Baltimore Orioles backbone is the power of their offense. Chris Davis, Mark Trumbo, and Manny Machado make up one of the scariest set of batters in a lineup in the MLB. What if the Orioles were to add another player to that already unbelievable set of hitters, well they just might've.
Trey Mancini has only played 12 games in the MLB and he has already hit seven home runs. Yes, that ties the MLB record for most home runs in 12 games, and now the Orioles seem to have a player that could potentially make the Orioles lineup the best in baseball. Mancini doesn't just hit for power like fellow first baseman Chris Davis, he hits for a high average posting a .364 BA in seven games this season. Obviously it's a small sample size and there's no possible way he can keep that pace up for an entire season. However, even if his average comes down to .290 and his home run pace slows down he'll still be a huge addition to an already feared lineup. Now, pitchers have a whole other batter to worry about, which is a nightmare for pitchers in the AL East. Mancini is a huge right handed batter, he can either play first base or a corner outfield position, and he's only 25 years old, so yeah it's safe to say I'm a little nervous about this young stud.
The Orioles add another big bat through their farm system, who knows, maybe Mancini just got off to an extremely hot start and he's really not all that. For some reason, I really doubt that, this guy looks like a monster and if his hot start is any implication to the player he's going to be, then he makes Chris Davis look like an easy at-bat. Orioles will need Mancini to be a huge addition to their lineup since they have a terrible starting rotation and Zach Britton is now out with injury. They'll need to score runs in bunches often or you'll see the Orioles in a lot of trouble. Mancini arrived right on time to save the Orioles, and boy does he have me worried.
