Grayson Rodriguez 2018

Recommended Posts

Grayson Rodriguez debuted in the GCL today, pitching a scoreless inning, walking two and striking out one.     Glad he’s getting his feet wet.   I believe the O’s plan to bring him to Aberdeen eventually.

Hobgood part deux but much worse bc the other pitchers available here could have real strong upside. Frustrating, but wish him the best.

True, huge sample size in the minors so far. Glad you’re not rushing to judgment.

Come on, you are better than comments like that. At least wait until you see him pitch professionally to write him off.

You are like Webbrick Part Deux, but without the baseball knowledge.

Don't really get why Rodriguez is limited to 1 inning while fellow high schooler Drew Rom has gone 4 innings in each of his first 2 starts.  I'm all about monitoring innings and taking it easy if necessary but it's not like that helped Harvey and Bundy prevent injury.

I wouldn’t worry about that.   This season is just about Rodriguez getting his feet wet at the professional level.   DL Hall only pitched 10.1 innings last year, and he’s cruising along quite nicely this year.   Every situation is different, depending on the pitcher’s workload before he signed and other factors.

Hey, if Grayson does bomb, Rene88 gets to say he was on record first calling it.

It’s not him I don’t have faith in. There were 3 stud pitchers we passed on. We picked a no hit/all glove SS with the 1st round supplemental. I have zero faith in this org’s judgement.

That sure is a negative legacy to claim!!

The defenders all lined up for Hobgood too and vanished when he failed. Saying I have zero faith in the kid is not accurate, and people know this. I have zero faith in this org.

    • At the end of the day, you guys are right. The market dictates the value and the market decided he was not worth what he was going to get in arbitration. Whether his previous production and age suggests he SHOULD be worth that, the market decided it was not. 
    • I'm not going to lie, but that is up there for one of the greatest lines in Hangout history.
    • I agree.    If you let Nunez go, it shouldn’t be primarily because of cost.    Now, if you think you can get equivalent or better production for your roster cheaper, that is okay.  But you don’t make your team worse over $2 mm or less.     It’s going to be interesting to see what happens with Nunez.    There’s going to be a lot of players on the market after the non-tender deadline I suspect.    I do think he’ll get a major league contract somewhere and will get above the minimum, but it might be less than he was projected to get in arbitration.     
    • Shaw would not crack our top 30.
    • With the injury histories of Hays, Santander and relative inexperience with mixed results of Mullins and Stewart, I'm not sure we can say that. No Nunez did clear waivers and no one traded for him so perhaps there is something else going on here with him, but the guy has been a pretty productive bat and is just going to be 27 years old next year. Either way, I get what you are saying about Shaw and I agree, I think Elias will end up DFAing him and trying to keep him in the system.
    • I'm not excited that the team is making moves because guys are cheap, especially when the other option is around $2 million, which should be chump change for major league organizations. I'm just not sure I get this particular set of skills. Now perhaps Elias is going to DFA him and try to sneak him into the minor league system as depth. I guess there are worse guys to do this with, but I really would like to think this is a transition year where the Orioles are starting to bring up guys that will be contributors to a winning future and not place holders.
    • This is actually incorrect. As of now, there is no DH in the NL in 2021, so he wouldn’t have a ton of value to teams over there.  If NL teams knew the DH was happening for them in 2021, maybe they would have found a suitor. And we don’t know that someone won’t pay him 1-2M in 2021.  We just know that no one was willing to trade for him and pay him that money.  Big difference. In any case, he’s not expensive.  The average MLB salary in 2020 was almost 4.5M.  He would have been paid well under that number.  In fact, with MLB minimum salary close to 600k, he will get paid much closer to the minimum salary than the average salary.  So no, he’s not expensive at all.
