Orioles | Baltimore won't sign Gallardo Friday

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 16:18:32 -0800

Free-agent SP Yovani Gallardo (Rangers) is not expected to sign a deal with the Baltimore Orioles Friday, Feb. 12. There is still work to be done to reach an agreement, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: All signs point to Gallardo eventually signing with the O's. Don't let his 3.42 ERA with the Texas Rangers in 2015 fool you. He lost some velocity on his fastball and will be pitching in another bad environment for hurlers. Let someone else take the chance on him in a deep mixed league.

Orioles | Balto interested in Pedro Alvarez

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 18:45:51 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles are interested in free-agent 1B Pedro Alvarez (Pirates), sources said Wednesday, Feb. 10.

Fantasy Tip: The O's are looking to add a bat, and have interest in Cincinnati's Jay Bruce and free-agent Dexter Fowler. Baltimore might not have the prospects for Bruce, so they could settle on Alvarez or Fowler, perhaps both, depending on the money which is always important in Baltimore. Alvarez still has a little bit of pop and could help AL-only fantasy owners.

Orioles | Update on Yovani Gallardo and O's

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 15:37:30 -0800

Updating a previous report, Free-agent SP Yovani Gallardo (Rangers) and the Baltimore Orioles are deep in discussions about a deal that would be in the range of $40 million to $45 million.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo was fortunate to post a sub-4.00 ERA in Texas last year with declining velocity. A move to another hitter-friendly environment is dicey, and regression seems inevitable. Target him only for starting depth in deep mixed formats if he signs with the O's.

Orioles | Baltimore eyeing Jay Bruce

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 14:47:45 -0800

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce is of trade interest to the Baltimore Orioles, according to sources. However, Baltimore may not be willing or have the prospect package to acquire Bruce.

Fantasy Tip: Bruce has returned a .222/.288/.406 slash line over the past two seasons, which has limited the fantasy value of his average of 72 runs, 22 home runs and 76 RBI. There is upside for a bounce-back showing entering his age-29 season, and the asking price projects to be at an all-time low. You could do a lot worse late in drafts, and especially if power is a category of need.

Orioles | Dexter Fowler of interest to Baltimore

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 14:45:04 -0800

Free-agent OF Dexter Fowler (Cubs) is a potential fit for the Balitmore Orioles, if they sign free-agent SP Yovani Gallardo (Rangers), according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: A move to the Orioles wouldn't hurt Fowler's fantasy upside as much as other possible landing spots, and he could be a sneaky value again in 2016, despite a career-best season last year. He returned 2015 owners 102 runs, 17 home runs and 20 stolen bases with a .250/.346/.411 slash line. It is also worth noting, Fowler should be held in higher regard in points leagues and formats using on-base percentage.

Orioles | Yovani Gallardo progressing with Orioles

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 08:01:35 -0800

Free-agent SP Yovani Gallardo (Rangers) is moving closer to a deal with the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, Feb. 10. The proposed deal is rumored to be for three years.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo battled last season, and his 1.42 WHIP was the worst of his career. He was still able to pull off 13 wins with a 3.42 ERA, which was actually the lowest of his career in seasons he made at least five starts. His K-rate has steadily declined, but he figured out how to win with declining stuff. He's a back-end rotation guy for your fantasy squad.

Orioles | O's still interested in Yovani Gallardo

Sun, 07 Feb 2016 07:23:22 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles are reconsidering the pursuit of free-agent SP Yovani Gallardo (Rangers). The team has looked at his medical files again and is weighing the pros and cons of signing him.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo remains in free agency because the team is hesitant to part with their first-round draft pick (14th overall) to sign him. The soon-to-be 30-year-old righty won 13 games with a 3.42 ERA in 33 starts last season but also posted a 1.416 WHIP and struck out a career-low 5.9 batters per nine innings. Gallardo should be viewed as a late-round flier option in deep mixed and single-universe fantasy leagues.

