There was a post on MLB Trade Rumors this week that explains how interesting of a position the Orioles are in. The article just lists 11 players on the Mets 40 man roster, who are now out of Options, yet are all pretty much competing for spots on the 25 man roster. The players below have a lot of qualities in common, like they were touted prospects who didn’t pan out. A few of them are victims of horrible Orioles management, others are victims of other teams messing up, and then being picked up by the Orioles bargain hunting strategy.

Could their mistakes be the fortunes of other teams at the end of Spring looking to plug up holes? Like the Mets bench search? Here is the list of players:

  • Robert Andino
  • Chris Davis
  • Dana Eveland
  • Jim Johnson
  • Jai Miller
  • Troy Patton
  • Clay Rapada
  • Nolan Reimold
  • Alfredo Simon
  • Pedro Strop
  • Taylor Teagarden

There are few names that jump out on the list. For Example, there are some names that the Orioles will try their hardest to keep on the roster. However, as they look for veteran bats, other names might become available in a small time trade. Nolan Reimold is a right handed bat that would interest me. I don’t know where he would fit on the Mets, but he’s interesting. I saw him play in the minors and he had a lot of pop, a LOT of pop, but he didn’t pan out in the majors, yet.

Ultimately, I don’t think this list really impacts the Mets at all, but it may make for an interesting Spring in terms of trades, claims, especially in Baltimore.
