Recommended Posts

https://www.mlbdailydish.com/2019/4/5/18297337/orioles-sign-dan-straily-to-major-league-contract-per-source

*********************************************

Just released by the Marlins. 

30 yr old SP, 4.12 ERA last year in 122 IP. 

I'd certainly take this guy to chew innings. $5 M thru 2019 - not clear if Marlins would be on the hook or if we have to claim him.

Made 33 starts in 2017, good for 181 IP. 

This seems like a no brainer to me, but I'm still not clear if we'd have to sign him or claim him.

If we claim him I imagine we're on the hook for the rest of his salary.   Which still seems pretty cheap.

But I mean............

We also weren't willing to offer Gio Gonzalez a $3M contract apparently so............................I doubt we will be in on this, despite how much sense it seems to make.

Well that's certainly a good point. The "released" phrasing makes me think we'd just have to sign him for the minimum, but I'm not sure. Let's see what the MLBTR article says.

Gio has more question marks about his future, than the Strally, who is 3 years younger.

If Gio's already degrading, what would be left for him in 2 to 3 years? This team doesn't need somebody for 1 to 2 years.

Gio was worth over 2 WAR last year.   That is insane value for $3M.    If you're a rebuilding team..........imagine what you can with an insanely undervalued asset.......... that's worth at least $20M in extra international signing slots!

fangraphs is not too bullish on him:

Quote

Profile: 2017 seemed a bit off with a 1.50 point separation between Gio Gonzalez's ERA and SIERA despite a near two-point drop in fastball velocity, and 2018 served Gonzalez a plate of regression that is sure to discourage many for the upcoming year. Gonzalez's walk rate soared over 10% for the first time in eight years, his strikeout rate fell under 20% for the first time, and his 1.44 WHIP was its highest since 2009. His repertoire suffered greatly from a huge step back in his curveball, a pitch that routinely earned swings-and-misses held just a 9% swinging-strike rate last year, forcing Gonzalez to turn to his decent changeup more often as a put-away pitch. Without that big hook in his back-pocket, it will be tough for Gonzalez to return quality innings with a sub 90mph fastball and middling changeup and we may see Gonzalez go the way of James Shields and Ubaldo Jimenez shortly.

I can certainly accept that there are advanced metrics showing that Gio is trending in the wrong direction.

And then I see Mike Wright.    

If I were betting which player is more likely to provide more value for 2019.......I know where I'm placing my bet.   If we had 5 better options than Gio / Straily then I would likely not care nearly as much.

Seems like a no brainer to claim him and DFA Wright...

    • Hmmm. I see three things as delaying our rebuild: bringing up any prospect too soon( Although I don’t care about service time issues, if a guy’s ready, bring him up) signing any high dollar free agent, and trading away prospects. So don’t do those things. (The Straily/Karns signings were exactly what we needed even though they both failed. But several other inexpensive pickups worked reasonably well) With that in mind, I would like to win as many games as possible without jeopardizing our future. 70 wins is better than 50. Do whatever three things will help that goal.
    • It doesn’t slow down the game.  That fired me up.  It was great to see an Oriole play with such emotion.
    • Good lord, that's a lot. lol  I love his talent (not really a fan of his attitude, though), but I don't wanna be the one who gives up that much for him.   I find it ironic that both Tunsil and Ramsey are good enough to get their teams this kind of return considering Ozzie passed on both of them.  Do you think Ozzie thinks Ramsey is worth that 3rd rounder now? lol  Just remember, that 3rd rounder he refused to give up ended up being Kaufusi ... lol    
    • Starting tomorrow night!    Interesting, but I like out of the box thinking.   Let’s see how it goes. 
    • o   This was the 3rd consecutive start in which Ynoa was very pitch-efficient.     19 OUTS: ) 9 Flyouts, 5 Groundouts (Including 2 Double Plays), 1 Strikeout, 1 Popout, 1 Lineout      GABRIEL YNOA  GOMEZ )))))) (vs. BLUE JAYS, 9/19) IP:lll6.33 H:llll 6 )) (2 Home Runs, 1 Double, 3 Singles) R:lllll 3 BB:l.0 ) * SO:lll1 Pitches: )l 77) (51 )Strikes, )26 )Balls) 2019 ERA: )l 5.65 )l) 106.67 IP  (67 ER) 2019 WHIP: )l 1.369 )l )  106.67 IP  (146 H/BB) 2019 OPPONENTS BATTING AVG: )l .281 ))  (122 for 434)   * )) Ynoa had 1 Hit Batsman   PITCHES BY INNING ******************* 11 ll(71 llStrikes, lll4 llBalls) 12 lll(81 lStrikes, llll4 llBalls) 61 ll(51 llStrikes, llll1 llBalls) 17 lll(10 llStrikes, llll7 llBalls) 11 lll(61 llStrikes, lll.5 llBalls) 13 lll(91 llStrikes, lll.4 llBalls) 71 lll(61 llStrikes, lll.1 llBalls)) **   ** )) Ynoa recorded 1 out before departing in the 7th inning.   o
    • Mancini went 4 gotr 4 with two doubles and an HBP tonight, raiding his OPS to .892.   That’s the highest it’s been since July 2.   Would love to see him crank it to over .900 at the end of the season.
