Topics include Majors, Minors, Transactions, etc.

The post ON Mailbag 2/13 – 2/16 appeared first on Orioles-Nation.

Welcome to the first addition of the Orioles Nation Mailbag. If you have future questions, you can submit them here:

All major league questions answered by Alex Conway.
All minor league questions answered by Tucker Blair.

Do you believe the current 2014 version of the Baltimore Orioles is a legitimate playoff contender and if not, do you believe any REALISTIC additions this winter could have made it one?

As of this writing, the Orioles are probably not playoff contenders. They have too many holes in the rotation. If things break right (i.e Gausman is an ace and Bundy can be great this year as well), they could be contenders, but the Opening Day roster is maybe marginally better than the 2013 Opening Day Roster. If you assume a $100 million payroll, there are some additions that could have been made. Balfour would have strengthened the bullpen, but the price was high as it always is for “proven closers.” Yoon is a smart pickup at a low price, but the unknowns with him make it hard to determine how valuable he will be this season. Ervin Santana or Ubaldo Jimenez would make this team—again as currently constructed—serious wild card contenders.

I do not think any realistic position player addition would have made this team better. Cruz and Morales are flawed one dimensional players and cost a draft pick while every other free agent of note was out of price range. Some trade targets were out there, Logan Morrison or Ike Davis. However Morrison is flawed and the reported asking price for Ike Davis was a little high. They needed to add quality pitching and have yet to add enough, Santana or Jimenez in combination with Yoon change that equation. A.J. Burnett also made a ton of sense, and did not require the draft pick compensation, but he didn’t appear to want to go to the AL and offering more than what he got from the Phillies would have meant no other acquisitions. Matt Garza also made sense, but with his injury history he is more of a gamble. Also, of note and still on the market, is Chris Capuano. He has some good peripheral statistics and may be cheap at this point and if they sign him in conjunction with Santana or Jimenez it would further improve the rotation and the team. The position players are good enough—while still flawed—to produce enough runs, but the pitching staff lags too far behind in quality currently to make the Orioles true playoff contenders.

What is the name of the young (16 year old) pitcher signed by Fred Ferreira (on the spot) a few months ago? He is from the Dominican Republic. I believe that he was sent to the Minor League Facility in Twin Lakes the next day.

That would be 16-year-old RHP Olelky Peralta out of the Dominican Republic. The Orioles signed him for $325,000 and he is probably the best pitching prospect they have signed internationally since Eduardo Rodriguez. From all reports, he can clock his fastball into the mid 90’s and has hit upper 90′s. As a starter, he probably sits 92-94 mph right now, but also has a feel for a change up. I talked to two within the industry about him – both slapped a 6 fastball on him with potential for better. Without seeing Peralta play, that already sounds very promising. The Shark (Fred Ferreira) has been a terrific pickup for the O’s.

Will the O’s seriously consider landing Santana or Jimenez to bolster the staff? Yoon seems like a bullpen arm, maybe a 7th inning guy. And what about the possibility of signing Nelson Cruz to an incentive based 1 year deal? Reimold/Lough platoon in left just doesn’t seem like a great start to 2014.

I’ll respond all three of your questions/statements separately.

I think the pursuit is genuine at this point of both Santana and Jimenez. Duquette has stated multiple times on the record he expected the payroll to approach $100 million. There is enough money left to sign one of them to a maximum of $16 million per annum which should be slightly above market price. I believe they will add at least one more starting candidate before the season starts, whether that is Santana, Jimenez, or someone else is what remains to be seen.

Suk-min Yoon

Suk-min Yoon

Yoon is an unknown, projecting him to be anything right now is relatively foolhardy. Scouting reports range from bullpen to 4th or 5th guy in a rotation. He could be better, he could be worse. His contract makes him valuable and cheap at either position especially if he can put up quality outings.

Nelson Cruz is a very flawed player coming off a PED suspension that requires draft pick compensation. He plays poor defense and is a declining player. I think Lough alone is more valuable than Cruz. Also, I don’t think Lough platoons with Reimold. I think Lough should be the everyday left fielder. He has shown no evidence of being bad against lefties and in fact he hits them slightly better. Lough was a great pick up who costs nothing now and cost near nothing to get, a fantastic pick up by Duquette in my estimation.

Why do you think the O’s drafted so many catchers in early rounds last year? Are we going to develop them all and trade bait some since it’s such a scarce position? How can we fit so many top draft picks onto so few low-level minor league teams?

