Spring Training Invites

The Orioles have invited LHP’s Chris George and Mike Hinckley, RHP’s Jake Arrieta, Frank Mata, Josh Perrault, Alfredo Simon, and Ross Wolf, C’s Michel Hernandez, Caleb Joseph, Chad Moeller, Luis Bernardo, and Adam Donachie, OF’s Jeff Salazar, Matt Angle and Jonathon Tucker, and INF’s Scott Moore, Miguel Abreu and Blake Davis to spring training as non roster invitees.

Most of these players are being invited for depth in the beginning of camp and the exhibition season, but there are a couple that could surprise and earn a roster spot. Jake Arrieta could make the bullpen or rotation if he dominates and there are some injuries. Josh Perrault could make the bullpen with some luck, but should at least see some MLB time at some point in 2010. Chad Moeller goes into spring training as the favorite to be the backup catcher. Blake Davis and Scott Moore have a slim outside chance of being the 25th man on the roster if all goes right for them. Caleb Joseph doesn’t have a chance to make the team, but it should be an invaluable experience for the O’s 2nd best catching prospect behind Matt Wieters.
