Orioles - DFAed Matos
Baltimore Orioles - Designated OF Luis Matos for assignment; purchased the contract of Luis Terrero.
I’m very happy to see Matos go - while there were times he looked like he good be a decent player, his yearly injuries stalled his development and he’s turne out to be no more than a waiver 5th outfielder - a guy who takes the last outfield job and sometimes starts at center in April for a dumb team because he hit .350 in the spring.
Terrero’s been completely scorching the ball in Ottawa this year, but he’s still Luis Terrero and when it comes down to it, there won’t be much of a difference between the future careers of either Luis. What was impressive was Terrero’s 0-14 stint with the O’s earlier this season in that he actually looked worse than his stats - the way he was flailing, you’d expect to have seen a negative BA on the TV.
What’s really depressing is that I rather see Terrero playing than Brandon Fahey, who’s giving me Pete Stanicek flashbacks. It took the late 80s Orioles 400 plate appearances and a number of injuries before they realized that Stanicek was awful - I hope it doesn’t take these O’s as long.