The MLB draft is different from other professional sports such as Basketball and Football. In Baseball, you largely draft the best player available or a player that you believe will fit under your budget at that selected round. There are a few reasons for that:
1. It often takes at least 3+ years for most prospects to even crack a MLB roster. An 18 year old is most likely not going to have any effect on the major league roster for at least 3-5 years, and sometimes longer. At this point, the Orioles really have no clue what Matt Wieters’ status will be in 2017.

2. Prospects have substantial value on the trading market, and certain positions are usually stockpiled because of how important they are (SS, C, P would be my three most important positions). Just think about how important catchers are. The Brian Ward’s of the world are invaluable to an organization because they can call a good game and play terrific defense. You need a guy like that at every level to further the development of pitching.

For the Orioles, it made sense to take Chance Sisco, Jonah Heim and Alex Murphy all in the same draft. Like I said, you can never have enough catchers. Also, the Orioles do lack depth at the position throughout the minors. All three players are young, but they also are on completely different stages of their development.

Sisco could start the 2014 season with the Delmarva Shorebirds

Chance Sisco could start the 2014 season with the Delmarva Shorebirds

- Chance Sisco is the most advanced and will most likely spend majority of his time with Delmarva in 2014. He has a good idea of how to use the bat and will require the least adjustment out of them offensively.

- Alex Murphy is most likely slated for Aberdeen in 2014. He hit fairly well in the GCL, and should see the natural progression line of a high school player.

- Jonah Heim was very raw and very young when drafted. I fully expect him to begin in the GCL again and he will probably get substantial playing time compared to last year.

The good thing with catchers is that they can work on many things (like footwork, defense, framing) outside of the game. This will be a fun trio to watch for the next few years.

Can Steve Pearce and Delmon Young coexist on the 25-man roster?

I think they can, but it likely means Nolan Reimold is not on the roster. I have gone back and forth on whether Young will make the team or not. He hits lefties really well, but that’s all he can do. Pearce hits lefties well, not as well but still productive, and can play a serviceable left field and first base. I think the versatility of Pearce wins out. Although, Reimold’s roster spot seems like a foregone conclusion to many and I don’t think that is the case.

How about your ranking of rhsp and lhsp in the minors?

These are players that I feel still at least have a glimmer of hope for starting, or are definite starters. I did not go any lower than the GCL.
(Note: Kevin Gausman and Dylan Bundy are 1a/1b to me)

2014 Orioles Best Tools List http://orioles-nation.com/2014/01/06/2014-orioles-best-tools-list/ http://orioles-nation.com/2014/01/06/2014-orioles-best-tools-list/#comments Mon, 06 Jan 2014 12:00:27 +0000 http://orioles-nation.com/?p=14425 A look at the best tools within the Orioles' farm system.

The post 2014 Orioles Best Tools List appeared first on Orioles-Nation.

]]>
2013 was another interesting year, with a lot of exciting things happening down on the farm. In case you missed it, the Aberdeen Ironbirds finally made the playoffs. The Norfolk Tides decided that they wanted to challenge the 2012 roster for “most players used”.  Bowie and Frederick had some terrific pitching. We had a knuckleball fad, which may still be a thing (A good thing at that! Please re-sign Eddie Gamboa). I was even able to witness the debut of Hunter Harvey, and it was one of the more enjoyable nights I have experienced at a baseball game.

Now, it is time to put the 2013 season behind us and prepare for 2014. Below is my grading scale of the Orioles’ minor league system as of the final game in 2013. Some of the information can be accredited to scouts, while some of it is from my own eyes. I tried to blend both together as much as possible. This list is going to change a ton over the next few months. It is simply inevitable as players grow and train over the course of an off-season. It should also be noted that some of the recently drafted players have not been able to establish enough of a track record for any evaluation in the minors. With that, let us move onto the 2014 Orioles Best Tools List.

The Orioles do not have a deep farm system. They certainly have some talent, but there is a noticeable drop-off in tools and skill-level after the first wave of “top prospects”. However, I truly believe that with the right development, the Orioles do have a few gems that nobody is talking about. I have only heard good things about Brian Graham and his group, so that is a step in the right direction. There is a long ways to go before the Orioles’ farm system is truly improved, but they have to start somewhere.

