Baltimore saves millions

The Orioles top prospect Matt Weiters will make his MLB debut on Friday Vs the Detroit Tigers.weitersx

The brilliant minds in Baltimore saved bunches of money by keeping him in the minors for the first part of this season. Even if Weiters doesn’t ever go back to the minors he will only accumulate 129 days of service and won’t qualify to become a super two after 2011.  The super two rule is a bit complicated but that link does a pretty good job of explaining it. What it boils down to is that . He will only qualify for arbitration three times instead of four times which will save them millions down the road when they expect to be in contention.

This will also work out for the Rays who just called up David Price and will work for Atlanta if they decide to call up their Ace of the future Tommy Hanson
