A Look at the Tides Infield

With Manny Machado being suspended for the next four games, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at possible call-ups from Triple-A Norfolk the Orioles could make to replace him. Norfolk has had plenty of infielders, non-first baseman, on the roster this season but interestingly enough none of them are listed as third basemen.

The one name that has been linked to being the main guy the Orioles would call up is Jemile Weeks. Though he currently is not with the Norfolk Tides, he was moved off their roster so he could easily get to Baltimore.

Bowie Baysox Preview

BaysoxAs the Baltimore Orioles begin their 2014 campaign, the AA affiliate Bowie Baysox also start the race to the playoffs.  Looking for a quick start to the season the Baysox have jumped out to a quick 5-1 start after a 4 game sweep over the Harrisburg Senators.  After a rainout on April 7, the Baysox had a doubleheader against the Richmond Flying Squirrels, in which they dropped the first game 5-3.  Even though Bowie may have suffered their first loss of the season they bounced back in the second game of the day with a walk-off win, coming off the bat of Chih-Hsien Chiang.