The 20-80 scouting scale was used to help evaluate and list the players’ tools. If you are not familiar with the grading system, here is a summary of the scale:

20: Very Poor

30: Well-Below Average

40: Below Average

45Fringe-Average

50: Average

55Solid-Average

60Plus

70Plus-Plus

80: Top-Tier

Pitching

Fastball Kevin Gausman 70/75 Plus fastball that sits 96-98 mph and can touch 100mph. Explosive velocity, sharp downward plane, plus movement on both 2S and 4S.
Dylan Bundy 70/70 One of the easier fastballs you will see. Explosive, yet smooth. Able to routinely locate it and is commanded plus around 93-96 mph.
Hunter Harvey 50/65 93-96 mph with late movement. In 2013, fell to 91-94 mph after first two innings. Needs to work on control and stamina to improve this pitch.

Honorable Mention/On the Rise: Jacob Bray, Parker Bridwell, Oliver Drake

Changeup Kevin Gausman 65/70 Solid circle change with late hand side action and depth away. Already a plus pitch with some room to become a true plus-plus pitch.
Dylan Bundy 60/65 Plus fade and works extremely well off his fastball. “pulls the string” and provides a ton of deception.
Zach Davies 55/60 Solid-average fade against righties, plus fade against lefties. Mixes well with fastball, spots well. Seems to have confidence to throw change on any count. Problem comes from his fastball not having much difference in velocity.

Honorable Mention/On the Rise: Tim Berry, Eduardo Rodriguez

Curveball Dylan Bundy 50/60 Crisp 12-6 offering that has a tight rotation. Lacks command at times, and will leave up in the zone.
Alexander Santana 50/60 11-5 spin and good, sharp tilt. Tight spin and commanded well. Occasionally will leave up in zone but was able to get away with it at Aberdeen.
Hunter Harvey 50/60 79-82 mph with tilt, sharp bite, and good depth. Potential to be a plus pitch, ability to snap into the dirt and still fool batters. Telegraphs the pitch at times, noticeable in his release and the distance he strides on his delivery. Even so, hitters still have trouble making solid contact on it.

Honorable Mention/On the Rise: Tim Berry, Daniel Ayers, Jason Gurka, Branden Kline, Parker Bridwell

Slider Eduardo Rodriguez 50/60 Sharp, biting slider that sits 82-86 mph. Dips hard, has potential for some refinement. Not always a strikeout pitch, but able to get hitters to roll over on it more often than not.
Mike Wright 50/60 Hard, dipping slider with solid tilt. Sits primarily mid-80′s and can miss bats at times.
Kevin Gausman 45/60 Inconsistent at this point, but sharp break and plus bite is evident and a little refinement will go a long way to make this a plus pitch.

Honorable Mention/On the Rise: Stephen Tarpley, Lex Rutledge, Michael BelfioreJacob Bray, Oliver Drake

Command Zach Davies 60/65 Ability to consistently mix and match his arsenal. Ability to throw all four pitches in the zone at all times. High pitchability.
Tyler Wilson 50/60 Plus fastball command, change has good deception which plays up the command. Power curve lags behind both and he will have trouble locating it at times.
Mitch Horacek 50/60 Stuff is not great, so Horacek makes up for it with the ability to locate in the zone. Had practically all of the NYPL chasing his pitches.

Honorable Mention/On the Rise: Kevin Gausman, Eduardo Rodriguez, Steven Brault, Dylan Bundy

Control Dylan Bundy 60/65 Ability to throw all of his pitches for strikes at any given time. Comes from a clean and easy delivery that he is able to consistently repeat.
Zach Davies 50/60 Davies has consistently mentioned that he feels comfortable throwing all four pitches for strikes at any given time. I can attest to this from watching him in 2013.
Mitch Horacek 45/55 Ability to throw his three-pitch arsenal for strikes and keep hitters on their toes.

Honorable Mention/On the Rise: Ashur Tolliver, Trent Howard, Mark Blackmar

Hitting:

Contact Chance Sisco 45/60 Solid-average bat speed, quick hands, good extension. Tore up competition in GCL from all reports, Delmarva will be first true test.
Christian Walker 50/60 Sweet swing, good bat path through the zone. Good extension.
Adrian Marin 50/55 Short, compact swing with a small load. Not much extension but ability to put barrel on the ball. Average bat speed.

