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.

    • Hard to put much stock into what guys like Al Davis says. There is a host of reasons for the team to say in Baltimore. Just because there is a wild arse rumor floating that the team is looking into moving, doesnt make it true, or a probability, either.
    • I want to believe this is true, but I can't get over the fact that Jaime Moyers come along very infrequently, and most often as guys who used to throw harder but have transitioned to pitchability types at the end of their careers. He's not very high on my personal list even though he's clearly an exceptional MiL pitcher. Hopefully I'm wrong.
    • I was worried about the injuries.  Wasn't a risk I was willing to take that high.
    • I was thinking about this the other day. There were quite a few people here that felt like he was the better pick at the time. I really didn't post much then, or now either, but I really liked him as a player.    Bundy was a good selection at the time. He's had a decent career in the grand scheme of things, just not on the level of Rendon.
    • He sounds very much like Ryan Mountcastle, at a high level at least. Profiles as a bat first guy who won't stick at short. With that said, hopefully he doesn't have an obviously deficient arm like Mountcastle. If he turns into a 3B eventually, which is what it sounds like to me, that bat could be a real plus. A ton of development between now and then though. I'd expect them to take it slow with him.
    • Kinga Glyk is the name of the bassist.
    • Am curious your opinion... Mine was generally that hard contact is the hardest skill to teach, and that transferring from contact to power was easier than the opposite. When you have a straight power approach and you're on, it's glorious. However, when you're not in a groove, it gets really ugly. I don't recommend that approach for pretty much anyone. Even supremely talented hitters like Giancarlo Stanton can lose value quickly when they lose the line drive approach to their game. Alternatively, when you're making hard line drive contact regularly, it's easier to let yourself go and crush some balls, IMO. It's when you do too much of that approach that your swing starts to develop real holes. Well, this is all my personal experience, at least.
