O's haveeen sharp picking up players via the waiver wire in recent years (see Rule 5!) but not thru trades.Their trades generally have sucked royally or been simply (mehs)

Stowers has great OBA's and batting has improved as he's moved up thru minors.He mite as good a hitting prospect as Rutsch. Heard he's going to Arizona Fall Lge. which is good.

Mateo, Urias, Martin, Gutierrez (great fielder but not hitting) have talent but are big question marks. Right now though, they ARE the infield. I think O's will sign one or two vet infielders for next year because they won't want to depend on them.

Don't care for either Wynns or Sevy as back-ups to Rutsch. Wynns can't hit and Sevy can't field ell enough.Orioles have to look elsewhere for bck-up, I think.

I pretty much agree with everything you said. I lean towards Wynns as backup catcher, assuming Adley will be no. 1. The backup catcher is probably the least important position on the team. Probably won't see a lot of playing time. Our pitching staff next year will most likely be made up of a lot of young guy's, so I think good defense back there will be important.

Reliever Isaac Mattson is joining the Orioles, whether for their active roster or taxi squad on the trip to Toronto.

Outfielders Yusniel Diaz and Kyle Stowers are among the Orioles prospects assigned to the Arizona Fall League. Diaz started in center field today and Stowers in right for Triple-A Norfolk.

Diaz struck out in all three at-bats.

The full AFL rosters will be announced on Monday.

See if Tampa dumps any.


In counties where Donald Trump received at least 70 percent of the vote, the virus has killed about 47 out of every 100,000 people since the end of June. In counties where Trump won less than 32 percent of the vote, the number is about 10 out of 100,000.

Elias Inc. trumpets targeting pitching. I think they mean from the discard heap. Not E-Rod. Not the best pitcher in amateur ball. Valdez. Plutco. Harvey.

If they are almost ready to compete again, and they better be, it's not too early to get some top gun pitching. Free agents or draftees.

Highly unlikely they sign any top rated free agent pitching. That would shock the sheet out of me. Hopefully, but not really expected going by his track record, he'll draft a few solid pitching prospects.

Any top pitching FA w/cost well over $125 million. Don't care if they do that, frankly.I WOULD like them to go pitching w/their top picks if there are pitchers that warrant it.Don't scrimp on the top picks so you can out-bid the others on the 17th.
