I've talked about David Hess in a few posts here - but I did a write up for 2080 on him from his first start in Bowie.

David Hess – RHP
After 30 or so innings in 2014, Hess put together a solid first full professional season in 2015. Hess, selected in the 5th round of the 2014 MLB Draft, split time between Frederick (A+) and Bowie (AA). Hess offers a four-seam fastball (91-94 mph – can top 96), a change-up (85-87 mph), a slider (80-83 mph) and a curveball (72-76 mph). He has a lot of effort with his delivery and can use his fastball to get hitters out. He was also working on a two-seam fastball during the end of the ’15 season. Mechanics and delivery have improved from month to month, as he pitches from the 3/4 arm slot. Out of his three secondary pitches, the slider and change-up are the primary out pitches. The slider has become less “loopy” and gained more tilt and downward action as the season went on. He’s become comfortable throwing the slider in early counts. The change-up lacks deception, but still gives a solid offering from the fastball. The curveball is typically a “get me over” pitch, but doesn’t have real effectiveness (12-6 with minimal spin). The command on all his secondary pitches is improving and he’s able to replicate the same arm motion on all three secondary offerings.

 

Going Forward: Hess will need to show that he can continue to challenge hitters at the higher level. Instead of relying on a fastball 80-90% of the time, he will need to mix things up with off-speed pitches. Unless the curveball is able to be sharpened up, it should be removed from his arsenal. The biggest challenge will be pitch sequencing. If he’s able to continue and use all pitches for strikes, he will continue to be in the rotation. If some of the secondary pitches don’t develop, he could see a move to the bullpen. He’ll likely begin the season with Bowie (AA).

It’s pathetic how often they make a move.

At some point, the Orioles will have to make tough decisions on Wright and Tillman.

 

Hess may get a shot sooner rather than later.

 

I am guessing an outfielder gets the call tomorrow.

Buck said David Hess candidate for rotation with a good start today. Team doesn't have to send him down just because he's 26th man today. Hess' family is here to watch his debut #orioles

Can''t say I was overly impressed (nor was I unimpressed) but he threw strikes, showed decent command and didn't pitch scared. Stuff isn't horrible. Maybe a decent back end guy.

Better than Tillman.

I was fine with Tillman to start, but yeah, the more prospects we have ready to go, the better for me.

He's not terrible. I do think they need to rework that curveball. That's just not gonna fly at the Ml level.

Yea, I think he could become a good middle to short reliever  

 

I think he will probably head to Norfolk tomorrow, but that could be short lived.

The CU looks better, but I think I saw one CH? Going to be pretty tough as a starter if you rely mainly on two pitches.

I think you run with him and see if he figures in your future plans. If he can perfect a third pitch, you might have something special.
