2014 Orioles Spring Training Tracker

54 posts in this topic

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.

Bye bye Kelvin. The O's announced today that they have DFA'd the lefthander, not a surprise as he had appeared on the outside looking in for a bullpen spot.

His 40 man roster vacancy has been filled by third baseman David Adams, claimed off waivers from the Indians.

Time to update the tracker

The O's announced that Machado had been placed on the DL to start the season. Not a shocker.

This improves the chances of Alex Gonzalez and Jonathan Schoop making the team.

Roch Kubatko reporting that Francisco Peguero and Edgmer Escalona, as expected, will be joining Machado on the DL to start the year. It's also possible that Michael Almanzar could be joining them with tendinitis in his left patella.

UPDATE: Almanzar will be (conveniently) joining them
