Eight Orioles to play for Scottsdale in Arizona Fall League

The Orioles are well represented on the 2010 roster of the Scottsdale Scorpions in the Arizona Fall League.

Representing the club are infielders Ryan Adams (23), Greg Miclat (23) and Tyler Townsend (22), catcher Caleb Joseph (24) and pitchers Kam Mickolio (26), Wynn Pelzer (24), Oliver Drake (23) and Pat Egan (25).

Single-A Frederick pitching coach Blaine Beatty will also serve as the pitching coach for the Scorpions.

The Orioles are also expected to send an outfielder to the Arizona Fall League, but that players apparently hasn't been deterimined. Xavier Avery would seem to be a logical choice, but we shall see.

These stats should be pretty accurate:

Miclat, highest OBP in the O's minors (maybe Mahoney);

Adams, most doubles and highest BA in the O's minors;

Townsend, highest SLG in the O's minors (Mahoney close);

Also, Beato lowest ERA, most saves;

Britton and Tillman most w's;

Britton most k's;

Waring most strikeouts;

but I digress. It's great to see some of these guys making names for themselves.

How bout most saves-Sarfate
most K's vs inings pitched-Sarfate

Townsend and Mahoney both have great swings, I've seen them. All they need is more ABs.

greg miclat looks like a sure thing to make it to the bigs. what a nice young man. I enjoy watching him play!

About the bloggers
A Baltimore native, Dan Connolly has been covering sports for 14 years, and baseball and the Orioles for 10 seasons, including the past six with The Sun. His first year covering baseball on a daily basis was Cal Ripken Jr.'s final season as a player. It's believed that is just a coincidence.

Steve Gould is an assistant sports editor for The Sun, overseeing Orioles coverage. The Columbia native joined The Sun as a sports copy editor in 2006 after graduating from the University of Maryland.

Peter Schmuck has been covering baseball for a lot longer than Steve Gould has been on this earth. He is now a general sports columnist, but has been a beat writer covering three major league teams (the Dodgers, Angels and Orioles) and also spent a decade as the Sun's national baseball writer. If you want more of his insight on the Orioles and other sports issues, check out his personal blog -- The Schmuck Stops Here.
