So who out of this group would you not protect?

Staters - (11) Bundy, Cashner, Cobb, Harvey, Hess, Means, Oritiz,  Ramirez, Rogers,  Yacabonis, Tate.

Relievers -  (15)  Araujo, Bleier, Carroll,  Castro, Fry. Givens, Gilmartin, Hart, Meisinger, Phillips,  Scott, Wright,  Flaa, Kline, Luis Gonzalez

Catcher (4)  Cervenka, Joesph, Sisco, Wynns

Infielders ( 6)    Beckham,  Davis, Nunez,  Valera, Villar, Wilkerson

Outfielder ( 6) Hays, Mancini, Mullins, Rickard, Stewart, Santander

DH (1) Trumbo

Rule 5 Draft (2)

Total (45)

 

That is a huge amount of pitchers.  I would really call it pitching talent.  80% of them are potential middle relievers/5th starters on a bad team.  I would like the O's to open up 4 or 5 spots on the 40 man roster because they need to sign an OF, an IF and a starter who can eat innings and could go in the bullpen or be traded later in the year. 

I would get rid of Ramirez, Rogers, Yacabonis from starting pitchers, Gilmartin, Meisinger, Wright, and Gonzalez from relievers.  Position players cut would be Beckham, Nunez, Valera, Santander, and Rickard.  I might cut Joseph too and try to bring him back at a lower salary.  The O's would have to have a veteran catcher next year.  I guess the 2 Rule 5 draft picks is assuming the O's will pick up 2 Rule 5's. 

That would leave 31 players on the 40 man Roster.

2 Rule 5 draft picks.

Sign an IF, OF, 4th OF, utility IF and 5th starter/long relief type.

38 players

Look to trade for talent in top farm systems that is blocked or players on waiver wire. 

There's no problem getting under 40 players,  there is so much marginal talent protected on the 40 man roster.

I serious doubt that Cobb, Cashner  or Trumbo will be traded prior to the Rule 5 draft.  So  all three will be protected on the 40 man roster.   Davis is not getting released.  I am surprised you think he would be.  I know you said these are guys you would release and not that the O's would release them, but let's be realistic.

Beckham and Hart I agree with.

Araujo, Phillips and Meisinger are all players that have had minor league success and are very likely to be protected by the O's on the 40 man roster.    In the rebuild the O's will be looking to give chances next year to these kind of minor league players IMO.  In spite of what the Red Sox did to Meisinger today.

I said this is what i would do, not what I think the Orioles will do. Araujo, Phillips and Meisinger are replacement level relievers at best. If they need space they can go.

The O's are going to need all their pitcher plus more.   If the O's find a decent deal that allows them to get salary relief for Cobb, he will be gone.  Maybe this off season.. Maybe some time next season.

If the O's don't develop some good pitching soon, all the position players will have to work on their pitching.  I think the O's will and should keep Cobb and Cashner through the offseason because someone needs to pitch and outside of Hess, I haven't seen much major league ready pitching.  Cobb and Cashner can always be traded at the trade deadline if pitchers like Akin are ready.

Unless they are overwhelmed they need Cobb to eat innings. 

We are seeing now the lack of depth.

You have to remember these players that are exposed with the rule 5 draft have to stay in the majors for 90 days.  How many players that aren't good enough to play for the 110 loss O's are going to be good enough to play for another major league team.  Basically only a few rebuilding teams are going to claim them.

If we take Araujo off the 40 man I would think he would go back to the Cubs.

He throws junk and has a .216 BABIP and a 91% Left on Base, neither are remotely sustainable even for an excellent pitcher. It's 25 innings, if you project him forward with even his minor league LOB and BABIP numbers, he's a 5 ERA guy. 

 ERA is not a good judge of talent in small samples.

 Gilmartin has faced 103 batters, the only statistic that begins to stabilize at that few batters faced is K rate. Gilmartin's K rate is 4.68/K or 12.6%, both poor.

  

But a 5.00 ERA would be the star of our staff.  But he will be 29 next year. Don't think he needs to be protected.  But you could say that about half the guys on the 40 man.  I would assume he is out of options and if he isn't on the 40 man he is a free agent.

Do we really take up a spot on our 40 man roster all off season on a guy that could give up 3 runs in an inning and his whole stat line being blown?

If Beckham is non tendered then Wilkerson is either the 2B or UIF.  Until the O's can find better. 

Santander will turn 24 in October.  He is exactly the kind of prospect the rebuilding O's should be trying to develop.

    • If I'm reading this correctly, the Orioles are 6th in defensive value this year and the White Sox are dead last by a lot: to date, they're at -54 runs; the worst team in baseball for all of '23 was -72 (https://www.baseball-reference.com/leagues/team_compare.cgi?request=1&year=2024&lg=MLB&stat=runs_fielding). So the difference between Burnes and Fedde must be the defensive adjustment. FWIW, fWAR using FIP has them even at 2.0 WAR apiece; using RA9 Burnes is ahead 2.9 to 2.4.
    • One game at a time. Let’s go O’s 👍🏻
    • You do realize our pen has given up fewer runs, fewer hits, fewer BBs, has a lower WHIP, and has more Ks?  I get that they don’t pass your eye test, but the numbers don’t back that up.  With all that said, I think they need to reinforce the pen but let’s stop with the dramatics.  
    • The OP is too pessimistic. NYY is 5-5 in their last 10, Orioles are 8-2. NYY have cooled down, as predicted. The O's are getting them at the right time. With that said, it's baseball. Anything can happen. I would be surprised if the Orioles don't take at least 2 out of 3, though.
    • Objectively speaking I would have WAY MORE confidence in Rodon than Irvin/Kremer/Suarez. And I LOVE what both Irvin and Suarez have done for us this season and couldn’t have dreamed of either giving us any more than they have.
    • Holliday is not getting traded IMO, so there’s really no point in discussing that. But there is a case to be made that the other two are a bit redundant and if we plan on doing some extensions, they could be expendable (at least one of them). Off the top of my head. I would strongly consider Miller or Crochet for one of them. I guess I look at it like this, I can see a realistic plausible scenario of us winning a championship or more without the services of Basallo or Mayo. However, I cannot see ya winning this season as is without a meaningful upgrade to the current pitching. Many said all last season, the pitching was good as is, until it (predictably) wasn’t.
    • Well for starters, there closer and set up man are both better than ours. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that the Yanks pen is better than the Phills by any stretch. But it is better than ours.
