Orioles 1B/OF Steve Pearce agrees to $3.7M salary for 2015
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/30/15) The Orioles avoided arbitration with outfielder/first baseman Steve Pearce, agreeing to a $3.7 million salary for 2015, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Pearce reportedly filed for $5.4 million, while the Orioles reportedly offered $2 million.
Pearce is coming off his best season as a major leaguer, batting .293 with a .373 on-base percentage, .556 slugging percentage, .930 OPS, 21 home runs, 26 doubles and 49 RBI in 102 games.
Report: First baseman Steve Pearce files for $5.4 million in arbitration
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) The Orioles and first baseman Steve Pearce have begun the process for arbitration with Pearce asking for $5.4 million and Baltimore offering $2 million, according to the Baltimore Sun.
Pearce earned $850K in 2014, when he hit .293 with 21 home runs and 49 RBI.
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.
Steve Pearce starting again Thursday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/25/14) As expected, Orioles hot-hitting first baseman Steve Pearce has returned to the lineup for their Thursday night game against the host Yankees.
Pearce, who played in the field Wednesday and had one at-bat, had been out since Friday with a wrist ailment. He lost a seven-game hitting streak with his hitless plate appearance Wednesday.
|2014 summary: As a journeyman who never amassed as many as 200 plate appearances in any of his seven previous major league seasons, Steve Pearce finally found steady work in a surprisingly productive 2014 season. Pearce's own strong hitting, along with mounting injuries in the Orioles' lineup, provided an opportunity for playing time, and he seized it. Pearce hit .293 with 21 home runs, 49 RBI and 51 runs in 338 at-bats, and he finished strong, even though he missed time over the final month with abdominal and wrist injuries.
Playing time status: Pearce has likely played his way into a regular role, but he could face competition for first base or an outfield spot, depending on how the rest of the roster pans out. He also has a history of being injury-prone, so even with a clear path to a starting role, owners shouldn't count on Pearce to play 155 games or more.
2015 outlook: Though playing time could be in question for Pearce, his power potential makes him worth targeting in standard mixed leagues. Unless there are signs that he will be relegated to a part-time role, which seem very unlikely now, Pearce is worthy of the investment of a pick in the middle rounds.
