Perhaps the Mods may consider this worthy of being a sticky for our convenience.

Thanks Billy, I updated the OP. They both had nice years, glad to see them re-signed.

Also, for any players we add to the organization, I'll try to link in their baseball reference page.

We re-signed Tim Alderson (our bounty from trading Luis Ayala). We also signed Cam Kneeland, our first Independent League signee this year. Kneeland mainly held down the 3B position for the Trois-Rivieres Aigles of the Can-AM League, his baseball-reference page is attached in the OP.

Alderson was the Canzler deal. BTW, he was a first round pick.

Chris Jones was the Ayala deal.

The Orioles must think pretty highly of Chris Jones; they've kept him longer on our 40-man then I'd have thought they would.

The Orioles signed their first international player of the offseason, inking 18 year old Juan Diego Montes. He hails from Guatemala. Most media are incorrectly reporting that he is the second player we have signed from there (they mention Aguilar). We also have Manny Hernandez as well.

Rumors and News






  • Posts

    • This kid can just pitch. If he can find a way to get his velocity into the 89-91 range he has the chance to be a beast. not saying he can't have some success at his 87-90, but he'll need pinpoint control when he gets to more mature hitters. Saying that, when I saw him last year, I don't think i ever seen a guy who never throws the ball the same speed two times in a row. He has a chance to be a very fast mover.  I'm looking forward to seeing him pitch this year to compare him from last year.
    • Also, I have to say that I hate ESPN's website.    The older version was better, both in form and content.    And if I want articles from fivethirtyeight.com, I'll go there and read them.    I don't need them mixed in with my sports news.    
    • Yea, he rambled on a bit.  I stopped reading shortly after that section.
    • Yes, because the first month or two is always, always overemphasized.  Decisions are made based on tiny samples of almost meaningless data and emotional knee-jerks.  You're better off if your nonsensical knee jerks are positive rather than negative.  You're almost always better off riding your offseason plan longer rather than making any choice based on 50 PAs.
    • In the AFL in 2015 the cutter/slider was causing him some discomfort. To the best of my knowledge he wasn't throwing it in games or even bullpen sessions last season.
    • Do some athletes find themselves unhappy with an organization and then just put forth mediocre effort (or tank) with hopes of being released and thus given a "change of scenery"? I have no idea if this is the case or if this is even a thing (I feel like Jake's situation was different - was pitching coach and philosphical differences)? I'm just wondering if he's wanting to go to a place where he's actually wanted and there's a clear line of advancement to the Majors). Just pure wild speculation, not based on anything other than he's a complex guy.
