Jake is a fast, great runner and defensive super plus. Perfect for a late inning sub in the playoffs.
Very true, but you can't have 2 guys in that same role. Assuming full health you've got to have George, Brantley, Reddick and Alvarez in the OF and Yuli, Altuve, Correa, Bregman and Diaz as infielders. Plus two catchers that only leaves room for 2 position players.

Maybe they are comfortable enough with Straw and Jake as the 2, but you'd think they would want a guy off the bench with some pop like Tucker.

I get it. But guys that can save runs in the playoffs are always valuable.

Jake is out of options. I'm almost certain so is Kemp and so is Stassi.
Jake had 2 options coming into last season. Doesn't that mean he has to have one left?

Jake will be on the post season roster.

My bet for the other spot at this time would be Straw.

I was certain he used his last option year last year. But I could be wrong.

I thought all 4 of the bench guys were out of them and that was tying their hands a bit. But again I could be wrong.

I remember reading that his option was only good through mid or late may because of service time. After that, it expired and they can no longer option him.

Yes that's right, I remember that too. Has it hit yet?

Written on April 18th...

Quote:

Technically, Marisnick still retains one minor league option. When he reaches his fifth year of service time next month, the 28-year-old outfielder can refuse a minor league demotion, underscoring the inflexibility within the group and a possible roster shakeup that could loom later this season.

I'm confused by this. They already have a logjam of players on that team.

Alvarez is on a scorching pace of ~130 HR/162 games. I wonder if the Astros targeted this stretch of opponents to bring him up because of bad pitching.

Did I miss where MLB allowed the Yankees to carry a 50 man roster?

A week ago I wanted E for the 'stros DH, now he would have no place to play.

I thought the same thing.

But we still could've used him at 1B while Correa is out.

After that though he's got no spot

Seriously. Where is he playing for NY? Judge is RF. Stanton is 1B/DH when he comes back. That's where Voit has been playing.

And the Yankees still won't win it all.

Maybe Stanton's injury is worse than they're letting on and they don't see him contributing much.

That's all I can think of.

Or they're just trying to keep him away from other teams.

might be both: keepaway and Giancarlo problems.

NYY has become a team of slow right-handed sluggers that swing & miss a lot --- that's a great matchup for JV and Cole

The prospect the Md got was the Yankees #27 ranked minor league player. So the got Encarnacion for a 19 year old lottery long shot. And the Ms are paying half the remaining salary. What kind of idiot is running Seattle? Because the Yankees just stole E.
W
How long do you want to ignore this user?

on the brightside...the Astros still have 12 games left vs. Seattle (or whatever is left of the Mariners)
W

and this could have a little impact on the AL wildcard race.

the Red Sox are finished with Seattle. But the Rays haven't played the Mariners yet this season. And the Rangers have 9 games left vs. Seattle. Small edge to Tampa and the Arlingtons
