It's time to cut the cord with Wright.  Last thing I want to see is Mike Wright blow a game in April to cost the Orioles a wildcard spot.  

Wright can be a beast in short outings. Sitting mid 90’s. He starts out in the “B” squad reliever role.

If so they have to be willing to lose someone.  Araujo isn’t leaving. 

Do you think perhaps Wright clears waivers if he is sent down?

DFA Wright on the 28th and hope nobody picks him?

I don't recall Wright getting a bump in stuff when pitching out of the pen.

In fact i remember being disappointed about it.

I'd do that then.

R - Brach, Givens, O’Day, Wright, Araujo

L - Bleier, Cortes

Arajuo has the rest of ST and maybe 2-3 outings until Cobb is ready. The guy is going to have to be lights out.

He’s never going to be that 98 mph we saw in his first two starts. But sitting 94-95 could be enough. Give him time to get used to how much he can push himself and we get 6 cheap years of Tommy Hunter.

I don't know if he did it on purpose or not but the market played right into DD's hands

Two solid starting pitchers (three if Tillman does Well) for solid prices and a bunch of complimentary pieces to fill some holes.

I think we go with this as well. 

They'll give Wright an extended look out of the pen while stretching out Castro at AAA and keeping Araujo and Cortes. Makes too much sense.

You could go with 13 pitchers if you don't carry a MI.

Castro and Givens are the only guys in the pen with options. Not a lot of room for shenanigans.

Idunno... Wright would be the bottom of the pecking order for me.  I might even swap him out for Donnie Hart so the club has a third lefty option in the pen until Britton comes back.

That kid isn’t going anywhere unless he falls apart.

    • It’s a supply and demand thing.  Whether someone offers X amount of dollars is irrelevant.  The Os And their structure, could use his bat and his production.   Most teams don’t have that combo of at bats and money they can spend on a player with his skill set.     The Os do...and the idea that other teams chose not to do it is irrelevant to his value to this organization.  The idea that they may be looking into Puig (conjecture) and brought on a LH DH type at REINFORCES the idea that this is salary driven, not producing driven imo.     My only argument with this decision is that this isn’t solely or even largely driven by roster management despite what Elias says.  He is lying for management.
    • Your tone of authority when you are clearly in a fog is admirable.  Anyone who thought his arbitration number was a bargain, as you suggest, could have offered a warm body to secure his services before he hit the open market.  What won't make sense is if any team offers him 2M or more now that he's available to any team that wants him.
    • There are three vaccines, possibly four or five, if you trust the Chinese and Russians. Every factory on the world is going to be producing them. We may delay the start of spring training(only three months away) but I don’t think the season will start late. We may have distanced crowds, though.
    • No, it absolutely is the formula and what’s he’s worth.  That’s a fact. However, there are only a few teams that need a DH, so it’s not surprising that the market isn’t there..plus, you have announced that you are cutting him, so why trade for him with so little completion?
    • Nevin may get reps at 3B, LF, and DH.  Shaw fits in well as a 1B, LF, DH option too
