Spring is here and Eric Karabell misses baseball, so he is going to write about all 30 MLB teams over the next few months, covering myriad player values and his general thoughts for what he hopes will ultimately be a fruitful 2020 season.
Next up, the Baltimore Orioles!
Top fantasy storyline: No, the Orioles have not been relegated. They still exist, even if fantasy managers ignore them. Three Orioles earned 3.5 WAR and much love from fantasy managers last season. However, Jonathan Villar is now a member of the Marlins after a salary dump. Trey Mancini is on the mend after surgery to remove a malignant tumor from his colon. Surprising left-hander John Means? Well, most do not believe he can repeat his All-Star campaign. Innings leader Dylan Bundy is gone, too. What's left? Well, Chris Davis is still here and kind of will be for forever. In short, it's a mess.
