I haven't seen Wilkerson play center since he's been called up, which I assumed was the reasoning for him getting the call over Santander and Stewart in the first place. 

I'd send Wilkerson down. 

I hear ya. I just really like Stevie’s versatility and I like his bat better than Rickards. From what I’ve seen from Rickard in cf I’m not impressed I imagine Smith, Wilkerson, Santander could do just as good of job.

None of them are center fielders.  Rickard has some speed and experience playing the position where as the others you mentioned do not. 

Thing about Wilkerson you need to remember is that he is 27 and just breaking into the big leagues.  I get that he's new and shiny compared to a player like Rickard, but there's no evidence that he's going to be able to hit major league pitching and he's not a center fielder.

Santander was returned to Norfolk and that was the right move.    Smith is in left, Mancini in right, Davis at 1B and Nunez at DH.  There is not place for Santander to get  at bats.   Santander also has a service time issue until the end of the month.

Geez!  No team is playing service time games with a rule V player.

Nice compact swing for Anthony on a cold evening.  I also like the back pocket flapping eschewing (pun intended) tobacco use!  😍

We did it to Rickard last year to leave him with 2 years and 120 days of service time (just below the super 2 cutoff).

He could be back for a another stay if Mancini goes to the IL (Hyde said Trey's hand was barking after first game per Gary T and Roch).

Hyde on Mancini: “I think his finger’s still a little sore and he’s not all the way there. But he swung the bat aggressively, looked a little rusty. When you have a finger, you’re thinking about it also. So he’s not in there for the second game and he’ll get a day off tomorrow.”

No evidence the two are connected.

If the O's think Santander will be part of their next contending team they should be concerned about service time.  He has  over a  year of service time at age 24.  He would be a free agent at 30 if the don't get the 7th season.   All they have to do in keep him in the minors for another 30 days to get that extra years before free agency.

I think Rickard was the person that sent himself to AAA by his lack of production, as he batted .152 with 10 strikeouts in 33 at-bats

So...put the guy on the 10-day IL.   The success of this season doesn't depend on Trey Mancini...so let the guy heal.

The IL strategies so far have been weird. Guys either not placed on it or rushed off it. Not sure why that is.

Rickard was 13 for his last 41 with 7 extra base hits when he was sent down in the middle of August.
