Mancini and Severino exit with nagging injuries

Recommended Posts

So in tonight’s game, Mancini left with “right side soreness” while Severino left with “upper leg issues.”

Trey has been battling an oblique injury, something that is never good for a baseball player. Severino has been having quad and groin issues for a couple weeks, something that isn’t good for a catcher.

If you were Elias/Hyde, would you just 60 day IL them both like Mateo? An oblique isn’t something to play around with and with less than 20 games to go, why risk it? For Pedro, a leg/groin injury isn’t going to get better squatting behind the plate.

For Trey, you can call up Tyler Nevin and add an extra pitcher to the 40. For Severino, you can select either Nick Cuiffo (most likely) or Brett Cumberland (less likely) as the catcher.

Or would you just let them be “day to day” and go with a shorter bench and risk it in a lost season?

Trey has put in a fine full season (562 PAs) and tirelessly handled all the extra publicity and commentary from spring training through especially the Derby. He's recently recovered (in terms of cancer timelines) from a life-threatening illness. Let the man rest up all he needs to be in tip-top shape for 2022.

I'd like to see what other catching talent there is in the O's system. Can't be worse than Severino behind the plate and it's not like he's Buster Posey in terms of run production (83 OPS+).

In an interview with Roch yesterday, Trey talked about how weak and out of shape he was at the end of his treatment, and how he realized he would have to start working out intensely immediately at this time last year to get back in shape for the season.  And he did.

So he went straight from months of debilitating cancer treatments immediately to months of hard core workouts to rebuild himself for the season, to spring trip and then the grind of the last 144 games.

I think it's probably time for a bit of time off and rest and relaxation.  End his season now, and let him take a couple months to relax before he starts preparing for next year.

And maybe the team should dictate that because Trey seems like the kind of guy who would not make that choice on his own.

Great post, I agree. To paraphrase the farmer in "Babe":

"That'll do Trey, that'll do!"

    • Cardinals were smart enough not to resign Pujols when he hit his 30’s knowing he would never be able to match the production from the first decade of his career. With the way the Orioles have operated during the Angelos era they almost certainly resign a player of that caliber. It’s a mistake you can’t make when you’re not the Yankees or Dodgers. The Cardinals usually avoid these kind of crippling moves and that keeps them competitive. With Elias hopefully we see that with the O’s. 
    • Marte, who may considered the best CF option via FA, was just signed by the Mets.
    • On the contrary, it is completely true. The team will have ebbs and flows, based on random chance And misfortune such as is happening to Kjested right now, But if you avoid long-term contracts, all of which are stupid, trade your guys at peak value and restock the farm, and there’s no reason why you can’t continually be a positive team. The Cardinals do it and they never have a single digit draft choice they always draft in the high teens, and yet they still have a good team over and over.
    • Going into 2009, Tillman was BA’s no. 22 prospect, Matusz no. 25, Arrieta no. 67.   Britton wasn’t ranked yet but was no. 63 the next year.  Brad Bergesen was the reigning Eastern League pitcher of the year.   David Hernandez had led the league. In strikeouts.   So, it was a more impressive group than your post suggests.   
    • Even worse living with the knowledge that Cardinals owner Bill DeWitt Jr. could have been the Orioles owner all this time, but thanks to Peter Angelos outbidding him it never happened. 
    • Nothing happens til it happens, but can we glean anything meaningful from what the insiders say?   ”Listening to offers” means nothing. Does anyone NOT listen to offers? However, that’s probably indicates less interest than a term like… ”Dangling.” What does that mean? Is GM A calling up GM B and saying,” hey, I got this hot guy, and he can be yours! All I need is XX.” Is GM A being coy and hitting that MAAAAAAYBE he’ll listen…? Regardless, it probably indicates more desire to trade, but maybe not as much as… “Eager to deal” or “seeking the best matchup” which is where GM A is calling up everyone in the Rolodex and saying,” Have I got a deal for you! AND if you ACT NOW…no? Well, how about……etc etc” All  those terms indicate at least partially dealing from a position of “I don’t have to” “I’m in no hurry” “if you don’t, someone else will,” and so on. But pity the guys who… ”Are willing to eat most of the contract…” the fools who rush in, and then find it veeeeery expensive to rush back out.. poor San Diego would be less poor if they hadn’t flung all that cash at Mr Hosmer, but they did, and he has been smiling ever since…and they..” are willing to eat most of his contract” Anyway, where does that leave the Orioles? We’re listening. Sure we are. Everyone listens except your cat in the backyard who doesn’t want to come in yet. We are “dangling”…. That means we’re listening a bit more earnestly, but still it’s our call. Nothing will happen unless it’s very good for the Bmore boys. So let’s see what kind of horse trader Mike is, and what can he bring home in return for the shiny bauble he is dangling…
    • I think we are going to have to get some favorable results from our own young pitchers to improve significantly in 2022. Last year was a bottom 20% outcome in that regard compared to the range of possible outcomes from that group.    If things break the other way in 2022 we could see a lot more wins.   But you can’t just expect that to happen given their performance to date.
