We need “quality” innings form someone. Cashner gave us that for half a season. What makes you think, I think a 5 inning average is not an innings eater on the 2020 Orioles?
I think the bullpen will be depleted by June with or without him.
Don’t really care either way. But definitely think, why not?
Cause I hate watching him pitch?
And "innings eaten" is a myth. Dude hardly makes it past the 5th, barely makes it into the 6th. Has never cracked 200 innings, hasn't come particularly close since his career high in innings which he achieved in 2015. Would be hard pressed to get 150 innings out of him, 175 innings would be amazing. He'd be part of the reason the bullpen is blown out and depleted by June.
I doubt any of the Norfolk pitchers (other than Akin) will be ready before August. I'd love to see someone like Cashner added to the rotation. I just don't believe the storyline that paying Cashner for one season will mean less money for player development.
Why not, my memory says he did fairly well in the BP in the second half and we need multiple multi-inning guys to eat innings.
Brocail is still here and he has sprinkled magic dust on Cashner twice already
Ditto to all these other comments. We’ve had sporadic reports from the GCL and MiL spring training from a few posters over the years, but it will be great having some detailed, regular coverage. Your opening post shows that you’re a keen observer and I already learned a lot just reading that.
One guy I’d like to hear more about is Jake Zebron. He had a nice GCL debut in 2018 and I was slightly disappointed that they had him repeat last summer rather than moving him up to Aberdeen. However, it was somewhat understandable since Zebron was still two years younger than almost every pitcher on Aberdeen’s staff. I’d love to hear more about what Zebron throws and what his potential might be.
