Should we be surprised that Alex Wells did not get an invite?

No, not really. The only surprise in my mind was the lack of invite to Keegan Akin, but I'm wondering if it has more to do with his penchant for showing up to spring training in less than great condition.

Wells hasn’t played above A ball yet, so it’s not surprising at all that he didn’t get an invite.   Akin spent all year in AA and was Eastern League pitcher of the year and Orioles MiL co-pitcher of the year.   I was quite surprised he didn’t get an invite, but it may just be a case of not wanting too many pitchers in camp who aren’t really candidates to start 2019 on the 25-man roster.

Orioles Pitchers and Catchers now report on February 12th instead of the 13th. First full squad workout is February 18th.

One extra day might not really mean much. This gives the posters in Florida or who are traveling there an extra day to see some of the team.

Adding this here for others, so they don't have to dig (as this is now on page 7)

Melewski wrote a pretty good article today about what Akin’s been doing this winter.    As to not getting invited to big league camp, Akin said “I get it, got to work your way up there with new management.”   Good attitude.   http://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2019/02/os-keegan-akin-on-michigan-winter-workouts-2019-outlook.html

 Here’s a suggestion. Mountcastle, by all accounts, has terrible defense, and we are desperately hoping that we can find a position where he can play. The complaints about his defense are so common and so severe that it must be a legitimate problem. However, he’s a top-five prospect, so how about trying him at first base, seeing if he plays well enough there and then exploring trading him?

Trumbo plays horrible defense in the outfield.

Trumbo has consistently failed to hit when he is the DH.

Mancini plays below average defense in the outfield but has shown that he can hit when he is the DH.

My preference is that they play Trumbo at 1B to try to rebuild his value without doing terrible harm to team defense.

Mancini should DH.

Davis should start at 1B until Trumbo is ready and then be benched.

Let's just hope and pray that Davis can play baseball.

I just be glad when ST starts.

I prefer Mancini at 1st. Davis as the DH. I don't think Trumbo can be counted on.

My assumptions are that at some point Trumbo will be healthy and on the 25 man roster and that management will want to maximize his trade value (if any) by the end of July.  

But, more importantly, you don't think that Trumbo can be counted on so you're going to put Chris Davis at DH?  Davis is the one that you're going to count on out of those two.  Oooookaaaaaay....

Wasn't thinking right.

Didn't someone say he could probably play a decent second base?

