Orioles Bring Back Ondrusek

Recommended Posts

Ondrusek has one option left.   He does take a 40 man roster spot but is probably a split contract between he majors and minors and will only received the major league salary when in the majors. Depth signing.

40 man roster is at 39.

I'm actually glad to see this. I had a feeling last year that Ondrusek had more to offer than what he showed. Whatever else can be said for Duquette, I do trust his ability to build a bullpen. 

Yes, and guys who can get a lefty out, they are at a premium.  Good call.

That was my guess. Having the option is key. He may take Worley's spot to start the season but can be sent down.

The option is big but I don't see Ondrusek replacing Worley.  Worley could give the team 3 or 4 innings if needed.   Ondrusek is a one inning guy that might stretch to 2 innings.   I think Wright , Wilson and Verrett are the candidates to replace Worley.

Actually I think Rickard Rodriguez might be in the running for that job.  I hope they invite him to camp and see what happens.

I dont' think Ondrusek is a direct replacement for anyone at the moment.  I think the MLB pen is basically set since we're stuck with one of Ubaldo/Miley/Gallardo in the pen all year.  

MLB: Tillman, Gausman, Bundy, Ubaldo, Miley

MLB: Britton, O'day, Brach, Givens, Hart, Gallardo, OPEN(MILB shuttle)

Guys on the 40 man(Open spot will be rotated through them for a fresh arm)

AAA Rotation: Verret, Wilson, Wright, Gunkel, Macfarland

AAA Bullpen: Drake, Ondrusek, Garcia

AA Rotation: Lee, Acquino, Bridwell, 

AA Bullpen: Liranzo

Unless something changes, I think we'll see Drake win the last spot in the MLB pen with Verret, Wilson and Ondrusek being rotated through the most.

Makes sense.

I think we see a ML reliever traded off of this scenario. Its the only thing that makes any sense.

Only if we get desperate to fill RF. Tillman and Gausman are the only two SP's that pitch consistently into the 6th inning.  Bundy will be on an innings limit.  160 IP tops.  So he won't be pitching too late into games.  Who knows what you're going to get from the three vets when they start.  

The key to our success since 2012 have been strong bullpens that support shaky rotations.  In most games that we win we will need 3/4 of Britton, O'day, Brach, Givens to pitch.  I just don't see where we have excess.  We have depth, but it's not like we won't have plenty of high leverage innings to go around.

