Those players are relatively cheap, they're not going to bring back a top prospect in a deal, and could play some role on the next good O's team. I guess Iglesias i on the fringe of that last statement. So there's not much reason to trade them, I think Elias stands pat on those players.
I assumed as much. When I do one of these little mini-research projects it's usually because I'm interested in the outcome because I really don't know. In this case I thought the number would be low, but I had no idea it would be zero. If someone eventually takes a high school pitcher 1-10 and they make the Hall it will be unprecedented.
Which leads to why... and my speculation would be that doing the things necessary to get the attention of scouts and get drafted in the top 10 at 18 are hugely counterproductive to having a long career. I'd guess most 18 year old ace pitchers are destined for surgery.
If you are worried about Adley based on the SSS we've seen after coming off of mono, I don't think anyone can say anything that would ease your concern. Unfortunately, there is no minor league season this year, so you just have to wait until next year before he might do something to make you feel better about him. Me? I'm not worried about him at this point.
