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.

Orioles | Baltimore hesitant on pitchers

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 08:43:57 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles do not want to give up a first-round pick in order to sign free-agent SP Yovani Gallardo (Rangers), according to general manager Dan Duquette. They also haven't made an offer to free-agent SP Doug Fister (Nationals) and don't think free-agent SP Cliff Lee (elbow) is ready to pitch.

Fantasy Tip: Fister is probably the the most intriguing pitcher of the three because of his heavy ground-ball profile as depth for your deep mixed rotation, but a move to the hitter-friendly environment of Camden Yards would kill a lot of optimism.

Orioles | Yoenis Cespedes won't go to O's

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 09:05:29 -0800

Free-agent OF Yoenis Cespedes (Mets) is no longer in consideration for the Baltimore Orioles after they re-signed 1B Chris Davis, according to a baseball source.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes will be overpriced no matter where he lands this offseason after the monster 2015 season he had. He's a high-end second outfielder for fantasy owners, however, and if he lands in a favorable hitting environment he'll be that much more expensive.

Orioles | Chris Davis contract breakdown

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 09:00:46 -0800

Orioles | Zach Britton files for arbitration

Sun, 17 Jan 2016 08:01:30 -0800

Baltimore Orioles CL Zach Britton has filed for salary arbitration. He is seeking a one-year deal worth $7.9 million while the team has countered with a $5.6 million offer.

Fantasy Tip: In 64 appearances last season, Britton went 4-1 with a 1.92 ERA and 36 saves. He struck out 79 batters over 65 2/3 innings and led the American League in games finished (58) while making the All-Star team for the first time in his career. He should be one of the first closers selected in all fantasy formats.

Orioles | Chris Davis returning to Baltimore

Sat, 16 Jan 2016 06:37:52 -0800

Free-agent 1B Chris Davis (Orioles) has agreed to terms with the Baltimore Orioles on a seven-year deal worth $161 million.

Fantasy Tip: Davis is coming off a terrific 2015 season where he hit .262 with 47 home runs and 117 RBI. Davis should be in the middle of the lineup for the Orioles this season and probably will be an early-round pick because of his power.

Orioles | Miguel Gonzalez signs deal

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 11:32:40 -0800

Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez avoided arbitration by signing a one-year, $5.1 million deal Friday, Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez's numbers were a little rough, and he's a depth starter in AL-only formats.