Honorable Mention/On the Rise: Josh HartJohnny RuettigerMike Yastrzemski

Eye/ Plate Discipline Michael Ohlman 50/55 Solid-average plate discipline along with an improving approach. Scouts have noted that the decision making at the plate has improved over the past two years.
Johnny Ruettiger 50/55 Advanced approach, good plate awareness, cognizant of the count and game scenario.
Christian Walker 50/55 Solid “college eye”. Adept at laying off junk in the dirt, although will occasionally chase a fastball at the eyes.

Honorable Mention/On the Rise: Wynston Sawyer, Torsten Boss, Trey Mancini

Power Jonathan Schoop 50/60 Lightning quick bat-speed + quick twitch hands allows for plus force in his swing. Powerful thrust, excellent pop off the bat. Swing has a mild tilt to it, allowing for him to drive the ball. Will only grow stronger as he continues to grow into his frame.
Hector Veloz 45/70 Solid-average raw power with potential for plus to plus-plus power. Could be one of the strongest players below Double-A. Thick frame, thick bottom half provides a terrific foundation to generate force in his swing-torque. Also has solid-average bat speed. He has hit the scoreboard in center field at Ripken Stadium (during a game) Could benefit from improved conditioning. Questions whether his poor contact and discipline will ever truly allow him to put his power to use.
Conor Bierfeldt 50/60 Solid-average raw power is most likely, with above-average being a possibility. Displays a solid gap-to-gap stroke to go along with a slight uppercut swing and average bat speed. Frame is indicative for a corner OF.

Honorable Mention/On the Rise: Aaron Baker, Randolph Gassaway, Caleb Joseph, Trey Mancini, Michael Ohlman

Defense:

Defensive Catcher Brian Ward 70 Plus arm and tremendous blocking skills. Pop time consistently 1.79 – 1.82, with best recorded at 1.71. Calls a strong game and has plus footwork.
Austin Wynns 60 Calls a good game, displayed strong footwork behind the plate, above average blocking skills, solid-average arm.
Tanner Murphy 55 Above-average arm strength, strong receiver that has solid footwork. Coming back from a UCL tear, so remains to be seen how his skills were affected.

Honorable Mention/On the Rise: Brett Frantini

Defensive Infielder Adrian Marin 55 Good defender with arm strength, soft hands and moderate range. Still refining footwork but has the ability to stick at shortstop or become a plus defender at second base.
Jonathan Schoop 50 Size and frame are concerns for the future, but average to solid-average across the board right now in terms of hands, range and footwork. Arm is plus. Versatility (2B, 3B, SS) is added plus.
Federico Castagnini 50 Sound defensively. Good, soft hands and glove. Moved off Shortstop already. Plays a solid defense at third base, but profiles better at second base. Solid utility option that can play anywhere in a pinch.

Honorable Mention/On the Rise: Jeff Kemp, Torsten Boss

Defensive Outfielder Josh Hart 65 Plus defensive ability. Plus speed, agility. Makes terrific reads and displays excellent instincts on tracking fly balls. Average arm.
Gregory Lorenzo 60 Above-average arm strength, plus speed, quick bursts. Average reads, but able to adjust due to athleticism.
Glynn Davis 60 Plus to plus-plus speed. Defense is above-average, but needs to take better routes and rely less on speed and athleticism in the outfield.

Honorable Mention/On the Rise: Anthony Vega, Brenden WebbMike Yastrzemski

Orioles Eligible for Rule 5 Draft http://orioles-nation.com/2013/11/08/orioles-eligible-rule-5-draft/ http://orioles-nation.com/2013/11/08/orioles-eligible-rule-5-draft/#comments Fri, 08 Nov 2013 12:30:43 +0000 http://orioles-nation.com/?p=14176 The Rule 5 Draft is approaching: What Orioles are eligible and what are the odds that they are selected?

The post Orioles Eligible for Rule 5 Draft appeared first on Orioles-Nation.

]]>
The Rule 5 Draft is right around the corner, and teams have already started working on their roster shuffle.  Way back in 2012, Don Olsen provided a solid summary of what the Rule 5 Process is:

The basic outline of the plan was intended for players to find additional avenues to reach the majors, when a team limits the chances of a player making the parent club. There are three basic principles that make minor league players subjected to this process.

