Touch’em All 2012 | Baltimore Orioles Pitching Report

The Baltimore Orioles have the game’s most elite prospect in pitcher in Dylan Bundy.  To say he dominated the South Atlantic League before his recent promotion to the High-A Carolina League would be a massive understatement.  At the Triple-A level for the Orioles, there isn’t a lot to report on as the staff there is mostly retread veterans.  Still, there’s plenty to report on with the Orioles organizational pitching, so let’s get right to it.

Pitching Report

AAA Spotlight

Steve Johnson RHP Norfolk Tides – Age 24 – We talked a bit about Johnson in our International League Touch’em all article recently.  Statistically, he still has the same 1-3 record with a 2.62 ERA and 36/13 K/BB ratio over 44.2 innings since our last report.  He hasn’t pitched since May 19th with a strained groin and is on the minor league 7-day disabled list.  He’s thrown 2 bullpen sessions since the injury, so there’s hope that he will be back soon.  I still believe he will earn a couple major league starts this season.

AA Spotlight

Bobby Bundy RHP Bowie Baysox – Age 22 – In fairness, the 2008 8th round pick is his own pitcher.  He’s not just the older brother of Dylan Bundy.  He had an excellent 2011 season in the Carolina League before being promoted later to the Eastern League.  Bundy is struggling a bit in 2012 with the Baysox, he’s 2-7 with a 5.06 ERA and has a 37/19 K/BB ratio over 53.1 innings.  His K/9 is down a little and his BB/9 is slightly up.  He does tend to cough up homeruns, so the 5 he’s given up isn’t a surprise.  He’s simply allowing too many base runners and once he get’s that in line, his ERA should stabilize.  He has the stuff to be a back of the rotation type pitcher in the majors.

Mike Wright RHP Bowie Baysox – Age 22 – Wright was off to a fine start in the High-A Carolina league in 2012.  He was 5-2 with a 2.91 ERA and had a 35/5 K/BB ratio over 46.1 innings before being promoted to the AA Eastern League.  He took the loss in his Bowie debut on Friday.  He went 6 innings giving up 4 ER on 8 hits.  He struck out 7 and walked none.  The longball did him in, but otherwise a great debut.  The 2011 3rd round pick added a little weight in the off-season to his 6’5″ frame.  Still, at 195 pounds he could add some more meat which would help his durability and overall stuff a lot.  He brings the gas and has been clocked at 98 MPH this season. Most think he will end up as a set up guy in the Dan Klein style, but I think he’s still got a legit shot at becoming a decent starter.  If he’s not on your radar, he should be.

Jacob Pettit LHP Bowie Baysox – Age 25 – Pettit pitched well enough in the SALLY last season to earn a promotion to the Carolina League where he was very good in 2011.  For the season he was 12-4 with a 3.38 ERA and a 106/45 K/BB ratio over 149.1 innings.  He’s 3-0 with a 4.46 ERA and has just a 17/8 K/BB ratio over 34.1 innings on the 2012 season in AA.  His last 3 starts have been ugly.  He’s given up 13 earned runs in the past 11 innings.

Wynn Pelzer RHP Bowie Baysox – Age 25 – Once a promising pitching prospect for the Padres, Pelzer was dealt to the O’s for Miguel Tejada in 2010.  He just wasn’t cutting it as a start for the birds and spent his time in the bullpen in 2012 for Bowie.  He was 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA and had a 4/2 K/BB ratio before being released in April.  He may catch on some place else, but it’s unlikely he will make it to the major league level.

High-A Spotlight

Dylan Bundy RHP Frederick Keys – Age 19 – The folks in Delmarva are sad to see him go, but the ones in Frederick are excited to see the 4th overall pick from the 2011 draft, who we pegged prior to the 2011 draft as the best player in the draft.  He was a stunning 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and had a 40/2 K/BB ratio over in 30 innings in the SALLY.  He gave up just 5 hits along the way, earning a promotion to High-A over the weekend.  He picked up the win in his debut for the Keys, going 5 innings with 6 Ks and 0 BB.  He did give up 2 runs on 6 hits, giving up his 1st professional HR.  A Terrific debut against much better hitters.  It should come as no surprise to anyone that Bundy will be the #1 prospect when our updated Baseball Instinct 360 rolls out.

