Connolly has tweeted that he may have been DFA... He is "checking into it." This, to me, is a head scratcher. I thTnk Simon would be great in the pen.

We need to make room for Gregg. He's bound to bring in a boat load of prospects at the TD. :rolleyestf:

Britt hinted as much in her next tweet

If they deal him they have dealt their best longman option IMO, for whatever that is worth. I would try to see Wada pitch every 5 days, even if it's extended spring training. I know Patton was a starter in the past, so does Phillips make it?

The Braves just picked up Livan and they have a lot of pitching. Simon would definitely get claimed

If he is gone who makes the team in his place? Could they try to do without a true longman at the beginning of the season and take their chances. Maybe they could keep O'Day as well, and send him down if the starters aren't going deep into games. I think Simon has some value myself.

    • Part of the reason Henderson did not play SS primarily is because of who else was on the team.   If Holliday is that great, Henderson can move in 2-3 years or Holliday can start at 2B or 3B.  We should have such problems.
    • I know you are just trying to make a point, but I don't think that Rutschman is far off of being one of the best defensive catchers in baseball.  Mateo is a LONG way from being the best offensive shortstop in baseball.
    • Well of course it did cost Seattle their 1,3, 5 prospects to now be in a position to sign him to this pre free agent deal 
    • I'm keeping an open mind watching Orioles Player Development unfold, but my decision using possibly antiquated thinking is that Gunnar Henderson is NOT a MLB shortstop because the org didn't deploy him there primarily as a minor leaguer. Just write him into 3B and a plum lineup spot as long as you can.    It saves a Jackson Holliday headache in two years to boot.     Urias-Stowers is a nice half of a bench if we block them by getting say somebody like Michael Brantley to take professional at-bats as a primary DH.
    • Again .. a bit of a false equivalency.  The difference is .050 OPS between our proposals.  Now if Elias was going to sign a big bat free agent third baseman I would agree .  I doubt he is.  But i would risk the .050 on the combo of Henderson at 3rd and Mateo at short over Urias (arb eligible in 2024) at 3rd and Gunnar at short.  To take the admitted risk that Mateo hits a bit better.. if not, Gunnar can take over at that point at ss.    But it is a good problem to have and I can see it going your way too. 
    • No, but I think the team will bet the same way I am.  Henderson has the talent to be an above average SS.   We have a lot of infielders in the system who can hit.  There’s no reason to have a defensive only SS.  
    • Back of napkin I guess this is around $24 AAV for  FA years if its judged 1/12 for Arb3 and 4/96 for FA seasons 1.1 years out. Castillo-Ray-Gausman-Berrios-Musgrove are for me kind of a flat basket as Mountcastle-Mancini-Mullins-Hays-Santander were for me as the supporting cast of the early Adley teams. The industry seems to have some consensus what this kind of house is worth.
