Biggest name is Jomar Reyes.

Link is the Athletic so it's behind a paywall.

Surprised about Ripken, he’s certainly not a prospect anymore. Also Palmeiro is a pretty big name. Look at his stats he certainly doesn’t have his fathers batting eye or sweet swing so far.

I'm not at all surprised that Ripken gets to hang around.

After watching a handful of these guys, I have to say it’s a list without too many guys I disagree with.  Absolutely no part of me would be surprised to see Trevor Putzig latch on with a new team and impress people with his skills in the box.  Also Carlos Baez and I communicated yesterday and that’s kind of sad.  He’s got great baseball energy.....
This move has been coming for a while and it’s not less impactful now that it came.  How can you not wish the guys well and hope they find a way to keep playing ball.....

I was made aware of the release on Wednesday when one of the players involved was notified of the decision.  He reached out to me and asked that I not say anything.  Obviously it was made official by the club.  It is sad for some of these guys.  I wish them all well; no doubt some may land elsewhere.

A rough day.  Sorry for that player and the group as a whole.  An extremely difficult set of circumstances for any team.

A difficult situation indeed, he told me has has so many uncertainties: recently married, no insurance, no visa.

You’ve got to feel for these guys.  They’re all facing a squeeze unlike the one they’re used to....we’re all human and helpless is an awful way to be.  Tell them the OH family is thinking of their circumstances.

Not too many surprising names, but there are a few I thought would stick around as “at least” organizational filler.

Totally with you.  It’s something that would have happened anyway on a normal baseball calendar, but 37 at once is pretty significant.  They lost a team.  It’s pretty sad.  I bet we’re eye to eye on the players too.  Just stinks......

Don't need filler if you aren't having a season.

Which I believe is the main reason for the large cut, especially now. I wonder how many were released by the club vs. asking for their release for other reasons.

This really was 1 entire team.

Sensible long range plan for the FO.  Who knows who could be in a new ownership group some day?  I imagine the sons aim to keep if they can, but I don't know it's 100% the estate will transfer smoothly or if MLB will try to influence.

I remember big hurt the first time the org strained the relationship letting go of his dad.

He did get a midseason promotion and up the OBP a tick in first AA cup of coffee.  I'd DH him in a Mets game if they'd use Tebow.

@Frobby Jose Lizarraga, typo

Angelo Mora was a signing this offseason, second time with O’s, formerly lost to the Dodgers in rule 5. Maybe the only person ever signed twice and never set foot in a batters box for the org
