I typically try  to stay away from making bold predictions or speculative claims (except that Chris Tillman thing, guess that shoulder is fine). I do not particularly like trade speculation articles because the players and teams involved never seem to be correct or really be helpful in any discussion. Teams value players differently than fans and assessing deals after the fact brings more value to the conversation. I usually do not enjoy prediction articles as well because baseball can be so hard to predict and predictions—most of the time—seem so worthless after the fact. With all that being said, here are some random predictions and outlandish speculations about the Orioles in the (nominal) second half.

Chris Davis will end the season with 30 or more home runs

He currently sits at 15 home runs and the orioles have 68 games left to play, so he does have to pick the pace to reach 30 home runs. However, Davis looked much better going into the all star break. There were at least three occasions in which he hit the ball in the air to the opposite field including one sacrifice fly and one home run in the rain shortened win against the Yankees. This is the key for Davis moving forward. He has prodigious power, but his ability to lift and pull the ball lacks severely. He rushes his top half and either swings and misses or tops off a ball on the ground to the right side into the shift. The last week or so going into the break he started clearing his hips earlier, dragging the bat behind him, and lifting the ball in the air to left field where his power is unreal. His brute strength and massive leverage allow him to push fly balls over the short left porch in Camden Yards. Therefore, I believe Chris Davis is going to finish with 30 or more home runs. (Expect the batting average to come up as well, even with the shift issues)

Adam Jones will finish with a .300 BA, 200 hits, and 30 home runs, he will also receive MVP Votes.

Adam Jones has been great and is easily on pace to put up the most productive season of his career. A little secret about Jones to date this season, he is seeing 3.70 pitches per plate appearance which would be his highest rate since 2009. Since June 1st he has been walking slightly higher than his season to date number (3.5 % compared to 2.7%, which is still abysmally low) however he has only been striking out 12.3% of the time since June 1st. He is making better contact, taking more pitches, and adapting his style of game to be more productive. He is already on pace for 30 home runs and 200 hits so he will have to keep up his exact pace in the second half. Also, if the Orioles win the AL East, he will easily receive top 5 AL MVP votes (He currently has the 6th best fWAR in the AL, by the way). If the Orioles fall out of the race, he still has a chance to receive some top 10 votes, he has been that good.  That would be four straight All Star Games, including two consecutive years starting, and three straight seasons receiving MVP votes. But he swings a lot and doesn’t walk so I guess he’s not any good….

Nelson Cruz will not reach 40 home runs

Nelson Cruz is good and he has been great for the Orioles thus far. However, I see him slowing down, even though he has yet to truly take advantage of Camden Yards short left porch hitting more home runs on the road than at home. He is way above his career HR/FB rate and I expect him to slow down post All Star break. He is walking more and striking out less than he has in his last couple of seasons, so I would not say the overall production is going to drop significantly, but the home run rate will.

The Orioles will not trade for a second baseman

Dan Duquette and Buck Showalter have had all season to remedy their atrocious offensive output at second base. Jemile Weeks, Ivan De Jesus Jr. and even Steve Lombardozzi have all put up numbers at AAA that would warrant a possible move from within to at the very least attempt to improve the production from second base. However, they have yet to take advantage of that internal depth. This leads me to believe that the defense provided by Schoop and Flaherty make the front office content to stick with them and hope one steals the job from the other. Both of their defensive skills are impressive and above average to me, however, I hate the complacency that Buck and Duquette have shown in their offensive output. The only move that I believe will be made for the offense is going to be acquiring a left handed bench bat.

The Orioles will trade for a starting pitcher

The starting rotation is crowded, but it is not crowded with quality. Kevin Gausman stands out among the rest, he has been and will be the best starting pitcher for the Orioles going into the second half. He has the best stuff and is learning more and more about how to finish at bats and get big league hitters out. Tillman and Jimenez figure to stay in the rotation as well, for stature and salary reasons, even if they try to hide Ubaldo (who I think will be critical part to any second half success the team has) on the DL. That leaves Norris, Gonzalez, and Chen. One could be put in the bullpen and one could be traded. I think this makes the most sense. I think Norris should probably stay, even if he is not terribly good, he has been the most consistent to date. Chen and Gonzalez both tend to struggle late in games and lose their command and stuff after about 75 to 80 pitches. One would move to the bullpen and the other would be included in a trade for either another starter along with prospects or for a left handed bench bat. I do not think any pitcher acquired will be a top of the line starter, but will add some stability to the rotation.

