Orioles Lose Zach Pop and Grey Fenter in Rule Five

I hate losing both these guys.  Pop was part of the Machado deal and Fenter was a million dollar bonus baby in the draft a few years ago.  I felt like Pop would get selected, but was really hoping Fenter would get overlooked.

Hard to imagine Fenter staying with the Cubs all year.  Would they really keep a guy on their 26 man roster that hasn't pitched in High-A yet?

I'll bet we get him back.   And I'll bet Pop is gone, Dbacks will find a way to keep him.

I hope we get both of these guys back.  I'm a big fan of both Pop and Fenter.  Both guys have gone through TJ surgery and they each had "electric" arms.  I guess the "had" part of the equation is what caused them to be left unprotected.

I was worried about losing Pop, I know hard throwing right-handed short relievers aren't exactly rare, but he seems like he may be ready to contribute to a Major League bullpen. I am surprised the Orioles didn't bring him into the Bowie camp last year after he said he was recovered from TJ and throwing in Canada. They must know something we don't.

Gray Fenter has been something of a mystery since he was drafted and paid a hefty overslot bonus. He will be 25 in January and has never pitched at High-A. He has always walked way too many batters and the results don't seem to match the talent. He is an ideal candidate for a change of scenery, but my guess is that he will be back by the end of Spring Training.
