Trade Bait 2020

The Catching market is moving.  D'Arnaud and Grandal with slightly bigger deals than expected.  Zunino was tendered.  Chirnos, Maldanado, and Castro are basically what's left on the C market.  Severino could have sneaky trade value because he's so cheap.  

You might say it was a C minus free agent catcher group after Grandal.  D'Arnaud was ranked #2 by some, and he was released by the Mets and I think the Dodgers early last season.  I agree that the O's catchers could have more trade value than people here seem to think.

I'm sure one of them would bring back a big return.

Severino has 5 years of control left.  He's cheap and did all the solid things you listed above.  Could be an ideal back up for Rutch one day.  It will be interesting to see what type of season he has this year.

I think ideally you probably don't watch Adley catching every single day. Severino has a lot of value on this team if the O's plan to let Adley DH or 1B once or twice a week.

I'm not sold Severino would be an upgrade over whomever else they stick back there when AR doesn't catch.  He had a nice first half but in the second half his OPS+ dropped to around his career average (71)

That's true. He's one of the players I'm excited to watch next year to see if he can return to that first half success.

I saw that he and Sisco graded in the bottom five in pitch framing in baseball. Just going to go out on a limb here and say that’s because of our terrible pitching. 

The only reason I’ve brought Severino up is because the status of the Catching market. It’s real thin, and they are the first FA to sign this offseason. 

Also, I’m not gonna lie, I’m in the camp of we should trade everything we can for 2022+. So that’s why I’m a bit more active in the trade threads.

Framing.  Some teams (read:  Orioles) just don't get the calls on the edges.  Easier to blame the catchers than the umps, I guess.  Sometimes innocent men get "framed."

He's 26...if someone offers us a younger prospect (that we like) for our potential future back up catcher I think we should jump on it.

Quick question and some thoughts.  Can Villar still be traded at this point?  If he is claimed could the O's pull him off waivers?

At this point, I feel like Bundy and Givens will be gone before the season starts.

With Villar being waived, if Bundy and Givens go, I would think Elias would pull the trigger on Mancini as well if he is made a solid offer.

I don't see a market for Alberto yet.  Some think Severino could be made available as the catcher market is hot, but I'm not sure if he would get much of a return.  I don't think there will be any other asset discussed between now and the start of the season.

1) there appears to be quite a bit of confusion and nobody seems to know.

2) Hopefully

3) Mancini is just two years younger than Villar, he start the arb process in 2020 and can be a free agent in 2022. So one would think he would be on the list to go sooner of later. He's just not expensive yet so you still have time, But I think the extra years of control make him more valuable. Many here thinks he has little or no value based on being a 1B and or poor outfielder

4) Alberto will need to repeat or get close to last year to build value IMO. If they can get something for Severino they should.

My understanding is he can still be traded, and the whole point of putting him on waivers was to force teams to make trade offers before the non-tender deadline.   This makes sense to me, because they didn’t need to put him on waivers in order to non-tender him, so why do it unless there’s some advantage to doing so?

So have the O's requested waivers?

Is he "on waivers"

Has he been on "outright waivers"? And would that mean conditional waivers or irrevocable waivers?

Is he on the 40 man now or no?

I thought they got rid of revocable waivers.   That’s why there was no second trade deadline this year.    But, I could be wrong.

Tomorrow afternoon should give us some answers but the whole thing is very confusing given Luke's posts and questions.

    • That's.... that's exactly what I'm saying. How are you not hearing yourself? He lost the job because he couldn't hit - like AT ALL - and the mounting pressure from all that not hitting was getting to be a strain on him and the organization. So they sent him down to work on that. Meanwhile, Elias doesn't want to - like you said yourself - go to McKenna or Hays. So they just throw whoever out there. If they weren't worried about Mullins' development they would have just kept him, but you can't keep a guy in the bigs with a broken swing. Wilkerson isn't any better defensively out there, that's obvious to see. But he could hit at least a LITTLE. And let's not forget Santander and Stewart got CF looks as well. 
    • I don't love LeBlanc, but at least it will probably prevent a Cashner reunion. 
    • Notice they haven't punished the Red Sox yet? I'm betting MLB and the Red Sox got together and canned Cora so they could try and do the slow fade on the Red Sox getting caught cheating again.
    • Certainly not by me, but I think it will probably be old news to the casual fans in a few years. The only think they could have done to make it stick was have them vacate the title, as impractical as that may have been. 
    • Fans were not super keen on Christian Walker, but he's a starter in Arizona now. I think Cedric Mullins has shown enough potential (a year removed from .289/.346/.472 in AAA and 21 SB at 23yo) to get the benefit of the doubt that he had a down year instead of being branded as hopeless. 
    • I think it was worse because he lost it to Wilkerson.  They decided that a utility infielder was a better choice for CF than Mullins.  They decision to not promote McKenna or Hays had more to do with their development than it did what was happening at the ML level. I'm not convinced they sent Mullins down to facilitate his development.  I think they looked at him, looked at Wilkerson, and wanted Wilkerson in CF.  I think they have written Mullins off as a prospect.
    • If he can throw and he isn't a waiver guy, maybe a team like Pittsburgh could use him. If he can't and is, maybe we can give his slot to Mason Williams. Slow day here.
