Or a trade candidate.

Yea, that is likely, but if it is another trade like Villar's, it is the same as dumping him.

I think they should trade him in the offseason to the Angels.
 
I don't have a goal of pounding every peg into a hole regardless of whether it fits or not.


Hard to envision him having any value in a trade.

He has to take advantage of the opportunities he gets.  Pretty clearly Hyde values Severino's defense over his... which is saying something, because Severino isn't Pudge Rodriguez.

 

I think Sisco has the potential athleticism for 2nd somewhere. 

I think if he has any Oriole future, it's him grabbing time behind the plate, and then potentially getting more time behind the plate than a normal backup with Rutschman...  if they want to limit Rutschman's wear-and-tear.

I said awhile back in a thread that his defense isnt going to play at C in the bigs. Buck didn't want to use him back there and it's clear Hyde doesn't either. As you said, it's not like Severino is a stud with the leather. He needs to hit. IMO he's got more potential offensive upside than most of the players on the current roster. The Os dont want to completely give up on him at C but by doing that all they are doing is suppressing his ABs and any chance to get the bat going.

This is so well said.

 

I am not sure I buy that he is ever going to be anything offensively but this organization isn't giving him a chance to succeed.

Right. He is far from a sure thing but he deserves a chance to see if the tool that has carried him his whole pro career can play at the ML level.

Stick him at C and just roll with it. Give him a solid shot and see what happens.

I want to see his bat get a long chance. I really don't like the idea of him catching. He is just not very good back there. The truth is, is that it doesn't matter. This is a really bad ball club, so let's see if he can hit, if not adios.

I don't think he'd be that good anywhere.

But if he's hitting, , they should find someplace for him to play.

I would have him in the line up tonight. ( He's been hitting.)

Let him DH. catch Severino, play Nunez at first, bench non hitting Davis.
