The post Aberdeen Ironbirds 2014 Season Preview appeared first on Orioles-Nation.

]]>
2013 was a terrific season for Aberdeen, as they made the playoffs for the first time in their existence. In the past, the Ironbirds have fielded poor teams, with the occasional talent to get excited about. Unless there was a Parker Bridwell, Manny Machado or Matt Wieters, you probably did not miss much at Aberdeen. However, last year was impressive and the team had a good crop of talent, starting first with Hunter Harvey. While the club does not have pure talent such as Harvey this year, they do have a few intriguing names on their break camp roster. Please keep in mind that this roster will significantly change in the next week or two, as players just signing from the MLB Draft will enter the system and be slotted at Aberdeen. It is also important to remember there are still a few young prospects in the GCL that will surely make the move to Aberdeen. Short season rosters change more than any other roster, and it can become difficult keeping up with all the alterations.

Aberdeen officially begins their season on Friday, June 13th, on the road at Hudson Valley. Their first home game will be Friday, June 20, against Staten Island.

Pitching Staff: Augey Bill, Garrett Cortright, Nick Cunningham, Eric Green, Alex Santana, Janser SeverinoStephen Tarpley, Brady Adamek, Derrick Bleeker, Stefan Crichton, Dariel Delgado, Dioni Dominguez, Ivan Hernandez, Nik Nowottnick, Elias Pinales
Catchers: Alex Murphy, Tanner Murphy
Infielders: Ronarsy Ledesma, Byron Capellan, Cam Kneeland, Cory Segui
Outfielders: Manuel Hernandez, Oswill Lartiguez, Andrickson Zorilla

Injured but may have seen time here: Travis Seabrooke, Jacob Bray
On Rehab: Dylan Bundy
Could see time here: Daniel Ayers, Kevin Grendell, Jake Pintar

Three to Watch:

Stephen Tarpley: If you have wondered where the 2013 3rd round pick has been, look no further. Tarpley was known to be a project when drafted, but I thought we would have seen him at Delmarva to start the year. Obviously, the OriolesTarpley2 held him back in extended and continued to work on his mechanics. Tarpley had some issues with his landing on delivery and also had a little too much stress in his elbow and shoulder. It will also be interesting to see if the Orioles have lowered his release at all. I have had scouts tell me in the past they believe his upright delivery causes his fastball to be flat and get hit around up in the zone. Tarpley is an intriguing talent with a good arm capable of throwing 92-94. His arm speed is solid and he is an athletic player. It would not shock me to see him tear up the NYPL, but he needs to show improved mechanics before that happens.

Jonah Heim: Sure, he is not even on the break camp roster, but he is already in Aberdeen and I have been told he will likely split time with Alex Murphy behind the dish. Heim is a super raw prospect with the bat, but he has some bat speed Heim 3and raw power. It may take some time for him to tap into this power, and the plate discipline and approach will need some refinement. He will be one of the youngest guys in the NYPL, and was one of the youngest in the draft last year. Another aspect to note is the competition level at the Buffalo, New York area is a notch lower than your typical region. Heim needs some time to get acclimated, and the more I think about it, keeping him in extended and short-season was definitely the right move. The defense has been impressive. I have talked to scouts about the glove and they were generally impressed. I liked what I saw in Spring Training.

Alex Murphy: The Calvert Hall alum has the ability to develop into a decent bat. I see raw power and he has a decent approach at the plate. Murphy has enough talent with the bat that it could carry him through the beginning parts of the Alex Murphysystem. The one issue with his game has always been the defense. Scouts were split on whether he could stick as a catcher last season, and I have not heard anything to change that opinion yet. He could end up requiring a move to first base, which would then mean he would have to really hit. As with most young prospects in the NYPL, the skill-set is incomplete, but Murphy has enough going on with the bat to be intrigued.

Three Sleepers:

Alexander Santana: A personal favorite of mine, as he has a plus curveball that he can command and control. It has good depth and he really loves to throw it. ThereAlexander Santana might not be much more to his game, but the fastball can show some life and explosion, even if the plane is not terrific. Santana is an example of a pitcher with one really good pitch and the rest is fringe. However, I am curious to see what the Orioles do with him. I doubt he can start, due to the exertion in the delivery.

