FYI, Adrian Marin just signed his contract: https://twitter.com/... ... 4834404352. I suspect the O's have more top-10 deals done. Would like to see Marin in Aberdeen this summer but he might be a GCL guy. We'll see.

I would think a HS kid is definitely going to the GCL.

I'd agree with this. Marin is a pretty raw talent, so I would imagine they'd bring him along very slowly.

Depending on how they end the year, I could see Delmonico leaping Schoop.

Just to be clear, you are talking about Delmonico (the 20-yr old first baseman at Class A Delmarva) jumping Schoop (the 20-yr old middle-infielder at Double-A Bowie), right?

I have a hard time placing Delmonico above Schoop due to pretty significant differences in positional value, and Schoop performed better than Delmonico is the same league at a slightly younger age. I think Delmonico is a really solid prospect, but I think he'll end up in the 5-6 range depending on how Rodriguez and Bridwell perform.

Yea...but understand that I am saying that there has to be continued improvement for Delmonico and Schoop continues to struggle or even gets worse.

I think its unlikely Nicky D leaps over Schoop but I wouldn't close the door on the idea either.

But I like the offensive stats I am seeing out of Nick D right now.

I guess, but again we're talking about Delmonico doing it two levels lower than Schoop while playing a defensive position to requires a lot more offensive production. I don't know. Do you think Delmonico would be putting up these numbers (which are solid, not spectacular) at Double-AA right now?

Probably not..but Schoop isn't either. So, it comes down to an upside thing. If Delmonico shows more power plus as good or better plate discipline as he is showing now, his prospect status elevates.

On top of that, if Schoop ends up with a sub 700 OPS, I think the argument can be made that Delmonico passed Schoop for this particular season. Schoop would likely be staying in AA and Nicky D would be in Frederick.

Age is extremely important, especially considering level of competition. But performance matters as well.

I don't see how, statistically, delmonico has been superior. Schoop put up better numbers (including bb/so) at Delmarva, and at a younger age.

Don't disagree.

Just a reminder that new names will soon begin to pop up because Aberdeen and the GCL are beginning very soon, so top 15 lists will change too. I'm at Aberdeen a lot so I'll keep y'all posted on what I see throughout the season. According to Melewski (http://www.masnsport... ... notes.html), Aberdeen's rotation is going to be Sebastian Vader (great name), Jaime Esquivel, Mark Blackmar, Juan Guzman and Cameron Coffey. Also on the squad is outfielder Roderick Bernadina, who apparently opened a few eyes down at the GCL last year. Have to imagine that most of the college pitchers taken in this year's draft will pitch at least some innings for Aberdeen -- Kline (I hope), Rutledge, Price and Wager. It'd be awesome to see Gausman but I have a feeling they'll shut him down.

Yeah they kick off on Monday, I'm looking forward to it. I'm interested in seeing what Vader, Esquivel, and Coffey do as well as the newly drafted guys. Will also be interesting to see if any Schoops or Linos pop up in the GCL this year. Hows Hector Veloz doing?

Veloz will be in the GCL at (I believe) age 18 this year after spending last summer in the DSL.

When you guys are in Aberdeen, Dan Malone (Eb45 @ OH) is a really good guy if you can catch up with him to talk prospects too. I dunno if they still have press credentials out there or not, but he's usually at a good chunk of games either way. Definitely a guy to brainstorm with.

Where would you place Urrutia as a prospect in the system?

I'd imagine that he'd fall in on most boards between 7-13.
