So, when McKenna and Mullins are both playing for Baltimore, is it Mullins that will stay in CF?  

Mullins is the better centerfielder currently. McKenna is still rough around the edges on tracking and routes. Mullins also has elite body control and McKenna does not. That said, McKenna has a higher ceiling defensively because he's faster and he has a better arm.

An OF of McKenna, Mullins and Hays could cover some serious ground.   Not sure where you stash Stewart, Mancini and maybe Mountcastle.    

And Santander has been hitting well in AA.

We have potentially 6 outfielders who could all be ready to play in Baltimore by 2020:  Stewart, Mullins, Hays, Santander, McKenna, and Mountcastle if he has to be converted.  The first three probably have a 2019 ETA and the second three a 2020.  

1 or 2 probably wash out or won't be everyday players, but it will be interesting to see how they deal with the log jam since prospect for prospect trades almost never happen.

Meh.   .313/.327/.417.    

The power is almost non-existent, like it was in Baltimore.  That is a concern considering he's a corner outfielder and not a plus defender.  

He's falling behind the other OF prospects IMO.  Before I had him behind Mullins and neck in neck with Stewart.

He was always a clear tier below those two for me, the raw power is there, but he's not getting to it in-game currently.

Vlad Jr. - 19 years old in AA with wRC+ of 208

McKenna - 21 years old in A+ with wRC+ 173

Vlad may be a generational talent at the plate.  McKenna may be a good MLB outfielder.

I know service time clock issues, etc... but boy would that OF right now make the O's games so much more enjoyable to watch.  They can't possible lose more either, right?
