A LH Starter? Why

I would prefer to trade Manny now and Britton once he proves he's healthy to other teams.    Accepting the fact, that those two things probably don't happen and that the O's aren't going to sign Cobb and will probably sign 1-2 of the middle tier guys, that's the best I got.

Or, Gonzalez.

You really think any of those guys will make the difference for us? We could improve by 12 wins and that would only get us back to .500. With nothing but draft picks for Manny and Britton.

Your math needs some work.  A 12 win improvement probably puts us in the playoffs.

DQZvOqZWsAALnvf.jpgOutright waivers

Owens, 25, once ranked among the game’s top 50 overall prospects in the eyes of Baseball America, Baseball Prospectus and MLB.com, but his stock has fallen since last landing on one of those lists, prior to the 2015 campaign. The left-hander has seen time in a pair of big league seasons, tossing 85 innings for the BoSox from 2015-16 but struggling to the tune of a 5.19 ERA with 7.5 K/9 against 4.7 BB/9.

Early in his pro career, Owens posted enormous strikeout rates, but that trait has diminished as he’s reached the upper minors and the Major Leagues. Moreover, his longstanding issue with walks has become increasingly magnified against more advanced hitters. That’s never been truer than it was in 2017, as Owens split the year between Double-A Portand and Triple-A Pawtucket and walked a staggering 115 batters in 126 innings (8.2 BB/9). Owens also hit 17 batters and uncorked 17 wild pitches in those 126 innings — further exemplifying his struggles to locate the ball.


Owens claimed on waivers by Diamondbacks, per mlbtraderumors.com.
