  • Orioles' Adley Rutschman: On doorstep of majors

    Rutschman hit .314/.411/.525 with four homers, 16 RBI, 19 runs and 19:24 BB:K across 33 games for Triple-A Norfolk after being promoted in August.

    The minor-league season is now over, and it was a strong one for the 2019 draft's No. 1 pick. His composite line for the season: .283/.398/.513 with 22 homers and a 74:81 BBB:K. At this point, there's no doubt that Rutschman is ready for the majors, with his power and plate discipline putting him in strong position to make an instant impact. The only question is whether he'll break camp with the O's next year or get held back for some more Triple-A action in an attempt to manipulate his service time -- although that may become a moot point depending on what happens in baseball's ongoing collective-bargaining negotiations. Either way, there's not much standing in front of Rutschman's ascendance.

  • Orioles' Adley Rutschman: Promoted to Triple-A

    Rutschman was promoted to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    Rutschman appeared in 80 games at Double-A Bowie to begin the year, and he slashed .271/.392/.508 with 18 homers, 61 runs, 55 RBI and a stolen base. The 23-year-old will test his skills against the top level of minor-league talent, and he'll be in the mix for a late-season debut in the big leagues if he performs well at Triple-A Norfolk.

  • Orioles' Adley Rutschman: Seven-RBI day at Double-A

    Rutschman went 3-for-5 with two homers, a double, a walk and seven RBI in Double-A Bowie's 20-7 win against Hartford on Wednesday.

    He'd been in a bit of a slump, having hit .154 with no homers over his past seven games, but Rutschman got right in this one, albeit against a couple pitchers who are nothing more than organizational depth. His overall line of .275/.399/.504 is excellent, and it'd be even better if not for some unfortunate BABIP luck. With a 46:46 BB:K, Rutschman has controlled the strike zone as impressively as any prospect in the minors, and a promotion to Triple-A could be in the offing soon as he continues climbing the organizational ladder toward Baltimore.

  • Orioles' Adley Rutschman: Catches fire over weekend

    Rutschman went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a double, two walks and two runs Sunday in Double-A Bowie's 13-11 loss to Hartford.

    Following a huge weekend in which he went 6-for-12 with four extra-base hits (two home runs, two doubles) and two walks over three games, Rutschman now maintains a 1.036 OPS through his first month at Double-A. The 23-year-old's bat certainly looks like it could be MLB-ready, but the Orioles will likely want to see him show more growth as a defender behind the dish before his promotion is seriously considered. A 2022 MLB debut still seems like the most realistic outcome for Rutschman.

  • Orioles' Adley Rutschman: Won't debut until late in season

    Rutschman isn't expected to make his major-league debut until late in 2021, Joe Trezza of reports.

    Rutschman was assigned to Double-A, which indicates that he's likely a few months away from making his major-league debut. A top catching prospect, Rutschman is a name for fantasy managers to keep an eye on. The 23-year-old spent all of 2020 at the alternate training site. For now, Chance Sisco and Pedro Severino will handle the Orioles' catching duties.
