2013-2014 Orioles Off-Season Moves Tracker

Recommended Posts

per Roch:

Note: The Blue Jays have signed Dan Johnson to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Johnson went 0-for-5 with the Orioles before they outrighted him to Triple-A Norfolk. He refused the assignment and became a free agent.

Also, the White Sox signed Alex Liddi to a minor league deal. The Orioles purchased his contract from the Mariners on July 6.

Thanks, I'll update the OP. Also, Zelous Wheeler signed a minor league deal with the Yankees.

Chiang is the only one of those names I recognize. He was a pretty big prospect for the Red Sox before he got traded to the Mariners (for Erik Bedard) and then never hit like he did with Boston. Kyeong Kang is an alum of Parkview High in Georgia, along with Josh Hart and Jeff Francoeur. He strikes out a lot but hits some too. Huntzinger looks like deep bullpen depth. Additon probably would have made the major league rotation of a lot of teams at some point if his stats are anything to go on. Unfortunately for him, he was in the Cardinals' system, where starting pitchers grow on trees. Without any knowledge of his stuff, his stats look like a left-handed Steve Johnson.

A lot of interesting depth here, a couple fliers that could pay off, probably nobody that'll make a huge difference but some guys who we could see in Baltimore.

I'll add them to the OP. Nice synopsis. I like them as well, Huntzinger's numbers last season were amazing.

He did very well in 135 inning of the PCL. He survived.

Miguel Garcia inexplicably retired from baseball at the age of 20. I'm assuming it's due to an injury. He put up some nice numbers in the DSL for the O's, especially in 2012.

Sounds like a nice addition. Well... somebody had to do it. :laughlol:

The Orioles signed infielder Sharlon Schoop and outfielder Ronald Bermudez to minor league contracts, according to a team release.

Schoop last played in the minors in 2012, when he was in the Royals organization. He is the brother of Orioles prospect Jonathan Schoop.

Bermudez hit .261/.299/.329 in stints at Double-A and Triple-A in the Red Sox organization in 2013.

    • I would rather have Mark Reynolds than Mark Trumbo.  30 HR & 97 RBI & 2.8 WAR is a lot better than Trumbo produced.  Do the O's have any international slot money they can trade?  I'm predicting Trumbo + international slot money + cash for a mediocre 5th starter and a non-prospect.
    • You may or may not be a lifelong O's fan. But if you love baseball, and love the O's, the Yankees losing the next best thing to the O's winning. Just a fact based in reality. If you claim to be an O's fan, and are ambivalent to the Yankees winning in the postseason while O's fans lick their wounds, and need to go read a book,  I suggest "Non-Chalant Sunflower Seed Eating: a Guidebook" with a forward by Mark Reynolds.        
    • I wouldn’t need to get anything back, Trumbo has negative value. Either you play him and hopefully he’s good enough to offload at the deadline or you send something of value with him to make the deal palatable to the other team.  Losing him won’t hurt the O’s competitiveness, hell for the money the team saves, they could sign Jarrod Dyson or Howie Kendrick. Both of which would make the team better.
    • Not even close to the Browns who have, literally, decades of losing. We’ve won two Super Bowls during that time. I’m not trying to defend the product on the field, but we are more on par with a team like the Chargers, maybe?  As we’ve seen, being a rich business man doesn’t mean that you’re necessarily good at anything besides being a business man. 😂 We’re stuck with Joe at least one more season for cap reasons, right? I say Harbaugh is gone after this year, but Ozzie stays at least as long as Joe. I still trust Ozzie since I think a lot of it is that he’s hamstrung by the Flacco contract, which was unavoidable at the time we signed him. One of these days, though, he’s going to need to draft a WR who doesn’t bust.
    • I like the thought but considering we plan on competing this coming season, it might not be the best idea to trade a (arguably) useful player to a team that is already better than us.  I'd personally do Trumbo for Holt in a heartbeat, though. 
    • With bacon and onions. Yes!
    • Looks like the Mets are going to hire Cleveland pitching coach Mickey Callaway as their new manager.
