Baltimore Orioles Starting Roster: STAT Cast Breakdown

Pedro Severino  C 26 R 2020 notes

He’s worked his way up to good Xwoba. Last yr was only .221 Don’t expect much power. In over 600 PA in career.

For 2021: 

Strikes out a lot but has avg. OPS. His platoon mate Chance Sisco gets on base better but still average hitting.

1B: Ryan Mountcastle no 2020 notes. 

Led all rookies in OBP and led the team in Hard contact. Could prove to be the best hitter on the team.

2B: Yolmer Sanchez

Stabilizes the 2B position with his gold glove, actually hit as well of the bench for White Sox with over 1.1 OPS. He’s not much as a hitter

3B: Rio Ruiz 25 L  3b 2020 notes

Did not excel  any category. However he does get his HR’s off of Righties. He will either regress back to the minors or get better. Made it to the Astros and Braves high A ball but I couldn’t find anything outstanding.

For 2021: You’ll likely get some runs and RBI’s from him when playing or using this lineup, however may get pulled in late innings, decreasing any value for fantasy

SS: Richie Martin: 25 2020 notes

only 283 ABs Low BA, 10 SB, good fielder in 2019.

For 2021: He may have to pick up his batting skill to get full time duty. Did not play in 2020.

CF: Austin Hays 2020 notes

In only 69 PA’s we have to go with minor league data as there is nothing outstanding that I see there. What he has done in the majors in 21 games is get on base. He should be the lead-off hitter.

For 2021: He was very productive, maybe best on the team however his hits came in bunches making him boom or bust from day to day in fantasy.  Too bad they lost Jonathan Villar At SS/2nd base after 2019.

2. Hanser Alberto R  .305 avg 2b/3b

Interesting sophmore guy as he had the majority of his PA’s in 2019 in the majors despite spending 3 years on the Rangers roster. He’s a batting average guy with high ground ball numbers.b

LF: Anthony Santander R OF 2020 notes

with 21 HRs last year due to his .216 ISO, with 261 BA. As a popular low cost DFS option this could be the heart of the lineup. He could get better as the season progresses.

Trey Mancini DH/OF- 2020 notes

This cleanup hitter showed impressive ability to drive in runs with .244 ISO last year. His XSLG, Barrel, and Exit Velo back it up but only for a season. He could be steadily improving instead regressing back to the norm. 28 yrs old.

For 2021: After the tumor in his colon, he will look to be the most consistent hitter on this team probably to lead the team in HRs, and RBI’s if he can hold off Mountcastle.

RF: DJ Stewart 2020 notes

26 L OPS and OBP were higher vs Lefties, only 4 HRs those were vs vs Righty

The Bench

Dwight Smith: 27 L in 357 AB .241 avg 13 HR 53 rbi 5 SB

Chris Davis 34 L 6,3 230 1b/Bench 2020 notes

With 2 consecutive years all his numbers being below avg. for any MLB player, does he have anything left?

P1: John Means 2020 notes

L significantly better vs lefties in every category. His innings went down in 2nd half of season. Only 39 innings pitched vs lefties. 12-11 record as young call up last yr. The good news is he was officially named the Opening Day starter before play was suspended, but his schedule lined him up for the duties. Whenever play resumes, Means figures to lead the Orioles’ rotation, working ahead of veteran Alex Cobb. Means is coming off of a breakout 2019 season, during which he posted a 3.60 ERA and 1.14 WHIP while walking just 38 batters across 155 innings.

For 2021: Means is risky flyer in 12 person or deep leagues to actually rely on, the great news is that his velocity has proven to be up.

Alex Cobb: 32 R 6’3” 2020 notes

Really highGB rate guy. Only 2 games started last year. SO to Walk rate 3% higher vs. lefties so higher SO higher there as he completed a simulated game Inmarch, . Cobb developed a blister earlier in the week that resulted in him being scratched from his scheduled Grapefruit League outing, but his ability to face hitters in a controlled setting implies that the affected finger isn’t much of a concern. should be completed healed by the time the Orioles reconvene for workouts.

For 2021: His ERA has risen, but he can be consistent around 3.5 ERA from prior years with other clubs.

Keegan Aiken 

For 2021: After a rough rookie outing allowing about %50 hard contact showed his inconsistencies to exploit for and offensive standpoint. Not sure he’s worth a look even as a 4th starter.
