Orioles | Caleb Joseph odd man out?

Sun, 17 May 2015 14:26:14 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Caleb Joseph and C Matt Wieters will not likely be in the same lineup until rosters expand in September, according to manager Buck Showalter. The only time they may be in the same lineup together is if Wieters elects to add a third catcher.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) may head for the bench when Wieters returns to active duty, so Joseph owners may want fair warning to take him out of their daily lineups or bench him in fantasy leagues.

Orioles | Wei-Yin Chen towards top of rotation

Sun, 22 Mar 2015 15:20:18 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen will pitch in one of the top three spots in the rotation, although manager Buck Showalter has not indicated where Chen will land.

Fantasy Tip: This is good news for Chen, who looks like a solid selection in the middle to late rounds of most fantasy drafts. Chen will pitch in at least the third spot, meaning the likelihood of his turn getting skipped with days off is minimal.

Orioles | Jim Johnson: To tender or not?

Mon, 18 Nov 2013 23:05:39 -0800

MASN.com sports columnist Steve Melewski believes the Baltimore Orioles would not cut CL Jim Johnson from the roster by non-tendering him later this week. Even though Johnson is owed a $10.8 million projected salary if tendered, Melewski speculates Johnson is a calming clubhouse presence and has the full trust of manager Buck Showalter.

Fantasy Tip: Although Johnson did regress a bit this season, the Orioles' relief corps would be in disarray if Johnson were to be non-tendered. Another club would likely snap him up that needed relief help. Johnson remains a solid relief option heading into 2014.
