Players Who Were Outrighted From 40 Man Rosters - Free Agents

Recommended Posts

Are there any players on this list we should have any interest in signing?

 

PLAYERS ELECTING FREE AGENCY

By Jeff Todd | October 8, 2018 at 7:20pm CDT

Quite a few players will hit the open market this fall, and they’ll do so by way of varying mechanisms. The end of the regular season triggered a recent wave of free agents, consisting of a certain subset of players — namely, those who were outrighted from 40-man rosters during the season and accepted minor-league assignments at that time despite having the right to elect free agency. Players in that situation are entitled instead to hit the open market at season’s end, if they were not added back to the 40-man roster in the meantime.

As conveyed by Matt Eddy of Baseball America, who also covers quite a few other minor moves, these players have now elected free agency:

Athletics: RHP Raul Alcantara, LHP Danny Coulombe

Blue Jays: RHP Mike Hauschild, INF/OF Darnell Sweeney

Braves: LHP Rex Brothers, RHP Miguel Socolovich

Cardinals: LHP Tyler Lyons

Indians: RHP Evan Marshall, RHP Alexi Ogando

Mariners: RHP Christian Bergman, LHP Ross Detwiler, RHP Mike Morin, INF Zach Vincej

Marlins: OF JB Shuck

Mets: RHP Chris Beck, OF Bryce Brentz, RHP Scott Copeland, OF Matt den Dekker, INF Ty Kelly

Nationals: LHP Tommy Milone, OF Moises Sierra, RHP Carlos Torres

Orioles: RHP Jhan Marinez, INF Luis Sardinas

Padres: OF Matt Szczur

Phillies: INF Trevor Plouffe

Pirates: LHP Buddy Boshers, RHP Casey Sadler, RHP A.J. Schugel

Rangers: C Juan Centeno, LHP Anthony Gose, RHP Drew Hutchison, INF Tommy Joseph, RHP Chris Rowley

Rays: INF Brandon Snyder, RHP Ryan Weber

Reds: C Tim Federowicz, RHP Kevin Quackenbush

Tigers: INF Dixon Machado, RHP Jacob Turner

White Sox: RHP Tyler Danish

They may want to sign Tyler Lyons 30 who enjoyed success with St Louis from 2015-2017.

Danny Coulombe 28 recently with Oakland is also worth considering.

For ST invites, looking for depth, I'd pick upTyler Lyons, Bryce Bentz, Ty Kelly, Buddy Boshers, Drew Hutchinson, Brandon Snyder, and Kevin Quackenbush, 

I'd resign Luis Sardinas

A team like the Orioles is going to need some stop-gaps for development purposes.  Why not bring someone in like Trevor Plouffe to be a bridge to Mountcastle?  I know he's not any good, but he can at least allow Mountcastle to develop at AAA.

Just don't bring in anyone you won't feel comfortable cutting in June.

Exactly... if Mountcastle gets off to a blistering start in the minors, bring him up.

I’d appreciate it so I can still wear my jersey.

Never works though....I’ve been waiting on the Ravens to sign a WR/TE named Smith for years...

Waiting for another McFarland .... sigh!  (but I bought it because I knew it'd be cheaper).  Scots are thrrrrrrrrifty!

One of these players will be picked up by a new team and molded into an All-Star by a beefed up analytics department and I'll be jealous.
