Definitely. Although I did enjoy those one or two good Eshelman starts. It's like a blind guy walking through traffic unscathed. 

If you can dodge traffic you can dodge a ball.

So it's been a busy offseason, 3 acquisitions already.   Cole Sulser, Pat Valaika, and Marcus Diplan.   Damn shame we won't be able to meet the new guys at Fanfest.

I'm not convinced that they haven't been planning some sort of surprise replacement event.

I've been very much drinking the "wait and see" kool-aid, and it could make me look like a fool.

Agreed, and good point about the Rule 5 draft kind of guy. This is a Rule 5 kind of guy that we can keep in the minors, so why not? Rather have a guy like this then an Eshelman-type guy.

Is Diplan eligible to be taken in the Rule 5 by another team?

Tigers had a full 40 man

The Brewers announced that they claimed infielder Ronny Rodriguez from the Tigers. The 27-year-old has struggled in two seasons with the Detroit organization, showing some power and defensive versatility but demonstrating some of the worst on-base skills in the league. Through an even 500 plate appearances at the MLB level, Rodriguez is a .221/.254/.396 batting line. He still has multiple option years remaining, so he can be shuttled between Triple-A and the Majors in both 2020 and 2021.
Also departing the Tigers is right-hander Marcos Diplan, who was claimed by the Orioles, per a team announcement. He appeared in 38 games between the Double-A affiliates for the Twins and Brewers, totaling 68 2/3 innings of 4.85 ERA ball with 9.6 K/9 against 5.8 BB/9. Diplan was ranked among the Brewers’ 10 to 20 best prospects back in 2017 but has seen his stock dip in recent seasons as he’s begun to bounce around the waiver circuit. Notably, Diplan was has now been claimed by the Tigers and Orioles this winter — the teams with the No. 1 and No. 2 waiver priorities. He has a minor league option remaining.

Diplan is on the 40 man roster. So no.

Sounds like a nice arm, who they just converted into a reliever this offseason. Command and control seem like major issues, but sounds like the kind of arm you take a flier on. 

Obviously walks are his biggest issue as his BA and SGL against were pretty good: .225/.343/.387/.731.

With 40-man space available, why not? 

By, This off-season, you mean the majority of the 2019 season? He was a RP from May until the end of year. The Twins used him a couple of times as opener, but he was rarely facing a batting order twice after May 5th.

From his full transition(May 10th to now) 

44 IP:  3.25 ERA, 1.24 WHIP,  24.6K%, 15.3 BB%  4.54 FIP.  .178 BA against.

Yes, I meant this past season, not off season.

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Slider: 60

If he can learn to control that, he could be a nice bullpen arm.

Is it wrong that I read that line in Herve Villechaize's voice? 

If it is, we're both wrong.  😄
