  • The Orioles are not abandoning the hope that former outfielder Dariel Alvarezcan successfully convert to a right-handed pitcher, writes Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com. Alvarez, who had Tommy John surgery last April, will be in Orioles minicamp next month, where club officials can get a look at him and better gauge his rehab progress. Kubatko notes that the O’s still believe he can make it to the Majors. Kubatko also writes that there’s somewhat of a split camp, internally, on whether lefty David Hess will ultimately be a starter or reliever in the long run. Hess was added to the 40-man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 Draft after tossing 154 1/3 innings of 3.85 ERA ball with 7.2 K/9, 3.1 BB/9 and a 30.7 percent ground-ball rate. The 24-year-old has been used almost exclusively as a starter to this point in his pro career, and given Baltimore’s utter dearth of rotation options, it seems likely that he’ll at least have the opportunity to continue developing in that capacity.

Given the dearth of rotation options, I’d like to see Lucas Long get a shot in spring training. He’d be better in relief/swingman role but I think he could get MLB hitters out, especially if limited to 2 times through the order.

Im bullish on that Yankees rule 5 guy, Cortes, but thats just one arm

I’m hopeful about him too, I mean he was one of my targeted picks. I like Mesa Jr and Ynoa as potential options as well. However, even I’m not ready to pencil any of them into rotation spots, they need to show well this spring.

I was being a donkey and saying that we found a solution to one of the three spots with Alvarez

Gotcha.

By whom? 

Well, they'll all be filled by someone.  Name your favorite default entry.  Predict it will be someone not named Darvish, Arrieta, Lynn, or Cobb.  Given the cost / risk of each, I'm glad that it won't.  Just wish we were a year or two further along in the development of our minor league pitching.  I think we have a lot of young talent, just nothing quite major league ready.

I agree, solid ST. I doubt all 3 youngsters pitch themselves into the rotation, but should be one of them in there.

If they trade Manny, I’d be ok with 2 of them in the rotation.

