Santander's journey from Rule 5 pick leads him to threshold of free agency

Santander's journey from Rule 5 pick leads him to threshold of free agency

SARASOTA, Fla. – It’s the quieter times or moments off the field that can make Anthony Santander imagine his baseball life away from Baltimore. Never when he’s working out with teammates or joking with them in the clubhouse. Never when he puts on the uniform.The games, whether real or in exhibition form, have his full attention. But he knows that free agency beckons. The 2024 season could be his last with the Orioles, who used the 18th pick in the 2016 Rule 5 draft on a 22-year-old Class A outfielder with a surgically repaired right shoulder.The last selection in the major league phase,...

Can O's starting outfield produce a collective big year?

Can O's starting outfield produce a collective big year?

They are three of the Orioles' longest-tenured players. They have been teammates for a long time and are three of the biggest contributors on the team.Again this year for the Orioles, a lot is expected from their starting outfield of left fielder Austin Hays, center fielder Cedric Mullins and right fielder Anthony Santander.With Santander a free agent at the end of the 2024 season, it's possible this coming year will be their last together in Baltimore. Hays and Mullins are eligible to be free agents after the 2025 season.The trio enjoyed helping the Orioles return to the playoffs last year,...

Santander: “I think we’re in a great position to compete and go further this postseason”

SARASOTA, Fla. – Anthony Santander was on his own for this morning’s media scrum.The team interpreter was in a meeting. Santander can handle an interview solo but enjoys having his friend close, just in case he gets crossed up.You’ve seen him at his locker postgame with his arm around Brandon Quinones’ shoulder. Always smiling. Rarely in need of any assistance.  “I’ll do my best,” he said.Santander had spent the last few months in Venezuela and joked that he was out of practice speaking English. But he came through again in the clutch.
