Today's trade chatter

bal.png?w=110&h=110&transparent=trueNL teams showing interest in O's reliever: On Tuesday, the Phillies, Braves, Diamondbacks and Padres all had representatives at Camden Yards, where Orioles reliever Mychal Givens seems to be drawing his fair share of interest. "His velocity's ticking up," says one scout. "He's pitching like he wants to get out of there." -- Eddie Matz

Let's have at it, OH!  What Top 100 prospect do you guys think we can pry away from any of these teams only to be left empy handed with a AAAA third baseman?

Just because some teams are interested does not mean they will offer anyone decent.   I still think the O's would be selling low on Givens.  I am hoping to be proven wrong.

Givens is a fairly similar pitcher to Will Smith and the Brewers got back Andrew Susac (26 year old AAA catcher) and Phil Bickford (21-year-old 1st round pick by the Giants from the previous year) a few years ago . I think that's the type of package the O's can get back for Givens. One interesting prospect in A-ball and a middling organizational guy in the upper minors.

If 4 teams are interested that will definitely increase the market price. I would guess by now its a near certainty Givens is traded. Wonder if Elias is looking for under 18 latin talent again?

Seeing how Susac and Bickford have turned out that is not too encouraging.

Just because there were 4 scouts at the O's game on Tuesday night  does not mean they were there to see Givens.  Could have been Villar or Mancini or someone else.   Heck, Givens didn't even get in the game so if they were there to see him, they didn't.

Can Givens take us with him?

Now what makes you think we would want to trade you?

Looking at the current roster distribution throughout the minor league system. Both GCL and Aberdeen are drowning in pitching depth from our recent draft allocation. I think the Orioles are looking for pieces in return that don't have to be added to the 40-man so you're looking for younger prospects. Maybe you could get a pitching prospect in return and stick them in delmarva  but there's gonna be a certain sweetspot in age range for that. I think we could add a bat or two at any level. And of course, the orioles will take any DSL guy given to them regardless of position.

17 year old DSL prospects!!!  Bring it on!!!

Why not?  Much better than low level prospects in their twenties. This organization needs talent. Not low ceiling, reserve types. I saw that one of the players in the Cashner trade as already debuted. There’s people on this board that follow the MILB teams. Maybe the DSL would get more attention if we actually had some players to follow. The new signees won’t start playing until next year.

Sometimes, scouts just have the dumbest quotes. I'm sorry. Lol. It's true though. 

It amazes me that in 2019 there are still scouts that talk like the guys in Moneyball not liking a player because his girlfriend was ugly.

    • 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.
