Roch is pointing at Cabrera as the guy who goes to make room for Flaherty. I would not bet on it. With Hardy and Flaherty both having problems staying healthy Cabrera may be the teams best backup SS.

I previously said that one of the outfielders would probably be DL'd. I still think that is possible or one of them gets DFA'd.

Well done, sir. Ahead of Roch. Somebody rep this guy.

Parmalee would be the easy choice, since he is hitting at AAA and isn't an OF.

Hinges on on healthy JJ really is.

I definitely think Parmalee deserves a callup. Guy has been consistently good all year with the bat. Problem is, we already have an all-hit, no field guy....so I think Jimmy might have to be hurt, Davis or Young for that to happen. We will see.

I would have no problem whatsoever with Young DFA to call up Parmelee.

Is Paredes really that bad at 2nd?

Granted, I don't want Parmelee playing 3rd, so either he bats DH, or they bring up Reimold.

I never thought that I'd be so happy about Ryan Flaherty returning, but this is very welcome news. It means that Steve Pearce can be the everyday right fielder and that Delmon Young can return to his proper pinch hitting/platoon role.

No reason to keep Cabrera up. Flaherty can slide over to SS and Pearce can return to 2B in a pinch, and Cabrera will be only a phone call away if Hardy is hurt for an extended period.

    • Everyone excited about hot starts this spring.  Meanwhile, not a peep about Jorge who’s crushing the ball right now.   Looks like he’s in mid April form.   Jorge, if only this could last longer than a few weeks or a month or two.   When Jorge doesn’t commit too early he’s a dangerous (I didn’t say good) hitter.   He must drive the hitting coaches crazy.
    • Basallo stands a good chance to get some at bats too.
    • Roch: Kyle Stowers broke camp with the Orioles last spring. He’s trying to bust up every mock Opening Day roster that doesn’t include him. Stowers hit his second left-on-left home run today, this time against Bailey Falter, and it was an absolute missile - launched to right-center field at a sound that hurt eardrums. In his next at-bat, Stowers singled into center field against left-hander Ryan Borucki. It’s becoming a trend going back to live batting practice. Stowers held at 2-for-2 after his free pass in the sixth. The media again wanted to grill him about his success versus southpaws. "I'm surprised you don't wanna talk about the walk against the righty," he quipped. "I honestly haven't been seeing as many righties so far for whatever reason. As you guys know, I've been having a little more success against the lefties thus far, and so I was really happy to have that at-bat against the righty. Like I said, I feel confident against both lefties and righties, but it was nice to have a successful, positive result against the righty." Stowers has done a nice job staying on the ball against left-handers and erasing the advantage. "Left-on-left, I think most guys would tell you you're kind of forced to stay on it a little bit longer and it kind of cleans up a lot of lefties mechanically because of what you have to do to have success. ... Just not giving up on that front side." The outfield competition got a whole lot more interesting with Stowers' return to it after going 2-for-30 with the Orioles last year and injuring his right shoulder and fracturing his nose on a hit-by-pitch at Triple-A. He said his spring so far is "OK, I think it could be better." "I love what I'm doing in my work, I love what I'm doing off the field," he said. "I feel like I'm working really hard. Obviously, we all want the results to be better, but I'm really happy with the process I've been putting in and just have to stick to it."
    • I wonder if Lorenzen has some sort of injury that’s preventing him to sign?  Snell and Montgomery both want $30 million a year. Clevinger and Bauer have DV/SA issues. After looking into it, it looks like the only reason Clevinger pitched last year was because he signed his FA deal before the allegations came out.
