2014 Orioles Spring Training Tracker

Recommended Posts

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

    • 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.
