Astros Designate AJ Reed

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.   

We are full to overflowing with 1B/DH types. We’re still waiting for Trumbo to come back clutter things up even more( even if the expectation is that he won’t, the plan is that he will)

 Nah. Pass.

These are the type of guys we should claim with our top waiver priority. Let’s face it we’re going to have this position for a long time. At least until OD next season.  Especially when a player has an option. 

I’d recall Carroll and 60 day DL him. Not worry about the money or the service time issues. 

Let Reed play 1B everyday in AAA Mountcastle playing LF.

I'm tired of the 1B/DH types, but why not.  

Just wait until you guys are bashing Mountcastle for the same reasons you bash Mancini and Davis.

You can be tired of them, but that is baseball.  Reed can flat outhit, he just needs a change of scenery.

 

The top guys the Orioles are dying to GET RID OF are 1b DH types , and I would rather play Reed at this point than any of them, honestly.

If "Mountcastle" and "Davis" are ever comparable enough to even end up in the same sentence God help us all.

(Unless that sentence is "Mountcastle has replaced Davis on the roster.")

I see no reason not to take a flier on him. He's struggled this year and has no defensive value, but he's left-handed and has power potential.

I'd play him at 1B everyday in Norfolk and see what they have. Worse case scenario you just DFA him if you need 40-man spot this winter, but I see a lot of guys you can take off the 40-man this offseason and not blink.

What do you think it means that they have begun playing Mountcastle in left field?   Does it mean he was not doing very well at 1B defensively?

All depends on Elias and Sig.....They certainly know him well enough.

 

They are either salivating and have been waiting to pounce on him for a while now, or they pass.  We shall see.

What happens to Mountcastle if Reed is playing 1B at Norfolk everyday?  Looking at his age (26) and career AAA stats im not impressed.

I think he is a DH and that is where he should play.  If he improves the offense talent  in the system then claim him.  However, I am not sure claiming him gets him.   I am sure the Astros would rather trade him.

I'll rephrase, I'm tired of the main one that's being paid to a truckload of money to hit .172 and the roster clog that's caused because of him.

Yeaaaaaaaaah that was never a good idea.

I almost wonder if there's something going on with this guy.

    • Hard to put much stock into what guys like Al Davis says. There is a host of reasons for the team to say in Baltimore. Just because there is a wild arse rumor floating that the team is looking into moving, doesnt make it true, or a probability, either.
    • I want to believe this is true, but I can't get over the fact that Jaime Moyers come along very infrequently, and most often as guys who used to throw harder but have transitioned to pitchability types at the end of their careers. He's not very high on my personal list even though he's clearly an exceptional MiL pitcher. Hopefully I'm wrong.
    • I was worried about the injuries.  Wasn't a risk I was willing to take that high.
    • I was thinking about this the other day. There were quite a few people here that felt like he was the better pick at the time. I really didn't post much then, or now either, but I really liked him as a player.    Bundy was a good selection at the time. He's had a decent career in the grand scheme of things, just not on the level of Rendon.
    • He sounds very much like Ryan Mountcastle, at a high level at least. Profiles as a bat first guy who won't stick at short. With that said, hopefully he doesn't have an obviously deficient arm like Mountcastle. If he turns into a 3B eventually, which is what it sounds like to me, that bat could be a real plus. A ton of development between now and then though. I'd expect them to take it slow with him.
    • Kinga Glyk is the name of the bassist.
    • Am curious your opinion... Mine was generally that hard contact is the hardest skill to teach, and that transferring from contact to power was easier than the opposite. When you have a straight power approach and you're on, it's glorious. However, when you're not in a groove, it gets really ugly. I don't recommend that approach for pretty much anyone. Even supremely talented hitters like Giancarlo Stanton can lose value quickly when they lose the line drive approach to their game. Alternatively, when you're making hard line drive contact regularly, it's easier to let yourself go and crush some balls, IMO. It's when you do too much of that approach that your swing starts to develop real holes. Well, this is all my personal experience, at least.
