On Santander: "We want to see if he’s a good-looking young outfielder. If he’s unable to make it physically, then we’ll probably put him on the disabled list."

On Verrett : "He was better today. Command still has been a little off, but he’s kind of had a track record of that, something he’s got to get better at that if he’s going to play a role for us.”

On Seth Smith's hamstring: “They’re really wanting to get this all the way out,”

Sounds like Santander is staying. Good to hear. i really could care less about Gentry or Bourne (or Alvarez), sad to say. i think Rickard should be the 4th OF and should be able to handle more ABs against RH.

You left off the best part.

 

“Better,” Showalter said. “He stepped up. It’s that time of the year. He was 90-94 mph today. It’s that time of the year. They’re releasing the hounds. He was better today. Command still has been a little off, but he’s kind of had a track record of that, something he’s got to get better at that if he’s going to play a role for us.”

Long enough to evaluate him defensively in the OF:)

Buck answered that too in the article. "Down to the wire." Most likely both Rule 5 picks fates won't be decided til whatever the deadline for the 25 man is. Last Sunday at 4:00pm.

 

 

Manager Buck Showalter indicated that Rule 5 picks Aneury Tavárez and Anthony Santander will come down to the wire. Santander hasn’t been available since undergoing an MRI arthrogram on his right elbow.

“Trying to see if we can get Santander back on the field, see if we can get a look at him,” Showalter said. “He’s a good-looking young hitter. We want to see if he’s a good-looking young outfielder. If he’s unable to make it physically, then we’ll probably put him on the disabled list.

“Tavárez has done some good things, too. They’re two good picks. See how it shakes out.”

But someone just told me no way Santander is on the DL:)

Don't know who told you that, but it wasn't me. What I said was that if he's ready to play defensively "a few days" from the MRA, it might prevent them from putting him on the 10-day DL to start the season. You can't, under the rules, just do it because you're not finished evaluating someone. Cleveland wasn't happy about losing him in the first place. If they think the Orioles are gaming the system, you can bet they'll lodge a complaint.

And, by the way, nothing Buck said conflicts with what I said. He said they'd put him on the DL "if he's unable to go physically." What I said was that if he is able to go physically, they might have difficulty DL-ing him.

If he's unable to play in the OF before the end of ST, isn't that the definition of injured?

I have hashed this out already lol.

He thinks we are being unethical by putting him on the DL. Normally I would say yes with the O's but in this particular case, a DL stint with rehab assignment makes sense and I believe 100% warranted.

And what I believe he is missing (and probably a flaw in the system) is Rule 5 guys much rather draw a major league salary then go back to low A ball.

It's a shoulder elbow issue. If he cant get up to full arm strength then he can be on the DL.


This. Throwing. I think the braintrust thinks he can play "outfield" fine.They just need to know his arm is still there. If he can't play right, only left... we might as well let him go anyways.

As long as it isn't the "Pedro Alvarez" definition of being unable to play the outfield. 

And Pedro signed a MiL contract. Opt out not til end of April, early May. I cant' remember the date. "Pete" is going along willingly, but if he wasn't willing.... they could send him down against his will and he can't do a thing. Til that opt out date.

 

Can't do that with either Rule 5.

No doubt either would rather the ML salary. What Moondoggie is arguing (I think) is that Cleveland will argue the DL-ing. The thing we forget... is Cleveland has BETTER medical records, knows exactly what surgery he had. Better than we have. They know the hazards AND the concerns we have. IANAD, nor a lawyer, but Cleveland doesn't have a leg to stand on.

    • I went to the game as part of a fundraiser for my daughter's school, so I was happy to go.  But it was not fun to watch.  But I need to know from others if it seemed like the Brewers were being a little showboaty or sort of in your face-ish.  One instance in particular makes me ask, before the benches cleared, was in maybe the 4th or 5th inning, the Brewers struck out an Oriole batter on a close pitch with the batter sort of standing stunned in the box when their catcher pops up, bounded a couple leaps in the air (edit - toward his bench) and hurled the ball into the upper deck.  The batter was still in the box.  It all happened fast, but I was kind of stunned.  I haven't seen anything like that. I'm sorry on not having better details our seats were in 81 under cover with no vantage point of the Jumbotron. lol  and other than the phone I had trouble following who was up or any other info about the game in the midst of my daughter talking my ear off the whole time which was, admittedly, the whole reason for going to the game in the first place.  Good night out, terrible game.
    • I’m unclear how the plan to stretch him out would work. 
    • All you say/propose could be correct. But I struggle to see the problem/issue. All players at the professional level are independent contractors at the end of the day. Yes, they want to win and are hyper competitive, but they also want to get paid. He is one year away from receiving generational transforming money and he knows that his performance will determine that. When it comes to him viewing the Orioles as an oasis in a desert, why would he do that? He’s coming from a winning/successful organization and going to another. The Orioles have not done anything on the field (during his tenure as a pro) that is any better than the Brewers. We HOPE that they get there, but they have a long way to go.
    • The OnlyoneOriole advice column would be a sensation. Who wants to start a thread?
    • I do think front offices generally are trying to get more innings from big relief arms, looking at what the Giants are doing with Jordan Hicks, or even the Brewers with DL Hall. I believe the Sigbots seeing so many Arms that can be good once through the order is some of how/why the SP5 role isn't as prominent anymore.    SP5 does have more pre-trade deadline importance as the middle-tier Clubs see who is and is not having a good season any given year. Akin has been so good so far I'm sure he'll get expanded opportunities for more innings if he keeps throwing well.    He'd be an interesting Opener against a lineup with some strong left handed bats, and after last night looking for ways to ease things up for Tyler Wells may be helpful.
    • Sometimes we need to tip our hat to the other team.  We weren't hitting or pitching.  They were. People under-estimate Peralta as "just" a 5 and diver. MIL is a good team.  Ortiz looks like he could be an answer to one of their holes.  Chourio having a ROY start.  And Yelich is a competitor.  Hoskins > Tellez.  Other than the long-term decision of cashing out on Burnes, they made some good moves this off-season.
    • Is that reaching for the line drives back up the middle?
