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

    • o   There was something else in that biography that I read that pertained to Robinson finishing anything that he possibly could in which he deemed was important ........ it was the night that he got into an altercation with a cook at a diner that he was eating dinner at early in his career.   According to Robinson, the cook was making threatening motions toward him with a  knife. Robinson retaliated by drawing a gun that he carried with him to defend himself in such situations. The cook immediately started screaming for help, and that this "crazy man" was trying to kill him.   Frank was subsequently arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, and released on his own recognizance ........ and then promptly went back to that same diner to finish his dinner.   o
    • o   If I was psyched enough to travel to Boston to see the last-place Orioles play at Fenway Park in September of 2009, I suppose that there isn't anything Orioles-related that I won't be psyched for ........ although I concede that Spring Training games that don't count in the standings takes a lot of luster of it off for me ........ I'd rather watch the AAA-Tides in a game that counts than watch the Orioles in a game that doesn't count. That's how my fandom is wired.   o
    • I'm definitely looking forward to watching some spring training games. I love watching the minor leaguers and seeing how they handle their opportunities. 
    • You pay him more than you need to this season and then overpay him the next 3 seasons.
    • Dumb move.  He is rated as 75th best corner.  And you are going to pay him 8 million a season?  I see no point in offering him a contract now.  Did they think he would get more than 8 million a year in free agency?  What if he gets injured this season?
    • Supposedly Madison Bumgarner dated a girl in high school who was named Madison Bumgarner.   They weren't related. Not the same thing, but probably just as unique. And Rougned Odor's brother is named Rougned Odor.
    • I regret that many younger Os fans never got to watch Frank in action as a player. He was as good as they come, Best Orioles hitter to ever don the uniform bar none. I recall fondly as a kid when he arrived in the greatest trade in Orioles history how unbelievably awesome he was. He imo was as good as Aaron or Mays but just wasn’t as heralded for some reason. When he won the Triple Crown I was in awe and it seemed to cement my young mind that the National League was superior as they more superstars than the AL and Frank’s performance demonstrated it clearly even more so in his clutch homers in the WS sweep of the Dodgers against their HOF pitchers. May he RIP as one of my greatest sports heroes ever. Up there with Brooks, Johnny U, Jim, Gino, Cal, Ray, Lenny,  and Eddie.