The Orioles will win the AL East

The Orioles are four games up on the Blue Jays and five games on the Yankees with 68 games left to play. I think that 88 wins will win the division and the Orioles have to go a mere 36-33 to finish with 88 (I predicted 88 to in my season preview…okay I guess I do like predictions sometimes). The rest of the teams in the division have less games left on their schedule and would have to go on some serious runs to get to 88 wins. Much has been made about the Orioles second half schedule and it starts off brutally with a 10 game west coast road trip, 26 consecutive against teams at or above .500, including 16 straight against the vaunted AL West. However, after that, the schedule lightens up considerably with 23 of the next 26 against teams at or below .500 currently. The only series with a winning team in that stretch is against the Reds at home. After that it is seven against the Yankees, six against the Blue Jays, and three against the Red Sox. If the Orioles can weather the storm admirably in the first 26 games to start the second half, say 13-13 or even 11-15, they have the time and the weak schedule to make up some wins. My prediction is the Orioles will be raising another banner at Camden Yards next year, I just hope its better than AL East champs.

The Baltimore Orioles lack the pieces to acquire top-tier talent in a trade. http://orioles-nation.com/2014/07/01/baltimore-orioles-lack-pieces-acquire-top-tier-talent-trade/ http://orioles-nation.com/2014/07/01/baltimore-orioles-lack-pieces-acquire-top-tier-talent-trade/#comments Tue, 01 Jul 2014 09:00:48 +0000 http://orioles-nation.com/?p=15033 The Baltimore Orioles will need to make some moves to strengthen the team for a playoff run. The problem is that they lack the top-tier prospects to acquire the big fish. What type of players do they have the pieces to trade for?

The post The Baltimore Orioles lack the pieces to acquire top-tier talent in a trade. appeared first on Orioles-Nation.

The activity leading up to and through this year’s trade deadline could be the most interesting we will witness in several years, at least in terms of the speculation as a result of a few surprise teams possibly being on the selling end of things. For the Baltimore Orioles, the needs are obvious – a second baseman and a starting pitcher.

Prospects are the money in baseball and that’s the one thing the Orioles organization still doesn’t have quite enough of, at least the prospects that are worth the most and they can reasonably part with. Players like Kevin Gausman, Dylan Bundy and Hunter Harvey are likely not being traded, period. What ammunition that leaves the front office with beyond them is limited to a small handful of prospects that could be trumped by division rival Toronto Blue Jays and a handful of other contending teams.

Any thoughts of landing a true difference maker should be swept from your mind this very moment. Not only are those players few and far between it is also not in the nature of the front office to sell out for just one player. There will be no reports of this team landing Giancarlo Stanton, Carlos Gonzalez, Troy Tulowitzki, Yu Darvish, or even Jeff Samardzija. These players are out of the reach of this team because the package going the other way would require one of Gausman or Bundy or too many of the organization’s second tier prospects.

The prospects the Orioles are left to work with in order to complete a trade are the likes of Eduardo Rodriguez, Mike Wright, Tim Berry, and Michael Ohlman. These are your second tier or “B” grade prospects, and that’s not to take anything away from any of them but we’re not talking about staff aces or a middle of the order bat.

However, the Orioles still have plenty of ammunition to acquire a piece or two that could help them in their quest for a division title or a playoff berth at the very least.

Would Dan Duquette consider reuniting with starting pitcher Jason Hammel?

Depending on the cost, it is entirely possible given the bounce back campaign he is currently enjoying. Having posted a career high strikeout rate and a career low walk rate this year, his value has never been higher. He would certainly help the Orioles fortify the starting rotation but if the Chicago Cubs are expecting a return of Eduardo Rodriguez or Hunter Harvey would it be worth it?

Another option would be reaching out to the Cleveland Indians about either Justin Masterson, who is having a horrid season up to this point, or Zach McAllister, who has been banished to Triple-A after having a fairly unlucky and inconsistent start to his 2014 campaign.

Masterson would likely cost the most to acquire due to him having so much success during the 2013 season, but McAllister would be the real prize if the Orioles were able to convince the Cleveland Indians to part with him. At just 26-years-old the issues McAllister is having this year are completely fixable seeing as how a portion of his struggles have to do with him allowing hitters to have plenty of time to get comfortable in the box. The other issue that could be remedied is leaving too many pitches out over the plate. McAllister would provide the Orioles rotation with a young starter that has the ability to succeed at the major league level and has the ceiling of a decent number two starter if he can work the kinks out.

He was rated as the Indians sixth best prospect after the 2011 season by Baseball America, was considered to have the best control at the minor league level and a Baseball America scouting report stated that he could consistently throw a breaking ball for strikes and has a good feel for his changeup.

