Of note last night in the O's farm system was Trey Mancini's performance, as he hit his first Triple-A homer. He went 2-for-5 with a double, raising his Triple-A slash line to .250/.362/.425.

 

Given that those numbers have come over 11 games, it's an extremely small sample size. I just have to wonder what the Orioles will do if Mancini performs well at Norfolk, specifically whether he gets a promotion down the stretch or is traded. I think there might be room in the majors for him later this year, particularly if Pedro Alvarez continues to struggle.

My question is essentially what type of prospect is he? Is he legit and if so what is his ceiling of comp?

Big reason why Alvarez only has about a month to get going.

I like Mancini when it comes to hitting for average and getting on-base. The one question that's been in the minds of many is whether his power will translate to the majors. He's seen an uptick in power over the past year, but that might not be a great indicator over the long run.

When you consider that he's a first baseman, it makes Mancini a little harder to project. I still see him in the majors at some point, and best-case scenario the power could continue to develop as it has.

Same boat as Walker really. As a 1B only, you've got to have one HECK of a bat to stick. A lot of guys like this end up as tweeners, where you either want to move another high level bat to 1B to cover for the defense, or you have a LEGIT power bat to stash there already and these guys get moved to the OF, or sometimes as a DH. It's pretty rare to see a young guy get spotted as a DH and stick there though, either they change positions, or get bounced out of the league for a more veteran bat that needs hidden from the field.

 

I'd like to see more teams play these guys for the average and OBP and find more power in other positions, unfortunately you just don't see it happen often because of the number of one dimensional guys that have elite bats and can't catch a cold.

I wonder if his bat being slightly better than Nolan Reimold is the right comp for Mancini.  Better average and a bit better isolated power but a bit lower ability to draw walks.

 

Both are listed at 6'4", Nolan at 205 lb and Mancini at 215.  As a 23-24 y/o at Bowie in 2007-2008, Nolan had roughly a 290/366/517/883 slash line in 789 PA.  As a 23-24 in Bowie, Mancini has had a 350/399/604/1003 slash line in 429 PA.

 

It's a completely meaninglessly small sample (though certainly meaningful enough to give me some strong confirmation bias for this comparison), but Mancini's slash line during his first couple weeks in Norfolk (278/361/444/805) looks very Nolan-esque with just a tiny bit more power and tiny bit fewer walks.  For his career at AAA (which is exclusively at older ages than Mancini is now), Nolan has slashed 274/375/431/806.

 Ive been fooled before by AA performances. Granted, by older players like Urruita and Alvarez. I don't have a feeling about Mancini one way or the other right now.

A lot of Ks but otherwise, a solid season for him.

He both walked and struck out a lot more this year than he had in previous stops.

K rate isn't alarming even at this year's higher rate, and the walk rate is now solid.

Don't think he's a guy you hand a job, but he's worth a look in ST if nothing falls in our lap at DH this offseason.

Three HRs in his first four games. 

 

Do we upgrade him to the ML player section?

Trey Mancini has now hit 5 homers as an Oriole in 10 games and 29 plate appearances.

All 6 of his ML hits are XBH. The other was a double.

It may be time to give Mancini and extended run.

 

He has a quick swing and seems patient at the plate.

 

Not sure if he can cut it in the OF, but there is only one way to find out.

Not quite sure what I was looking at. Mancini is 9 for 29 in the majors. 5 HR, 2 doubles, 2 singles. Nice slugging %. That was the point I was attempting to make.

He definitely has a solid approach at the plate. Impressive for a hitter with 30 ML ABs

I really think this guy could be a poor man's JD Martinez ( lower OBP).  His bat is incredibly quick along with his reactions, he's balanced with his head on the ball, and he's aggressive in the zone. 

If this is for real, the O's will have a solid bat for the OF through the early part of his prime years.

I'm surprised how relatively low his minor league walk rate (~6.6%) compared to the way he approaches at bats in the time we've seen him in Baltimore and how patiently he waits for good pitches to hit.

 

Looking more closely, though, he upped his walk rate to 8.3% in '15-16 once he reached AA and AAA.  Prior to that at A+ and lower it was only 5.2%, so perhaps that's something he's developed.  Kid certainly looks like he belongs at the plate.  If he can work himself into a passable corner OF that'll be huge for us this year and into the future.

He showed me a relatively decent arm last night.
