Orioles 40-man Roster Tracker

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else get the feeling that Britton will be given every opportunity to make it on the 25 man due to his lack of options' date=' either as a starter or long reliever?[/quote']

I still think Matusz will be traded and Britton will be given his role.

I think DD and Buck want to see what Wallace and Chiti can do with Britton. There are no guarantees how that turns out though.

The Orioles signed OF Francisco Peguero, 40-man count is now at 38.

Peguero still hasn't officially signed has he. If he hasn't, Ryan Webb puts us at 38.

Peguero is official according to Roch on a 1 year deal. thats 39

Also, the Orioles officially have reached agreement with former Giants outfielder Francisco Peguero, 25, on a one-year contract. He will take his physical later today before signing.

Peguero went 6-for-29 with the Giants this year, posting a .207/.233/.345 line with a double, home run, four runs scored and two stolen bases in 18 games. He was 3-for-16 with seven strikeouts, six runs scored and three stolen bases in 2012.

I suppose it's going to happen but it's not official according to MLB. Assuming it does, yes that puts us at 39. Adding a LF and DH obviously will knock someone off. Plus, it's looking more and more like there won't be a Rule 5 selection this year.

The Orioles added RHP Ryan Webb, so they are indeed at 39. I've updated the OP.

Looks like he has one option left. He was optioned in 2012, but only for 12 days so that one doesn't count.

What is the cutoff for that? I was unaware that if they are only optioned for a limited time it does not count as an option used.

If you are optioned for less than 20 days before being recalled you dont lose an option year.

Ryan Webb (I believe) has too much service time to be optioned without his explicit consent.

I hope this is true, at least the part about Britton getting a setup role. Britton still throws pretty hard and he's developed his slurve pretty well. He doesn't have the offspeed stuff or the command to be a starter. I think he could be a pretty good power reliever.

Almanzar selected from Boston in the Rule 5 draft.

Also, Cord Phelps was outrighted to Norfolk.

40-man roster count is at 39 (Peguero signing now official with MLB).

    • o   There was something else in that biography that I read that pertained to Robinson finishing anything that he possibly could in which he deemed was important ........ it was the night that he got into an altercation with a cook at a diner that he was eating dinner at early in his career.   According to Robinson, the cook was making threatening motions toward him with a  knife. Robinson retaliated by drawing a gun that he carried with him to defend himself in such situations. The cook immediately started screaming for help, and that this "crazy man" was trying to kill him.   Frank was subsequently arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, and released on his own recognizance ........ and then promptly went back to that same diner to finish his dinner.   o
    • o   If I was psyched enough to travel to Boston to see the last-place Orioles play at Fenway Park in September of 2009, I suppose that there isn't anything Orioles-related that I won't be psyched for ........ although I concede that Spring Training games that don't count in the standings takes a lot of luster of it off for me ........ I'd rather watch the AAA-Tides in a game that counts than watch the Orioles in a game that doesn't count. That's how my fandom is wired.   o
    • I'm definitely looking forward to watching some spring training games. I love watching the minor leaguers and seeing how they handle their opportunities. 
    • You pay him more than you need to this season and then overpay him the next 3 seasons.
    • Dumb move.  He is rated as 75th best corner.  And you are going to pay him 8 million a season?  I see no point in offering him a contract now.  Did they think he would get more than 8 million a year in free agency?  What if he gets injured this season?
    • Supposedly Madison Bumgarner dated a girl in high school who was named Madison Bumgarner.   They weren't related. Not the same thing, but probably just as unique. And Rougned Odor's brother is named Rougned Odor.
    • I regret that many younger Os fans never got to watch Frank in action as a player. He was as good as they come, Best Orioles hitter to ever don the uniform bar none. I recall fondly as a kid when he arrived in the greatest trade in Orioles history how unbelievably awesome he was. He imo was as good as Aaron or Mays but just wasn’t as heralded for some reason. When he won the Triple Crown I was in awe and it seemed to cement my young mind that the National League was superior as they more superstars than the AL and Frank’s performance demonstrated it clearly even more so in his clutch homers in the WS sweep of the Dodgers against their HOF pitchers. May he RIP as one of my greatest sports heroes ever. Up there with Brooks, Johnny U, Jim, Gino, Cal, Ray, Lenny,  and Eddie.
