E-Rod cut. Potential is there but judging on his Spring performance he's still a couple years away. He'll likely make opening day start for Bowie.

Ivan De Jesus, Jr. also cut. He'll likely play SS at Norfolk.

Camp roster down to 47

According to Roch Kubatko, Buck is expected to announce the opening day starter in the next few days and Roch believes Tillman will get the nod over Ubaldo.

Yooooon finally made his Spring debut today, pitching a scoreless inning of relief against the Yanks. After the game, Roche Kubatko reported that the Orioles plan on having begin the season at AAA. He has been de-bolded from bubble status.

Roch reported that Peguero will have a brace on his wrist for the next to weeks and is a likely DL candidate which takes him out of the race for a bench spot on opening day.

Britton has seen his stock rise this Spring and looks like a potential weapon out of the bullpen if he can keep showing consistent command of a mid 90's sinker. Considering he's out of options, I'm upgrading him to lock status. The only way he isn't on the opening day roster is if he's traded.

The Orioles announced after today's game that Johnny Monell has been optioned to AAA where I'd presume he will handle the everyday catching duties.

This news makes Steve Clevenger the clear favorite to head North as the team's backup catcher. He's not a lock yet as the O's are exploring alternative options outside the organization.

Xavier Paul was also re-assigned to minor league camp this afternoon.

As expected, Yoon has been optioned to AAA. He's behind schedule and still acclimating to the U.S. game so it makes sense to have him build up some innings at AAA for a month or so and then go from there based on how he progresses.

    • 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.
