Clearly struggling with the bat. Gonna have to start laying off and or hitting the off speed stuff to be a decent 2b.

 

That said, he is a good glove at 2b. Better than most O's fans  give him credit.

48 pitchers had at least 50 plate appearances last season.  8 of them had higher OPS than Ryan Flaherty does this season.

 

45 pitchers have at least 25 plate appearances this season and 10 of them have a higher OPS than Flaherty does.

 

The total pitcher OPS this season is 337, which is 139 OPS points lower than Flaherty's 476, which is 251 points lower than the AL average OPS of 727.  Flaherty is much closer to the average pitcher's OPS than he is to the avergage hitter's OPS.

 

 

Luis Hernandez has a career .580 OPS in 292 PAs, an OPS+ of 55.  Ryan Flaherty has a career .549 OPS in 324 PAs, an OPS+ of 49.

Yeah, he's really bad. The other options aren't good, but damn is he bad.

Yeah, yeah, yeah... Mackus and his numbers and all that... Maybe Flaherty is just John Smoltz... of hitters. :lol:

I mean, it really is just down right crazy how horrible he's been at the plate. I was in his camp in the off-season, so there's an "I was wrong" for ya, which is just stupid of me. There was really nothing to suggest he'd turn it around, other than his last several AB's in September/October. Just a couple solid weeks really. I guess I trusted that if Buck fought so hard to keep him on the roster all year, they really saw things they liked and believed in. But he's been just absolutely awful at the plate, so it's time to move on. At this point, I'm firmly in the "start Casilla" camp, even despite his stupid play the other night.

Over his last 5 games, Flaherty is 8-19 for 3 homeruns. Almost got that average above the Mendoza line.

At the rate he's going he will pass Wieters and no longer be the worst hitter in the lineup.

BSL: In Flaherty We (Should) Trust
http://baltimorespor...e-should-trust/

I take a look at Flaherty's recent performance and wonder if he shouldn't just remain the starter at second over Roberts.

2 awful months to 1 good one. He should stay the starter now while he's hot, but I don't trust him for the future.

Seriously though, I hinted at a lot of this stuff in my post when Roberts started rehab.

 

Glad to see a deeper post looking into his performance

Could totally picture you singing acapella with a sock-puppet on your hand.

Alright guys you're the experts on this: Will Jonathan Schoop be ready to be the everyday guy at 2B in 2014? Obviously he's the future at the position. But if Flaherty can keep this up, he could be good trade bait.

Nope. If he had stayed healthy and excelled all year MAYBE, but with missing most of the season I think he's still got too much work to do to come back from that on top of developing to start the season next year. He's also going to be a step down defensively from any of those guys so you have to take that into consideration. He's not some 30 HR bat like some people want to project, 20 maybe if everything breaks right, but more likely a 10-20 guy, and then you have to weigh the boost in offense (.280-20hr top end I think) against the drop off defensively (don't think he's terrible there, just not as good as guys playing so far).

Like Jeremy said, because of the injury I'd agree that there really isn't much of a chance of him being ready to be our everyday second baseman in 2014.

Thanks, guys. I figured the injury would have something to do with it.

In his first 13 games this month, he was 8-43(.186 BA) with 2 walks, 2 doubles and no homers.

In his last 8 games, he is 14-29, with 4 homers, 1 walk and zero doubles...he has 4 straight multi hit games and 6 out of 8.

It's a very nice hot stretch but it has been 8 games. His OPS was still below 500 as of June 19.

I think we need to throttle back on the enthusiasm a bit until he can show anything over a longer period of time.

He has been awful for most of the year. That being said, I have no issue with DHing BRob and playing him at second base right now, since his bat is hot.
