ESPN: Predicting offseason moves for all 30 teams
What they could do: Continue rebuilding. What, you wanted something more exciting?
The Orioles were much improved in 2020, jumping from 11th in runs in the AL to eighth and from 15th (last) in runs allowed to ninth. They will likely give the young hitters more opportunities to prove themselves, but they could use some help on the pitching side. Walker returned from Tommy John surgery and looked like a decent back-end starter, while Smyly fanned 42 with just nine walks in 26⅓ innings for the Giants. Both are health risks, but worth a gamble. Rosenthal could fill the closer role with an eye on Baltimore flipping him at the trade deadline.
