Wonder if we put him back in a rotation....in 2018, he threw 130 innings at 3.73 era. Gave up 111 hits and 38 walks.

I would imagine they'll tell him to prepare as a starter and then decide in ST. Seems like a long shot to me but then, today is the first time I'd ever heard his name.

I don't see how someone who made it into the second round of the rule V draft making it a full season in a ML rotation.

After the rule 5 waiting period they can. It’s half a season, so we”ll probably know what we have by then 

No, they can’t option him this season.

Have they changed the rules? I thought it was 81 games or some number around there where you had to offer the player back to the original team, and then after that they could be optioned

— If a team chooses a player in the Rule 5 Draft, they will pay $100,000 to the team he was chosen from.

— The receiving team will put the player on its Major League 25-man roster for all of the following season, and must be active for a minimum of 90 days.

— If the player does not remain on the Major League roster, he is placed on outrightwaivers. If he goes unclaimed, he is offered back to his original team for $50,000. If the original team declines, the receiving team may option him to the minor leagues.

They can be *injured* for a portion of the season.

Thank you for clarifying

By 2021, I feel like one (or two, if we're lucky) of the Akin/Baumann/Kremer batch will join Means (Cobb too I guess) as someone who can usually make it five innings, but next year wow - we may be in position to set records for fewest appearances of at least X number of innings.   That isn't necessarily bad - three and flee might give five and dive a run for its money.  Probably the more madcap the first half of next year's pitching strategy is, the more entertaining that'll be in the last couple months of waiting for a few of the better players.

    • The same that you could put on any oline that had to deal with 5 to 7 players every play! Its the Ravens fault for not leaving the pistol formation that would allow the screen and more passes to be there. There were open receivers that Lamar missed. But, the formation again didn't help. The bolded part! He's the QB and they shoulder the load good or bad. In our case he's in control either passing or QB running 66% of the time. So its going to be more on him than on an offense that throws and runs 50/50. The drops didn't help but that happens some times to all teams
    • Ok ...Thanks   So I am not sure he's referring to injury. Even if he's not seriously injured running Quarterbacks dont tend to age well is the poster's point.   Vick played until he was 35 but wasn't a full time starter after 32. I think is pretty safe to assume you cant count on after 32. But that doesn't even matter right now.  
    • Its a good point the OP makes, there are a lot of question marks and I would suspect these teams aren't done yet either.  There is a reason the MFY just freed up $10 in space with the Ottavino trade.  They also have German and Montgomery who could help.
    • With the broadcast team announced...  Palmer, Brown, McDonald... okay! Arnold, Hollander, Long, Newman...  meh.  We'll give them some time. Garceau... my soul died a little.
    • Assuming most of the good Bowie pitchers have to try to do Norfolk world domination before maybe an Akin/Kremer sized sip, would anyone want Jake Arrieta at ANY price for the Sutcliffe things? Floor starting pitchers with little October upside are the one group (Happ, Quintana, Lester) of players falling far short of Fangraphs guesses among recent signees.   I somewhat suspect no one very good really wants 2021 Arrieta pitching for them, but as ever...we may have a job for some qualified major leaguer. He'd be more entertaining than a Milone clone, but does the regime feel he's anyone for Kremer, Akin, etc. to be around (non-Cobb category) for a year.
    • I agree with all of your points.  Flacco was 27 when we won the Super Bowl. That's 3 full years away for Lamar FWIW
    • How much of this can you put on the O-line and lack of separation by receivers?  I feel like he shoulders so much pressure with the "If I don't make the play, no one will" attitude, that yes he does tend to hold onto the ball too long instead of throwing it away.   What about the two HUGE drops by Dobbins wide open in space?  That first drop was game changing in my opinion.   People love the traditional stand back in the pocket and sling it everywhere QB.  Which is why everyone now loves Josh Allen.  People love to pile on Lamar for being 1-3 in the playoffs.  Josh Allen is 2-2.  Lamar has an MVP to his name at 24 (Josh played at an MVP level this year).  He was awful in that Chiefs playoff game.  I imagine Josh Allen will be looking to get paid this offseason as well.  Market shows he will be in the same 35-40 million dollar range, now that Watson signed the deal in Houston. Hard to say you are getting less than all of these other QB's that, in theory have produced equally, or less than Lamar has.  I get it and the thought process.  But, its either pay the man or risk being awful, while attempting to find your next franchise QB.     I pay the man.
