Roster Moves during the COVID-19 Break

Recommended Posts

The Orioles made a few small transactions today, optioning Ryan Mountcastle, Cedric Mullins, David Hess, and Ramon Urias.  No huge surprises, though I guess this means Velazquez, Williams, or someone else will be carried to back up CF.

Well, this means I was right about Hess and Williams, and wrong about Urias. 

I didn’t think Mullins and Mountcastle were going to make it regardless, but for very different reasons.

I wonder when the next round of Spring Training cuts will be... June?

Down to Velazquez and Martin for backup IF. Seems like Velazquez should get it due to ability to also play OF. I had Urias on my preseason 25 man roster so that is another miss.

I have Velazquez on O’s and Martin penciled in for a full season of ABs at Norfolk.  Who knows?  We have nothing to go on and can only wait....

What about Valaika as backup infielder?  Can he play short?  I know he can play 3B and 2B.

I don't think that's correct, he's still on the spring roster.

But not on the 40. So he was sent to Norfolk outright before Spring Training cuts, but is still in MLB Camp (on paper.)

He was outrighted to Norfolk just before spring training started.

There is no way this season gets played.  

Do we have to place hopeless posts in everything?  Can't we discuss topics without all this doom and gloom thrown everywhere?

Right, I think they'd still have to add him to the 40, but he's still in the running.

I’d guess an infield of Mountcastle, Bannon, Martin and perhaps Valaika would be backed up by a middle infielder who doesn’t make the final cut (rank the springs of Herrera, Urena, Urias?).  Not a bad offensive group.  Not a super defensive group.  Maybe not that far off from the mlb club except for Iglesias’ unmatched glove and R Nunez’ pop.  Could Martin and Bannon be the ‘kind-of near future’ versions of those two? Bannon impressed me in games with his power and ability to drive the ball and then back at minor league camp just belting bombs at cage sessions.  He can hit a bit so he represents upside. I don’t know what’s an evaluator for the O’s as they make these calls.  We’ll see if/how/when they’re forced to make roster decisions
