Wright making a case for being on the 25 man roster by his production:

 

I know a lot of people dont want to see Wright anywhere near the Orioles roster.  A lot of people also have expectations that a player is going to be a finished product right away.  What we heard 3 years ago was wright had the tools to be a dominate back of the bullpen guy.  I am not going to say 4 innings in ST shows he has become that, but he is definitely a guy you cant dismiss out of frustration with the process.

Maybe fresh blood and different coaches is the difference Wright needed. Yes, 4 innings is a short sample size, especially ST innings.

Remind me, re: Kraemer’s oblique strain.

does “Oblique Strain” lead to significant surgery?

No surgery. Rest and rehab.

This is a lot of work. Thanks!

You are welcome. The plan is to keep this up after every game or two this spring. Hopefully people are enjoying it and using it. Didn't get a lot of feedback from reactions which is how I usually tell if people like something or not, so still not sure about it overall. Still, it actually helps me keep informed so it's a win-win either way.

Yeah, they are scheduled to pitched today I believe and will fill them in. neither has any real chance of making the team so I really haven't focused on them.

    • If you have money to burn you should concentrate spending on the areas that give the best return.  Have the O's done that?
    • Not a fan.  But, then again, I will trust ME's take on this.    
    • Still losing sleep over the 1.4% of draft allotment not spent?
    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970, the last day before the All-Star break, the Orioles split a double header with the Detroit Tigers.  The Birds dropped game one 7-3 but came back to win game two 13-3.  The team enters the break with a 54-33 record. Dave McNally (12-6) was shelled in the first game: 2.2 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 1 K, 3 HR allowed).  The Orioles were held to 6 hits with Davey Johnson going 2 for 4 with 1 run scored. BOX SCORE Game two started much like game one did.  Starter Tom Phoebus lasted 2.2 innings and allowed 3 runs on 5 hits while walking 2 and striking out 1.  Dick Hall relieved Phoebus and recorded the win with his 6.1 inning effort.  Hall allowed 1 hit and 1 walk in his appearance. Boog Powell, Elrod Hendricks and Merv Rettenmund all homered for the Orioles.  Rettenmund went 4 for 5 with 2 2B, 2 runs scored and 2 RBI.  Powell went 2 for 5 with 2 runs scored and 4 RBI.  Hendricks went 2 for 4 with 2 runs scored and 2 RBI.  Brooks Robinson contributed a 3 for 4 with 1 2B and 1 run scored effort as well. BOX SCORE
    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970 the Orioles defeated the Detroit Tigers 6-5.  Mike Cuellar improved to 11-5 on the year with a 7.0 inning effort in which he allowed 5 runs on 8 hits while walking 2 and striking out 2. Cuellar helped himself out by going 3 for 4 with a homerun (his second), 1 run scored and 2 RBI.  Homeruns by Elrod Hendricks (1 for 4, 1 R, 2 RBI) and Terry Crowley (1 for 4, 1 R, 2 RBI) accounted for the rest of the Orioles run total. Bill Freehan came up big for the Tigers: 3 for 3, 1 3B, 1 HR, 3 runs scored and 1 RBI. BOX SCORE
    • Variations in value on players almost don't matter if they're talented enough, because salaries are pro-rated.  The short season makes wacky things like us signing Puig for a $4 million (after the pro rata adjustment) deal plausible.  That wouldn't be worth it at all if we had to pay for a full season.  But because of the built-in discount due to the 60 game season, a player would have to be massively overvalued for him to not make sense.   edit to add: I think that most years we can assume that we'd get back at least a 45 FV prospect for a player like Puig, but this is not most years.  We don't really know if the teams will take this season seriously and offer the same level prospects for him as they would other years.  So there are definitely some unknowns and risk.  But to me it seems like a relatively low-risk, high-reward strategy to sign as many talented players looking for 1 year deals as you can, securing a massive discount because of the shortened season, and then trade them for prospects
