I think this will be the first year in a long time that pitching will not be the main priority of the off-season. I think the focus will be on assembling better all around infielders. Lopez’ 2020 4.61 FIP Is almost a full run better than his 5.23 ERA, and as an Oriole, it’s better at 4.84 and 3.80, which is third-best on the team behind only Kremer and Akin( who have 31.1 innings between them.) I don’t know how he does it. His BABIP is only .220,(even though he’s not being helped by the defense) but I expect he’ll be here next April.
I think that) Alex Cobb )will have a good game.
Tyler Glasnow )has split 2 games with the Orioles so far this season, ceding 3 Walks and 2 Runs over 4.67 Innings Pitched on August 1st, and Striking Out 13 batters over 7 Innings Pitched on August 25th.
For his career against the Orioles, )Glasnow )has handled them well ........ in 111 Plate Appearances over 5 Games, the Orioles are batting .187 with an OBP of .216, and OPS of .497. In 29.67 Innings Pitched, he has an ERA of 2.12 and a WHIP of 0.809.

I thought about putting Alberto here, because his defense is lousy. But he’s not easily replaced, And infield is where we are weakest. Iglesias is good, no need to change. Alberto is Serviceable for now. He’s Arbitration-eligible for the first time this fall so he’ll get a raise, but not too much.
