Bowie - 4-3 L
Gausman - 3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 BB, 5 K, 2:1 GB:FO
Schoop - 1-3, BB, K
Will Bundy pitch game 5 if necessary?
They haven't pitched him on regular rest all season, so I doubt it.
Bowie - 2-1 L
Schoop - 0-4, 2 K
Bowie - 5-2 L
Schrader - 2 IP, 1 ER, 2 H, 1 BB, 5 K
Schoop - 0-3, K
Come on Bowie! It would be great to see them win the championship and get these young guys even more playing time.
Bowie's season is now over. Still wouldn't shock me to see Bundy join the Orioles soon.
At least Bowie held on long enough to get this thread to 100 pages.
I think I'd be a little surprised. What was Bundy's final inning count (about 120-130?). Would make him a Strasburg candidate next year if he makes the team out of spring traning.
Oh, lol. I thought that was Game 4. Might as well bring up Bundy.
Bundy finished the year at 103.2.
I don't think he makes the OD roster next year. You'll likely see something similar to this year where he starts at Norfolk making 3 inning starts and slowly, though not as slowly as this year, stretching him out so that he can have all restrictions off for the stretch run.
This. That way we don't have a Strasburg situation in September and October of next year.
Bundy has May/June call-up written all over him for next year. Start with a slow build again, get him comfortable, then call him up when you can manage his innings without needing to shut him down.
I wonder if Gausman has any chance of a call up next year? My guess would be no because we are likely to have a ton of starting pitching depth and a good amount of talent, plus he could probably use a full season between Bowie and Norfolk.
Absolutely he has a chance. The fact that he was at least briefly considered for a call-up this year should tell you that.
We've gotten very aggressive in our pitching promotions which I'm not necessarily thrilled by. If we're contending next year, and Gausman is healthy, I'd be shocked if he's not up in September.
I have no problem with how pitchers are being promoted.

Too high on Avery, too low on Hoes.
Not the best list. I'm lower on Davis, Avery, Esposito and Bridwell. Higher on Hoes, Wright.
#Orioles Robbie Widlansky, who hit .316/.404/.446 at Bowie in 2012, is playing for Isreal in WBC qualifiers.
Also, #Orioles minor leaguers Antoan Richardson and Steven Bumbry will represent Great Britain in WBC qualifiers next week.
I would think Schoop would make the Dutch roster but I'm not sure if the AFL interferes with that or not.
Just a final thank you to jsh for religiously updating this and keeping us all in the know. Much appreciated.
Here here! Much appreciated jsh and his occasional fill in.
That list is awful. Esposito is way too high and Wright is entirely too low. Also, why is Machado still on there? He doesn't count anymore.
That list is pretty depressing. It's sad Delmonico is so high. We need to have some players come out of nowhere and become players for us and have a great draft next year. It would help if Hobgood, Klein and Erbe can all bounce back.
Top 20 prospect lists are coming out for each league on BA over the next two weeks. The GCL list came out yesterday and zero O's made the list.
BP did write up a short report on Adrian Marin.
The third-round pick in this year’s draft has a package of tools that show a combination of projection and polish. Marin’s quick hands accentuate his swing, and he's able to pull them inside the ball fluidly to barrel offerings up on a line. Despite a lean build, there’s some strength behind his swing to produce solid backspin and drive balls into both gaps. He’s an excellent fastball hitter but, as expected at this stage of his career, is below-average when it comes to handling secondary offerings. Marin needs to incorporate his lower half into his swing mechanics better; he presently relies on his upper body too much, causing some trouble adjusting to the path of breaking balls. Although scouting opinions are mixed, the Orioles feel Marin profiles as a shortstop defensively and are going to give him every chance to stick. He’s athletic with quick twitch reactions, average-to-solid-average present arm strength, and doesn’t look likely to outgrow the position. Given the speed and overall defensive ability, he could slide over to second base or out to center field if necessary.
Time for instructional leagues, and time for a number of players to take a step or two forward. - Keywords: scouting, prospects, minor league baseball
