Recommended Posts

There have been questions in numerous threads about the number of remaining options for various Oriole players. I thought it might be helpful to put this info into one thread and keep it updated. A player in bold indicates an option has been used for the 2012 season. When an option is used, it is good for the entire season (the player can be called up and sent down multiple times during the year).

Three Options Remaining:

Wieters

Chen

Wada (60-day DL)

Flaherty

D. Bundy

Machado

Hoes

Two Options Remaining:

Jones

Drake (60-day DL)

Pomeranz (60-day DL)

Avery

S. Johnson

Gonzalez

Arrieta

One Option Remaining:

O'Day

Mahoney

Exposito

Britton

Matusz

No Options Remaining:

Hammel

J. Johnson

Andino

Davis

Reimold (60-day DL)

Patton

Strop

Teagarden

Tillman

Tolleson

Hunter

Quintanilla

Phillips

Pearce

Need player Permission to Option: (need five years of service time)

Hardy

Reynolds

Markakis

Roberts (60-day DL)

Betemit

Ayala

N. Johnson (60-day DL)

Thome

Ford

McLouth

I noticed that as well...what does it mean when a player signs a major league deal? I thought that meant they would be on the major league team?

If a player signs a major league deal, they are on the 40-man roster. They can certainly be sent down if they have options left. They do not have to be on the major league team (25-man roster).

Out of Flaherty and Miller, I think Miller is the better player now, but Flaherty has more potential down the road. I'm concerned about keeping Flaherty on the 25 for the whole year because there's nothing to suggest that he's good enough to play ML ball yet.

I agree completely.

I looked up the career transactions of each player by hand and had to count the number of times he's been optioned for at least 20 days during a season. Sites like this are extremely helpful... http://www.tsn.ca/mlb/teams/players/bio/?id=6314

Wow that's even more work than I thought it'd be, more rep for you.

Sorry, you'll have to take an IOU for the time being. :)

    • We are probably going to miss the playoffs by a few games. If we win a majority of our final 6 games, which games will you look back on as the most heartbreaking that could have had us in the playoffs, had we only pulled out the win.
    • Winning 2 more games looks like a long shot.  This team played over their heads for so long, I think they just ran out of gas.  Maybe we can get a couple more ace like starter performances or just play a Yankees/Blue Jays B squad.  Disappointing to finish the year this way, even though I never thought the O's would be near .500 this year.
    • But bringing in busts like Reed really hurt us bad.
    • I understand the complaints about the lineup but really the reason we came back down to earth is the bullpen.   We were close to automatic in games we were ahead of the 6th and in almost every game if the starter kept us close.    The bullpen regressed, wore out, whatever you want to say.   As a whole, the bullpen was great for most of the season.   If the bullpen doesn't go flat, we probably make the playoffs or the season goes down to the final couple of games.
    • Thanks for everything that you all do on the Hangout. I discovered it in 1999 and have been a loyal reader ever since. Not only is it the best baseball fan site, It is the best sports fan site around.    I haven’t posted in many years, but I haven’t been this excited about the Orioles in a very long time. Thanks again guys. 
    • Carrying the lineup, no.  Likely being one less glaring hole in the lineup?  Very possible.  Helping the team win more by not being close to an automatic out?  Probable.  I understand the left versus right arguments and the pitcher splits.  But I think it's been way over blown and relied upon way too much by whoever is making that decision, be it Hyde, Elias or whatever PC just spits out the lineup.  We've put inferior players in the lineup way to often this year... it's amazing we have won a many as we have really. 
    • Even if Aguilar is never on the team Stowers is not carrying the lineup vs LHP. They simply have not performed.    There is zero doubt in my mind that Hyde is not solely making decisions.
