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).

    • 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.
