MLB Injury News:
The Cleveland Indians placed corner infielder Mark Reynolds on release waivers yesterday, according to Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer, and the next step will be offering the slugger his unconditional release. Several teams figure to express interest in Reynolds once he reaches his discounted rate, but his former team, the Baltimore Orioles, have been most-tied to him since he was designated for assignment. Manager Buck Showalter told reporters -- including Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports -- that Baltimore will continue discussing Reynolds as a potential roster addition.
Watching Buck's pregame session with media on MASN. Says O's have discussed Mark Reynolds and will again. But he adds, "We like our roster."

While Showalter and the O's will consider Reynolds, the skipper added the caveat, "we like our roster."
No matter how much teams like the current makeup of their rosters, they are willing to make additions if they think it increases their chances down the stretch. The Orioles are set at third and first base with Manny Machado and Chris Davis, but Baltimore has struggled to find consistency from the designated-hitter position this season.
If Reynolds clears waivers, he would become eligible to sign with any team. Whichever team reaches an agreement with Reynolds could sign him for the minimum, leaving the Indians to pick up a large majority of his 2013 salary.
Reynolds experienced a level of success in Baltimore, but the team ultimately decided to pass on him this offseason. General manager Dan Duquette prioritizes getting on base, and Reynolds has struggled to do taht this season while continuing his ridiculous clip of striking out. However, Baltimore could sign him on the cheap and use him in a DH platoon with rookie Henry Urrutia.

While many Orioles have had big years to put the team in playoff contention for the second year in a row, former franchise cornerstone Nick Markakis might be having the worst season of his career. The root of it seems to be a total power outage.
On paper, it is easy to say that the Baltimore Orioles pulled off a coup in the trade that brought them 1B Chris Davis from Texas. They traded RHP Koji Uehara and also received RHP Tommy Hunter in the July 31, 2011 trade. The fact that Uehara left the Rangers after the 2012 season to sign with the Boston Red Sox as a free agent makes it a clear win for the Orioles. Davis has had...

Andrelton Simmons of the Atlanta Braves and Manny Machado of the Baltimore Orioles are both in their second seasons and first full seasons. Simmons is 23 and Machado is 21. And both are already the best fielders at their positions in baseball. In fact, the seasons they are having in the field are downright historic.
We all know that fielding statistics are not yet perfect. As...
