Checking In With The Orioles Minor Leaguers – 7/25

Let’s take a look at the Orioles Minor League Farm System for the Week of July 23, 2013

AAA Norfolkorioles-cartoon-bird

OF Henry Urrutia.367/.406/.467, 4 doubles, triple, 6 RBI, 60 AB – Henry hasn’t slowed down, getting called up to Baltimore following the all-star break. He’ll be the DH against RHP and he already has a three hit game under his belt.
1B Alex Liddi.267/.340/.489, 2 doubles, triple, 2 HR, 11 RBI, 2 SB, 45 AB – Acquired from Seattle, the 24 year old has put up solid numbers throughout his minor league career but it hasn’t translated to the majors as of yet. Nice pick up for depth with upside.
OF LJ Hoes.312/.406/.414, 25 doubles, triple, 3 HR, 40 RBI, 6 SB, 353 AB
OF Jason Pridie.284/.341/.474, 21 doubles, 3 triples, 12 HR, 44 RBI, 5 SB, 331 AB

RHP Josh Stinson5-4, 4.05 ERA, 100 IP, 67 K, 40 BB
RHP Jair Jurrjens6-6, 4.18 ERA, 94.2 IP, 52 K, 24 BB – Jurrjens was only able to make one start for the Orioles before being DFA’d.
LHP Zach Britton3-3, 4.41 ERA, 67.1 IP, 48 K, 30 BB
RHP Kevin Gausman0-1, 6.75 ERA, 13.1 IP, 14 K, 3 BB
LHP Mike Belfiore1-1, 3.91 ERA, 50.2 IP, 55 K, 19 BB
RHP Jairo Ascencio4-0, 2.15 ERA, 20 SV, 37.2 IP, 41 K, 7 BB – Ascencio is currently with the O’s but he should be back in Norfolk soon with the acquisition of Francisco Rodriguez.

RHP Tim Alderson – 3-2, 3.55 ERA, 45.2 IP, 42 K, 11 BB – The Orioles traded Russ Canzler for Alderson, a former first round pick. Converted to relief he has been very effective despite two rough outings to start his tenure with Norfolk. Solid trade considering Canzler wasn’t going to give the O’s anything.

AA Bowie

C Caleb Joseph.290/.340/.492, 23 doubles, triple, 16 HR, 73 RBI, 2 SB, 362 AB
SS Niuman Romero.303/.400/.406, 17 doubles, triple, 2 HR, 32 RBI, 6 SB, 244 AB
3B Tyler Kelly.283./389/.382, 21 doubles, 2 triples, HR, 47 RBI, 4 SB, 283 AB – Kelly was traded to Seattle for OF Eric Thames. He still has a chance to fill a ML role but it would’ve been hard for him to crack O’s infield.
1B Aaron Baker - .251/.333/.400, 13 doubles, 2 triples, 5 HR, 21 RBI, SB, 215 AB

RHP Mike Wright8-2, 3.61 ERA, 102.1 IP, 91 K, 32 BB
RHP Eddie Gamboa4-6, 3.64 ERA, 99 IP, 79 K, 31 BB – Gamboa was recently promoted to AAA Norfolk where he has a 7.20 ERA over two starts covering 10 innings.
LHP Chris Petrini3-4, 2.81 ERA, 48 IP, 44 K, 28 BB
RHP Tim Bascom2-2, 2.11 ERA, 42.2 IP, 34 K, 18 BB
LHP Eduardo Rodriguez0-2, 5.06 ERA, 16 IP, 19 K, 10 BB – Rodriguez had a rough first outing at AA but has settled down and had another solid start tonight (7/23). Its a big jump but he appears to be handling it ok.
RHP Oliver Drake2-0, 2.00 ERA, 4 SV, 18 IP, 23 K, 6 BB

A+ Frederick

3B Nick Delmonico.244/.351/.471, 12 doubles, 13 HR, 30 RBI, 5 SB, 225 AB – Just traded to Milwaukee for Francisco Rodriguez. It was a win now move to trade a top 10 prospect for a few months of a reliever. I don’t think I would’ve pulled the trigger but at the same time I feel like Delmonico is in between not having the defense for third base but not quite having the bat for first base. I would say if the O’s make a deep run in the playoffs then it was worth it, if not, I’m not so sure.
C Michael Ohlman.309/.409/.558, 14 doubles, 4 triples, 12 HR, 41 RBI, 3 SB, 233 AB
1B Christian Walker.288/.343/.479, 17 doubles, 8 HR, 35 RBI, 2 SB, 215 AB

GCL Orioles

SS Jonathon Schoop.360/.469/.800, 2 doubles, 3 HR, 9 RBI, 25 AB – Successful rehab for Schoop so far. On to Aberdeen before returning to Norfolk.
C Chance Sisco.382/.463/.412, double, 6 RBI, 34 AB

    Wondering out loud how some of these O’s minor leaguers (who BTW will probably never crack the O’s 25) would have looked in the trade for Garza?! MGW, I know, we are building for the future..any way the future is now. Lets see, Garza goes seven plus gives up one in his Ranger debut with a W. Garza 1 and O’s zero in my opinion. Hey BSR stat team, how about we track Garza’s starts for the balance of this year and dream about what might have been for O’s?
