  • Orioles Sign Reed Garrett To Minor League Deal

    The Orioles announced Thursday that they’ve signed right-handed reliever Reed Garrett to a minor league contract. He’ll likely vie for a roster spot in big league camp this spring. Garrett, 30, was with the Nationals organization in 2022, pitching 9 1/3 innings at the big league level and another 47 1/3 frames of Triple-A ball.…

  • Lewin Diaz Outrighted To Triple-A

    Baltimore Orioles first baseman Lewin Diaz passed through waivers and has been outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk. Diaz has had a tumultuous offseason to say the least, after originally being designated for assignment on Nov. 15 of last year by the Miami Marlins. Since then, he was claimed by the Pirates on Nov. 22, DFA'd by the Pirates on Nov. 30, claimed by the Orioles on Dec. 2, DFA'd by the Orioles on Dec. 21, traded to the Braves on Dec. 23, DFA'd by the Braves on Dec. 28, claimed by the O's on Jan. 5 and now outrighted back to the minors. For now, the 26-year-old left-handed hitter will stick with Baltimore after he hit .169 with five home runs, 11 RBI and 54 strikeouts in 174 plate appearances in his third MLB season with Miami in 2022. Diaz will represent first base depth in Baltimore if he sticks with the organization.

  • Dillon Tate Avoids Arbitration

    The Baltimore Orioles and right-handerDillon Tate agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal to avoid salary arbitration. The 28-year-old represented one of the most revered bullpens in 2022 after the Orioles combined for a 3.49 bullpen ERA. Following a shaky 2021 season, Tate returned as a completely different player in 2022. He reduced his ERA to 3.05 while making 67 appearances across 73 2/3 innings. His role has primarily been as a late-inning reliever, and he has been solid in high-leverage situations, racking up five saves and 16 holds in 2022. If he can maintain his productivity levels, Tate will receive a similar workload to what he had in 2022. Most importantly, his fantasy value was boosted after his impressive performance, and he should be on the fantasy radar in league formats that account for holds.

  • Cedric Mullins Avoids Arbitration

    The Baltimore Orioles and outfielder Cedric Mullins avoided salary arbitration on Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $4.1 million deal. Mullins was a first-time All-Star for the O's in 2021 in his fourth big-league season, but he wasn't nearly as good in 2022, hitting .258/.318/.403 with a .721 OPS, 16 home runs, 64 RBI, 89 runs scored and a career-high 34 stolen bases in 672 plate appearances and 156 games. The 28-year-old really struggled against left-handed pitching in 2022, so he'll need to improve in that area if he wants to play every day and return to his 2021 form at the plate.
