Orioles 40-man Roster Tracker

I am pretty sure that Matusz is out of options.

Matusz was optioned in 2009, 2011 and 2012 using up three options. He is no longer eligible for a 4th option because he has 5 years of professional service.

Yep, everything you wrote is correct. He's out of options.

The Orioles trade Devin Jones (ranked #11 on last year's OH Top-30, but had a down year this past year) to San Diego for RHP Brad Brach. Brach still has one option left.

Room for three more players. After that, someone goes to get someone.

The Orioles just acquired catcher, Johnny Monell, from the Giants for cash. Looks like he has all three options left.

Didn't Gausman use an option last year, therefore he would only have 2 remaining?

Just asking!

I would sure think so.

I'll change it to two remaining but, for the purposes of options, Gausman only has completed one season. So, if he were to get optioned this upcoming season and in 2015 that would be three options used. Since he would have less than five "seasons" of experience he would get an additional option. That's why I had it at three remaining. Of course, if Gausman is still being optioned in 2015 and hasn't established himself we have bigger problems. :)

Absolutely.

You are right about him having the 4th option until he has 5

years of professional service. I thought I read that only kids

who were signed before they were 19 and have less than 5

years of professional service got the 4th option. But I can't

find that anywhere. The only thing I can find is what

you have written. So it looks like he does have 3 options

remaining. And you are right, if he has not established

himself in the next two or three years we do have bigger

problems than how many options he has left. Thanks for your work.

    • It's true. The minor league baseballs are more slick, even with the mud, and actually feel like they are wound tighter.
    • If we give him an opt out I think we can sign him.
    • I stole this from TV...   Marriage is a lot like poker. It starts out with 2 hearts and a diamond. After a while you're just looking for a club and a spade.
    • I did a bit of a comparison, using players that had over, or near, a .300 average (except Norfolk, because the only person who did only had 17 at bats...) and over over 100 at bats, along with their walk and strike out totals:   Delmarva Jake Ring: 154 At Bats, 12 Walks, 46 Strike Outs, .318 Average Chris Clare: 141 At Bats, 15 Walks, 34 Strike Outs, .298 Average Frederick Ryan Mountcastle: 180 At Bats, 7 Walks, 32 Strike Outs, .328 Average Steve Wilkerson: 155 At Bats, 19 Walks, 40 Strike Outs, .323 Average Austin Hays: 165 At Bats, 7 Walks, 25 Strike Outs, .321 Average Randolph Gassaway: 136 At Bats, 10 Walks, 22 Strike Outs, .316 Average Bowie Garabez Rosa: 186 At Bats, 4 Walks, 32 Strike Outs, .339 Average Austin Wynns: 133 At Bats, 21 Walks, 23 Strike Outs, .316 Average Erick Salcedo: 146 At Bats, 8 Walks, 17 Strike Outs, .295 Average Aderlin Rodriguez: 177 At Bats, 19 Walks, 32 Strike Outs, .294 Average Norfolk Johnny Giavotella: 171 At Bats, 21 Walks, 18 Strike Outs, .281 Average Drew Dosch: 115 At Bats, 9 Walks, 39 Strike Outs, .261 Average Chance Sisco: 122 At Bats, 13 Walks, 39 Strike Outs, .246 Average   Mountcastle might not have the least walks (thank you card sent to Rosa) or the most strike outs (enjoy the fruit baskets Ring, Clare, Wilkerson, Dosch, and Sisco), but he does have the second lowest ratio (hello again, Rosa) thru the system with that high of an average. Two names stick out for certain things: Austin Wynns is tied with Johnny Giavotella with the lead in walks for this group. Wynns is known more for defense than offensive. Giavotella is known as someone that can get on base. Sisco has a LOT of strike outs and a lower average for being a highly regarded hitter. Rosa has a really high average for someone that doesn't take a lot of walks and who strikes out a LOT. Mountcastle will give you 4 strike outs to every 1 walk. Are teams pitching more at him, or is he swinging at pitches that would normally be balls? Even Wilkerson, who had 40 strike outs in Frederick, gave you 1 walk for every 2 he had. Maybe some more batting cage time is needed?
    • Easily one of the nicest and easiest to cheer for players. Hope he catches on somewhere.
    • Blue Jays wish they had Duq. They'd have 11.