Major League Phase:

1. The minor league player is left unprotected off the the 40 man roster as of November 20th when the roster has to be submitted to the Major league front office.
2. Left unprotected and 4 years of MilB service at age 19 or older. This is typically JC and 4 year college drafted players.
3. Left unprotected and 5 years of MilB service at age 16-18 years. These are typically international free agents and drafted high school seniors.

Minor League Phase:

In addition to the qualification rules of the major league phase, teams can protect 38 players on their AAA roster and 37 players AA.

All teams do a solid job identifying their best prospects and stash away the top 75 players. Usually, it is pitching that is selected at the AAA and AA phases to help with depth.

With that, let us take a look at some of the Orioles’ players that could potentially be targeted by other clubs in the Rule 5 Draft. It should be noted that the “odds of being selected” listed are just for fun. It is essentially impossible to gauge what teams’ believe is valuable:

(Note: There are many players that are eligible within the system. I only named the ones that I feel have the best chance at being selected)

Michael Ohlman

Michael Ohlman orioles

Ohlman was the best hitter in the O’s minor league system last year, outside of Henry Urrutia. He has missed a lot of time throughout his minor league career, but looks to finally be healthy after an early season shoulder injury. Ohlman is a good athlete but still has work to do behind the plate. He has all the tools to be a good catcher, but needs to improve footwork and blocking, although they have drastically improved in the past year.  Most of this has lagged behind due to simply not being on the field enough. He has above-average arm strength but struggles to make accurate throws; which can be fixed with improved footwork.

The bat has above-average raw power. It is a solid bat with a good approach and plate discipline. Scouts have noted that the decision making at the plate has really improved over the past two years, which has led to his improved hitting performance. He is certainly a better game-caller now than in the past, and pitchers such as Zach Davies have noted how in-sync they are with Ohlman catching.  He has potential to be a major league starting catcher, but will need to improve defensively and will need to show stability in terms of health and performance at the higher levels.

On that note, I think it is possible that a team takes a flier on Ohlman as a bench bat or backup catcher. However, it’s really tough to keep a player like this on the 25-man roster since they are in such an important role. If a team thinks that Ohlman’s bat is that valuable – they could snag him. It is also important to keep in mind that he has not played above A+ ball yet, and AA is really were you truly start to see whether a player has true potential to perform in the MLB. The Orioles should protect Ohlman, but there is a possibility they will not. It’s clear that the defense is a work-in-progress still, but will that be enough of a deterrent? I am not 100% sure.

Odds of being selected: 20%

Jason Gurka

Gurka is a solid athlete, but a smaller framed pitcher. The Orioles have him working on conditioning and he is currently in the Arizona Fall League. He is a bullpen arm all the way and could end up being a potential LOOGY, as he handles lefties extremely well.

His arsenal consists of a 87-92 mph fastball with heavy sink and late tailing action, a 80-83 mph change up with average fade and a 79-82 mph slider with more of a slurve to it. The slider has good bite and the plane he throws on makes the pitch more effective. Overall,  it is the quintessential LOOGY arsenal.

I think Gurka is definitely someone that could be looked at. His ceiling may not be supremely high, but he offers a valuable asset that clubs routinely search for to fill out their bullpen. He is also easy to stash in a LOOGY role. I also do not think the Orioles will protect him, as they already have multiple LOOGY on the 40-man in Mike Belfiore, Chris Jones, Brian Matusz, T.J. McFarland and even Troy Patton. It really depends on whether a team believes the effort of stashing him is worth it.

Odds of being selected: 10%

Oliver Drake

The former Navy alum has already seen time on the Orioles 40-man roster. He was eventually removed and spent a year injured. He returned in 2013 and put together a very strong season in the Baysox bullpen. His fastball sits in the 91-93 mph range while touching 95 mph with sink. It is a good pitch that hasn’t seemed to regress with the injuries. His best pitch is probably a plus slider that sits in 82-85 mph range and really has some good bite on it. There is also some form of a change up, but it’s clearly behind the other two pitches.

Drake is an interesting case. I think he eventually will be in the MLB and might even end up being productive for a long time – barring injuries. If a team thinks he is fully healthy, I would not be surprised if he is selected. He was good enough once to be protected, so that alone should show that there is some value here.

Odds of being selected: 10%

Clayton Schrader

Schrader has long been a favorite of mine. I am a stuff kinda guy. He has some serious stuff. He works with a plus fastball in the 92-95 mph range and a 83-85 mph slider. There’s a lot of effort in his delivery, which puts some extra pressure on his back, neck and arm. He is the definition of a power arsenal, and the stuff can be unhittable at times. However, his command and control fluctuate with each outing. Sometimes he will look absolutely dominant – other times he struggles to throw a strike.

