Safe to assume we're done? 

It appears there are a couple dollars left.

In most cases, a player selected by a club in the Rule 4 Draft will remain on the club's Negotiation List until either the player signs or until the signing deadline (whichever comes first), and if a club does not sign a Rule 4 Draft pick by the deadline (

5 PM Eastern on the Friday that falls during the week July 6-12), the player is removed from the club's Negotiation List and becomes eligible for selection again in the next Rule 4 Draft in which the player would be eligible for selection.

Looks like they need to do it by Friday at 5pm (if this page is correct, although they seem pretty through...).  Certainly been quiet for a while.

Fair to say that Arnold, Fagnant and Amarzlak are definitely not signing and Miknis, Thomas and Pedersen are probably not signing? Is that the order?

From not likely to not happening;

1. Miknis

2. Thomas

3. Pedersen

4. Arnold

5. Fagnant

6. Zmarzlak 

As the trade deadline talks heat, and the likelihood that we may even have to eat some money for a top 30-40 prospect, it makes me think if paying the tax would be a little justified on one of those guys. It would be spending less money on a HS kid we “like” versus on a “prospect” from another org. that would be flawed or the other team wouldn’t be trading him. 

Just some logic I was thinking about with the trade talks. I know the “tax penalty” gets expensive after the 290k we can offer.

This year, the deadline is

July 12 at 5 p.m. ET. Most draftees will sign well before that deadline, but by the evening of July 12 every team and every college will know which players are going to school and which players are going pro.

Ok, I dug deeper to be sure.  We have about 30 hours and we'll know if we're done for sure.

Any unsigned players out there that could be in play for 1:1 next year?

No.  There was a high school pitcher that didnt sign in the 7th round and a JC in the 10th.  Those are the only ones that didnt sign in the first 9 rounds.  The top players in next years draft will be their first year eligible to sign.  Unless someone comes out relatively no where.

General comment on the draftees thus far (and recent intl signees too for that matter), but I really like the patience being exhibited by the positional players at the plate.  Seem to be taking a lot more walks than what I’m accustomed to seeing in years past.

And on the flip side most of the pitchers appear to being doing well and succeeding at not issuing at ton of BBs. 

You have to like the early results minus a few slow starts from some guys, young Gunnar being one of those.

Elias drafted 5 Division II players and 2 Division III.  They aren't doing half bad. Maybe he has found a creative way to add talent to the system through a new pipeline.

Toby Welk (D3) - Hitting well over .300 with some pop. Could be in Delmarva soon.

Mason Janvrin (D2) - Batting .300 with 10 SBs in GCL

Shayne Fontana (D2) - Destroyed GCL, is holding own at Aberdeen.  .854 OPS between two teams.

Nick Roth (D3) - 0.00 ERA and 3 Saves in the GCL

Dillon McCollough (D2) - 8.6 BB/9 11.9 K/9 in GCL

Craig Lewis (D2) - Hit .417 at GCL, is hitting near .300 at Aberdeen

Trevor Kehe (D2) - Only played in 7 games, struggling .508 OPS. 4 Stolen Bases

I have often said that there is a lot of hidden talent in DII, DIII and JuCo. I am glad to see that Elias has the means to find it.

Nearly a walk per inning?  He most be throwing a lot of pitches per inning for these results.

    • I guess it depends on the mindset.  If the big contract was the important thing to you I can see why you wouldn't want to risk losing money by testing positive.
    • Obviously, it's money related but it's also roster related. They believe, and I believe, that they won't lose anything with the extra AB's Stewart and Mullins are likely to get with this move.  Good point by SG for keeping Nunez for depth for now but the better point by Frobby.  At 26 years old Elias apparently feels Nunez is what he is.  A 750-820 OPS go with no defensive value and extremely streaky.  Is it worth 2M to make sure that's all he is?  
    • Beats me.  But I don't believe anyone who's had a bit of success at the ML level while juicing stops taking them, especially after they've bagged a big contract.  
    • I will say it seems strange that Nunez doesn't have some trade value vs a DFA. His avg exit velocity really fell off last year but his WOBA  has increased every year he's been with the Orioles to his career best .341 (MLB avg of .317) though his xWOBA fell to .301 (.321 MLB average) suggesting he was a little lucky last year. His defensive really fell off to the point that he's a DH, which of course puts a lot of pressure on his bat. With Mancini returning, and Stewart needing everyday at bats and an outfield that is getting crowded in a good way (Mountcastle, Stewart, Hays, Santander and Mullins and Diaz at some point perhaps), he's in a bit of a roster crunch.  I'd like to think a guy who was on pace to hit 30+ home runs at 26 years old with a good solid barrel percentage (80 MLB percentile) would have more value, but with offensive numbers continuing to rise, I guess is you bring no defensive value your bat needs to be special, and Nunez is a streaky hitter who can be special at times, but eventually ends up slightly better than average offensively.  Do I think money is involved in this decision? Yeah, I think it would be naïve to say that his arbitration number wasn't a factor. Was it the only factor, no because as I pointed out, there's going to be a crunch for PAs next year between 1B, DH and corner outfield.  As for Davis, it's quite clear that with COVID still lingering, the question on whether a full season will happen next year looms big on whether to finally cut bait on him. It's clear that Davis has no intention of doing the right thing and retiring, so he will continue to embarrass himself and any remaining legacy so he can cash some big checks in the future that he hasn't earned. It's certainly his right to do so. Also, with the CBA coming up, maybe the Orioles think they will save money from his albatross contract if the players strike? It's clear he's only still on the roster because the Orioles are exploring all ways to try and get out of paying him. Nunez was a decent stick, but his defensive woes really cut onto his value and at the end of the day, it seems Elias has decided he rather give those DH at bats to others.  
    • I have a theory. No better than your average CoC theory.  I believe pretty strongly that he did them.  Why stop?  Well, once he bagged his big contract, he may have felt the health risks and the low risk of getting caught were not worth it.  Perhaps he had a health scare or just being married and having a young family made him reevaluate the health risks. I know that he lost a lot of body mass over the last 5 years.  He says he was slow to change his swing because he had prior success.   Then why lose muscle and mass purposely if that's the way you were when you had all your success? No idea on Brady.  He still hit like 24 homers after the 50 homer season.  He may have used but that seadon was an aberration either way.  Like Davey Johnson in 73.  If you believe Brady used, I don't think the seasons after the 50 homer season necessarily mean that he stopped.
