The Quantity two prospect is Shortstop/ Third baseman Gunnar Henderson. He has been within the Orioles group since 2019. In these 4 years he has made all of it the best way kind Rookie ball to the MLB.
Gunnar first yr within the Orioles group he was all the best way down in rookie ball, he performed in 29 video games by which batted .259, had a .370 SLG, and a OPS of .701. In these 29 video games he had 108 At Bats, he had 28 Hits, 5 doubles, 1 Dingers, and 11 RBIs. All that bought him the decision as much as Low A crew 2021.
So sure, Gunnar was not in a position to play in 2020, so we go proper to 2021. this yr he frolicked with 3 crew. First cease was with the Low A crew , the place he performed in 35 video games and had .312 AVG, SLG of .574, and a OPS of .943. Gunnar had 141 at bats , in these at bats he had 44 hits, 30 runs , 11 doubles , and bought some energy with 8 Dingers, additionally he had 39 RBIs.
Then nonetheless in 2021 he made it the Excessive A, he type of fell off little he had 65 video games, he had over 200 at bats , the place he had a batting common of .230, Slugging of .432 and OPS of .775. Gunnar had 56 hits, 16 doubles, 3 triples, 9 Dingers, and 35 RBIs.
Gunnar completed he season in AA however he solely performed 5 video games so his quantity won’t be proper . 15 at bats is simply not sufficient to evaluate.
2022 now that is the place Gunnar turns into the Gunnar we all know he flies although AA solely taking part in 47 video games . Gunnar’s slash line for AA that season is .312 Avg /.573 SLG / 1.025 OPS. Gunnar had 157 at bats the place he had 49 hits, 11 doubles, 8 Dingers, 35 RBIs, and his walks are going up there with 41 walks.
AAA was no drawback for Gunnar taking part in in 65 video games having a fabulous slash line of .288Avg/.504SLG/.894OPS. Gunnar had precisely 250 at bats, 72 hits 60 runs, 13 doubles, 11 Dingers, 41 RBIs and even 38 walks.

So to conclude I don’t see Gunnar going wherever, Brandon Hyde will discover someplace on the flied for him. The O’s do have Jorge Mateo taking part in SS however Meteo is 27 , additionally is popping in to a journeyman. So perhaps he will get shipped out after that good season he had. The O’s have plenty of infields prospect within the farm system. Gunnar is to good to return all the way down to AAA although so count on him again with the Orioles subsequent yr.
