Sent to minor league camp

68 Zach Braddock LHP - Among first cuts. Will rehab at minor league facility as he comes back from surgery - 3/7

85 Mike Wright RHP - Made a good impression during his first full major league spring training - 3/7

84 Eduardo Rodriguez LHP - Was brought over for the experience and made a nice impression on manager Buck Showalter. Will start 2013 in Frederick's rotation. - 3/7

73 Allan de San Miguel - Less bullpens, less bullpen catchers needed. Will look for a job at Bowie or Frederick this year. 3/7

60 Luis Martinez - INJURED (strained left oblique) - Never got going due to his oblique strain - 3/7

64 Zach Clark RHP - Had a decent camp overall. Didn't miss many bats (1 K in 7 IP) but batters only hit .250 off him. Probably showed Buck he could eat some innings for him if the need arises this season.- 3/11

65 Mike Belfiore LHP - Put up a 2.45 ERA in 7 IP but batters hit .308 against him this spring. Overall a decent job. - 3/11

70 Xavier Avery - Did not impress during camp striking out 8 times in 16 PAs and batting .182 while going 0-for-1 in SBs. Could definitely be trade bait. - 3/11

74 Jose Gil - Sent to minor league camp where he will battle for a spot at Norfolk - 3/14

69 Niuman Romero - Decent spring could make him an option at utility if the Orioles have need this year. - 3/14

49 Dylan Bundy RHP - Put up a 1.15 ERA but walked 6 and struck out just five in 8 innings of work. He'll head to Bowie to start the year - 3/16

78 Todd Redmond RHP - Missed some bats this spring, DFA'd to make 40 Man room. Claimed by Jays. - 3/22

71 LJ Hoes - Hit .320 in 25 PA, but only two extra base hits and never walked. He needs that power to develop or become an on base machine if he expects to ever become a regular starter in the majors - 3/17

59 Luis Exposito - Batted .381 with a .481 on-base percentage in 14 spring games but struggled defensively promoting a report that the Orioles were looking for a more defensive oriented catcher at Norfolk. - 3/20

61 Adam Russell RHP - Compiled a 7.71 ERA on 10 hits, four walks and six runs in seven innings. He'll compete for a spot at Norfolk- 3/20

55 Daniel Schlereth LHP - Did not impress putting up a 12.00 ERA in six games. He allowed 10 hits, three walks and eight earned runs in six innings. He'll try to refind it at Norfolk and still could still be a left-handed reliever option some time this year if he puts it back together. - 3/20

35 Danny Valencia - He's been assigned to Norfolk with his option used. He hit better as the season went on and will provide organizational depth - 3/21

53 Zach Britton LHP - Optioned to Norfolk Spring ERA 6.10. - 3/23

54 Daniel McCutchen RHP - Reassigned to minor league camp. Batters hit .382 of him this spring - 3/23

58 Yamaico Navarro - Played well at several positions. Optioned to Norfolk - 3/23

37 Jonathan Schoop - Optioned to Norfolk where he's expected to play SS. Put up a .667/.714/1.167/1.881 line in seven PAs due to being out for WBC action - 3/23

6 Russ Canzler - Could be a candidate for DFA after hitting poorly this spring .250/.314/.250/.564. Optioned to Norfolk. - 3/25

72 Jason Pridie - Has made a nice impression batting .316/.350/.553/.903 over 40 PAs. He'll get a chance to play everyday at Norfolk most likely. - 3/25

51 Lew Ford - He certainly wasn't cut due to a lack of performance batting .405/.463/.649/1.112 in 41 PAs. A candidate for release at the start of camp, he's probably played his way into a job somewhere in the organization or he could be traded to an organization where he has a better shot - 3/26

75 Kevin Gausman RHP - A decent spring overall for Gausman but allowed 17 hits in 16 innings while posting a 3.94 ERA. He'll start the year in Bowie. - 3/27

45 Travis Ishikawa - started to hit a bit at the end of spring training but really was here as 1B depth in case something happened to Chris Davis. He'll start the year at Norfolk. - 3/27

63 Chris Robinson - Hit .364/.417/.364/.780 in just 11 spring PAs due to the WBC. He'll fight for playing time at Norfolk or Bowie as organizational defensive catching depth. - 3/27

