Richie Martin broke a bone in his left wrist

Recommended Posts

Wow. Poor Richie.

i don’t know whether Tony’s roster predictions have closed yet, but I had him on the team. Not now, I guess...

Hamate bone.  Should be ready by the end of spring training.  And the deal was being finalized before the team found out.  Per Dan Connolly.  So the signing had nothing to do with Martins injury.

The Galvis signing makes more sense knowing this.

Roch quoted Elias from a zoom call saying that they already had an agreement with Galvis before the injury. Said it had nothing to do with it. 
 

He also said Martin may miss some Spring, but it would not affect his start of the regular season.

That's a relief - as long as it doesn't sap his power...

There is usually some adjustment there, initially. I remember Nick Markakis had that surgery and he came back with less power initially. It got better, but I am not sure he was the same ever again. Others have had a complete recovery, however.

Gotta get that slugging percentage back over .320.  ;)

So this pretty much guarantees Valaika a spot on the opening day roster?

Absent a major collapse by Valaika, probably. But that was always the goal, and to get Martin a half season or more in AAA.

Just doing his part to keep the O's from being one of those boring three-true-outcomes teams.  He doesn't walk, doesn't hit for power, so just that one true outcome of 161 strikeouts per 600 PAs.

Is there that much overlap in their Venn diagrams?  Martin's reason for existence is that he's theoretically going to become a pretty good defensive shortstop.  I don't know that anyone really wants Valaika to be anything but a backup to the backup shortstop.
