Will Araujo Make The Team?

Recommended Posts

He only needs 17 days but is he really worthy of a spot on the 40 man? He has had an awful spring (ERA over 10+)

What say you?

I got to think his spot is dependent on what is on the waiver wire...

Depends on if Elias and Sig think he has any future with the team. They have no allegiances to Araujo and will cut him loose if they think that is the best move.

I don't think you miss even a slight chance he may be good in the future for 17 meaningless days in a guaranteed losing season. Protect your assets.

Is he an asset?

What if we need to drop somebody from the 40 man who we think is more valuable than Araujo?

Why would we need to do that?  Araujo is already on the 40-man.

I think that’s the wrong question.   The question is, does it seem likely that in a year or two he’d be one of our best 7?    If so, you put him on the roster for 17 days and then put him in the minors where he belongs.    But if you think it’s highly questionable that he’ll be one of our best 7 in the future, then sayonara.   I’m certainly in no position to judge this.

He's a middle reliever with poor command and one above average pitch.  I don't see the upside. Guys like him grow on trees. He's 25 years old.  Not some hot prospect we need to protect.

If someone appears on waivers or one of the non-roster guys impresses enough to make the team.

This is where I come down too.

Not today...two years with different minor league coaching?  Don’t know...but am willing to risk having a guy who is a bit worse than the other bad relievers for 12 days.

It isn't the 12 days I'm concerned about.  It's the spot on the 40.

I don’t think Arajuo belongs on the 40 man. Plus the debate is more about Arajuo versus Smith Jr or Wilkerson. Alberto either makes the team or gets DFAd for Escobar IMO. We have to add Perez or Sucre. So who do we drop?  Arajuo, Wilkerson, or Smith Jr. I’d drop Arajuo. He doesn’t have an MLB fb.

    • You very clearly stated her value was her looks and not her intellectual contributions to the broadcast which probably says more about you than it does about her.  Best of luck to Sara. 
    • Hunter interviewed her on the radio pregame, and she said that she was not yet able to reveal what her next job would be but she would be soon. So this looks more like she is leaving for another opportunity then MASN getting rid of her.
    • Game 98, July 21 There were some excellent defensive plays in yesterday’s one hitter, four of which I’ll mention here. - With nobody out and a runner on 1st in the 6th inning, Chris Davis gloved a hard-hit ball over the bag, stepped on the edge facing home plate, took one more step towards home as he pivoted, and fired a strike to 2B that allowed Villar to apply the tag and complete a DP.  Davis has always been very good at feeds to 2B and this was a good example. - With Givens in the game in the 9th, Devers laced a rising liner to RF that Mancini went back on and almost misjudged it but he leaped and made a nice outstretched catch. - The next hitter hit a ball in the RCF gap but Wilkerson raced over and made a nice backhand catch while running pretty much full speed. - The final hitter of the game hit a ground ball in the 1B/2B hole, but Chris Davis made a diving stop and an accurate flip to Givens, who hustled over to cover 1B on the play.    The defense was in a RH pull shift, so Davis was about halfway between 1st and 2nd when he made the stop.    The stop, the accurate throw from his knees at that distance, and Given’s presence of mind to get to 1B on a ball hit that far towards 2B were all very impressive.    
    • Really?  That's incredible considering all the complete games pitchers got in the 70s.  Where did you discover this fact?
    • Impressive!    His breaking stuff had great late movement yesterday.    Still, he got away with some hard hit balls, especially in the later innings.    Hyde picked the right time to pull him.   
    • She did a good job.    It’s not rocket science, so I’m sure they’ll find a competent replacement.    It will be interesting to hear what her next gig is.
