    Positional Prospect Report: 4/28/12


    by skanar

    Stats are not including today's games. Good week in the upper minors, especially at Norfolk. Bad week for the lower minors, as with Delmonico injured, only Christian Walker is hitting. Excitement over Adrian Marin earlier this month now looks a little premature.

    Delmarva
    1B Christian Walker. Since 4/21: 25 PA, .304/.360/.391. Season: 90 PA, .350/.436/.463 (.899) 10/11 BB/K
    SS Adrian Marin. Since 4/21: 20 PA, .100/.100/.100. Season: 62 PA, .237/.277/.305 (.582) 3/14 BB/K
    3B Torsten Boss. Since 4/21: 28 PA, .320/.393/.600. Season: 86 PA, .231/.310/.372 (.682) 8/18 BB/K
    CF Roderick Bernadina. Since 4/21: 26 PA, .217/.308/.217. Season: 50 PA, .289/.365/.400 (.765) 5/8 BB/K

    Walker's hit well, Marin tanked. Boss is showing signs of life, and Bernadina had a poor week coming off his injury.

    Frederick
    C Michael Ohlman. Since 4/21: Did not play. Season: 39 PA, .182/.308/.273 (.580) 6/9 BB/K
    1B Nick Delmonico. Since 4/21: Did not play. Season: 51 PA, .325/.471/.600 (1.071) 11/11 BB/K
    CF Glynn Davis. Since 4/21: 29 PA, .154/.241/.192. Season: 94 PA, .202/.287/.321 (.608) 10/23 BB/K

    Delmonico and Ohlman are still injured. Davis has been terrible after his excellent first week: he hasn't hit and he's added a lot of Ks.

    Bowie
    IF Ty Kelly. Since 4/21: 22 PA, .263/.364/.368. Season: 100 PA, .250/.365/.357 (.723) 16/15 BB/K
    CF Xavier Avery. Since 4/21: 23 PA, .286/.348/.333. Season: 106 PA, .287/.374/.415 (.789) 12/29 BB/K
    OF Henry Urrutia. Since 4/21: 21 PA, .278/.381/.611. Season: 25 PA, .364/.440/.682 (1.122) 3/5 BB/K.

    Kelly has settled in; his numbers this week were very similar to his numbers for the season. OK average, lots of walks, not many Ks, doubles power only. Avery is also doing what he does, though he's had a nice BB rate at AA. Urrutia got off to a great start.

    Norfolk
    SS Jonathan Schoop. Since 4/21: 17 PA, .462/.588/.615. Season: 78 PA .225/.313/.324 (.636) 7/14 BB/K
    OF LJ Hoes. Since 4/21: 25 PA, .478/.538/.696. Season: 88 PA, .289/.375/.408 (.783) 10/12 BB/K

    Hoes had a fantastic week, and his season line now looks like the usual Hoes stats: contact, walks, only doubles power. Schoop also picked it up, but only played in 4 games.

    Worth noting: both Hoes and Schoop have extreme home/away splits: Hoes .604/.894, Schoop .425/.819. Harbor Park continues to be an awful place for Orioles hitters, and I'm starting to wonder if bringing Manny straight up from AA wasn't just the right call in general. Maybe most O's hitting prospects should be kept at Bowie?
