Pack your bags kid, you're Norfolk-bound.

I am guessing the Orioles are not to concerned about the glove.  It will be interesting to see how the positions play out.  The more I watch Gunnar the more I think he is a shortstop.  That is a real nice problem to have.

Even for a #1 overall pick he's had a truly unbelievable season.

It's not unusual for a 19 year old's bat to be more advanced than his defense. Of course, he'll be 20 in three months. 

 

For 20 year olds, if the defensive profile doesn't catch up, he might get DFA'd.

That looks like the plan.

Nice that Jackson will have pretty much a month at AAA this year. Set him up nicely for ST.

 

Go get em kid and see you in Baltimore soon (no later than June 1st is my guess).

My guess is unless he hits a snag, and assuming he works on his SS play this offseason, he'll head north with the club out of Spring Training. Not too far out on a limb 'hot take': You might see a package centered around Joey Ortiz moved for a young SP this winter.

I think he’ll stay down for the first three weeks or whatever it is to delay his service clock but he’ll be up ASAP assuming he’s healthy and raking.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

And then he’ll win RoY and get the full year anyway. This is why I think he has a great chance to make the team out of spring.

He went 1-4 with a strikeout, a double and a run scored. He also booted both balls hit his way at SS. 

 

Ouch.

When I was at a Rangers game, a fan asked if I thought the O's would bring him up this year. So he's on the radar of fans from other teams.  


Good news! I saw a dog today.

Orioles become the first team to ever have BA MiLB player of the year in back to back seasons.

Looks like he's gotten a few games at 2nd for Norfolk. Worth keeping an eye on?

Good chance that is his primary position at least to start his ML career. But I'm assuming just giving him time there just in case of a inopportune injury.
