Which I think means Bergman is the odd man out.....Gallardo keeps a spot despite the 2nd worst ERA in the AL among qualified....

 

I mean I get it,  we can put Berg down, and probably Gaviglio when Kuma returns and keep them.  If we were to bump Gallardo we'd have to cut him. And with this teams recent history with injuries, we need arms.... Cause thats really all GAllardos done well this year,   be available.....

I think they should move Gallardo to the bullpen as "long relief" to avoid DFAing him but still not sending him out there once every 5 days to stink it up.  He could come in if we are way behind or way ahead (we have been having a lot of football scores lately anyway)... never if the game is within 3 runs - and if the tying run gets on deck then give him the hook.

Agreed, use Gallardo as the mop-up guy, enough of his 5-run first innings....

I'm with you guys. Keeping Gallardo over Bergman is purely roster dynamics.

I guess they follow that for a couple more rotations through to see how productive The King and Stone Bear are. After that, unless Gallardo has coincidentally turned it around, he'll be demoted to MR or AAA.

I don't like the move, but it does help the team their bets a lot better.

AAPs:

Kyle Lewis

The M's 2016 first round pick and the 11th Overall is the system's top prospect and has several accolades to his name.  Even though he is currently out of commission recovering from injury, he still has a whole bunch of potential.

Mike Ford

This Rule 5-acquired first baseman just might be the M's best player at the position.  I'm betting on it!  He's never walked less than he's K'd and he just flashed some serious power in his first taste of AAA.  He just needed a position and there happens to be one available in the Emerald City.

So long, fellas.  I hope that all of you do well in your future endeavors.  Perhaps you can tap into the potential seen in the M's system and have success elsewhere in the baseball world.  Just... not against the M's, OK?

Hopefully in a couple weeks Smyly comes back. Then the real question should be between Gallardo and Miranda. As the 5th starter. That's hopefully when Gallardo's leash gets pulled.

This I don't think is a question.  Miranda stepped up and saved our bottoms so far this season.  While yes Gallardo has stayed healthy,  And I feel the need to keep pointing to that.  Because he's the only one of the original rotation to make his start every 5th day.

 

I agree with you guys,  we can't cut him yet,  with how snake bitten this team has been,  gotta see some sustained health first.

I think we need to see more than just sustained health. We need to see them be effective as well.

 

I had a lot of questions regarding the starting rotation before the season started. Paxton's durability, Iwakuma's age. Felix's decline in fastball speed. The "big guns" are finally coming back, but I still have those same questions.

 

Seeing Iwakuma get rocked in AAA last night doesn't help those concerns.

Adopt-a-Players:

Evan White - 1B drafted out of Kentucky. Hit .277/.345/.532/.877 for the AquaSox in 2017

 

Gone But Not Forgotten (former adopt-a-players):

Forrest Snow - Posted a 3.83 ERA between AA and AAA this season. His playing career is probably winding to a close.

Alex Jackson - Traded to Atlanta, moved back to catcher and hit .267/.328/.480/.808 between High-A and AA
Eric Thames - Hit .247/.359/.518/.877 for the Brewers and really needs a shave.
Matt Mangini - Out of baseball. Now sells cigars.
Mike Morse - Back with the SF Giants but hasn't played since May due to injuries. Looks like time has caught up with him.
Jamal Strong - Let go after 2005. Played in the Yankees, Cubs and Braves systems. Now a national scout for the Cards.

Meh I don't really care about the results in AAA.  Just that he feels good and is able to recover like normal.

And Moore called up to slot in his place.

 

Things make a little more sense now.
