Orioles acquire SS Isaac DeLeon and OF Mishael Deson to complete the Bleier and Givens trades

Recommended Posts

Going off of very little information here but it looks like the O's didn't get an actual prospect for Bleier.  I would have been surprised if they had.

But great for Bleier he ended up on a possible playoff team that has a decent shot at advancing if they do make it.

Not too much out on him. Couldn't find his signing bonus but I did see where he was listed without a signing bonus when all bonus' over 200K were listed. 

6-2, 170 and played at 17 years old in 2019 where he showed good plate discipline. Plays SS so he's probably athletic. About what I would expected for Bleier. Basically a low-end lottery ticket.

They’ve never lost a playoff series.

I think there were six players that we’going to be named later.

I appreciate that Richard did not have that much value, but I do hope that the other five are a little bit more exciting.

Meanwhile, every good thing to Richard, I swear he always looks like a secondary character from the Dick Van Dyke show.

The power tool is a hard one to measure on the stats of a 17 year old.  Its all about projection.  6'2' 170 can turn into 6'3' 210 by the time he is 23.  His OBP is great; more BB's than K's. Also 5 HBPs.  Seems like he has decent discipline and contact rate.  Made 18 errors, but that's not uncommon at this age and level.  Couldn't find any film on him.

By two.

It was 38 to 36.

That’s still good.   It’s a league where the average K/BB is 1.8.   Lots of walks in that league, so his BB rate is very high for real baseball but just slightly above average for the DSL.   13.3% K rate in a league where 20.5% is average.    Pretty much a league average hitter overall.    Kind of a yawn but he could develop.

    • There is definitely something to be said to waiting a year. If he has a healthy 2021, I would say he will be a 2-3 WAR player.  That should make him more valuable than he is now and that certainly could be part of the thinking. My only issue with that is his injury history.  I’m willing to gamble that we can get 75-80 cents on the dollar now (compared to what a healthy 2021 could bring us) vs waiting.
    • You'll get Eshelman and you'll like it.
    • Makes the games interesting at least. I think O's ownership could throw the fans a bone and try and add a few good players. Top draft picks are nice but I really hope this is the last "burn it to the ground" season. 
    • You never know when the Jays will just stop spending.  Remember when they had a team in contention and their corporate ownership just flatly refused to add any payroll for the stretch run?
    • The Jays had a payroll as high as $182 mm as recently as 2016, but they’d cut it all the way to $64 mm in 2019.    They were projected at $76 mm last year before the pandemic.     Obviously, they have a lot of room to increase payroll.    Like the O’s, they’ve been clipping coupons for a couple of years.    But they are a little ahead of us on the development curve with the ascendance of their second generation major leaguers (Biggio, Bichette and Guerrero).    It’s a logical time for them to add some free agents.     
    • I don’t really think this applies to Baumann anyway.   It’s not like this guy spent a year at AAA and excelled there.   He had a really good half season at AA in 2019 and then had to be shut down early at the alternate site this year.   Sure some guys like that can jump straight to the majors, but honestly I’d just make sure he’s healthy, let him start the year in AAA and consider moving him up if he’s pitching well there.   I’d probably be advocating that even if the service time issue didn’t exist, but the service time issue makes that a pretty easy call IMO.   I don’t consider it to be holding him back to test him at a level of the minors where he’s never pitched before.
