Drake, D Alvarez, Asher

I don't think Tararez is in danger of being dropped.

Santander will be on the DL until July. JMO

Interesting. What makes you think July?

I am not 100% certain Tarvarez is a lock, he does seem likely at this point though.

The O's are going to strengthen Santanders shoulder in Sarasota until June 10th.  Then put him on rehab for 20 days.  They will have to make a decision July 1st because that is when there are 90 days left in the season.  They need him on the 25 man roster for 90 day to keep him.

The O's can go with 11 pitchers until May 3rd.  There will be injuries but if they aren't timely enough to keep Tavarez the O's will be evaluating whether to use Rickard's option or not.   The month of April will be a trial for all the outfielder except  Adam.

Thank you sir!

This isn't entirely accurate. If Santander finished the season with fewer than 90 days on the active roster he wouldn't have to be offered back, he would merely be subject to Rule 5 rules at the beginning of 2018 (that is, he would have to stay in the Majors) until he reaches a total of 90 days between 2017 and 2018 on the active roster.

Not to say that this is a likely outcome, but just for accuracy sake, I thought I should point this out.

I think Drake is as good as gone...Tavarez seems like a wash at this point as well...with Smith and Kim on the roster I just don't know how many part time left handed out fielders this roster can fit. 

Alvarez seems like a safe bet to clear waivers so I could see them making that move.

I agree with you on Tavarez but we are in the minority. His speed is a big plus, his d is not plus though.

Good guess, if they can get away with holding Santander back that long.   That's pretty much what they did with Michael Almanzar -- he started his rehab assignment on June 20 and we offered him back to the Red Sox on July 1.

You were right on Drake.

As I posted in the Drake thread...

 

Yeah-Roch (great guy) tried to create some suspense in his most recent blog post but must of us knew Drake was nothing special. I am a Drake fan, but after such a bad ST performance, nobody was going to claim him. He isn't a long guy, so a backend guy with an 8+ ERA ain't cutting it...

Glad we could keep him for depth, but wouldn't be shocked to see him traded. It's going to be hard to earn his spot back on the 40 man.

Are we currently at 39? 39 + Asher - Drake?

Dariel Alvarez is definitely coming off at some point...you gotta think

with Tavarez and Drake off, I think 38? Gentry needs to be added...more signings coming (minor league and major league probably).

Thanks.  So we are currently at 38.  Forgot to exclude Tavarez.

    • I think that's credible.   I'm disappointed but I also understand it.    Wells pitched well last year and his last two starts down here were good.   It would be tough telling him he didn't make the rotation.    The question is, what if Rodriguez dominates and all 5 starters are pitching decently during April and May.
    • I was thinking this at first too.  But.......isn't his trade value already predetermined to be two 1st round picks?    I don't think it is going to change thanks to the tag.   It might affect the size of the offer another team is willing to give him if they know he wants to leave.   That sucks for him and slightly increases the odds the Ravens would match it.  But the longer this drags on the less and less feasible that sounds.
    • It’s a real reporter from a real paper. So yes 
    • O’s ranked 18th at DH with 1.6 fWAR, with most PA coming from Stowers, Santander and Rutschman.  That brings projected position player WAR to 28.2, compared to 18.9 actual last year.  That would be a nice gain! “The Baltimore Orioles have some of the most promising young talent in the game, and it extends well beyond ballyhooed phenoms like Adley Rutschman, Gunnar Henderson, and Grayson Rodriguez. Notable among the less-hyped is Stanford product Kyle Stowers, who debuted last season at age 24 and homered three times while slashing .253/.306/.418 over 98 plate appearances. As modest as those get-your-feet-wet numbers are, it bears noting that he also put up a 130 wRC+ with 19 home runs in Triple-A, and he’d raked at Double-A in 2021. The 2019 second-rounder quietly continues to square up baseballs. “Anthony Santander has largely flown under the radar — at least on a national level — for much the same reason: he doesn’t get hyped as a big part of Baltimore’s future. But he arguably should. The 28-year-old switch-hitter produced a team-best 33 big flies last year, and ZiPS projects him to go deep 29 times with a 124 wRC+ in the coming season. A 2016 Rule-5 acquisition from Cleveland who was never viewed as a top prospect — even when the Orioles farm was far less formidable — Santander has developed into an offensive force.” https://blogs.fangraphs.com/2023-positional-power-rankings-designated-hitter/  
    • There is a recency bias too.  Is he more likely to repeat 2022 or 2021?
    • It's a combo of folks not liking that he was signed in the first place and his bat sucked in spring training.
