Orioles likely to use a combo of players to replace Markakis in RF
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/23/15) Orioles manager Buck Showalter is expecting to use a few players in right field to replace Nick Markakis, who signed a free-agent deal with the Braves in the offseason.
"We're equipped to have that be a two- or three-headed player," Showalter said of the Orioles' right-field situation which could include a combination of Travis Snider, Steve Pearce, Delmon Young, Alejandro De Aza and Chris Davis, per MLB.com. "It also allows us to keep everybody in the flow and have everybody make contributions with their skill set. But somebody steps out there and takes off with it … that's why I think Steve [Pearce] graduated a little bit from that [role as a part-time player]."
Orioles talked multi-year deal with De Aza before arbitration
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/22/15) The Orioles discussed a multi-year extension with outfielder Alejandro De Aza before going to arbitration, according to the Baltimore Sun.
The reported deal would have kept De Aza in Baltimore past the 2015 season. De Aza is set to become a free-agent at the conclusion of the year. De Aza said he was unaware of the contract talks, but expressed a desire to remain in Baltimore. "This is a great team, and I’m excited about the opportunity here, and I want to be here for a long time."
De Aza is set to make $5 million in 2015. He hit .252/.314/.386 over 477 at-bats last year.
Alejandro De Aza loses arbitration hearing against Orioles
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/21/15) Orioles outfielder Alejandro De Aza lost his arbitration hearing against the club, and will receive $5 million in 2015. He reportedly filed for $5.65 million, per the team's official website.
Baltimore has now signed all of its arbitration-eligible players. De Aza, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time, is expected to report to camp later on Saturday.
De Aza hit .252/.314/.386 with eight home runs, 41 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 477 at-bats in 2014.
Orioles, De Aza set for arbitration hearing Feb. 20
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/6/15) The Orioles and outfielder Alejandro De Aza will have their arbitration hearing on Feb. 20 in St. Petersburg, Baltimore's executive vice president Dan Duquette told MASN.com Friday.
De Aza reportedly filed for $5.65 million with the team offering $5 million.
"We made a good offer," Duquette said. "I don't know why it didn't settle. I thought that would settle the case. I'm surprised it didn't frankly."
De Aza played in 20 games for the Orioles in 2014, hitting .293 with five doubles and three home runs for Baltimore.
De Aza wants to 'work hard' to become Orioles' leadoff hitter
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/6/15) Outfielder Alejandro De Aza is well aware he could get the chance to bat leadoff for the Orioles now that Nick Markakis, who made a team-high 148 starts at leadoff in 2014, is with the Braves. However, he won't go into spring training assuming he has the role, per MASNsports.com.
"I can't just go there and tell them I want to lead off and have them just give me the spot," De Aza said. "I have to work hard. Every spring training is important. You have to show what you've got, show the team you can play.
"Me as a leadoff, I just try to play the game and let the game dictate what to do. Just go out and do my best."
As a team, the Orioles hit .272 with a .336 on-base percentage, .388 slugging percentage and .724 OPS from the leadoff spot in 2014. De Aza has primarily hit out of the leadoff spot in his MLB career, posting a .271/.334/.405/.740 slash line in 304 games.
|2014 summary: It looked as if Alejandro De Aza was doomed to split time in left field for the White Sox with Dayan Viciedo, but Avisail Garcia's early season shoulder injury created room for both hitters in the lineup. Even with regular at-bats, De Aza struggled to get on base and hit for power, but a late August trade to the Orioles changed the course of his season. In 20 games with Baltimore, De Aza put up a .293/.341/.537 slash line. He also stole two bases, lifting his season total to 17.
Playing time status: If the Orioles' lineup hadn't been decimated by injuries and Chris Davis' drug suspension, De Aza would have likely served as a backup during the final month. That could very well be his role in 2015, so De Aza has come full circle to where he was a year ago, having to prove himself to get regular at-bats.
2015 outlook: De Aza offers a little bit of power and speed, but even if playing time isn't an issue, he doesn't provide enough of either to be worth drafting in standard mixed leagues. He can help owners in deeper (i.e., 14-team or larger) mixed Rotisserie leagues with home runs, steals and runs scored.
