Orioles 40-man Roster Tracker

178 posts in this topic

The Orioles did not tender contracts to Eddie Gamboa and Jason Pridie. By my count, the 40-man roster is at 37 now.

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, either as a starter or long reliever?

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).

The Orioles added their new closer, Grant Balfour, to the 40-man roster. I believe the 40-man roster is now full - for the time being.

    • 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.
