OF Cedric Mullins Highlights Potent Bowie Baysox Lineup Thus Far

The AA Bowie Baysox currently stand as the only Baltimore Orioles affiliate with a winning record (3-2) and it hasn't completely been courtesy of dominant pitching, Bowie's offense is scorching hot. Outfield prospect Cedric Mullins is leading the way for a potent Baysox lineup.

Bowie, who sits at 3-2, has received some decent starts and relief outings from pitchers, but it's no secret that the offense has led to their early-season success.

The Baysox currently have eight players hitting over .300 (with at least double-digit at-bats) and are leading the Eastern League in practically every major offensive category. Bowie leads the EL in batting average (.351), home runs (9), RBI (37), total bases (113), OBP (.383), doubles (15), triples (3 -tied with Erie), slugging percentage (.611), runs (40) and OPS (.993).

Perhaps what's even more impressive is the fact that their lead in most of those categories is by a huge margin.

Highlighting the potent Bowie offense is Mullins, who has gotten off to a torrid start at the plate. Many thought he may struggle given the fact that he went from Low-A Delmarva last year straight to AA this season, but thus far that hasn't been the case. Through five games, Mullins is hitting .545 with three home runs, one double, one triple, eight RBI and has scored 10 runs.

Below are the eight players currently hitting over .300 for Bowie with their respective stats:

  • OF Cedric Mullins - .545, three homers, one double, one triple, eight RBI, 10 runs scored
  • 3B Drew Dosch - .438, one double, one triple, seven RBI, five runs scored
  • OF Glynn Davis - .417, one home run, one double, one triple, one RBI, three runs scored
  • C Audry Perez - .391, four doubles, five RBI, four runs scored
  • 1B Aderlin Rodriguez - .381, three home runs, one double, eight RBI, three runs scored
  • C Austin Wynns - .364, one double, three runs scored
  • SS Erick Salcedo - .357, three runs scored
  • INF Adrian Marin - .333, one double, two runs scored
As a team, the Baysox are averaging eight runs per game right now, which obviously is a pace that is unlikely to be maintained throughout the season, but their is no denying offense is off to a hot start and should help attract fans to their home opener on Thursday.
