The fear, for me at least, is Elias trying to drag this rebuild on and get a free pass in the standings for as long as possible. I don't see any benefit of being at a level where you're not challenged.

They cant slowplay things if the guys are killing it. Say for example Henderson is rakes at Delmarva and Aberdeen this year. He would start next year at AA and with more good play would get a call up in Sept.

I'll be surprised if we see September callups of any top prospect until the team is good and needs to win those September games.  Same goes for early April.  Elias is going to game the service time of all of these guys.  I'm hoping only for gaining a service year and not also to avoid Super-2 status, but that may be case by case.

 

Obviously if the CBA changes then this could change.

Yes the CBA could change things. Hope it does. I absolutely believe Elias would get the extra year but in my example it would be at the start of the '23 season. If Henderson earned a cup of coffee at the end of '22 they would give it to him and then promote him in May of '23 for good. Overall point is that these guys can force their way ahead of Elias's clock assuming he is trying to slowplay things. Which I don't think he is.

Delmarva's Jordan Westburg is the Low-A East Lg Player of the Week after going 10-for-19. Teammate Gunnar Henderson was POW last week.

As I said in another thread. Delmarva is tearing the cover off the ball as a team.

Be interesting to see how they do against Lynchburg this week, I think they’ve given up the fewest runs in the league.

I thought this was an excellent interview. He gives really good insight into his plate approach.

I like that Westburg and Henderson are competiting against each other.  Competition and success builds confidence and hard work.

Was murdering Low A, High A has been an adjustment.  (It's 27 ab's, so whatever.)  I expect he'll start lighting up Aberdeen soon.

Aberdeen has historically not been a great hitters park. Im assuming that's still the case.

Coach Eller will get him rolling. He's a good guy and a good coach.

Hit his 1st Aberdeen HR today. Starting to get it going a bit.


BTW, Mundy continues to rake at Aberdeen. Probably time for him and Bronovich to get their own threads here.

It would be nice to have a home grown left side of an infield, circa 2023.

Might be up next year. Good start to his career. AA feels like a pretty big step. Hopefully he keeps it going
