Adaptability from Wei-Yin Chen and Tsuyoshi Wada

Even though the Orioles didn't make the splash move fans were craving, they did invest more than $19.5 million in guaranteed money in signing the Chen (left), 26, and Wada, 30. Under new executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette, the Orioles jumped into the international market, and both righties are expected to be major contributors this season. Sometimes it takes a while for players coming over from Japan to adjust to the intensity of the majors, and we will see very quickly this spring how steep their learning curves are.
