Baltimore Orioles: News with three weeks to Opening Day
isports web - almost 2 years
With Opening Day less than three weeks away, the Baltimore Orioles’ 25-man roster is beginning to take shape. The team has made many cuts and reassignments as they get closer to finalizing the roster.
Prospects such as Dylan Bundy and Christian Walker have been optioned to the minor leagues, where they will begin the 2015 campaign. Meanwhile, players such as Jimmy Paredes and Ubaldo Jimenez are trying to cement roles for themselves in Baltimore.
This week, though, catcher Matt Wieters and reliever Brian Matusz are the two Orioles who have been getting the most attention.
The Orioles got a scare when Matt Wieters began experiencing elbow pain, a slight setback in his recovery from Tommy John surgery. X-rays came back negative, however, and Wieters should be back behind the plate next week.
Wieters played in only 26 games last year before the elbow problems forced his season-ending surgery. In those 26 games, however, Wieters was hitting .308 with five home runs
