Position Player of the Week – Chance Sisco, C (Low-A, Delmarva)
.474/.524/.789 (9/19) with 2 2B, HR, 6 RBI, 2 BB, 3 K
Sisco was drafted as a bat-first player with enough athleticism to potentially stick behind the plate. With a short and compact swing, he has begun to really put up numbers for Delmarva. One could make an argument that Sisco is the best positional talent in the Orioles entire organization at this point. While the defense is still a work in progress, Sisco has all the ability to become a top prospect in the game. The past week will certainly not hurt his chances, as he went 4-5 in one game and had two 2-4 games as well.
Starting Pitcher of the Week – Dylan Bundy, RHP (SS-A, Aberdeen)
5.0 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 6 K
Some pitchers might have put better stat lines together this week, but after the long road Bundy has taken, this award is well-deserving. Bundy has progressed quickly for a player having Tommy John Surgery, and our Staff Writer Alex Conway was at his press conference to highlight Bundy’s thoughts.
Relief Pitcher of the Week – Dariel Delgado, RHP (SS-A, Aberdeen)
3.0 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K
Delgado is a guy that might get a chance to start down the line, but likely is a reliever in the long run. He has more exertion in his delivery than you typically want in a starter. But Delgado has a quick arm and can pump his fastball. It will be interesting to see how the Orioles handle Delgado the rest of this season, and whether he will be specifically used in long relief spurts out of the Aberdeen bullpen.
