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

    • If you think trading Villar for scraps is a good idea (which is the same thing as "cash dumping" Jim Johnson, btw), then non-tendering him really isn't a big leap from there and it likely has the same end result. My point in all of this has been that non-tendering Villar to save money isn't some preposterous outcome. It's very defensible, and it's possible that no other team wants to touch him at his arb-salary while giving up anything of potential future value in return.
    • I think Luke's pretty high on Cumberland.  But other than that I generally agree with your take.
    • Major leagues definitely needs the minor leagues.  Players don't go from college straight to MLB.  Scrimmages are not going to make you major league ready.  It would cost them even more money to have games without fans. Plus how much would it cost to shuttle players back  and forth from Florida to say Detroit?   I think you are truly under estimating the value minor league baseball provides to MLB. I think this is all about the lawsuit from minor league players saying they are being paid below minimum wage.  I guess a simpler solution is lower the amount of bonuses you pay drafted players and increase salaries.  That would make the pay more equitable.  And provide housing for the players.  And cater their food.     
    • I hate to ruin this guy’s narrative, but Kevin Goldstein is hardly one of the “young finance and Wall Street bros.”    I don’t know exactly how old he is, but he’s got a 21-year old son, and so far as I know, he has no background on Wall Street or finance, having previously been a long-standing scouting guru for Baseball Prospectus.   And, he didn’t “immediately” send out his email after getting hired; he’d been working for the Astros for 5 years at that point.   
    • Just based on the eye test, this is the best team in football.  They are a more complete team than anyone else.  You do worry about Jackson getting injured, but I think every player other than Brady (somehow, in spite of his middle age) is susceptible to injury at any given time.  Just looking at the schedule, I think the Ravens will get the 2 seed.  It isn't that they can't win their last 6, because they can.  I just don't think New England is losing any more games.  The Patriots are not the Patriots of old and their final 15-1 record will be more indicative of their fortunate scheduling (having Dallas and KC at home helps a lot, as does 6 games against a pathetic division).  The Chiefs are not beating the Ravens twice, especially if the game is in Baltimore.  And no other AFC team is capable of winning in New England in January.  So I think it comes down to yet another Ravens-Patriots showdown in Mass.  The good news is this may be the only franchise not scared of the Patriots "aura and mystique," but they will have to beat them twice.  Hard to do. 
    • So baseball want in increase their fanbase and tweak the game, and keep current fans, bring back old fans, and attract new fans. So you go and screw with everybody minor league system.  
    • My granddaddy shot a 72 on his 72nd birthday. I shot a 60 back on my 60th, those rotating ducks was no match for me.
