Prospects On Deck: Orioles Chance Sisco Is A Rising Star

Chance Sisco graduated High School, then was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the 2nd round (61st overall) of the 2013 June MLB draft. The 6’2″ catcher has risen through the system very quickly proving that he has a knack of putting the bat on the ball, while also hitting for average.

In his first pro season, he started out with the organizations Gulf Coast team in rookie ball and batted .371 (36 for 102), with one home run and 11 RBI’s. He was then sent to Low A ball for two games in September and was 1 for 6 in two games.

In 2014, he played a full season with Class-A Aberdeen Shorebirds and batted .340, with 145 hits, 27 doubles, two triples, five home runs, 63 RBI’s and 42 walks in 114 games.

The following season, Sisco played 75 games with the Class-A Advanced Frederick Keys batting .308, with 12 doubles, three triples, four home runs and 26 RBIs. Then in 20 games with Double-A Bowie Baysox, he batted .257, with four doubles, two home runs, and eight RBI’s.

The 2016 season saw Sisco make the needed adjustments and over a 112 game span he hit .320, with 28 doubles, four home runs and 44 RBI’s with the Baysox.  Then was called up in early September to Triple-A Norfolk Tides and in four games he was 4 for 16, with two home runs and even RBI’s.

With free agent catcher Matt Wieters uncertain future, the Orioles are in the need of star behind the dish and even though they have some options entering the new season, their first step to finding a promising replacement was giving Sisco a non-roster invite for the upcoming Orioles spring camp. That doesn’t mean he will break camp with the big club, but it will give the organization an opportunity to see the 21-year old prospect at work.

The future is very bright for the California native as the Orioles new up and coming star behind the plate.
