Dan Straily 2019

Recommended Posts

Quote
  • The Rangers and Blue Jays were two of the teams that had interest in Dan Straily before the right-hander signed with the Orioles last week, MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reports (Twitter link).  Both Texas and Toronto are dealing with rotation injuries, though the Rangers had a more immediate need for starting help now that Edinson Volquez has been sidelined with a UCL injury.

Incredible bargain. A little perplexing though that no other team out there was willing to give him a mil. He’s been a solid no. 3 type starter over the last several seasons. 

This is an exaggeration, at best. He only had 23 starts in 2018, so that doesn't qualify as a "solid #3." He gave up 31 HRs in 2017 and in 2016 in fewer than 200 IPs -- that's not very solid. Nothing good to say about 2015 or 2014. 2013 was OK, but an ERA+ of only 98. His only full season with an ERA+ > 100 was 2016, which seems a long time ago already

For the FIP lovers, Straily registered a 5.11 last season, a 4.58 in 2017 and a 4.88 in 2016. He and has never been under 4.00.

Some were clamoring last year for the Orioles to trade for him. Maybe Straily is a #3 on the 2019 Orioles, but there are few teams that he would qualify as anything more than a #5.

It appears that no team offered much more than the league minimum. You know, what were were paying Pedro Araujo. Maybe the lure of playing with  Trey mancini and Jon Villar was worth something. And of course Baltimore is a fine town  for a ballplayer according to Aubrey Huff. 

I suspect the likelihood of a permanent rotation spot and the kicker of 250000 when traded entered in.

Is it too late to fail him on the physical?

I question having Straily active, he would have benefited from working out for a week.

He's on a major league contract. He has no options. You can just pitch him on the side, but he has to be with the team and he does take up a 25-man roster spot.

I'm no expert but couldn't he have been sent to extended spring training?

Seriously? He's started 90 games over the last three years and has an ERA around 4.00 over that span. He's likely to be the 2nd best starting pitcher on the team and would be no worst than a 4th On most teams.

Oh it is bad, no doubt. Today was just a taste of just how bad the pitching can be. Hopefully someone goes more than six innings soon.

Did they do that with Cobb last year?

You have to take into account that he’s been pitching in a pitcher’s ballpark the last two years.   ERA+ of 93 and 89 those two years.    For an Orioles pitcher, that translates to about 4.75 ERA.    If we got anything below 5.00 from him, I’d be pleased.     As we found out last year with Cobb, it’s not easy to miss a big chunk of spring training and then pitch well in the majors.

    • These have become so important for me. While we are not where we should be, we are definitely seeing some success in the lower levels and that is exciting.
    • Mountcastle hit his 22nd home run today, and more importantly (apparently), walked for the third time in his last 4 games. .312/.342/.521.
    • I was speaking in a general sense.  
    • He’s not on the 40.   He’ll need to be in it in December.  
    • For Immediate Release: August 18, 2019   PITCHING STAFF TOSSES EIGHT SCORELESS IN WIN KEYS SCORE FIVE UNANSWERED TO TAKE SERIES FINALE FREDERICK, MD – After a rocky first inning, the Frederick Keys (20-33, 49-73) pitching staff kept the Fayetteville Woodpeckers (31-25, 62-63) off the scoreboard, earning a 5-3 victory on Sunday afternoon at Nymeo Field. Cole Billingsley broke a 3-3 tie with a bases loaded double that brought home a pair of runs in the sixth inning. Scott Burke (2-2) and Zach Matson (S, 1) then locked down the final four innings as the Keys gave up just one hit after the first inning. Tied 3-3 in the sixth, Will Robertson hit a single to lead off the inning and Jean Carrillo hit a double off the left-field wall a batter later. Parker Mushinski then allowed a walk which drew controversy from the Fayetteville dugout, as Woodpecker’s hitting coach Jason Kanzler was ejected arguing balls and strikes. Billingsley then came to the plate and grounded a ball down the first base line, bringing a pair of runs home to give the Keys a 5-3 lead. Burke retired the first seven he faced out of the bullpen but lost control in the eighth inning. He walked three straight Woodpeckers as Matson was called upon to put out the fire. With the bases loaded and one-out, Matson forced a groundball to third that caught the lead runner at the plate and then struck out the final batter to end the inning. Burke did not allow a hit nor a run over 2.1 innings. Matson polished off the final 1.2 frames and gave up one hit. The first inning resembled yesterday’s seven run opening frame for Fayetteville, as Cameron Bishop struggled to command the ball. He allowed a base hit and walked two batters to load the bases for Miguelangel Sierra, who cleared the bases with a double to give the Woodpeckers a 3-0 lead. Bishop rebounded nicely after that. He walked three batter but did not allow a hit or a run over the next four innings while he finished with five strikeouts. The Keys offense went to work in the third inning. After Mushinski retired the first two batters of the inning, he put two men for Robert Neustrom, who cracked a double to the right-centerfield gap that scored both runners. An inning later, the Keys were able to tie the game 3-3. Robbie Thorburn’s double put runners at second and third and Mushinski then walked a batter to load the bases. Clare then hit a sharp groundball to third baseman David Hensley, who couldn’t handle it cleanly, allowing the tying run to cross. The Keys have an off-day on Monday before opening up a three-game homestand against Potomac on Tuesday, August 20. RHP Blaine Knigjht (1-9, 5.73) takes the mound for Frederick against LHP Nick Raquet (10-8, 4.13) for Potomac. First pitch is scheduled for 7:00pm with pregame coverage starting at 6:45pm on the Tune In app and frederickkeys.com. The Frederick Keys are the Advanced-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, and play their home games at Nymeo Field at Harry Grove Stadium. Following the 2018 season, the Keys were named the winner of the Carolina League’s Complete Franchise Award. This goes to a team in the league which demonstrates franchise stability and significant contributions to its community and the league. In 2019, the team will host the Carolina League All-Star Classic presented by Visit Frederick.

    • I realize Im a "come lately" on this post, and I also realize a teeny weenie sample size is really nothing to get too excited about...but man, that kid has a good arm. I spoke to Palmer off the air and he told me EVEN if the gun was jacked up, he was easily throwing 98  with some movement. And he showed poise and smarts. Palmer's quote"really early, but I was impressed. That was an easy windup and he surprised me with that kind of velocity. Kid has a great arm."...Please...baseball Gods...Let SOMETHING BE GOOD going forward this year!
