Shorebirds Only Affiliate To Play: The “Just One Fan’s” Prospect Report for 6/3/2018


Hello Orioles fans, here is my prospect report for Sunday, June 3rd, 2018.



The Shorebirds lost the resumption of Saturday’s game 12-2 as D.L. Hall gave up 5 earned runs on 9 hits.  They won the second game 5-4 in extra-innings.  Ryan Ripken went 2 for 3 with 2 RBI.

The Keys games with Lynchburg were postponed due to rain.  Only one of the games will be made up as a doubleheader on June 13th, the other game will be cancelled and not made up.

The Baysox game with Trenton was postponed due to rain/wet field conditions.  The make-up is TBD.

The Tides game with Rochester was postponed due to rain.  It will be made up on a date TBD.


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!
