Any chance that the O’s are in on Ha-Seong Kim

On Iglesias, is there any hurry to exercise the option? I'd figure you usually wait on that stuff until you have to act just in case something else comes up.

That’s what I assumed as well. When is the deadline to excercise it, and have other clubs already announced any options they’ve picked up?

Usually it’s a few days after the World Series ends.

To be clear, I agree with the above post, but...

If the O's have scouts/metrics on this guy, and if those scouts/metrics project much better results than Drungo's back of the envelope projections, and if ownership really does support Elias' rebuild plan, then I could see Elias thinking now is a decent time to go after this player. Basically 1 year earlier than ideal, IMO.

I get the argument that it's early in the rebuild. I'm not sure I agree with anyone who says we shouldn't because have other guys in the system, just because those guys seem pretty far away, which means their risks are still high. 

So I also don't think it'll happen, but I actually think there is a small chance it does.

But. Money.

I wouldn't exercise the option until pretty much the last minute. What if he falls down the stairs, rips up the ligaments in his leg and is a giant question mark for next year? Unlikely, but why gamble with 3 million dollars any more than you have to?
