Thanks for sharing!

By May I am hopeful the Top 3 Norfolk starters there displace Ellis, Kriske and Greene.   The other pitchers in your BAL column I don't begrudge them their tryouts.   There was some tandem starting in the high minors this year and for what 2022 is I think that makes sense for the 8 bulk guys for the old school SP 3-5 roles behind Means and Grayson.   That basket, Tyler Wells based on this year maybe most potential to break out of once or twice through the order shackles eventually.

With alternating this week, I don't feel like the club has picked a SS candidate between the thoroughbreds yet, but am curious to see in early 2022 if the club thinks either of them can do it everyday.

Michael Baumann another bulk guy candidate, though I feel like jury is still out on if he has successfully whistled past the surgery graveyard with whatever happened to his arm last summer.   It is a little bit hard to imagine him having had the Bowie success in late 2019 that he did with the stuff we are seeing now.

Nice list @RZNJ .  It would be real hard to hold Watson back from AAA. Jones can find ABs in a Util role. Players need to produce or get passed over. Watson just went 20/20. 
 

Also, please don’t include the MLB team. 😂. It’s too depressing. I come to this board to get away from that.

Watson could go either way.  Nice season but the walk/strikeout numbers indicate an area he might be better off working on at a level that he has some sort of comfort zone.

Good list.  All pretty reasonable, but I like Watson in Triple A as well.  Robert Neustrom could break with the big league club with a good spring as a fourth OF/DH/platoon lefty.  He'll be 25 when the season starts.  The DJ Stewart experiment needs to end.

Nice post! I like playing around with this stuff as well. A few disagreements:

I'd leave Hernaiz in Delmarva to start. He's still young and didn't hit that well this year (.691 OPS).

Servideo should start in Aberdeen despite missing time this year. He hit well in his limited PAs there and he'll be 23 on OD.

I don't see much point in starting DL Hall at AA. He dominated there (though in only 30 IP) and he'll be on the 40-man. I'd put him in Norfolk with Grayson.

Servideo only had 92 PA at Delmarva.  He also struck out 26 times.   His OPS of .801 is inflated by a great walk rate.   He might be pushed up because his age compared to Hernaiz but I think Hernaiz makes the most sense from a straight accomplishment perspective.   Hernaiz had 410 PA's at Delmarva this year.   He only struck out 70 times.  While his OPS was 690 compared to 801 for Servideo the difference is entirely in the OBP.  Hernaiz hit .333/.358/.690.   Servideo .489/.311/.801.

Hernaiz slugged better and struck out less.  Servideo was great at taking a walk.

I'd reward Hernaiz for a full season at Delmarva in which her survived and progressed.   Actually, a very solid season for a player who just turned 20 on August 3.   What the Orioles will do, I have no idea but I thought Servideo returning to Delmarva made the most sense.

Neustrom in AAA (age 24, 54 games): .245/.343/.457, 23.9% K rate 

Stewart in AAA (age 24-25, 179 games): .255/.353/.444, 20.0% K rate

Neustrom in AA (age 24, 62 games): .284/.364/.467, 16.9% K rate

Stewart in AA (age 23, 126 games): .279/.381/.485, 15.9% K rate   

Pretty similar.   Neustrom has significantly less time at each level than Stewart.  I think Neustrom may have a better glove, though I think Tony has said he’s pretty pedestrian out there.

Good starting point.  Although, you never know what off season moves will be made.  For example, I really don't want Severino back, but who knows what the team thinks.  With the likelihood that Rutschman will be up within a few weeks, Severino is an unnecessary expense and use of an off-season 40 man roster spot.  We could sign a veteran free agent pitcher or third baseman, and that could change things slightly.  But going with what we have right now is really all you can do and I think you did pretty well.

Servideo will be 23 on OD. That's really old for Delmarva. It's time for him to be pushed rather than play it conservative.

Hernaiz will be 20. Spending a few months in Delmarva and a few months in Aberdeen is very reasonable for a 20 year old. Especially given that he was a below average hitter in Delmarva this year.

I agree that Servideo might be pushed over Hernaiz because of age.  You call Hernaiz a below average hitter at that level but he did almost everything better than Servideo other than walk a lot.  Servideo didn't hit and showed zero power.  I hope Servideo develops.  I would return him to Delmarva and look to promote him quickly if he looks good.

    • I was a little disappointed that Junior Lara, who got a late start in the DSL but did well there, wasn’t invited to Instructs.   I still expect he’ll play in the FCL next year.   
    • How far is Bellinger from free agency?  It would be nice to get him to sign to an extension, but I don't see a reason for him to do so.  If he even partially rebounds, he would want a $100 mill deal. 
    • My wife and I decided to watch this HBO miniseries after it won several Emmys, including Kate Winslet for best actress in a limited series (7 episodes each about an hour).   It’s fantastic.   It’s about a police detective (the title character Mare) in a small, run down Pennsylvania town, where everyone knows everyone and half the people are related.  Mare has a lot of baggage of her own, slowly revealed as she tries to solve a murder that happens in the town.  Winslet is fantastic in the role, and the whole cast is great.  There are plot twists right to the end.  Highly recommend it.   
    • Hey Sportsfan; Thank you for the compliments.  So there are 3 DSL guys in Florida now. 17 year old Samuel Basallo received $1.3 million.  The biggest bonus of the Elias Era.  He was expected to sign with the Yankees.  He was very good batting .239/.338/.410 for a .748 OPS.  5 homers, 8 doubles.  Now in Instructional League.  Led Orioles 1 in homers and RBIs 17 year oldShortstop Maikol Hernandez received $1.2 million.  He hit .231/.340/.308 for a .647 OPS.  No homers, only 4 for 7 in steals. He is in the Instructional League so they still believe in him. 17 year old 3rd baseman Anderson De Los Santos received $350,00. He hit a robust..324/.409/.495 for a .905 OPS.  He also filled in at short, but made to many errors.  A little error prone at 3rd, but he's a converted shortstop.  Only 18 strikeouts in 127 at bats, 15 walks.  6 doubles, 2 triples, 3 homers, 3 for 4 steals.  Tremendous 1st year, now in the Instructructional League.   17 year old speedy centerfielder Junior Lara received $160,00.  Batted .344/.434/.500 in only 77 at bats.  So he missed half the season with an injury. 17 year old Rightfielder Wilmer Feliciano received $400,000.  He struggled with strikeouts and groudouts.  Hit .202/.312/.353 for a .665 OPS. Hit 4 doubles, 1 triple, 4 homers.  Also 3 for 3 in steals.  119 at bats, 45 strikeouts, 70% groundouts to 30% flyouts.  Terrible ratios for a big-time power hitter.  I would think his swing can be corrected. I was disappointed in Orioles 1.  13 and 39 overall.  With all those bonus babies, still a young team. Orioles 2 was a competitive team with modest bonus players.  25 wins 30 losses. Their most intriguing player was 18 year old Shortstop Frederick Benscome. He was a late Class of 2019 signee.  6 feet 160lbs left handed power from a shortstop. 142 at bats, 6 doubles,4 triples, 2 homers, 11 walks, only 18 strikeouts.  10 steals in 13 attempts. 60% flyouts to 40 % ground outs.  I would have thought he should be in Instructional League teaching others how to make contact and put the ball in the air !!!!    
    • I'm not a big supporter of former major league stars as managers.  The history of baseball is full of players who were great as players and failures as managers.  Let Adam prove himself in the minors somewhere before getting a manager job with the O's.  I hate to look back on past manager searches, where the guy's main qualification seems to be that he played for the O's.
