How the O’s teach English as a second language to young Latin players

There were obstacles to overcome along the way.

“Some of our players have to go to a neighbor’s house just to get on their wifi and take their online class,” she said. “Many of our players prefer having a one-on-one interaction via Zoom and then studying on their own. The fact of trying to reach diverse learners with diverse learning skill sets and trying to bring that in through Zoom is difficult, but not impossible.

“As the weeks have passed, they feel much more comfortable. They are able to create their own Zoom calls and use online tools to create projects for their classes. We have to recognize those guys with their effort. At the end of the day they did it because they understood that it was good for their language learning. They were thrilled to improve this summer.”

Garcia tried to limit some meetings to no more than 12.

“Our players understand they are not passive learners in this process,” she said. “I want to hear you say something. Put it to practice, and the more you practice it, the better it will be for your language-acquisition process.”

Mets Acquire Miguel Castro From Orioles

The New York Mets swung another deal just before the trade deadline, acquiring Miguel Castro from the Orioles, per MLB Network’s Jon Heyman (via Twitter). The Orioles will receive southpaw Kevin Smith, per Robert Murray (via Twitter). In addition, the Mets will be sending a player to be named later or cash to Baltimore, per Mark Feinsand of MLB.com.

The Mets completed a flurry of deals at the last minute, also acquiring catcher Robinson Chirinos and third baseman Todd Frazier from the Rangers. In Castro, the Mets are getting another power arm from the right side to help out late in games. The 25-year-old owns a 4.02 ERA/3.71 FIP across 16 appearances this season. He strikeout to walk numbers have blown up in the 15 2/3 innings he’s logged this year with 13.8 K/9 to 2.9 BB/9. Those numbers are far better than his career norms, so at least some regression is to be expected. With just another month to go in the season, the Mets are betting the overall profile holds up.

Orioles trade reliever Mychal Givens to Rockies for pair of prospects, PTBNL in second deal of day

The Orioles continued to shed talent from their major league roster Sunday, sending right-handed reliever Mychal Givens to the Colorado Rockies in their second trade on the last full day before the trade deadline.

The Orioles acquired prospects Tyler Nevin and Terrin Vavra plus a player to be named later, the team announced. Nevin, 23, a first-round pick (38th overall) by the Rockies in 2015 and the son of former major leaguer Phil Nevin, has a career .286/.362/.441 in five minor league seasons playing first base, third base and left field.

It’s Time To Talk About the Orioles

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic forcing Major League Baseball to punt on 63% of its scheduled regular season, we knew there would be a greater chance of someone catching lightning in a bottle and surging forward in the playoff hunt beyond where anyone could have expected. The most extreme example of this was always the idea of the Orioles — baseball’s worst team, forced to play its entire schedule against arguably the two best divisions in the sport — somehow sneaking into the race.

Every day we inch closer to that becoming reality. We projected them to finish 21-39; after winning seven of their last nine games against the Phillies and the defending champion Nationals, they have started the season 12-9, third place in the AL East and three games behind the Yankees. They’ve increased their playoff odds from 1.4% before the season to 21.8% today.

How we got to this point — where a season is more than one-third completed and the Baltimore freaking Orioles are a more realistic playoff team than the one that has Mike Trout, Anthony Rendon, and Shohei Ohtani — has required a lot of things happening that, respectfully, have nothing to do with the Orioles. It takes a global crisis shortening the season to 60 games. It takes a division rival choosing to ship its star player across the country instead of trying to contend. It takes a bunch of the other teams on your schedule getting a slow start out of the gate and playing below expectations.

That said, it also does have a lot to do with the Orioles. A year after they had baseball’s worst pitching staff by any definition you could come up with, they stand a more-respectable 20th in team ERA and downright-decent 12th in team FIP. Tommy Milone and Alex Cobb have looked mostly solid in the rotation, and Travis Lakins, Tanner Scott, Mychal Givens, and Shawn Armstrong have been exceptional out of the ‘pen.

Orioles trade reliever Richard Bleier to Marlins for player to be named

Orioles left-hander Richard Bleier sat in the bullpen during Friday’s 6-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays and couldn’t figure out why he wasn’t one of the five men called on to help protect his team’s lead.

After the game, executive vice president/general manager Mike Elias told him why: He was traded to the Miami Marlins for a player to be named later.

