What’s your OPS and WAR/162 prediction for Rutschman next year?

Which is why it says, in the title, WAR/162.
 

Yea I get it, WAR 162 is normalized and suggests some sort of linear proportional growth.  I dont find much value in that.

What was Alex Bohm's WAR 162 last year?

Jake Cronenworth?

Vastly different results based on their rookie year.

I just feel that his presence, leadership and on field play will make him tremendously valuable to this team immediately. Like he may only be worth 3-4 WAR but the team Could be 10-15 games better with just him on the team. 

Because the pitchers will benefit from him catching instead of someone else.

I just used WAR/162 because we don’t know if Rutschman will be called up on April 15 or June 15 (or some other date, depending on the CBA).    No reason more complicated than that.

Where do you bat Rutschman?  Mullins, Rutschman, Mountcastle, Hays, as the 1-4?  

I'm not sure if he starts out in the top third of the order or gets his feet wet a bit lower first, but eventually, I'd slide him in the 2 or 3 hole. I've liked when it has been Mullins then Mountcastle so I may be keen to put Rutschman in the 3-hole to go L-R-S-R-R (with Mancini 4 and Hays 5...or the other way around--assuming Mancini is still here). If Santander is then hitting sixth, that gives us a respectable top 2/3 of the order. Would be better if they could add a veteran for 3B or SS.

Btw, I think people thinking he’s not going to catch a lot are wrong.  There is no reason not to catch him a lot.  The best catchers catch a lot and do it from the time they enter the league.  Adley shouldn’t be any different.

 

What is a lot?  130-140 games?  More?

We really are expecting a lot from a rookie catcher.  Myself included.

No, we are expecting a lot from a guy who is supposedly one of the best prospects over the last decade.  
 

If he is as good as advertised, we should all be expecting a lot.  We should be expecting an MVP level player and a guy who can be the ROY. Wander Franco has come right up And played well.

And yes, I know Adley is a C but I think that narrative is overrated.  
 

And btw, I bet our expectations are less than his.

What I expect in his rookie year vs. what I expect in his prime are a bit different.   He’ll be a pretty mature rookie though.   This isn’t Vlad Jr. coming up at age 20.

No reason he shouldn’t hit the ground running in his rookie year.  The top guys are normally good from the beginning.

He should catch around 75-85% of the games he is here for. Over a full 162 game season, 130 games is 80%.

I’m guessing they start him off with a lighter workload than that.   This year he’s only caught in 79 games (77 starts) of the 119 games he’s played in.   It would be a lot to ramp him up to 130 in his first year in the majors.   I’ll say it will be 70-75% of the games he’s eligible to play in (which wouid be 113-121 games in a full season, but we don’t know exactly when he’ll get called up).

    • Nothing happens til it happens, but can we glean anything meaningful from what the insiders say?   ”Listening to offers” means nothing. Does anyone NOT listen to offers? However, that’s probably indicates less interest than a term like… ”Dangling.” What does that mean? Is GM A calling up GM B and saying,” hey, I got this hot guy, and he can be yours! All I need is XX.” Is GM A being coy and hitting that MAAAAAAYBE he’ll listen…? Regardless, it probably indicates more desire to trade, but maybe not as much as… “Eager to deal” or “seeking the best matchup” which is where GM A is calling up everyone in the Rolodex and saying,” Have I got a deal for you! AND if you ACT NOW…no? Well, how about……etc etc” All  those terms indicate at least partially dealing from a position of “I don’t have to” “I’m in no hurry” “if you don’t, someone else will,” and so on. But pity the guys who… ”Are willing to eat most of the contract…” the fools who rush in, and then find it veeeeery expensive to rush back out.. poor San Diego would be less poor if they hadn’t flung all that cash at Mr Hosmer, but they did, and he has been smiling ever since…and they..” are willing to eat most of his contract” Anyway, where does that leave the Orioles? We’re listening. Sure we are. Everyone listens except your cat in the backyard who doesn’t want to come in yet. We are “dangling”…. That means we’re listening a bit more earnestly, but still it’s our call. Nothing will happen unless it’s very good for the Bmore boys. So let’s see what kind of horse trader Mike is, and what can he bring home in return for the shiny bauble he is dangling…
    • I think we are going to have to get some favorable results from our own young pitchers to improve significantly in 2022. Last year was a bottom 20% outcome in that regard compared to the range of possible outcomes from that group.    If things break the other way in 2022 we could see a lot more wins.   But you can’t just expect that to happen given their performance to date.   
    • I’m happy they’re open to listening to offers.   Obviously, you don’t trade him unless there’s a lot coming back.  
    • #1 or #2 in the 2 major lists.
    • Cedric was one of the few reasons to watch the Orioles last year, but at the same time if you can flip Cedric for two good players and another one or two players that can contribute, then it's something Elias has to consider. Even with their minor league system ranking high now the Orioles still need all the talent they can get. And anyone on the active roster should be available at the right price.
