Quite possibly the future BMore SS. I have Gunnar penciled in at 3b. Could be traded this offseason but if not I think he is next in line after Mateo.


I’m relearning to appreciate great defense at SS, it’s been a while. It’s good that people think Gunnar can still stick at SS, and that’s probably a perfectly fine option. But if he can be a plus 3B instead and combine it with a plus to elite SS like Ortiz or Mateo that also sounds great. Hopefully someone can hit well enough.

We aren’t talking about Joey enough. His July-now numbers are insane.

H/T to our old pal Lucky Jim for pointing this out to me

Either the longest heater I can remember seeing or he figured something out.

He's even starting to run now. 5/6 in SB attempts at AAA. Only 2/3 at AA.  He wants to get to the show ASAP.  National guys still seem to be disrespecting him hard. Not Birdland

Scratched from the lineup tonight in case Urias needs to go on the IL.

This and Ortiz is already on the 40 man.

Both add up. I did see that Westburg wasnt in the lineup yesterday.

Ortiz is a top 5 prospect in this system.

Top 3. Technically GRod and Gunnar havent graduated but if we dont include him hes top 3 for me. Hes passed and Westburg and Norby and they havent even done anything wrong. Holliday obviously. I guess you could have Hall, Cowser, Kjerstad, and Mayo in the mix for 2 through 5 but Joey slots in maybe at 2 for me. Defintely 3rd if not 2. Plays a premium postion. The glove is very good to great. The exit velos and hitting are there. Yeah, hes number #2 for me right now. I guess if you wanna knock his injury concerns that could push him down but not for me.

The Orioles have promoted infielder Joey Ortiz and optioned Terrin Vavra after yesterday’s game. When Ortiz features, it will be his major league debut

There was already a logjam in the infield.  Will Ortiz play 2B and Gunnar DH more?  Hopefully this doesn't mean that Mateo is hurt.

Facing three lefties in this Detroit series, Vavra and Frazier redundant. Ortiz can play excellent D at SS and 2B.

Doesn’t strike out much (16.4% since the start of last season). Surprising amount of power in his frame (109 mph 90th percentile exit velo this year). Well earned!

Yeah I'm happy for him to get his shot, hope he doesn't get the Stowers < 1 PA/g treatment. Even the Vavra treatment (1.3 PA/g) wouldn't be ideal if you think he's a good prospect. He's never played an inning in the OF. Hopefully Hyde can mix it up enough.

I'd be more excited if I thought he'd get more of a chance to play.  Mateo certainly isn't getting sat right now.  Are they gonna play him over Frazier, Urias, or Henderson?  Maybe against lefties they'll start sitting Frazier and Henderson and go with Urias, Mateo, and Ortiz from left-to-right?

Paying Frazier 8 million to be a platoon bat would be pretty funny

That would be awesome. Joey isnt gonna get the Stowers treatment IMO. Hes passed Westburg and Norby as a prospect. Hes a ML ready dude defensively. Thats so big. Such a help to be able to get through any slumps with the bat by having a great glove. Doesnt hurt that his exit velos have been off the charts as well.


I think hes Mateo insurance first and foremost. I would suspect he starts vs most lefties. Frazier sits. Gunnar is the DH or also sits if McCann/Adley are both in the lineup. We will see how often he starts vs RHP. Thats tbd but as Phelan points out in the short term we face 3 lefties in Detroit
