Orioles | Baltimore lands Mark Trumbo

Tue, 01 Dec 2015 17:42:26 -0800

Updating a previous story, the Baltimore Orioles acquired OF Mark Trumbo as part of a deal that sent C Steve Clevenger to the Seattle Mariners, Tuesday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Trumbo has always possessed 30-homer power, but he is an all-or-nothing hitter. This trade does send him to a hitter-friendly home park, so you could do worse if you are searching for power in the final rounds of drafts in season-long leagues.

Orioles | Darren O'Day could return to O's

Tue, 01 Dec 2015 11:03:28 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles have made a formal offer to re-sign RP Darren O'Day, according to an industry source. The offer has been deemed "competitive" to some of the offers he's already received. There's a possibility that O'Day could agree with a team before the winter meetings begin Monday, Dec. 7. The Washington Nationals, Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers are also interested. He could garner a deal for somewhere around four years and $8 to $9 million per year.

Fantasy Tip: O'Day would return to a setup role for Zach Britton if he were to re-sign with Baltimore. While that'd limit his fantasy value to much deeper leagues, he can remain an important commodity in the valuable pitching categories if he continues to put up stellar numbers like he has the last few seasons.

Orioles | BAL interested in Alex Gordon

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 17:37:03 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles have expressed interest in free-agent OF Alex Gordon (Royals).

Fantasy Tip: Gordon, who will turn 32 before the start of the 2016 season, hit .271 with 13 home runs and 48 RBIs in 104 regular-season games and .241 with two homers and six RBIs in 16 postseason contests. It's likely that Baltimore would only pursue him if they are unable to re-sign 1B/OF Chris Davis, who is believed to be their top offseason target. Fantasy owners should avoid overvaluing him in next year's drafts because he is reaching an age where many hitters begin to decline and because he missed a good chunk of last season due to injury.

Orioles | Baltimore interested in Yovani Gallardo

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 16:17:56 -0800

Free-agent SP Yovani Gallardo (Rangers) has been contacted by the Baltimore Orioles who are looking to upgrade their starting rotation, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: In many ways, Gallardo has bounced back with two decent seasons after regressing statistically to a career-worst year in 2013. Still, his 5.9 K/9 was a career-low in 2015 and his 1.35 WHIP isn't a fantasy helper, either. He is a low-end starter in deep mixed leagues, and Gallardo should likely be viewed as nothing more than a matchup play in the majority of formats.

Orioles | O's could consider Trey Mancini at 1B

Mon, 23 Nov 2015 18:57:27 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles are serious about trying 1B Trey Mancini as their starting first baseman if they are unable to re-sign free-agent 1B Chris Davis. Mancini posted a .981 OPS in Class AA in 2015.

Orioles | BAL interested in Gerardo Parra

Mon, 23 Nov 2015 18:56:46 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles have interest in bringing back free-agent OF Gerardo Parra. However, the team is likely to commit to him for a two-year deal at most, and Parra is likely to want more.

Orioles | BAL interested in Jay Bruce

Sat, 21 Nov 2015 11:40:03 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles have expressed interest in Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce, although a deal does not appear to be imminent, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: The 28-year-old Bruce hit .226 with 26 home runs and 87 RBIs in 157 games last season. His power numbers have remained fairly stable throughout his career, although he is just batting .222 over the last two seasons after hitting .257 through his first six years in the majors. If you can live with a low batting average, Bruce should still be available in the middle rounds of fantasy baseball drafts next spring.

Orioles | BAL interested in Neil Walker

Wed, 18 Nov 2015 17:52:20 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles have expressed interest in trading for Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker, according to an industry source. Talks have been "off and on" but no deal appears imminent.

Fantasy Tip: It is unknown who Pittsburgh would receive in a potential deal for Walker, who hit .269 with 16 home runs and 71 RBIs in 151 regular-season games last season. He may be considered expendable because teammates Josh Harrison and Jordy Mercer are both capable of handling the keystone position. That being said, Walker is one of the better fantasy options at second base and he should be available in the middle rounds of single-universe and deep mixed leagues.

