Yeah, that's another one we should take a look at. How old is he?

Why not just use the guys in the O’s minors? These guys were dropped for a reason.

One of which could be that those teams they were on are more talented than ours. They could be better than what we have in the minors. Why not? So what if they stink?

There is that. 

Because he’s been injured for two years, basically. Very disappointing.

Oscar De la Cruz was my first thought too

Would be a bit like carrying another rule 5 pick but he'd be worth a look 

De La Cruz has two options remaining. 91-97 FB with a 55 Curve ball and 50 Change up. Became strictly a RP this season. Good K rate. 

I’m an easy sell on DFAd players especially free top 30 prospects and considering the dead weight that’s on the 40 man currently. 

People laugh at DFA players but look what’s on the 40 man now,

Tayler Scott

Chandler Shepperd

I’ll dive deeper.  Here are some other names,

Luis Gohara LH SP ATL Has options, currently recovering from shoulder surgery, turned 23 yesterday, made his debut in 2017 at age 20. Former top prospect. Pre-2018  BA has him as the #28 prospect. 

https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=gohara000lui

There have been moves made by teams to take advantage of teams with a 40 man crunch. We have not participated so far. The Yanks gave away Harvey a reliever. The Rays gave away McCarthy to the Giants. The Brewers dumped Marcus Diplan, who was a AA SP prospect. The Cubs have De La Cruz in DFA limbo now, who’d be around a top 30 prospect for us. 

Theoretically we have an upcoming 40 man roster crunch. But really... we’re not exactly over flowing with talent. We have some guys that we have to add, and we should. But at the end of the season we could DFA/Non tender, 

Davis, Villar, Castro, Peterson, Wynns, Shepherd, Tay Scott, Brooks, Eshelman with ease. 

Then we have guys who are/were “prospects” but haven’t really done anything,

Martin, Hess, Carroll, Phillips, Rogers.

The idea of us having a 40 man roster crunch is classic fanbase overvaluing players.  I’m not saying all of these guys should go, or that they have none of them could be a productive player for us.

I don't see how you pass on Gohara, he's exactly what this organization is looking for. Medicals are the big thing, but Just turned 23, Lefty. If he regains his stuff, he'd not just become a starter option, he'd become a front of the rotation piece.

I was hoping for Gohara in previous trade possibilities last year, so I agree that he'd be a worthy addition if we can acquire him. I also agree that any talent we can sign that is better than the talent we have, it should be done (pending potential off-the-field issues.)

Change of scenery matters.

As far as I can tell, we have gotten the following that are on the 40 man from either a waiver claim or trade following a DFA. 1/3 of the roster. No reason to ignore a way to get people into the system.

Shawn Armstrong

Richard Bleier

Miguel Castro

Paul Fry

Chandler Shepherd

Tayler Scott

Hanser Alberto

Renato Nunez

Jace Peterson

Jose Rondon

Rio Ruiz

Pedro Severino

Dwight Smith Jr.

