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?

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 guess the O's hadn't used the cheating technology yet.        
    • Does Cashner require an MLB deal?  Colon would at least draw some press. 
    • I think that was a great win.  Indiana scored on every single trip down the floor to start the second half.  It had to be 13 times down and 13 scores.  Even when they missed, they got the offensive rebound and scored.  I don't think they even made any free throws in that stretch.....it was all made baskets. Sometimes, the other team just decides to try harder and stops missing shots and they did a great job.  This had loss written all over it, so I have to give credit to the Terps for winning a game that they should have lost....which is very rare in the Turge era. 
    • I did in fact create a spreadsheet.     As mentioned, many of the pitchers were on the BA list more than once.    So, I've sorted them into four buckets according to the highest ranking they attained. BA 1-25:  30 pitchers achieved this level, and that group averaged 12.5 rWAR.     Of the 31 pitchers I categorized as "reliable starters," from this bucket you have four of the No. 1 Studs (Kershaw, Price, Strasburg and Bumgarner), one of the Solid No. 2's (Teheran), two of the Mid-Rotation guys (Buchholz and Porcello) and eight of the Middle/Back of Rotation guys (Bailey, Anderson, Tillman, Cahill, M. Perez, Hellickson, Moore and Wheeler).    So, that's 15 of the 30 who became reliable starting pitchers by my definition.  Two of the Stud Relievers, Davis and Chapman, also came from this bucket. BA 26-50: 26 pitchers achieved this level and the group averaged 7.3 rWAR.    The group includes one No. 1 Stud (Cueto), four Solid No. 2's (Gonzalez, Carrasco, Zimmermann and Chacin), one Mid-Rotation guy (Kennedy) and three Mid/Back of Rotation guys (Jurrjens, Holland and Gibson).    Nine out of 26 became reliable starters.   Stud reliever Britton also came from this category. BA 51-75: 23 pitchers reached this level, averaging 6.1 rWAR.   They include one No. 1 Stud (Scherzer), one Solid No. 2 (Arrieta), one Mid-Rotation guy (Leake), and two Mid/Back of Rotation guys (Niese and Cashner).   5 of 23 became reliable starters. BA 76-100: 20 pitchers were in this bucket.    Only two became reliable starters: Samardzija in the Mid-Rotation category and Jonathan Niese in the Mid/Back of Rotation category. Hall and Rodriguez both fall into the second bucket for now, though it's possible they could move up in future years.
