4 Baltimore Orioles Who Won't Be Happy with Their 2013 Role

It’s almost the end of January and before you know it, pitchers and catchers will be reporting to their respective major league baseball camps as spring training begins next month.

With the 2013 season just around the corner, most of the winter transaction that are going to go through and cause an impact have already been announced and critiqued. All there is left to do is hope that your team will surprise everyone.

At least that’s my current attitude towards the Orioles.

Although they did not go out and sign a big name free agent slugger or a veteran, experienced starting pitcher to lead their young rotation, they did add a couple of key components here and there.

As of now, Gold Glove award winner and shortstop J.J. Hardy is still an Oriole and will most likely remain on the team for his third season in Baltimore.

Among some of the new faces is infielder, second baseman by trade, Alexi Casilla from the Minnesota Twins. I think this acquisition was one of the best off-season trades for the Birds because who knows what’s going to happen with the second base position.

Not to mention, Buck Showalter has a tough decision to make regarding the bullpen and how he wants to set-up his five-man rotation. Currently, there are at least eight or nine pitchers vying for a coveted role as a member of the starting staff.

There is no doubt that some of the Birds will not be happy with their 2013 roles, as I am sure there is that one player on every team who wants to bring more to the table. Here are the four Orioles I think might be disappointed with their roles on the 2013 Orioles.