    • Orioles Player of the Game: Alex Cobb (6IP, 1ER, 6K, win) Tony's Take: I was really surprised Hyde pushed Cobb back out for the 6th when he was at 100 pitches, but perhaps he knows he can't burn out his bullpen and needs his starters to get at least six innings if they can. Through two games, he's already used all eight of his relievers so he may be sending a signal to his starters that they're going to need to get through six before looking for help more times than not. Through two games, Renato Nunez and Rio Riuz have really been money so far. Chris Davis and Jose Iglesias are still hitless.
    • Up by four, Shawn Armstrong is brought in to finish off the game. Arstrong gets the bottom of the Yankees order 1-2-3 and the Orioles get their first win of the year, 5-1 over the Yankees.
    • TOP OF THE 9TH New York Yankees batting - Pitching for Baltimore Orioles : RHP Mychal Givens Pitching: RHP Shawn Armstrong   Now at 1B: Pat Valaika   Batting: RHB Miguel Andujar 0-0: Called Strike 0-1: Fly out, F6 (Popup, 6S, EV 61.3 MPH) Batting: RHB DJ LeMahieu 0-0: Ball 1-0: Ground out 5-3 (Groundball, 56, EV 78.1 MPH) Batting: RHB Gio Urshela 0-0: Called Strike 0-1: Ground out 6-3 (Groundball, 6D, EV 108.8 MPH) Top of the 9th over - 0 runs, 0 hits, 0 errors, 0 left on base; New York 1 - Baltimore 5
    • With the heart of the Yankees order coming up, Hyde decides to go with his high leverage reliever Mychal Givens despite the 5-1 score. Givens was up to the task, striking out both Torres and Stanton before Sanchez worked him for walk. Givens then got Voit to fly out to RF. Though Davis reached on error with a bad throw by SS Torres, the Orioles were unable to score keeping the game 5-1.
    • TOP OF THE 8TH New York Yankees batting - Pitching for Baltimore Orioles : LHP Richard Bleier Pitching: RHP Mychal Givens   Batting: RHB Gleyber Torres 0-0: Foul Ball, location: 7LDF 0-1: Ball 1-1: Ball 2-1: Foul Ball, location: 2F 2-2: Ball 3-2: Strikes out swinging Batting: RHB Giancarlo Stanton 0-0: Called Strike 0-1: Called Strike 0-2: Foul Ball, location: 2F 0-2: Strikes out swinging Batting: RHB Gary Sanchez 0-0: Ball 1-0: Ball 2-0: Ball 3-0: Base on Balls Batting: RHB Luke Voit 0-0: Swinging Strike 0-1: Ball 1-1: Called Strike 1-2: Ball 2-2: Fly out, F9 (Flyball, 9S, EV 80.0 MPH) Top of the 8th over - 0 runs, 0 hits, 0 errors, 1 left on base; New York 1 - Baltimore 5 BOTTOM OF THE 8TH Baltimore Orioles batting - Pitching for New York Yankees : RHP Dan Otero Batting: LHB Chance Sisco 0-0: Called Strike 0-1: Ball 1-1: Ball 2-1: Ball 3-1: Foul Ball, location: 2F 3-2: Fly out, F9 (Flyball, 9LM, EV 91.3 MPH) Batting: LHB Chris Davis 0-0: Ball 1-0: Ball 2-0: Reached on error, E6 (Groundball, 4, EV 92.5 MPH) Pitching: RHP Adam Ottavino   Pinch Runner at 2nd Andrew Velazquez:   Batting: LHB Mason Williams 0-0: Called Strike 0-1: Foul Ball, location: 9LSF 0-2: Ball 1-2: Ball 2-2: Ground out 6-3 (Groundball, 6, EV 101.9 MPH) Batting: RHB Jose Iglesias 0-0: Ball 1-0: Foul Ball, location: 2F 1-1: Called Strike 1-2: Strikes out swinging Bottom of the 8th over - 0 runs, 0 hits, 1 error, 1 left on base; New York 1 - Baltimore 5
    • With the the number 9 hitter Gio Urshela starting off the inning, and then the two left-handers at the top of the lineup, Hyde brings in Left -handed reliever Richard Bleier to pitch the 7th. Bleier does his job and gets three straight groundball outs. Though Hays led the inning off with a single, the Orioles went quietly afterwards.
    • TOP OF THE 7TH New York Yankees batting - Pitching for Baltimore Orioles : RHP Alex Cobb Pitching: LHP Richard Bleier   Batting: RHB Gio Urshela 0-0: Ground out 4-3 (Groundball, 4M, EV 86.9 MPH) Batting: LHB Brett Gardner 0-0: Ball 1-0: Ball 2-0: Ball 3-0: Called Strike 3-1: Ground out 4-3 (Groundball, 4, EV 85.6 MPH) Batting: LHB Mike Tauchman 0-0: Ground out U3 (Groundball, 34, EV 90.0 MPH) Top of the 7th over - 0 runs, 0 hits, 0 errors, 0 left on base; New York 1 - Baltimore 5 BOTTOM OF THE 7TH Baltimore Orioles batting - Pitching for New York Yankees : RHP Dan Otero Batting: RHB Austin Hays 0-0: Foul Ball, location: 9LSF 0-1: Ball 1-1: Called Strike 1-2: Ball 2-2: SINGLE (Groundball, 56D, EV 105.6 MPH) Batting: RHB Hanser Alberto 0-0: Ball 1-0: Fly out, F8 (Line Drive, 8LD, EV 86.3 MPH) Batting: SHB Anthony Santander 0-0: Ball 1-0: Fly out, F7 (Flyball, 7S, EV 75.0 MPH) Batting: RHB Renato Nunez 0-0: Called Strike 0-1: Ball 1-1: Fielders Choice at 2nd, 6-4 (Groundball, 6, EV 83.1 MPH) Bottom of the 7th over - 0 runs, 1 hit, 0 errors, 1 left on base; New York 1 - Baltimore 5
