Orioles' Jose Mesa: Goes to O's in Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mesa was selected by the Orioles with the 18th pick in the Rule 5 draft Thursday.

The 24-year-old right-handed reliever had a 1.93 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 101 strikeouts in 84 innings between High-A and Double-A. Those are impressive statistics, but there's a big difference between getting High-A and Double-A hitters out and getting big-league hitters out. The Orioles will need to keep Mesa on the active roster all season, otherwise he will be exposed to waivers and offered back to the Yankees.

Orioles' Pedro Araujo: Taken by O's in Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Araujo was selected by the Orioles with the 16th pick in the Rule 5 draft Thursday.

A 24-year-old righty reliever, Araujo posted a 1.81 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 83 strikeouts in 64.2 innings at High-A last year with the Cubs. Those are eye-popping numbers, but the jump from High-A to the majors is quite significant, so his production should be expected to tail off in a big way. He will need to be kept on the active roster all season, otherwise he will be exposed to waivers and offered back to the Cubs.

Orioles' Nestor Cortes: Goes to O's in Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cortes was selected by the Orioles with the ninth pick in the Rule 5 draft Thursday.

A 23-year-old lefty reliever, Cortes was outstanding at Triple-A last year, notching a 1.49 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 57 strikeouts in 48.1 innings. The Orioles have no shortage of quality relievers, however, so the southpaw will likely be brought in as a specialist, and doesn't figure to generate much fantasy value. He will need to be kept on the active roster all year, otherwise he will be exposed to waivers and offered back to the Yankees.

Orioles' Mike Kelly: Signs major-league deal with Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly signed a major-league deal with the Orioles on Thursday, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports. Per Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports, Kelly will head to Triple-A to begin his tenure with the team.

Kelly saw some success at the Double-A level in 2017, owning a 2.98 ERA and striking out 9.7 batters per nine innings. The sledding got much tougher with the jump to Triple-A El Paso of the Pacific Coast League, as Kelly had a 6.64 ERA and surrendered six homers and 26 walks across 42 innings (seven starts). He'll be entering his age-25 season with the Orioles, and should be given a chance to make his MLB debut at some point.

Orioles' Luis Sardinas: Candidate for utility role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Buck Showalter said Sardinas is a candidate to serve a utility role next season, Rich Dubroff of PressBoxonline.com reports.

The Orioles are in need of a utility man with Ryan Flaherty heading to free agency, and Sardinas could fill that role in 2018. He signed a minor-league contract with the team in October after finishing last season with Triple-A Norfolk. Throughout his career, the 24-year-old has appeared in multiple games at first base, second base, third base and shortstop. Sardinas hit just .163/.226/.163 in a 29-game stint with the Padres last season before being designated for assignment.
