Jon Meoli: Has 6 non rostered O's on the OD roster

Recommended Posts

https://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/orioles/bs-sp-orioles-opening-day-roster-projection-20200710-ky7xzjlrkfgblcbxgq2ilbxulu-story.html

With two weeks to go:

Holiday, Valiaka, Wilkerson, Williams, LeBlanc and Milone.

I don't see that happening.  Probably 2 or 3 IMO.

Here is what I think: (Bold are the ones different from Meoli)

Catchers:  (3) Severino, Sisco, Wynns

Infielders: (7) Davis, Alberto, Iglesias, Ruiz, Nunez, Martin,  IF/OF Velazquez

Outfielder:  (4) Hays, Stewart,  Santander, Smith (I don't know if Santander and/or Smith tested positive or were just exposed and in 14 day quarantine. I will change this if they tested positive.)

Starters: (5) Means, Cobb,  (non roster LeBlanc and Milone) , Wojo

Relievers (11) Harvey, Givens, Bleier, Castro, Armstrong, Carroll, Scott, Velazquez,   Fry, Sulser,  Stewart

I think being on the 40  man roster will mean a lot in making the OD roster.     A week later things could change.

Smith and Santander are sick and quarantining at the hotel.

Quarantined I understand.  Sick or have they just been exposed to someone that tested positive for Covid, I have not heard.   What is your source?

Teammate. They have symptoms, but didn't test positive. It's a precaution.

So you heard from a teammate of theirs that they tested negative but have symptoms? 

So if the symptoms go away and they test negative again do they get to start the season on the 30 man roster?

Terrible job by the Os to not put the young guys on the roster and let them play out this shortened season.

It's all about development.

Mountcastle had better be up 10 days from Opening Day and play at least 45 games.

It's just ridiculous he's gaming the service time of a fringe top 100 player.  I can't recall a similar circumstance.

Who do you want to see?   Mountcastle could be passed his service time in 7 days after OD.  If Akin is pitching well at Bowie the could be called up in two weeks after OD.   

We are going to see Harvey, Stewart and Hays from the beginning for the season if they stay healthy.

The same Hays who is only a rookie because they gamed his eligibility.

He had better put up 3.5+ WAR in his age 29 season for this to have been worth it.

I really don’t care who is on the roster for the start of the season if they think saving a few games will affect the new cba service time.  However if 15 games or so in the younger guys are not getting time that is different. 30-50 at bats isn’t going to make much difference in a young guys development for the next few years.

Akin, Lowther, Wells, Kremer, etc..all should be up.

The idea that guys like Milone, LeBlanc and Wojo are going to be in the rotation is a joke.  It was one thing for them to start a normal season in the rotation.  But at this point, I expected a lot of the young talent here and playing.  So, get them up now.

You also have Mountcastle and Diaz.  You just have to wait a few games and you get the extra year for all of them.

Whether or not it's necessary... is the downside of not being on the team for 10 days so bad that he has to be a really good player in his revised walk year for it to have been ta reasonable decision or "worth it?" What is the immediate cost you are trying to balance against here?

    • Yeah...in the minors. I don’t know anything about the guy, but if his defense is bad, he’s not really a utility guy, because utility guys by definition are glove-good at multiple positions. If he hits really well, he’s a 1B/DH type, and if he doesn’t hit well, he’s nothing. I just checked his stats at BBR and his D at both positions is poor.
    • What constitutes blazing? .400 OBP AND ~.900 OPS each of the last two years is pretty good. 
    • Me either but I voted Rom and Smith.
    • Does anyone know where to get minor league team home and away splits?  A quick perusal of Ashville hitters 2019 splits only reinforced the idea that Vavra 's 2019 numbers were possibly inflated due to a favorable home park.
    • Who are the #17 and #18 Prospects
    • You are right about the hours played each day. It is a big part of the culture on the islands. I have been coaching kids for the last 15 years in Central Florida. Like Drungo said, kids have more options and distractions in the US. It can be tough to get a kid to put the work in away from the field when we only practice two days a week in the younger ages. The higher end travel teams do not practice in the high school years, not at all. They can't because their kids are from all over the state, or even the nation. They show up and play for a week to ten days and go home until the next tournament. Meanwhile, the DR kids are at a Baseball Academy year round for 2-3 years before they sign a contract. It really isn't a level playing field, developmentally. There are a few places where you can go to a high school that is a baseball academy, TNXL is one here in Altamonte Springs, Florida. TNXL is run by the Scorpions organization.  More kids in Florida play baseball than many Northern states, but the burnout rate is high in Florida as well. Year round baseball, or any sport for that matter, is not a good thing long term. Overuse injuries, such as all of the elbow and shoulder issues for pitchers are a direct result of this. College coaches all want to know what other sports a kid plays. The three sport stars are discouraged from playing three sports. Football is still king in Florida. Baseball also does not develop athleticism, although it demands it. So you have to play explosive movement sports, and/or train at a complex to develop the athleticism. That gets expensive, along with everything else you have to do to have a chance. My son worked out at the same place that Ryan Mountcastle and Blake Bortles worked out at. Excellent results.  The gap is closing with the proliferation of indoor facilities. Kids can work on their skills year round now. Seeing more kids from Pennsylvania in recent years who play the game at a very high level. That is a very good thing IMO.