“Definitely surprised,” Bleier said. “Extremely thankful for Baltimore, the organization and everything they’ve done for the last few years for me. They gave me an extended opportunity in the big leagues and really gave me another opportunity coming off a down year to kind of get back to the status I was at before. It’s been a really enjoyable ride here in Baltimore, and I’m very, very thankful for that.

Gary Thorne, Jim Palmer, others won’t be at Camden Yards for broadcasts as Orioles limit in-person announce teams

Gary Thorne and Jim Palmer, who primarily filled the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN) lead play-by-play and analyst roles for over a decade together, are among several longtime broadcast voices who won’t be part of the reduced in-person group of broadcasters for the shortened 2020 season because of COVID-19 concerns, according to team sources who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter….

Palmer and Rick Dempsey could be on the broadcasts via Zoom. Same goes for Brian Roberts and Gregg Olsen, all of whom aren’t based in Baltimore and would have to fly to get to the ballpark for in-person assignments. It’s unclear whether Thorne will participate in those Zoom segments.

Brady Anderson: Matusz is ‘a different human’

HALF-MAN, HALF-BEAST…BUT ALL ORIOLE!

Half

Orioles Hall of Famer Brady Anderson, making his first appearance since being appointed special assistant to executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette, said today at FanFest that the difference between Brian Matusz a year ago at this time and Brian Matusz today is the difference between night and day.

“He’s like a different human as far as his mentality and his dedication and the raw numbers, what type of athlete he is, he’s not the same,’’ Anderson said of the left-hander.

...Also, if you’re not strong mechanically, you’re going to break down. Think about what they do for a living. Think about what pro athletes do for a living. You can’t do average things and expect to be extraordinary.”
“You’re asking a guy who’s 6-2, 190 pounds who throws the ball 190 miles per hour. You’re talking about very, very elite people and you train like an elite athlete.”

Camden Depot: Rick Peterson Breaks Fewer Pitchers?

Jon Shepherd takes a first look at Rick Peterson’s record in keeping pitchers off the disabled list.

Rick Peterson and his pitching lab will apparently be in full effect for the Orioles in 2012.  His analytical technique has been hailed as a major prevention tool against injuries.  I have disabled list numbers of starting pitchers from part of his tenure with the A’s and all of his tenure with the Mets, giving us a time line from 2001 to 2007.  I also have disabled numbers of Orioles’ starting pitchers in 2009 and 2010.

[Wei-Yin] Chen gives Orioles left-handed starter

I didn’t see an NMA animation for this, unfortunately :-(

In the latest move of the ongoing effort to stabilize their starting rotation, the Orioles officially signed left-hander Wei-Yin Chen out of Taiwan on Tuesday, agreeing to a three-year contract that includes a club option for 2015…

“It’s a unique situation based upon his age, the fact that he’s left-handed, our need and the acquisition cost was really [just] the cost of the contract,” Duquette said of Chen, who was not subject to a posting fee because he was released by the Chunichi Dragons…

Chen spent the past four years with the Dragons in Japan’s Central League, going 38-30 with a 2.48 ERA in 117 games (88 starts). The lefty posted a 2.68 ERA in 25 appearances last season and will be the first Taiwanese-born player in Orioles history, as Duquette, who also signed Japanese pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada earlier this offseason, continues to ramp up the organization’s international efforts.

Chen works off a fastball that routinely clocks in between 92-94 mph, and he is lauded for his exceptional command and use of a “slurve-like” breaking ball for his out pitch. His signing, coupled with Wada and the club’s trade for Dana Eveland, gives the O’s depth at the starting pitching position, fostering competition among their young hurlers and ensuring that setup man Jim Johnson will remain in the bullpen… While Wada could also be moved to the bullpen depending on what happens in camp, Chen figures to be solely used as a starter.

Former Oriole Luke Scott signs one-year deal with Tampa Bay

Luke Scott: Rebirtherr.

Luke Scott, the outspoken, energetic slugger who spent four seasons in Baltimore and was named the 2010 Most Valuable Oriole, has agreed to a one-year deal with the division-rival Tampa Bay Rays that includes a 2013 option, according to an industry source.

Exact terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

Scott, 33, was in his final year of arbitration after making $6.4 million in an injury-marred 2011 that ended in July, when he decided to have season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. In December, the Orioles decided not to tender him a contract—he would have made at least $6 million and likely more—and allowed him to become a free agent.

