Minor Leaguers on the Rise


Life of a Minor Leaguer can be hard with numerous players likely to not make it to the next level. However, there are a number of players that get to that next level and thrive in the Major Leagues. Before they get there though, they must thrive in the Minors posting terrific numbers both with their bat and with their glove. In Minor League Baseball, each player has to play every game, every inning, and even every pitch like it is his last because they know management in the Majors is watching them.

There are five position players in the Baltimore Orioles farm system, as of late, that best exemplify this and are on the rise in Minor League Baseball.

Mike Yastrzemski (Delmarva Shorebirds)

  • hitting .301/.371/.524
  • batting .275 with runners in scoring position
  • 34 RBI’s
  • 26 extra base hits
  • 6 home runs
  • 8 triples
  • .969 fielding percentage at third base

Trey Mancini (Delmarva Shorebirds)

  • hitting .318/.359/.396
  • batting .385 with runners in scoring position
  • 33 RBI’s
  • 13 extra base hits
  • 1 home run
  • .992 fielding percentage at first base

Christian Walker (Bowie Baysox)

  • hitting .319/.383/.574
  • batting .322 with runners in scoring position
  • 47 RBI’s
  • 24 extra base hits
  • 15 home runs
  • .987 fielding percentage at first base

Niuman Romero (Bowie Baysox)

  • hitting .349/.449/.457
  • batting .359 with runners in scoring position
  • 22 RBI’s
  • 15 extra base hits
  • 2 home runs
  • .957 fielding percentage at shortstop

Quintin Berry (Norfolk Tides)

  • hitting .305/.384/.440
  • batting .303 with runners in scoring position
  • 13 RBI’s
  • 12 extra base hits
  • 3 home runs
  • 1.000 fielding percentage in left field

If these five players continue to post numbers like these, they will surely keep rising in the Orioles’ farm system and eventually make it to the show.
