Our 44 can beat any other team's 60. Quite a statement by Elias. 

It's part of his master plan for the #1 pick in 2021.

So we can get the 6th beat player in the draft.

They announced that the full roster was submitted as required and more names would be released later.  Probably need to talk to players first.

And most of the other teams in the majors didn't have to talk to players first?  Just seems odd.

Maybe some of the other teams talked to the players beforehand?  Is that allowed?

They announced other players will be added. The Orioles may be waiting to see how MLB is going to handle the "taxi squad" and the what the Fall League will look like for minor leaguers.

This is why guys like Mountcastle, Akin, Zimmerman, and Kremer are in limbo a bit. (though strangely, only Zimmerman is not on the 40-man)

Another reason is that players can be easily added to the roster, but must be put on waivers if they are taken off so there's no reason to put all 60 on there until they know how everything is going to be handled.

If a player makes the 30-man roster, they accrue major league service time like any other year, but apparently there may be something about if you hold back a player for seven games it won't count as a season, which could mean we see Mountcastle and maybe some others shortly after the rosters get down to 28 players two weeks in the season. Still not 100 percent sure on this but it's what I'm hearing.

So it appears the following 40-man roster players are not on the initial list:

Pitchers:
Keegan Akin
Dean Kremer
Evan Phillips

Infielders: 
Ryan Mountcastle
Ramon Urias

Outfielers:
Ryan McKenna
Cedric Mullins

(edited after more information was found): Not all 40-man players need to be on the 60-man list and it seems the Orioles are playing a waiting game with the "prospects" on the 40-man who were not going to make the original 25-man.

Phillips and Kremer were hurt this spring so maybe that has something to do with them.

I'm not sure why they are not on the list as I though all 40-man roster guys were supposed to be in the list. 

Phillips and Kremer were hurt this spring so maybe that has something to do with them. 
 

And McKenna and Mullins

    • Bundy is a decent comp, but he's been able to log innings at a consistent rate since his Tommy John.  Harvey seemingly can't go 10 innings without having tightness in his arm or something and having to be shut down.  He had to be shut down last year, he had to be shut down this year.  I'm too lazy to look up his entire injury history but I don't have any confidence that he can throw a lot of innings out of the bullpen without having issues.   But Bundy's arm isn't Harvey's arm.  They're two separate entities and should be treated as such.  Comping injury probability is tricky because everyone has different DNA, everyone has different issues.  
    • So you think a platoon of Valaika (-0.1 rWAR this year, -0.6 rWAR last year) and Wilkerson (-1.0 rWAR last year and taken off the 40-man roster this year) would outperform Alberto (0.4 rWAR this year, 2.9 rWAR last year)?     I recognize they might improve their numbers in a platoon situation, but I don’t think it’s very likely they would increase them by enough to outperform Alberto, and of course you’d have to use two roster spots to do it.    As to finding someone better on the waiver wire or a cheap purchase, I asked who you wanted and don’t have an answer.     What this comes down to is you don’t think Alberto is as good as his WAR figures say he is, because he’s had bad splits vs. RHP the last two years.    We simply disagree about that.    I think the numbers have been a fair reflection of Alberto’s value.    I’d peg him as a 1-2 WAR player for next year, and at $3 mm, that’s not bad.    As to Bannon (also mentioned by SG and Philip), I am interested in him long term but he’s had very little AAA experience (20 games), struggled in the AFL last fall and wasn’t given a 60-man roster spot this year so I doubt the team is ready to roll the dice on him     It’s a shame the minor league season wasn’t played, because if it had he’d either be in the majors right now or at least we’d know more about whether we could pencil him in for 2021.
    • He hasn't. That doesn't mean he can't. No point in being doom and gloom about it. Look at Bundy. He was never what he once was but he has gone on to a productive career. There is all the more reason to think that could be the case with Harvey due to the freakish and unrelated nature of several of the injuries. 
    • Agreed. Ruiz isn't good enough though, so I'd move Alberto to 3B and sign Schoop (or someone similar) to play 2B.
    • Sums it up perfectly. As tantalizing as he is, as good as his stuff is, I really don't see the need to keep giving him chances.  And I'm sure that the trade value is low, it's not like we're the only ones who understand what's going on with him but we need guys that can stay healthy.  Unfortunately, he can't.
    • I didn’t see it but I like that he threw 72% of his pitches for strikes and that he had a swingstr% over 20%.
    • I have no idea what he looks like defensively but offensively, his numbers seem to be fine...at least enough to give him a chance while waiting on a guy like Vavra. Alberto isn’t a guy I care if he’s here or not.
