Brandon Hyde: “I think Richie’s been swinging the bat well off left-handed pitching." Including his three-run homer tonight, Richie Martin is hitting .304 off lefties since July 1. #Orioles

Does anyone think Richie Martin is an answer?

I think he should go to AAA, produce, and earn his way back.

I like his glove.

He has been basically overmatched in his under 300 ML abs, but there has been some improvement.

He has a little pop. Great speed. His offense at AA in 18 was good to believe he has more to offer with the bat than we've seen so far (and with more development).

Likely a utility type at best....but wouldn't be totally shocked to see him produce at AAA.

Right.

 

The "big improvement" came in a SSS of 111 PAs.


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

AAA is the obvious answer.  He gets to play there everyday and attempt to earn his way back.

I don't understand why the O's seem so intent on keeping him with the big club. It seems pretty clear that he isn't ready. 


Good news! I saw a dog today.

I don't think they are intent on keeping him in the Majors. There is an outside / unlikely chance he sticks to start the year as a utility guy, but I think he's going back to AAA to play everyday.

Good, that's the best approach.

Elias stopped just short of saying they were sending him down.

He needs to spend a year in AAA, to continue to develop.

That is a tough for Martin, He probably was not going to play a lot but now he will not even get reps

I think Martin may have a decent shot to make the OD roster.  I do think the Orioles sign a veteran shortstop, but unless they plan to utilize Sanchez as the back up SS, there is no one ready to fill that role.  Valaika played there last year, but defensively he was awful.

I agree. Valaika and Urias were both pretty bad and no one else on the roster really fits. Of course the metrics didn't love Martin in 2019 either, though his reputation said he was a good fielder I think.
