I'll speculate that there is no reason why a non-40 man roster player can't be placed on the 45-day IL. It doesn't require a move on or off the the 40-man. I just looked up the rules and it's not direct about how the 45 day IL can be used.

Players put on the 60 (now 45) day IL are paid their major league salary.   I don't see the O's doing that with Blach.  O's would DFA him from the 60 man roster but the O's will pay Blach a minor league salary.

JMO.

That last one you included is interesting.   The 60 man squad is specifically defined as the 40 man roster plus a taxi squad of 20 players.   So if we only have 37 guys on the 40, we can't add 23 non-roster guys to the 60.   Only 20.   That's how I read it.

I would think that is true, they would not want teams like the Orioles to purposefully DFA a bunch of players and keep stacking their taxi squad. Because let’s face it: I know, you know, everybody knows that a lot of the Oriole forty man is filler.

Shhh... don't let wildcard hear you!   He thinks we've got really difficult roster decisions to make with our 40.

Well he thought so about Justin Tucker and Christian Walker.

Well specifically in Blach’s case because he’s basically org filler. But if Rutschman (god forbid) gets a season ending hangnail they’d have to be able to have the option to place him on the 45-day IL even if he’s not on the 40-man.

Gets easier as players get injured.

Speak for yourself.  I don't even know who Justin Tucker is.

I counted 10 players on our 40 man roster that I wouldn’t want to lose.

Well that would explain why I don't know who he is.

Has anyone suggested he’d be a 5-6 WAR player?     I’ll be pretty darned happy if he manages to be a 2-3 WAR guy.   

Yeah!:skeletor:

Though I have been hoping 3.5. 

5 WAR would tie him with 2019 Pete Alonso...who hit 53 HRs! Mountcastle would be a Top 10 outfielder with 5 WAR. If he has one year of 5 WAR he would be on his way to being an Oriole legend. If he has seven years of @ 3 WAR/year, totaling 20+ WAR, would he not also qualify as an Oriole legend?

When I say a 2-3 WAR guy, I mean a guy who can sustain that level for a few years. It’s not as easy as it seems.    Trey Mancini was worth 3.5 rWAR last year with an .899 OPS.

Adam Jones was worth 3 WAR five times for us, never hitting 5. Markakis was worth 3 WAR twice, over 5 once. So yeah, it's tough.

(All bWAR, fWAR was even a bit worse as Jones only hit 3 four times)

    • So it’s Dan’s fault he was told to cut money?   Davis was signed before 16 but they needed the money for Matusz?
    • So it’s possible a player could receive ROY votes this year and still be eligible next year.... MLB needs to say anyone who qualifies for rookie status next year is ineligible this year.  Also I have been saying for years they need to extend the voting. Should have at least go from 3 to 5 places in the voting system. Would create more recognition for players. 
    • I did not think Z had good command last night, but it’s premature and wrongheaded to put him in the same sentence as Daniel Cabrera, who walked 5.2 per 9 in the majors and 4.6 per 9 on the minors.    Z walked 3.2 per 9 in the minors.    I realize that a pitcher can have decent control but poor command, but Cabrera proved over many years that he had little idea where the ball was going, to an extent few Oriole pitchers ever had.     There’s no way I’m putting Z in that category given his track record.    I know that’s not exactly what you were saying, but I wouldn’t even propose it as an analogy because they are completely different types of pitchers. (And Drungo, sorry for the Z thing but Zimmermann is a lot to type.)  
    • LF Hays made a nice catch for Zimmerman. In Game 1 Mountcastle could not quite get an early count foul pop by Meadows in a PA that I think ended up a 10 pitch walk.  I don’t think OAA reads that foul ball but it did seem like one some LF could get.  Long way but also big hang time.

    • Just got through the DVR, and here's the lead.  My goodness - that mustache.  It goes right to the childhood McGregor Flanagan reptilian brain stem.  It's hard to see almost anything else. At one look, I'd say it's maybe an interesting call between him and Cobb for Game 5 next year, while whatever shenanigans/surgeries with Baumann, Hall, Rodriguez (and to a lesser extent Smith/Lowther) are waited out. I heard the Driveline last offseason report, but that hits me wrong for 4-pitch mix guys.  I think I think the devil's bargain of the Driveline-type proposition is you give feel and get dominance.  I see Savant had him at 30 FB, 10 SL, 10 CH, so will be curious to see if a 4th pitch comes out in Turn 2. Great story, and could certainly be a once through order or up/down guy for peak Rutschman teams but would hazard a guess that his IP count medium to long term is probably negatively correlated with team success.  Akin has splashed the pool to grow the group to 6 of "SP's I hope make 150+ starts/OpenerFollows for the 2021 Orioles", but I think Lopez, Smith and Lowther are more my 7/8/9 guys, never mind the Fulmers and Stewarts of the waiver wire. I do hope Zimmermann and all those others have somewhere to continue hot (warm, at least) games in October, whether in Bowie, or at some Super Arizona Fall League to be named later.  October/November Super Arizona Fall League could be like the Futures Game every day if anything could be concocted after the World Series.  Darn tootin I want to see Grayson Rodriguez trying to get Wander Franco out then.