25 Trayvon Robinson - INJURED (back) : Still dealing with a lower back strain, Robinson was sent to minor league camp. If his back allows, he'll open at Norfolk. - 3/29

60 Chris Dickerson - INJURED (strained achilles) Sent to Norfolk after a solid spring. Should find time with the big league club this season. - 3/30

36 Conor Jackson - Was beaten out by Steve Pearce, but could very well see big league time this season. - 3/30

27 Mark Hendrickson LHP - Will pitch at Norfolk and be left-handed relief depth - 3/28

48 Jair Jurrjens RHP - INJURED (Back contusion) Will start the year in Norfolk's rotation. - 3/31

I'm a little surprised you don't consider BRob to be a lock for the 25-man roster. If he doesn't break with the O's, where else could he go? DL? Extended ST?

Great stuff!

I just think there's a chance he retires or gets put on the DL so he can "rehab" a while longer if he struggles this spring. If he's healthy and contributing he's a lock.

    • While it wasn’t his best outing, I was glad to see Kremer hang in there for 5+ innings and give the O’s a chance to win, after Lyles and Bradish both seemed to show after-effects of their previous long outings.   The HR that Verdugo hit into the first row by the Pesky pole was about as cheap a homer as you’ll ever see.   Literally a HR in Fenway and no other major league park.    Also a good job by Akin, coming in with nobody out and not letting either of the inherited runners on 1st and 3rd score, keeping Kremer’s runs allowed line to a minimum.    
    • You guys are right in terms of WAR, so I was just curious where Santander ranked by position. Per ESPN, Santander ranks: 1. 11th in OPS for all MLB outfielders. I couldn't believe this, but it's true. 2. If he qualified as DH, that same OPS would rank 2nd in MLB. Yes, those numbers can move for any number of reasons, but he certainly looks like he could be one of the top DHs in MLB. WAR doesn't value that very highly, but I don't really care about that. Not all stats are always helpful. To Frobby's point, if he's replaced by a better defensive outfielder with a decent bat, it could be a really nice net positive move. https://www.espn.com/mlb/stats/player/_/position/of/table/batting/sort/OPS/dir/desc
    • Seems ridiculous to me.  But then again, I’ve never understood how umps decide what is a balk and what isn’t.  I doubt Bleier did anything different for this hitter than he’s done for the last 7 balkless years with runners on base.  
    • Man, this year's crop of FA 2Bs is seriously one of the most anemic FA classes for a particular position that I have ever seen. Assuming Philly declines his $17 million club option (which is very likely but not even a complete certainty), there is exactly one guy who has a sustained track record of legitimately above average production, Jean Segura, and he is ~33 and coming off a solid but somewhat down year by his prior standards. After that, there is one guy coming off a good year but with very little prior track record, Brandon Drury, and then it's pretty much all downhill from there. I suppose a team could sign a big money FA SS like Xander or Trea to play 2B if they are open to switching positions, but that would be a pretty inefficient use of resources for most teams. Or they could sign a SS and move their current SS over to 2B if they can afford to/are willing to pay market rates for a quality everyday SS. In light of all of that, I wonder if some of our potential IF excess, like Urias, Mateo, Westburg, and Ortiz, might fetch a fair amount more in trade from a MIF-needy team than they would in an offseason where there are at least a couple of fairly attractive everyday 2B options. Hopefully Elias can cash in on the situation, whether that be in the form of immediate help for the big league club or more prospects to keep the future talent pipeline pumping. Either way, we definitely seem to be in a strong position heading into the offseason.
    • Ben Clemens did an interesting study of how catchers’ speed drops off compared to other positions.   His conclusion: catchers’ speed doesn’t drop off any faster than anyone else’s, it’s just that they’re slower on average to begin with.  So, the wear and tear from catching doesn’t cause any extraordinary loss of speed.    The other interesting part was just the general path of speed loss for all players.   On average, it’s pretty much a constant, not something that accelerates at a certain age.  Generally speaking, it’s about 0.14 feet per second per year.  Obviously, an individual player can vary.     
    • There is no 'intent to cheat' if it's not against the rules.  Athletes forever have been taking supplements of one kind or another to try to get an edge.  As long as it's legal and not against the rules then no problem.