As far as second base is concerned the Orioles have the pieces to acquire the likes of Chase Utley – and though he has his drawbacks at this point, he would still represent significant upgrades over what Buck Showalter is currently trotting out there on a regular basis.

Utley would have the most to offer this season and possibly next but his age and declining power, couple with his non-existent speed at this point, make him nothing more than a stop-gap solution through 2015 at best. His on-base skills and defensive ability still make him one of the better second baseman in baseball though. It wouldn’t be completely unreasonable to trade a package consisting of Wright, Berry and a lower tier prospect like Adrian Marin to acquire Utley’s services but it would be a slight stretch to give up so much for him.

The final player that the Orioles could make a run at is a Texas Ranger – big shocker, I know.

Elvis Andrus has reportedly underwhelmed Rangers General Manager Jon Daniels, and fans, for two straight seasons now and they are reportedly willing to move him. The Rangers have an overabundance of young middle infielders and that has made Andrus expendable. He’s also being paid like a premier offensive shortstop, the one thing he is not, and trading him would help free up payroll for the Rangers.

His eight-year $118 million contract kicks in next season and he will be paid $15 million per year through 2020 and $14 million per year the final two years of the contract. Andrus also has to opt-out clauses in his contract that he could utilize after the 2018 and 2019 seasons. Any team trading for him would have him through at least 2018, with him opting out if he feels he could earn more as a free agent at 29-years-old. Otherwise the receiving team could be saddled with a contract of a player that won’t live up to it – a gamble that the Orioles simply don’t historically take.

However, Andrus is still only 25-years-old with room for improvement and its possible leaving Texas could be the best thing for him, much like it was for Chris Davis.

The bare minimum it would take for the Orioles acquire a defensively gifted shortstop with 40-plus stolen base potential is at least Eduardo Rodriguez. If anything else substantial would have to be included would likely depend on how much money, if any, the Rangers would be willing to eat as part of the deal.

Andrus won’t fill the void at second base, but acquiring him could allow Showalter to convince Hardy to shift over to second base for the remainder of the season. Andrus would also supply some much needed speed at either the top or bottom of the lineup. Whether this move or any of the others ones come to fruition is the great mystery here, but it is these quality of players the Orioles have the best shot of acquiring to strengthen the team for their playoff run.

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

The average OPS (On-base plus slugging) in baseball, through June 21, is .708 but the average OPS in the American League is .714 and it’s just .701 in the National League. Why this is important is because it gives us a measure of the overall quality of hitters in each league, including the state of offensive talent across baseball (somewhat). What it is also useful for is measuring just how much of a pitcher’s performance is related to them facing a murderers row of hitters more often than not, or if they are simply not very good right now or at all.

Baseball Prospectus has a statistic called oppOPS (opponents OPS) which is useful for measuring the average quality of opponents hitters and pitchers have faced throughout the course of a season or career. They have another statistics labeled PPF which is centered around 100 and represents the percentage of run scoring that was influenced by the mix of ballparks the pitcher pitched in. Anything over 100 illustrates the percentage above normal run scoring was influenced and the opposite is true.

It would be fair to state Chris Tillman, Ubaldo Jimenez, Tommy Hunter, and even Miguel Gonzalez to a lesser extent have been having horrible or troubling seasons. The flip side of that is most would agree that Bud Norris and Wei-Yin Chen are having a decent season so far and pitchers like Ryan Webb, Darren O’Day, and Zach Britton have been crushing the competition.

The chart below (stats through June 21) helps break down and illustrate the quality of hitters each pitcher, with a minimum of 20 innings pitched, on the team has faced to this point in the season and where they rank at in that regard, as well as how much pitching in their mix of ballparks has influenced the number of runs scored or not scored.

Name IP ERA FIP oppOPS (min. 20 IP) Rank (out of 356 Pitchers) PPF
Kevin Gausman 23 2.74 3.17 .767 1 98
Bud Norris 87 3.62 4.47 .730 31 102
Ryan Webb 32.2 2.48 2.68 .728 36 101
Ubaldo Jimenez 81.2 4.63 4.76 .724 71 102
Chris Tillman 84 4.82 4.61 .721 87 102
Darren O’Day 31 1.45 3.28 .720 93 102
T.J. McFarland 21.2 3.32 3.68 .717 112 99
Tommy Hunter 23 5.48 4.47 .716 116 102
Miguel Gonzalez 63.1 4.41 4.72 .706 208 102
Wei-Yin Chen 83.1 3.78 3.86 .702 239 100
Brian Matusz 26 4.15 5.16 .693 283 102
Zach Britton 38.1 1.64 3.26 .690 298 101

 

Britton has had a ton of praise heaped on him since he took over the closer’s role from Hunter, and was being praised for his general work out of the bullpen before that, but you can see he hasn’t been facing much stiff competition. He’s near the bottom of the ranks in baseball for quality of opponents faced, which makes it difficult to accurately judge his dominating performances.

