Whenever the lockout ends, the Orioles will officially add right-hander Jordan Lyles to their 40-man roster. The news of Lyles’ agreement with the Orioles came around the time the lockout was imposed, and he’ll have to take a physical to cement the deal when a new Collective Bargaining Agreement is reached.
The Orioles are retaining all six of their arbitration-eligible players, according to an industry source. First baseman/designated hitter Trey Mancini, left-handed starter John Means and left-handed reliever Tanner Scott were all tendered contracts.
By 8 p.m. Tuesday, the Orioles must offer contracts to their six arbitration-eligible players. The deadline was moved up by two days so that it would occur before an expected lockout begins on Thursday.
The next two days promise to be busy ones for the Orioles. Because of the likelihood of a lockout beginning on Thursday, the players and owners agreed to move up the deadline for tendering contracts from Thursday to Tuesday at 8 p.m.
The Thanksgiving leftovers are beginning to run out, due to my generosity in sending family home with plastic containers bursting at the lid and my stunning ability to fill a plate every hour as if opening the refrigerator door somehow adds a year to my life.
In those sporadic moments when I envision Trey Mancini helping to prepare Thanksgiving dinner, which I'm only assuming is an actual thing, I imagine him reaching inside the turkey for the giblets and pulling out another Comeback Player of the Year Award.
On Monday, Baltimore Orioles first baseman Trey Mancini was named the American League Comeback Player of the Year. There was very little doubt regarding who was going to win this award on the AL side, as Mancini was the ultimate comeback player in 2021.
