Addison Russel + some lower level pitching?

I really hope the Orioles don't trade for Russell. That would be a real bad look.

Tate also looked pretty good out of the bullpen. He gun had him at 97 on his 4 seamer and what looked like a two seamer at 93-94 and got a few ground balls on it. Off speed pitches were ineffective.

Nice to see his fastball playing up in relief.

I don’t think he has offspeed stuff to start I would keep him in the pen and see if he can’t be a Givens type pitcher as 7th 8th inning guy.

I think most on this site have written this guy off. The arm talent alone makes him a potential bullpen arm, IMO. I'm not optimistic, but he has a better chance to be a BP guy than most guys throwing in the upper 80's.

I looked, but couldn't find, Luke's post about who needs to be placed on the 40-man roster this year. I fear he may be one of them. If so, I'd say he's a low priority to protect at this point.

[Going back and reading this thread, it wasn't clear this post was about Tate. It is. Not about Kremer, who is still a guy to be very high on.]

We already had to put him on the 40-man last offseason.    So far they’ve found other guys to DFA when they’ve needed a space.   We’ll see if that continues to be the case.

5 shutout innings, 2 hits, 2 walks, 8 K’s.   71 pitches, 45 for strikes.   He seems to have his act together.

His 5th inning was particularly impressive. He had the first batter struck out twice on grazing foul tips, but both popped out of Perez's glove. He ended up walking the batter and was visibly angry. He proceeded to absolutely carve up the next three batters to strike out the side.

I wonder why only 5 inning and 71 pitches you would think he could have came out for 6th.

Think if you read Luke’s description above you’d understand.   Sort of like when you take bp before a game, put two out and smoke 1/2 a dozen line drives, no reason to get back in the cage again.  End on a good note and come back later so you leave a good taste in your mouth.

My thinking was they wanted to get Baumann some work. They have too many starters at Bowie. I expect them to move Lowther and Kremer up to make room for Baumann and maybe Sedlock in the next week or so.

Kremer, Wells, and Grayson are all strike throwers.  You have to hope guys like Bauman, Hall, Akin, improve in that area.  Not talking ceilings but it seems the former three are best bets to remain starters at the ML level.  Lowther is kind of a tweener to both groups for me.

Solid if unspectacular outing for Kremer today: 5 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K’s.   Probably could have gotten another inning out of him but I think they wanted Baumann going 4.   1.96 ERA in his last 4 starts for Kremer.

Lowther would be the guy, but even still, I’ve turned into a big believer of the one level at a time, but it might be time. Polished college pitcher.  Has dominated every level.  He’s 23, so he’s not some kid.

We’re in no rush. I’d definitely pump the brakes on Kremer. He’s just now getting back to being who he was a year ago. Maybe you give him a taste of Norfolk in August. Baumann needs AA starts, but I’d be fine letting Sedlock gain some confidence or pitch out the pen in AA to finish out. I’m sure he’s on an IP limit.

Looks like he may not have had his best stuff last night but was able minimize damage. Signs of a guy who could stick as a starter. I’m still most excited about him from our “haul” last year. I think we see him get a few starts in September if we end up trading Cashner.

Out of the upper level SP prospects, I'd think Akin, Lowther and Wells all get starts in Baltimore before Kremer does.  Possibly Zimmermann too.

    • In his morning article Roch is speculating 5/40 with 7 million to his KBO team.    Zero chance this O’s participate. But, I think it would be a bold move for the Orioles. If you subtract the 3.5 that they would’ve paid Iglesias if they kept him the net is really only 4 million per season including the posting. They are likely gonna bring in another experienced short stop and likely pay him 2-3 million.    Spend the saved 3.5 million and divert the 2-3 from the scrap heap guy that they are going to sign. If he hits you can deal him later for a pile and if not he’s a marginal risk at best coming out of your tv money. They have saved the amount to cover his contract over the last few seasons to cover its entirety
    • MLB Pipeline did a Top 10 on their podcast this week, including shreds on I guess NCAA sophomores who like Kjerstad in February/March may have done stuff for a few weeks.  It also acquainted me with the demographics of the basket where 1-5 will be one of them. Pirates 1 - Lawlar the HS shortstop Rangers 2 - Kumar Tigers 3 - McClain, some Madrigal-sized middle infielder from UCLA, maybe/maybe not SS Red Sox 4 - del Castillo, some slugging catcher from "The U" deemed best hitter in draft Orioles 5 - Leiter (I'd be glad with this outcome for polish going towards 2022 usefulness) D'Backs 6 - Jake Hill, the LSU right-hander, non-Vanderbilt best of SEC rest.   Guessing Ben may know him some. Royals 7 - Jud Zabian, Florida OF    <mock now at 6 straight NCAA after the high school SS character who seems impossible to get to 1-5> <hosts say these Top 7 are a clear tier in whatever order they fall> Rockies 8 - Alex Vanellas, Louisville 3B Angels 9 - Marcelo Mayer, high school SS #2 Mets 10 - James Wood, IMG Academy high school OF <nary a high school pitcher in these 10, though with draft pushed back to July, the Nick Bitsko analogs born in 2003 will have some extra time to strut their stuff, in case the next Kerry Wood, Josh Beckett or Dylan Bundy can only Netflix and chill right now>    
    • I would dangle him to anyone whi would take him. I didn't want him back at any cost let alone 1.8M
    • He is so streaky that when he is in his funk he will be worse than the MIF we run out there.
    • https://halohangout.com/2020/07/13/angels-garrett-stallings-summer-camp/ An Angels fansite report when he later got to their 60 this summer cites a curve as the Junior year difference maker. Their source for that this campus story https://247sports.com/college/tennessee/Article/Tennessee-Vols-Baseball-Vols-Garrett-Stallings-selected-in-fifth-round-of-MLB-Draft-132589216/ also has the details he was their 2019 Friday night guy even with Crochet on the team. His Perfect Game blurb from high school times mentioned three-quarters to over the top arm angle, gee whiz. Who knows if he could have had Kevin Smith's 2019 in parallel universe 2020?   SEC trade imports links them, but Smith actually doing it including a little AA success is a big credit in his favor for the moment.
