Feb 06, 2019 | 7:58 AM
As the Orioles prepare to begin spring training in Sarasota, Fla., and with it the next chapter of the franchise's rebuild under the leadership of executive vice president and general manager Mike Elias and manager Brandon Hyde, the focus will finally shift from the front office to the field.
Without a major league free-agent signing and with many of the familiar faces of past years no longer with the Orioles, the cast of players who will be charged with starting the organization's transformation on the field is a unique one.
This week, we'll break down by position groups who will be in camp, and who could factor in to the team's immediate plans.
For all the turnover the Orioles bullpen experienced last summer with their trades of Zack Britton, Brad Brach, and Darren O'Day, things stayed relatively stable this offseason at the back end of the bullpen.
Outside of Dylan Bundy, Alex Cobb, and Andrew Cashner, the Orioles' cast of potential starting pitchers has barely over two years of combined major league service time — and thus plenty of questions about what they can do.
