I wrote it many times over the winter: The Orioles have too many position players to fit on the field at once. They have to pick the ones they’re going forward with, and use the rest to shape a championship roster. We know Mike Elias can develop talent and build a highly-rated farm system, but we don’t yet know whether he can take that next step. The Corbin Burnes trade was a good start, but there’s more to be done. James McCann and Ramon Urias can’t be taking high-leverage at-bats in August, much less October.
