Keys, Baysox & Tides Lose: The “Just One Fan’s” Prospect Report for 4/16/2018


Hello Orioles fans, here is my prospect report for Monday, April 16th, 2018.

DAILY SUMMARY:  The Shorebirds were postponed (wet field) in Hagerstown, a doubleheader is scheduled for Tuesday.

The Keys managed just 4 hits in a 5-0 loss in Lynchburg,

The Baysox left 13 men on base as 9th inning rally falls short in 4-2 loss to the Flying Squirrels.

Andrew Susac’s homerun is not enough as Tides lose 7-3 to the IronPigs.


BACKGROUND:  Last season I began the Prospect Report in an effort to highlight the daily performances of several Baltimore Orioles’ minor league players.  They were all players that I thought highly of and was interested in, so I thought I would use this platform to help other Orioles fans get to know and follow them as well.  I am continuing that work this season and I have added a few new names to the list.  In addition, I asked the readers to suggest who they would be interested in following daily.  Based on those suggestions, I have added a reader’s section below.  I hope you enjoy the effort and provide feedback on it.  Let’s engage in a dialogue about the players; they are the future of the Orioles.


Thanks for reading!


This season, I am highlighting five Baltimore Orioles minor league prospects; these players are personal favorites of mine.  In an article for Baby Birdland, I explained the reasons why I am watching one of them; another was my first face-to-face interview. The players are C Ben Breazeale (NR per MLB Pipeline), OF Cedric Mullins (#7), RHP Yefry Ramirez (#19), 3B Jomar Reyes (#21) and RHP James Teague (NR).  Each day here you will find a summary of their game performance.
