There are signs that the Miami native may still live up to the hype he once had as a highly touted prospect."WhiteFanposts Sections News & RumorsAnalysisPodcastsProspects & DraftGame CoverageFull ArchiveMasthead Social Marlins Players on TwitterFish Stripes on InstagramMarlins Media Members Fish Stripes Best of 2018 Marlins StoriesScheduleRosterStatsCommunity Guidelines StubHub 鉁昅iami Marlins Analysis2019 Marlins Season Preview2019 Marlins Season Preview: Peter O’BrienNew Duane Kuiper Jersey ,7commentsThere are signs that the Miami native may still live up to the hype he once had as a highly touted prospect.ESTShareTweetShareShare2019 Marlins Season Preview: Peter O’BrienVia Marlins/TwitterThe Marlins projected Opening Day right fielder, Peter O’Brien is the definition of “Miami through and through.” He was born and raised in South Florida, the son of a Cuban refugee with an amazing story in her own right. The slugger played baseball locally prior to making a name for himself at Bethune-Cookman College, eventually transferring to the University of Miami for his senior year.Seven years after signing with the New York Yankees as a second-round draft pick, O’Brien finally has an opportunity to seize consistent MLB playing time. It just so happens that the opportunity comes with the team he grew up rooting for. How did he get here? Purchased from the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 1, 20182018 MLB Stats: .273/.338/.530, 4 HR, 10 RBI, 142 OPS+ in 22 G2019 ZiPS Projections: .193/.266/.390, 21 HR, 57 RBI , 79 OPS+ in 121 GO’Brien was visible in the community throughout the offseason, doing interviews with local news outlets like WPLG Local 10 to spread enthusiasm about the Marlins rebuild.Photo by @WillManso/TwitterIn O’Brien, the Marlins do not simply envision an anonymous stopgap to fill the first base/corner outfield void until a “real” prospect is ready. They are still intrigued by the ceiling he originally had when entering the pros in 2012. Over a three-year span in the Diamondbacks, Dodgers, Royals, and Rangers organizations, O’Brien’s strikeout rate was comically high. He generally stayed in the 35%-40% range with an occasional dip below 30%. To put that in perspective, MLB position players combined for a 21.7 K% last season.However, with the Marlins organization in 2018, O’Brien consistently maintained a K% below 30%, including a 29.7 K% following his call-up. We saw the same encouraging progression from him in terms of walk rate. After floating around a 7 BB% for most of his career Derek Holland Jersey , O’Brien surged to a 16.1 BB%, 14.8 BB% and 9.5 BB% with Double-A Jacksonville, Triple-A New Orleans and the Marlins, respectively.Here is O’Brien’s improved plate approach, visualized:Left: Pre- 2018 Right: 2018 (Marlins)Via BrooksBaseball.netWhen previously in the majors with the Dbacks in 2016, O’Brien was swinging at 45.6% of pitches that were outside the strike zone. That willingness to expand the zone is a pitcher’s fantasy. O’Brien frequently put himself in unfavorable counts, situations where he’d need to take defensive swings to keep plate appearances alive, meanwhile sacrificing the power potential that makes him special.O’Brien trimmed that chase rate all the way down to 25.8% in 2018. His contact rate also sky-rocketed from 59.6% in 2016 to 71.8% with Miami. This combination of plate discipline and coordination understandably led to great results. O’Brien hit a home run every 16.4 at-bats once being promoted to the big league club. Among all Marlins returning from that roster, only Brian Anderson (10.1 Offensive Runs Above Average) contributed more offensive value during the season than the Hialeah native did (2.7), according to Fangraphs.O’Brien is years removed from trying to develop as a catcher; his bat and versatility will make or break his major league career. He spent more than 90 percent of his defensive innings with the Marlins last season as a first baseman, though Don Mattingly plans to get him playing time in right field moving forward. Veterans Neil Walker and Mart铆n Prado have reduced mobility at their relatively advanced ages , so O’Brien is being displaced to accommodate them.Did Peter O’Brien, at age 28, suddenly put it together? It would certainly make him a late bloomer by today’s standards, but the recent changes in his approach have all been encouraging (though over a limited sample size).No question, the 2019 season will go a long way toward determining the rest of O’Brien’s career. Unleashing the impact talent buried deep inside of him on a regular basis would also be a big victory for the Marlins player development staff. Succeeding with reclamation projects like this is necessary to complement their existing core and exceed the industry’s expectations. Today’s selection was brought to you around fluffy interference."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Diamondbacks Farm TeamsGameday ThreadsDiamondbacks NewsDiamondbacks Game ReportsFang FoodSnake or another, the sense you get from baseball's managers is that the move back toward a collectively more holistic approach to hitting is already underway. For example, the Cardinals took off last season when new manager Mike Shildt began to refocus his club's hitters on a more contact-oriented, use-all-fields approach, a change that St. Louis is pushing to perpetuate during the offseason. Still, it remains to be seen how quickly this recognition of the need for countershift strategies can take hold to the degree that the raw number of shifts begin to trend downward.[Wikipedia] Phantom ballplayer - A phantom ballplayer is either a baseball player who is incorrectly listed in source materials as playing in a Major League Baseball (MLB) game, or a player who spent time on an MLB active roster without ever appearing in an MLB contest during his career. A modern-day phantom ballplayer is generally caused by the player being removed from the active roster by a subsequent action (such as being optioned to a minor league team) or the team reaching the end of their season , and the player not having later opportunity to play in a major league game. Many of these phantom players were September call-ups in backup roles.[SI] Bryce Harper is no easy sell for agent Scott Boras - Let it be recorded that when Scott Boras made his annual winter meetings performance art Wednesday, this time to argue that Bryce Harper is such a great investment he “will pay for himself”, he stood not on a soap box but an equipment box for a Washington television station. It was an unintended master stroke for the Maestro of Metaphor... Boras ascribed to Harper leaps made by the Washington Nationals in his years there in attendance, viewership and franchise value.And, finally, on a personal note, can I get a “Hell, yeah”?#TeamMothra #AllAboutTheLepidoptera
