Remaining Contract: One year, $10 million
Brian Roberts might only have one year left on his deal, but there's not much of a market for a 35-year-old second baseman who has played in a total of 115 games over the last three seasons due to a myriad of injuries.
His 2012 season was cut short due to hip surgery, and, according to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun, Roberts went under the knife once again only last month, this time to repair a sports hernia.
One of the best second basemen in baseball from 2003 through 2009, when he averaged a 288/.362/.430 slash line and 34 stolen bases per season, Roberts is now a shell of his former self. The Orioles would not only have to eat all of his contract, but be willing to accept a minimal return were they inclined to move him.
He'll compete with Ryan Flaherty and perhaps prospect Jonathan Schoop for the starting spot at second base in spring training.
