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.

    • I remain pretty convinced that our pitching shows enough quantity and enough potential that we really don’t need anybody from outside: now is the time to see what our prospects can do, so throw them into the fray. But we need better catching, even if the best catcher we have now will only be our future back up, in the infield we have a glaring gap at third. I appreciate the difficulty in finding a worthwhile third baseman, on the other hand it probably would not be difficult to find somebody who is appreciably better than Ruiz. I’d be happy to give Bannon a tryout. Good or bad, he is a potential part of the future, and we might as well find out as soon as possible what he can do. One of the potential 3B guys I mentioned was a closer and throws 93-94, so he might be a possibility as a two-way player( probably not but ya never know.) I’m pretty sure that those are Mike’s two priorities right now
    • If he takes Adderall, for which he doesn't have a TUE, he could be suspended.
    • His violation was his ADD meds and I'm pretty sure he currently has the exemption.
    • I really hope that come Spring (or May or whenever) when it becomes apparent he is once again not able to contribute that he and the Orioles brass get together and see if they can negotiate a buy-out of sorts. Give him an advisor title and a portion of the money and allow Davis to bow out without enduring years more of embarrassment for the sake of money. I understand he looked better last spring and then things tanked for him in the shortened season, but I'm not convinced that was anything meaningful as opposed to a nice short showing against lesser competition (aka Jake Fox syndrome). I like Davis. I appreciate what he did in the good years. It's almost impossible to watch now. I change the channel for his ABs at this point. At this point, I cannot imagine it's a fun experience for him. For a guy that's made the money he's made, it's got to be worth walking away from some money. I understand walking away from 46 million isn't happening. But would the Orioles bite on a buy out if they could save $10M of that? At this point, it's got to be worth it to save even a couple million, particularly when/if it becomes clear that a full 162 game season will be played next year? Would Davis be willing to give up the delusion that there is a way back to contributing for him? Would that $10M be worth it to escape what has turned into a nightmare?
    • I don’t think anyone really knows what we would do if we were in that situation, because we’ve never been in a situation remotely like that.    The numbers involved are inconceivable to us mere mortals.    I don’t know if Davis deep down knows that he’s no longer capable of playing at a major league level, or whether the money has warped his objectivity and he believes he can still do it if he just figures out the right training regimen and approach.   Players are pretty capable of self-delusion even without 23 mm reasons to delude themselves each year.       
    • Nicorette is available.  How about we all chip in and send him a case...  He can chew 10 at a time then.  He'll back to his old self in no time!
    • I do think 3B is one of the harder positions to find a good player unless you develop or trade for one because they rarely are found on the DFA or Rule 5 markets. Thankfully, with Gunnar Henderson, Jordan Westburg and Coby Mayo to a lesser extent in the Organization, there are two-three potential impact players who could end up there.  In the meantime, I think they will probably end up giving a guy like Bannon an opportunity at some time next year if they don't find a better alternative to Ruiz this offseason or at the end of next spring through DFAs. Ruiz is a guy that Elias had ties to from his Houston scouting days, and if Ruiz was more athletic and could play other infield positions and outfield he could have value as a utility guy, but he doesn't hit consistently enough to be a good everyday guy at the major league level.
