Shuffling 4A arms to keep the bullpen fresh.

I'd hate to see how they would perform if they were fatigued.

 

This is so much better than the old days in which the team would bring up exciting young players to get them some ML experience and perhaps give them a good stepping off point for the offseason.

The “only 2 players” call up restrictions hurt that.

Seems like our AAAA guys get tired after pitching an inning or two. Of course, in some cases that inning or two might involve 40 or 50 pitches, after Hyde has had them warm up three or four times.

Kriske has great K rates in the minors.  He was destroyed in his short time on the Yankees roster

I haven’t checked, but I think we’ve had several guys who”….has great K rates in the minors,” and come up here and got whammed. I would much rather have a guy with an average K rate, who doesn’t walk anyone. 
 

yeah, yeah, we’ve had some of those guys and they also got whammed, but still…

Which is why Elias didn't do it in 2019?

I’ll have to double check, but wasn’t that a year where they didn’t have anyone “young and exciting” to call up and instead had a returning Trumbo, Scott, Kline, etc, plus there was still the question about the Arizona Fall League and whether players on the 40 would be eligible or not due to the early start?

I was beating the drum pretty hard for Mountcastle to come up and get some time in the outfield.

Why is Eshelman up? He’s terrible. Watkins is better and he’s fresh too, having thrown two clean innings on Friday. 

They are both bad, but Watkins is coming off a decent bullpen outing. Perhaps he does have a sore arm because Eshelman has pitched to the tune of 7.80 ERA at Norfolk. I can’t think of any other reason for swapping the two.

So when does Ryan Ripken get called up?

When the Giants call him up.

    • 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?
    • I'm 45 minutes in.  It's a good interview. I love Adam Jones as much as anyone else.  But he's about 10 years away from being a guy doing commentary on a broadcast and annoying the hell out of the audience like Joe Morgan, Tim McCarver, etc with the "back in my day" type of attitude.
    • Adam will always be one of my favorite Orioles. I wonder who our next Adam Jones will be. Not only from a performance standpoint but from being outspoken and keeping it 💯.
    • There was definitely reporting that the defect was congenital and, I believe, present in both knees.   I don’t remember if the “when, not if” discussion was a reported opinion of doctors, or board speculation.   And, I don’t know if a doctor would recommend preemptive surgery even if the doctor thought the other knee would blow eventually.   The Tatis situation really does seem like wishful thinking on his part.   Five dislocations in one season?   I doubt exercises are going to fix that.   I remember Chris Webber had a problem with recurring shoulder dislocations and tried to avoid the knife but eventually had to do the surgery.
