ALL TEAMS TOP 30 PLAYERS NOT PROTECTED FOR THE RULE 5

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.

 

Different Wander. This one is with the Twins. I seriously doubt this one is taken by the Orioles. Way too far away, but certainly has tools.

Nice catch ....wow 

 

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

Still a lot of work to make the OP.   It’s not surprising you missed one or two.   Nice job!

I see an Astro that can play infield (3B).  Can't we already send the card to the podium.

Honestly, I think Kramer is the best bet.I don’t think taking a player like Diaz or a player like Santana who hasn’t played above Short season A. 
 

Being forced to keep Davis again leaves the Os short already and taking another player who’s not ready and will likely struggle mightily at the plate doesn’t make sense. 
 

According to MLB.com Santana ranks 45/45/45 in run field and arm. He over performed with the bat early but hit .267 /.337 /.329 in 2019. I can’t see how he would stick.

As for Diaz,  he hit .264/.307/.430 ....He’d likely be worse than Ruiz.

Yammering about the rule five is my favorite part of the off-season. I wonder who we might lose? I don’t think anybody’s going to take Sedlock, and if they do, I highly doubt they would keep him. We’ve already discussed pop, but I wonder if there any guys in the system who are on the radars of other teams?

Unprotected top 30 guys are of course the first place to look, but they are definitely not the only place to look.

17. Tyler Zombro, RHP, Rays

The Rays seem as taken with vertical and horizontal approach angles as any organization in the league. A team wanting in on that sweet, sweet deceptive action could do worse than snatching up Zombro, a lower-slot right-hander who relies on a low-90s sinker and a slider. He seems unlikely to develop into more than a middle-relief type, at best, but he has a track record of success and he appears to be a total pitching nerd, which is always a plus.

I like this guy a bit! Sinking fastball in the low 90s and a good slider.

 

 

************ Also Pop was mentioned! Hope he flies under the radar.****

Have to think if they want a position player that would have to be their first pick. Two arms or one arm/ one MI or 3B.  
 

Side note. This has got to be long week for Moose. I’m sure he can barely sleep waiting to see who we take on Thursday.

You really need to take into account that the Eastern League was extremely pitcher-friendly in 2019 - the average slash line there was .238/.311/.366.    There is little doubt in my mind that Diaz will be a better major league hitter than Ruiz.    That doesn’t mean that I don’t want to see him perform in AAA, however.

Kevin Kramer might be a good option //// He's a .286/.357/.429 hitter in the minors. He really hasn't gotten a shot in the majors (79 ABs in 2 seasons). Also they have been playing him all over. He looks like he could handle 2B or 3B....Not sure about SS

Thanks ..... Yeah the only thing I usually take into consideration is the PCL. I'd take him for upside over playing someone like Sanchez

Sedlock was a former highly-ranked prospect and a rare college arm with little exposure and therefore substantial development needs. He’s been fairly mediocre but perhaps focusing on just his fastball and one breaking pitch will help. That’s going to be a common theme here — Little had his comeback from injury interrupted by the pandemic and has non-horrible command. Dibrell was horrendous when moving up to Double-A but decent before, could be a junkball reliever. Parkinson is a guy in the Sean Gilmartin vein but has done it as a starter so far, not exactly a prototypical relief candidate.

Relief-y guy
