Orioles Agree to Deal With Severino

Recommended Posts

I like the resigning of Severino.  Plus it can't hurt to have a little more offensive production from the catcher spot, considering the bats of the people we'll be running out to play middle infield next year...

Agreed. Catcher is a position a lot of potential contenders look to bolster at the deadline, particularly because you typically need two of them. 

We may be able to trade him, but unless he has an atypically strong year, I wouldn’t expect much in return.   Less than we just got for Iglesias, for example.  JMO.

I would happily trade Severino for  either 1 of the players we got for Iglesias.

Didn't Iglesias just have an atypical strong year (with the bat)?.   Just saying.   Severino is 27, I believe, and he had a strong start last year.   He's capable of putting up a good 2-3 months.

Going by memory, but he seems to be streaky. Might be the type of guy to get hot at just the right time for a trade.

Not sure I’m following your point.   Iglesias is an established veteran and I’m quite sure the Angels did not acquire him thinking he was a .373 hitter or even a .300 hitter.   Severino is still developing and if he were to post a .780+ OPS for a few months, some team might interpret that as actual improvement rather than an SSS anomaly.

Well let’s hope we find a team dumb enough to believe that!  :)

It wouldn't be horribly inconsistent with the .740 and .710 he posted in 2019 and 2020, respectively, either - at a position where the league-wide split is below .700

If Iglesias had hit .220 with a .620 OPS, I'm not sure the Orioles would have re-signed him for 3.5M and gotten what they did, SSS or not.   What he did with the Orioles helped his value, IMO.    You are correct, that any hot streak by Severino could have a greater effect on his value as some teams might believe he's turned the corner or the light bulb has come on.     The Angels didn't acquire Iglesias thinking he's a .373 hitter but I think what he did last season certainly makes them more confident in what they are getting.

I think it’s definitely possible that what he did in 2020 shows that 2019 may not have been a fluke and for the small price they paid to find out, why not?

If you are Elias, would you dangle Severino to the Rockies? They non tendered the “beloved by everyone who watches baseball” Tony Wolters, who was their starter. They have 2 catchers in the 40 and Sevy would be an immediate upgrade to both.

His offense would probably get a big boost in Colorado and he shouldn’t have to worry about defense much, since pitches don’t break anyway there. 

I don’t know anything about the Rockies system, so not sure what a decent pick up would be.

He is so streaky that when he is in his funk he will be worse than the MIF we run out there.

I would dangle him to anyone whi would take him. I didn't want him back at any cost let alone 1.8M
