Os announce Opening Day roster

SARASOTA, Fla.— The Orioles set their Opening Day roster on Sunday, going with 14 pitchers and 11 position players for a roster that changes immediately after Game 1 as Chris Davis’ suspension ends.

Ryan Lavarnway and Nolan Reimold were reassigned to minor league camp, with lefty pitcher T.J. McFarland optioned as the final cuts.

Pitchers on the roster are Chris Tillman, Wei-Yin Chen, Miguel Gonzalez, Bud Norris, Ubaldo Jimenez, Kevin Gausman, Zach Britton, Darren O’Day, Tommy Hunter, Brad Brach, Brian Matusz, Ryan Webb, Wesley Wright, and Rule 5 pick Jason Garcia.

Position players are Manny Machado, Everth Cabrera, Jonathan Schoop, Delmon Young, Alejandro De Aza, Adam Jones, Steve Pearce, Travis Snider, Ryan Flaherty, Caleb Joseph and Steve Clevenger.

As expected the O’s placed Matt Wieters, Jimmy Paredes, J.J. Hardy and David Lough on the disabled list. All except Paredes are backdated to March 27 with Paredes backdated to April 1.

Kevin Gausman in the bullpen? Why? Somebody help out here….

We are looking good writers will be fine when he is back

Is Jimenez the worst $50 million the Orioles have spent?

you do not know that, only 1/4 of a contract done

had you gone with that policy we wouldnt have Chris Tillman or Zach Britton, both struggled mightily at 1 point

steve pearce as well

last year I nailed the starting roster, this year I missed on Lavarnway, Webb and Gausman, just because I didn’t think they needed him till 2nd week of season and he could get starts in Norfolk.

Great job Rick you want a prize for nailing that so close

That piece of garbage Webb sucks how in the holy hell is that dick smack still in the majors?

I am happy to see Garcia is still on the roster! He is young and could def. use some minor league work, BUT I think he is going to be special and the only way to keep him was to have him on the 25 man. Best of lucky Jason
