Frederick Keys ....

Here are the minor league roster limitation rules for all Major League Baseball-affiliated minor league teams:
Triple-A and Double-A teams are limited to 25-man rosters.
Class A-Advanced and Class A teams are limited to 35 players under control with additional limitations in regard to prior minor league experience.
Teams at lower levels have 35-man active rosters with limitations on minor league service time.
===========================================================================
Given these roster size limitations, players were left unprotected for the Minor League portion of the Rule 5 draft.

He didn't exactly dominate A+.   But even if you are right there are still 22.

Garcia and Peluffo are gone, minor league Rule 5 selections.

Lebron needs to move up as well, 26 years old, pitched 100 innings in A+ and was solid in the AFL.

So you think 13 IP in the AZ  is more important than a 1.60 WHIP at A+ in 82 IP.

No, I also think if you aren’t ready to put Lebron in AA at 26 years old, he probably doesn’t have a spot in the organization.

Probably, but if he makes it to ST, what he does there will be the determining factor.

Some of the starters are relievers and some of the relievers get released.  Good chance Vespi and Wilson are in the pen. Peralta, also.  Bishop and Hanifee could get promoted to Bowies bullpen.   Hanifee could return to Fredericks rotation but I don't think Bishop does.

I don't think Vespi and Wilson are going to the pen.  Both were effective left handed starters last year  after being converted by the new regime.  Why would they put them back in the bullpen, where they were in 2018 after having great years (and being more valuable) as starters in 2019?  I agree that there's a glut of pitchers (especially starters) here, but that's a good kind of problem to have.

 

If I had to guess, I would say they'll go with a six-man rotation of Rodriguez, Wilson, Fenter, Vespi, Rom, and Ofelky.  Not sure what happens to Knight and Bishop, who had subpar seasons at Frederick last year (especially Knight).

    • Sorting of wishing the Orioles could play the Pirates 18 times a season right now instead of the Yankees, Rays, etc. 
    • One of my favorites from them/him. I'm still pretty torn up by all this. Him and Anthony Bourdain both, messed me up they were so f-ing stupid...  
    • Looks like an Israeli company has developed a test, hope it can be mass produced quickly.
    • Echoed.  I heard beat reporter Susan Slusser on the FG team preview podcast call Kemp the favorite.  Their lineup except Olson is exclusively RHH, so Kemp gets the edge on Barreto/Mateo there.  Plus they have Neuse hopelessly blocked by Chapman so they had him goofing with 2B Moustakas style last September.  And they took a Rule V infielder. Hanser Alberto might be Oakland's fourth string 2B. I am almost positive Oakland will keep whichever of Barreto/Mateo they like best to succeed Semien, who despite being beloved has likely played his way out of their price range. MLBTR has summarized: https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2020/02/athletics-second-base-franklin-barreto-jorge-mateo-2020.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+MlbTradeRumors+(MLB+Trade+Rumors) The Tigers have Schoop, so if I'm figuring correctly we should have a shot at first claim if we want.  Perhaps Luke is thinking of just the right lowball token guy right now.
    • I put up a better version I have on my harddrive  
    • 3 years before he put it on vinyl! 1973. This is really the version that runs thru my head... besides the commercial version you've heard 10,000 times. Skip this^^^^^ Watch this one! vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
    • That’s a worthwhile take, and not something to entirely rule out.  They pitch with different levels of maturity today so perhaps you’re more right than you think, but I value the speed changing ease that Hall can utilize and their stuff is otherwise close to even.  Ranking them closely is intelligent and there’s data to support you too.  Still, it’s hard to not have Hall higher due to ceiling height potential alone....it could end up higher and he’s further from his peak than Baumann is; two significant factors.   I don’t see him thriving at Norfolk initially either and he may not be in the class of their rotation at the season’s start.  8 to 13 starts into the year however it might be a case of him going up and never looking back.   Strong supporters of him like you and I probably expect this on some level.  That’s a mean 1-2 punch and I’m happy to have both in our colors.  I want lots of innings and lots of learning if there’s adversity.  Ornery Baumann could be devastating and having him in a tier by himself is logical.
