Part of the Jose Iglesias trade

 

MASN and other outlets wrote about him being a local guy, so that's a fun thing to root for

Stallings cleaned up his mechanics and added big time velo this offseason!

That would be very significant if it can be maintained. Would also be really odd if two guys in the system made such major strides, as Means had a huge tick up last year as well. Especially weird since this is coming at a time when they can't get any team instruction.

Would make him being targeted by Elias make more sense.

Certainly would, but would Elias and the scouting team have any insight into that? Had Stallings made any of these strides by the time the O's acquired him in early December?

Hopefully the control/command and offspeed effectiveness is maintained.


Does this mean Mack has signed off on the deal now? 😉

If the team knew this about him ahead of time, then that's certainly information we didn't have on hand at the time of the trade.  I'm skeptical that they had this knowledge, frankly I'm skeptical that a velocity uptick has even happened as this was a training video promoting the trainers, but if he's seen a 3 MPH or more increase in velocity that certainly changes his quality as a prospect as that's a big deal.  I thought and have said all along that Stallings was a tier below what I thought was a reasonable return for Iglesias.  If Stallings truly has this sort of an uptick in velocity, that would likely be enough to bump him up a tier.

The uptick in velo has been a steady rise over the last few months. Not just to hype Ben's facility.

I normally write things like this to spring training fluff, but we saw Means tick up 3-5 MPH last year, so maybe Stallings is this years player that benefits greatly from using the new information and techniques.

Sure did.  Boy that came from the way back machine.

If he has Olsen's curve ball, we will really have something.
