Ty Blach released, player pool at 59

Good to know. Not sure whether the Orioles save the $400 a week or not. Regardless getting the extra slot on the player pool was likely the motivating factor as they are paying all of their minor leaguers $400 a week, not just those in the player pool.

I think in order to release an injured player, they must come to a settlement, I am almost positive they are on the hook for his TJ recovery.

I didn’t know that second part, but good to know. But to the comment made about this not being a money move, it wouldn’t have killed them to throw the dude on the 40-man and send him to the restricted list. They could’ve designated him after the season, but my guess is he’s thrown his last pitch for Baltimore.

Just for example, this tweet would indicate that there is an active minor league disabled list.

I think author was just digging with it.

His medical care is on the Orioles. That's usually about it for someone not on the 40 man roster. Or on a major league contract. Which I think is the important thing.

Is this to make room for Jorge Lopez?

No, they added him to get to 60 yesterday.   Now back to 59.

That's what I was wondering. This is kind of cold, releasing a guy when he's down. But I assumed the rest of his med bills (all the rehab) will be covered by the O's. Certainly the surgery itself already IS on the O's tab.

No

Not to make room FOR Lopez (we were 59 of 60) but to make room AFTER Lopez. We're back at 59 of 60 now.

Has Dilson Herrera been added ? He should be on the 28 man. Adds more offense and can play infield or outfield.

Herrera is not of the 40 man roster.  He probably needs someone to get injured to get a shot at the majors.

On the 60.   Not on the 40 (which is full at the moment) or obviously the 28.
