The Waiver Wire

I figured this would be a good place to discuss all things waiver wire.  

Marcos Diplan Cleared waivers and was outrighted to the minors.

Eric Hanhold is in DFA limbo currently.

Notable names currently in DFA limbo,

RH Reliever from the Astros Dean Deetz,


OF Austin Dean from the Marlins,

Hanhold clears. Have added some depth with claiming and later DFAing.

I remember the Jays used to do a lot of this under Anthopoulus. I believe they would go even more extreme, like immediately DFAing the guy after claiming. 

Anyway, we've managed to cycle out a lot of 40-man cruft while building out some decent upper minors depth. It's good stuff.

Odubel Herrera DFA’d...

Any takers?

Yeah, he had his fun, but he’s seriously declined. Plus the legal issues. I do not care, because the charges were dismissed, but some people will care and I doubt he’s worth the hassle.

RHP Jake Faria


26. Good 2017 with the Rays. Can start or relieve. 223 IP in AAA over 4 years with a 3.71 ERA. He’s out of options. 

There’s a case to be made that he’s at least better than a handful of pitchers on the 40 man roster. With Bryan Holaday here on a milb deal, we could DFA Wynns as well. 

I think Faria fits and could get some “starts”.

    • So, he doesn’t miss bats, he gives up homers, HR rate is high, his FIP and xFIP were in line with his ERA and he was overpaid.  His walk rate is good though. He isn’t good.     Now, all of that being said, in the last 2 full ML seasons, he has 58 starts.  He threw 180 Innings in 2021.  As was mentioned, he pitched 6 innings or more 18 times and only went less than 5 IP in 7 of his starts.   In 21 of his starts, he gave up 3 runs or less. Overall, he had 8 starts of 5 runs or more allowed. Btw, 2 of these games he came in as a reliever but pitched 6 and 7 innings, so I did include that in these “starter” Numbers”. Essentially, you have a guy who kept his team in the game for 75% of his appearances. That does have value on a team that has an awful staff and needs innings out of it. Is it an overpay?  Yes?  Does the money matter?  No.  If they had paid him what he’s worth, saying 3-4M, would that make anyone feel better?  Like, who cares about The extra few million? For 7 million bucks, I will take the same numbers he put up in 2021.     It’s not really a good signing but it’s they did spend some money and they did address the idea that they need innings out of their starter.  That’s about as much as we can hope for. 
    • I hate defending this team at times but if you are any of those pitchers would you come here or go to a team that can contend? 
    • Don’t the exact opposite of what? And your first paragraph is stuff that almost every team does and you don’t need to lose in purpose for several years in a row to accomplish that.
    • Would have preferred any of those other guts you listed: Bundy, Hill, Wacha or Kluber
    • Not that this move would excite anyone other than Lyles and his family/friends they have to spend some money.     I’m not saying spending $6M this year with a $1M buyout next year will flip the narrative about the Orioles but from an optics view alone they have to do something.  
    • What’s stopping them from making a move like Brault? This certainly should not. 
    • I'd guess that they will still sign someone like Brault in addition to the Lyle's signing.    I don't care for the signing, but if he can pitch to a shade over 5 ERA and 170-180 innings he'd be an ace in Baltimore.
