A battle of 2021 rookies, Tyler Wells vs Alek Manoah, the jackass who intentionally threw at Maikel Franco after giving up a couple HRs last year.

Austin Hays back in the lineup after paternity leave.   Jorge Mateo back at short so I guess that stomach muscle is feeling better.

A day off for Cedric.

2. Austin Hays (R) LF
3. Anthony Santander (S) RF

In the 3rd Well gives up a double and a walk  then gets Bichette to fly out and Vlad to hit into a double play.  FB 93-94.  Had trouble throwing the slider for strikes.   9 pitches,   41 total after 3.

When 2.2 IP last outing so he is already at his longest outing for the spring.

7 minutes ago, wildcard said:

Lakins is charged with two runs on three singles that did not get out of the infield.  One to 2B, one to 3B and one to 1B.  And a walk.

BJ 2,  O's 1 after 5 IP.

I'm assuming from this that Lakins line looks much worse than he actually pitched.

    • Tipping pitches? On the bright side, he's got pretty good K/9 and low BB/9. Could be he is getting really, really, really bad luck on BABIP? Looks like the 4th blew up very quickly. Somehow he gave up 5 runs on 11 pitches. 
    • What’s odd is that he walked 5 but he had a 67% str% and only threw 28 balls.  It’s not like he was wild and couldn’t find the plate. But that is back to back poor starts and certainly doesn’t put him on the road to Baltimore any time soon.
    • I don’t disagree, not entirely. He did not get many chances early in his career. But I don’t think he impressed enough either. He did move into the starter role in 2019, and then had a fly ball hit him in the head. He had other misplays and got himself injured. I think it was an ankle, a knee and something else. The guy had some chances along the way. 2021 was really the first time where he played a lot. 77 starts is a very good amount. My eyes cannot unsee his slow bat getting beaten over and over again by 90 MPH FB’s.  In those years, they had Adam Jones (2018), Mancini, Mountcastle, Santander, Hays, Mullins and McKenna. They also had immortals Dwight Smith Jr., Stevie Wilkerson, Keon Broxton, Jace Peterson, Renato Nunez (DH), Mason Williams, Joey Rickard, Mark Trumbo, etc…who they gave at bats to over Stewart. I think that tells us how they valued him.  They kept Stewart and the others and moved Yaz. I think Stewart was always at the mediocre side of those in the organization. He was kept around because he is a LH bat, with some above average raw power, who might figure it out. He didn’t. They evaluated him on a daily basis, in his preparation and such. I guess he could do a Yaz on us. Honestly, good for him. He’s not a good fit here. Maybe another team has room for a guy who can be an everyday mediocre DH. Not an AL East team. We cannot get our parties in a twist if a guy goes elsewhere and has decent results. 
    • Yup, I was wondering the same. Sad to see him getting roughed up routinely.
    • I guess I'm just being nitpicky again because, to me, a seasons worth of at bats over five years isn't numerous chances with everyday play. I'm fine with moving on but he didn't get a multiple chances to just go out there every day thrive or struggle. And if you aren't trying to win games for years on end you should be doing that.
    • I can definitely make a case. The past two years, he had several extended chances where he played pretty much everyday, especially when Santander and Hays were injured. He showed no signs of improvement. Slow bat, and he has lost whatever moderate speed he once had. Mediocre fastballs mystified him.  In 2021, he started 65 games in the OF, and 12 at DH. .204/.324.374/.698 with 89 K’s in 318 plate appearances. He had the one 10 day period in 2020, where he hit 7 HR’s like Babe Ruth. That really skews his career stats.  Hyde stopped playing him, because he is awful. They were patient with him. They gave him every chance. He failed. He was not claimed by the other 29 teams. He is currently emergency insurance for OF. As you said, in five years, he had his shot. If he had been better, he would have gotten more opportunities earlier. 
    • I believe this week's 3B games for Westburg are his first in AAA after a few weeks. Gunnar SS-SS-3B-3B-SS-3B Westburg 2B-3B-SS-SS-3B-SS
