Should Orioles beef up their Wieters backups?

Who are Gregg Zaun, Chad Moeller, Craig Tatum, Jake Fox, Luis Exposito, Ronny Paulino, Taylor Teagarden, Chris Snyder and Steve Clevenger? All of them backed up Matt Wieters in his first five years as Orioles catcher. The guess is that Wieters will be back for at least a sixth year, and it’s possible that in 2014, he’ll have some new playmates. None of the nine names above...

Prime Nine: Baltimore Orioles

The Orioles have been the surprise team this year in baseball. Every time it looks like they are going to fall back to the pack they go on another winning streak. Recently, they surpassed 50 different players used on the active 25 man roster. Some of it is due to injuries and some of it is the search for effective pitching. Either way, it is a testament to a farm system...

Wieters sits out due to tight biceps

Matt Wieters is somewhat of an iron man among catchers. Quite simply, he'd rather not have a day off. However, the Baltimore Orioles' young All-Star sat out Friday after playing through a tight right biceps Thursday. He hoped to be available for Saturday and Sunday in a key series against the Oakland A's. The Orioles have some depth at the position, with Taylor...

One of the downsides of the Jacoby Ellsbury (other than the obvious losing-an-MVP-caliber-center-fielder piece of it) was that the Sox had to designate two young players for assignment. One was Michael Bowden, a once promising pitcher who flamed out as a below-average reliever in Boston. The other was Luis Exposito, a catcher some of us hoped would take the reigns from Jason Varitek...
