Orioles to be more active in International Free Agent Market

Recommended Posts

I do suppose it's possible for someone to make some strides and be worth signing between now and next July.  The money could also be used in case they want to sign a 16 year old out of Korea.

So the money expires a year after they acquire it? Or is there a signing period? Sorry for the questions. Since the Orioles never used it really, I'm in the dark.

Signing period July 1st starts it.   Which why Mess will be able to even though he isn’t yet.  Mlb won’t make him wait all year.

It's usable until July next year on everyone eligible before then.

Alexander Ramirez is also still not signed he is top 30 guy as well.  

Do you know of any reason why he's not signed, i.e. PED's or wanting too much money?

It wouldn't surprise me if Dan has a trick up his sleeve and has a beat on a few under the radar guys that will be legit.

So what happened to all those International Free Agent signings we were on the verge of announcing last week and the week before that.

The same thing that happens every year at this time?

I guess someone could scour the DSL rosters.

Have we even announced a signing at the 300k level?  The Yankees have like 30 of those guys signed the last time I saw a list. That’s means that we’re already behind for this year, even if we do sign Mesa. We have $5.5 million to spend in international slot money and there isn’t really too many guys left to spend it on.

    • I would not think so. We got a lot for Givens. 
    • 8 games left and he is now at 92 at-bats after getting 3 at-bats in each of the last 3 games (11 plate appearances total). Helps keep the at-bats down when the team can't score any runs. Would need 38 at-bats over the final 8 games to lose rookie/prospect eligibility. Mountcastle has only had 5 at-bats in 3 games thus far this season, so the chances of him getting 5 at-bats in 6 of his final 8 games are pretty much non-existent. 
    • As of 9-19 Sisco  0 PB 13 WP -3 dRS -2.7 dWAR  Overall 0.3 fWAR Severino  5 PB 15 WP -1DRS dWAR. 04 Overall .7 fWAR  I included wild pitches Because it can be debatable whether the blame should be on the catcher or the pitcher, but Sisco Is clearly better at stopping pitches. But neither of these guys will make any other team go googly eyed.
    • This is where Sisco is today the 19th. He has improved, in K and BB rats especially, but I don’t think anyone is going to be in a rush to trade anything meaningful for him. His defense remains bad and he offers nothing as a runner.  32.4 K rate .340 BABIP .235 AVG .381 OBP 125 WRC .03 fWAR
    • I’m pretty sure he would be claimed, but that would actually be good for the Orioles. If he does, he gets the benefit of coaching from the new team, and we can watch him develop, or not, on a real life stage. If it is unlikely that he does well Enough to stick, when he returns to us, we will have had the benefit of the empty roster spot, but also the benefit another team coaching, and whatever experience he has on the major league stage, if he gets that far. And when he returns to us, we will have that much more knowledge and can deal with him more effectively. Of course there’s always the risk that he makes it all the way with his new team, and I guess that’s the risk we have to take. After all, TJ McFarland has had a pretty good career throwing in the upper 80s.
    • Severino is the one of those that I can best imagine attaining some actual market value. https://blogs.fangraphs.com/2020-positional-power-rankings-catcher/ The team will need to wait out the Realmuto bidding for the good teams that need a catcher.  If we just guess the Phillies retain, the bottom-tier catching situations from this summer on clubs that perhaps mean to contend in 2021 look like: COL - happy to do business with them again DET - Schoop repping the former Oriole brand well WAS - haha.  Imagine the WS tenure helps the incumbents CIN - will try not to have a Tyler Mahle infatuation here, they could maybe use Alberto too.  Nunez as fill-in with Votto salary relief? NYM - ibid Colorado HOU - do Elias Sig still have some nuanced favorites even James Click doesn't have his arms around yet?
