A couple of American League East teams have made new additions to their 60-man player pools. Here are the latest updates:
- One of the Orioles’ top prospects, right-hander Grayson Rodriguez has joined their player pool, the team announced. The 20-year-old isn’t far removed from going 11th overall to the Orioles in the 2018 draft. He made his Single-A debut last year and turned heads with a 2.68 ERA, 12.4 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9 in 94 innings. Rodriguez currently ranks among the league’s best farmhands – FanGraphs (No. 29), MLB.com (36) and Baseball America (37) are among the prospect outlets that are quite bullish on him.
- The Rays have added catcher/outfielder Brett Sullivan, who will head to their alternate training site, Juan Toribio of MLB.com tweets. Sullivan was a 17th-round pick of the Rays in 2015 who has since climbed to Double-A ball. He batted an impressive .280/.333/.459 (127 wRC+) and hit 10 home runs with 21 stolen bases in 403 plate appearances last season.
Can the Rays trade Sullivan for Rodriguez and maybe a side of rice pilaf?
Rays may need to add a key lime pie to call it fair
If key lime pie is Franco
Why on Earth would the Orioles trade a promising young pitcher to a division rival, for an OF; even if the OF has also shown well?
Has anyone heard how this Covid-19 stuff is going to affect the next Rule-5 draft?
Does anyone know where I can get a full list of the O’s players at Bowie, the alternate site?
This might be the list here, not 100% positive though.
Oh great blowhard of the East admits he isn’t sure about something!??! I’ve seen it all!
Not sure what Ramon Urias is up to if he isn’t in camp with the O’s though!
Maybe you have me confused with AssumeFactsNotInEvidence Johhny boy? Ramon is listed on this web page: https://www.mlb.com/orioles/roster/40-man. MLB web page accuracy is outside my control. However, in matters I do control, I am serving you with a six-day social distancing post suspension for name calling…
