Right, but Stewart and Mullins get fewer AB's with Hays and Santander starting. Also, all 3 bats you have listed are RH. I'm not arguing the point that Nunez offers some level of relatively cheap production. He does. It's just that what he currently offers doesn't hold a lot of value. My only concern, voiced by Frobby, is that a player, at 26, and after 2 years, may have another level in him. The Orioles obvious don't feel that way about Nunez. If Nunez is what he is, I have no problem giving his AB's to Stewart and Mullins. If he has no trade value at all, then I can live with releasing him and saving 1.5M, or the difference between him and someone making the minimum.
Mayo says "If you told me (Adley) would be in Baltimore by the All Star break, I would have no trouble believing that."
And Steve Melewski says Elias has indicated that Adley will begin the season at AA.
I have not heard either of this things before.
I’d let Severino walk and draft PJ Higgins from the Cubs. Plus arm, solid defensive catcher, developing bat, flexibility to play a couple other positions including 3B.
