Anyone know any comps of guys that didn't debut until 27 and then were really good? Very bizarre career trajectory.

Balt Sun: Orioles reliever Félix Bautista’s splitter has caught the attention of baseball, and it has a new name: ‘My lethal pitch’

With a nice light show too. Good stuff. Also love how Ben McDonald slipped in a "we're on mountain time now" when he came in yesterday. It's been a treat having Kevin and Ben back in the booth for this series.

Agreed, although I will say this.  As much as I am not a fan of Garceau doing play by play I thought he was the right guy to have in the booth on Saturday talking to Brooks and Eddie.

...I didn't hear it, but I like it.  I'm not sure "The Mountain" is the right nickname.  Maybe a little more finessed that that.

 

How about...."Colorado".

Ruiz said he's put on the IL for the knee. Too bad. Helluva year.

Balt Sun: Félix Bautista used to dream of being a closer. Now that he’s here, the Orioles right-hander isn’t settling.

Closer Félix Bautista is questionable for opening day because he’s been rehabbing his left knee all winter and immersed in a strengthening program for his right shoulder, which will keep him out of games until later in spring training. Bautista was shut down for a portion of September with shoulder fatigue, and a sprained knee forced him onto the injured list on Oct. 3. His rookie season already was a tremendous success, with Bautista registering a 2.19 ERA and 0.929 WHIP in 65 games, recording 15 saves as Jorge López’s replacement and averaging 12.1 strikeouts per nine innings.

“He’s throwing off a mound right now, throwing bullpens and looking good,” Elias said, “but will be a little bit later into getting into real Grapefruit League games than the normal player might be. He could be able to break for opening day, depending on how much of a ramp-up we’re able to get him.”

Whether Bautista avoids the IL depends on how many innings he accumulates in Florida to be declared ready to close games.

“He’s healthy,” Elias said, “but it’s put him behind in terms of schedule and how many real spring training games he projects to get at this point. He’s behind a normal schedule.”

Serious question. He's a closer. How many real ST games does he need to get in to be ready for opening day. Seems like he could do darn near 100% of what he needs to do in training especially the way he pitches. He's going to go out on the mound and throw his nasty splitter. He doesn't need to face batters to be ready IMO.

If he's throwing bullpens now there is no reason for him to not be ready for Opening Day unless there is a setback.

I think the issue will be can Bautista.s knee hold up to the pounding a man that big, has to put up with.

I think he can be ready pitching wise with 7-10 spring innings.

They need to manage his workload then. Maybe limit the B2B’s and certainly the 3+ out outings.
