Yup. No point of losing any service time at this point. Diaz will stand out more than Mountcastle, as far as service clock games, if he has a big AAA year. With Mountcastle the FO could cite his age and defensive issues.
Beckham would still have 30+ games to serve on his 80 game suspension. So he wouldn’t be on the OD roster. He’d then have to play in the minors at least for some time to get his timing back. I could see him signing a milb deal with the often used June 1st opt out date.
Aaron Sanchez intrigues me. HOU acquired him at the end of last season. For his career he had only thrown his curveball over 30% once in a game started. He did that with HOU in his first start.
He’s only 27. He’s healthy. He’s got a better profile than anyone on the list of available SP.
