2014 Orioles Spring Training Tracker

Recommended Posts

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

    • Added a double as well, OPS up to .848.
    • Well as a 42 year old he would have been: (Among qualified Oriole starters) 1st in IP 2nd in ERA 2nd in WAR 3rd in WHIP   Not to mention he won a Cy Young at 37. He pitched in the AL East as a 38 year old (224.2 IP, 4.21 ERA), as a 39 year old (215.2, 3.71 ERA), and as a 40 year old (214.1 IP, 3.91 ERA).   He could be even better than a #5 starter next year. He could not be too. I'm intrigued.
    • An intellectual cornerstone of the digital age if I ever saw one.
    • My mother knew better than to serve us liver. I had smelled it, and that was enough. But when I was visiting some relatives one summer when I was about 10, my uncle insisted that I eat half of my liver before going out to play ball with my cousin and his friends. I got about three or four bites into it  when I gave it right back. We were allowed to leave for the playground right after that, and I've had no liver encounters in the half century or so since then. 
    • Yeah, it's tough to sort out Davis's problems if you have extensive knowledge about what's going on wiith him, or if you have some expertise that's relevant. But if you have neither, it somehow becomes a lot easier. 
    • Haven't eaten liver in a long time. I could never get used to the taste. 
    • o   The Yankees' road woes are what eventually did them in, and stopped them short of winning the American League Pennant. In the regular season they made hay at home (51-30), while being average on the road (40-41.) In the postseason they dominated at home (6-0), while tanking on the road (1-6.)   Their offense scored a total of 1 run over the final 2 games of the ALCS against the Astros.     Yankees’ Failure to Score Runs on the Road is Reminiscent of how They Lost the 2001 World Series (By Mike Lupica) http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/yankees/yankees-failure-score-runs-reminiscent-lost-01-ws-article-1.3580139   o
