Who is he?
A big (6’5″, 210 lb.) outfielder, promoted from Frederick in the last few days of the season to help the Tides play out the string. Apparently, he was promoted because his absence wouldn’t hurt Frederick (or Bowie) in its playoff push. His 348 at-bats in 2011 were a career high. In 2010, he did hit .285 / .369 / .516 as a 24-year-old in a half-season at Frederick; but he followed that up with a .170 / .226 / .299 2011 half-season at Frederick; so it’s unlikely that his promotion indicates that he’s considered a top prospect. He’ll likely be released before the 2012 season begins.
Is his nickname “Orange”?
Not to my knowledge.
