What are a few Orioles resolutions for the 2019 season? ESTShareTweetShareShareA return to reality and a few Orioles resolutions Kim Klement-USA TODAY SportsFor many, today is a cold return to reality. The holiday season has come and passed, the year 2018 has come to a close, and a great number of people find themselves back at work. The Christmas lights are coming down, but there are still many cold days ahead for Orioles fans that aren’t based in sunny Sarasota, Florida. While the holidays often provide a welcome distraction, along with some unwelcome stress,the status quo is back in full force. The recent hirings of manager Brandon Hyde and executive vice president Mike Elias have served as a similar distraction. Hyde, Elias and other new hires have allowed Orioles fans to focus on the future instead of the woeful 2018 season.As we all snap back to reality, we see that the roster really has not changed much. The Orioles did not do any holiday shopping, and they likely won’t even head to the store until the clearance rack is half empty. An Amazon gift card can’t play shortstop, and the Orioles probably wouldn’t load it up with a lot of spending money anyway. When the Orioles were competitive under the Duquette and Showalter tenure Miles Mikolas Jersey , they often applied a similar strategy. Baltimore waited until spring training neared, and then it pounced on a piece it felt could help the team at a reasonable value. The approach makes more sense now that the Orioles are not immediately pursuing a championship. Still, it is not exactly comforting knowing that there are not reinforcements on the horizon. The Orioles will still try to get better in 2019. They’re making resolutions just like you and me, but hopefully they don’t throw in the towel as quickly as I do on my gym membership. What are a few things the Birds hope to do in 2019?The Orioles need to select the best player in the 2019 MLB draft. That’s easier said than done, but Elias, Sig Mejdal and others in the organization are doing everything they can to evaluate the draft class. Elias and Mejdal have hit on top picks before, and they’ll certainly rely on their experience, along with analytics and projections, when they make the choice in June. Even if the Orioles don’t come away with the best player, they cannot afford a bust. Bobby Witt Jr. or Adley Rutschman will not single-handedly save the Orioles organization, but the pick represents the first step in the right direction for the current administration. Baltimore hopes that whichever player they select will play a role in the next winning window for the Orioles. Baltimore will strive to win more than 47 games this year. The team may not be chasing a ring yet, but it still wants to see improvement on the field and in the win column. The Orioles could increase last year’s .290 winning percentage and still come away with another top pick in the 2020 draft. The Birds will be made up of young players that the organization hopes will one day contribute for a playoff contender. If some of the young guns play like they are capable of, Baltimore should win a few more games this year. The Orioles must handle their prospects properly this year. Hyde has managed in the minor leagues, and he should be able to assess the status of talent. Hyde , Elias and new hires like Tim Cossins (who previously served as the Chicago Cubs minor league catching coordinator) will all do what the organization thinks is best for prospects in the long term. The Orioles don’t want to call up top prospects like Yusniel Diaz or Ryan Mountcastle just because there is room for them on the roster. To the same tune, the Orioles don’t want Dillon Tate or Hunter Harvey facing major league hitters until they are prepared to do so. After finishing 47-115, there are countless things that need improvement in Baltimore. Hitters will be looking for bounce back seasons, pitchers will aim for consistency and the Orioles are going to try and win a few more games. What do you think is the most important New Year’s resolution that the Orioles should set for 2019? Let us know in the comment section, and feel free to include a personal one too.

This year’s draft class is loaded with excellent hitting prospects, but is relatively weak on the pitching side. Draft Prospects You Should Know is a new series that features prospects who the White Sox could pursue in this year’s draft. As the June draft nears, we’ll return to many of these athletes and provide updates on whether their stocks are rising (or falling). Age listed as of Day One of the Draft (June 3).Rece HindsIMG Baseball Academy (Bradenton, Fla.)Third BasemanAge 18Bats RightThrows RightRankingsBaseball America 24MLB 27FanGraphs 45At first glance Jason Motte Jersey , Hinds seems like a right-handed version of Nolan Gorman, the first-round selection of the St. Louis Cardinals last year. His power is easily plus right now, and multiple evaluators say it could be 80-grade juice in the future. With a strong, 6 210-pound frame, Hinds muscles balls out to all fields with ease, though in-game he’s had real swing-and-miss issues that scouts will bear down on in the spring. PerfectGame says, “Elite level power with big raw bat speed and extension through contact, can get long and around the ball at times but can launch them to where others can’t when everything comes together.”Defensively, he’s got one of the strongest arms in the 2019 class from the left side of the infield, though he’s likely too big for shortstop already. He also has plenty of work to do in refining his glove work and improving his throwing accuracy on the run to stick at third base. While his plus arm keeps him at the hot corner for now (his arm has been clocked at 98 mph per PerfectGame), there are concerns that he may eventually be a first baseman. MLB grades his tools as follows: Power 60, Arm 50, Hit 45 , Field 45, Run 40.Hinds is verbally committed to SEC powerhouse LSU. Being a prep prospect, it’s highly unlikely the White Sox will draft Hinds with the third overall pick (they haven’t picked preps in the first round since Courtney Hawkins and Keon Barnum were selected in 2012). However, if Hinds falls to the second round, the White Sox would consider selecting him due to his vast potential and lack of system depth at the hot corner. His closest comp in the Sox organization, in regards to power and defense, is Jake Burger.Previously, on Draft Prospects You Should KnowMatt Wallner, Southern Miss OFTyler Dyson, Florida RHSP