Orioles | Zach Britton avoids arbitration

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 15:40:15 -0800

Baltimore Orioles RP Zach Britton re-signed a one-year, $6.75 million contract to avoid arbitration Friday, Feb. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Britton has 73 saves over the past two seasons with a 1.77 ERA, a 0.94 WHIP and a 8.9 K/9. His 77.0 ground-ball percentage is equally impressive, and Britton checks out as a second-tier closer. He is an excellent target to hone in on after the top options come off the draft board on draft day.

Orioles | Baltimore keeping tabs on Lincecum

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 13:17:20 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles are "one of several teams" that have expressed interest in free-agent SP Tim Lincecum (Giants), according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum went 7-4 with a 4.13 ERA and 1.48 WHIP in 15 starts last season with the San Francisco Giants before eventually undergoing hip surgery. The four-time All-Star hasn't posted a sub-4.37 ERA in four years and his strikeout totals have dropped precipitously over the last three. Lincecum's decline has been somewhat mitigated by the cozy dimensions of AT&T Park but would likely get exposed with the move to Camden Yards, making him a pitcher to ignore on draft day if he winds up in Baltimore.

Orioles | Baltimore interested in Gavin Floyd?

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 17:46:09 -0800

Free-agent SP Gavin Floyd (Indians) has been throwing off a mound for more than two weeks. The Baltimore Orioles had interest in him last month and they are likely to continue monitoring his progress.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd was used exclusively out of the bullpen by the Indians near the end of the 2015 season after being sidelined for most of the year with a stress fracture in his right elbow, posting a 2.70 ERA in seven appearances. He is completely healthy now but is nothing more than a fringe option in single-universe leagues.

Orioles | Odrisamer Despaigne sent to O's

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 10:24:41 -0800

San Diego Padres SP Odrisamer Despaigne was acquired by the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, Feb. 4, in exchange for SP Jean Cosme.

Fantasy Tip: Despaigne had an ugly 5.80 ERA with the Friars last season, and his prospects moving to Camden Yards don't look well. He's a fringe AL-only option.

Orioles | Baltimore interested in Andrew Cashner

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 10:49:28 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles are interested in San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner, who will become a free agent after the 2016 season.

Fantasy Tip: Cashner had a down year in 2015 with a 6-16 record and 4.34 ERA in a career-high 184 2/3 innings. However, he still has good swing-and-miss stuff (8.0 strikeouts per nine) but must show better control. A move to hitter-friendly Camden Yards would further put a damper on his fantasy value coming off a disappointing season.

Orioles | Dylan Bundy throws

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 06:20:04 -0800

Baltimore Orioles SP Dylan Bundy (shoulder, forearm) threw 20 fastballs off a mound last week without any pain in his shoulder or forearm.

Fantasy Tip: Bundy is out of minor league options, and he'll be in the bullpen if he makes the team. He's one to keep on your watch list and potentially snag off waivers.

Orioles | Several hurlers to battle for No. 5 spot

Sun, 24 Jan 2016 07:42:34 -0800

Baltimore Orioles SPs Tyler Wilson, Mike Wright, Vance Worley and Chris Jones could battle for the No. 5 spot in the starting rotation if the team decides to use an in-house candidate for the job.

Fantasy Tip: Baltimore had been rumored to have interest in free-agent SP Yovani Gallardo (Rangers) but they would have to part with their first-round draft pick if they signed him, making it increasingly likely that they will fill the void with someone already inside the organization. All of the current candidates are nothing more than late-round fliers in AL-only fantasy leagues.

Orioles | Chris Davis with big deferrals

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 10:46:14 -0800

Updating previous reports, Baltimore Orioles 1B/OF Chris Davis will receive $3.5 million per year from 2023-32 and $1.4M per year from 2033-37 to account for the $42 million he deferred.

Fantasy Tip: Davis will be a low-end OF1 option due to his big power in that ballpark.
