    • Donachie re-assigned by O's

      News: MLB.com reports that the Orioles re-assigned the following players to minor league camp on Friday: pitchers Mitch Atkins and Raul Rivero; outfielder Tyler Henson; and catchers Adam Donachie and Caleb Joseph.
      Analysis: Donachie is not much of an offensive catcher and has spent all of his career in the minors. At age 25, he is looking like nothing more than organizational depth and should continue to be ignored in all Fantasy formats going forward.
    • O's assign six to minor leagues

      News: The O's announced pitcher Alberto Castillo, catcher Adam Donachie and outfielder Jeff Salazar has been reassigned to minor league camp. Baltimore will hang on to infielder Scott Moore and right-handed pitchers Alfredo Simon and Ross Wolf, although they have also been reassigned to minor league camp as well. The trio will stay in major league camp to provide depth until the end of spring training.
      Analysis: These players are nothing more than organizational depth at this point. Ignore them in all Fantasy leagues on Draft Day.
    • Orioles extend six more spring invites

      News: The Orioles have extended six more non-roster invites to spring training in Sarasota: catchers Adam Donachie and Luis Bernardo; infielders Blake Davis and Miguel Abreu; and outfielders Jonathan Tucker and Matt Angle.
      Analysis: These players are nothing more than organizational depth at this point. They don't figure to make the team out of spring training and likely get nothing more than spot duty if called up to the major leagues this season. Ignore him in all Fantasy leagues on Draft Day.
    • Orioles make first spring cuts

      News: Prized Orioles pitching prospects Chris Tillman and Jake Arrieta are among the seven non-roster players Baltimore has reassigned to its minor league camp. Joining the right-handers at the minor league complex in Sarasota on Saturday are right-handers Fredy Deza and Ryan Keefer; catchers Jose Reyes and Adam Donachie; and infielder Craig Brazell.
      Analysis: Aside from Tillman and Arrieta, all of these players are nothing more than organizational depth at this point in their careers. If they get time in the majors, it figures to be as a seldom-used reserve at best. They are real long shots to stick around after spring training, so ignore them in all Fantasy leagues on Draft Day.
    • O's hand out slew of invites

      News: The Baltimore Orioles invited LHP Alberto Castillo, RHP Scott Chiasson, RHP Fredy Deza, RHP Ryan Keefer, RHP Andy Mitchell, RHP Ross Wolf, C Adam Donachie, C Chad Moeller, C Guillermo Quiroz, C Guillermo Rodriguez, 1B Craig Brazell, SS Blake Davis, INF Brandon Snyder and 2B Justin Turner to major league spring training camp in Fort Lauderdale.
      Analysis: All of these players are nothing more than organizational depth at this point in their careers. If they get time in the majors, it figures to be as a seldom-used reserve at best. They are real long shots to stick around after spring training, so ignore them in all Fantasy leagues on Draft Day.

    • Donachie sent back to Royals

      News: Orioles C Adam Donachie cleared waivers and was returned to the Royals.
      Analysis: Donachie will spend the year in the minors and won't be anyone to concern yourself with in Fantasy leagues.
    • Donachie might make squad

      News: MLB.com reports that Adam Donachie's playing time is getting cut into because the Orioles are so healthy. He's a Rule 5 pick, so he could end up going back to the Phillies if he doesn't make the O's. He's hitting .250 with a homer and four RBI this spring. "We've seen a lot of good things out of this guy Donachie," said manager Sam Perlozzo. "I'm sure we'll try whatever means we can to try to keep him in the organization. We're a little thin in catching, so we'll just see if that's something we can pull off or not."
      Analysis: If Donachie were to make the club, he would be backing up starter Ramon Hernandez and Paul Bako. Meaning his at-bats would be few and far in between. He is merely an in-season stopgap option in AL-only leagues.
    • Donachie could make club as No. 3 catcher

      News: Orioles C Adam Donachie was picked up from the Phillies in a trade of Rule 5 selections. He is inexperienced, but scouts think he could make the grade if the club decides to go with three catchers.
      Analysis: If Donachie were to make the club, he would be backing up starter Ramon Hernandez and Paul Bako. Meaning his at-bats would be few and far in between. He is merely an in-season stopgap option in AL-only leagues.
