Also how confident they are that Gentry will either be passed by or how much they thought Pena would be claimed.

Buck barely plays his backup Catcher.  Not sure why he would want three on the roster.

Then why bring him back?  Don't get it. This does set solve the other issue though. 

I don't get why you wouldn't have him catch back to back games while on rehab before bringing him back. 

Caleb is hitting even.

Trying to work out a Kim deal and need time?

Congrats. Somehow they managed to downgrade the roster.

Have to think they are trying to set something else up here. They aren't keeping 3 catchers for any length of time.

Why would that stop them from having Beef catch another game or two in the minors?

Only logic in 3 catchers is Castillo playing DH vs LHP. Trumbo then would have to go to RF. 

Some of us don't associate having Trumbo in the outfield with being logical.  ;)

I am sure there has to be something brewing because this move makes no sense in a vacuum.

I don't get why he is back so soon. Once again Caleb is hot. He better be 100%. You are right.

Has to be trying to deal Pena. 

I was right about Gentry. I thought he would pass through waivers. Player like him are hard to keep in 2017. Easier on a NL team.

All 3 catchers are hitting better than some players in our lineup. One for catcher, one for DH, and one for pinch hitter. :D

Caleb can play first.

Gentry is a plus defensive outfielder. No chance to stay on a Buck/O's roster. Just put Trumbum in  RF and see how negative  a total WAR he can post for 12M buckaroos

    • Initial post updated with additions to 60 man roster and info from intrasquad game.
    • Pirate reliever Hector Noesi (Initial post in this thread updated with all the guys who have opted out so far)
    • He signed quickly (for a Boras client)and less than what the Jays could have paid.  You think it is reasonable to think he would have sat out with 700K more on the table?
    • Update: the fourth and final season is brilliant. It takes place in 2030 and is really funny speculative fiction that focuses on how dysfunctional and potentially doomed the MLB is. It’s a must watch. 
    • It's also possible he lost some leverage on his demands when teams let him go to number 5. Still got the 2nd highest SB of the draft. I don't know if it's logical to suggest he would have settled at the same place for the Orioles. And how do you arrive at the bolded when he just signed for well above the slot at which he was selected?
    • I've heard the number for a full year is seven, whether it's games or days I do not know. That is likely a distinction without a difference as far as the Orioles are concerned, as they open with 13 straight days of games.
    • Unfortunately 2023 is the first year Mahomes gets a little more expensive ($42.5M). Hopefully it takes a year or two for Dak/Watson extensions (usually year 1 and/or 2 have a lower cap number).   But  I’d guess Lamar would cost about $35-$38M if he were to be franchised in 2023. That would lead to $42-$45M in 2024. (And $60-65M in 2025).    I don’t think they should (or will) go this route, but they could keep him for the following (cap numbers): 2020 - $2.5M 2021 - $3M 2022 - $20M* 2023 - $36M* 2024 - $43M* 2025 - $62M* *very rough estimates (And could change with big QB contracts) It would essentially be his rookie deal plus a year by year total of 1/36, 2/79, or 3/141. Not the worst thing IF you think he could run out of steam at some point and you think he’s somewhat close to Mahomes value. Again, they won’t do this, but this is what it would look like.  (Note: 2025 would be Lamar’s age 28 season)
