I'm not sure if day 1 is considered Thursday or Friday when we started. So today is either day 5 or day 6. I believe he needs 6 days off the roster to avoid accruing a year, so could be any day if that's the only consideration. Things are kinda a mess right now though so who knows.

Apologies if this has been answered already, but was it ever determined whether the correct metric was days or games? At one point it wouldn't have mattered as we had 13 straight days with games, but the postponement of the Marlins games may throw a wrench in that.

It is days. And given that Nate Pearson is coming up tomorrow, it is safe to assume it is now open season on getting the extra year of service time.

I imagine he has made good progress shagging flies in Bowie the last few days so he can be fully MLB ready.

He could be, but they would need to play a game for him to officially be activated.

Believe it or not, I did realize that if the season was canceled/we didn't play for a while/etc. Then that effects Mount's call up. But thanks guys 😂

I think not much longer.

 

Hopefully soon, Stewart is showing me absolutely nothing at the plate or in the field. I think they are going to wait if MLB can get a better handle on the covid situation first tho

One would in a normal season give Stewart the time to right the ship, but this is Bizarro season where 16 teams are making the playoffs.  The Orioles appear to have the makings of a legit lineup with Iglesias, Alberto, Nunez, Ruiz, Santander and Severino all hitting well and Mountcastle would be a big addition to it.  I mean, maybe the Orioles don't want to make the playoffs, but that would be a shame.

I still think Mountcastle belongs at 1B... . . . . .

I really doubt the O's are thinking playoffs this year.  The lineup is shaking out pretty well but they don't really have the pitching.   I guess if it happens it happens.  But if some team really wants Cobb, Elias is not going to think twice even if we are in the hunt.

Mountcastlle should get a chance at both LF and 1B as both those positions are big holes in the lineup.
