One is forced to wonder if this is a new development or if he was trying to pitch through it.

Pretty substantial blow to the team in any case.

There is no way to be certain, but he certainly pitched like he was playing through something. On the other hand, if that was the case and he comes back looking better, then maybe it's for the best. Playing through injuries for months on end rarely works out well.

Don't see the sense in that when we have Crichton, Yacabonis, and tons of other bullpen options.

I don't have faith in any of those guys being a shutdown guy in the pen.

Sedlock might be able to do that.  I'm not talking now, I talking if Britton is out for an extended period and Dan/Buck has already ran all these guys out there.  Sometime after the ASB.

Hard to believe this just cropped up on Friday night and they are already DLing him.   If they really thought it was minor, I'd think they'd wait it out a few days.  I too wonder if this is something that's been lingering all spring.   When Buck says it's something we want to take care of so it doesn't linger all year long it makes me think that something happened long before Friday night.

I doubt the official line.  I know the 10 day DL isn't the same as the old 15 but Buck isn't one to DL his key guys if he can help it.

    • We have gone over this repeatedly. Hicks' salary through 2025 is locked in based on his contract with the Yankees. Unless someone wants to pay him more than the 9.5M per year his Yankee contract will pay, he will simply sign for the minimum and the remainder of the 9.5M per year will be paid by the Yankees.
    • I mean I do agree with the many people who say here that if Cowser or Kjerstad or some other hitter emerges as good or better than Santander, then yes of course it makes sense to trade him.   But I just don't trust prospect rankings.  Don't assume a player will be as good as high as he ranked until he proves it over a period of time.  In 2016 Jorge Mateo was the Yankees top prospect, just ahead of Aaron Judge -- just to name one example.  For this reason I think Santander hangs around a little awhile -- unless the O's trade for or sign a replacement outfield bat prior to the season -- in addition to trading Santander.  
    • But the Rays did lock up some of their best hitters -- mainly Evan Longoria and Wander Franco.  I know Santander is not at that level, but I think there's a good chance Santander is with the team to start next season.  I think it's a mistake to assume someone is ready to take over for him until he proves it.  If not then trade for or sign someone who is -- if he must be traded now or pretty soon.  I don't trust prospect rankings.  In 2016 Jorge Mateo was the Yankees top prospect, just ahead of Aaron Judge.   Also, the Orioles don't really have the pitching in the minors the way the Rays always seem to.  Can't imagine Means or any decent pitcher getting traded for that reason.  And for a long time the Rays weren't a very good hitting team, which I think is a big reason the Rays never tried to lock up their position players until guys like Evan Longoria started to emerge, though there may be a bit more to it than that.  
    • 49ers QB Brock Purdy had UCL repair with InternalBrace. Here’a a summary comparing the two. I’m sure Bautista and his medical team will closely consider the best course for his circumstance.    https://www.armoredheat.com/armored-heat-blog/tommy-john-vs-ucl-repair
    • Building on some of the other posts, the ‘83 Orioles lost 5 of their last 7, giving up 40 runs in those seven.  In 9 postseason games they gave up 12 total runs. I have no idea if the O’s bats will wake up or struggle.  I have no idea if the bullpen can get tough outs without a weapon like Bautista available.  And I have no idea how the starters will perform in the intensity of the postseason.   But unlike fans of 22 other teams next Saturday we can find out!
