Bye bye Tavarez

When did I ever say I expected Tavarez to make the team?    I think Tavarez acquitted himself well, but the fact that he was left-handed and unpolished defensively always raised significant doubts whether he'd make the team.    In any event, I think he proved a worthwhile pick, even if he didn't make the cut in the end.

Just was being silly. I respect your feedback sir, we don't agree frequently but all in good fun. My point was sometimes you think one thing and then after a while change your mind after reading other viewpoints despite your owns judgement.

Agreed, his defense was main culprit, doubt anyone claims him. I just hope we don't overpay for him if we do a trade. Never saw anything in Almanazar and they got him back (he was a throw in sounded like). Honestly, I am glad to see they were able to move on from their rule 5 love fest that happens ever year.

Santander is the guy to keep.

Of note, I have seen a few Rule 5's returned already, we didn't put in claims on any of them either.

This move does setup a lot of movie pieces for our 25/40 man.

Having watched Dan and Buck work before, I fully expect to eventually see Tavarez in an Orioles uniform.

Offern Boston a trade for Steve Selsky. I dont think another team will claim Tavarez.

Think there is any other team that can take him on now? This might be the perfect timing.

I'm more worried about the Red Sox taking him back for 25K than I am another team claiming him.

What happens then? Does he have to go on their 40 man? Or not?

I don't see why we didn't keep him at least until the 15th. I guess if he can't catch the ball he just doesn't have value. 

They needed the spot on the 40 man for Asher?

No, he goes back to his prior status before he was claimed.

Tavarez has shown some potential but this move has been in the cards since we traded for Seth Smith. Add to that how good Rickard and Gentry (and Mancini) have looked, and it pretty much sealed his fate. Agree with those saying that it'd be nice to somehow work out a swap with Boston for him, but not holding my breath.

Santander has always been the one I (and I know many here) have been interested in finding a way to keep.

No they had an open spot after releasing Ondrusek

Good.  We don't need a Rule V pick with fourth outfielder upside clogging up the roster. 

This should open up a spot on the opening day roster for Mancini I would think.  Mancini or Gentry would then be the roster casualty when we need to go to a fifth starter.

He wouldn't get enough game action to change any minds in that short amount of time.  I'm fine with cutting him loose.  I guess an outfielder could get hurt, but there are still too many guys ahead of him for him to see much action.
