Where does the Orioles catcher Mercedes (that we picked in the Rule 5) fit into our plans? Minor league fodder?

Probably.

He can hit. He has a good caught stealing ratio. But I see a lot of passed balls. The fact that he hit in the Dominican for Washington but was let go by them anyhow makes me curious if there was a problem.

The fact that he is a 24 year old catcher just now reaching AA isn't as big a deal as it would be for a different position. But I'm guessing he is just organizational filler.

Saw this posted today and thought I would share. Kid is huge and that trip around the base paths was entertaining

Not much news on Sox prospects in the dead of winter, but here's an article from Merkin about Jake Burger:

FutureSox has a nice article projecting where our abundance of A-level outfielders might start the 2018 season.

Definitely a logjam and that makes a lot of sense. However, I think it is entirely possible that Robert opens in Winston-Salem which throws a wrench into the works. Call then stays in Kannapolis most likely. It's also possible that Booker is the one that heads to AA while Fisher DH's in A+. Otherwise that matches what has been my take on the situation.

It IS a nice problem to have.