Dariel Delgado: I do not have much info on the young righty, but I do know that he has an electric arm that can sit 92+ mph. The secondary Dariel Delgadostuff needs some work, but the Orioles were patient with him last season and he put up some sexy numbers in the GCL last year. He is likely a max-effort reliever, but he could be dominant at Aberdeen this season.

Randolph Gassaway: Another player that is not actually on the roster yet. However, Gassaway was the most impressive player I saw in the GCL/Rookie camp this Spring Training. The bat speed was evident and he really has a Randolph Gassawaysmooth and relaxed swing with minimal movement through the zone. There is a slight arc and he certainly has some raw power that could eventually be tapped into. I need to get an expanded look at Gassaway, but the first image of him was very impressive for me. I suspect he sees some time in Aberdeen this year, and I would be very surprised if this is not the case.

Frederick Keys 2014 Season Preview
Bowie Baysox 2014 Season Preview

The Delmarva Shorebirds are set to begin the 2014 season with arguably the best roster in the O’s Minor League System. The Orioles have their first three selections from the 2013 draft down on the Eastern Shore, along with a talented cast around them. Below is the opening day roster (thanks to Steve Melewski of MASN) along with three to watch and three potential sleepers.

Rotation: Steven Brault, Hunter Harvey, Mitch Horacek, Sebastian Vader, Austin Urban
Bullpen: Jon Keller, Williams Louico, Bennett Parry, Dylan Rheault, David Richardson, Dennis Torres, Luc Rennie, Jimmy Yacabonis.
Catchers: Chance Sisco, Austin Wynns.
Infielders: Anthony Caronia, Federico Castagnini, Drew Dosch, Jeff Kemp, Trey Mancini, Hector Veloz.
Outfielders: Conor Bierfeldt, Josh Hart, Lucas Herbst, Gregory Lorenzo, Mike Yastrzemski.

Three to Watch:

Hunter Harvey was the best starting pitcher I saw in the NYPL for the 2013 season.

Hunter Harvey was the best starting pitcher I saw in the NYPL for the 2013 season.

Hunter Harvey – RHP – Three-piece arsenal, already  touching 93-96 mph in Aberdeen last year and has been hitting 97-98 mph in Spring Training. He could be one of the premiere minor league talents in baseball by the end of the season.
Chance Sisco – C – Sisco can hit. The approach is advanced for a high-school draftee, and he has a beautiful swing as I laid out in my report over at Baseball Prospectus. Can the defense come along quick enough?
Josh Hart – OFPlus defender with terrific instincts in CF. Potential plus contact hitter with ability to be an on-base machine. Hart could be the spark plug the O’s are waiting for, but he is raw with the bat still and this is his first test.

Three Sleepers:

Jon Keller – RHP – Big-framed college pitcher drafted in 2013 that has missed some time due to injury. He will pitch every three days out of the bullpen with the hopes of moving back to a starting role in 2014. He has a big-time fastball but needs refinement of the secondary arsenal. Expect to see Keller eased in this season, but he could be tremendous out of the bullpen.
Drew Dosch – 3B – Dosch did not play after signing with the Orioles in 2013. He has a terrific eye at the plate and some dormant power. The defense might need some work, but he is no dud at the hot corner. He could really surprise this season, but it should be noted that he might need to become acclimated to pro ball.
Mike Yastrzemski – OF – Average tool set across the board, but just does “something” every night to pique your interest. The grandson of the great Yaz could have another solid season in the O’s minors and start to rise his prospect status.

 

The Shorebirds will be fun to watch this season, with a strong opening day roster and some terrific arms. The rotation should be relatively strong, with potential additions of Stephen Tarpley, Kevin Grendell, Jake Pintar and others possibly later on in the season. If there is one team to get out and watch this season, it should be the Shorebirds.

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.

Courtesy: MLB.com

Courtesy: MLB.com

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)

This piece was written by Ben Heck and Tucker Blair

We often forget about the struggles of the minor league ballplayer. While they do get to play a game for their job, there are still many difficulties and hardships involved. Baseball is easily one of the toughest sports in the world, and many things can go wrong before a player ever sees the light of the majors. Some players struggle to make it out of rookie league. The game of baseball is that tough. But it is not just the competition that is tough – There are countless factors that are forced onto a player at such a young age.

