All the quick to find prospect stuff is years old.

I'm guessing Luke will look at some video and post something about him at 5 in the morning.

So the league did speak and agreed he was worth 10M?  Marlins would have been really high on WW priority(if they claimed) and are not in a win it now mode.

23 year old 14th round pick in 2019.  Put up okay numbers in short season ball. 

I mean, they might as well have just released him and got nothing.  This kid is not likely to see the major leagues. Org guy.

Hadn't he passed through waivers first?

Just drafted this year and did well against younger competition. 

So did the 16th round guys involved in the Matusz trade.

I was just giving a hot take view.

Could the O's be sending some money with him? 

Maybe the Marlins think they can get him for less than 10M?

We'll see what he ends up making.

Honestly, He's less of a long shot than 2 18 year old Dominicans.Glad that we got something! I would have preferred we signed him to a reasonable 2-3 year deal.

Probably won’t turn into anything, but you never know.   He got a $75k bonus, which seems pretty high for a 14th round senior sign.

Not on the 40 man roster.

▪ Round 14 (No. 411) — Pepperdine pitcher Easton Lucas: Lucas, 22, has held opponents to two runs over 7 2/3 scoreless innings in four combined appearances in the GCL (three innings, one appearance) and Batavia (4 2/3 innings, three appearances). Lucas has struck out eight batters while giving up seven hits and three walks.

 

Marlins must have seen him a bit while scouting Bleday.

Depends on the two 18 year old Dominicans.  College seniors taken after the 10th round have a very low chance of ever seeing the Majors. Low floor and low ceiling here.

Even if they do pay a little. This is a re-building team with a tight budget. You wouldn't see this unless they think are getting a discount on his value.

We need more information though on this before any conclusion though
