In a fight for his spot on the roster, Flaherty steps up.

I think Flaherty goes down to get every day AB's. I think that is what is best for him if the Orioles really believe he can be an every day contributor.

Cabrera has shown to be a good defensive player in the past and a spring training with an error or two is not going to overwrite that reputation. Cabrera also gets on base at a good clip and may be the best base runner (not just steals) on the team. I don't think Cabrera has to qualify himself to make the 25 man during spring training, though I completely believe he could have disqualified himself, which he has not done.

I don't know where this idea comes from but Cabrera has accumulated a -13 DRS as a fielder, which as you may know, is not good.

The spring is not over, but it would be hard to see Flaherty not making the team. It sure looks like Schoop is the starting 2B and Flaherty the infield utility guy.

Has Cabrera done enough to even get taken north? Kind of crazy to think we're going to have a guy making 3M in Norfolk.

I think Lough starts on the DL and Cabrera takes his spot, until Lough is ready, then we'll see who stays and who goes.

Cabrera is one of these interesting cases where the coaches and scouts say he is a good defender and the advanced metrics don't. The Orioles have some familiarity with type of player in their recent history.

And you still DFA Paredes in this case?

I think Paredes will be in Davis spot OD, then they'll try and see if he gets through waivers when Davis is back. I don't see a spot for him on the 25 man.

Maybe, but Paredes only a one trick pony and at DH. Not sure, he earns a roster spot for that.

Hot hitting ST doesn't always do the same in regular season, you can ask Schoop about that.

Good thing Paredes was hitting at the end of last year than.

If the team is planning on PHing for CJ, maybe it makes sense to keep Paredes on the roster.

Not enough to stay on the 25 man roster for the playoffs.

When managers carry one extra bullpen arm, it tends to reduce the bat only guy from your bench depth.

You really need to check your facts more often. Paredes made the ALDS roster. And got hits in the playoffs.

You have also said previously that Matusz made the playoff roster, which wasn't true against Detroit.
