Santander to IL Williams recalled.

Recommended Posts

I though I noticed him pull it on the high fastball late in the game not sure if he was having issues before or just that swing.

I'm not sure there's anything Santander could have done in weeks 7-9 to make me more delighted with his season than perhaps crack a window for Yusniel.

I think his at-bats are going to go to DJ Stewart who is fourth on the team in OBP despite not yet recording a hit.

I think Diaz will be getting some AAA at-bats next year and best case will be up around June 1, past the Super 2 deadline.

Was hoping we would get to see Diaz for 20 games. Seems like a great time to give him a taste but what do I know. Guess it would ruin him for life...

Agreed, probably the pitch where it appeared that he overswung.

Per Roch, Hyde says DJ Stewart will get most of the playing time in RF.

That’s a major downgrade.   

Yep, we'll see either Williams or Stewart in RF most nights now.

Roch says Santander’s done for the year.    Major bummer.   

Darn, probably our team MVP so far and I've enjoyed watching him.

That’s quite a feat in a not totally insignificant number of at bats.

Hard to believe that’s the best we can do.

It's the best they chose to do.

Heck Puig is still out there right?

Sounds like Stewart will get an extended look in RF per Roch

Curious if teams will run on him.

I hope he hits enough to have a bit of a career in the majors.

Stewart's arm has looked fine in a small number of opportunities

    • First off, thank you for admitting that Nunez is incredibly one dimensional and has almost no meaningful value. That's progress, I suppose. Anyway, the Orioles DFA'd Nunez with the intention to release him if no trade offer materialized from the other 29 MLB clubs, and, lo and behold, no trade offer materialized. Literally any other MLB FO could have added him to their roster for a bag of balls but they all decided that they would rather have the bag of balls than Renato Nunez at his projected $2-4 million dollar price tag. When you consider that he doesn't hit for average, doesn't get on base a lot, strikes out a lot, and can't run or field, it's really not too hard to see why. And that's without even getting into his underlying metrics, which as another poster already pointed out, are also pretty mediocre. His hard and weak contract rates in particular paint a rather gloomy long term outlook, and I am sure that Elias and the other 29 FOs were well aware of those things (and much, much more) too if Joe Schmoe fans like us can access that type of data. If all 30 MLB FOs and their analytics departments unanimously agree that a player costs more than he is worth, which is exactly what happened in Renato Nunez's case, I'm afraid I'll have to defer to their judgement over some rando with an axe to grind on a fansite's message board.  The money certainly was a major factor in Nunez's release, which is more understandable than usual in the dismal current economic landscape where legitimately good players like Brad Hand, Kolten Wong, and Charlie Morton had their reasonably priced options declined by currently contending teams, but roster construction, underlying metrics (as mentioned above), and his general mediocrity were also likely considerations.  I would personally much rather have the DH spot regularly available for Mancini, Mountcastle, and Stewart depending on the particular needs of the day anyway, but YMMV.

    • Honestly a pretty sad list after #5 ....Really most think that Wieters underachieved , Britton was called a TOR  that ended up in the pen because of durability, and Arrieta was god awful while he was here. Really, this list describes the drafting and developing failures of the Baltimore Orioles in the 21st century!
    • Waiver claim was how he got here so its not like we're talking about greatness. Maybe this means Mountcastle is moving to 1B or DH. 
    • Now the Yankees: Brett Gardner, 3:29 2005, 42.8 rWAR Austin Jackson, 8:29 2005, 21.9 rWAR Aaron Judge, 1:32 2013, 20.1 rWAR Ian Kennedy, 1:21 2006, 16.7 rWAR (FA comp) David Robertson, 17:28 2006, 15.8 rWAR Tyler Clippard, 9:27 2003, 15.5 rWAR Mark Melancon, 9:28 2006, 11.8 rWAR Dellin Betances, 8:28 2006, 11.2 rWAR Phil Hughes, 1:23 2004, 11.0 rWAR (FA comp) Joba Chamberlain, 1:41 2006, 7.6 rWAR Adam Warren, 4:28 2008, 6.7 rWAR David Phelps, 14:28 2007, 6.1 rWAR George Kontos, 5:28 2006, 3.8 rWAR Shane Greene, 15:24 2009, 3.5 rWAR Jordan Montgomery, 4:17 2014, 3.5 rWAR Jeff Karstens, 19:27 2003, 3.2 rWAR Jake Cave, 6:28 2011, 2.9 rWAR Mike Dunn, 33:28 2004, 2.8 rWAR John Brebbia, 30:28 2011, 2.5 r WAR Caleb Smith, 14:29 2013, 2.5 rWAR Zach McAllister, 3:28 2006, 2.5 rWAR Tommy Kahnle, 5:30 2010, 2.0 rWAR Phil Coke, 26:24 2002, 2.0 rWAR Ben Gamel, 10:29 2010, 1.1 rWAR James Pazos, 13:29 2012, 1.0 rWAR   Total: 25 players, 199.5 rWAR 2000-09: 17 players, 163.9 rWAR 2010-20 8 players, 35.6 rWAR   Not much there,  but then again, they're always drafting low.
    • The discrepancy is even worse when you think about how our draft picks work, with I think two exceptions, far better than theirs. It’s hard to blame one person, because the problem is over so long, but boy somebody is to blame