Fans have been calling for Jimenez and Tillman to be placed on the disabled list or moved to the bullpen in message boards and on social media for their struggles. As you can see though, they are near the top of the ranks in baseball for facing some pretty challenging hitters and offenses overall. Additionally, they have also spent most of their time pitching in hitter friendly ballparks, as have the majority of Orioles pitchers.

Looking over the statistics for the Orioles pitching staff in conjunction with the statistics of the overall quality of hitters faced we’re able to at least make a determination of whose performance is possibly for real, for better or worse, and whose we should be a bit more patient with.

Topics include Majors, Minors, Transactions, etc.

The post ON Mailbag 4/14 – 4/20 appeared first on Orioles-Nation.

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.

Your thoughts on Keys outfielder Glynn Davis. Off to a good start, has he turned the corner , or better play from repeating time in same league?
The success from Davis is largely a mix of both aspects. While he has improved, it is important to remember that he is indeed playing the Carolina League over again. At age 22, he is very close to the average age of the league, which often determines how good a prospect is for their location.

Davis has improved in some areas though, such as consistency with his hands in the box. Last year, he was dropping his hands; they were noisy; he would drop his elbow, and generally would struggle to piece together an entire game’s worth of AB. It was not only the hands though, as he would step in the bucket. In 2014, Davis has improved his hands, and they are more quiet. He still has some consistency issues and I still see him stepping in the bucket at times, but there are small improvements. Davis is a plus athlete and has natural athleticism on his side, but it needs to turn into baseball athleticism. I still do not think it is quite there yet. His plate discipline is still fringe, as he does not pick up on anything with good spin.

So the improvements have been noted, but it is important to remember that players like Davis simply do not change over night, and he still will need to work on all the issues he has displayed in the past. Another note; Davis is day-to-day after being hit by a pitch.
- Tucker Blair

Who are you minor league players to watch this year?
Everyone knows about the big names such as Hunter Harvey, Josh Hart, Kevin Gausman, Tim Berry, etc. So here is a list of intriguing players that might not be getting any buzz right now, or might not be in a full-season league.

Jon Keller – I wrote about Keller in notes this week. Keep an eye out on him, even if he works only out of the bullpen this year.
Travis Seabrooke – Loved what I saw from Seabrooke in Spring Training. The young Canadian could see time in Aberdeen this year and the arm has a ton of potential. I touched briefly on him a month ago.
Jonah Heim – I continue to hear great things about Heim. He has improved much defensively and offensively, and would probably be on the Shorebirds’ roster if not for Chance Sisco. Look for him at Aberdeen.
Randolph Gassaway – Could the Orioles finally have a first base prospect? From what I saw in Spring Training, Gassaway showed a lot of promise. He will be one to watch at Aberdeen.
Zach Davies – So he has a little more buzz than the other guys, but I cannot tell you how impressed I was with the changeup. This is a plus pitch and I think it needs more recognition. I wrote up more about him here.

This list goes on, but these are a few that I am really excited to get eyes on again.
- Tucker Blair

Do you think Miguel Gonzalez has a short rope in the rotation?
Yes and no.
Yes, Gonzalez has a short rope and will probably always have a short rope. There are many reasons for this, one being that he seems to need an extra day of rest here and there to be able to perform at his peak. Also, his stuff may play up in the bullpen and he could be an excellent reliever rather than an average starter. Lastly, there are pitchers pushing to make the rotation and someone has to go.

No, because Gonzalez has actually been good as a starter in the past, pitching to a 3.71 ERA in his MLB career, and his last start was his best start thus far this year. In that game against Tampa, he threw too many pitches and walked too many people but his stuff was some of the nastiest it has ever been. He used all of his pitches, Fastball, Curveball, Slider, and Split and got Rays batters to swing and miss on all of them. The curveball impressed me the most as it was the best I have ever seen him use it in a game with a nice tight spin and hard sharp late break. The Splitter, his out pitch, was a lot sharper. Gonzalez will always have to consistently maintain his level of performance to keep his hold on a rotation spot because of his weaknesses, but for now he has a pretty strong hold on his rotation spot.
- Alex Conway
