Orioles 40-man Roster Tracker

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else get the feeling that Britton will be given every opportunity to make it on the 25 man due to his lack of options' date=' either as a starter or long reliever?[/quote']

I still think Matusz will be traded and Britton will be given his role.

I think DD and Buck want to see what Wallace and Chiti can do with Britton. There are no guarantees how that turns out though.

The Orioles signed OF Francisco Peguero, 40-man count is now at 38.

Peguero still hasn't officially signed has he. If he hasn't, Ryan Webb puts us at 38.

Peguero is official according to Roch on a 1 year deal. thats 39

Also, the Orioles officially have reached agreement with former Giants outfielder Francisco Peguero, 25, on a one-year contract. He will take his physical later today before signing.

Peguero went 6-for-29 with the Giants this year, posting a .207/.233/.345 line with a double, home run, four runs scored and two stolen bases in 18 games. He was 3-for-16 with seven strikeouts, six runs scored and three stolen bases in 2012.

I suppose it's going to happen but it's not official according to MLB. Assuming it does, yes that puts us at 39. Adding a LF and DH obviously will knock someone off. Plus, it's looking more and more like there won't be a Rule 5 selection this year.

The Orioles added RHP Ryan Webb, so they are indeed at 39. I've updated the OP.

Looks like he has one option left. He was optioned in 2012, but only for 12 days so that one doesn't count.

What is the cutoff for that? I was unaware that if they are only optioned for a limited time it does not count as an option used.

If you are optioned for less than 20 days before being recalled you dont lose an option year.

Ryan Webb (I believe) has too much service time to be optioned without his explicit consent.

I hope this is true, at least the part about Britton getting a setup role. Britton still throws pretty hard and he's developed his slurve pretty well. He doesn't have the offspeed stuff or the command to be a starter. I think he could be a pretty good power reliever.

Almanzar selected from Boston in the Rule 5 draft.

Also, Cord Phelps was outrighted to Norfolk.

40-man roster count is at 39 (Peguero signing now official with MLB).

    • Well, that's why I said he's a hard guy to project, he really is. I mean who do you compare him to.  He has Vidal Nuno stuff or worse, but he does a ton of crazy, deceptive things that make the stuff play up to the point where he hasn't been hittable at all in the minors, even being young for his level. I try to be super realistic in my reports and not overplay someone's chances.  I liked Cortes enough to rank him the top LHP available in the Rule 5 draft, and the second best SP option behind Burch Smith (who I really like and I think should do well for the Royals this year). Cautiously optimistic is probably the right place to be on Cortes.
    •   After reading your scouting report im not as optimistic as I was after your first reply. I guess being a LHP gives him a huge edge to stay in the rotation, I just wonder how hit-able he'll be. 
    • http://www.orioleshangout.com/2017/11/30/rule-5-target-nestor-cortes-lhp/ This is the report on him I did before the Orioles selected him in the Rule 5 draft.  He was one of my top targets for the draft.  Read at least the delivery section.  Basically, he changes the way he delivers the ball from pitch to pitch more than anyone in the majors.  
    • What is weird about his pitching? Haven't heard about it.
    • Let's pretend Nestor Cortes isn't a rule 5 pick for a second. Ok, so in that case, the Orioles have a guy who... Threw 63 innings of 2.26 ERA ball in 2015 as a 20yo in short season ball. Threw 106 innings of 1.53 ERA ball in 2016 as a 21yo split between low A and A+ ball. Threw 104 innings of 2.06 ERA ball in 2017 as a 22yo split between AA and AAA. The Orioles didn't have one pitcher in AAA who was 22 years old for any of 2017. He's struck out more than a batter per inning on average and his HR/9 innings pitched is a minuscule 0.38 in his last two seasons. (for comparison, the lowest in the majors in 2017 among pitchers with 100+ innings was 0.60) If this guy had been acquired any other way, a lot of people would be excited about trying him in the rotation. Now, don't get me wrong, there are reasons to question whether he'll be as successful as a major league player from a scouting perspective and he's hard to project because he's such a weird pitcher.  But the guy has done nothing except pitch exceptionally.
    • Wile E. Coyote.  When the Roadrunner stops short.
    • Ynoa, Asher are the two most likley candidates.Unless one of the Rule 5 picks looks great. I've heard Buck mention Hess when talking about options for 18. After that it gets murkier.
