Balt SunGlove to see it? After a ‘gnarly’ injury, usually barehanded Orioles OF Austin Hays has the AL’s longest active hitting streak.

Not to worried about the splits.  Hays, IMO has been the Orioles best player.

 

He probably loses out to Trey in regards to the AS game, but both are deserving IMO.  The Orioles being bad probably limits them to one spot.

I was admittedly pessimistic about him improving but even I tried to make the case for his splits just being circumstantial and not actually being an issue.

He's 8th in WAR among AL outfielders.

7th in AVG

10th in HR

7th in OPS

7th in wOBA

8th in wRC+

 

I think he's got a shot at being our selection, but Lopez is far further up the closer food chain than Hays is the outfielder list.  Also possible someone less productive than Hays gets the nod as their team's lone selection (Benintendi or Taylor from KC).

Eno Sarris on Austin Hays:

Are all approach changes the same? You have Bell targeting pitches out over the plate vs in tight as one example. And then Austin Hays as another. He was swinging at pitches low in the zone almost exclusively in April (left) and now in June (right), he’s started to swing at pitches higher in the zone.

Here’s why Hays’ change could be more sustainable: launch angle is directly related to where the pitch lands in the zone. In other words, high pitches are hit higher and low pitches are hit lower. So simply attacking high pitches can lead to a better launch angle and more Barrels.

Hays doesn’t rate highly when it comes to advanced defensive metrics, and he also swings at too many pitches, but we shouldn’t let a few flaws obscure his overall potential. Compared to Mountcastle, just as an example, he makes much more contact. The 26-year-old’s 17.6 percent strikeout rate is in the top 60 for that metric, and only 11 players have a higher isolated slugging percentage in that group. You might know them: Jose Ramirez, Nolan Arenado, Will Smith, Juan Soto, Kyle Tucker, Yordan Alvarez, Manny Machado, Rafael Devers, Jose Altuve, Mookie Betts and Anthony Rizzo. Giddyap.


Left is April heatmap, right is June:

Hays said he’s day to day. X-rays negative. No additional swelling. Swung in cage and just didn’t feel right. May be available off bench

My guy is ice cold to begin July... 2 for 20, average now at .267.  

Want him to wake up and get hot...  the impressive aspect of April - June for me, is that I don't think we saw 'On-fire Hays'...  it felt more like 'Consistent, this is who I am Hays' to me.

He did get hit right on the wrist with a pitch a couple games ago, and has had a couple other plays where I thought he might be dinged up. He goes all out. May just be in a minor physical slump. He has been nice and consistent.

THink his WAR was close to 3 at this point. Maybe 2.8

I would be starting Stowers over him right now and bringing Hays on late for Defense.

I would too but Hyde, in a postseason race, won’t. 


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Its typically what limits him, but its injuries again.  His numbers started plummeting right around the time he started getting bi-weekly wrist and hand injuries.  He never got hurt badly enough to go on the IL this season but he's been well below 100%.  

 

Its an area where we can look to upgrade, but he's also good enough to be penciled in for LF in 2023 if we make upgrades elsewhere (which is likely what I'd do).  Stowers and Hays are probably the opening day corner OF and then one of them gets bumped by Cowser around June.
