Roch: Caleb will not be back, "guaranteed"

Recommended Posts

Caleb was always one of Buck's guys.  A guy who really was held in too high regard by him.  I don't see a reason to have him on the team. Don't see him as a major league player going forward.

He had previously been beating the drum all offseason that Caleb remained an option to be re-signed, so I wonder what changed to make Roch so sure here.

Maybe Caleb is about to sign a minor league contract somewhere else.

Yeah, with both Tony's and Roch's confirmation, the following possibilities exist:

1. He's signing somewhere else.

2. He's retiring.

3. Neither, but he's been told definitively by the O's they aren't interested. 

I would say #1 is the most likely scenario.

Both #1 and #3 are equally plausible.  I don't see him retiring.  He hasn't made enough money where even a minor league deal with an opt out wouldn't be appealing to him.

It’s the right move. Caleb is a solid guy and easy to root for but at this point, it’s time to move on. Good luck to him.

Agreed, they need to mentor and grow the Catcher of the future, that is, when they draft him as #1 pick in the draft. :):):)

I've had some conversations with him and he won't be back.

With Roch or with Caleb? And did you get any reason?
