The Waiver Wire

Another former TB Ray reliever DFAd

Casey Sadler, pitched for LAD last year

https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/s/sadleca02.shtml?utm_campaign=Linker&utm_source=direct&utm_medium=linker-

The Rays are just flat out stacked with talent. Look at some of the trades they’ve made recently because of 40 man issues. They have a 40 man crunch. Sadler was traded to the Dodgers last year. He produced. The Dodgers are also stacked. 

Sadler and Faria are two former Rays that have produced in the MLB, instead we have a former Ray, Cole Sulser, on the 40 man that has no MLB track record. 

I don’t know how are one inning relievers like Armstrong, Fry, Phillips, Kline, etc..., keep surviving when there is actual quality out there. And guess what... we have lots of players on our 40 man, maybe 5-10, that could easily be DFA’d.

Valaika was claimed by Arizona. He had cleared the whole AL and half the NL. Remember this happened with Alberto last year. Don’t be surprised that if he is DFAd if we claim him.

Surhoff’s nephew 

Though Moran was Surhoff’s nephew. Does he have more than one playing professional baseball?

Yeah, Greg Zaun. Haha. Jk. It’s really Colin Moran the 3B from Hou/Pitt. He was rumored in a possible Britton deal with us.

Both Brian and Colin are his nephews. It’s on his BR player page

Just saw that Nick Margevicius was DFA'd by SD.  Could be more rotation depth.  23 year old LHP who may have been rushed a little bit to the majors.

Was thinking the same thing. Thought he’d be an easy improvement to the rotation.

Guarantee he has more value than DSJ

I was hoping we’d get Sadler when he was dumped by the Rays, and was disappointed when the Dodgers of all teams picked him up.

 I’d like to get him now.

Claimed on waivers by Seattle.

Could be a nice pickup, though he'll be 30 in July.  I appreciated these updates by you and others.

I was coming to post about this too.  A side effect of how strikeout crazy the game has gotten - relievers with 5/1 K/BB ratios in near full season workloads getting DFA'd.  He could come close while Givens focuses on RHB and Harvey tries the fireman thing, though that would be less fun than Harvey following in Dad's footsteps.

The Twins as super team must think they know something we don't about Tyler Clippard - I get Rogers/May/Romo/Duffey/Graterol ahead of this guy obviously for their 2020 bullpen, but Clippard?

Harper's 18 K-BB% about midway between Givens's sturdy 23, and Armstrong's 14 for Orioles second best reliever at that metric last year, discounting Harvey's 27 in a mere 6 innings.

    • Horn blasts arent phony.  There's a group of 10 or 12 real fans who go to a gate of the stadium where they can see a tiny sliver of the field through bars and they sit in lawn chairs and stand on ladders and follow the game and blow horns and do some chants.  They wear masks and say they social distance.  The Phillies even turned on TVs over concession stands in their view so they can watch the game. They call themselves the Phandemic Crew or something like that. Aaron Boone and the Yankees actually complained about them saying the horn blasts were timed with pitches just like fans who try to disturb golfers by making noise just as they swing. Google Phandemic, you'll find articles about the m.
    • I like it.     Thought it was really a fun vibe in Philly.    I like their phony crowd noise too, complete with random horn blasts.    Overall, I think the sound engineers are getting better at what they’re doing with experience.   
    • Having watched or heard bits of several games on both TV and radio, I’m very pleased with this year’s broadcast crews, including the folks on the postgame shows. Scott Garceau and Ben McDonald have been very solid on TV — especially McDonald, who’s really good at passing along his knowledge and observations.    Bordick is much better on the postgame than on the broadcasts, and a big upgrade over Dempsey IMO.    Whoever he’s been paired with has been solid.     On radio, I’ve really liked what Geoff Arnold brings to the table, and Melanie Newman has been solid as well.    Overall, there’s a lot to like here.    
    • I think teams are going to be really reluctant to take on money just because of the uncertainty of the world right now. There's a totally possible chance the stadiums are empty or at a reduced capacity next year too.
    • Yep, Eddie had a walkoff steal of home in 1979: https://www.baseball-almanac.com/feats/Game_Ending_Steals_of_Home.shtml
    • He did! Finished at 103 pitches and got the 10th K. Another masterful performance, commands four pitches and keeps the hitters off balance.
