DFA Ubaldo

I don't think sending Castro down in favor of Wilson was entirely about Ubaldo.    The O's have a work plan for Castro and even though he did decently in his two appearances I think the O's believe he needs to work on certain things to be an effective major league pitcher.    He's now pitching every fifth day in Bowie, piggybacking off Scott.   He threw 4.1 innings yesterday.  

I think he was an emergency call-up for a faltering back of the Orioles bullpen that had blown five games in seven.

That makes sense except for the fact he didn't pitch at all vs Toronto. Why call him up, have him pitch well and then on the day Ubaldo pitches send him down?  Why wait?

Ubaldo is lucky again.  There is literally nobody to replace him at the moment.  Once Ynoa gets healthy and a start in at AAA he will be the guy.  Asher looks like he's too valuable to take out the rotation.  Even Verrett is on Paternity leave so we can't even bump Asher into the rotation at the moment.  Once the dust is settle I see our best 12 man staff as the following;

Bundy, Miley, Gausman, Tillman, Ynoa

Brach, O'day, Givens, Asher, Verrett, Hart, Fresh Arm

Paternity leave is only three days.    When did Verrett's start?

Verrett pitched on 5/16 and didn't pitch again until today 5/24.  Seems like it was all a timing matter.  He's been pitching every 3-4 days in AAA and in multiple inning outings.  Guess the kid popped up around 5/20 and he missed his normal outing.  

I'd say he's ready for a callup.  He only pitched 1.1 IP today.  With an off day tomorrow, he should be called up and Wilson sent down.

Well, Asher's sure looking like a big upgrade today....

>:(

It was one  of those days for Asher. He looked nervous to me, even though he had started successfully before . I think he will do OK next start. As for Ubaldo,  he did his job pretty well as a mop up man, eating up innings to save the more important guys  (O'Day, Brach, Givens and others) who will be needed for higher leverage situations.

Buck in his presser sounded like Ubaldo will go back into the rotation.   I would think that Asher will go back to the pen.

I think we all saw that one coming.

That's assuming we ever have high leverage situations again....at this rate, I dunno...

I didn't get that impression. Buck said that Ubaldo will be available out of the pen, but not for 3- 4 days because of the number of innings he pitched during  this game.  I've never seen Buck pull Ubaldo or anyone else out of the rotation for only one start. Buck had said earlier that Ubaldo's poor pitching was something he had to work out. Now if Ubaldo had pitched 6 shutout innings then perhaps that would be different.  Ubaldo was basically pitching mop up and did a decent job of that, but he did give up 2 runs. I got no impression that Buck intends  that Asher and Ubaldo would switch places again

Now it's possible that Buck might try a different pitcher in this rotation spot.

I'm pretty sure Ubaldo can survive a nuclear explosion. He's like a Twinkie. 

I thought it's cockroaches that would survive.

    • As of 9-19 Sisco  0 PB 13 WP -3 dRS -2.7 dWAR  Overall 0.3 fWAR Severino  5 PB 15 WP -1DRS dWAR. 04 Overall .7 fWAR  I included wild pitches Because it can be debatable whether the blame should be on the catcher or the pitcher, but Sisco Is clearly better at stopping pitches. But neither of these guys will make any other team go googly eyed.
    • This is where Sisco is today the 19th. He has improved, in K and BB rats especially, but I don’t think anyone is going to be in a rush to trade anything meaningful for him. His defense remains bad and he offers nothing as a runner.  32.4 K rate .340 BABIP .235 AVG .381 OBP 125 WRC .03 fWAR
    • I’m pretty sure he would be claimed, but that would actually be good for the Orioles. If he does, he gets the benefit of coaching from the new team, and we can watch him develop, or not, on a real life stage. If it is unlikely that he does well Enough to stick, when he returns to us, we will have had the benefit of the empty roster spot, but also the benefit another team coaching, and whatever experience he has on the major league stage, if he gets that far. And when he returns to us, we will have that much more knowledge and can deal with him more effectively. Of course there’s always the risk that he makes it all the way with his new team, and I guess that’s the risk we have to take. After all, TJ McFarland has had a pretty good career throwing in the upper 80s.
    • Severino is the one of those that I can best imagine attaining some actual market value. https://blogs.fangraphs.com/2020-positional-power-rankings-catcher/ The team will need to wait out the Realmuto bidding for the good teams that need a catcher.  If we just guess the Phillies retain, the bottom-tier catching situations from this summer on clubs that perhaps mean to contend in 2021 look like: COL - happy to do business with them again DET - Schoop repping the former Oriole brand well WAS - haha.  Imagine the WS tenure helps the incumbents CIN - will try not to have a Tyler Mahle infatuation here, they could maybe use Alberto too.  Nunez as fill-in with Votto salary relief? NYM - ibid Colorado HOU - do Elias Sig still have some nuanced favorites even James Click doesn't have his arms around yet?
    • By the 1 is a fluke, 2 is a trend notion, now as the PTBNL's get named I'm curious to see if it is all July 2 guys from 2-3 years ago.  It's as if we're retroactively doing some 2018/2019 stuff. Unless of course it's a Bundy basket type pitcher we'll all not quite understand with what we have in view.
    • Elias actually said precisely that on the team podcast.  I finally gave in to the commercials and subscribed - he was on with Hollander and Arnold a couple weeks ago.  It's team controlled content but its something.   He also said his expectation prior to next year's later All-Star weekend draft there was going to be some combine type stuff for clubs to get more data on the Rockers and Leiters of the world, in case we play our way back into that mix these last 9 days, with an assist from some 2019/2020 mixing. Holding back even some of the better prospects until later was explained in the context of reserving enough space for AAAA guys if needed in case you were the team that had the Marlins/Cardinals type experience.
