The Baltimore Orioles have not had an everyday leadoff hitter since the days of Brian Roberts and Nick Markakis. While it is still a small sample size, Trey Mancini may be the new answer for the Orioles at the top of the lineup.
The Delmarva Shorebirds currently sit at 8-9, which is good for third place in the Northern Division of the South Atlantic League.
Currently, third baseman Drew Dosch leads the team in batting average. Dosch was a seventh-round pick out of Youngstown State in 2013, but he did not play pro ball last year. However, we are now seeing why the Orioles drafted him pretty highly, as he has 21 hits in 66 at bats, good for a .318 average. He also has seven RBI’s and a stolen base.
