fWAR in 2012 is slightly less accurate than last year, but still shows as a telling statistic.
A crazy season comes with crazy, historical statistics. Here is the Baltimore Orioles 2012 season “By the Numbers”.
The GCL Orioles roster was not quite as exciting as it has been in past years, but there were still some very talented players on the roster.
ON has tons of statistics and scouting terms defined and explained. Browse here.
Dylan Bundy has been promoted to the major leagues, according to Ken Rosenthal.
Devin Jones struggled in the NYPL in 2011, where he posted a 6.08 ERA in 14 appearances with Aberdeen. However, in 2012, his greatly improved command and sinker allowed him to dominate out of the bullpen in the South Atlantic League and enjoy success as a starter in the Carolina League.
The Orioles acquired lefty Mike Belfiore from the Diamondbacks to complete the Josh Bell trade. Belfiore found little difficulty in his first year as a reliever with the Baysox and narrowly beat out Chris Petrini for this award.
This obviously didn’t come as a shock to anyone reading this. Dylan Bundy was one of — if not the — most dominating pitcher in the minor leagues this past season and we didn’t think twice about handing him our Minor League Pitcher of the Year Award.
