The list includes my favorites, Adam Jones, Jonathan Schoop, Manny Machado, and Nick Markakis (even though he’s on the IL right now with a fractured wrist), and a few other guys. For this month, I’ve added Mike Yastrzemski, another guy the O’s never should have traded, since he was called up to the Giants on May 25. I’ve also added Aderlin Rodriguez, who was one of my favorite Bowie Baysox, who is currently a member of the San Diego Padres triple-A affiliate, the El Paso Chihuahuas (unfortunately he’s on the IL right now, too).
Here are the latest stats:
[Note that I’ve removed Caleb Joseph from the list because he has not had much playing time – he was optioned to the Reno Aces on 5/2/2019, recalled to the Diamondbacks on 6/14, re-optioned on 6/28, and is currently on the IL. Tim Beckham has been removed from the list because on Tuesday, MLB announced that he had been suspended for 80 games for testing positive for the banned performance-enhancing drug Stanozolol.]
While the position players are mostly doing well elsewhere, that really can’t be said for the pitchers. Kevin Gausman, for example, was recently claimed off waivers by the Cincinnati Reds after struggling in Atlanta. Brad Brach was DFA’d on August 3rd and released two days later. However, I added Eduardo Rodriguez to the list, because, even though he’s with the Red Sox now, I did like him when he was with the Baysox.
