Baltimore Orioles: 8 O's Who Are Playing Their Way onto the 2013 Roster

It's been a glorious season for the Baltimore Orioles.

Simply finishing over .500 would have been enough to call Dan Duquette's first season in charge a rousing success, but Buck Showalter's boys went above and beyond, challenging the Yankees for first place into the final week of the season and wrapping up a spot in the Wild Card playoff game, where they handed the two-time defending AL champion Texas Rangers their final loss of the season.

While every member of the roster has played a part in bringing a winning team back to Camden Yards, there are a handful of players who deserve special recognition, those who have put together such strong campaigns that they've likely earned a spot on the Opening Day roster for next year.

Some, like slugger Chris Davis, are players with immense talent and who just needed enough at-bats to secure their place in the big-leagues. While others, like journeyman Miguel Gonzalez, went from no-name organizational players to integral members of Baltimore's ALDS squad.

Here, in no particular order, are eight players who have helped out their cause in a big way, and who stand a reasonable chance of making it onto the roster for next year's squad.
