Chris Lee was released the other day, so I don't think we have to worry about him.

Dietz can't find the strike zone to save his life in Frederick.

Yeah, I only added Dietz because he has been on the OH top 30 the last couple years. He is clearly not a candidate to be added or selected.

I missed Lee being released, I really only added him because he was actually on the 40-man roster a while back and he at last managed to strike people out this year, if nothing else.

Depends on how much room we have but Kremer, Akin, Wells, Mountcastle, and Diaz are the only no brainers for me.   Not too afraid of losing any of the others but I think the odds of getting picked and lasting a whole year in the majors are not real good.

I think McKenna would get picked and could last a whole year in the Majors. It is harder for an outfielder to last, but Carlos Tocci and Victor Reyes both lasted full seasons in 2018 as Rule 5 players. They were similar level prospects, but McKenna has more power than both Tocci and Reyes and both Tocci and Reyes lasted all season despite recording sub 50 OPS+ in the Majors. As long as he is a legitimate centerfielder defensively, I think he could stick as a fourth outfielder.

I think it may come down how he looks the last 6+ weeks of the season and I imagine he will get another season in the AFL

Yeah, let's see what McKenna does the last 6 weeks.  As of now, I believe Luke thinks 4th of is his most likely outcome.  If someone wants to pick him and stash him for a year, more power to them.  What kind of numbers did those other guys put up the year they were selected?

We currently have Broxton, Smith Jr and Wilkerson on the 40 man right now. Of course you protect McKenna (and Diaz) over any of them.

Is Broxton on contract beyond this season?

Chances of losing McKenna are slim and none.  Broxton isn't here next year.  50/50 that Smith and Wilkerson are. Difference is that they are already on the 40 man.  Every year I go through this.  Everyone wants to protect too many guys.  Everyone is afraid of losing someone who is 22 and hitting .235 in AA and striking out 1/4 of the time.  And some team is going to pick him, why?

If Broxton isn't here next year, and Smith and Wilkerson are 50/50, who do you think will fill those spots on the 40 man?

You think they prefer to find another Smith Jr over protecting McKenna?

Too early to tell.  If there's plenty of room then a guy like McKenna probably gets protected.  Guys like him, Peralta, and Sedlock are fringy.  I could see a team selecting Peralta but he'd still be a lonshot to stick

Nobody is taking Peralta. Right now, it looks like Alvarado would be much more likely to be picked than Peralta.

Peralta is starting verses Alvarado relieving.  Alvarado is 93-96 as a reliever.  Peralta is pretty much that as a starter and probably a tick better.  A team thinking slightly outside the box could take a look at Peralta as a one inning reliever.  Good chance he sits 96-98 as a reliever.  Doesn't mean he'll be good but teams take fliers on that.

Peralta’s secondary stuff is better too. Alvarado has the profile of a guy who’d have to be left handed or dominating AAA to get selected and it still wouldn’t be likely. If the ceiling is 35/40, they better be MLB ready to warrant Rule 5 consideration.

    • Wow, you are a longtime member of this site, aren’t you?    I’d completely forgotten about Mr. Hoffman.   Wasn’t he a retired law enforcement officer or something?   I’ve forgotten his first name, so maybe @Tony-OH, @weamsor @PaulFolkcan refresh our memories.     He loved to report on the guys who weren’t really prospects but baseball rats.    Good times!
    • Last night I watched a little bit of the Chandler start from the final game of 2019 to refresh myself on what exactly he's working with. Pretty nice 93-94 mph fastball that he'll move all over the place. Didn't have the best command of it, but it didn't look as hittable as I expected. Some decent offspeed stuff, too, but was kind of missing with it. If he locks in a little bit, he looks like he could be another Asher type guy. 
    • Really a box of chocolates of middle infielders. 
    • For what it’s worth, here’s a 6-1/2 minute highlight reel of Melanie Newman doing various play-by-play and sideline assignments (first minute or so is all male voices talking about her, but it eventually turns to her work).     My assessment: voice is pleasant enough, delivery seems very professional, and seems to know her stuff.   I hope she does get to do some PBP this year so I can form a more detailed opinion.    https://www.melanielynnen.com
    • Herrera has been worth exactly 0.0 in parts of three seasons with the Mets and Reds, good for a .687 OPS, not hitting particularly well against righties or lefties.  Small sample size, of course.   I agree that part of 2B is up for grabs, unless Hanser proves that he can hit righties...if he gets that chance.  I think Herrera could be a dark horse utility infielder type (assuming his fielding is good).  But someone who had some pop in AAA at age 25 probably shouldn't be looked at as answer...although we are only talking about a dark horse here. I'd say that there's a good chance we see him in Baltimore a little bit this year.  
    • I come to bury Hunter, not praise him.  He was always awful.  A well-informed baseball fan is not interested in hearing from a guy who sounds like a Top-40 DJ or a car salesman trying put me in a car.  HIs praise of utility infielders alone was vomit-inducing.  One of Angelos's original sins was driving away Jon Miller - a radio superstar - and replacing him with..........Hunter.    The minor league correspondent of this website - i believe it was Mr. Hoffman? - during the period around 1998-1999 -used to drive between Bowie, Frederick, maybe Delmarva and Aberdeen during those summer baseball seasons.  He described his pain at having to listen to the fool Hunter instead of  Miller.  I know how he felt.  You never got the feeling from Miller that your intelligence was being insulted the way Hunter operated.   Good riddance.
    • Not a transaction, but news I saw across my feed today. https://sports.yahoo.com/ravens-te-hayden-hurst-attempted-suicide-south-carolina-234738421.html   ^^^ four years ago.