Most people ages 17-19 are sneaking out of their house and attending a late-night rager. While they could certainly do that with baseball as a profession, they probably will not last very long in the baseball industry. Professional athletes need to grow up quick, especially considering how many eyes they have on them at all times. Eyes that are evaluating – just like every other profession.

While it varies with each team and individual, most first-year players in the GCL are making roughly $350-500 a paycheck. Each league (A, AA, AAA, etc) has a set contract with MLB for a minimum and maximum wage applicable for players. Obviously, the GCL (and AZL) is the lowest on the chain in terms of rookie leagues where recently drafted players first join. Players will also receive an increase in salary based off service years – similar to other tiered systems. There are some stipulations involved with international players, and they have a separate pay-scale, albeit not too far off from the other. Finally, clubs also give each player a daily stipend around $25. This is essentially food money.

Even though the money is above minimum wage (barely), it is not all sunshine and rainbows like some think. Unless a player received a large bonus, they are often taking a large gamble heading to professional ball instead of college. Fortunately, some teams will provide funding for school in the off-season or in their future endeavors. But not always and not for everyone. There are still many cases where a player is choosing baseball as their current life-path over everything. They love the game that much. And consider the international players that are signing for next to nothing.

Adding along to growing up quickly, and learning how to manage money for (usually) the first time, there is still heavy competition. Orioles Nation was lucky enough to talk with Jake Pintar and Adrian Marin about their experiences in the GCL.

Jake Pintar

Jake Pintar

Pintar, 19, is entering his third season within the Baltimore Orioles organization. From San Juan Hill High School in Cota de Coza, California, Pintar was selected by the Orioles in the 29th round of the 2012 MLB June Amateur Draft.

The 6’7” right handed pitcher spent the previous two seasons in the GCL, recording a 2-2 record and 3.08 ERA over 26 appearances. His numbers saw an increase from 2012 to his 2013 campaign, which included a slightly heavier workload for the young hurler.

Marin, also 19 years old and entering his third season in the organization, was selected in the 3rd round of the 2012 MLB June Amateur Draft out of Gulliver Prep (Miami, FL).

Adrian Marin

Adrian Marin

The 6’0”/165-pound shortstop spent a majority of his 2012 season in the Gulf Coast League (47 games) before ending the campaign with six games at Low-A Delmarva. Though Marin spent his entire 2013 season at Delmarva (108 games, .265 BA, 4 HR, 48 RBI, 11 SB at SS) he saw his fair share of ball-games at the GCL level.

Both Pintar and Marin have taken time out of prepping for the 2014 season to answer a few of our questions regarding their playing experience in the Gulf Coast League.

Orioles-Nation: Life in the GCL is an eye-opening experience. For many, it is the first time in their life they are living away from their home, often on their own or with a roommate. How was this experience for you? Was it difficult making the transition from a High School student to a professional athlete?

Adrian Marin: Yes, at first it was different. The ground balls came harder, the players ran faster, and the pitches were a lot better. However, once I played my first few games, I was able to quickly transition to the new type of play. It was also nice to be living so close to home because my parents were able to see me play and the weather is as nice as it is back home.

Jake Pintar: The transition from a high school student to a professional athlete has been everything I had hoped and more. As soon as I arrived to the GCL after being drafted, right away I knew that this experience with the Orioles was going to be a great one. I’ve always been a hard worker so I carried over my competitive mentality, my drive to succeed and great work ethic with me. This helped make my transition easier.

ON: What’s a typical day in the GCL like? I can imagine it’s all pretty jam-packed from the minute you wake up, but do you get any time to yourself throughout the day?

Adrian: A day in the GCL starts off with a 6:30 am wake up. Upon arriving to the field, we ate breakfast, geared up, and hit the field around 8 am. At this time we would stretch, throw, defensive drills, and finish with live BP around 12 pm. We then had an hour to eat lunch and prepare for the game. We would play from 1 to about 4 pm. After our post game routines, we would eat dinner at the complex and head back to the hotel to sleep and repeat it all again. While at the hotel after a long day, a nap was ideal, but we would often play video games and ping pong to keep our mind off baseball for a bit.

