O's claim RHP Ryan Eades from Twins

I guess this is a  case of Elias must have some analytics magic to apply to something on this guy to make him way better than the one run per AAA game worse than Yac he appears from his numbers? His AAA ERA is just about one run worse than Jimmy Yacabonis'.

10 years ago I'd say why not take a flier on a guy with 11 K/9 in AAA.  But the Rochester Red Wings Eades has been pitching for actually, really have 18 different guys with 10+ K/9 this year.   Eades just happens to be one of them with a 5.51 ERA.

Yeah like I said, I'd take him over Yac, who 5.56 in AAA this year.

Championship!

Just how many Ryan/Rylon's can a team have?  Have we set another record?  Did Nolan start this craze?

Real talk though, this is 100% about Yacabonis being out of options for next year. He was going to be DFA at some point.

Meanwhile Eades has options for 2019 plus two more years, says MLBTR.

Insert the obligatory "will provide organizational depth" assessment. 

Does this mean the same thing as dumpster diving?

I'm glad the O's have Elias rather than Duquette(who I never liked), but Duquette was often criticized for these types of signings. Yet Elias is not. Does he really think he going to find good pitchers by taking other teams throwaways? How do these signings fit into the rebuild? Don't the O's already have enough lousy pitchers? Why can't the pitchers already on the team keep pitching in the games? It's not like winning is a priority this season.

Duquette was doing it with a team that was supposed to be contending for the playoffs.
