The Orioles Should Trade Gausman at the Deadline

Recommended Posts

Considering what the Padres just got for Hand I'm inclined to agree with you. Partly because I don't ever think Gausman will take that "next step". That said, I still think the Orioles are too concerned about their 2019 rotation to trade him...and they really shouldn't be. Maybe Dan will prove us wrong.

His value is significant with 2 years of control remaining and his premium stuff (some teams see a greater upside). I think his value is at least on par with Sonny Gray last year. Gray returned 3 top 100 prospects (although two were injured at the time). 

Since the Orioles have announced a rebuild, I think it's smart to move controllable pieces if they have significant value. There isn't much in the way of available controllable starters, especially if the Mets don't decide to move one of their elite starters.

I agree with the thought, but I would actually prefer to trade Bundy. I think Bundy brings back a better return, and I trust Gausman's durability a lot more.

Agreed, wholeheartedly.

I hear you, but I think other organizations also trust Gausman's durability, Bundy's medicals are scary, that would hurt the return.

Gray was 7 games over .500, had a 3.61 FIP and was 26 years old prior to the trade.

Gausman is 9 games under .500, has a 4.14 FIP and is 27 years old.

All signs point to Gausman getting a lower return than the A's got for Gray

I would still see who we could get but I'm not certain it would be enough to justify it.

Until you remember Gray was coming off of an injury at the time of the trade and hasn't been nearly as good as he was before the injury.

Bundy potentially brings a better return because he has an extra year of team control, but he still has the upside to be an All-Star which could be a difference maker if we are competing in three years (or if he makes the leap he could improve his trade value in a way Gausman can't). Plus Bundy's trade value is hurt by durability concerns in a way that Gausman's isn't. Gausman is who he is, a mid-rotation starter. Bundy could still be more.

I just think we're too far into the season to move Gausman. Deadline is coming up and unless someone comes out super aggressive for him he'd be more of an offseason trade guy if we were to move him.

Yup I agree I think we've seen Gausman's ceiling, But I don''t think it will bring back a Gray like return?

Gray also didn’t pitch in the East and pitched in a canyon of a ballpark

I agree that Gray was more attractive than Gausman is now.   Would I listen to offers?    You betcha.

I'd trade any player, including Bundy, Givens, and Gausman... naturally, for a quality return. Let's not make the same mistake with these guys that we did with Manny and Britton, which was holding on to them too long.

    • Life has really been showing me lately that I am old. I used to post a bunch at one time. Now I usually just read what posters have to say. I am in the process of moving from Florida to Wisconsin complicated by having a heart problem a week ago. When I get settled up there I will renew my long overdue subscription. I will probably never post like I used to as I coach football and in Florida that is basically year round.  I do really miss the conversations with bunch of guys on here that I used to participate in. Just haven't felt like I had kept up well enough to contribute much. But this is the best site on the Web I'm and has been for decades.
    • Tony:  Let me add that I would be willing to contribute more to keep the site going.  I know it is not completely a financial decision but if it will help I am willing to contribute.  I also there could be a creative way to keep it going in some form or another.  
    • Just take 2020 off and come back fresh when the O’s are respectable again.
    • I've been a member of this site for 12 years now, and before that I lurked for quite awhile.  This was the go to site for me.  Through this site I learned so much over the years, and the shared experiences I had here are priceless, and I wouldn't change it for anything in the world.  Tony (and the staff), thank you so so much for everything you've done throughout the years.  I hope that this site can continue and wouldn't mind at all a raising of the plus membership price if it means the site could continue.  If it doesn't, I will understand Tony.  You've brought me and countless other users knowledge, joy, and companionship.  For that we are very blessed.
    • Here's a series of brief notes on the DFAed players with significant team control remaining. In order of preference for the Orioles...(top 5 would be a clear back of the 40 man upgrade IMO, although Cotton and Greene are projects rather than immediate improvements) Luis Escobar 23yo, mid 90s, overpronated fastball with big horizontal, makings of two quality but low spin offspeed pitches Montana DuRapau 27yo super premium spin guy, 4 pitch 5'11" righty, needs to use curveball more, better. Jharel Cotton 27yo 5 pitch former top prospect, led by a elite changeup, been injured, reclaimation project, maybe in the pen Justin Shafer 27yo, solid pitch mix including above avg spin mid 90s FB, slider, hard cutter (90mph), rare change. Strikethrower, but lacks command Conner Greene 24yo righty, big stuff, mid-rotation or late inning, has never been able to throw enough strikes Nick Dini 26yo Bat first catcher, but not an everyday bat. fringe average catch and throw, questionable framing, better than Wynns maybe Drew Gagnon 29yo super low spin 4S FB, uses it up when he shouldn't, good changeup. Could be useful, limited upside Williams Jerez 27yo Mid-90s lefty, low spin FB, that he elevates and gets crushed, quality split, and a usable slider, poor command Taylor Guerrieri 26yo with premium curveball spin and solid command who lost the zone in 2019. Nestor Cortes Jr 24yo command and deception lefty, good k/bb, flyball pitcher hurt by juiced ball CD Pelham 24yo hard throwing lefty reliever, has t100, couldn't throw strikes in 2019 Arnaldo Hernandez 23yo righty, good changeup, hasn't been used in relief, doesn't work as a starter Dario Agrazal 24yo blah command based sinkerballer without a strikeout pitch Jorge Bonifacio 26yo plus run, fringe average glove COF, hit a little, but not enough Nick Martini 29yo LF with some bat control but without LF power
