And it seems that we are sending cash back? I wonder how much of Galvis’ salary we are paying in order to get this guy? Elias must be really high on him.

You had me at "really high"

A little sarcasm, but on Burch's high A team there are nine pitchers with 12+ K/9, and the team is 33-41.  Used to be if you had Burch's K rate and K:BB ratio you were on the fast track to the majors, on the cover of Baseball America.  Now I don't even know if he's a prospect.

I saw his #s and was impressed.  Someone (I think FRobby) made a comment about his k% being slightly above league avg-ish.   It made me pause and look.  Unreal how fast the game has changed.  When does the  Pendulum swing back?  Seems we are at an unsustainable extreme.

Don't worry, at some point it will get so bad, Elias will bring Stevie back up.

You don't have to tonight!   Valaika is starting.   Guess it's a platoon, Pat vs lefties and Domingo vs righties.

Thanks to both of you. I feel so much better.

I'll take either one over Leyba. I'd like to see Richie Martin get back and have some time at SS before his next injury, with Urias at second, where I think he might be OK.

Galvis had a salary escalator activated by trade, if I remember correctly. Good for him. 

Right. That was a part of his original contract with the O's.

I had quite a good salary escalator once, but got off on the third floor and took the stairs down. Happier now in a dicey neighborhood reading obscure books.

Galvis wasn’t here long enough to warrant an appreciation thread, I guess, but I did enjoy his brief time here.   He met or exceeded expectations and did so cheaply.   I kind of like the looks of Burch.   If he ever sees an inning of major league play, that’ll be one more benefit we got from the Galvis signing.

We essentially got a prospect for nothing. Galvis was a throw away here. Nice job

Other teams did better in this respect, taking players signed last off season and turning them into prospect value.

Pirates with Tyler Anderson

Cubs with Jake Marisnick

Hard to split out value (with Gomes included), but arguable the Nationals with Harrison and certainly their Schwarber deal which netted a nice Boston prpspect.

Schwarber signed an 11.5M deal with the Nats.

I would think that Burch's 15.2 K/9 IP is more than slightly above the league average, even if it's 12-something as Drungo mentioned. I wonder what types of pitches he relies on for the Ks.

    • He only pitched 31 innings. How impressive could he be. I’d say this was another lost season for Hall. 
    • I think it’s the right move. He excelled in this role until late in the season. They tried to force Lopez into being a SP for so long until they finally realized what he does best. But, that may have been more out of necessity. 
    • All good points.  I guess we will see.
    • I think he starts at Aberdeen as well but that's a poor move.  He has no business being in A ball at his age if he is as advanced as they have let us to believe.  He's going to go to Aberdeen and struggle to hit for power and have a good BA and OBP.  He will basically be the same player we saw in Delmarva playing against similar competition (i.e., the guys he faced in low A will not be in high A).  Just put him in Bowie and let him go.  Keep him there for the first half of the season and see what happens next.
    • The O's have Henderson, Westburg, Norby, Ortiz and Hernaiz in the middle infield. Vavra in theory too. Mullins, Hays, Santander, Stowers, Neustrom, Cowser, Kjerstad and some of the recent draftees in the OF.  You can see where the trades are going to come from. Some real talent here. As to your point, yes, Norby can hit. He's a hell of a prospect who shouldn't fall far down Tony's list. Notice that in the last power rankings he's above Westburg. People are sleeping on this kid a bit. They shouldn't.
    • I think they know right now that Baumann is likely to be a reliever but that they will try him as a starter. You are ignoring too many things though: 1) They cut back on Wells' innings.  He was pitching multiple innings early on but they made him a 1 inning guy.  That isn't really an indication that they are going to extend him the next year. 2) He hasn't pitched starter innings since 2018.  That's a long time ago.   3) Baumann, coming off an elbow injury, was still kept as a starter and was Brought up to the majors to start.  They didn't put him in the pen.  They didn't reduce his innings as the year went on.   These are all signs that point to Wells as a reliever being close to set in stone.  I agree that he should be given a chance to start but the obviously the Os feel differently.  I mean, there is literally not one shred of evidence out there that says the O's believe in him as a starter.
    • If he develops into a guy who can play a good LF, hit lots of line drives in the gaps, get on base and run well then he doesn’t really need to hit a lot of home runs to be a success. Sounds like a future 1/2 hitter to me. Let Mayo drive him in
