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.
