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.

 

Well done.

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.

There’s talk he won’t pitch ever again. 

And word on the street is that he also has some mental make up issues... like “dude, you need therapy very badly” issues.

EDIT: it would appear he’s had another surgery very recently, like within the last two weeks.

The Braves i think are trying to pass him through right now in order to take him off the 40 man and don't think a team will take a chance on him.  They could have put him on the 60 day dl and not have needed the space but then in off season they would have to re add him and they are already going to be in a roster crunch in the off season.  Do it now and hope no one wants to gamble and pay him to be on the 60 man for the rest of the season and pass him through to get him off the 40 man roster.  Little bit of roster manipulation that Dan would love.

I'd add De La Cruz and drop Shephard in a heart beat.  I think he is similar to Tate didn't work as starter but could be nice bullpen guy coming in throwing mid to upper 90s.  He has more upside then quite a few guys on the 40 man right now.

Yeah. Sometimes they are just done.

Wow... I hadn't read up on him since last deadline. Thanks for the update.

His days of hitting the upper 90s are gone. Too fragile, too many injuries and he's sit more lower to mid 90s these days. I very much doubt his arm could handle going back to back days.

I completely agree about change of scenery, but I also agree that guys who are dropped are dropped for a reason And that reason remains valid. One would hope that we can pull an Armstrong on everybody we bring in, But we will have to see.

Billy Hamilton?

Honestly, it's a pass from me. We already have a hard enough time finding spots for all these outfielders, 90% of whom are actually infielders. I don't see us adding a speedy defense guy who can't hit. 

But... he's an interesting guy that is out there.

    • If you only listen to one of these two, listen to the one above. This is pretty decent tho.  
    • How does anyone get a psychological boost from being left in long enough to get hit around?  He was up 6-0, in line for a win, coming off 42 pitches just three days prior, it was April 1st.  And literally the last two batters he faced were liner to short, and liner to first.  They took him out because he could go to the showers knowing that he pitched six very strong innings and was in line for the win.  That was the psychological boost, not leaving him out there gassed to give up a bunch of hits and runs.
    • Yep..really like Hays and what he can potentially bring to us. That being said, this is pretty much his last chance if he wants to be a starter in Baltimore.
    • Right now Hays is my favorite player on the team.   I like his enthusiasm and all-out style of play.    It has its downside viz. exposure to injuries, but it’s fun to watch players who play like their hair is on fire.    In terms of what he can be offensively, I think Jones is a pretty good upper limit and aspiration, unless and until Hays is able to refine his plate discipline in a way that Jones was never able to do.   To be fair, Hays has a 6.8% walk rate compared to Jones’ career 4.5%.    But, I think to be as good or better than Jones offensively, Hays will need to get his walk rate in the 8-9% range at least, and get his outside of the zone swing percentage under 35% (he’s at 37.7% for his career, Jones was 41.5%, league average is 30.6%). Hays should have good power but I think he’s a little short of Jones in that department.   
    • My expectation is for Hays and Santander to remain healthy and avoid the DL (or whatever it's called). That should go a long way to having a successful season for each of them. With that said, I'd be thrilled if Santander hit .250 with 30 homers and 100 RBI, with Hays hitting .270, 25 homers and 80 RBI. But is that what I expect from them? Probably not. I think my lowest expectation would be for Santander to hit .240, 20 homers and 85 RBI, and Hays to hit .250, 15 homers and 70 RBI. Anything less than that would be disappointing to me... or if they spent a considerable amount of time injured.
    • Per Baseball Savant, Santander’s hard hit % was in the 38th percentile, so below average.   https://baseballsavant.mlb.com/savant-player/anthony-santander-623993?stats=statcast-r-hitting-mlb I think SG is fundamentally right that people should not put too much stock in stats accrued over 37 games.    At the same time, like you I see Santander as a player who is still improving.
