Uggh, Is anybody doing well at this point.
Most of the "new guys" certainly are off to pretty poor starts. SSS alerts of course, but it sure would've been nice to see 1 or 2 of them hit the ground running here.

(#28) Rylan Bannon, 2B
Bannon had a huge start to his first full pro season last year in the Cal League, slashing .296/.402/.559 before winding up a supplementary piece of the Manny Machado deal. The hitter-friendly environment certainly helped Bannon’s lift-happy contact profile, and while he struggled in Double-A in the O’s system after the trade, it was impressive he was even there as a 2017 draftee. Bannon is a smaller player who hits with a slugger’s approach, generating lots of aerial contact and drawing walks with a long, pull-happy swing that has numerous holes. He can put a charge into the ball for a hitter his size, but there’s still some effort and sell-out required for him to get to the power in games. It’s an interesting offensive profile considering his defensive ability, as Bannon plays a solid 2B and can shift over to 3B in a pinch. We’re conservatively projecting him as a potential bench player, though Bannon has some overachiever traits.
