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.

    • They have a sweet deal because they push that charge onto all subscribers, even if the subscriber could care less about baseball or the Orioles. But then again, Verizon FIOS just changed our video franchise fee from $9.95 to $29.95 with no heads up and explanation, so cable companies continue to add charges onto your "rates" while their service becomes worse and worse.
    • Yep.  Watching a game with Thorne and Palmer was a treat no matter what the score was.  And Tony is correct, Thorne was a national announcer, he brought a feeling of gravitas to the game despite the fact that it was a regional thing.  
    • Exactly, I can watch the Orioles get kicked around by the Rays or Yankees when Thorne and Palmer are on the call. I can't say the same with the current batch of broadcasters. 
    • I like Scott, and I'm sure he was cheaper than Gary, but Gary was like having a national announcer call your games. Even with his quirks, his humor and his chemistry with Palmer was a good listen most of the time, even during hard to watch games.
    • Beats me.  I don't really get it but I am sure they're happy being in the stone age and pissing off their fans even more.  The team is already hard enough to watch, be thankful some of us still want to watch it and make it easier for us to do so.
    • Oh I totally get it. I paid for Directv in North Carolina for many years only to watch O's games, because it was my only option. I'd happily pay quite a bit to be able to stream the O's without a cable subscription, but I don't know how many other people would.  The cable companies and RSNs still have a pretty sweet deal because so many people pay a fee in their bill to cover local sports rights that couldn't care less about sports.    
    • Right, that's what gets me, if all but the Orioles and I think the Dodgers have a way to make money streaming, why do the Orioles think they will lose money?