    • Correct. He and clement had cup of coffees.
    • To state the obvious, some drafts are better than others, both regarding the amount of talent available and the choices made by the teams.      To illustrate, I had a brief look at the top 30 picks in every draft from 2000-2014.    I stopped after 2014 because many of the players picked in 2015 or later are still in the minors or have only played 1-2 years in the majors, so the data on those years is woefully incomplete.    Even in this synopsis, the data on years from 2010 on are still very much in progress.    But, I think you can determine which drafts were strong and which were weak, in terms of available talent and the wisdom of the choices. 2000 Players over 10 WAR: 4 Players over 0.0 WAR: 6 Players who made the majors: 16 Top 5: Utley 64.4 (15), A. Gonzalez 43.6 (1), Wainwright 40.5 (29), Baldelli 10.2 (6), S. Burnett 5.9 (19)   2001 Players over 10 WAR: 5 Players over 0.0 WAR: 15 Players who made the majors: 19 Top 5: Mauer 55.3 (1), Teixeira 50.6 (5), Prior 16.6 (2), Floyd 15.7 (4), Lowry 10.0 (30)   2002 Players over 10 WAR: 11 Players over 0.0 WAR: 18 Players who made the majors: 24 Top 5: Greinke 71.0 (6), Hamels 59.5 (17), Cain 29.1 (25), Span  28.1 (20), Fielder 23.8 (7)   2003 Players over 10 WAR: 7 Players over 0.0 WAR: 18 Players who made the majors: 22 Top 5: Markakis 34.2 (7), Hill 24.4 (13), Danks 20.2 (9), Billingsley 17.2 (24), Maholm 11.9 (8)   2004 Players over 10 WAR: 6 Players over 0.0 WAR: 22 Players who made the majors: 27 Top 5: Verlander 71.6 (2), Weaver 34.6 (12), Walker 20.0 (11), S. Drew 15.9 (15), Butler 11.9 (14)   2005 Players over 10 WAR: 12 Players over 0.0 WAR: 20 Players who made the majors: 26 Top 5: Braun 46.8 (5), McCutchen 44.8 (11), Tulowitzki 44.5 (7), Zimmerman 38.5 (4), Gordon 35.0 (2)   2006 Players over 10 WAR: 7 Players over 0.0 WAR: 17 Players who made the majors: 23 Top 5: Kershaw 67.9 (7), Scherzer 60.1 (11), Longoria 56.0 (3), Lincecum 19.6 (10), Kennedy 17.6 (21)   2007 Players over 10 WAR: 6 Players over 0.0 WAR: 16 Players who made the majors: 22 Top 5: Price 39.4 (1), Heyward 36.9 (14), Bumbarner 36.8 (10), Porcello 19.8 (27), Wieters 18.2 (5)   2008 Players over 10 WAR: 7 Players over 0.0 WAR: 20 Players who made the majors: 26 Top 5: Posey 41.8 (5), G. Cole 23.8 (28 – not signed), Hosmer 16.7 (3), Lawrie 15.6 (16), J. Castro 12.1 (10)   2009: Players over 10 WAR: 6 Players over 0.0 WAR: 17 Players who made the majors: 22 Top 5: Trout 72.8 (25), Strasburg 33.5 (1), Pollock 19.2 (17), Minor 17.7 (7), Leake 16.9 (8)   2010 Players over 10 WAR:  7 Players over 0.0 WAR: 14 Players who made the majors: 21 Top 5: Sale 45.3 (10), Machado 36.7 (3), Harper 31.8 (1), Yelich 31.8 (23), Grandal 17.2 (12)   2011 Players over 10 WAR: 9 Players over 0.0 WAR: 23 Players who made the majors: 27 Top 5: Rendon 29.1 (6), Lindor 27.6 (8), Springer 25.4 (11), Cole 23.9 (1), S. Gray 18.1 (18)   2012 Players over 10 WAR: 5 Players over 0.0 WAR: 15 Players who made the majors: 21 Top 5: Correa 24.5 (1), C. Seager 15.7 (18), Stroman 14.7 (22), A. Russell 10.7 (11), Gausman 10.0 (4)   2013 Players over 10 WAR: 2 Players over 0.0 WAR: 15 Players who made the majors: 22 Top 5: Bryant 23.9 (2), J. Gray 10.1 (3), T. Anderson 8.7 (17), M. Gonzales 6.2 (19), Renfroe 6.1 (13)   2014 Players over 10 WAR: 5 Players over 0.0 WAR: 15 Players who made the majors: 20 Top 5: Chapman 19.8 (25), Nola 19.4 (7), T. Turner 14.1 (13), Conforto 12.4 (10), Freeland 10.6 (8)   The 2002, 2005 and 2011 drafts were pretty amazing, both in terms of the number of players chosen in the top 30 who reached the majors and the ones who were/are pretty good.    If I get a chance, I'll add to this post some of the better players who were chosen outside the top 30.      Note that only 20 of 75 players chosen in the top 5 in this 15-year period have actually been among the top 5 of the first 30 chosen players: 7 no. 1's, 4 no. 2's, 3 no. 3's, 3 no. 4's and 3 no. 5's.      We'll see how the class of 2020 pans out.    
    • Here is a list of the top 5 selections for college bats for the last 17 years.  Everyone made it to the majors with 13 having good to great careers.   The O’s should draft a college bat either Torkelson or Martin. 2000 none 2001 Teixeira 2002 none 2003 Weeks 2004 none 2005 Gordon, Clement, Zimmerman, Braun 2006. Longoria 2007 Wieters 2008 Alvarez, Posey 2009 Ackley, Sanchez 2010 none 2011 none 2012 Zunino 2013 Bryant 2014 schwarber 2015 Swanson, Bregman 2016 Senzel, Ray 2017 none    
    • My bad, it was Jeff clement.   Both he and Sanchez did have a cup of coffee in the bigs.
    • I do not want any of those widespread issues brought up by you or discussed in this thread.    Please, no response. 
    • I’m sure they were blinded by all the shinny new objects that Hall was buying them.
