Almost as if they are not highly valued.

I will say that I don't see any reason for the O's to pick him up.

First person to say DFA Davis in this thread.

Would be a good pickup - shades of Texas giving up on Chris Davis. 

Are you being ironic? I truly cannot tell.

I don't think AJ Reed is the tipping point.

If he is, I'll refer to him as the Tipping Point, instead of his name, for as long as he's here.

Do you think Nunez has any trade value?   

They could pick up Reed, he still has an option for the rest of the season.   Send him to Norfolk and try to trade  Nunez.    They could recall Carroll and put him of the 60 day IL to open as 40 man roster spot.

Reed was Elias draft choice.

Just don’t pay him $20M a year if he makes it big like Davis did.

Not ironic. 

Davis was a Top 50 prospect and a .317/.374/.594 hitter in the minors who hadn't hit well in the majors (94 OPS+)

Reed was a Top 50 prospect at one point too I read, and a .280/.377/.538 hitter in the majors who has hit nothing in 150 PAs with Houston. Guy has an option too, if I'm reading this right.

I think PCL stats are grossly misleading...   ball just travels differently.    There have been tons of guys who mashed PCL and never amounted to anything in the majors...

Yes, please.  We don’t need to have him on our 25, just our 40, right?
