I know he doesn't lose the service if it's less tna than a 20 day assignment, but does he burn the actual option? I think not. Would be a strange decision to burn his final one this late when he may be very well suited to a Norfolk shuttle situation as the 14th/15th man next year.

Probably burns an option but who cares. He will still have 1 left and the chances that it will matter in '24 is nearly non existent

I think this is his last option if he burns it. Fangraphs says he has 1 left, assume that hasn't been updated tonight.

I guess maybe he was optioned in '20. I assumed he wasnt. I still dont care. It wouldnt shock me if they removed him from the 40 man

I think he did a good job for most of the year, but he has faltered late.

 

Jake Reed would have been the guy I sent down, but not that big of a deal.

Reed would have to clear waivers

For your last arm in the pen I really like having an optionable guy you can rotate up and down as needed. Akin probably can still be that guy, my guess is he doesn't burn the option if it's under 20 days. I'll dig into it tomorrow.

Long man next year could be he and Baumann sharing a spot between here and Norfolk. Wells and Hall also on that shuttle, though I think I'd rather have Wells in MR and Hall at AAA trying to fix the things he needs to fix to start. Lot of good options, just think we're a little deeper and better if Akin remains one of them. If he has no options, we'll lose him at some point. Not a big loss by any means but I'd rather not just give him away.

Ok I checked, he won't burn an option this year since it'll be under 20 days total in the minors.  Clever roster management from Elias & Co.
