He might never have been on waivers. Or possibly so esoterica that I am unfamiliar with.  I'll want to become familiar. 

Wouldn't he have to be on some kind of "esoteric" waiver to be traded in the 1 PM to 8 PM window?

After 8 PM he would have been a FA so O's wold have no rights to trade.

75k outside of the top 10 rounds says something.  

Elias said we thought he’d be a late day two pick. Late day two would be rounds 6-10. 

He also started and pitched in the NY Penn League. I’m sure we’ve seen a lot of this guy.

I'll want to know that as well. 

They go to arb unless they agree with him on a contract like we did with Bleier.

That would be the other option and a complete failure of reporting by Roch, Trezza, Connolly. The only reason I don’t think that is what happened is because someone I trust who would know told me that he was in fact on waivers.

Me too. But that is an option. I also thought I may be unaware of a loophole.  I want to hear more. If this was just someone reporting and then everyone running with it I would be sad.

The  Dexter Fowler fiasco has made me cautious of that.

When the Marlins are willing to outspend you things look bleak.

Following this move, the Orioles’ projected payroll is $65 mm and the Marlins’ is $51 mm.

No, he was claimed by multiple teams and the Orioles worked out a trade. Never passed through waivers.

So he will go through the arb process?

The O’s are still going to lose at least 95 games next year. I just hate how they’re not even trying to make the 2020 club better for the fans. I’m not asking them to try and contend. But don’t make it unbearable. Why should I re-up my season tickets? I agree with Tony. I hate how cold and soulless organizations become when they’re rebuilding. It is the sheer definition of tanking. And people wonder why attendance is down and apathy is king. And I like Elias, btw. It just sucks.

Rich Dubroff reported that he cleared waivers