Orioles | Chris Davis, Wei-Yin Chen decline offers

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 11:45:17 -0800

Baltimore Orioles impending free-agent 1B Chris Davis and SP Wei-Yin Chen both declined their one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offers from the team Friday, Nov. 13. Both players are expected to see big pay days on the open market. Chen is the least likely to re-sign with Baltimore.

Fantasy Tip: Davis is an elite power threat for fantasy owners and will continue to go off the board in the early rounds. But be careful for possible regression if he heads to a home park that isn't as friendly to the long ball. Chen is an underrated starting arm that certainly is a steal in the later rounds of fantasy drafts, and his departure from Baltimore could make him even more attractive.

Orioles | Matt Wieters to remain in Baltimore

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 11:04:41 -0800

Free-agent C Matt Wieters (Orioles) accepted the Baltimore Orioles' one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer Friday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Wieters will remain in Baltimore for at least another season after hitting .267/.319/.422 with eight home runs and 25 RBI in just 75 games in 2015. Injuries have slowed him down the last few seasons, but when healthy he has 20-homer abilities, especially remaining at hitter-friendly Camden Yards. And the good news is you won't have to pay a very steep price in fantasy drafts for the prospect of a return to those levels.

Orioles | BAL interested in Jarrod Saltalamacchia

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 18:05:51 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles are one of several clubs that have expressed interest in free-agent C Jarrod Saltalamacchia (Diamondbacks), according to an industry source. Baltimore could pursue him if C Matt Wieters declines the team's one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer.

Fantasy Tip: Any team that signs Saltalamacchia would only have to pay him the league minimum because the Miami Marlins are on the hook for the bulk of his $7.5 million contract next year. He hit .251 with eight home runs and 23 RBIs in 70 games for the Diamondbacks after being released by Miami early in the season.

Orioles | Baltimore may make run at Mike Napoli

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 11:43:37 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles could make a run at signing free-agent 1B Mike Napoli (Rangers) if they do not re-sign 1B Chris Davis. General manager Dan Duquette has been a fan of Napoli.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli has plenty of power to spare but rarely makes contact, strikes out a ton and will seriously hurt your fantasy team's batting average. That said, a move to hitter-friendly Camden Yards would appease the fantasy gods, but he'd still strictly be a corner infield option in deep mixed leagues.

Orioles | Baltimore extends offers to three

Fri, 06 Nov 2015 15:52:31 -0800

Baltimore Orioles impending free-agent 1B Chris Davis, C Matt Wieters and SP Wei-Yin Chen all received qualifying offers worth $15.8 million Friday, Nov. 6. Davis is expected to receive more money on the open market after leading the majors with 47 home runs and driving in 117 runs in 160 games.

Fantasy Tip: Davis will probably remain slightly overvalued in fantasy drafts next year because of power and RBI abilities, but he could lose luster if he departs for a more pitcher-friendly environment. Wieters is an injury risk but presents a nice buy-low opportunity as a catcher that has 20-home pop if healthy. Chen is more of a rotation candidate in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Orioles | BAL has limited interest in Domonic Brown

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 00:12:44 -0700

Free-agent OF Domonic Brown (Phillies) has limited interest from the Baltimore Orioles, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Brown needs a change of scenery, but it is not known what type of role Brown would have in Baltimore. It all depends on who is around when the smoke clears from the free-agent market. He could benefit from new surroundings.

Orioles | Dylan Bundy headed to the AFL

Thu, 22 Oct 2015 17:57:36 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Dylan Bundy (shoulder) will pitch for Peoria in the Arizona Fall League, according to a team official. He has been throwing all of his pitches during bullpen sessions in Sarasota, Fla., and is considered ready to face hitters.

Fantasy Tip: The 22-year-old right-hander, once considered one of baseball's top prospects, has an excellent shot at making the Orioles' 25-man roster out of spring training because he is out of options. Owners in dynasty and keeper leagues should keep tabs on his progress.
