mdbdotcom Posted February 25, 2015 Share Posted February 25, 2015 With the exception of the core players who are guaranteed a full-time job if healthy (Jones, Machado, Hardy, Wieters, Davis), every slot on the team has more capable players competing for it than there are roster spots available. Corner outfield, DH, & reserve outfield (7 for 5 slots): De Aza, Snider, Pearce, Lough, Young, Hassan, Reimold 2b & infield reserve (4 for 2): Schoop, Cabrera, Flaherty, Navarro Backup catcher (5 for 1): Joseph, Clevenger, Arencibia, Lavarnway, Ward Starting rotation (6 for 5): Tillman, Gausman, Chen, Norris, Gonzalez, Jimenez Bullpen (10 for 7): Britton, O'Day, Hunter, Brach, Webb, (Wesley) Wright, Matusz, McFarland, plus Rule 5s Verritt and Garcia Can anyone remember a time when the Orioles had so many options among players who actually might make a contribution? This is in sharp contrast to those 14 dark spring trainings when we wondered if the Orioles would be able to put starters on the field who would even be subs for other teams. When the music stops playing, a lot of players won't have seats, but I definitely like this tune. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
