O's next three games vs lefties

Recommended Posts

Paxton and Happ for the Yankees and Richard is listed for the first games vs the Blue Jays.

Will Davis sit all three games in favor on Mancini at 1B with Nunez  DHing because of his sore arm?

Will Alberto start at 3B over Ruiz?

Will Jackson play CF over Mullins?

I think Mullins plays 2/3. He is a SH. 

Mancini plays 1B the next 3 w/Nunez at DH. Unless Nunez is sore or really looks hurt. 

I think we trust Ruiz’s defense. He plays all 3. Maybe Jackson plays 1.

I doubt Davis sits for all 3. I assume at least one game, maybe 2. 

I think Alberto probably gets one start at 3rd. Nunez will be DH for all 3 games. Jackson gets 1/2 starts. Mullins sits one game. Rickard plays all 3 and Smith sits 1-2 games.  

Even Buck who would let Flaherty rot on the bench in the summer would try to get everyone playing time early on.

Idk man, what if Nunez comes out and has a good game?  This isn’t Buck. It would be hard to take out the hot hand. 

I do think you’re right about getting Alberto a start. That will likely come at SS though. Maybe give Martin a mental break for a game.

My thought would be

-sit Davis 2 of 3. Play Mancini at 1B the 2 games he sits and once in LF. 

- start Jackson in OF 2 games, sit Mullins once. Likely the game Davis plays in

-start Smith once, sits 2  

Nunez is DH for all 3 and Rickard starts all 3.  

They may give Alberto a start at SS, good idea. I could see him starting once at 3rd and once at SS.

Happ has much better numbers vs LHB than Paxton. Especially last 2 seasons. 

Richard isn’t that good in general and his splits aren’t anything special. The day for sure to sit the lefties is vs Happ.

I do wish CD would be benched for Mancini at 1st.

Since Trumbo is on DL why not make Davis the DH when he has to play?

I would like to see Jackson play in all three games. Based on usage in spring and yesterday, he could replace Smith Jr or Mullins in the OF. Replacing Mullins would give you a switch hitter to come off the bench. He could also replace Ruiz.

Nunez could replace Davis and play either 1B or DH. Will be interesting to see whether Mancini plays any 1B or if they will use him as full time DH.

I am anxious to see Jackson hit ML pitching. He led the team in hits in spring training.

    • I don't know what to say without seeing him, but I doubt he is protected. And even if he is picked, I doubt he would stick for the entire year. That said, if he really has turned some corners, then there is room. It may be at the expense of another prospect, though. 
    • Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but I didn’t see it. Was two weeks before this thread.  
    • And the Rays announcers are really good. Much better than the buffoons who chatter during Os games
    • This is a really gripping series. I’ve never been so engaged by two teams I don’t really care about... although I want the Rays to win, of course. The Dodgers and Nats are the evil children of the NL.
    • It is in the last 30 seconds of this 50-minute podcast, but FWIW they had the Hartford (Rockies AA) play by play guy as a guest Nevin expert, and skimming Vavra at the end he said he thought Vavra would have had a good chance to make the Yard Goats this year (i.e., do the Low-A to AA double bump in 2020). The other Nevin nuggets were August 2019 Eastern League Player of the Month, and giving the near 1B only 2019 positional context as in part being driven by having Colton Welker as a teammate.    
    • Nice to hear the tidbits on Baumler from the Instructional League.  I know folks are going to point out the nature of what is reported is overwhelmingly positive, and they are right, of course.  Still, this last draft was performed with heavy analytics and without in person or in competition video for the spring 2020 season in college and HS baseball and without in-person workouts.  IMO, the positive comments are an early vindication of our draft strategy and the two HS prospects we invested big $ in with the expectation that they were essentially second or third round talents.  The early word from various quotes from Matt Blood is that Mayo and Baumler are who we thought/hoped they were or better. 
    • I don't see him getting picked.  Do we have the space on the 40 man for him?
