2014 Orioles Spring Training Tracker

Suk-Min Yoon threw his first bullpen yesterday. No official word yet on wether he'll be evaluated as starter or reliever this Spring. I'd assume he'll initially be evaluated as a starter based on Duquettes comments to the press -2/21

I don't think Yoon is nearly as "red" as this indicates. He can be assigned to Norfolk to start the season and I would not at all be surprised to see him at least start the season in the AAA rotation.

Valid point. He's not necessarily a lock to break camp with the team if he doesn't beat out Norris as a starter and the O's decide to keep three out of options guys over him in the bullpen so he can continue to work as a starter at Norfolk. I'll edit it.

Heard Buck on the radio a few days ago say they will start him out as a starter.

I would assume he goes to AAA to get some exp against AAAA / MLB talent players.

With an agreement reached with Nelson Cruz over the weekend (and the signing expected to become official on Monday), the out of options OF/DH threesome of Nolan Reimold, Steve Pearce, and Delmon Young figure to face an uphill battle of making the team now. Realistically, only one of those guys will make the team barring injury, especially if Buck wants a left handed DH option in Urrutia - 2/23

Once the Cruz signing becomes official and a corresponding roster move is announced, I'll update the Spring Training Roster tracker accordingly - 2/23

Nelson Cruz signing has been made official. He will be added to the 40 man roster replacing left handed reliever Chris Jones who has been designated for assignment. - 2/24

Alexi Casilla left practice today and will reportedly sit out 2-3 days with a hamstring issue. Doesn't sound serious to me and probably just a precautionary measure. But, it could hamper his chances of making the team in the event that it becomes a "nagging injury"

MASN Roch notes:

- Cruz expected to debut this Saturday (3/1) vs Blue Jays

- Yoon working on visa; Won't see him in action until at least 3/5

- Jimenez likely to make first Spring start next Friday (3/7)

- Young Manuel's knee to be re-examined on 3/18

Schoop making a strong early impression with coaches. Still seems like a safe bet to return to Norfolk to begin the season but plans could change - 2/28

    • 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.
