DJ Stewart 2019

They aren't playing service games with a 25 year old outfielder who isn't even among the top three outfield prospects in the system. 

I think they like Wilkerson because of his speed in the outfield and Alberto has kind of been hitting, at least against lefties.  Along with a Davis DFA, one of those two could be sent down to make room for DJ.  

I expect to it to happen soon though.  I would personally keep Wilkerson as the utility IF and DFA Alberto.  DFA'ing Davis is certainly the best option I just don't see it happening yet. 

I hope and did not think they would play service time games with Stewart for all the reasons you state. But if they don’t call him up soon I will seriously start to question their decision making process and wonder if they are manipulating  his service time.

Davis is for sure clogging the roster - I’m afraid of what a healthy Trumbo will do if that ever happens

At least they aren’t clogging up the base paths.

What if they call up Hays instead of Stewart?

That's a harder call.

I agree. But the two moves are not necessarily mutually exclusive. There are scenarios where in a month Hays, Stewart, Sisco, and Mountcastle are all on the roster. Unlikely, of course, but that is a possibility and that team would be a LOT more fun to watch.

Highly unlikely.  But I agree, it's possible.  DFA Davis, DFA Alberto, Option Wynns, and someone to the IL could get you there.  Wilkerson could be optioned instead of Alberto but they would need to keep one of those two for the utility IF. 

I would be very surprised if we saw Mountcastle before September.  Stewart and Sisco I expect in Baltimore very soon and Hays could be up here in July or August if he keeps hitting in Bowie/Norfolk.

Phillies are looking for a left handed bench bat with a little pop.  Smith Jr to the Phils and promote Stewart to play left.  When Hays is ready, he goes to right.

Smith, Hoskins and Bryce would make for a fierce OF.

Stewart is NOT in the Norfolk line up tonight. Nothing confirmed, but the Orioles need a position player and have already optioned Evan Phillips.

Let the countdown begin until Roch posts his "there is a locker set up here."
