Westburg made 2 defensive plays that inning that we have to ask if Mayo could/would make. 

 

Those plays likely determine where Mayo should play (future).

I agree with the longer term sentiment...but the bar for Mayo getting time at 3rd might be...

1) Can he be average defensively?
2) Does Mateo crater...creating need for him to be replaced (Westburg) and giving opportunity at 3rd for Mayo? Could use Urias as defensive replacement in close and late.

If Mateo doesn't crater, harder to create 24 opportunities for Mayo.

Mayo at 3B, Westburg at 2B. Mateo is not a full time player.

I don't have confidence in him maintaining a plus 700 OPS, but he is there right now. That plus the defense and speed gives him regular abs until he slumps.

After that, there is opportunity.

But...Mayo would have to be average defensively at 3rd.

Great AB by Westburg there. Use the right side of the field to get Mullins to 3rd with less than two outs.

That's why Suarez is 10-1 this year. He locates well and isn't afraid to pitch around the zone, either.

Seems to have a wicked change up.

Bradish doesn't quite look right. Keeps shaking out throwing elbow/ arm / hand.

Yeah. He doesn't have high end velocity at all. I'm guessing his changeup leaves his hand at the same location as his fastball does. It's all about keeping hitters off balance.

And Hyde gives away an out. 

 

Not a fan of that when your lead runner is Santander.

That might be on Mateo trying to bunt for a hit.

Santander with 114 EV on that smash through the left side...hardest hit by an Oriole this year.
