Rethinking the OD roster based on the Hays cut

Recommended Posts

I would be very surprised if Chance Sisco isn't the starting catcher. He already has just under a full season of service time (156 days) so there is no way to play service time games, unless they were to keep him down the entire season which isn't going to happen. He has already played 139 games in AAA and 132 in AA. I'm just not sure how much more development there could be. Is he really going to benefit from getting at-bats in AAA instead of the majors? Unlike Diaz and Hays it won't save the Orioles any money for him to be at Norfolk, so I think he gets every chance to be the starting catcher.

I hear you (and others) on this theory, but that is saying that Elias doesn't care about development at all. Sisco has not shown he can hang at AAA. He hasn't shown he can hang at MLB either. So I think it benefits him to continue to grind at AAA and work on all aspects of his game.

Additionally, if you believe Sucre is making the team, then Wynns is the better option just based on his body of work as a player. 

There's a case for Chance to make the team - I'm not saying there isn't - it just seems like he's not ready for the bigs still. We really screwed with his development last year and I think Elias knows that.

Great post.  Thank you.

I think Sisco makes the team still, with Sucre as backup.

Alberto and Wilkerson probably get DFAd. 1 spot for Sucre and 1 for a waiver claim. I think DJ Stewart still makes the team after Trumbo goes on the DL.

Smith  is vulnerable.  And I agree that Stewart may be back with or without Trumbo going on the DL.

What about AAA makes it better for him to work there as opposed to working at the Major league level? As long as he gets the same amount of playing time, the development should be the same if not better at the Major League level due to MLB coaches. If he were to be so lousy as to merit losing the starting job at the MLB level, then sending him to AAA makes sense so he gets more playing time, but playing time at AAA isn't inherently more valuable to development than playing time in the Majors.

Fair. There's definitely a case for him to start in MLB. For me, the case about ML coaching is a much better/accurate one than the fact you can't get another year of control out of sending him to AAA.

Wynns might be the better option but does he have enough time  to be ready? He is going to take live batting practice on Wednesday. Even if it goes well and he starts Wednesday night,Thursday is a day game. I don't see him coming off an oblique injury playing at night and then in the afternoon the next day.So if he plays Wednesday(big if) probably Thursday if all goes well,he then plays Friday night and Saturday night and probably not a Sunday day game, Also plays on Monday. Four games to get ready for Opening Day, is that enough time and that is if they let him play some back to back days.

It's a stretch, but then why haven't they cut him already?

All of baseball knows about Mullins weak arm now, and they are running on him.

Maybe to get some work in with the major league club. He wouldn't have been able to play till Wednesday at the earliest even in minor league camp.Get some reps with the major league club.
