Flying high off of his “Ubaldo Jimenez will throw a quality start” prediction Wednesday night, Dan Connolly joined me for a video chat to talk through the latest surrounding the Orioles.
Besides Jimenez, Dan and I discuss the pending trade deadline and how the O’s may look to fortify their pitching staff in the coming weeks. Which names on the trade market could interest Dan Duquette, and is the farm system deep enough to land them? Well you’ll just have to tune in to see us banter on the subject.
The rise of Jonathan Schoop concludes our discussion, as the second baseman is in the midst of producing a .333/.384/.577 slash line in June. After batting third for the first time in his career on Wednesday, just how high is the 24-year-old’s ceiling? Dan sheds some light by recounting how multiple scouts evaluated him in the minors.
Dan also predicts that you’ll love this video, so be sure to watch.
