Will Araujo Make The Team?

Recommended Posts

I think he’s expendable. I wonder if they’d keep him on for 17 days and then try to pass him through waivers.

It isn't the 12 days I'm concerned about.  It's the spot on the 40.

In Mike I trust.

What if we need to drop somebody from the 40 man who we think is more valuable than Araujo?

Why would we need to do that?  Araujo is already on the 40-man.

I wasn’t clear.   Assume we need to add someone to the 40-man roster and we need to drop someone.   Are we going to keep Araujo just because he’s a Rule 5 guy, or are we going to drop him if he’s the least valuable guy on there?

I don't know. I kind of doubt any of the waiver claims we might grab are that important. Or doubt that any of our players we need to DFA might not pass thru waivers. Or c'est la vie. Like tnt said, In Mike We Trust. It just seems silly we've kept Araujo all year, 73(?) official days worth. What's 17 more?

Is he an asset?

 

I've always liked his change up. I think its an out pitch.  However, with all these talks of spin rate, who knows how much Elias and his guys value the change up.  I believe he will be on the roster.  Does he need to be on the team for 17 days or games? If its 17 days, that puts us at April 13th.  Put him at AA/AAA for a season and learn the analytics system like everyone else and see if he's a piece.

Pretty sure it's days.

There's another question! Does he make the team? Playing like a mo-fo.

He has a better track record than Dan... Not as Forrest Gump-y either.

    • I've really enjoyed the prospect lists. The prospect lists are my favorite thing to look forward too. There's so few sites that offer such great information about organizational prospects especially many that aren't on many of the top lists. I'm really interested to see Welk in his first full season and how quickly the organization pushes him given his age. Also, I wonder if they think about moving Blaine Knight who I think is probably too small to move forward as a starter and Hanifee to the pen? I really hope that Hanifee who is a local kid who grew up in Cecil before moving to Virginia takes a step forward next year.
    • I've been intrigued by Cotton. IIRC, I believe Gagnon is close to signing with a Korean team.
    • I would say Hernaiz, but Tony was so high on him that he is already pretty high up the list.  If Stauffer comes out next year and shows he can hold his stuff and perform as a starter, he's basically Kremer with a better changeup. So that'd be a jump. McLarty or Welk are potential jumpers, McLarty could easily to come out a throw 92-95 with average or better command and a solid 3 pitch mix as a starter, that would part him in as a #5 SP projection. Which would put him as a 45 (11-17th in this year's list). Welk could show he is an average glove at 3B, 55 hit, 45 power, that's probably a second division 3B, a 45 (11-17th in this year's list). Fenter is kind of a similar skill set as Baumann (curve instead of slider out pitch) but a little less stuff, so if he moves fast and performs he could be Baumann with a little more age and relief risk. That's a 45. I won't list guys off the 30 because I don't want to spoil a future article, but needless to say there are plenty of potential jumpers there. To respond to @Frobby's post, when I sent my personal 30 to Tony to start the process of integrating our thoughts, I included 20 guys that I had in the same tier as the last 4 guys on my 30. My tiers are a little different than the final list. 
    • Also it is amazing that we lost our pitching and bullpen coach because Brady thought they were the reason Wright wasn’t succeeding. 
    • I predict he gets shelled in the KBO.  He is no Tyler Wilson. 
    • I don’t see that at all.  
    • Buck was making something like 4 million a year.  Hyde probably makes several million less than that. Elias probably makes less than DD.  Brady’s salary is gone.  I am sure they are highly profitable. When the Astros were tanking they were most profitable team in MLB.