Upton, 1:2 2002, 16.8 rWAR Desmond Jennings, 10:3 2006, 13.5 rWAR Jason Hammel, 10:2 2002, 12.8 rWAR Alex Cobb, 4:3 2006, 12.5 rWAR Jeremy Hellickson, 4:8 2005, 11.7 rWAR Blake Snell, 1s:52 2011, 11.4 rWAR Wade Davis, 3:3 2004, 11.1 rWAR John Jaso, 12:1 2003, 10.8 rWAR Rocco Baldelli, 1:6 2000, 10.2 rWAR Steven Vogt, 12:1 2007, 7.7 rWAR Jake McGee, 5:4 2004, 7.4 rWAR Brandon Lowe, 3:12 2015, 5.6 rWAR Derek Dietrich, 2:29 2010, 5.3 rWAR (FA comp) Matt Moore, 8:1 2007, 5.1 rWAR Jeff Niemann, 4:4 2004, 4.3 rWAR Jonny Gomes, 8:3 2001, 3.5 rWAR Tim Beckham, 1:1 2008, 3.5 rWAR Delmon Young, 1:1 2003, 3.2 rWAR Chad Gaudin, 34:3 2001, 2.4 rWAR Joey Gathright, 32:3 2001, 2.2 rWAR Elijah Dukes, 3:2 2002, 1.9 rWAR Merrill Kelly 8:16 2010, 1.8 rWAR Dylan Floro, 13:24 2012, 1.7 rWAR Jake Cronenworth, 7:13 2015, 1.4 rWAR Ryne Stanek 1:29 2013, 1.3 rWAR Adam Liberatore, 21:16 2010, 1.0 rWAR Joey Rickard, 9:24 2012, 1.0 rWAR   Total: 31 players, 325.3 rWAR 2000-09: 21 players, 267.5 rWAR 2010-20: 10 players, 57.8 rWAR   I'm a little surprised they haven't been stronger over the last decade.
    • Honestly a pretty sad list after #5 ....Really most think that Wieters underachieved , Britton was called a TOR  that ended up in the pen because of durability, and Arrieta was god awful while he was here. Really, this list describes the drafting and developing failures of the Baltimore Orioles in the 21st century!
    • Waiver claim was how he got here so its not like we're talking about greatness. Maybe this means Mountcastle is moving to 1B or DH. 
    • Now the Yankees: Brett Gardner, 3:29 2005, 42.8 rWAR Austin Jackson, 8:29 2005, 21.9 rWAR Aaron Judge, 1:32 2013, 20.1 rWAR Ian Kennedy, 1:21 2006, 16.7 rWAR (FA comp) David Robertson, 17:28 2006, 15.8 rWAR Tyler Clippard, 9:27 2003, 15.5 rWAR Mark Melancon, 9:28 2006, 11.8 rWAR Dellin Betances, 8:28 2006, 11.2 rWAR Phil Hughes, 1:23 2004, 11.0 rWAR (FA comp) Joba Chamberlain, 1:41 2006, 7.6 rWAR Adam Warren, 4:28 2008, 6.7 rWAR David Phelps, 14:28 2007, 6.1 rWAR George Kontos, 5:28 2006, 3.8 rWAR Shane Greene, 15:24 2009, 3.5 rWAR Jordan Montgomery, 4:17 2014, 3.5 rWAR Jeff Karstens, 19:27 2003, 3.2 rWAR Jake Cave, 6:28 2011, 2.9 rWAR Mike Dunn, 33:28 2004, 2.8 rWAR John Brebbia, 30:28 2011, 2.5 r WAR Caleb Smith, 14:29 2013, 2.5 rWAR Zach McAllister, 3:28 2006, 2.5 rWAR Tommy Kahnle, 5:30 2010, 2.0 rWAR Phil Coke, 26:24 2002, 2.0 rWAR Ben Gamel, 10:29 2010, 1.1 rWAR James Pazos, 13:29 2012, 1.0 rWAR   Total: 25 players, 199.5 rWAR 2000-09: 17 players, 163.9 rWAR 2010-20 8 players, 35.6 rWAR   Not much there,  but then again, they're always drafting low.
    • The discrepancy is even worse when you think about how our draft picks work, with I think two exceptions, far better than theirs. It’s hard to blame one person, because the problem is over so long, but boy somebody is to blame
    • Now here's the Red Sox:   Dustin Pedroia, 2:24 2004, 51.6 rWAR Mookie Betts, 5:21 2011, 45.2 rWAR Jon Lester, 2:16 2002, 44.6 rWAR Anthony Rizzo, 6:20 2007, 34.3 rWAR Kevin Youkilis, 8:17 2001, 32.4 rWAR Jacoby Ellsbury, 1:23 2005, 31.0 rWAR (FA comp) Josh Reddick, 17:7 2006, 24.7 rWAR Jonathan Papelbon, 4:17 2003, 23.3 rWAR Jackie Bradley Jr., 1:40 2011, 17.8 rWAR (FA comp) Jed Lowrie, 1:45 2005, 17.0 rWAR (FA comp) Clay Buchholz, 1:42 2005, 16.7 rWAR (FA comp) Freddy Sanchez, 11:22 2000, 15.9 rWAR Justin Masterson, 2:27 2006, 10.1 rWAR David Murphy, 1:17 2003, 9.9 rWAR Andrew Benintendi , 1:7 2015, 9.7 rWAR Travis Shaw, 9:21 2011, 9.4 rWAR Kelly Shoppach, 2:4 2001, 8.3 rWAR (FA comp) Alex Wilson, 2:28 2009, 5.1 rWAR Brandon Moss, 8:16 2002, 5.0 rWAR Daniel Bard, 1:28 2006, 5.0 rWAR (FA comp) Manny Delcarmen, 2:22 2000, 3.8 rWAR Christian Vazquez 9:30 2008, 3.6 rWAR Matt Murton; 1:32 2003, 3.3 rWAR (FA comp) Brandon Workman 2:7 2010, 3.1 rWAR   Cla Meredith, 6:24 2004, 2.9 rWAR Hunter Strickland, 18:20 2007, 3.8 rWAR Ryan Pressly, 11:20 2007, 7.0 rWAR Kristopher Negron 7:27 2006, 1.8 rWAR Kason Gabbard, 29:22 2000, 1.8 rWAR J.B. Wendelken, 13:23 2012, 1.4 rWAR Brian Johnson, 1s:31 2012, 1.3 rWAR Tanner Houck, 1:24 2017, 1.3 rWAR Noe Ramirez, 3:21 2011, 1.3 rWAR Mauricio Dubron 26:7 2013, 1.2 rWAR Travis Lakins, 6:6 2015, 1.2 rWAR Ty Buttrey, 4:23 2012, 1.1 rWAR Jeremy Hazelbacher, 27:4 2009, 1.1 rWAR   Total: 37 players, 458.8 rWAR 2000-09: 25 players, 364.8 rWAR 2009-20: 12 players, 94.0 rWAR   They crushed us in the 2000-09 period.    We have a slight edge on them in 2010-20 to date.     
    • Actually he's the perfect guy for the Japanese Leagues. He might hit 80 home runs in Korea!
