Baltimore Orioles Showcase Prospects in Walk-off Win

The Baltimore Orioles kicked off their Spring Training schedule today with a walk-off against the Boston Red Sox. They started their high prized off-season acquisition in Corbin Burnes who looked good going one innings giving up one hit and striking out two on eight pitches.

The Orioles are back! And MASN is actually bothering to put it on TV

As the cool kids are now fond of saying, we are SO back. Actual Opening Day for the Orioles is still a month and four days away, but starting today the Grapefruit League will be under way between now and then and nearly every day in that time will have exhibition games that will hopefully get everyone tuned up for the season.

This first spring game this afternoon...

Saturday Bird Droppings: The Orioles are on TV today

Mike Lang / USA TODAY NETWORK

It’s Opening Day (sort of!), projecting the roster, and Burdick gets claimed.

Good Morning, Birdland!

Today is when the offseason truly feels like it’s in the rearview. Pitchers and catchers reporting is fun—although injuries kinda soured that this year—and watching bullpens and batting practice from side angles serves to whet the baseball-watching appetite. But today is the real deal: an actual structured baseball game. We made it!

How to watch or listen to all of the Orioles spring training games

Mike Lang / USA TODAY NETWORK

2024 spring training broadcast schedule

Fans of some teams get the opportunity to watch an abundance of their favorite team’s spring training games. The network that airs Los Angeles Dodgers games, for instance, is broadcasting every Dodgers spring game except for one day where they don’t do the road half of a split squad. Orioles fans still living for now under the John Angelos era of MASN control are not so fortunate.

On the bright side, the network...

Know Your Orioles 40-man: Craig Kimbrel

I’m not used to this sight yet. | Kim Klement Neitzel-USA TODAY Sports

If things go well for Kimbrel, he’ll be in the top 5 of the career saves list by season’s end

How he got here: Signed as free agent, 12/6/23

Two and a half months later, it’s still weird to me that Craig Kimbrel is on the Orioles. Players with Kimbrel’s career track record don’t just get signed by the Orioles as free agents every year, or even every era of the O’s. Before this, you have to go back to,...

Over the next few weeks, Camden Chat writers will be looking at the projected performance for most of the expected regulars on the Orioles roster. We’ll be sizing up what would have to go right for players to beat the projections, or go wrong for players to fail to live up to them, and polling readers for each player.

This is not a drill. The 2024 O’s will take the field for the first time on Saturday for their Grapefruit League opener.

Good morning, Camden Chatters.

The day is almost here. Tomorrow, for the first time since their 2023 season came to an inglorious end in Arlington, the Orioles will take the field for some actual (exhibition) baseball. Their 32-game Grapefruit League...

The 27-year-old, coming off a dreadful year for the Tigers, gives the Orioles some infield depth at Triple-A.

How he got here: Acquired from the Detroit Tigers for cash considerations 2/7/24

Each year around this time, Camden Chat takes a closer look at the new players added to the Orioles’ 40-man roster during this offseason. This winter, for the first time in years, the O’s didn’t promote any of their internal prospects to the 40-man, which...

ZIPs doesn’t love either of them, but this pair of southpaws has defied expectations before.

The Orioles bullpen picture is looking a little hazy these days, what with DL Hall now in Milwaukee and two starters delayed by injury (gulp). All the more reason the Orioles need a big performance this season from a pair of left-handed...

They might not be the Orioles you’re most interested in receiving extensions

Hello, friends.

There are now 35 days remaining until Orioles Opening Day. In uniform number terms, that’s Adley Rutschman days, much more interesting than some of the names from a month-plus ago. It’s also Hall of Famer Mike Mussina days, and honestly it should have been retired before Rutschman ever made the majors, but since he’s here, well, he can have what...

Kyle Stowers could still have a breakout season if he gets the chance

Injuries and a rough early start meant that Stowers hasn’t been able to make a good first impression for the Orioles

The Orioles’ infield will dominate headlines this spring, as top prospect Jackson Holliday tries to join 2023 Rookie of the Year Gunnar Henderson on the dirt to open the year. Still, there’s plenty of intrigue in the outfield as well, where the Orioles have casually built out an impressive list of outfielders behind their big...

Orioles 2024 preseason projections: Dean Kremer

Will Dean Kremer last the season in the Orioles’ rotation? | Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Kremer’s performance may be more crucial with Kyle Bradish’s injury

It’s not fair to Dean Kremer, but my current lasting memory of the starting pitcher is of him getting demolished by the Texas Rangers in ALDS, erasing his team’s slim hopes of bouncing back in an instant. I hope he’ll put up a performance in 2024 that will help wipe away that memory and replace it with something happier....

Wednesday Bird Droppings: Cobbling together the bullpen

Kjerstad has Opening Day hopes, Mullins is healthy, and Irvin is trim.

Good morning, Birdland!

There remains time for the Orioles to address the gaps in their pitching staff. With the injuries to Kyle Bradish and John Means, some roles are being reassigned. In all likelihood, it will force Tyler Wells and Cole Irvin into rotation work early in the season. That, in turn, will weaken a bullpen that already felt an arm thin after DL Hall was dealt to acquire Corbin...

The Orioles announced that infielder Diego Castillo has gone unclaimed on waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A Norfolk. He remains in the organization and seems likely to get a non-roster invite to big league Spring Training.

The evaporating role of Ramón Urías

As talent builds in Baltimore, the former Gold Glove winner could find playing time even harder to come by. But that shouldn’t mean his time in black and orange is over just yet.

Two seasons ago, Ramón Urías was an under-the-radar stud for the Orioles. His leather work earned him a Gold Glove at third base, and he wasn’t too shabby at the plate either (105 OPS+). But that production in 2022 did not lead to the sort of increased role it might have...
