Dan Straily 2019

Recommended Posts

Here is the money. Just a minimum deal with a  kicker if he is worth trading. 

NOT the 5 million the Marlins were gonna be on the hook for.

I'm guessing that they have decided that they need another outfielder and weren't going to keep Jackson anyway.  With Nunez and Alberto backing up in the infield, I think they just felt more comfortable going forward with a true 4th outfielder, rather than Jackson.

Thanks for the info.

575k is terrific. Don't think he's going to be anything more than a high 4 ERA guy with us but really stabilizes things.

How long since he last pitched for the Marlins? He should need at least a few sim games, don't you think?

Not unless he gets to go for extended spring training. Into the fire. Stretch out there.

That does make sense. Hanser took his place.

This is a move made specifically because they are short on arms to eat innings and you're surprised they didn't DFA a pitcher?

They signed Dan Straley for apparently $575,000, so the relative cost is essentially league minimum. Would you rather have Straley and Jackson for league minimum or Straley and Wright for league minimum?

And remember, Wright is terrible.

According to the logic implied by your question, you are saying that Wright is a better and more effective inning-eater than anybody we have on the farm.

I strongly disagree. Switching Straily for Wright improves the team even if Straily isn’t immediately available.

He can piggyback with Karns for a start or two.

As an aside, the Mariners have a terrible bullpen. Maybe we can trade Wright to the M’s?

You got it. After a few years of watching Schwarber in LF, I guess Hyde figures Mancini can hold down RF until he's traded.

You would assume that one comes up for Mullins.

I don't think they are going to trade Hyde.

I also don't think their is much demand for Mancini.
