Chris Davis left camp this morning after coming down with the same illness.

“Not feeling well this morning,” Hyde said. “Hopefully, it’s not too long. But the thing’s kind of going around a little bit and he didn’t feel well, and so we got him checked out and sent him back.”

I'm not so sure that a .175 hitter has ever gotten so much attention before.  I'm aware I've posted several times on here about Davis but....so have a lot of you.  I'm part of the problem, I freely admit it.  

Quite frankly, I don't care how he got bigger, etc.  If he feels it helps, I hope that's what he needs to feel better at the plate.  I'm just kinda tired of obsessing over Davis...only really care if he retires or gets cut.  Anything else is an annoyance, really.

You spelled money wrong.   It's m-o-n-e-y, not  a-t-t-e-n-t-i-o-n

This actually depends.  A bigger guy like Davis with a bigger frame could. I'm sure he hired a full time trainer and food specialist.  He already had the mass, just needed to convert it.  Now if he had a smaller frame and big growth, ala Barry Bonds, I'd say...yeah. Also, if he was looking into retiring he probably wasn't working out as hard. 

I have an XXL frame and am inch shorter than Davis. I could probably add 25 pounds in a few months if I followed a beer and pizza diet.  But I don’t think 25 pounds of muscle is anyway possible.

If you don't take the bat off your shoulder it doesn't matter if it's lighter.

I'm not sure I'm following you. The weight of the bat makes a big difference for whether you can get the bat off your shoulder in time. When players can't, they don't swing.

A lighter bat isn't going to help when he takes a center-center strike three.

To be fair, the bug has hit several of the players.

Exactly, I think they are doing this with any player showing the signs of illness.

Seams like it happens just about every spring camp.

Flu season still going strong, and combine that with all those players traveling to Florida and being around each other it's a recipe for getting sick. Better now than closer to the end of March.

Most .175 hitters don't get paid $23M per season.

    • Looks like it.  woot!
    • Yep, and considering that he is Rule 5 eligible again this off-season, it would help to know how his stuff plays in short relief (with the AAA/MLB ball) before either adding him to the 40-man roster or risking losing him. Prior to this season, I had him in the second tier of potential 40-man roster adds, but he has leapfrogged past guys like Sedlock, Fenter, Adam Hall, and Mason McCoy  
    • They've been using Peralta as a starter most of the year and may continue to do so, but I think his future will end up in the pen. they need to find out whether he can pitch on back to back days if needed where he could bring his upper 90s heat. He could be a Tate replacement.
    • If all goes well for Baumann he could be in the rotation next April in Baltimore. Im curious if the plan on stretching out further Peralta to start as well. AAA has proven to be a big challenge for many of our previous prospects. So this experiment should be interesting. 
    • There is really no such thing as a 28-year-old prospect. Watkins was a guy who had some success at lower levels and was brought in to compete for a spot in the AAA rotation and made the most of his opportunity. Yaz was a guy who never dominated AA but was decent in half a season at AAA at 27, had some raw power, and was brought in to shore up the Giants AAA OF situation. Tyler Herb, who the Orioles acquired in that trade in 2019 was quite good at 25 in AA in 2017 (better than Yaz ever was at that level) but struggled in 2018 in AAA. The Orioles probably hoped he would compete for a spot in the AAA rotation and, best case scenario, end up with a handful of productive Major League starts like Watkins has this year. All three of those guys are/were a half step above org guys, and would have become org guys if things didn't go well (as they didn't for Herb).
    • All good moves. Looking forward to putting eyes on the short right-handed Pinto to see if he's guy or not.  It was time for Baumann to take that step as his command has come around of late. Always interesting when they have to pitch with the major league ball at AAA and how long it takes to adjust. Young is the most interesting of the free agent pitchers signed last year so glad to see him challenged at Aberdeen. Rom to Bowie make a lot of sense. It will be interesting to see how his stuff plays against Double-A hitters. I'm hoping they move Peralta to a reliever role and see how he looks there. It was time to see how he spins a major league ball. Vespi is really moving and it's clear the Orioles think he's close to being a big league left-handed reliever, perhaps a replacement for Scott or Fry is they are dealt. The only one missing here is Felix Bautista. While command is still not good, it's better and it's time to see what he looks like with a major league ball against more mature AAA hitters.
    • @MurphDogg I appreciate your reply, it does help clear things up a bit, so question, was Spencer Watkins considered a non-prospect who just got a call because they needed a warm body, and he turned out to do well? Yaz Was considered a non-prospect, and he has obviously done well, was that an extreme outlier?
