I’m curious about the new guy’s upside? He hasn’t any options, so he clogs the roster. What good things does he have?

We didn’t pick him up on a whim, (hopefully that reason walked out the door with last fall’s departures.) So what are his advantages?

He's someone else.

He's shown a tendency to not walk many hitters. Career 2.7 BB9. My guess is he'll be in the rotation. . 

I think the Orioles are looking for Bundy/Cashner replacements right now.

Arietta needs surgery, and is likely done for the year, which makes Philly a candidate for either guy 

This meant for the trade deadline thread? I would agree... cashner’s market just got a lot hotter.

 Yeah, I should’ve put it in a different comment area. I am extremely gratified by what Mike is doing now. He is anticipating movies and preparing for those moves.

What’s his spin rate?  Can we sprinkle analytics on him and make him strictly FB/CB?  

IMO, we just really need to cover innings. Elias is trying. He basically went out and got two of the “best” pitchers in the international league. Brooks has had success in the PCL.

I mean I like Elias and all, but picking up guys from the waiver wire isn’t exactly high level chess. He’s been doing this all season and will continue to do it if there’s a chance of upgrading the pitching staff regardless of pending trades.

Brooks is starting game 1 today. He’s out options. It’s a double header and then pen was taxed last night, Brooks might be DFAd before game 2. 

While that would be hilarious, I’d also like to see this team stumble onto at least one SP with all the guys we’ve ran out there. Chris Waters?

Despite a poor major league record, he's been traded for pretty good players for some reason. Must have had potential!

Decent K/BB numbers. Just gives up a lot of HR, every year.

75% of the outs that Brooks recorded [6 out of 8] came via the Groundout and the Strikeout.

The one base-runner that he ceded via a Hit Batsman was erased on a double play, hence he faced the minimum number of batters (8) on the day.

Brooks could make Bundy's start on Wednesday against the Nationals.

    • Just talking about the general trend that analytic teams realize that arms are more risky, so they're ranking gets slightly dinged to compensate for that. He also didn't pick a pitcher until the 8th round last year. Things like on base skills are harder to mold using modern training, places like driveline are much more effective for pitchers.
    • I guess so.  If they want to have Mize paired with Lacy/Hancock, it's hard to argue with.  Tork does seem to be the consensus #1 pick though.  I am curious when the last time there was a player previously thought to be the consensus #1 pick who didn't go first overall.   
    • Saw a mock draft with us taking Martin and left drafting pitcher Nick Swiney at 30 https://prospects365.com/2020/05/25/ray-butlers-2020-mlb-mock-draft/
    • The Frobster beat me to posting the Melewski interview by 13 minutes.   The article mentions the Os in on quality international prospects that we knew about including Samuel Basallo and Maikol Hernandez and one that I am not sure I have seen mentioned with the Os here - Wilmer Feliciano who will get a signing bonus just under $500k and has big left-handed power.  A reminder that none of these guys are signed, just apparently committed or agreed to the Os until they are signed. It seems like a very strong group of elite prospects given how late our current FO was to the game of signing this upcoming J2 class.   The payoff from these guys is likely years away, but I think there is a chance last year's class and this year's class should start impacting our top 30 prospects entering 2021.  How optimistic is it to think predict our next international signing to reach our top 10 would be by 2022?  
    • Don’t have a subscription, but here’s an interview the author, Ben Badler, gave to Steve Melewski.   https://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2020/06/baseball-americas-ben-badler-on-os-international-effort-video.html At the end of the video, Badler speculates that the next CBA will create an international draft.   He thinks the players will posture about and then “maybe they’ll trade it for a few extra inches of legroom on the bus.”    LOL!    
    • Bad quality vid but its the only one that I found that shows Frohwirth's side of it. Back in that era Martinez grabs some pine 9 out of 10 times with that pitch.
