Almost as if they are not highly valued.

I will say that I don't see any reason for the O's to pick him up.

Would be a good pickup - shades of Texas giving up on Chris Davis. 

Are you being ironic? I truly cannot tell.

I don't think AJ Reed is the tipping point.

If he is, I'll refer to him as the Tipping Point, instead of his name, for as long as he's here.

Do you think Nunez has any trade value?   

They could pick up Reed, he still has an option for the rest of the season.   Send him to Norfolk and try to trade  Nunez.    They could recall Carroll and put him of the 60 day IL to open as 40 man roster spot.

Reed was Elias draft choice.

Just don’t pay him $20M a year if he makes it big like Davis did.

Not ironic. 

Davis was a Top 50 prospect and a .317/.374/.594 hitter in the minors who hadn't hit well in the majors (94 OPS+)

Reed was a Top 50 prospect at one point too I read, and a .280/.377/.538 hitter in the majors who has hit nothing in 150 PAs with Houston. Guy has an option too, if I'm reading this right.

I think PCL stats are grossly misleading...   ball just travels differently.    There have been tons of guys who mashed PCL and never amounted to anything in the majors...

Yes, please.  We don’t need to have him on our 25, just our 40, right?

    • That is up to Mullins.   He is on the 40 man roster.  He will be in ST.   If he hits well  at Norfolk then he could be promoted to the O's.
    • He should’ve. Probably would’ve lashed it for a double. 
    • I'll take a crack .....Harvey has a 97mph + fastball that's deemed plus and a plus curveball and Hader. Hader has a low 90s fastball with a lot of movement. The reason he's been so successful is that his slider drastically improved from 2017 to 2018 in regards to his control.
    • Agreed ...but he looked much better the last start as well.
    • Ponies Stave Off Baysox, 4-3 Ripken records first Double-A home run.   BOWIE, Md. – Andres Gimenez drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning to lead the Binghamton Rumble Ponies to a 4-3 win over the Bowie Baysox in front of 2,236 at Prince George's Stadium Tuesday night.   Bowie (39-20) jumped out to a quick lead with a run in the first inning. A double and a flared single put runners on the corners for Carlos Perez, who beat out a potential double play to drive in Ryan McKenna on a fielder's choice.    Binghamton (26-36) tied the game on a bases-loaded walk in the second inning and took a 2-1 lead on a throwing error from Perez in the third inning. The hosts, however, answered in the bottom half of the third.   RHP Zach Lee had retired nine in a row until Jesse Valentin flared a single to shallow right-center field. One pitch later, Ryan Ripken lined a missile off the top of the right field billboards for his first career Double-A home run and a 3-2 lead.    Gimenez launched his seventh home run of the season to right-center field to immediately re-tie the game in the fifth inning, and then put the guests ahead with a RBI single in the eighth inning off reliever Zach Muckenhirn.    The Baysox and Rumble Ponies conclude their season series Wednesday afternoon at 12:05 p.m., when RHP Cody Sedlock (1-1, 2.95 ERA) seeks his second straight win against RHP Tommy Wilson (4-5, 4.57 ERA) during Summer Camp Day at the ballpark.
