Bruno and Cowan declare pro

Recommended Posts

In today's college landscape, it's really hard to improve your stock between your junior and senior seasons.  I think he might go and just milk a career in Europe. If he gets lucky he might latch onto an NBA G-League team and then pick up a cup of coffee in the big show.  I don't think it would be the wrong decision for him to go, though that obviously depends on what he can get going for him in the pro scene.

If I understand correctly, there is a new rule that now allows you to declare for the draft even if you hire an agent, as long as you back out by May 31st or something. So really they're not gone yet, I'd imagine Cowan will be back still but still was surprising. If he's gone I'm not too concerned about it. Obviously, would love to have Fernando back but that isn't going to happen.

Cowan has no chance of being drafted IMO and doesn’t have an NBA body/skill set. I think he’s declaring pro so he can get paid overseas. Do not expect him back. 

Bruno, although unlikely, may have a better chance of coming back after seeing that he’s no longer going to be a lottery pick. Still should go in the first round, so he’s likely gone.

    • I think this will be the first year in a long time that pitching will not be the main priority of the off-season. I think the focus will be on assembling better all around infielders. Lopez’  2020 4.61 FIP Is almost a full run better than his 5.23 ERA, and as an Oriole, it’s better at 4.84 and 3.80, which is third-best on the team behind only Kremer and Akin( who have 31.1 innings between them.) I don’t know how he does it. His BABIP is only .220,(even though he’s not being helped by the defense) but I expect he’ll be here next April.
    • o   (SEPTEMBER 17th)   Since that 5-13 plunge, the streaky Yankees have won 8 straight games ........ that's a 1.000 winning percentage.   https://www.espn.com/mlb/team/schedule/_/name/nyy   o
    • I think they both go off the 40 man roster but one of them signs a AAA contract with the O's as the 3rd catcher.
    • This will be Alberto's 2nd arbitration year.  He was awarded 1.65M last year and will probably get 3M this year.  JMG.
    • Sure, but I think Holaday will remain and Wynns will go.
    • o   I think that) Alex Cobb )will have a good game.   Tyler Glasnow )has split 2 games with the Orioles so far this season, ceding 3 Walks and 2 Runs over 4.67 Innings Pitched on August 1st, and Striking Out 13 batters over 7 Innings Pitched on August 25th.  For his career against the Orioles, )Glasnow )has handled them well ........ in 111 Plate Appearances over 5 Games, the Orioles are batting .187 with an OBP of .216, and OPS of .497. In 29.67 Innings Pitched, he has an ERA of 2.12 and a WHIP of 0.809.     BALTIMORE O RIOLES ))))) (vs. DEVIL RAYS, 9/18) Boyce Cedric "B.C." Mullins - CF Hanser Joel Alberto Pena - 2B  Demetrius Jerome "D.J."

    • I thought about putting Alberto here,  because his defense is lousy. But he’s not easily replaced, And infield is where we are weakest. Iglesias is good, no need to change. Alberto is Serviceable for now. He’s Arbitration-eligible for the first time this fall so he’ll get a raise, but not too much.
