Not good. 

Sounds like a hamstring injury.  Minimum of two weeks but could be a 4-6 week injury.  Looking like it could be another lost season for him.  Ugh.

I'm done with him.  Sorry.  Can't stay healthy.  What was it last year?  And then again to start this season?  And then this?

He missed a few weeks with an injury during his first season in Aberdeen as well.  

He's had about five separate injuries over his three years in the organization at this point that has caused him to miss chunks of time.  To be fair, he was healthy all of 2017.  

I'm not done.  He could still end up in Baltimore THIS season. But it's becoming a concern.

I dunno man, 5 injuries over 3 years is a lot.  Some guys are just more durable than others and being Orioles fans we should know this better than anyone.   On one end of the spectrum you've got a guy like Ripken, on the other end you've got the Reimold/Loewen crowd.

You can't watch Hays run the bases or dive for a ball in the outfield without wondering if he just pulled or tweaked something.  Reimold, IIRC, was the exact same way.  Dude was a walking DL trip before he got to Baltimore, did nothing to change that once he got here.

Thanks for the diagnosis, doctor.

Running out a grounder.  Coming up limp and grabbing the back of his leg.  It doesn't take a genius to speculate on what the injury is.  

Hopefully he just tweaked it in a little, but typically these are multi-week injuries.

Or he just tweaked something. Get out of here with this minimum of two weeks stuff.

Okay.  I'll eat my words if he's back in the lineup this week. 

I can think of many times I've seen a player exit the game with a hamstring injury.  I can't think of any instances where they were back in the lineup the following day.

“Typically?”    Sometimes they are, sometimes they’re not.

    • He put up .5 WAR overall. Over a full season, maybe he is a 1 WAR player. I would guess most of his value came vs LHP. Ideally we would have a lefty hitting, RHP-mashing infielder to pair him with at 2B or 3B, and the two could combine for 2-3 WAR without costing much. I wouldn't lose much sleep if we nontendered but also wouldn't mind keeping another year in the absence of an alternative.  Gunnar, Vavra, and Servideo are all lefties but who knows when they will be ready. 
    • I think its interesting to fill out a 26 man roster with Davis on it and see how Nunez effects the at bats of other  young players.   Does it hold back Diaz from being called up in May because they are not at bats for him?  Nunez has no options so if he is on the team he has to be on the 26 man roster. I did it and had a problem finding at bats for Nunez.  I would be interested if you see the same situation.
    • To be clear - this is an "opportunity" that you believe will exist regarding Marcus Stroman and, in advance of this pending situation which exists in your head, you are bashing our ownership group in advance for their non-participation - fully aware of a massive uncertainty in our budget and how major league baseball will be played in 2021. Under what circumstances in the Marcus Stroman sweepstakes will you consider this fiction in your head to not have been an opportunity?  How many teams would have to be involved in pursuing Stroman?  What sort of contract length and duration would Stroman have to sign before you admit Stroman's signing will not represent any "opportunity"?   I expect Stroman to be on lists of top 10 2021 free agents and have now already found him on one - as the second most valuable or most sought after starting pitcher after Trevor Bauer.   I don't have an issue with investing into a future team with a good signing a year or two in advance or actually competing.  Given our financial situation, I don't think this off-season will be one where we attempt such a signing and I seriously doubt the Os will compete will much more currently competitive and well-financed for Marcus Stroman.
    • I don’t think the salary matters to be honest.  By that I mean, most teams will have 3 million to pay for his bat...if they need it.  I also don’t know that you can assume he gets 3M (or more). The question is, who needs a DH?  If the NL has the DH next year, it will be helpful but I don’t see that happening.     The need for his skill set is the bigger hindrance in trading him vs the salary imo. If we cut him, I could see Tampa or Oakland scooping him right up (if they have a need at that position)
    • I sort of feel like Bowie might get a bigger piece of the pie chart of the remaining development of all the guys who were there this summer as 2020 got them oriented to the motels, restaurants, grocery stores, etc.   AA was already the proving ground for blue chips anyway. This is my code for saying I have nary an objection should Adley/Grayson never see Frederick unless they're maybe pouring beers at a caravan stop.
    • Do you think Nunez has any trade value at a 3m salary?
    • Realistically, could we eat 1/2 of Cobb’s salary and trade him?  I’m not so sure on that one.    He’s not good enough to crack a “contenders” rotation, and he’s too expensive for a fringe contender to buy in the offseason.    I think we’ll some interesting trades involving any of the players in arbitration(Nunez, Alberto, Severino), or our “established” relievers that have some value(Fry, Armstrong) Just to clear 40 man roster space.  Given our SP situation, it’s looking like 2023 is the earliest that we could contend. Especially if we go back to the old playoff format.
