Most interesting is Baumann to Norfolk (finally), Rom to Bowie, and Pinto to Delmarva.

Ofelky Peralta to Norfolk is another to keep an eye on, he has been Rule 5 eligible and is somehow only 24. Could still be a big leaguer (likely as a reliever).

Brandon Young turns 23 in a couple weeks, was an undrafted free agent in 2020 and has put up decent numbers at Delmarva, so nice to see him move up a level.

If all goes well for Baumann he could be in the rotation next April in Baltimore. Im curious if the plan on stretching out further Peralta to start as well. AAA has proven to be a big challenge for many of our previous prospects. So this experiment should be interesting.

They've been using Peralta as a starter most of the year and may continue to do so, but I think his future will end up in the pen. they need to find out whether he can pitch on back to back days if needed where he could bring his upper 90s heat. He could be a Tate replacement.

Yep, and considering that he is Rule 5 eligible again this off-season, it would help to know how his stuff plays in short relief (with the AAA/MLB ball) before either adding him to the 40-man roster or risking losing him.

Prior to this season, I had him in the second tier of potential 40-man roster adds, but he has leapfrogged past guys like Sedlock, Fenter, Adam Hall, and Mason McCoy

All good moves. Looking forward to putting eyes on the short right-handed Pinto to see if he's guy or not. 

It was time for Baumann to take that step as his command has come around of late. Always interesting when they have to pitch with the major league ball at AAA and how long it takes to adjust.

Young is the most interesting of the free agent pitchers signed last year so glad to see him challenged at Aberdeen.

Rom to Bowie make a lot of sense. It will be interesting to see how his stuff plays against Double-A hitters.

I'm hoping they move Peralta to a reliever role and see how he looks there. It was time to see how he spins a major league ball.

Vespi is really moving and it's clear the Orioles think he's close to being a big league left-handed reliever, perhaps a replacement for Scott or Fry is they are dealt.

The only one missing here is Felix Bautista. While command is still not good, it's better and it's time to see what he looks like with a major league ball against more mature AAA hitters.

I’ve never understood why they use a different ball from the big leagues? What’s the purpose?

Saves about $100K per minor league team over the course of the season. MLB owners are incredibly cheap.

Cheap and stupid. I honestly never knew that and been watching baseball for 30+ years.

From what I’ve read, there are also some issues about whether there’s a sufficient supply of the quality of leather used for major league balls.

That is just a fancy way of saying, "the reason is money". There isn't a shortage of cows in this country.

If MLB wanted to open their own tannery or whatever, they certainly have the resources. Surely fans would pay more to purchase beef made with cows that provided their hides to MLB balls.

I only eat steaks from the same cow as Mike Trout HR balls

    • If Mayo was a first round pick he'd be easy on top 100 lists. Remember, these guy don't watch all these guys, they can't. They look at drafted status, bonus, and then stats. Take all these top 100 lists with a huge grain of salt.
    • Sparks finished the Aberdeen portion of his season at .240/.336/.404 in 119 PA, after slashing .256/.344/.388 at Delmarva in 183 PA.   Not spectacular, but enough to keep him in the organization next year I suspect.   Will be interesting to see if they keep him at Aberdeen or push him to Bowie.   
    • I question your 2nd paragraph.   If Georgia becomes owner with John as Orioles Executive he has already been officially name to running the team.   He has been involved with the team through he 2012-2016 period where they won more games than any team in the League.   That is a measure of success.  John has also managed MASN. As far as the MASN lawsuit with MLB.  This sounds like a good reason to settle the issue without the Angelos Suing MLB yet again for not allowing them to continue as owners.  
    • Well, you have to have the desire to keep it and there are issues with that.
    • Why are you and Frobby poo pooing Mountcastle's accomplishment? Did I miss where anyone claimed Mountcastle was better than Ripken or that his accomplishment was better than when Ripken made the record?  He broke it, congrats to him. How this turned into people poo pooing the young man's accomplishment is beyond me.
    • From David Laurila’s Sunday column: Ryan McKenna grew up in Maine and attended high school in New Hampshire, so playing at Fenway Park is an especially big thrill. Doubling off of Chris Sale in his first-ever start at the historic ballpark, which he did on August 14, was therefore a moment he won’t soon forget. I asked the Baltimore Orioles rookie outfielder about it on Friday. “He got me the first time, but I thought I saw him pretty well,” recalled McKenna, who chose humility over bravado when addressing the subject. “He’s got such a deceptive angle to his pitches, because he’s so far on the left side, so I was just trying to take it pitch-by-pitch and hoping to get one over the plate. I was trying to stay positive.” Fair enough. But just how cool was it to get an extra-base knock off a pitcher of Sale’s caliber, and do so at Fenway Park? “Very cool,” admitted the 24-year-old McKenna, who had a number of family and friends on hand that afternoon. “It’s a testament to a lot of hard work, and there’s a long road ahead, for sure. But yeah, it was pretty cool to get one off of him.” Where did it rank among the biggest moments of his young career? “Pretty high,” said McKenna. “My first home run and my first hit are No. 1 and No. 2. My first hit was actually against Boston, at Camden Yards, and my first homer was against Washington. The hit against Sale, here at Fenway, is probably No. 3.” https://blogs.fangraphs.com/sunday-notes-twins-prospect-louie-varland-is-a-st-paul-sibling-on-the-rise/
