Tyler Erwin Solid, Lowers ERA To 0.66: The “Just One Fan’s” Prospect Report for 4/28/2018

Tyler Erwin ST

Hello Orioles fans, here is my prospect report for Saturday, April 28th, 2018.


The Shorebirds plated two in the eighth inning on bases loaded walks to beat Hickory 4-2.

The Keys lost to Buies Creek 9-4.

The Baysox gave up 9 total runs in the home half of the seventh and eighth innings combined to fall to the RubberDucks 11-3.

The Tides hung on to beat the RubberDucks 7-6.

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!