There was talk that the club wanted him back on a lesser deal, but the Orioles never made a push this offseason to re-sign him.

Angelos is now on his eighth different GM since buying the Orioles 18 years ago. MacPhail lasted the longest, at four and a half years. Before him, Angelos ran off baseball icon Roland Hemond, who left after the 1995 season; Hall of Famer Pat Gillick, who fled after 1998 despite making the AL Championship Series twice in three years; Frank Wren, who lasted only one season and has found success as GM of the Braves; Syd Thrift, a recycling experiment similar to Duquette that lasted three years; and Jim Beattie and Mike Flanagan, who served as a two-headed GM for three years before Flanagan did a year and a half on his own.

Angelos has done a poor job of creating a unified baseball operation pulling in the same direction toward a shared goal, instead fostering an atmosphere where departments seem to function as autonomous units. Duquette, of course, pledges to change that. Empty promises have remained one of the few constants with the Orioles during the last 14 years.

Rafael Palmeiro to the Hall of Fame: Let voters handle steroid issue

Rafael House: The first shelter for the HOF-less.

The 2013 ballot is expected to be a more accurate barometer of how the Steroid Era will be viewed comparatively to baseball history. Palmeiro acknowledges he’ll be curious, too.

“Next year, I think, will be the telling story about what all this means. It’s going to be interesting,” Palmeiro said. “You have guys that were all-time greats, and so we’ll see how the voters are going to look at all of us. The guys [newly eligible] next year will give us a better indication what the future holds for all of us, I guess.”

...“I am not sure what to make of that. I was surprised about Juan Gonzalez, that he totally dropped off the ballot,” Palmeiro said. “I think what McGwire did for baseball—going for the [season] home run record—I think he was one of the great players of our time. It’s just hard to see something like that happen to him, and for myself, for that matter. We’ll have to see what happens next year, whether I go up or down. I don’t have a clear picture of what the future holds, what it’ll mean for me.”

For his part, Palmeiro said he watched the Hall of Fame telecast Monday but wasn’t expecting a change in fortune from 2011.

“I didn’t really watch it that closely this time around. Obviously, I am disappointed again, but it is what it is. It is tough to think [87 percent] of the writers are not seeing me as a Hall of Famer,” Palmeiro, 47, said. “Maybe they will one day, I don’t know. At the rate that it is going, if it happens at all—and it may not – it looks like it will happen when I am an old man.”

Murray Chass: NO TWO SIDES TO AN MLB.COM SELIG STORY and MORRIS UNLIKELY TO MAKE IT

Murray Sez… have a Bud and a Jack chaser

When I left The New York Times in 2008 after having written for the newspaper for 39 years, the first offer I received to continue writing came from a high-ranking Major League Baseball official who was in position to offer me a job as a columnist with MLB.com. My initial reaction was to say no, but some people urged me to reconsider and at least talk about and consider that possibility.

Accepting that offer would have turned out to be more economically lucrative than what I have done with this Web site the past three and a half years. But money isn’t everything. Writing for MLB.com just didn’t seem like the right thing to do.

How could I have gone to work for the organization I had spent my professional life covering? Wouldn’t I be compromising my professional ethics by accepting a salary from people I would be in position to criticize and question if necessary? ...

To be sure, MLB.com serves a purpose, even for baseball writers, for whom it can serve as a 30-team research site in one location and a source of comprehensive statistics that are not mingled with WAR and VORP and all of those other metrics, as their advocates like to call them.

But then there are the self-congratulatory articles that can induce nausea. I guess we don’t have to read them, but they are there as propaganda for fans to see and be taken in by. Yes, baseball propaganda. I had never thought about it before this moment, but that’s what it is. ...

And maybe someday, perhaps when he retires, whenever that is, Selig will be big enough to allow an MLB.com columnist to write the truth about collusion and his role in the labor wars.

By the way, this column was not subject to the approval of Major League Baseball or its clubs.

Based on e-mail I have received from critics of Morris and me, the Hall of Fame should take the vote away from baseball writers and simply establish statistical guidelines for players’ election. The players over the line make it, those under don’t.

Such a system would eliminate what is perhaps the greatest debate in sports, but that wouldn’t bother the stats zealots. Their numbers tell them who should be in the Hall of Fame, and the writers would be wrong if they disagreed.

That system would also eliminate the aspect of the voting that they hate most. Their opinion doesn’t mean beans. The writers’ opinion means everything.

