Wynn Pelzer

Recommended Posts

My buddy played against him and said he has never seen a easier 98.

His Radar Gun is on the Roids! :) I cant find anything that says he throws harder then 93-96.. I agree with everyone hopefully he can be useful.

To be fair, most of the reports we have read are evaluating him as a starter. It is pretty common for guys to add a few mph to their fastball when moved to the pen.

This was when he was a closer at SC thanks.

Really? Like who? Where does our team ERA rank once again? (Please let AO answer this one please peeps)

We have had very few pitching prospects not able to move through the system because of development. Just because they haven't pitched lights out yet doesn't mean our minor league development has been a failure.

I don't see the McCrory comparison. Pelzer is a much better prospect than McCrory ever has been. Pelzer has better control and misses more bats (looking at K% and looking at how each performed from full season ball and above).

At the same levels of pro ball, Pelzer has been younger, he's played in the two most difficult environments for pitchers between the two (California and Texas League), and most importantly, Pelzer has done this as a starter. McCrory has always been a reliever and he's never been a particularly good one.

Question was limited to the O's system. McCrory, based on physicality and stuff, was the closest I could think of off the top of my head. If you have a better comp, I'm happy to listen and agree.

I'm pleased with this return. Though not perfect, the Orioles have been successful at getting pitchers to improve their command. Britton, Hernandez, Arrieta (?) and Tillman all cut back their walks under Orioles' tutelage in the minors. Sounds like he's got a lot of talent.

Furthermore, the Orioles are showing a lot more confidence, under AM, in their abilities to develop raw talent. I like this approach.

Is anyone going to throw out a comp that isn't a FB pitcher? Do people just not pay attention to GB rate? Is that why some people are calling his stats "garbage?"

It just amuses the hell out of me when folks who don't have a clue what they're talking about go on the offensive trying to show other folks up. Tell us again how awful this trade is, big guy. We're all listening with baited breath. I sincerely appreciate the amusement. Maybe next you'll adopt the JTrea tactic and tell us how "we already have too much pitching". lol

I've written it before, but I'll write it again. Thank God some of you don't run this team. This trade is a really good one. I applaud Andy for getting someone with this much upside for 2 months of a 3B with a 680 OPS. I'm amazed the Pads did it to be honest.

Amen, brother. Preach.

I don't really follow the minors much, so allow me to echo the thoughts of a large contingent of Hangouters:

"What the heck is a Wynn Pelzer?"

:D

    • Well if you mean for Lamar I purposefully adjusted the numbers to absorb the money along they way as opposed to deferring and ending up having trouble moving on if he doesn't develop. We agree on all of the rest ....My comps for Lamar are and most likely will always be Michael Vick and RG3. They are the guys that mostly resemble his playing style. That doesn't mean their exact clones or that Lamar hasn't done better early on in his career than those guys. RG3 was injured and effectively his career ended before he developed due to the leg injury. Vick had a ton of pinashe bur could never put it all together to win the big games needed to take home the prize. I don't think Lamar ever will but I could be wrong. I'd certainly give the extension laid out similar to the above contract as he has won enough to deserve a few years. But, he's not breaking the bank here and I'm hoping the Ravens learned from the Flacco contract.      
    • Everyone talks about how tough it is to compete in the AL East, but, honestly, how many of the rotations we wil face are really scary? At least at this point.   Obviously there are still some free agents out there who can make a difference like Bauer, maybe Paxton. Certainly no one has a Nationals/Dodgers/Padres level rotation. Jays are anchored by Ryu, then Robbie Ray.   Then what?   Stripling, ???   Not a rotation that you shudder to go into a series against. Yankees have Cole and a long list of question marks. Red Sox don't have much.   We don't know what Ed Rod will be able to do after sitting out the year and possibly suffering some lung issues due to his bout with Covid.   Sale had TJ surgery last March, I doubt he's ready to start the season and the Red Sox are on record they will take it slow with him.   Martin Perez? Rays have Glasnow, Wacha, Yarborough? And this is all off the top of my head, there are probably some prospects or candidates I am not thinking of. Any of those teams could peace together a pretty decent rotation if things break right.   Or they could be really hurting if things break wrong.  But none of them look like they will ride to a winning record based on starting pitching like a Nationals team might be able to.    I'll go on record now as saying the AL East will not one of the top overall divisions in baseball this year.
    • Classy isn't a word you hear used to describe the Orio!es very often.

    • I miss Joe too. That's the problem this year for me was the broadcast was just boring. The Nats broadcasting crew are bad but entertainingly bad. It was just dry last year. Maybe that's just me 
    • I don't like Thorne being gone, but with the current roster of announcers none of them are as grating as Reghi was with his Tom Tucker announcer schtick play-by-play.  
    • I will miss Thornes voice and his story telling.  But his lack of knowledge, not knowing players, pitches, etc...makes it not a big loss for me. Garceau is kind of the opposite.  He has decent knowledge and a better understanding of things..he certainly knows Os history better.  But he’s dry as a bone.
