Orioles claim and option Brooks Kriske

Recommended Posts

He'll be 28 to start next season and has been blown up in his 12 MLB games. Decent numbers in the minors, but I would be surprised if he survives the off-season 40-man roster shuffle. Could see a few appearances over these last two and a half weeks though.

I'd love to hear why we claimed this guy but not Enyel De Los Santos.

Clearly they like Kriske better. Does have higher K rates in the lower levels of the minors, but never started a game.

Well, it's clear they liked him better because they claimed him and not De Los Santos.  But the latter is a couple years younger and has just converted from a starter to a RP.  Perhaps there's some unknown upside to be had there.  Yes, Kriske has the higher K rate but De Los Santos is no slouch in that department.  I'd just like to hear Elias' rationale.

Did De Los Santos have an option year remaining?