Schrader has hit a road-block at AA Bowie. I’ve seen him plenty of times in the past two years and he is certainly frustrating to watch because you know the stuff is so good. I think there is a small possibility a team could take a flier on Schrader and see if some new voices can help fix his command and control issues. Most likely, he doesn’t get selected because there is still too much to worry about with his game and he is primarily a one inning guy.

Odds of being selected: 5%

Tim Berry

Berry has taken a long road to success, but he may finally be at a corner to take the turn. He has slowly risen up through the system, and has not garnered much buzz until this past season. His arsenal consists of a sneaky Tim Berryfastball that hovers around 90-92 mph, an improved change up around 82 mph and a good curveball with a sharp spin that comes in around 75 mph. At this point last season, Berry still was refining his change up and his command was wavering. Both have improved in 2013 to the point where he is giving the Orioles a tough decision.

I think Berry needs to see time at AA to work on the above mentioned areas. His command is borderline fringe at this point and it could be exposed at higher levels. However, he has really improved his game and there is definitely value in a lefty with a good hook and a decent fastball that has some life to it. I doubt he is selected but a team could view him as a guy to stash and give mop-up duty to while he continues to refine his game.

Odds of being selected: 10%

Eddie Gamboa

Eddie Gamboa was one of the best stories in 2013. He went from being pure organization filler to an asset on the rise. It was all about the addition of the knuckleball. Let’s be honest, we do not have much experience watching knuckleballers pitch – so his season may be impressive simply because of the innovative twist. Gamboa actually throws two variants of the knuckle – 65-69 mph and 75-80 mph. Both have good movement and improved as the year went on. The great thing about Gamboa is that he still works with his 90 mph fastball, a decent curve and an average change up. None of those pitches are standouts or really anything more than fringe – but it doesn’t matter when they become secondary offerings to the knuckleball.

Gamboa is a really interesting case. I think he is the exact type of player I would target in the Rule 5 if I was running a club. He is unique and also has suddenly improved drastically. I think a club could find a spot in the bullpen for him where he can play mop up duty and continue to harness his knuckleball. I am not sure how he correlates to the MLB though, as the knuckleball is such an unknown area.

Odds of being selected: 15%

Caleb Joseph

He has essentially cemented his role in the Baysox hall of fame, but Joseph has piqued the interest of some after a terrific 2013 season. It is important to note that he has really played a long time at the AA level, and he is no spring chicken at this stage of his minor league career. However, there has been serious buzz within baseball about whether he deserves a shot to prove his worth at the next level. I think most of that buzz has primarily come from the media.

Joseph is a decent bat. He has calmed the swing down from years past and the plate approach has improved. I am not sure how much of that is from extended periods of time in AA. If a team thinks the bat has potential to play at the MLB level, they could look to take him as a backup C/LF/1B option off the bench. I do not think Joseph sticks as a catcher in the MLB though. The footwork is just not there, and it affects some other aspects of his game like throwing. He is not below-average behind the plate, but not on the level that a team needs as a backup catcher. He does call a good game though. I think it is unlikely he is selected, but a NL team could view him as a decent guy off the bench.

Odds of being selected: 5%

Life down on the farm is tough. If you don’t consistently perform at a high level, you can expect a demotion. If another player within the system gets a promotion and you’re currently in a slump, you could get a demotion.

Nothing is set in stone when it comes to Minor League Baseball, which could make for a rough summer for some players.

Perhaps that’s why it’s impressive when players stick around and consistently play great baseball on a day-to-day basis.

Baltimore’s Double-A affiliate, the Bowie Baysox, finished the 2013 season at .500 (71-71), narrowly missing out on the Eastern League playoffs. But there were still plenty of bright spots on Manager Gary Kendall’s squad throughout the spring and summer.

I’ve compiled a list of the top five Bowie Baysox from the past season, and based my selections off a variety of different factors. Longevity, consistency and, of course, there has to be top-notch productiveness coming from that player. You could even say a few of these players showed pure dominance while on the baseball diamond.

