Baltimore Orioles SS Jonathan Schoop is expected to start the year with Triple-A Norfolk with 2B Ryan Flaherty the leading candidate for the starting second base job.

The Baltimore Orioles are interested in re-signing 2B Brian Roberts to a one-year deal. If they don't, they think 2B Ryan Flaherty is ready for a bigger role. "The way they do the metrics they profile him out as hitting 20 home runs at second base and playing pretty good defense. That's a pretty good combo. We have Jemile (Weeks), we have the potential of (prospect) Jonathan Schoop. First and foremost, we have the potential of Brian Roberts. So, I like our options," manager Buck Showalter said.
