Rams waive Michael Dunn

The Rams announced they waived offensive tackle Michael Dunn on Tuesday. The team did not announce a corresponding move, leaving them at 89 players.

Dunn, 23, spent two days on the Rams’ practice squad last season. They re-signed him in February.

He originally signed as an undrafted free agent out of Maryland in 2017. The Rams released him after the preseason.

Most of Dunn’s 48 starts at Maryland came at left tackle. He earned All-Big Ten honorable mention in 2015 and 2016.

Hurst walked on at South Carolina in 2015 after two years in the Pittsburgh Pirates’ organization. He developed the yips as a pitcher and was also tried at first base. He’ll turn 25 in August, but his athleticism and hands make him the top tight end on the board.

Ragnow missed the last five games of the season because of ankle surgery, but did some position drills at his pro day. He was a three-year starter, a team captain and plays with toughness. He has the ability to play guard or center.

Key left the team in the spring of 2017 for reasons he hasn’t publicly explained. He had shoulder surgery right before the ’17 season and disappointing showings in pre-draft workouts. On the other side of the coin are games like his eight-tackle, one-sack performance against Alabama.

Cain has a better feel for the position than many of his peers in this draft who had bigger career numbers. He is a high-quality route runner with the speed to finish and physical edge to work the middle of the field.

Washington looks more like a running back and his speed on the field is better than what he showed in pre-draft workouts. He has limited exposure to the routes he will be asked to run in the NFL, but the bottom line is he averaged 19.8 yards per catch in his career with 39 touchdowns.

There isn’t anyone young on that pace right now

Consider that while Cabrera is at 451 home runs at age 34, Bill James’ Favorite Toy gives him just a 34-percent chance at reaching 600. In two out of every three futures, something drags him down before he hits another 149 home runs. That’s a good start on your way to being impressed with just how unlikely 600 homers is; it’s hard even if you’re spotted the first 450. The final 25 percent will mess you up.

Think of a great 34-year-old player. Like Cabrera! Think of the sentence eh, if he averages 30 home runs for another five seasons, he’ll get that extra 150 he needs. Then look at the players with five of those seasons after turning 34. There are five of them in baseball history. If you want to change the parameters, and see how many hitters have the quintet of 25-homer seasons that Cabrera needs, the answer is seven.

And if you want to change parameters to include a 30-homer season here, a 25-homer season, a 20-homer season, followed by five 15-homer seasons … I mean, maybe? But you’re digging a pretty deep hole.

There isn’t anyone young on that pace right now, which means there simply aren’t going to be a lot of contenders for the 600-dinger throne. There are just nine active players with even 300 homers, and Cabrera and Edwin Encarnacion are the youngest, at 34.

Trumbo was drafted in the 18th round of the 2004 draft as a pitcher, but he appeared in his first pro game in 2005, as a first baseman. I’m guessing either instructional league wasn’t very kind to his pitching, or the Angels knew where he was playing all along.
