Final cuts

Soon Hardy and Davis come back, so who goes? Webb and ?? This is going to be very interesting. Trading Matusz seemed like an obvious move, but that's not done yet so who knows.

And I completely forgot about Paredes. Does he have any options left? If not, that might mean Flaherty gets the short straw- I don't see Cabrera going anywhere.

I think Paredes is out of options, so he's probably gone. Too bad, that kid can rake.

Looks like after the opener Webb gets DFA'd or Gausman get optioned.

Has to be. Unless the Orioles are in a blowout tomorrow and one of out pitchers has a "sore arm", after the game for a DL stint.

All of this talk about Lavarnway, wonder if Wieters is progressing well?

Not a huge deal if a pitcher is removed for Davis after one game. I'm thinking the O's kept Webb as it might be easier to sneak him through waivers after Davis is back. Wouldn't read to much into having 14 pitchers on Opening Day. Now if Davis comes back and we still a have 14 pitchers afterwards, I'm right there with ya.

I doubt Webb is if he is let go stays here and goes to the minors. He would want a fresh start. I bet a team would find a MLB spot for him right away, they just didn't want to pay him his salary.

Assigning Lavarnway to the minors and keeping Clevenger was a smart move. There is hardly any difference in the two guys ability. This way Clevenger can be optioned when Wieters is ready.

I agree but all the inside talk was Lavarnway was staying, I didn't get that.

I think they would prefer he was claimed to get out from his salary.

And I was being sarcastic in general with that statement about extra pitchers. I get the roster manipulation.

When Davis comes back, one of the pitchers goes. It would not surprise me to see Gausman optioned to start regularly. We don't need a fifth starter much in the beginning, much less a sixth. When Hardy comes off the DL, either Flaherty or Cabrera goes down, both have options. When Paredes comes off, then it gets more tricky. Perhaps we lose another pitcher then.

I would hope we lose the 13th pitcher much sooner than later. The decisions that needed to be made today still loom. Matusz and or Webb traded or DFA. Or Gausman to AAA.

That still doesn't make sense to me. There aren't revocable waivers this time of year. If he cleared waivers he was off the roster. So it seems erroneous.

The team can't revoke the player being claimed, he wasn't. Manny Ramirez cleared waivers in the off season years ago while still in Boston. Webb was never released.
