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).

    • Davis would say, "Thank you", and happily sit on the bench for $141,975 per game and eat sunflower seeds, then go home to his children and wife and enjoy his extravagant lifestyle. I mean, if he could not show up at the park at all, that would be even better as it'd save him several hours out of the day, and he could spend those hours with his kids or playing video games or something. But, eh, for $141,975, pretty much any human being would happily spend 4 to 8 hours at a baseball park, occasionally working out and taking batting practice and eating sunflower seeds.
    • I would consider them Top 100.  I was referring to a few of the others, though not a knock on their skill level either. I regret not being more specific. 
    • The second one is my area code.  
    • This has to be one of the most pathetic and disappointing games I've seen the Orioles play all season. Zero effort. How do you lose 11-1 to a pitcher as bad as Covey? How does Cobb, a guy we went out and acquired in FA, a starter we wanted to improve our rotation, basically give us an Ubaldo performance? If we keep getting terrible FA acquisitions and our tenured guys like Davis put in zero effort because they're guaranteed money, this team is not going to have a winning season again for like a decade. And they deserve every boo and criticism levied their way for it. All I can say is I hope Karma catches up to these players and management and that they suffer consequences for what they're putting Baltimore fans through, now and for the next several seasons at minimum.
    • The writing is pretty much on the wall.  I looked at Moose's "effort" post and was reminded of how many times over the years Jonesy's effort got this team wins.  No he's not a good CF - that's due to a lack of range, not effort.  He wants a World Series win real bad.  And it ain't happening here. The Orioles should give him the courtesy of a trade.  They won't get that much in return.  But they have to get all they can as part of a rebuild this season if they want to keep the upcoming losing years (plural) to a minimum. I will root for Jonesy on another team, because I am a big fan of his.  Unless.... it's the Yanks, Sawx, or Jays.  It makes me wonder which teams can use him for a playoff run, and I'd like the board's thoughts on the matter. Of course this all depends on the front office being competent enough to trade their veterans.  I would just like some hypotheticals.
    • 7.32, 7.03, 5.56, 7.56.  Those are the ERAs of the 4 O's pitcher's that pitched tonight (5/23/18).  And of course until recently we had a pitcher who pitched for us with an even worse ERA (10.46 by Tillman!).  Truly  pathetic.
    • Due to my age, I've never really gotten to experience a truly great Oriole. By the time I was old enough to watch intelligently, Ripken was a veteran with a bad back who missed games and often struggled. I only got to see a few seasons of Mussina before he was off to pinstripes.  The best Orioles baseball that I've really gotten to experience is a Brian Roberts, Erik Bedard, Melvin Mora type of player. So, my random thought is about how I am that guy who didn't see a movie, but nods and smiles when you all talk about players like Brooks.
