I'm no expert but I would think May or June-ish 2021, whenever the extra year of control kicks in. And of course IF he tears up the minors. And if/when he's a fully ready catcher/Field General. Not your average position player.

Why would the Orioles want to start his clock in a year where they have no way of being competitive? At earliest you're probably looking like 3 or 4 weeks into the 2021 season like the Cubs did with Kris Bryant so they gain the extra year of control. Then again I believe 2021 is when the new player/owner negotiations take place so who knows what new rules will be in pace or if there will be any games to play.

I think it would be cool for the O's to come out and say that they want Rutschman to get a full year at, say, AA, and just leave him there for 140 games.  It could be like the old days when MLB teams respected their affiliates (or were forced to by agreements) and were really careful about calling up a guy in mid-season and disrupting the minor league team.  Someone like Rutschman could hit .320 with 42 homers and 125 RBI, nobody does that in the minors any more.  Say it's for development and working with the pitchers.  With side benefit of not starting his clock.

Much closer to reality in my opinion.  Don't be surprised if it's not till 2022.  I know that may sound crazy now, but Elias ostensibly wants a track record of success at each level but I suspect he is more interested in team control especially given the current state of the franchise and timeline associated with a return to winning.

He's ready for BP with bare feet!  First metal bat and then switch to ash!  #MaxBat

Would be in defience of recent history and would be in all probability a diservice to the player.

Would you stop stirring the pot?  😇  I mean two spelling errors!

    • Bleier trade continues to bite the O's last night.  Fry  could not find the plate especially against right-handed batters. Needing to face three batter in not Fry's game.    It didn't affect the outcome because the O's didin't  hit.  However, Fry does not look up to being the 2nd lefties in the pen  which shows how much the O's miss Bleier.  Fry would be a candidate to be sent down but there is no lefty to replace him so he will probably stay in the majors.
    • SummerSlam ‘92 is on FS1.  Quarantine + Nostalgia = Mullet for backwardsk ?
    • I missed another game. My sleep schedule sleep patterns are SOOOOOOOO screwed up... I laid down for a quick nap before the game about 4:30. When I woke up at MIDNIGHT I had missed the entire thing. Turned on the TV to watch the 11:30 replay and THANK GOD the Gnats are back playing! They're the replay tonight... fml     So.... I'm not going to read the thread or the board. Or Roch. It's 1:30 am. I'm having my "morning" glass of coffee (yes BIG TALL GLASS) and I'm going to watch the 9 am MASN replay "live". So I have THAT going for me. 🙃 GO O'S!!!!
    • And now for something completely different...   NSFW https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpx_VXRG_qc  
    • Now that does make sense: greater risk, greater reward. So do healthy pitchers make more than healthy batters? Serious question.
    • On his pro-rated salary, Cobb would earn @ $4.5MM the rest of this season. That would be nothing for a contending team to take on if they were sold on him putting them over the top. But I can't imagine being so desperate on August 4, 10 games into a 60 game season if I were a decision maker to take on the entirety of his contract.  If a team really wants to gamble a little bit of cash on Cobb to win this year's WS, they may be wrangled into taking half the burden on the 2021 salary, while the Orioles pay half of this season's $4.5MM remaining. This is starting to sound too good to be true!
    • The Cardinals never have a low pick, and yet they have a wonderful farm and consistent success
