Welcome to 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.

Have Michael Ohlman and David Freitas hit a wall at AA?
Frietas is a non-prospect for me. I do not see anything impact. fringe to average tools across the board.
Ohlman is dealing with the wall. His bat is not this bad, but he has failed to make adjustments as quickly at AA. I just watched him hit BP this weekend. The swing is no different than last year, still showing a clean path and minimal noise. His bat speed might only be average, but the ball just is not falling in during games. He hits a lot of ground balls directly to the second basemen or shortstop. I don’t think Ohlman is an impact prospect, but I think the bat is better than currently displaying.

– Tucker Blair

With Delmon Young, Nelson Cruz, and Nick Markakis impending free agents, could Steve Pearce go into 2015 Spring Training with a starting job at one of the corner outfield positions?
Steve Pearce has been great to date this season and I wrote up him up here. He has changed his stance to fully maximize his swing. However, he has been struggling of late putting up some ugly at bats. The league is adjusting to Pearce and he will have to adjust back to be a successful major league player. Going into 2015, as you say the Orioles are losing two corner outfielders to free agency and with Pearce having one more arbitration year left, he is definitely the current favorite in the organization. There are also minor league players such as Dariel Alvarez and Henry Urrutia that could also possibly fight for a major league spot. The last two months of the season are going to reveal a lot about Steve Pearce and whether or not he is best suited to being a bench/platoon bat or handed a full time starting job. I do not feel certain either way about it, but it is not very often that 30 year old players find the talent to transform into starters.

– Alex Conway

Wynston Sawyer took a big step back offensively in his first year with Frederick, and his playing time figures to be usurped by Chance Sisco and Austin Wynns next season. Is his time as an Oriole farmhand coming to an end? At least as a starter?
Unfortunately, I think so. Sawyer has some underlying skills, with average raw power and he calls a good game. The footwork behind the plate really never improved to the level I hoped. With no real progression now in his time with Frederick, Wynns and Sisco are breathing down his neck and are better prospects at this time. Wynns is underrated; that guy can play defense. Sisco is obviously the better prospect in the long-term, but he is someone that will obviously get the first crack at Frederick. I don’t envision them moving him to Bowie, as Ohlman likely plays another season there next year.

– Tucker Blair

Is the rumor true that if Hector Veloz goes back to Aberdeen for the fourth season next year, he will be eligible for a seat on Aberdeen’s town council? #VOTEHECTOR2016
#TeamHector
Hector has poor plate discipline and the hit tool is poor, but four years in Aberdeen is brutal. Hopefully he is with Delmarva all year next season.

– Tucker Blair

Who is better going forward? Darren O’Day or Zach Britton?
First, as most know, they have both been fantastic and are a lethal one two combo out of the bullpen. Going forward this season though I’ll take O’Day by a hair. They both have their faults but O’Day’s abilities to get strikeouts and keep the ball in the ball park are both critical talents for a reliever. Britton has both of those tools, but he has already shown that when he gets tired he can leave his sinker up and then it comes down to measuring how far the ball went. I’ll take O’Day, but both have been great and have not shown any signs of slowing down.

– Aex Conway

What the heck happened to Jimmy Yacabonis when he went to Frederick? I realize there is a talent jump but you go from basically being unhittable and impossible to score on to just throwing batting practice for the other team. I know he has some control issues, but it seems like he left his talent in Delmarva when he was packing his suitcase for Frederick.
Baseballing is hard! Seriously though, the jump from Low-A to High-A is a bastard. Yacabonis is just facing better talent and the ball flies in Harry Grove Stadium. Command issues in Delmarva do not get nearly as exposed like they do in Frederick. Yacabonis will be fine, and I think he will settle down and put up results at Frederick. However, that first initial jump to a level can be a terrifying experience.

– Tucker Blair

Carlos Villanueva was a very solid swing-man from 2011-2013. This year, he’s sporting a 5.98 ERA, thanks to a .368 BABIP/12.3 hits per 9. His peripherals suggest this is his best season of his career (3.58 FIP, 0.9 HR/9, 3.00 K/BB). Could he be a buy-low trade target for the Orioles, as a starter or reliever?
I like him as a solid buy-low guy as you say. He has been bad this year, but that is probably due to some bad luck. I would not expect much because he has also given up a nearly 23% line drive rate which is very high so he is getting barreled pretty consistently which many peripheral statistics fail to show. However, he is getting batters to swing about 3% more on his pitches in and out of the zone, but hitters are making about 3% more contact, so he isn’t missing more bats than he normally does. I would not expect much from him, but he could a bullpen arm/spot starter that can possibly give the Orioles solid value down the stretch and they would have to give up next to nothing for him.

– Alex Conway

Welcome to 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.

I’ve noticed Hector Veloz is back with Aberdeen for I believe his third season, I’m somewhat disappointed. What gives?
Hector has certainly seen his time at Aberdeen. While I probably would not agree with his placement in the NYPL for a third season, I completely understand it. I go back to my report written over on Baseball Prospectus. Nothing has changed, and the hit tool is still a huge detriment on his game. I have seen him three times now, and he has been fooled heavily by sliders and curveballs. The raw power is plus-plus, and when he hits the ball it goes far. However, he just does not hit the ball enough and it really won’t matter whether he plays at Aberdeen or Delmarva until he makes some adjustments. I will say this, the defense has definitely improved since last year, both at first and third base.

– Tucker Blair

Aberdeen is 1-15. Is this the worst team in baseball?
Yes, they are. The record tells us a lot. However, they do not have much talent anyways. After seeing the team for a week, the college class is not impressive unlike last season where they had Mike Yastrzemski and company. I would personally write most of the draft class as organization players. However, there are definitely intriguing players on the team, such as recently added Nigel Nootbaar and Tanner Chleborad.  Alex Murphy and Jonah Heim are prospects as well. In reality, the only thing I care about is the development of these prospects. If Aberdeen does not win another game all year, it would be fine as long as these prospects developed.

– Tucker Blair

Heim or Murphy? Who is better
Murphy is the more advanced prospect, with better tools at this current time. However, Heim is the prospect with the most projection and growth left. Heim is the superior defensive catcher, and I registered a 1.90 pop time on him this weekend. That’s a plus arm. Murphy is hitting well, but I have seen him exposed at times on sliders. Both are good prospects, but give me Heim right now until I see more. Here is some video on Murphy:

– Tucker Blair

Over the last 30 days, the O’s are 24th in innings pitched by the rotation. However, over the last two weeks they have jumped up to 11th overall in innings pitched. Do you think this is a trend that will stick? Or are we just seeing a good stretch from an inconsistent bunch?
It certainly has been a solid stretch of success for the Orioles starters over the past 2-3 weeks. The bullpen is not getting taxed as much and the pitching staff has stabilized a bit. This is an unusually good run of success that I would not expect to continue for the rest of the season. However, Bud Norris and Wei-Yin Chen are better pitchers than they were last year and that is certainly fueling the recent successes from the pitching staff. On top of that Kevin Gausman has looked fantastic and has been able to put up some decent innings. If Tillman and Jimenez can find some consistency, the rotation could end up being solid. Yet, that may be too much to ask from either of them at this point.

– Alex Conway
