ALL TEAMS TOP 30 PLAYERS NOT PROTECTED FOR THE RULE 5

Recommended Posts

Packy Naughton and David Parkinson.  Two LH starters who might be able to stick as relievers.  If the O's go for anything I think it will be something like this.

I WOULD BE KEYING ON SS, 2B, AND 3B IF I MADE A PICK AS THE ORIOLES GM.

 

PLAYERS I FIND INTERESTING LOOK LIKE THEY COULD BE READY AND LESS LIKE A PROJECT.

 

I LIKE THE PIRATES KEVIN KRAMER HE WAS A .280ISH HITTER / .350 OBP/ .460 SLG.

SS OSWALDO PERAZA THE YANKEES #4  HE'S 20 BUT GRADE 60S IN RUN, ARM, FIELD & 45 POWER AND 55 HIT.  BUT HASN'T PLAYED ABOVE A BALL. THIS CONTRADICTS MY PREVIOUS POINT BUT I BELIEVE I WOULD FIND A WAY TO CARRY HIM AS A UTILITY PLAYER TO SWIPE HIM FROM THE YANKEES. HE HAS A CAREER .350 OBP AND .267 AVG.

ROCKIES COLTON WELKER (3B) LOOKS LIKE A POSSIBILITY AT 3B  (60 ARM, 55 FIELD, 50 HIT , 50 POWER)

Peraza appears to be on Yanks' 40-man

Colorado put him on the 40 - he's perhaps Arenado's heir apparent assuming Nolan peaces out.

Welker and Nevin were Hartford's 2019 corners and I think I heard the Yard Goats play-by-play guy hint Nevin may have gotten some 3B reps except for the better prospect there.  I'll be curious to see Renato-style how the club comes at Nevin's "3B" usage next year.

Riley Pint is a guy to look at.  He was one of the best arms in the drafts a few years back and was selected 4th overall. His fastball is ++ pitch and a guy you could stash in the bullpen.  I would expect him to go in this draft and maybe before we get a chance.  The other high upside guy I see is Wander Javier.  He was one of top international signing guys at the time.  He has been often injured though in minors but the tools are there.

Wander has collapsed. He’s been so bad he didn’t get protected. Hard pass. I don’t think Kramer hits well enough to be considered, and his defense isn’t anything. I was interested because we share a name, but no. 
The unprotected ranked prospects offer pretty slim pickin’s, so we will choose someone not on the surface radar.

If I was just listing them in order for who could be top 5 taken now not necessarily all fits for us. There are few other guys that have more upside but are too far down the minors to really consider IMO.

1. Riley Pint.  Rhp The stuff is about as high as your ever going to find in the rule 5 draft.  Fastball curve is back end of bullpen type stuff.  Now where it is going half the time is a different story but you won’t find higher upside in this draft.

2. Wander Javier SS again tools are there but consistent playing time has kept him back missing a bunch of time.  If he can stay healthy and get in reps could be guy that is your SS of future.  I could see Richie Martin type strategy get him through next season as backup middle infielder then send to AA or AAA next year. He is just 21 years old so you have time in minors after if you can get him through this season.

3. Kevin Kramer. utility He is a bit more ready and could probably hold his own as utility type player this year. He is already 27 so he is more what you see will be what you get type guy and not high upside guy.  I don’t see him as a guy that fits in what I would be looking at as terms of rule draft but he still guy I could see getting claimed in it.

4. Jose Soriano rhp another high upside guy with + fastball.  He has been a starter but could be used in pen and try to hide him some, then see what you have in 2-3 years.

5. Brewer Hinklin of He us a former 2 sport player out of college with football and baseball.  He has tools to play corner outfield and can play CF in a pinch but arm is below average. He has good speed and stolen quite a few bases in minors and  decent power but pretty raw and a position we are pretty deep in.

Nice catch ....wow 

 

Did the writer edit the article or did I really make 2 errors in 1 OP? It’s probably me 😜

Wander has fallen more because of health not because the tools are not there.  It is hard to play well when you can’t stay on the field.  He has had just 457 at bats over the last three years.  He missed all of 2018 and first 2 months in 2019.  You can’t expect a guy missing 18 months of baseball to be playing well coming back.  He is a guy that really is hurt by no minor league ball in 2020 too because he would have had his first real off season then spring ball.  So you factor in 2020 he has had just 300 at bats in 3 year span.

That’s fine and true, but the Rays are the best in the biz at developing talent. If they’ve given up on him, it’s fair to think they exhausted all the possibilities first. I think Grenier might not pan out, and Hall is still a couple years off, so if the Os think they see something worthwhile,  Wander certainly has some appeal.

    • Is it clear Nevin starts 2021 in AAA?    His .744 in AA wasn’t overwhelming.  I could see that going either way.   
    • Well, I think it made sense enough to give Davis one season and see if the new regime could fix him.   It probably also made sense to bring him back for the following spring training to see if anything had changed.   I would have cut bait at the end of last spring, but the end of spring training never came and then the shortening of the season and possibility of further shortened seasons changed the calculus.    We’ll never know if the O’s would have cut bait if last season had proceeded as normal.  
    • Elias has the best job in baseball.  He makes great money and has zero expectations to win.     Why would he leave?  He is able to do a lot of what he likes with trades, scouting, international signings, etc....and he can do it while ownership is ok with a 60 win team.  
    • I tend to agree with this. There are a few scenarios that could play out for Elias and Sig. 1. O's remain owned by Angelos, penny pinching is the way of the future - he builds a nice foundation here but leaves when free to and another owner essentially asks him to do the same but also gives him resources. Thinking Philly/San Fran make sense from a market/spending perspective. 2. O's remain owned by Angelos, short term penny pinching linked to Covid - this would allow Elias to stay and be somewhat more financially aggressive likely starting in 2021/2022. It still leaves him in a less than perfect (e.g., not Red Sox/Dodgers) scenario. I could see him deciding to go to a bigger market team when he has that option. 3. O's are sold - everything's on the table at that point. New owner might embrace him and ask him to spend. New owner might want his own guy. Who knows? I really think Elias will be in demand when he's available. I hope whoever owns the O's don't let it get there, but I'd wager they do.
    • Well, that can be said today but it doesn't explain from his hiring up until the start of last season. I don't blame him...I think it comes from above him. I think he's done well working within whatever parameters he has.
    • It would be crazy to release Davis unless they know for an absolute certainty that 162 games will be played this year.
    • I don't know enough to know if this situation is on Elias. If he's doing what ownership directs him to do I guess the blank check can last indefinitely. Not being able to release Davis indicated that he's just here to build his resume.