Jake: A typical day for me is waking up early in the morning and getting ready to go to the complex. It starts with reading the board and finding out what I have scheduled for the day then I head over to the cafeteria and eat breakfast. Afterwards, I get ready to stretch, play catch and then, I get ready for the game. When I’m playing baseball I focus on what I need to do and get it done. After baseball I take time to rest and get ready for the next day.

ON: One aspect of professional baseball that some do not understand is the heightened level of difficulty. Can you explain to us how big the jump from High School to the GCL really is?

Adrian: I remember my first game I was hit a hard ground ball, I took my time fielding it and setting my feet to throw, however as I looked up to throw I noticed the guy was almost at first already. I hurried my throw, but he was safe already. This was an eye opening experience for me, because after that moment I realized just how much faster professional ball really is compared to high school and never made that mistake again. Hitting wise, the pitchers threw a lot harder, so I had to get ready and react sooner and quicker. The breaking balls moved a lot more and were difficult to hit at first, however with practice and coaching, I was able to adjust.

Jake: The difficulty that I experienced in the GCL is that I am now playing with some of the most talented and competitive players from all over the world. In high school I was a thrower. I could throw fastballs by hitters, but in the GCL I had to learn how to be a pitcher and throw all my pitches and locate them to get batters out.

ON: I assume a lot of time is spent on the road traveling to games around Florida, and visiting different clubhouses. What do you and your teammates do to pass the time while traveling?

Adrian: We were fortunate enough to have our longest trip be about and hour and forty-five minutes to Fort Myers. While on our bus trips, we would either sleep or just listening to music and play different games on our ipads.

Jake: While traveling my teammates and I will pass the time by listening to music, and getting mentally prepared for the game.

ON: Another thing that I feel may be tough is the fact that everyone on your team, and every opposing player all have one goal: to make it to the major leagues. Does that make it tough to bond with teammates, and become close friends with the guys you’re playing with?

Adrian: No, we are competitive, but uplifting. At the end of the day, we are a team and need to support each other regardless of the circumstances and focus on winning games.

Jake: We all have a common goal and that is to make it to the major leagues. However, I have made some of my best friends on the GCL Orioles team. We support and encourage each other. During the season we all have one common goal and that is to win.

ON: What’s the biggest piece of information that you learned and took away from your experience at GCL? And do you feel it has helped prepare you for Spring Training this year?

Adrian: It is an everyday grind out there and you have to learn to maintain your health and focus throughout the whole season. It has prepared me for spring training, because having experienced one before, I realize that it is the starting block for a successful season. The work and focus you put into spring training will translate to your play during the season.

Jake: One of the biggest pieces of information that I have learned and that I will never forget is that anything is possible, if you really want it. It has helped me to stay motivated and determined. I feel I am better prepared both mentally and physically for this year’s Spring Training.

I was at yesterday’s GCL Orioles game and will likely be there tomorrow night once again. The Orioles defeated the GCL Twins 6-4. Here are some notes from the game…

Arian Marin

Adrian Marin was extremely impressive once again.

Adrian Marin was extremely impressive once again. He beat out a routine infield ground ball for a base hit and his home to first time on the play was 4.2 seconds, which is 60 speed on the 20-80 scouting scale.

Manuel Hernandez showed some bat speed today when he lined a fastball through the gap and into left field. He has some quick hands, too.

Jalen Simmons struggled at the plate today, but displayed some above-average speed and solid arm strength when he doubled up a guy off first. A spoke with a scout who graded his arm strength as above-average and said he has some solid bat speed.

Alexander Santana made the start for the Orioles and worked with an 86-88 mph fastball, slider and changeup. The slider is his primary secondary pitch but he mixed in a few very good changeups.

The box score is actually incorrect, as Duke Porter followed Santana. He worked with an 85-87 mph fastball and a curveball.

Jake Pintar followed Porter and allowed an inherited runner to score. He threw some above-average curveballs in the 68-71 mph range. His fastball was fairly straight and sat 88-90 mph, but he has a lot of projection.

]]>
Scouting Report (via Don):

  • very long frame and loose arm
  • very projectable body
  • good release that leaves a tough angle on the fastball
  • was 89-90 mph last I saw and was told he hit 92 mph this spring
  • nice spin and depth on a 11/7 curve ball that can tighten up down the road
  • needs to refine a few things mechanically, command and control will improve with maturation
