Any unsigned players out there that could be in play for 1:1 next year?

No.  There was a high school pitcher that didnt sign in the 7th round and a JC in the 10th.  Those are the only ones that didnt sign in the first 9 rounds.  The top players in next years draft will be their first year eligible to sign.  Unless someone comes out relatively no where.

General comment on the draftees thus far (and recent intl signees too for that matter), but I really like the patience being exhibited by the positional players at the plate.  Seem to be taking a lot more walks than what I’m accustomed to seeing in years past.

And on the flip side most of the pitchers appear to being doing well and succeeding at not issuing at ton of BBs. 

You have to like the early results minus a few slow starts from some guys, young Gunnar being one of those.

Elias drafted 5 Division II players and 2 Division III.  They aren't doing half bad. Maybe he has found a creative way to add talent to the system through a new pipeline.

Toby Welk (D3) - Hitting well over .300 with some pop. Could be in Delmarva soon.

Mason Janvrin (D2) - Batting .300 with 10 SBs in GCL

Shayne Fontana (D2) - Destroyed GCL, is holding own at Aberdeen.  .854 OPS between two teams.

Nick Roth (D3) - 0.00 ERA and 3 Saves in the GCL

Dillon McCollough (D2) - 8.6 BB/9 11.9 K/9 in GCL

Craig Lewis (D2) - Hit .417 at GCL, is hitting near .300 at Aberdeen

Trevor Kehe (D2) - Only played in 7 games, struggling .508 OPS. 4 Stolen Bases

I have often said that there is a lot of hidden talent in DII, DIII and JuCo. I am glad to see that Elias has the means to find it.

Nearly a walk per inning?  He most be throwing a lot of pitches per inning for these results.

    • I agree. Forget slugging, these guys just need to get on base. If Hays can have a good season in this environment, these two can as well. I don't like the "dead ball" excuse here. 
    • Wow - I was hoping Peralta would at least get a cup of coffee with as long as he's been here but his numbers are pretty awful this year..  Hope they both can catch on somewhere.
    • The other key numbers are $$$.  While I'm not looking to save the ownership money, if we extend Mancini, that's $10M (or more) per year whereas Mountcastle is still pre-arb. If we can keep the bulk of the players cost very low, it provides more flexibility for some big names when/if we do go out in free agency and compliment this team. 
    • As I recall, he started the season off really hot, missed some games because of a lat problem and never heated up again up until this week.   There's no way he can sustain this but hoping he can be a little more consistent.    He does seem to be managing the strikeouts better so far this season compared to last which is also encouraging.
    • Despite the down offensive year, there are players rising above that and having really good seasons. So, to try and uplift these guys because their OpS+ is above average ignores the fact that we are relying on them and that they are supposed to be much better than that.   Mullins should still be traded imo.
    • Exactly. Everyone busted a nut at $7 million, but we're not operating on a level playing field as the rest of baseball. We have a hitter's park reputation, we have a losing team that is very young, we play in the AL East. If people don't want the Matt Harvey's and Wade LeBlanc's of the world, the next tier is Jordan Lyles and we have to pay appropriately for that relative to the position we're in. Which is not a position of bargaining strength. We needed innings and that's what we paid for. The savviness comes when the Orioles took a chance on late-2021 Lyles being the new & improved Lyles. So far they've been right. He's been much more competitive than I thought he would be. 
    • Mullins did hit it decently well the other way I believe twice last night, but Gerrit Cole outside pitches probably made that a necessity more than any kind of intention.    This is a consolidation year after the Too Good to be True one. Despite the recent slump, last week at the end of the hot streak he was still flickering into the Top 10 in AL position player WAR. I don't think he's gonna be able to hold off Trout to keep his All-Star spot though. For all the frustrating day-to-day variance, to me Mountcastle year-to-year feels like a low variance player.   Hyde in the postgame last night clarified Mountcastle rather than Mancini pulled for McKenna defensive switch since he was higher in order, and it was more about delaying a McKenna PA as long as possible in that contingency.