Former long-time Oriole Melvin Mora announces retirement

Melvin’s salud of a thousand delights!

According to a report out of Venezuela, former long-time Oriole Melvin Mora announced his retirement from Major League Baseball on Thursday while in his home country.

Mora, who will turn 40 in February, was released by the Arizona Diamondbacks last June after hitting .228 in 127 at-bats for the Diamondbacks. He said earlier this winter that he wanted to play again if he could find the right opportunity, but apparently that did not happen.

Mora was traded to the Orioles by the New York Mets in July 2000 as part of then-GM Syd Thrift’s fire sale. He played for the Orioles for the next 9 ½ seasons spanning 1,256 of his 1,556 career games. He made two all-star teams for the Orioles and, in 2004, batted .340 with 27 homers and won a Silver Slugger and Most Valuable Oriole honors.

MASN: Duquette on Prince Fielder: “We’re monitoring the market”

...and we hope to get him in Baltimore during the twilight of his career!

I mentioned that Baseball America projected Ryan Flaherty to be the club’s designated hitter in 2015.

“Flaherty’s a pretty good player,” Duquette said. “He had 20 homers and 30 doubles last season (between Double-A and Triple-A), which speaks to the quality of his bat. That’s a lot of extra-base knocks. I kept hearing that we got a good bat, and that came from some other clubs. And I like that he’s from Maine. Those guys are really dedicated to the game.”

I couldn’t let Duquette off the phone without bring up Prince Fielder’s name again. Heck, everyone else is doing it.

“We’re monitoring the market,” Duquette said. “That’s a good way to put it.”

So to review: The Orioles retain interest in Fielder, but not at his current price. It will have to change dramatically.

They’re not “out,” so they must be “in.” But they shouldn’t be classified as a favorite to sign him at this point.

Orioles make sweeping changes to scouting department

Duquette’s taking an unconventional approach in his scouting department:

Instead of having a professional scouting department, as most organizations do, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette has decided to severely minimize that faction as he emphasizes video evaluation on the pro level and a need for more scouting in the amateur ranks.

The club’s two big league scouts, Bruce Kison and Dave Engle, will continue in their roles. However, the six remaining pro scouts, most of whom who had specific organizations assigned to them, have been offered jobs as amateur scouts, preparing reports on draft-eligible players. That list includes Jim Thrift, who was the Orioles’ advance scout – he would watch and then issue reports on teams the Orioles were about to play – and Lee MacPhail IV, who had been the pro scouting director. He was demoted to pro scout last month. ...

Although it is not unprecedented that an organization would sever much of it pro scouting operation – the Washington Nationals scaled back dramatically a few years ago – it is unusual. But Duquette has shown more of a desire for statistical analysis and will be using more video for scouting purposes.

Can scouting from video replace scouting in person? I’m inclined to think that, like scouts and stats, the tools should be used to complement each other.

There’s also this: Orioles have added economic adviser to help evaluate players.

Stephen Walters, a Loyola University economics professor, is now also working for the Orioles, providing financial and statistical valuations of players to help Duquette make personnel decisions. Walters believes he is the only such adviser employed by a big league team, though, “if [other clubs] have them, they are not talking about them.”

MASN: Lee Thomas on Duquette: “Some people missed the boat on him”

Duke: The Lost Engine of Thomas.

Dan Duquette and Lee Thomas are working together again. Thomas was hired today as a special assistant to the Orioles’ executive vice president of baseball operations.

...Thomas said he has kept some tabs on the Orioles in recent years.

“I guess the last year or two I have, and especially since Buck (Showalter) came over and now even more since Dan came over. I don’t think people know how good Dan Duquette is. I really don’t. I think there is a lot of people out there that missed the boat on him. He and Buck, I think, are going to work great together and if Dan gets him the right players, I think you will see great things happen. I really do believe that,” Thomas said today at the Winter Meetings.

Just how does Thomas feel he will aid Duquette most?

“No. 1 is whatever he wants me to do. I can do a lot of things for him. I can do stuff that maybe he doesn’t have the time to do. I have no problem calling anybody to get things moving for him,” Thomas said.

...Duquette pointed out that Thomas signed Johnny Damon for him when he was with Boston.

“That was one of the last contracts we did and Lee did that contract directly with Scott Boras. That scene in ‘Moneyball,’ where Boras said, ‘I just got off the phone with Dan,’ that’s not true’” Duquette said.
