Wright making a case for being on the 25 man roster by his production:

 

I know a lot of people dont want to see Wright anywhere near the Orioles roster.  A lot of people also have expectations that a player is going to be a finished product right away.  What we heard 3 years ago was wright had the tools to be a dominate back of the bullpen guy.  I am not going to say 4 innings in ST shows he has become that, but he is definitely a guy you cant dismiss out of frustration with the process.

Maybe fresh blood and different coaches is the difference Wright needed. Yes, 4 innings is a short sample size, especially ST innings.

Remind me, re: Kraemer’s oblique strain.

does “Oblique Strain” lead to significant surgery?

No surgery. Rest and rehab.

This is a lot of work. Thanks!

You are welcome. The plan is to keep this up after every game or two this spring. Hopefully people are enjoying it and using it. Didn't get a lot of feedback from reactions which is how I usually tell if people like something or not, so still not sure about it overall. Still, it actually helps me keep informed so it's a win-win either way.

Dillon Tate and Gabriel Ynoa have had some action since 2/1 FWIW.

Yeah, they are scheduled to pitched today I believe and will fill them in. neither has any real chance of making the team so I really haven't focused on them.

Yes - I got that from your writeup - thanks for that!  That was a great read!

I remember there was one spring training where everyone had an oblique strain. I feel like Jay Payton was on the team that year.

    • Houston has also been able to acquire arms late in the draft or cheaply in the international market and develop them into trade assets. I'm prepping for Rule 5 draft stuff and it's unbelievable how many good arms they have in the minors that came out of nowhere (10+ round pick or older international signees). They all throw hard and miss bats. 
    • Hopefully the Nats finish this thing off today.  They have gone I think 81-40 since starting 19-31.  That is remarkable.  The Cardinals do what they always do in October....overachieve.  Thankfully, they are about to get stuffed by the much better team.  This will be a really good WS matchup regardless of who comes out of the AL. 
    • Eh, I don't really buy that in this case.  Liberatore is a lefty, has better mechanics, and more projection remaining, so I think there is a fair case for Liberatore then and now. It's really close though, Rodriguez is the better pitch at the moment, but no one really cares who is the better pitcher at 19 in low A ball. 
    • The old Liberatore vs Rodriguez debate. I think most “experts” will always try and rank Liberatore slightly higher than Rodriguez because they all criticized the O’s for “reaching” for Rodriguez. 
    • Someone pointed out before that Vaughn got pitched around his last year in NCAA. Let’s see what happens to Torkelson when/if he gets that treatment.  I don’t see how we could draft Torkelson.  Even if we trade Mancini, Mountcastle is still likely a 1B.  When team building I don’t think you pencil in your future 1B and DH spots first.   I’d like to see us draft a bat, but if the best SP is available then I’m open to that. I think that bats are safer picks and would help the system more.  Hopefully Detroit makes a mistake at 1:1 and we get the player Elias thinks is #1 overall. Lots of baseball to play till the draft. 
    • HOU got burned with taking Pitchers Appel and Aiken high. HOU has been grow the bats and buy the arms since then. Using their prospect bats to acquire proven SP.  I do think bats are safer picks over pitchers. Last draft we took lots of bats compared to pitchers. It could’ve been lots of factors at play, but I think it was a strategic decision.  Not having the number one pick in next years’ draft means we’ll likely be deciding on the 2nd best SP, Torkelson, or other NCAA and HS bats.    
    • I hope Buck gets the Phillies job.
