Roch says in his article today that he hasn't seen Dwight Smith Jr or Anthony Santander on the field yet. DJ Stewart certainly will get many at bats if either or both are out. They are saying that to get the extra year of service time players like Mountcastle will only have to be down for a week. It seems he will get a chance sooner than later.
Also Roch added in another article that Alex Cobb and Mychael Givens have not been spotted as well.
I couldn't remember a single name either and I am sure you have already looked it up, but for anyone else who was wondering:
Right-hander Dylan Bundy, one of the longest-tenured Orioles, was dealt Wednesday to the Los Angeles Angels for four pitching prospects — right-handers Isaac Mattson, Kyle Bradish, Zach Peek and Kyle Brnovich.
Bundy was my favorite pitcher to watch the last couple of years (when he wasn't being tee'd off and pitching reasonably well) and he was having a fantastic spring (yea I know...SSS), so I will be rooting for him this year. And hopefully catch a start if it all possible.
From this article about the two Nationals players testing positive, not all test results have come back.
Oh, I don't know high dollar guys with multiple years of earnings, will invested...enough for multiple lifetimes decide not to play...could it be that this is a cut and paste season, 60 games, made up divisions, basically ST exhibitions...3 to 4 months quarantined with teammates (as I understand it), away from family, none of the going out with teammates to bars and eateries, none of the camaraderie with teams in the clubhouse, dugouts, bullpens....no fans, a pretty crappy working environment IMO...for us this is a game, when you are at that stage of your career it is a business..the joy of the game maybe teammate interaction and not as much the game.