Kyle Simon RHP Frederick Keys – Age 21 – Simon is 2-6 with a 4.10 ERA and has a 35/14 K/BB ratio over 52.2 innings with the Keys.  The 2011 4th round pick throws from a low 3/4 arm slot and needs to take advantage of that 6’5′ 225 frame by getting his body into his pitches.  Touches 94 mph this season and has good movement on his pitches.  What’s is out of character from last season in his debut and his time at Arizona, he’s not getting the pitches down in the zone as before.  He’s leaving pitches up a little and it’s resulted in 64 hits, 6 of them being HRs.  Once he returns to getting the ball down in the zone, his ERA should stabilize and he’s a guy who could be a #4 or #5 starter in the majors.  Keep an eye on him.

Clayton Schrader RHP Frederick Keys – Age 22 – The 2010 10th round pick has been very good out of the pen since his 2010 debut.  He’s 1-1 with a 0.67 ERA.  He’s got 41 K’s in 26.2 innings but a bothersome 20 BB to go with it.  His BABIP of .245 is low and the fact that he’s given up just 12 hits suggests that his ERA is going to see a spike soon if he doesn’t get the walk total down.  Still, with a 95 MPH fast ball and a good 85-88 MPH slider to go with a curveball that’s being developed, Schrader should find his way into the O’s bullpen as soon as next season.

Trent Howard LHP Frederick Keys – Age 22 – Another 2011 pitching draft pick for the Orioles, Howard was selected in the 7th round.  He started the 2012 season in the bullpen for Delmarva, but after going 2-0 with a 1.93 and a 16/7 K/BB ratio over 23.1 innings he was promoted to Frederick where he is 1-1 with a 3.75 ERA and has a 9/9 K/BB ratio over 12 innings, all as a starter.  He’s got a 92 MPH fastball and a solid changeup.  He’s working on a curveball and a cut-slider.  His delivery is still problematic, but has the chance to develop into a back of the rotation starter or more realistically a Lefty specialist out of the bullpen.

Tyler Wilson RHP Frederick Keys – Age 22 – Wilson is 4-4 with a 4.40 ERA and has a 43/15 K/BB ratio over 47 innings between Delmarva and Frederick.  Selected in the 10th round of the 2011 draft, he was a team-mate of Mariners pitching prospect Danny Hultzen at Virginia.  He’s got a great baseball and overall IQ, his fall back plan is medicine if baseball doesn’t work out.  He throws a 92 MPH fastball and has an average curveball to go with a developing changeup.  He’s got good command and control, but may be better suited out of the bullpen.

Low-A Spotlight 

Parker Bridwell RHP Delmarva Shorebirds – Age 20 – Bridwell made it into our top 100 of 360 prospects in our preseason Baseball Instinct 360 report.  He’s got great stuff but has been erratic at times this season.  He’s 2-3 with a 4.87 ERA with a 29/21 K/BB ratio over 44.1 innings this season.  As with his 2010 seasons, numbers don’t always tell the true story of what’s going on with a pitcher.  Bridwell is making progress and once he has a feel for his pitches and shows better command he will move quickly through the organization.

Tim Berry LHP Delmarva Shorebirds – Age 21 – The 2009 50th round pick is showing signs of improvement in his second go round with the Shorebirds.  He’s brought he BB% down from 15.4% in 2010 to 12.1% in 2011 and now 6.7% in 2012.  He’s 2-6 with a 4.18 ERA and a 42/14 K/BB ratio over 47.1 innings.  His .311 BABIP is 20 points higher than last year and should drop as the season progresses.  He’s a long shot to make it to the majors as a starter, but he’s progressing.

Eduardo Rodriguez LHP Delmarva Shorebirds – Age 19 – The 2010 signee from Venezuela is 1-1 with a 2.43 ERA and has a 24/13 K/BB ratio over 37 innings and 8 starts.  Rodriguez has very smooth arm action and gets good extension out front.  He’s got a 92 MPH fastball that could develop into a plus pitch.  His curve has a sharp bite to and also could develop into a plus pitch.  His changeup is weak, but could develop into at least an average pitch.  There’s a lot of potential here, so keep an eye on him for sure.

Zachary Davies RHP Delmarva Shorebirds – Age 19 – At 6’0′ and 150 pounds, the 2011 26th round pick isn’t exactly the picture of intimidation on the mound.  Having said that his fastball has some movement and touches 90 MPH and has a decent slider and curveball.  His changeup is a work in progress.    His physical development is going to have a huge impact on his ability to progress as a pitcher.  He’s 2-2 with a 4.33 ERA and has a 28/17 K/BB ratio over 35.1 innings on the season.

That’s it for our run down on the season to date performance of the Baltimore Orioles pitchers.  Check back soon for the hitters.
