In all seriousness, Joey Rickard is who I would expect.  Dwight Smith has a chance.  By the end of April I could see Hays or Diaz, whoever has a better start in AAA.  By the All-Star Break, I'd like to see Hays in RF, Diaz in LF, Mullins in CF, with Mancini at 1B or DH and Trumbo on waivers.

Who's on first.

So who's the RF?

Only tiny defense of the O's decision to send down Hays. The Orioles have a jammed 40-man roster and a few non-roster players like Eric Young Jr. who might make the team. Since Hays was in Baltimore in September 2017, I think this is more punting hard decisions on the 40-man roster than service-time manipulation. That said, I still think it's the wrong move.

You should be able to get Trey Mancini.  He's earned decent money the past two years in our game.

I'm not sure I can name any Orioles outfielders.  That Mullins guy, right?  Who else?  Lowenstein?

Mike Landau ML-

He just went from $8 to #4 on my reserve round board, not that it matters, as I pick 10th and he could easily go #1.

Two headlines from yesterday. "Austin Hays crushes fifth home run in
victory" "Orioles option spring standout Austin Hays" See you in
mid-April, Mr. Hays!

Another homer yesterday, bringing his Spring total to four. DJ Stewart, the favourite to start the season in right field has been dispatched to Norfolk, leaving Hays, Joey Rickard and Anthony Santander fighting for the job. For Leagues that have already drafted, Hays becomes a very intriguing early WW target.
