Nice escape, greatly aided by the pickoff.    I would not expect to see Akin next inning. 

I wonder if he starts Sunday. Would be on normal rest.

If he does play if might be best if it is at DH.

Bringing to bear my boundless medical ignorance, I would think that if all goes well Trey will mainly be a DH  in  '21, with occasional, less-than-full-game stints at 1B. I wouldn't expect to see him in the OF except as an emergency replacement.

On teams like the Orioles those are the things to try. Nothing to lose. 

Maybe. But I have hair and I am not trying to pull it out. First Base is not such an "easy" position.

I hear you. There is little evidence he will make it as an OF.

I've heard from a reputable source that it's incredibly hard.

This is what I was thinking originally: Little to no innings in the outfield. Forces Mountcastle or somebody to the outfield or (an infielder) off the roster.

I am wholly with you there! But I have no evidence to believe he could be an infielder.

Well we also have no evidence he can be an OF. 

I am more talking in general about being open minded on bad teams trying things out.
