Next player recap(s) are Tim Beckham and Austin Hays! I didn’t have season predictions for either play at the start of the season.
Tim Beckham: Tim Beckham was acquired by the Rays for Tobias Myers at this years trade deadline. I predicted the trade 4 days before It happened, there wasn’t even any reports of him being traded to the O’s. People were questioning me about the Beckham post I made 4 days before he was actually traded, but was eventually traded to Baltimore as I predicted. The trade was a complete steal. Beckham is a former 1 overall pick, although he hasn’t matched up to his potential of the course of his career he was a huge piece to this Orioles team after he was acquired. Nobody could get him out, wether he was hitting homeruns, Singles, extra base hits, he was doing it all. If we would’ve had him all season I believe we could’ve made the playoffs.
Austin Hays: Austin Hays is the future of our team. After having an amazing year in the minors with a .329 BA, 32 HR, and 95 RBI. Along with his amazing bat, he’s got a cannon of a arm as that was shown off after his call up this past season. He also has killer speed, he isn’t Dee Gordon fast but he sure has some wheels. He’s going to be a HUGE part of this team down the road, it might not be this season he developes, but when he does he’ll be big.
