Felix Bautista 2021

He's a no-brainer for me. He actually doesn't throw a ton of non competitive pitches so although his walk rates are high, it's mostly from batters taking close pitches that they don't swing at because they know they can't hit him. 

If not for the potential work stoppage, he should be pitching in the major leagues now. I still would like to get him used to the major league all in AAA. Not sure what the hold up there is unless their algorithm is holding him back because of his strike percentage.

I think you already know that he is in AAA getting used to the ML ball.

He’s had some rough outings in AAA so far. 

He really just had the one real bad outing.  Seems to be back on track.  I'm starting to envision a power arm packed bullpen at some point next year with Bautista, Burdi, Scott, T. Wells, Bradish, and Peralta.

I hope so, but that’s a lot of inconsistent milb careers that all have to come together at once. I’m a big fan of trading “non elite” bullpen pieces at peak value. I’m sure the Fry implosion hurt Elias a bit. Maybe we could get something for Sulser in the offseason. 
 

Plus it’s pointless to protect current “non elite” relievers and risk losing relievers of the same ilk, that are cheaper/younger, in the Rule 5.

I mostly agree with you about Fry but this team is dead last in ERA again by a pretty decent margin. If you don't get who you want for him, you keep him and try to stabilize the bullpen next year. His implosion came outta nowhere. The guy didn't give up an extra basehit until August 16th. Pretty bizarre year for him.

I agree. Fry has promise, but we’re never going to have a productive bullpen until we have some semblance of a rotation. Until then, any reliever that has any value , should be dealt immediately.

Do you think the O's are going to protect Burdi from the Rule 5?

He's on the 40 man roster so he's protected unless they release him.  Guess it depends on how he looks this month.

There are bunch of guys on the 40 that may be coming off  IMO.   Abad, Burdi, Ellis, Greene, Matt Harvey, Dustin Knight, Lakins, Mattson, Wade, Watkins, Wynns,  Bannon, Gutierrez, Martin,  and Diaz all have to be in that conversation.

Agreed that all of those are possibilities.  Some more likely than others.

Well he is currently on pace to give up 0 ER this month so that's not too bad.  ;)

lol. He reportedly can touch 100 mph.  If he looks decent, they'll keep him on the 40 man.

I also think that not too many of those/if any would be claimed through a DFA. Also Severino DFAd and Mancini traded. 
 

I don’t think the 40 man crunch will be so bad this offseason.

He doesn't touch 100, he can sit 100 on certain days. His fastball is the best on the system velocity wise. there is a little doubt he's going to be protected from the rule 5 because he would absolutely be taken.

    • Oh, absolutely.   The O’s were leading the division by six games when this news broke.   It stung pretty badly to lose Manny in that situation.   As it turns out, the team played well without him for the rest of the regular season.   But we’ll always wonder if he could have made a difference in that KC series, if he’d managed to rehab and return to the field.     Some posters faulted him for not acceding to the team’s wishes.   Not me though.  
    • Win 3 Cy Youngs, 3 World Series and a WS game in 3 decades and you can be as arrogant as you want.   Palmer rules.
    • So trade our best performing position player in order to get prospects that don’t usually pan out… i.e Machado deal  Pass 
    • I think the Orioles wanted Manny for the playoffs.  In a noncompetitive season they may have had a different view.
    • There were some aspects of the Manny knee situation I’d forgotten.   In particular, when Manny shut down and had surgery on the second knee, that wasn’t what the team wanted him to do.   "Our original approach was to have him rest and then to try to play and then see if he could play ball. We also knew there was a chance of a recurrence. Given this injury and the time of the season, we thought that we would rest it and try to recover and come back and play for the rest of the year. But Manny didn't feel that was the best option." (This quote from Duquette was in a post by weams without a link.).   It also seems that Manny had the option of “rest and rehab” with the first knee and opted for surgery.    Here’s a link to the weams post, which is in a very long thread on this topic.   https://forum.orioleshangout.com/forums/index.php?/topic/17946-manny-machado-expected-to-have-surgery-on-knee-within-a-week/page/35/#comments Anyway, I’d say Manny really did the opposite of what Tatis is doing, i.e., favoring surgery over rest and rehab.    
    • The thing about Adam Is that he comes across as genuine. He’s not one of these arrogant jerks like “well, you remember that I never gave up a grand slam” Palmer who reminds us every single chance he gets, and shares memories like a king distributes largesse. Adam is just a guy telling stories. I wonder how he’d be as a broadcaster?
