There is no doubt Anthony Servideo brings the most unique hair style of any of the Orioles draftees so far. Plate discipline guy at the plate who got off to a red hot start after completely bombing in the Cape Cod League last summer with wood bats.
Defensively, a 50 arm suggest he might have enough arm to stick at shortstop, but there are mixed opinions on whether he can stay there. He's a 30-40 (scouting grade, not home runs) power guy and though he's got some strength, game power is not
If we're punting 2022, getting Trey to a better team is a kindness.
I certainly picture him here working off the rust this year, and hopefully with health being back to some kind of plus for a better 2022 team.
Kjerstad has some catching up to do, but it isn't inconceivable sometime NEXT summer RMC/Hays/Kjerstad/Santander/Diaz can all outplay him for that 5/9ths of the lineup.
Like Cruz/Ozuna, you kind of imagine his market value floats some depending how NL DH turns out.
Good Trey could get himself some numbers inheriting that Donaldson/Ozuna seat behind Acuna/Albies/Freeman, but then there's the whole getting non-tendered thing.
I think this and Santander is more teams trying to squeeze the Rosario, Pederson and DuValls of the world.
I’m skeptical anything comes of this. The O’s are unlikely to just give him away yet the Braves are unlikely to give anything of value for a player coming off cancer. Probably just Braves seeing how desperate we are to cut costs.
A big point mentioned here is that Galvis had apparently put on some lbs and that could have effected his defense in 2020 and that he is apparently in better shape.
