Multiple moves today (9/7)

Recommended Posts

I guess Hunter Harvey will be carried on the 40 man roster this offseason, but will he ever pitch meaningful innings for the Orioles?  

And Manny Barreda is making his MLB debut and will be 33 years old in October. It's been a long road for him to get to the major leagues.

We heard Harvey had a setback and then he pitched in a game in Norfolk and gave up 4 runs in an inning.  Obviously he wasn’t right.

That may be true, but today's move has absolutely nothing to do with that.   It is just a procedural move.   Harvey was on the 10 day IL, now he is on the 60, to free up a 40 man spot for Barreda.   But he has been on the IL for 70 days so he could still be activated any day, just as he could have been before today's paper move.   The only difference is he is off the 40, but the Orioles have shown that when they need a 40 man spot they have no qualms about DFAing someone.

That is quite a Bbref stats page he has. https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=barred001man

Hope he gets a shot to actually pitch.

I think he has a good chance of being DFA’d. I doubt they can work a trade for a guy who is injured 80% of the time. I don’t care how talented you are, if you cannot stay healthy, what does it matter? We need the roster spot for guys who can actually contribute to the team.

I'm not sure how healthy he's been but the only time he was truly impressive was when he first came up in 2019.   You could argue that he's never been as good since then even when he was able to get on the field.

Earlier this year I never would have thought it a possibility. But now, I think there is a very real chance Harvey might not get protected on the 40 man if it's between him and player that can stay healthy.

Chris Davis retiring might be what saves Harvey from being DFA-ed.

Who is Manny Bareda? What’s his claim to fame? Why did we want him instead of Knight?

My thought too. Who the heck is this guy?!??

Former 12th round pick from the Yankees, spent the season in Norfolk after signing as a MiLB free agent from Mexico. Stats have been, well, mediocre in AAA this season. 35 innings, 34 strike outs, 10 walks. 4.08 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP.

However, he has never been in the MLB. This could be his "gold watch," like Mickey Jannis. With that being said, who is excited to see Ryan Ripken during the final week?

I don’t have a problem with bringing him up, I like the idea of non-prospects being given an opportunity, I was just wondering if he had anything worth writing home about. I’d like to see Spencer Watkins again frankly, but sadly I think that’s not going to happen

Good story for Barreda. It’s what September is for. Harvey might be done. It seems like it would make sense to just 60 day Lopez and give someone else a cup of coffee.

    • According to the source I used, he was a RHP from Newport HS (WA).
    • I guess you’re too young to remember when the goalposts were at the front of the end zone.  Or when a jump shot from 24 feet was only worth 2 points.    
    • Imposter syndrome basically means you don't feel like you belong.
    • We should probably sign a catcher huh?
    • Part of the reason why we've seen the slashing style play go away is the astroturf fields from cookie cutter stadiums and domes are all gone. The Cardinals, Astros and Royals among other teams took advantage of their home field's playing surface. That meant hitters put the ball in play to take advantage of the bounciness of astroturf, and stealing more bases because the turf gave runners an advantage. Plus you saw teams valuing speed and athleticism over bigger players that swung for the fences. I liked seeing a mix in the styles of play between different franchises, whereas today pretty much all teams play the same style swinging for the fences.  
    • Even though the 60'6" has remained the same since 1893, the distance between the average of pitchers' release points and home plate has decreased because pitchers have gotten, on average, taller and longer-limbed. And the decrease over the past, say, 50 years has been significant. (For the same reason, there's also been an effective increase in the height of the mound.) I've seen some estimates, but I can't recall them right now. Nonetheless, I think it's more likely that the effort to produce the same effect will be made by increasing the number of pitches thrown by a pitcher, for example by limiting the number of pitchers used in a game or the number of pitchers on the 26-man roster. Other sports have been much more willing to change basic rules to improve the game: pro football has moved the goalposts, changed the extra-point and kickoff rules, added overtime, and protected quarterbacks and receivers. Basketball introduced the 3-point field goal, widened the lanes and banned zone defenses. Leagues in other sports haven't held their rules as sacrosanct as MLB. It's not practical for them to change the size of their standardized playing surfaces. There have been some suggestions to raise the baskets, and there's been some experimentation with that. At least some of those showed a drop in outside shooting accuracy and an increase in rebounding and the proportion of scoring by big guys -- not the desired effect.
    • Or they need to run it again in 2 weeks!  Lol
