On This Day In Baltimore Orioles’ History: 6/21/1983 #35thAnniversary

Roenicke

The New York Yankees visited Memorial Stadium and lost to the Baltimore Orioles by a score of 5-2 on this day in 1983.  The Orioles scored 3 runs in the bottom of the 8th inning to break a 2-2 tie and held on for the win.

Gary Roenicke hit 2 homeruns, including a 2-run homerun in the 8th inning.  The 8th inning blast helped propel Tippy Martinez (1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB) to his 5th win of the year.  Martinez was pitching in relief of starter Storm Davis who lasted 7.2 innings and gave up 2 runs on 8 hits with 3 walks and 8 strikeouts.

Yankees’ starter Shane Rawley surrendered all 5 Orioles’ runs in a losing effort.  Offensively, Graig Nettles accounted for all the Yankees’ scoring; he went 2 for 4 with a run scored, 1 homerun and 2 RBI.

Season Record: 39-27

#TheRoadToBirdland

This season, I am highlighting five Baltimore Orioles minor league prospects; these players are personal favorites of mine.  The players are C Ben Breazeale (NR per MLB Pipeline), OF Cedric Mullins (#6), RHP Yefry Ramirez (#17), 3B Jomar Reyes (#19) and RHP James Teague (NR).

In an article for Baby Birdland, I explained the reasons why I am watching one of them (Reyes); one (Breazeale) was my first face-to-face interview for Baby Birdland.  I also had the opportunity to conduct a face-to-face interview with another (Mullins) early this season.   Each day here you will find a summary of their game performance.

In addition, I asked readers to suggest who they would be interested in following daily and based on those suggestions, I added a reader’s section below.  I hope you enjoy this effort and that you will provide feedback on it; I am open to any suggestions on how to make it better as well as any criticism of it.  Let’s engage in a dialogue about the players; they are the future of the Orioles.

Thanks for reading!

A Solid Start For Ramirez: The “Just One Fan’s” Prospect Report for 6/19/2018

Recapping an Impressive First Half for RHP Michael Baumann (from @BabyBirdland)

Michael Baumann Shorebirds

The first half of the 2018 season has ended for both the Delmarva Shorebirds (A-Low) and the Frederick Keys (A-High) and the teams are currently enjoying a three-day break for their All-Star games.

Were it not for a May promotion, Keys’ RHP Michael Baumann would be in Greensboro representing the Shorebirds as a South Atlantic League All-Star.

Baumann, the Baltimore Orioles’ 2017 third-round draft pick, began the 2018 season in the Shorebirds’ rotation and was dominant from the start. He appeared in 7 games for the Shorebirds and produced a 5-0 record accompanied by a 1.42 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP. In 38.0 innings of work Baumann struck out 47, walked 13 and allowed an opponent’s batting average of .180. Remarkably he did not allow a homerun to Sally League batters. Four of Baumann’s seven starts for the Shorebirds were quality starts including what turned out to be his final three starts for the team.

That performance earned Baumann a promotion to Frederick and probably cost him a shot at being named an All-Star.

Baumann put the Carolina League on notice immediately. His first start for the Keys was a 7.0 inning 1 run, 4 hit victory. The increased level of competition has not fazed him.

At the end of the first half of the season, Baumann’s Keys record sits at 4-0 over 6 starts, 2 of which were quality starts. He has pitched to a 2.34 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP in 34.2 innings of work with 22 strikeouts and 12 walks. Carolina League batters have only managed a .185 average against him.

At 6’4” tall and 225 lbs., Baumann is big and physical and relies on a mid-90 mph fastball to dominate batters. His four-pitch mix includes an above average slider as well as an average curveball and changeup.

Baumann’s pitch mix is producing a strikeout/9 innings ratio of 5.51 as well as a walk rate per 9 innings of 3.12. What stands out is his .206 BAbip (batting average on balls in play); hitters are just not very successful when they make contact with his pitches. The batters that do have success and get on base are stranded at a rate of 77.6%.

Overall, Baumann’s 2018 numbers are a 9-0 record in 13 starts (6 quality starts) with a 1.86 ERA and 0.96 WHIP over 72.2 innings. Both MLB Pipeline and Baby Birdland currently list him as the Orioles’ #13 prospect. That ranking will certainly go up should he continue his first half success.

Baumann is a prospect on the rise and I would not be surprised, especially with the current state of the Orioles that he finds himself in Bowie (AA) at season’s end.

Baumann looks like a gem among the Orioles’ pitching prospects and his future development is going to be fun to watch. He, along with a few others, may very well be the pitching help the Baltimore Orioles need.

On This Day In Baltimore Orioles’ History: 6/19/1983 #35thAnniversary

127958

Eddie Murray propelled the Baltimore Orioles to a 6-3 win over the Boston Red Sox on this day in 1983.

Murray, who went 3 for 4 in the game, blasted 2 homeruns off of Red Sox starter and eventual losing pitcher Mike Brown.  Murray scored 3 of the Orioles’ 6 runs and had 2 RBI.

Murray’s offense helped starter Jim Palmer notch his second win of the season.  Palmer pitched 5.1 scoreless innings and gave up 3 hits while striking out 3 and walking 1.

The Orioles’ offense was quite efficient in this game; the 6 runs were the product of just 6 hits.  Four of the hits were for extra-bases: Murray’s 2 homeruns as well as doubles by both Joe Nolan and Ken Singleton.

Season Record: 38-27
