Taylor Teagarden

Let's be fair here. Taylor Teagarden has the most thankless job on the Orioles roster. He didn't even get out of the dugout during the final week before the All-Star break because he plays behind one of the most durable and productive catchers in the game. He's batting only .111, but is it even fair to mention that when he has only played 13 games all season? He's here to play defense and handle pitchers when Matt Wieters needs a day off, and Teagarden actually does that pretty well. <br>
