Mullins Tallies 1st AAA Hit: The “Just One Fan’s” Prospect Report for 6/2/2018

Mullins Tides

Hello Orioles fans, here is my prospect report for Saturday, June 2nd, 2018.



The Shorebirds game with the River Dogs was suspended in the bottom of the second inning with the Shorebirds leading 1-0.  It will be resumed on Sunday, June 3rd.

The Keys game with Lynchburg was postponed due to rain.  It will be made up as a part of a double-header on Sunday, June 3rd.

The Baysox defeated the Trenton Thunder 2-1 as Keegan Akin wins his 6th game of the season.

The Tides beat the Red Wings 7-3, Cedric Mullins with his first AAA hit. Drew Dosch and Caleb Joseph each hit 3-run homeruns.


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!
