Keys Postponed, Mullins’ Streak Ends: The “Just One Fan’s” Prospect Report for Memorial Day 5/28

Hello Orioles fans, here is my prospect report for Monday, May 28th, 2018.


The Shorebirds lost to the Blue Claws in extra-innings 9-8.

The Keys game with the Wood Ducks was postponed due to inclement weather; it will be made up in Frederick at a TBD date from June 14-17.

The Baysox lost to the Rumble Ponies 3-2.  A bases-loaded walk in the 8th proved to be the difference.

The Tides lost a pitcher’s duel to the Mud Hens 1-0.


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 (#6), RHP Yefry Ramirez (#17) and 3B Jomar Reyes (#19).

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!
