Orioles 2016 MiLB FA's and Transactions

Recommended Posts

It's not just just free agency in the majors! Several Oriole farm hands are free to sign with anyone else, or re-sign. Some have MLB experience, while others just have minor league experience.

RHP: Pedro Beato (AAA), Bobby Bundy (AAA), David Hale (AAA), Genison Reyes (Hi A), David Richardson (AA), Janser Severino (Hi A), Jason Stoffel (AAA)

LHP: Jeff Beliveau (AA), Andy Oliver (AAA)

C: Zach Booker (AAA)

1B: Joey Terdoslavich (AA)

2B: Garabez Rosa (AA)

3B: Michael Almanzar (AAA), Ronarsy Ledesma (Lo A)

SS: Ozzie Martinez (AAA), Sharlon Schoop (AA), Sammie Starr (Lo A)

OF: Xavier Avery (AAA), Chris Dickerson (AA), L.J. Hoes (AAA), Zach Kapstein (Hi A), Quincy Latimore (AA), Julio Borbon (AA)

I will update this with signings (both for and against the Orioles) along with any transactions regarding their minor league system. As players get signed, I'll remove them from the list above.

To get caught up:

RHP Ivan Hernandez signed by Angels

INF Corban Joseph signed by Nationals

LHP Edgar Olmos signed by Red Sox

LHP Kyle Lobstein signed by Marlins

C Wynston Sawyer signed by Dodgers

LHP Jed Bradley outrighted to AAA Norfolk

RHP Richard Rodriguez was re-signed

RHP Rocky McCord was released

LHP Yi-Hsiang Lin was released

LHP Jeong-Hyeon Yoon was released

OF Mike Odenwalder was released

OF T.J. Olesczuk was released

C Audry Perez was re-signed

Did Olmos sign with Boston?

My guess is these guys have a shot at re-signing:

Beato

Bundy

Stoffel

Rosa

Borbon

Everyone else just had pedestrian stats and could probably be replaced easily.

Ivan Hernandez is listed as signing with the Angels as well.

Thanks, I'll update it.

Bundy

Stoffel

Rosa

Borbon

Borbon might be a late resigning. I'm sure he is looking mainly for a MLB spot, but if one doesn't pop up, he could come back.

Rosa should almost be a guaranteed re-sign.

Booker was the bullpen catcher for Norfolk. The other two bullpen catchers in Frederick and Bowie re-signed, so I expect him to.

Terdoslavich could be looking for a MLB deal, or atleast an invite to Spring Training. Again, could be a late signing by Baltimore once things dry up.

Schoop could return, especially now that Corban Joseph left. There is a spot in AAA for him.

They just signed a big lefty 1B/OF from the Cardinals system, David Washington. Hit 30 homers in AAA/AA (25/5) at age 25 last season.

They are expecting him to go to Norfolk. Guess he takes over first base since Mancini will (barring anything major) be in Baltimore and Christian Walker will stay in the outfield, unless they flip them.

As expected, Garabez Rosa was re-signed today.

I honestly hope Rosa one day gets a cup of coffee in the major leagues. The Orioles could probably do a lot worse than Rosa at Utility for a few weeks if Flaherty got hurt. Either way, the guy has been in the system since God was a Corporal and has improved a ton. When I saw him face curveballs in Aberdeen I didn't think the guy would get out of Low-A ball. 

The guy has 3948 PAs over 10 minor league seasons in one organization and has played every position besides catcher and pitcher. That's resume is almost unheard of and pretty cool.

Depending what happens with Paul Janish and how Sean Coyle works out, there might be a chance. Rosa has been doing than Adrian Marin, and he was a pretty high prospect. If Rosa tears it up in Bowie this season, I wouldn't mind him getting a September look.

Minor lg returnees Garabez Rosa and Chris Dickerson, INF Sean Coyle & RHP Tomo Ohka

per Dan Connolly

 

Do you know if Dickerson got an invite to Spring Training, or is that usually announced much later? He was tearing up the Eastern League when he got signed towards the end of the month. If his shoulder has fully healed and he gets a full season under his belt, I could see him being in the mix in 2018 if he rakes like he did in the end of 2016.

    • Boy that's hard. Machado might cause us to win a World Series. Would have liked to have Weiters and Davis that postseason. We definitely would have won then I believe
    • Mejia is essentially Richie Martin.  I do like the idea of picking up Robertson and/or Adeiny Hechavarria. Going into camp with Martin, Valaika, Sanchez, Ruiz, Urias, and one or both of Robertson/Hechavarria should get us through the season.  We also have Stevie Wilkerson back in AAA,  and I suppose Bannon and McCoy are of that age of do or die; so they could get a shot. If the O's can spend 40 million over 4 years on the Korean SS Kim and spread the cash 3, 7, 10, 20 to alleviate the bill while we shed Cobb and Davis (would back loading it be attractive to a FA since Covid my cut into salaries again?).  I think its a good gamble because we are starting to build enough young SS depth in the system, yet it probably won't be truly developed for another 3 to 5 years.  When Kim's contract would be up, we would hopefully have a couple options ready in AAA/AA ready to go. Signing Kim would allow use to take a chance at being competitive in 2022 and 2023 while we wait for the our next star SS to develop for the long haul. If they go big and sign Kim, I would go with Sanchez at 2B and let Valaika, Ruiz, Martin, and Urias battle it out for 3B and a utility role or two.  You could still sign one of Robertson/Hechavarria to come in for that roster battle.  In the end, if you could space out Kim's contract, the next two seasons could still be fairly cost effective.  You are taking the risk on years 3 and 4.  If Kim ends up flopping that 20 million in year 4 would be a bummer, but at least the last few years of Davis and Cobb have softened that potential blow a little bit.  If we strike gold on Kim and our young pitching and position players start blossoming, it could get exciting by next season, which would be 2 years early based on my initial predictions with the rebuild.
    • I dont know about you all, but watching the stars of my youth playing out their careers while being an embarrassment to the game is absolutely heartbreaking to me.  I like how football does contracts with a portion being guaranteed and a portion, typically the last year or two not guaranteed.  Football contracts are typically much shorter.  I think it’s partially steroid related, but these baseball players seems to hit a cliff in their low 30s now.  Obviously this isn’t true for all players, but these massive contracts seem terrible for the game.     any thoughts on how to make baseball contracts better? The obvious answer would be to not give out foolish contracts, but that always happens as gms are understandably short sighted.  
    • Another gem.   Love hearing these stories of how it was in the old days.     https://blogs.fangraphs.com/a-conversation-with-1960s-slugger-jim-gentile-part-one/ https://blogs.fangraphs.com/a-conversation-with-1960s-slugger-jim-gentile-part-two/
    • Hope you are right.  Elias would probably go that high and Galvis would be a good defensive SS to have as an Oriole.
    • I’m going to guess that he will be lucky to get 2.5M this year and I would think that number will be high.