Caleb Joseph, C: .299 BA/.346 OBP, 22 HRs, 97 RBI, 4 SB in 135 gamesCaleb Joseph

Normally at the catcher position all you’re really getting is defense and the ability to manage the pitchers. And maybe throwing out a couple of potential base-runners. But the ‘Sox got a little bonus from Joseph in his 135 games. Joseph flirted with .300 for most of the season (ended the season at .299) and led Bowie in runs batted in, with 97. Add in his power surge of 22 homers, one behind the team leader Brandon Waring, and you have your most successful hitter all season long.

Joseph, 27, wasn’t their strongest defensive catcher, but he’s very versatile. He played just 64 of his 135 games behind the plate, and split the rest of his 71 games between first base (12), left field (16) and designated hitter (44).

Kyle Hudson, OF: .292 BA/.386 OBP, 0 HRs, 33 RBI, 26 SB in 103 games

Selected in the fourth round of the 2008 Amateur Draft by the O’s, Hudson has been a long-time journeyman at the age of 26. He’s jumped from organization to organization––switching between the Rays and Phillies all last season––before returning to Baltimore prior to this season. This summer was a bounce-back year for Hudson, as he had to re-adjust to the Double-A level after spending stints in Triple-A.

His last stint in Bowie, 28 games back in 2011, was the only time Hudson had hit .300+ in his six-year minor league career. Though he failed to hit .300 for Bowie this time around, he consistently got on base for the ‘Sox and scored the second-most runs on the team (66), just eight behind Joseph, who played 32 games more than Hudson. His speed on the base-paths was a huge boost, too, of course.

Henry Urrutia, OF: .365 BA/.433 OBP, 7 HRs, 37 RBI, 1 SB in 52 games

Henry Urrutia

Spending 24 games in the big leagues during the second half of the season, the 26-year old Cuban rookie started out in Bowie in April where he played 52 games. At the end of June he was sent up to Triple-A Norfolk, playing 15 games there before being promoted to Baltimore for the first of two times. So his time in Double-A was limited, but boy was he productive at the plate during his stint in Bowie. Urrutia was a hitting-machine, tallying 73 in his 200 at bats (good enough for a .365 average), and slapping down 16 doubles. Playing 49 games in the outfield, Urrutia didn’t commit a single error and earned himself a quick promotion.

 

Oliver Drake, RP: 3-0 record, 1.74 ERA, 38 Ks, 8 Saves in 19 appearances

Drake, a Naval Academy product, started three games for Bowie in 2012 before undergoing shoulder surgery in August ’12. The 26-year old prospect appears to have recovered well from the surgery, as he made the move from the rotation to the bullpen for the ‘Sox in 2013. Prior to the surgery, Drake had made three very productive starts (in May 2012), and had a 1.50 ERA in 18.0 innings pitched. After undergoing an intense off-season workout, Drake entered the 2013 season poised to bounce back.

And that’s exactly what he did. As a reliever, Drake made 19 appearances, he finished the game in 13 of those appearances. As a part-time reliever, he recorded eight saves and struck-out 38 batters over 31.0 innings pitched. Given his backstory heading into the season, this could be one of the more interesting story lines surrounding the 2013 Baysox.

Mike Wright, SP: 11-3 record, 3.26 ERA, 136 Ks in 26 starts

Mike Wright

Throughout the season, 10 different pitchers made single-digit starts for the Baysox. Mike Wright may have been the lone mainstay in the ‘Sox rotation, having made 26 starts and posting a team-high (among pitchers with at least 10 starts) 3.26 earned run average. He made a solid adjustment from his rough 2012 outing in Bowie, and his performance this past season should get the 23-year old an opening day rotation spot with Triple-A Norfolk.

Honorable Mentions: Buck Britton, Xavier Avery, Niuman Romero, Eddie Gamboa, Kevin Gausman

Leaving power-hitting Brandon Waring off the list may come as a shock to some, but I don’t feel that his all-or-nothing approach at the plate was enough to warrant a spot on the team’s Top 5 list. Waring led the team in homers, with 23, and was named by MiLB as the top third baseman in Baltimore’s farm system this past season. But I don’t feel as though his atrocious .213 average and team-high 129 whiffs looks good. Especially when you compare him to the other hitters on the list.

Given that Waring is a career .254 hitter, hitting for contact has never been his strong point in his game. But if he can start putting the bat on the ball a little more often starting in 2014, perhaps he could make the list down the road and help lead the ‘Sox back to the Eastern League playoffs.
