Joey Rickard is available!!

 

Giants non-tendered OF Joey Rickard.

The 28-year-old outfielder split the 2019 season between the Orioles and Giants where he slashed .226/.312/.357 with three homers, 10 RBI and four stolen bases in 189 plate appearances. He had been projected by MLBTradeRumors.com to earn $1.1 million via arbitration.

Steve Pearce is unofficially retired:

Steve Pearce told Rob Bradford of WEEI that he's "unofficially retired."

Pearce completed his 10th year of MLB service in 2019, which earned him a fully-vested pension. Coming off a rough season where back and knee injuries limited him to just 29 games for the Red Sox, he'd probably have to settle for a minor league deal to keep his career going. He'll be 37 in April and just might not want to put himself through that process. Pearce didn't really hit it big in the majors until his age-31 season with the Orioles in 2014, eventually winning the World Series MVP for the Red Sox in 2018.

Adam Jones has reportedly signed with the Orix Buffalos in Japan.

I said last offseason that I could see Jones playing in Japan before his career was over.

Good for him, I think he'll enjoy it.

Now that it has happened, I can't say I'm really surprised, but I wasn't expecting this.  Somehow, I thought some MLB team would sign him.  A big part or the Orioles getting good again after a long dry spell.  Miss you, #10.

I haven't seen anything that said that it's a done deal, but I'm honestly pretty stoked for him. If it all pans out, Adam could put up some big numbers over there.

Jay Gibbons is coaching for the Dodgers.  He got particular praise from Matt Beaty yesterday in a random Winter Meetings interview on MLB Network.

Beaty shared that in his struggles, the team gave him feedback his Exit Velocity was good, but Launch Angle was bad, and Gibbons was singled out as the club official who helped him retool his swing for improved angle.

Chris Lee landed in Milwaukee. 

Brewers signed LHP Chris Lee to a minor league contract.

Lee, 27, struggled in the Orioles' system in 2019 with a 5.85 ERA over 19 relief outings between the Double-A and Triple-A levels before being released in July. The 2011 fourth-round pick was once one of the better prospects in the Baltimore system, but he's nothing more than organizational depth at this point in his career.
