time of the season, we thought that we would rest it and try to recover and come back and play for the rest of the year. But Manny didn't feel that was the best option." (This quote from Duquette was in a post by weams without a link.).   It also seems that Manny had the option of “rest and rehab” with the first knee and opted for surgery.    Here’s a link to the weams post, which is in a very long thread on this topic.   https://forum.orioleshangout.com/forums/index.php?/topic/17946-manny-machado-expected-to-have-surgery-on-knee-within-a-week/page/35/#comments Anyway, I’d say Manny really did the opposite of what Tatis is doing, i.e., favoring surgery over rest and rehab.    
    • The thing about Adam Is that he comes across as genuine. He’s not one of these arrogant jerks like “well, you remember that I never gave up a grand slam” Palmer who reminds us every single chance he gets, and shares memories like a king distributes largesse. Adam is just a guy telling stories. I wonder how he’d be as a broadcaster?
    • I'm 45 minutes in.  It's a good interview. I love Adam Jones as much as anyone else.  But he's about 10 years away from being a guy doing commentary on a broadcast and annoying the hell out of the audience like Joe Morgan, Tim McCarver, etc with the "back in my day" type of attitude.
    • Adam will always be one of my favorite Orioles. I wonder who our next Adam Jones will be. Not only from a performance standpoint but from being outspoken and keeping it 💯.
