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.

    • Sounds right.   Wells would have been behind Akin last year and Zimmermann wouldn’t really have been much on the radar screen.    It’s great to see our AA staff all thriving.
    • The 2003 Orioles drew less than the 2005 Orioles.  The Nationals in 2.7 million and they have never drew that many fans again. In 2010 the Nationals drew 1.8 million.  It is hard to identify what the loss is but the 2007 Orioles drew 300k less fans than the 2003 Orioles.  But every season between them was a losing season.  I would say the Nationals took no more than 300k a season away.  Probably most likely scenario is around 200k fans a year.   The corporate loses were probably the bigger loss to the team. 
    • This is pretty tough to argue against. I even checked out the Pirates and Diamondbacks and yeah, I'm not sure Villar makes much sense there either.  I agree that he probably wouldn't be viewed as a starter, but more of a bench/utility guy.  It may take an injury somewhere though in the next couple of weeks. Especially since he's going to be sort of expensive next year for a bench guy. 
    • I agree. Let's get him in left and Hays in center the rest of the year and hope they can fill those roles in April in Baltimore.
    • From an article describing recent changes in Fangraphs’ prospect rankings:   https://blogs.fangraphs.com/we-adjusted-several-prospects-rankings/ They currently have him ranked 93rd.  
    • Let me put it this way on Mountcastle. Imagine a world where Mountcastle went to college and the Orioles drafted him in the first round last year (would have been his Junior year) instead of Grayson Rodriguez. Let's say the Orioles were so enamored with him that they sent him right to Bowie and he slashed .297/.341/.464/.806. Then in his first full season in the minors at 22-years of age (Mancini started  in Delmarva at 22), they sent him to AAA and he slashed .297/.320/.493/.813. Are you telling me people wouldn't be flipping out over this kid? Mountcastle had a bad night last night where he wasn't seeing the ball well and is in a bit of a funk over his last 12 games (.204/.235/.388/.623), but he's 22-years old and has as much upside offensively as anyone in the organization not named Adley Rutschman.
