But, he stinks

Based on what?  35 IP in the MLB.

1) He is a starter

2) In the International League in 2019  he had  a 2.33 ERA, 1.071 WHIP in 15 starts

3) In 2018. 4.57 ERA,  27 starts,  157 IP  167 K 1.230  in a AAA hitters league the PCL.

Sounds like Wojo to me. A good candidate for a cheap stop gap starter.

Cotton gave up 28 HR in 129 mlb IP, and that was before the juiced ball. Also, OPACY. 

Yeah, it's not a performance pick. He's a really talented arm that had one bad season in the majors and then got hurt.

Luis Oviedo and Jose Fermin are a couple of interesting Indian prospects that were left unprotected.  Both are very young and years away from contributing, but talented upside.

Oviedo will be 20 in May.  He was really hyped up as a prospect going into 2019 and had a disappointing year.  Here is a scouting report from Prospects Live from October 2018.

5. Luis Oviedo, RHP

Age: 19 (5/15/99)

Highest Level: A

57 IP, 2.05 ERA, 2.76 FIP, 10.58 K/9, 2.68 BB/9, .189 AVG. - A-/A

Oviedo proved to be too much for the NYPL despite being two years younger than the average pitcher in the league. The projectable 6-foot-4 Venezuelan made nine starts in the NYPL striking out 61 in 48 innings before making two starts in the Midwest League to end his season. Oviedo has a fastball with life that sits 92-94 that he commands well. He gets great extension and can reach back a little more and pull down 96-97 when he needs it. Oviedo throws a curveball and a slider, and each projects as average or better. His changeup will likely be his best secondary pitch though. It can be firm at times but he sets it up well and it has good tumbling action to it. Oviedo had two mediocre runs through rookie ball, but really put it together in 2018. We could have a future number-two starter here if one of the breaking balls finds another gear. ETA: 2022.

He was not throwing as hard in 2019 and did not pitch after July 17th.

Fermin is more steady than spectacular.  He gets overlooked with the Indians stockpile of middle infielders.  However, he think he is a starting 2nd baseman in 3 or 4 years.  Fermin will be 21 in March and should be in High A.

If either of these players are selected, it would be a waste of a roster spot in 2020 and not be getting the game action in 2020 would not be great for their development, but they could be useful players down the road.

Thanks for putting together the above list. It seems that that first few starters, like you pointed out, would be upgrades over the bottom of the 40 man, but are they upgrades over Brooks and Ynoa?  Not to debate the DFA of Brooks and Ynoa, but to point out that Elias apparently didn’t want to carry a similar player on the 40 man all offseason. 

The good thing here is that every time someone signs a FA there will have to be a corresponding DFA. That’s where I’d really like to see Elias start making some small upgrades.

Just saw that Fenter and Sedlock were left off the 40 man and exposed  to the Rule 5. (Per Roch)

That is true. Work back in this thread for discussion.

Is that the same Nestor Cortes we picked in 2017? Is it really possible for a guy to get picked in the Rule 5 twice? We should do it just for the novelty.
