The Orioles keep 14 pitchers and 14 players on the first day list

SARASOTA, FL Orioles today a list of 28 people was set with a reservation that there are 24 hours left until the end of the term. Wire failure can lead to late change.

The club decided to divide its roster into 14 players and 14 positional players after an earlier indication that they would limit the bench to four. The extension allowed them to perform outfielders DJ Stewart and Ryan McKenna.

None of the pitchers needed to be added to the list of 40 people, which is full of orphans who choose spare catcher contracts. Anthony Bembum and infielder Chris Owings. Bemboom made his first list on the first day after the knockout Jacob Nottingham and Bo Taylorwho could stay in the organization.

Debt and George Matthew can be run or used as a utility player. Richie Martin missed the club after becoming a 9-on-22 this spring with five doubles, one home run, nine RBIs and three walks.

The third base Kelvin Gutierrez and the second base Rough smell as expected, on the list. Ramon Urias can start in short stop.

Matteo underwent batting practice today and is “much better,” manager Brendan Hyde said after he was hit on the right arm in Dunedin yesterday. Dylan Tate threw a light bullpen and is being cured of an illness that caused a sore throat and prevented him from participating in the games since March 26th.

It is expected that on the first day of the opening there will be Matteo at second base or a short stop against left-hander Rays Shane McClanahan, and Odor will be on the bench.

Infielder / outfielder Tyler Nevin was selected for Triple-A Norfolk.

Competitors in the team who competed for the job include Felix the Baptist, Joey Krehbil, Brian Baker and left-handed Cionel Perez. Spencer Watkins, Chris Ellis and Travis Lakins Sr. reassigned.

Also worth the news is Hyde’s decision to start Tyler Wells in Game 3 on Tropicana Field, a Baltimore native Bruce Zimmerman processing the house on April 11 against the Brewers.

Hyde will allow the game to dictate which pitcher follows Wales to complete the tandem.

The fifth starter has not yet been determined, including his own candidates Dean Kramer, Keegan Akin | and Mike Bowman. The registry may undergo some changes back in Baltimore, and a jug that is not on the list that has been reassigned may be called.

“There are a lot of guys in this fifth place in the game,” Hyde said.

Section 14/14 may be temporary and it exists due to vacancies at the end of the rotation.

“We’re going to play this Tampa series, let’s see how it goes,” Hyde said. “We really have no idea, with a lot of our guys, and we’re going to make some decisions, but at the moment we have three Welsh, four Zimmerman and five.”

Zimmerman’s appointment to Camden Yards may be in tandem until he stretches, “it worked that way, but it’s more of a baseball reason and he’ll be in rotation and start it,” Hyde said.

Hyde added that Zimmerman, who graduated from Loyola Blakefield School, was “really happy” with the first home start in the 30th anniversary of the football field.

“Obviously, it adds something special, being out of the area. He will have many friends and family there. It was cool to inform him that he would be opening the house. This is a special moment. “

Informing players that they have been laid off is one of the worst parts of a manager’s job, but this is countered by the opportunity to inform others that they are breaking camp with the team.

“I thought cool we have a lot of guys who have never been on the opening list,” Hyde said, “so guys to see their first opening day – Baker, Bautista, Bowman – give these guys news and smile at them faces … Bemboom has been in this game for a long time and it was emotional for him to say that he created a team. So cool moment. These conversations are funny. “

Bimbum has gained an advantage as a left-handed striker who can provide a contrast to right-handed Chirinas. Hyde called it a “big factor.”

“Also, we like the way Bimbum handles the throw and he takes the ball so well, a great blocker,” Hyde said. “He plans the game perfectly, he has a great relationship with the Pitchers. I think it helped him be here early. He was kind of ready to go, met us early. It was helpful.

“I was just amazed at what he did, not only in the game, but also from working on the side. Throws well. So we’re happy he’s with Robbie. “

The meeting with Martin had a completely different tone, and Hyde knew that the average infield had gotten a job in statistics.

“It was a very difficult conversation because he had such a good spring,” Hyde said.

“We just feel that Richie needs Triple-A at-bats and Triple-A. He has (96) bats in Triple-A, the last few years he has had amazing. Rule 5 of Double-A, kept him all year and then he gets injured and all. We feel he is progressing in attack, I feel he is progressing in defense as well. But being off the list, we just wish it started in Triple-A and you never know. Let’s see what happens. “

* The Orioles released seven junior league players this morning to create a place on the farm: pitchers Buddy Bowman and Gareth Farmer, infiltrators JS Escar, Yorkisland Alvarez and Willie Jan, and outfielders Zach Jarrett and Mason Janvrin.
