Remember, he was DFA'ed to make room for Josh Osich, a pitcher from....

The Giants.

Good one to follow this year.

Just seeing this now, but I have that same hat! I wear it a lot. Got it at a Kohl's randomly. Glad Elias and I have the same taste :P

Why isn’t Castro being stretched out? I thought he was in competition for rotation spot? He only went one inning yesterday retiring side in order. I thought it was odd he didn’t come back since other guys that are competing for rotation appear to be going two.

Split squads action with the entire contingent showing their wares.  Cobb and Harvey on the main stage.  Mountcastle settling in at first.  Hays with a little more CF action.   Diaz rumbling around in RF.  Means set to give up a couple.  Sisco catching with the big team.  Mancini still DH'ing,  Martin with first squad and Escobar and @Legend_Of_Joey Wynns (but enemy Susac catching) with "scrubs".  Enjoy but no tv today!

I'm not sure what to think about the "split squad" lineups. Usually you can clearly tell when it is "A" team and "B" team, especially the "travel" squad. But Villar, Hays, Rickard, Nunez are traveling, Wilkerson and Young Jr. are staying. 

Also seems like they want Sisco and Wynns to get the majority of the time, as they are both getting in the line up a bit more than the rest between catching and DH'ing (though Sisco has the hotter bat out of everyone right now.)

    • No pitchers with elite stuff, track record of performance, and desirable delivery/measurables. I think Lodolo is probably the top pitcher, I like him better than Singer last year, but doesn’t really have TOR upside, he’s 92-95 lefty with sink, slider, curveball, change. Throws strikes, lots of GBs, avg command. Slider is a new pitch and gives him a chance to miss more bats. Other potential top pitchers drafted are Alek Manoah who is an extra large human, 93-98, plus slider, developing change, has had command and consistency problems but has really improved as the season has progressed. Was pretty much projected as a reliever at the beginning of the year, but has shook that label.  Jackson Rutledge who is a JUCO guy with command issues but a huge frame and huge stuff, he’s t100, he’s kind of a Nate Pearson clone.  Zach Thompson who is a lefty who  was kind of falling down draft boards until he sat 94-96 this past weekend with a plus curveball. His stuff is so inconsistent, it’d be a hard sell for me before 20 overall. George Kirby who doesn’t have anything plus, but is polished, with a bunch of average to 55 grade pitches and potential above average command. Then my favorite, Seth Johnson, who has a best mechanics of them all IMO, converted SS, has pitched one year since middle school. 91-96 t98, plus slider, high spin curveball, change. Poor pitch-ability and below average command, but like I said he’s literally just started pitching. He could be 4 plus pitches with successful development. The lack of track record could be viewed as a plus or a minus.  Those are the top college arms, the high school class has depth but doesn’t have anyone I’d be excited about taking in the top 15 overall.
    • Making lemonade out of lemons,  the BP ERA is 6.55, 29th.  Coming in at #30, the Nats, 7.41.
    • They are still off the AL record for runs allowed in a season.  They are allowing 6.71 runs a game. The 1996 Tigers allowed 6.81 runs per game.  So things could be worse.
