Duquette: Orioles have internal replacements for open OF slot
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/4/14) Orioles executive vice president for baseball operations Dan Duquette said Thursday that the team has internal options on hand to replace outfielder Nick Markakis, the Baltimore Sun reports.
Markakis is heading to Atlanta, leaving the Orioles with a hole in the outfield, but it appears they're leaning towards plugging that slot internally. Duquette mentioned Alejandro De Aza, David Lough and Steve Pearce as potential options, while Dariel Alvarez and Mike Yastrzemski are minor-leaguers who could also figure into the mix. The Orioles will still be looking for outfield depth on the market, even if the team's starting replacement for Markakis is already in the organization. Duquette also mentioned the bullpen as an area of priority this offseason.
Of the major-league options mentioned, Pearce shined the brightest offensively in 2014, hitting .292/.373/.556 with 21 home runs, 49 RBI and five stolen bases in 338 at-bats in the best season of his career by far. De Aza spent much of the season with the White Sox before coming to Baltimore, and he hit .252/.314/.386 between the two teams with eight home runs, 41 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 477 at-bats. Lough hit .247/.309/.385 with four home runs, 16 RBI and eight stolen bases in 174 at-bats.
Orioles LF Alejandro De Aza on bench Wednesday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/15/14) Orioles left fielder Alejandro De Aza is out of the lineup for Game 4 of the American League Championships Series at Kansas City. A matchup against left-hander Jason Vargas has him on the bench. Nelson Cruz is set to play that position instead.
De Aza is just 12 for 79 against southpaws this season.
Alejandro De Aza on fire since joining Orioles
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/17/14) Orioles outfelder Alejandro De Aza has sizzled since arriving from the White Sox and has started every game since Sept. 7.
De Aza has hit safely in 11 of 12 games and is 16 of 49 during that stretch with two home runs and nine RBI. He has fanned just seven times.
O's acquire Alejandro De Aza in exchange for two minor-leaguers
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(8/30/14) The Orioles have acquired outfielder Alejandro De Aza from the White Sox in exchange for minor-league pitchers Miguel Chalas and Mark Blackmar, the Chicago Tribune reports. |
De Aza batted .243/309/354 with five homers, 31 RBI and 15 steals in 122 games with the White Sox.
|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.
