Friday night! College updates:


Recommended Posts

Love Friday nights- colleges send their best pitchers out to the mound to square off.

Deck Mcguire pitched well, but was defeated by our own Maryland Terrapins. He had 8 IP 7 hits (2 HR) 3 BB 6 K's.

My man, Drew Pomeranz, was his usual dominant self: 6 IP 1 hit! 2 BB 9 K's.

Danny Hultzen was phenomenal for 8 IP 3 hits 1 BB 12 K's.

Christian Colon is 1-2 so far tonight.

Too bad Hultzen is a 2011 guy, he would fit nicely at 1:3 as a college arm with good stuff and good polish and fantastic approach and some polish. Just out of curiosity, how is Matt Harvey doing this season so far? Talk about a guy who actually didn't benefit from going to college as far as his big payday is concerned....

Harvey is looking very good -- just spoke with an AL evaluator who had nothing but good things to say.

I would be surprised if Hultzen is in top 5 consideration next year -- honestly, probably not top 15 for me right now (though he's a very impressive kid). Just so much high-level talent in the '11 class....

I guess his pure stuff just isn't up there with the others, but I meant had he been in the 2010 draft, he would be a decent choice at 1:3, but next year he will have many guys ahead of him...

Thats nice to hear about Harvey, hopefully he can continue to pitch well and work his way back up the draft board. The biggest thying I noticed about Harvey was the fact that in HS reports I read, he sat in the low 90's and touched 95, but whenever I saw him pitch, he topped out at around 92-ish....I hope his velo is back 100%......

He's an excellent pitcher. It's just tough when you think about the top players in the draft next year:

Rendon

Jungmann

Norris

Purke

Meyer

Gray

Bundy

Bradley-J

Harrison

Bradley-A

Hultzen

etc.

It's a tough group to gain any ground on. Just a silly amount of talent -- silly.

    • Just add Mayo and Cowser to your list and the roster makes sense.
    • Let's look at the roster requirements.  The active MLB roster allows 26 players. Now do we have 4 outfielders or 5? I would assume we keep at least 13 pitchers with 8 of those in the bullpen. So that would leave 13 position players at best. 2 Catchers, 2 1Bmen, + Gunnar/Mateo/Urias/Westburg as IF utility. So that's 8 infielders all practically guaranteed to make the team from seniority on 2 winning Orioles teams, plus the 3 starting outfielders in Hays/Mullins/Santander. What we have are likely 2 outfield positions, with one of those possibly being another infield uitlity player, but maybe not probable. If they have 2 bench outfielders then at least one of those is probably preferred to be a left handed batter and the other probably to be a right handed batter. They might also want someone who has the skills to play centerfield, unless the scenario that either Mateo or Hays is thought to be the primary backup center-fielder. Which could be a very good idea in order to allow a corner outfielder on the roster.
    • How so? They knew Bradish had a season-threatening injury a month before the trade with Milwaukee, and that Burnes was therefore just filling a hole rather than serving as a true addition to the rotation. ...who merely replaced the incumbent ace of the staff, who may not pitch at all for us in 2024. No real upgrade has actually occurred.  
    • I have to say, if we’re still at a point where signing some SP5 has to be contingent in any way on dumping $3.5M of Ryan O’Hearn — that would be so very disheartening.  I get why folks want to see Kjerstad over O’Hearn. We all want to see Kjerstad. We all want to see the very exciting all-homegrown-prospect lineups we’ve been pontificating about ad nauseum for years now.  But we’re trying to win it all this season, and O’Hearn had a higher wRC+ in the bigs last year than Kjerstad did in AAA. Just dumping a guy who was a critical part of the lineup last year on blind faith seems a bit rash. And unnecessary.  Maybe O’Hearn regresses to his pre-2023 form. Maybe Kjerstad absolutely rakes. The nice thing is, we have the luxury of letting it all play out. It’s a very long season. If O’Hearn hits his way off the team — or Kjerstad hits his way onto it — then great. That’s a miscalculation we can easily (and happily) correct. But if you ship O’Hearn out and then Kjerstad can’t hack it (or gets hurt, that’s much tougher to un-do. 
    • I love the sound of that crack of the bat. It means spring is almost here!
    • Thanks for this. I was actually thinking earlier while browsing the message board that I wanted to follow Hall and was thinking about looking up his stat page.
