Age: 29 2013 statistics: .214/.268/.295. 1 HR, 10 RBIs in 62 games Skinny: The Orioles have a $3 million option (with a $200,000 buyout) on Casilla for 2014, and though that's not outlandish, the Orioles aren't expected to pick it up. Casilla never received regular playing time and didn't hit enough to stay in the lineup when given an opportunity. Connolly's take: Orioles manager Buck Showalter made a point at the end of the season to praise Casilla publicly for his professionalism and character. They sounded like departing words.
