Not a terrible depth signing.  I wonder if he's the left handed hitting outfielder they've been talking up a storm about all offseason. 

 

 

Poor fielding outfield who has a career .700 OPS against Right Handed pitching.  Hopefully not the guy they were talking about but probably is.

Oh yeah, I definitely hope this isn't their big offensive signing.  I guess if anything, it would signal that RF is Hays' to lose.

Ok hitter, contact guy, not a ton of pop. Seems to be a below average defender.

Very Oriole-y signing.  I tweeted at Rich Dubroff as to whether he thinks this is theLHH outfielder they've been talking about adding.  To me, he's fine as depth but not a guy to count on.

Hays has to be doing cartwheels right now.  

If they sign a legit OF he starts at AAA.

I still hope we see Gonzalez on a one year deal to give Hayes some time to develop and force his way on the team. Presley, I hope, is pretty far down the depth chart.

Minor league deal with spring training invite.  So no, he's not the lefty OF they've been talking about.

He'll start in Norfolk, get called up when an OF is injured, and be DFAd when the other guy returns.

    • This is what I've been working on. Ready, Steady, GO! from the 60's. I'd guess no later than '65, Gerry and the Pacemakers' absolute zenith... playlist: Stones with Brian still Beatles introducing PJ Proby doing  "Walkin' The Dog"!!! backed up by The Vernons Girls (sounds like The Go-Gos...) Cilla Black doing the standard Gerry and the Pacemakers Donovan! Sounds Incorporated Long John Baldry doing "Got My Mojo Workin'"! and that's all just the first 15 minutes!   Ready, Steady, GO!  
    • That’s fine and true, but the Rays are the best in the biz at developing talent. If they’ve given up on him, it’s fair to think they exhausted all the possibilities first. I think Grenier might not pan out, and Hall is still a couple years off, so if the Os think they see something worthwhile,  Wander certainly has some appeal.  
    • A good swing is not defined by the results. Also, remember that SF Giants are not know to produce good young hitters through draft and development. If you are the Orioles, you have to believe in your coaches and development staff when compared with other teams. With this much in his tank, you have to take a shot on a big power guy like this.  I watched some Spring Training at bats as well. He hit 4-5 HR's in the last few years. One video had him on the same field as Hanser Alberto in February 2019, lol.
    • Ummm, it seems not.
    • I got a axe-handle pistol On a graveyard frame That shoot tombstone bullets Wearin' balls and chains I'm drinkin' TNT I'm smokin' dynamite I HOPE some screwball... start a fight! Because I'm ready Readyas anybody can be. actually a Willie Dixon song...
    • Apparently it’s not that obvious or someone would have traded for him.   The market for WAR is not linear, even if you can make the argument that it should be.   
    • Considering he only hit 153, you must’ve watched an awful lot of at bats before you got to that home run.   edit: Let me say again then I’m not complaining about the move, I just don’t see it as being necessary. Any waiver pick up is essentially risk free, so there’s no reason not to do it, I just didn’t know why we had interest in a power guy who hasn’t been able to hit in the majors, although it is a small sample size. Power is useless if you can’t hit the ball.1
