Tyler Erwin Holds The Win: The “Just One Fan’s” Prospect Report for 4/22/2018


Hello Orioles fans, here is my prospect report for Sunday, April 22nd, 2018.


The Shorebirds manage just 2 hits in a 2-1 loss to the Lakewood BlueClaws.

The Keys beat the Blue Rocks 6-2 behind Ofelky Peralta’s three-hitter.

The Baysox fall 9-4 to the RubberDucks despite Audry Perez’s 3 hits, homerun and 3 RBI.

The Tides beat the Bisons 6-1.  Asher Wojciechowski gets the win with 5.0 of 4 hit/ 1 run relief.


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 have caught my eye and that I am interested in; I thought I would use this platform to help other Orioles fans get to know them as well as follow their progress.  I am continuing that work this season and have added a few new names to the list; two players from last year’s report are now with other organizations.  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.


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 (#7), RHP Yefry Ramirez (#19), 3B Jomar Reyes (#21) 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.

Thanks for reading!
