Grayson Rodriguez 2021

Grayson pitched 5 innings tonight, allowing 2 hits, 1 run, 6 strikeouts, 1 walk.

He did not start the 6th inning despite having only thrown 76 pitches.

That’s annoying.  If he can throw 89 pitches a few starts ago and 82 in his last start, he certainly should have been able to start the 6th.

We’re saving him for our pennant run. 

The Rays perhaps are with Baz - hadn't seen any injury blurbs on him but looked at his Game Log after the quiet lately, and the last month and a half he has only pitched on 7/15 and 8/15.

I am curious to see how the org lands Rodriguez's year.   Will he get to October 3rd, some 100-ish pitch leeway in his final turns, both or neither?

Has anyone seen evidence that this type of tight rein on his pitch counts serves to reduce injury risk?

That would be the only reason to pitch him like this right?  Reducing injury risk?

We have Grayson Rodriguez following the same MLB Pitch Smart guidelines my team followed... though it was a 13/14 team.

No one is advocating for Grayson to go 100+ pitches, but they can't let him go up to 90 pitches when he is cruising during a game.

Why do you think they are keeping a tight rein on him?  Gotta figure they have their reasons and there's something mathematical or scientific behind those reasons.

I think they are trying to avoid injury.

I don't think there is a magic formula to keep them healthy.

I don't think anyone, including Elias, thinks there is a magic formula.  I think they believe there is a formula which may increase the chances of keeping them healthy.

How would say the Elias formula is working out this year?

I haven't given it much thought.  Don't really know.  I put this back into your big category of what I call nit picking.  If you didn't have something to complain about you wouldn't be happy.  As for me, if Elias and company want to limit innings of pitchers and slow play promotions,  no biggy!

I think the way he is being handled is going to impact his availability when he reaches the majors.  I don't think that is a nit pick.

    • The Os don’t need a 40 man spot right now.  
    • Agree with all of this.  I think Tony has Gunner here. Agree on Hall as well.  I had him above Rodriguez for a long time, but just due to the fact that Rodriguez has been healthy I bumped him above.  A lot of risk with Hall for sure, but the upside there is perennial CY contender if he can harness everything.
    • I really have no idea where Kjerstad should be ranked.  I’m guessing that the next 2 are Hall and Westburg. At that point, you have Stowers, Norby and Kjerstad, along with guys like Pinto, Baumann and Bradish.  (Not to mention, a guy like Basillo) I would guess Kjerstad gets into the top 10.
    • I’m going to stick with the idea that Hall was ranked lower than 5th last year and after being hurt, he didn’t play enough to jump up the list. I think Hall will be 6th.  Im going Gunnar here. Quite frankly, a healthy Hall has a case to be #2 but we need to see it first.
    • I don’t quite understand the concern over Mayo’s size, and why some folks believe that will keep him from sticking at 3rd base. He’s listed at 6’5” / 215lbs. I believe that’s an inch taller and about ten pounds heavier than Cal Ripken Jr. was when he was a rookie at 3rd in 1982. Cal’s size never seemed an impediment to him defensively while he was at 3rd, and it certainly didn’t appear to hurt him when he moved to the more demanding position at SS.    Right now Austin Riley is playing pretty good 3rd base for the Braves, and he’s listed at 6’3” / 240lbs. If somebody his size can stick there for a World Series contender why can’t Mayo do the same for us? 
    • I think we can pretty safely rule out Baumann and Kjerstad here Honestly, I could see the case for Hall, Henderson or Westburg. Tony has had Henderson ahead of Westburg pretty much all year, so I'm going to eliminate Westburg. Game then becomes which hurts the guy more in Tony's eyes? Hall being injured for most of the year or Westburg's poor defense. If I could have only one of these guys in the system, I'd pick Hall because the upside is tantalizing and we really need starting pitching. I'm going to guess Tony feels the same, but I still have a strong hunch it's Henderson. Going with "Disabled List" Hall here.
    • Good write up. Looking forward to (hopefully) seeing him pitch in the big leagues in 2022. Back in the day the Orioles always broke their young starters in as long relief specialists, and I’m wondering if that might be the best role for G-Rod when he’s eventually promoted to the majors. Give him 50-60 pitches in a blowout once or twice a week. They would be low pressure innings where he could find his footing without having to worry about wins and losses. If I remember correctly that’s how Flanagan, McGregor, Boddicker, Ben McDonald, and maybe even Wayne Garland saw their first big league action. I’d certainly rather watch a kid like Rodriguez in that spot this coming season than a 29 or 30 year old journeyman who’s on his fifth team in six years.