When did David Hess start pitching with his left hand>

    • Here are the Rays:   Evan Longoria, 1:3 2006, 56.5 rWAR David Price, 1:1 2007, 39.4 rWAR James Shields, 16:6 2000, 31.0 rWAR Kevin Kiermaier, 31:16 2010, 27.3 rWAR B.J. Upton, 1:2 2002, 16.8 rWAR Desmond Jennings, 10:3 2006, 13.5 rWAR Jason Hammel, 10:2 2002, 12.8 rWAR Alex Cobb, 4:3 2006, 12.5 rWAR Jeremy Hellickson, 4:8 2005, 11.7 rWAR Blake Snell, 1s:52 2011, 11.4 rWAR Wade Davis, 3:3 2004, 11.1 rWAR John Jaso, 12:1 2003, 10.8 rWAR Rocco Baldelli, 1:6 2000, 10.2 rWAR Steven Vogt, 12:1 2007, 7.7 rWAR Jake McGee, 5:4 2004, 7.4 rWAR Brandon Lowe, 3:12 2015, 5.6 rWAR Derek Dietrich, 2:29 2010, 5.3 rWAR (FA comp) Matt Moore, 8:1 2007, 5.1 rWAR Jeff Niemann, 4:4 2004, 4.3 rWAR Jonny Gomes, 8:3 2001, 3.5 rWAR Tim Beckham, 1:1 2008, 3.5 rWAR Delmon Young, 1:1 2003, 3.2 rWAR Chad Gaudin, 34:3 2001, 2.4 rWAR Joey Gathright, 32:3 2001, 2.2 rWAR Elijah Dukes, 3:2 2002, 1.9 rWAR Merrill Kelly 8:16 2010, 1.8 rWAR Dylan Floro, 13:24 2012, 1.7 rWAR Jake Cronenworth, 7:13 2015, 1.4 rWAR Ryne Stanek 1:29 2013, 1.3 rWAR Adam Liberatore, 21:16 2010, 1.0 rWAR Joey Rickard, 9:24 2012, 1.0 rWAR   Total: 31 players, 325.3 rWAR 2000-09: 21 players, 267.5 rWAR 2010-20: 10 players, 57.8 rWAR   I'm a little surprised they haven't been stronger over the last decade.
    • Honestly a pretty sad list after #5 ....Really most think that Wieters underachieved , Britton was called a TOR  that ended up in the pen because of durability, and Arrieta was god awful while he was here. Really, this list describes the drafting and developing failures of the Baltimore Orioles in the 21st century!
    • Waiver claim was how he got here so its not like we're talking about greatness. Maybe this means Mountcastle is moving to 1B or DH. 
    • Now the Yankees: Brett Gardner, 3:29 2005, 42.8 rWAR Austin Jackson, 8:29 2005, 21.9 rWAR Aaron Judge, 1:32 2013, 20.1 rWAR Ian Kennedy, 1:21 2006, 16.7 rWAR (FA comp) David Robertson, 17:28 2006, 15.8 rWAR Tyler Clippard, 9:27 2003, 15.5 rWAR Mark Melancon, 9:28 2006, 11.8 rWAR Dellin Betances, 8:28 2006, 11.2 rWAR Phil Hughes, 1:23 2004, 11.0 rWAR (FA comp) Joba Chamberlain, 1:41 2006, 7.6 rWAR Adam Warren, 4:28 2008, 6.7 rWAR David Phelps, 14:28 2007, 6.1 rWAR George Kontos, 5:28 2006, 3.8 rWAR Shane Greene, 15:24 2009, 3.5 rWAR Jordan Montgomery, 4:17 2014, 3.5 rWAR Jeff Karstens, 19:27 2003, 3.2 rWAR Jake Cave, 6:28 2011, 2.9 rWAR Mike Dunn, 33:28 2004, 2.8 rWAR John Brebbia, 30:28 2011, 2.5 r WAR Caleb Smith, 14:29 2013, 2.5 rWAR Zach McAllister, 3:28 2006, 2.5 rWAR Tommy Kahnle, 5:30 2010, 2.0 rWAR Phil Coke, 26:24 2002, 2.0 rWAR Ben Gamel, 10:29 2010, 1.1 rWAR James Pazos, 13:29 2012, 1.0 rWAR   Total: 25 players, 199.5 rWAR 2000-09: 17 players, 163.9 rWAR 2010-20 8 players, 35.6 rWAR   Not much there,  but then again, they're always drafting low.
    • The discrepancy is even worse when you think about how our draft picks work, with I think two exceptions, far better than theirs. It’s hard to blame one person, because the problem is over so long, but boy somebody is to blame
    • Now here's the Red Sox:   Dustin Pedroia, 2:24 2004, 51.6 rWAR Mookie Betts, 5:21 2011, 45.2 rWAR Jon Lester, 2:16 2002, 44.6 rWAR Anthony Rizzo, 6:20 2007, 34.3 rWAR Kevin Youkilis, 8:17 2001, 32.4 rWAR Jacoby Ellsbury, 1:23 2005, 31.0 rWAR (FA comp) Josh Reddick, 17:7 2006, 24.7 rWAR Jonathan Papelbon, 4:17 2003, 23.3 rWAR Jackie Bradley Jr., 1:40 2011, 17.8 rWAR (FA comp) Jed Lowrie, 1:45 2005, 17.0 rWAR (FA comp) Clay Buchholz, 1:42 2005, 16.7 rWAR (FA comp) Freddy Sanchez, 11:22 2000, 15.9 rWAR Justin Masterson, 2:27 2006, 10.1 rWAR David Murphy, 1:17 2003, 9.9 rWAR Andrew Benintendi , 1:7 2015, 9.7 rWAR Travis Shaw, 9:21 2011, 9.4 rWAR Kelly Shoppach, 2:4 2001, 8.3 rWAR (FA comp) Alex Wilson, 2:28 2009, 5.1 rWAR Brandon Moss, 8:16 2002, 5.0 rWAR Daniel Bard, 1:28 2006, 5.0 rWAR (FA comp) Manny Delcarmen, 2:22 2000, 3.8 rWAR Christian Vazquez 9:30 2008, 3.6 rWAR Matt Murton; 1:32 2003, 3.3 rWAR (FA comp) Brandon Workman 2:7 2010, 3.1 rWAR   Cla Meredith, 6:24 2004, 2.9 rWAR Hunter Strickland, 18:20 2007, 3.8 rWAR Ryan Pressly, 11:20 2007, 7.0 rWAR Kristopher Negron 7:27 2006, 1.8 rWAR Kason Gabbard, 29:22 2000, 1.8 rWAR J.B. Wendelken, 13:23 2012, 1.4 rWAR Brian Johnson, 1s:31 2012, 1.3 rWAR Tanner Houck, 1:24 2017, 1.3 rWAR Noe Ramirez, 3:21 2011, 1.3 rWAR Mauricio Dubron 26:7 2013, 1.2 rWAR Travis Lakins, 6:6 2015, 1.2 rWAR Ty Buttrey, 4:23 2012, 1.1 rWAR Jeremy Hazelbacher, 27:4 2009, 1.1 rWAR   Total: 37 players, 458.8 rWAR 2000-09: 25 players, 364.8 rWAR 2009-20: 12 players, 94.0 rWAR   They crushed us in the 2000-09 period.    We have a slight edge on them in 2010-20 to date.     
    • Actually he's the perfect guy for the Japanese Leagues. He might hit 80 home runs in Korea!
