Age: 36 2013 stats: .270/.323/.351, 6 HRs, 48 RBIs Connolly's take: The Orioles have to make a decision on their own scrappy 36-year-old second baseman, Brian Roberts. If Roberts doesn't return, Ellis is an interesting option. He's a plus defender and quality veteran who can still hit. The Dodgers declined his option because they signed Cuban defector Alexander Guerrero to play second base. Ellis will have suitors, and he ends up an Oriole only if Roberts doesn't return.
